Is Fatherhood Being Killed so the State Can Play God? (Fathers/Authority Removed from Society)
Canada Free Press ^ | Monday, February 4, 2013 | Kelly O’Connell

Posted on 02/04/2013 9:27:42 AM PST by Mrs. Don-o

Is there a master plan for the subjugation of the human race? If so, it must perforce include a strategy for the removal of the single most influential figure in history—the Father....But who would desire such a purge?

[big snip]

Statistics: •85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes, 20 times the average.

•Adolescents from single-parent families engage in greater and earlier sexual activity.

•Fatherless children are at much higher risk of drug and alcohol abuse, mental illness, suicide, poor educational performance, teen pregnancy, and criminality.

•Most abused children come from fatherless homes; only 1/3 abused kids lived with both biological parents.

•50% of child abuse cases are committed by single mothers.

•Fatherless children are at dramatically greater risk of suicide..

•Fatherless boys have much more trouble establishing appropriate sex roles and gender identity.

•80% of youth psychiatric patients are from fatherless homes.

•Fatherless children are less cooperative and score lower on IQ tests.

•Fatherless kids exhibit significantly more conduct problems, and daughters have higher rates of anxiety or depression.

•“Father hunger” often afflicts boys age 1-2 whose fathers are suddenly and permanently absent. Sleep disturbances, nightmares/ night terrors frequently begin within one to three months after the father leaves home.

•Children of never-married mothers are more than twice as likely to have been treated for an emotional or behavioral problem.

Trenchantly, Jim Sheridan—director of the academy-award-winning “In the Name of the Father”—once stated, “If you want to destroy a society, remove the fathers.” The presence and activity of dads in a culture is so important that they cannot be removed without precipitating collapse, according to David Popenoe in Fathers, Marriage, and Children in American Society.

The whole article needs to be read: I couln't capture the "deliberate" nature of the fatherless-society phenomenon within the excerpt length limitation.

A big part of it involves killing GOD the Father. Replacement with "God" as nebulous nonspecific entity-of-niceness.

Author says fatherlessness is not a modern social design defect: it's a design feature. It's what the Powers hoped for. Therefore it is, from their POV, a success: a prone pIt produces the consequences they wanted. Therefore, from their point of view, it's a success: a prone populace: dependent, demoralized, destructured. Controllable.

Answer to the title: Yes.

I noticed the state was strong competition for men in the poor family via welfare. The state won’t gamble away the rent check or use it for alcohol and drugs. And the state won’t sleep around on you. It effectively destroyed the black family.

Then no fault divorce did the same thing to the middle and upper middle class. It’s why over 75% of divorces are brought on by the wife. Divorce IS a thing women do. And once done, at least one side (the woman with the kids) is significantly more likely to become a ward of the state. And it damages (if not destroys) the income of both sides.

And when you also define marriage as between two consenting adults who may be of the same sex, the whole reason for it evaporates like it never existed. Specifically, it was a place where the country’s progeny could be well prepared to lead the nation to a moral and prosperous future.

As it is it is destroyed. It just doesn’t know it yet. But it will. And sooner rather than later. We really have become “Babylon the great”. It didn’t go so well for them either.

Answer is yes.

What do we think the gay boy scouts is about? Anything at all to erode the power of the male figure from society, so they can scoop up the power for themselves. and participate proudly in their lusts and greed.

I had this very conversation with a friend last week. Our society (and some others) are demonizing masculinity as some kind of vestigal tail that serves no functions but negative or destructive ones.

Men in combat? Check.

Boy Scouts of America? Check.

Widespread pressure to accept homosexuality? Check.

Households with fathers? Check.

And, as you said, the ultimate father, God. Check.

This has been going on for some time. I stopped watching television back in the 90’s, and just one of the factors was they way they portrayed men. Stupid, bungling, embarrassing to their families and co-workers, etc. I know this is not new, but it became so pervasive that it stopped being a joke.

Feminists look at relationships between men and women, and they see a zero-sum mechanism. For them to elevate women (in their minds) they have to knock men down.

If you want to destroy a society, remove the fathers.

It also has to do with equality of opportunity and nature vs nurture. Libtards demand equality of opportunity. One way to do that is for the state to try to raise every child in an identical environment (nurture).The pathway to reach that condition is to first destroy the traditional family and then all forms of families, so that eventually the state can take over.The ways to destroy the traditional family are many and include gay marriage and other forms of nontraditional marriage,and removing fathers.Thanks to the increasing success of secular humanism and marxism, the libtards are succeeding.

For the gov't to truly conquer its citizenry without any resistance whatsoever, emasculation of males is job one. Eliminating the father is a tool for ensuring generations of boys grow up to be effeminate metrosexuals, with only their mothers and other females as their father figures. Not only are there no fathers in the home, there are few male teachers (and most are gay), and even fewer male daycare workers. This is exactly what's happening. America is controlled by females and emasculated males, not men. Look around. Now femmie boy 0bama (raised by a single mother and a transgender, cross-dressing nanny) is attacking our military (openly gay military and females in combat!) and the Boy Scouts to force gayness down the throats of little boys to ensure they become feminized and they'll NOT grow up to be men. Our gov't/society is doing all it can to ensure BOYS DO NOT GROW UP TO BE MEN.. The gov't views 'men' as a threat and manliness must be purged from society at all costs if the gov't is to achieve tyranny over the people.

This father rejects ‘state’ run crap. Last time I was in the state’s family services I was met by a chick with green hair. Her partner, sitting at an adjacent desk, was shaved bald. I give up.

A female-dominated workplace also ensures men assume female personality traits through assimilation. Males are NOT permitted to be men in the workplace.. It's AGAINST THE LAW. Any heterosexual male who responds to his natural instincts among females in a typical American workplace would be FIRED ON THE SPOT. Males are FORCED to suppress their instincts.. Add 'tolerance' to the mix and you end up with a wussified male.. A male can go into a female-dominated workplace a man but there is no chance in hell he'll stay that way because he is FORCED to become emasculated or he'll lose his job.

The American workplace of today is good for one thing and one thing only; THE EXTERMINATION OF MASCULINITY.

ALIEN: "It will take a few generations for our plan to work. We'll start by getting your mothers out of your homes and into the workplace. This will ensure that our schools become the mother of your children. This is where we'll indoctrinate your children to accept tyranny by our puppet 0bama. We will masculinize (de-mother) females and emasculate (de-father) males. We must remove men as authority figures as they pose the greatest threat to our plan.. We must empower your females and disenfranchise your men. We must soften your men and cause them to lose their will to fight our increasingly oppressive tyranny. We will take away your guns just to be sure. In your co-ed workplace, we will force your men to tolerate the intolerable. This will desensitize them into acceptance, and the female way. We must transform every man into an emasculated metrosexual who FOLLOWS and does not question or resist. We will accomplish this by promoting everything counter to manliness such as a homosexual agenda in your military, your Boy Scouts, etc.. So far, our plan is going well.. Shouldn't be long now.."

When this process- for lack of a better term - began, I wonder if it was just about controlling the population segment and less/not about destroying the family?

Whenever I read or hear anything like this I think about what happened to my family in our familiar past. Visit a reservation and see what happens to a people that are the property of the U.S. government.

Decay, moral and physical.

NativeSon, I know exactly what you’re talkng about. They want us all “on the reservation.” Mabe they’ll allow us a few “colorful native customs” for the sake of the tourists.

That is what Hollywood is for. Real men are only tolerated in action movies.

Wow. This country is broke and broken. Your boy’s gotta buck the odds - he simply must!

Every time I think in dread of the inborn potential in him being wasted, I don’t know what to do with myself. Your ex used to deride of her own adult daughter; now she’s doing her best to ensure the boy turns out just like her.
