Like many that were active during the election campaign last fall I expected to retire from public comment after the election was over.  At least until 2010.  But I guess not.  The onslaught on the family has continued with increased vitriol and the untruths continue to spew forth.  So I’m back with more opinion, newsworthy articles and such.  The fact is that every repudable social scientist now recognizes the importance that prosperous, reproductive families have in society.  For us to undermine in any way the value our society places on this unit is tatamount to slow societal suicide.  Rights are rights.  And as a people we have to respect the individual rights of all those we come in contact with.  But rights also have a situational priority.  We squash the free speech rights of the pornographer by not allowing their product in our schools.  We trample the free expressing and association rights of the smoker by making them go outside.  And if society is wise, they will curtail the rights of individuals if they threaten the prosperity of the family.  More posts on these topics and others will follow.  As always, let me know what you think.
