No, Marxism is reaping all kinds of damage in some parts of the country.

I recall reading, though I haven't found a proper cite, that the notion of a single woman being allowed to demand child support is comparatively recent, and was imposed by judges rather than legislators. I strongly suspect that notion has done more damage than almost any other, since it served to grant legitimacy to the concept of single motherhood.

IMHO, unless a mother is in a position to support a child without the aid of money forcibly taken from someone else, giving the child up for adoption would in almost all cases be better for everyone concerned. Allowing the mother to demand child support from the father will encourage a course of action which will be to everyone's detriment.

I'd have to think about that. No question though that welfare checks that forced fathers out, and increased with successive bastards, have created generations of uncivilized urban predators.
