For my first post, I need to lead with this: More than anything else, love breeds accountability.
Presidents, Senators or even jobs don’t do it. It is love and love only that makes us accountable foremost to those we love, and as a product of that accountable to ourselves, and then — however incidentally — accountable in turn to our nation.
After decades of the explosive onset of broken homes across our nation as inspired and enabled by an institutional left that celebrates them and a Democrat party intent on rewarding them, the empirical evidence is in and it effectively says this: The love of a committed, lead-by-example, 2 parent family mitigates disparity more than anything else.
Every time? Of course not. There are plenty of single parent homes from which kids grow up to be incredibly accountable, and plenty of 2 parent homes from which kids grow up to be incredibly unaccountable. But generally speaking, 2 are better than 1 when it comes to parenting.
Sounds pretty simple, right? Nothing too controversial there.
Well go ask the nearest liberal or progressive if they agree, and you’ll be amazed at how few of them will concede the point. In fact, the liberal/progressive SJWs (“social justice warriors”) aggressively reject the point, and they recently got a little help from the Obama-era and thus greatly politicized CDC who packaged a government-funded study on “Fathers’ Involvement With Their Children.” The study analyzes how “involved” fathers are with their children, and is used aggressively by the left in social and other media to combat the “myth” that broken homes create disparity or destruction.
The Democrats pride themselves as being “the party of math and science.” But in many cases, including this one, the left’s SJWs aggressively reject math and science. And too often they will gladly bastardize criteria to create a narrative that asserts a loosely-established half truth at the expense of a firmly-established whole truth. In this instance, the CDC has armed them with a “study” that trades an arbitrary half truth about “fathers’ involvement” for the empirical whole truth about 2 parent families.
You don’t need a PhD or grant money to accept the simple reality: When 2 parents work together to raise and provide for their kids, and when those kids see their parents honoring their commitment to each other and their family even and especially in the face of adversity, then those kids will generally grow up with more opportunity and function as better-adjusted, more accountable adults.
If you care about combating disparity in the US, then you must care about and embrace this: The single greatest driver of disparity that eclipses all others in the US is the disparity of broken homes, which unfortunately but not necessarily incidentally exists disproportionately among black Americans. And with 80%+ of black Americans today staunchly committed to voting for Democrats, it’s nothing short of destructive that those same Democrats actively deny the science on the root of that disparity.
This blog will focus on themes like that above, primarily packaged around political and social news, events and conversations.
And while I will always strive to walk in love in all I do, this blog’s foremost commitment will be to intellectual honesty that at times will be confrontational and/or controversial by necessity.
As it comes to me, it will come to you. And it comes to me often, so check back frequently.
