The Return of Patriarchy

And the Duggars shall inheirit the earth? Jim Bob Duggar with one of his many sons at the wedding of an older son.

I have tried to write an article like this before, but not as well as Phillip Longman at the New America Foundation does it. He gives interesting statistics and powerful historical examples to make his case. And in this instance, the historical effects will be magnified. Never before have those who wanted children had so many ways to get them. Never before have those who did not want them had so many ways to avoid having them. Now it may be offensive in some of the points it makes to those who have a dislike of patriarchy, but it really is profoundly written. So go read it already!
