Not Even Mom and Dad Are Safe from the Cancel Culture – The Mission to Destroy the Family
If you destroy the family, you destroy the county.
There is a direct correlation between the moral decline of our country and the disintegration of the traditional family unit.
I think we first really started seeing this when the government started attacking the black community with the Great Society Act as well as the whole welfare system, though this expanded to other ethnicities as well.
The divorce rate more than doubled following the Great Society Act as well as the number of children in poverty increased, nearly doubling.
If you think that there isn’t an attempt to try and continue to erode the nuclear family further, just take a look at this.
The following comes from an article on the Open Democracy website. Do you know who is behind this website? It’s none other than George Soros himself.
In short, the pandemic is no time to forget about family abolition. In the words of feminist theorist and mother Madeline Lane-McKinley; “Households are capitalism’s pressure cookers. This crisis will see a surge in housework – cleaning, cooking, caretaking, but also child abuse, molestation, intimate partner rape, psychological torture, and more.” Far from a time to acquiesce to ‘family values’ ideology, then, the pandemic is an acutely important time to provision, evacuate and generally empower survivors of – and refugees from – the nuclear household.
And thirdly, even when the private nuclear household poses no direct physical or mental threat to one’s person – no spouse-battering, no child rape, and no queer-bashing – the private family qua mode of social reproduction still, frankly, sucks. It genders, nationalizes and races us. It norms us for productive work. It makes us believe we are ‘individuals.’ It minimizes costs for capital while maximizing human beings’ life-making labor (across billions of tiny boxes, each kitted out – absurdly – with its own kitchen, micro-crèche and laundry). It blackmails us into mistaking the only sources of love and care we have for the extent of what is possible.
We deserve better than the family. And the time of corona is an excellent time to practice abolishing it. In the always lucent words of Anne Boyer: “We must learn to do good for the good of the stranger now. We now have to live as daily evidence that we believe there is value in the lives of the cancer patient, the elderly person, the disabled one, the ones in unthinkable living conditions, crowded and at risk.”
Now a private school in Manhattan is targeting you and your parents by fighting to break away from the terms “mom” and “dad”.
The Grace Church School, which charges $57,000 for students ranging from kindergarten to 12th grade, put out a 12-page guide addressed to the school community that bans a slew of words, phrases and even ideas.
“The goal of this guide is to provide the community with more inclusive language that is aligned with the mission of Grace Church School,” reads the guide. “While we recognize hateful language that promotes racism, misogyny, homophobia, and other forms of discrimination are already addressed in our school handbooks, we also recognize that we can do more than ban hateful language; we can use language to create welcoming and inclusive spaces. This guide addresses ways we can remove harmful assumptions from the way we interact with each other.”
Among the words and phrases that are “harmful” to children are: mom and dad, parents, babysitter, husband, wife, boyfriend, girlfriend, sexual preference, and it’s even an insult supposedly, to ask someone where they’re from.
