Typical of today's intellectuals. The more "educated" they get, the more stupid they become.

Unless the British return to the "traditional family" soon, they're doomed! - Paul Holbourne, Chiang Mai Thailand, Absolutely right, Paul. History has shown time and time again that the nuclear family is the best and most stable way to bring up children. It is not perfect but infinitely better than alternatives.

Unless the British return to the "traditional family" soon, they're doomed! - Paul Holbourne, Chiang Mai This is the most intelligent, apt statement I have ever read in the DM - thank you Paul...(I have often wondered myself that the "Fall of the British Empire" will be soon; due to life-styles and attitudes and that political correctness ran amok!)

Well I appreciate your 'advice', experts. I tell you what. You go and live in your version of what a modern 'family' looks like, and leave me in peace to live my life in my version. For the record, all the children born in the last three generations of our family, were born into a married husband and wife relationship. No divorces either, same time span. Dare I suggest that our version actually works? No, of course not! Married? How very twentieth century.

The family is under attack on all fronts. The stupidity of this line of thinking beggars belief. How can two men or two women celebrate anything approaching the marriage of a man and a woman providing a home for children? How can a 'unit' that does not include at least one parent and children be called a family? It has taken a number of years of undermining the roles of parents and usurping their responsibilities in what their children should be educated about to bring us to this sorry state. What I find most sick about all this social engineering is that the taxpayers, that is you and me, are paying for the production of such tripe and the children growing up today are being raised without any framework that will allow them to form stable family units or functioning communities in the future.

The destruction of the family has been a long term goal of the social engineers working on behalf of the powers that be. With no family support or influence, we become a society of sheep dependent on the state's experts, social worker's, benefits agencies,counselling,etc. With no traditional guidance, we become compliant consumers of whatever is fed to us and sleepwalk into slavery.

The traditional family was one of the targets of Karl Marx, hence why Labour and other Marxist inspired groups are targeting it through policies, the BBC and pressure groups. The traditional family was one of the targets of Karl Marx, hence why Labour and other Marxist inspired groups are targeting it through policies, the BBC and pressure groups.The 'Left' employs a strategy used in ballistics to hit a target. In order to hit a near target, one must aim at a far one. Their ultimate aim is to cause such discontent and disunity as to cause a revolution, whereby the more organised Marxists take over. High taxes, high unemployment, high inflation, low education, are all the result of Labour's strategy of creating the environment for revolution. This strategy was employed by many other socialist regimes around the workd during the last decade. Labour, Lib Dems, Unions, Media, Academics, UN, IMF, NGOs etc. have been hijacked by Marxists and being used to bring down the West. We must resist!
