Book SchaflyWhen it became financially advantageous to have babies out of wedlock, the nuclear family was doomed.  In the last hundred years, the American family has been attacked, debased, maligned, slandered, and vilified by every facet of society. No family is safe from the official busybodies. At issue is a rebellion against any sort of moral code.

Who Killed the American Family reveals the concerted assault on the American nuclear family by many forces – feminists, judges, lawmakers, psychologists, school districts, college professors, politicians offering incentives and seeking votes, and more – opposed to the traditional American nuclear family, each with its own raison d’etre for wanting to abolish it. The wreckage of the American family leaves us with the inability to have limited government because government steps in to perform tasks formerly done by the nuclear family.

Veteran conservative activist and thought leader who lead the charge to successfully defeat the Equal Rights Amendment in the 1970s Phyllis Schlafly explains how changes in the law, in court decisions, in the culture, in education, and in entertainment have eroded the once-precious institution. Any one of these factors would not have been enough to impact our families, but together they added up to a mighty force.

Schlafly not only exposes the tactical charge the Left has implemented, but she offers hope and a plan for stopping anti-marriage incentives and how to restore in our culture the sacred nature of the family unit.




    1. Thanks so much for the honor, but I have to say no right now. I have already been nominated earlier and never got around to doing the “paper work” that went with it. I may just have to decline that one too..


  1. I don’t think that this particular issue is limited to America only. There is a global assault on the nuclear family.

    Perhaps you might be interested in having a look at two of my posts, which features similar ideas:

    Please let me know if you are interested in the topic. I would love to discuss it further.


    1. I have taken a lot of flack in “discussion groups” for even posting this news article. I used to teach parenting to AFDC mothers in the public high schools and there was an awful lot of… what shall I call it? Tolerance maybe? To keep getting those lucrative checks every month, girls endured my classes for as many days as were required to stay in good standing. Were those women good role models for their children? Were the various boyfriends good role models? Not in any way and the poor little children were the ones who suffered.

      I hope to get my Gravatar mess straightened up soon and maybe then we can share more ideas along these lines. Right now I have two email addresses and over 100 messages in each one. I plan to check your posts as soon as possible.


  2. I must come from a very blessed family indeed. Even where there is divorce the support around the children and the unity of the family unit is strong, and it is very rare indeed. Me and my sibs all have long term marriages. I am counting down to my 50th. Our extended family is so special. I guess I can’t blame the government, politics, liberals, which some of us are, feminists, nor any of those other things listed for the problems you describe. I just can’t relate.


    1. Of course I did not write the article, I simply copied it word for word and gave credit to the writer. However, that being said, I really have no argument with the points, but I may not agree with all the applications the author gives. One reader suggested that the wars and returning military husbands were the problem and likely that could be added to the list. Abuse may be involved and so many other things. Please consider this only as an effort to find answers.

      Thanks for your input. I am happy for your sakes that there has been very little divorce in your family.


  3. Well, I also think that men going to war, being asked to kill human beings and see things no human ought to helped kill that dream. Not necessarily that they had to do it, but that they were forced to come back and be “normal.” Today we know without a doubt a person in that much trama needs at the very least counseling and help to reenter the world. As a child I saw “american families” filled with Alcoholism and betrayal and abuse. Many of it stemmed from men who went to war, including my uncle who has a purple heart. I’m willing to bet that as well, serial killers, rapists and the like came from wars or were a child of a person who was told to go kill for our country and then come home and act like nothing happened. Then, because of the “American Family” standards women were forced to stay in these unhappy homes or become a divorcee- shun the thought.


    1. And so many more things… We cannot blame any one by itself. Families fell apart because of infidelity, unfaithfulness, greed for things rather than togetherness. Children were carted off to daycare and mama went out to work. We have come through an era where women were mocked if they even thought of being homemakers instead of professionals.
