The Garbage Generation by Daniel Amneus
Today's judges are virtual accessories to child abuse when they place
children in female-headed households where they are far more likely to
be mistreated, neglected, impoverished and delinquent.

Farewell to the Family by Patricia Morgan
Government policies are undermining the family, as rising numbers of
lone-parent families, divorces, out-of-wedlock births and the increasing
popularity of cohabitation testify. Large numbers of unattached and predatory
males who have never taken on the responsibilities of family life, or who
have been ejected from families, now meet the classic conditions for the
creation of a 'warrior class'.

The Myth of Male Power by Warren Farrell
Why men are the disposable sex. Earning money that someone else spends
while you die sooner is not power. It has been overwhelmingly men who have
died for their country - and they have largely had no choice in the matter.
Men do the worst jobs; they also dominate the suicide figures. Yet the
belief that men have the power continues to keep women from understanding
men and men from understanding themselves.

Rising Crime and the Dismembered Family by Norman Dennis
How Conformist Intellectuals have campaigned against common sense.
Social affairs intellectuals are strongly inclined to subscribe to the
politically-correct doctrines of the day. The result is that universities,

berths for conformists who are fearful of being labelled 'politically incorrect'.
