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 1970sPhyllis Schlaflyexplains 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.

An excellent deconstruction, using statistics and cogent argument, to destroy the premises of feminism. She shows you the reason the country is bankrupt with Big Brother assuming the financial burden of the now cast off fathers. She quotes Coulter's devastating statistical evidence of single motherhood and its attendant societal costs. I was wary of reading this author, as my mother was a Bircher, and I found their writings quixotic and worshiping of corporate subsidies. Do not be put off, this is an excellent work of scholarship backing up assertions with empirical evidence. Schlafly writes in a very intelligent fashion laying her case out before you quite well. Take it from a philosopher who reads Sartre and Kant, she is an skilled writer. She takes you on a tour of feminism's claims: happier, more fulfilled, more successful, producing better children refuting one after the other. As a logician, I found her arguments convincing and powerful. She shows you the studies, now supressed, due to PC, of the costs to society of a group of angry women who foisted their delusions upon a generation of women. I was so impressed with this work that I ordered many more of her works. She is not the 'right wing Birch kook' that she is mocked as, I found her mind perspicacious. An Excellent Piece Of Scholarship From A Brilliant Person. Q.E.D.
