ZMan talks about the present disruption that afflicts young men and women and how it has led to all the aberrant behavior we see today. His conclusion is that the society we’ve allowed to evolve no longer functions to bring men and women together to form normal functioning families. Well, that seems accurate. But it doesn’t go into what needs to be done. I think it goes without saying that leaving things the way they are will only make the problem worse. What needs to happen is for the society at large to incentivize young people to get married and raise families. Lobby for government policies that make families affordable; school vouchers, tax deductions for dependents and a subsidy for married stay at home moms, tax benefits for companies that provide family benefits to their employees. And on the individual front it’s necessary for all of us to start recreating traditional social organizations to provide a place for young people to meet. If the churches and the old line fraternal organizations have been converged and destroyed it’s necessary to form new ones. With the Supreme Court finally out of liberal hands perhaps it’s possible that the right of free association may resurface and we can again organize our personal lives to exclude the mentally ill and the disruptively abnormal. I think we’re in a bad place but I think it will improve when we have more control over the anti-traditional forces that are continuously attacking the normal roles of men and women in a functional society. Anyway, that’s my thought.
