Encouraging alternative family structures breeds misery.
Of course it does Pol.
This all started with Socialists welfare give away programs.
Done with a big heart yet destroyed the culture.
Check the charts and you will see the comparison.
Before all the welfare programs for example in the Black Communities the marriage rate was 75% plus with a father present.
Since the welfare programs started and the government encouraged and made the father obsolete in the family that percentage is now down to less then 25% being married or fathers present in the family.
The Socialists heart is in the right place but has destroyed the family structure which in return causes crime, failure and misery.
Europeans are even worse.
Since they have been the Recipients of the "Largess" of the United States for at least "one hundred years", that would be two ("Hot") World Wars... and one ("Cold") War, they are pretty much "SCREWED" when the idea of "Self Gov't." comes into the discussion.
Eve now they are part of the "European Union" merely an extension of the Socialism that's been breeding since the days of the FRENCH REVOLUTION ! (1789)
And the Frogs just continue to get "more comfortable" with every Generation !
Hell the French get #6 WEEKS OF PAID Vacation every summer !
NICE but it reflects their "Work ethic" alright !
With that being said: Germany & Poland are probably the ONLY nations with any "Ethic" at all for working.
The rest wait for the State to step in and "Comfort" them !
Can't shoot 'em all....................... like they used to, it's "INSENSITIVE" !)
