Utopia Against the Family  Oct 9, 2006
Disputes over the family now rage with strange intensity. Some Americans recognize the family as divinely ordained, a blessed refuge of love and security in a world darkened by the effects of the Fall. But others regard the traditional family as an anachronism, an obstacle to the fufillment of political ambitions. Utopia Against the Family clarifies the cultural and spiritual significance of current debates over family questions. Bryce Christensen identifies the underlying causes of our national retreat from family life, while exposing the mendacity of much "pro-family" rhetoric. Those who care about family life will find this a sobering and provacative analysis.

Drawing upon utopian literature from Plato to B. F. Skinner, the analysis examines why the modern state expands at the expense of the family. Utopian politics has weakened the family by fostering an individualistic optimism, even a false sense of immortality. Yet because of the favorable connotations of family vocabulary, contemporary utopians have tried to redefine its key terms for political purposes. The hidden cause of "the birth dearth" and the unacknowledged meaning of the misnamed "gender gap" are also brought to light, as well as the current controversy concerning the "daycare" industry and the suppression of the latest studies highly critical of this modern day institution.
