N.O.W, Divorce & the US Economy
US government spending now exceeds the combined federal spending of France, Germany, England, Spain, Italy, Japan, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, Russia, Sweden, & Australia.
A review and analysis of the skyrocketing US divorce rate, parallelling a corresponding increase in government spending as a percent of GDP, and a chronic drop in education and economic standing and quality suggests that US social policy needs a radical correction. As the US divorce rate climbed, government spending exceeded the combined federal spending of France, Germany, England, Spain, Italy, Japan, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea, Russia, Sweden, & Australia.
The Increasing US Divorce Rate
Feminism has been the underpinning of a ten-fold increase in the US divorce rate and more than a three-fold increase in government spending as a percent of GDP.

This strongly suggests a link between divorce rates and government spending. Is it a reasonable conclusion that reducing the divorce rate would also reduce government spending?
World Divorce Rates
While feminists blast patriarchal countries for their failure to achieve "equality", with rare exceptions those countries with patriarchal values have low divorce rates, low government spending, and growing, healthy economies and societies. Every country which has experimented with "equality" has experienced a rapid implosion of both its economy and its social stability.

Per the Concise Columbia Encyclopedia:
Matriarchy; familial and political rule by women. Many anthropologists now reject the claims of Lewis MORGAN and others that early society was matriarchal, although some contemporary feminists have theorized that a primitive matriarchy once existed. Claims for such a matriarchy are based largely on research on societies in which women are the major contributors to subsistence, on societies with matrilineal descent, and on myths of ancient female rule. Such societies and myths have many aspects, however, that cast doubt on the validity of the claims. Most anthropologists have also concluded that patriarchy, or male dominance, is not natural or biological but culturally constructed because of the diverse forms it takes across cultures.
Per the American Heritage Dictionary paï¿½triï¿½arï¿½chy (pï¿½trï¿½-ï¿½rkï¿½) n. pl. paï¿½triï¿½arï¿½chies 1. A social system in which the father is the head of the family and descent is traced through the father's side of the family. 2. A family, community, or society based on this system or governed by men. Also Called patriarchate.
One reason matriarchies don't survive is because societies can't afford to operate them. Already, US Public Debt, which was non-existent prior to the rise of feminism, is almost more than GDP.

At the CURRENT rates of growth, Public Debt will exceed GDP by 5 fold in 34 years. BUT -- current Congressional debates will INCREASE this RATE of growth. If we can find a matriarchal society which has proven to be a workable system, then let's continue our experiment with it. But if we can't, then isn't it time to end this costly venture?
For the sake of our children, for the survival of our economy, and for the fathers whose children need them, it is time to put an end to "victim ideology", and demand that the "father" be placed back in the "family".
Consider what will happen if we don't do it now!
