The state and children

This is a great article that explains another way that the state destroys families. The state's big lie is that it can efficiently replace the family, from raising and educating children through caring for the elderly. The state, and its minions, continues to sell the myth of state omnipotence, and, sadly, the greater majority buys that myth.

The Bible says that, "A good man leaveth an inheritance to his children‘s children" (Pr 13:22a) Yet the state continues to spend our children's inheritance as it builds debt attempting to usurp the role of families; while the majority cheers.

How can we allow the theft from future generations to continue? Easy, we covet. We believe that if we - through the state - had the wealth of Bill Gates, we would solve the ills of the world. So, we covet and thieve. Yet we solve nothing, and, instead, generate more ills as we slowly destroy the family.

It has been shown for decades that The War on Poverty ended up being a war on families, with families now in full retreat. Remember, our actions may end up being the sins of the father that punish the little ones born or to be born.

What has social security got to do with fertility rates? Actually, a lot.

I read your post on Mises.org today and I enjoyed it. This is really good stuff. If you are a christian I would love to debate you on the existence of God and what his existence or non existence implies.
