Angry Harry Agrees with Bob
After years of being one of the voices for “shared parenting” and other nonsense, Angry Harry has come around to realize that old dog Men's Rights Advocates like Bob and others have been right all along. Joint custody and "equal parenting" will not save our families. The only way to save families is to return to "Father Knows Best." Any of the so-called "equal rights" in families have and will always be destructive to families and children.
Angry Harry now agrees with Bob and old Men's Rights activists. Fathers must rule Families. Rule by fathers is the social system that has worked for all of human history before feminism, and still is the only social system that provides the most good for the most families.
We Men need to do as Harry and Bob now suggests, work toward the goal of restoring Father's rule of our families. Here is what Angry Harry has to say about fathers and families:
From ANGRY HARRY 4-21-08
For years and years I had racked my brains in an attempt to figure out what could be done in order to promote the greatest sense of well-being for both men and women when it comes to their relationships - probably the most important aspect of their lives - an aspect which, quite clearly, spills out to affect hugely the rest of society.
I kept going round in circles - up convoluted pathways that either seemed to lead nowhere, or along pathways that were likely to make matters even worse.
And I had argued till I was blue in the face with some of the old-time MRAs - and I do mean old! - over what so many of them were constantly advocating - something which I simply could not bring myself to accept - but, some time ago, I became convinced that they were probably right all along, and that all my various alternative schemes were fairly hopeless.
(Nothing new there!)
Quite simply, all my convoluted notions ended up failing miserably somewhere along the line; whereas their solution was very simple and, if you followed the various pathways that stemmed from it, it seemed mostly to lead to an enormous amount of good.
It is this.
Fathers are in charge. Full stop.
And if the marriage breaks down, the woman leaves.
And she leaves everything.
The fathers are responsible for any children. They are responsible for their welfare and for their behavior.
And unless the circumstances are dire - nobody has the right to interfere with what they decide.
And that's it. Problem solved.
It all sounds really draconian and unfair, doesn't it?
But if you think deeply about the strengths, the weaknesses, the natures and the predilections of men and women, and of how they tend to relate to each other, to their families and to the world outside, this draconian solution does seem to pan out rather well. And it seems likely to generate the minimum of problems both for individuals and for society as a whole.
Well, is it likely that western societies will actually adopt such a solution in the near future?
Nope: Not a hope in Hell, would be my guess.
But, in my view, MRAs should keep this solution in mind, and continually try to head the world in this direction.
The arguments that support such a solution could gradually win the day but they will not win the day right now; because the western world has been indoctrinated with the view that women are entitled to do whatever they want to do.
But, bit by bit, my guess is that even most women will begin to see that there are many advantages for them and for society if men are put firmly in charge of their families.
And so, in the future, for example, should any woman start complaining about the fact that her husband is 'abusive' in some way then other women might turn round and say, "Then leave him," or "You should have got to know him properly before you got married."
Indeed, I already get the sense that many women are already fed up with having to fund through the tax system those thousands of feckless women who seem to bear offspring at the drop of a hat. And they also seem to be fairly angry about the fact that many of the fathers of these children are nowhere to be seen.
Putting the fathers in charge and making them responsible would seem to address such problems - as well as many others.
