Upon Hope: How Socialism Helped Destroy Marriage

“In the past men competed against each other to show that they could provide for themselves and a wife and a family. But because people fall in love and they talk about love it can hid the reality and that reality is that love often comes afterwards, after the man has proven that he can provide. It’s not the only thing a women looks for, but it is a thing. So what happens when the Government comes along and gives women money for falling pregnant?

In effect these women end up “marrying” the Government instead of marrying a man. The Government provides for her and poor men simply cannot compete. A man who cannot find work, or who hits hard times is now competing against the Government.

For men who are better off this isn’t a problem. The Government is rich compared to even the richest man, but unlike the richest man who only spends his money on one wife. The Government has countless “wives” it must provide for. So even men of modest means can compete because he can still provide better than the Government. It is only poor men and those who hit hard times that need worry about this. Once, not that long ago, even most poor men could marry, but that is now lost. Now men and women live in separate houses, both provided for one way or the other by money from the Government.”
