12:05 PM

The economic way of thinking CANNOT be applied wholesale to the family. Confusion on this point has caused terrible social policies and heartache for millions of families. Why we must understand the family correctly in order to build and sustain a free society. We’ve got to get both “love” and “economics” right for a free society to flourish.

  1. How it is a mistake to try and think of the family in exclusively economic terms. The analogy with contracts does not do justice to the complexities of the family.
  2. Family breakdown empowers the State and violates Family Justice.
  3. How the “Deep State” concept can be expanded to include the concept of a “Sexual Deep State.”
