In the West, which is well on its way to becoming a Brave New World, a major victory over the traditional family was achieved in the Californian courts in 1985. The court ruling created the financial incentive for the poorer party of a marriage covenant (usually the wife) to break the marriage oath.

Sociologist Lenore Weitzman claimed that after divorce, women were reduced to poverty while men lived the high-life and from her figures, the family court system was overhauled to the point that today, many young men fear the marriage covenant which is at the heart of most civilisations.

The only problem is that now, Weitzman admits that her figures were flawed, yet they are still used by politicians and the media.

Black fathers bore the brunt of the deadbeat dad slur and now the illegitimate sons of their ex-wives sons, are avoiding marriage altogether.
Post-Divorce Wealth Gap Was Wrong, Agrees Author

By Katharine Webster

THERE'S ONLY one problem with sociologist Lenore Weitzman's 1985 report on the huge post-divorce standard-of-living gap between men and women: It's wrong. Weitzman now acknowledges the error and says she's responsible.

BOSTON - It was a jaw-dropping statistic, widely influential in the movement to change America's divorce and child-support laws.

Eleven years ago, sociologist Lenore Weitzman published "The Divorce Revolution," her groundbreaking study of California's no-fault divorce system. In it, she reported that women's households suffered a 73 percent drop in their standard of living in the first year after divorce, while men's households enjoyed a 42 percent rise.

Since then, the figures have been quoted hundreds of times in newspapers, politicians' speeches and court rulings.

There's only one problem: Her figures are wrong.

Weitzman is a typical name.
Weizen is wheat in German.

In fact this is a subject that belongs to "emancipation" and "feminism"
and we all know who invented it.

Lenore WEITZMAN on ziopedia en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?search=Lenore+Weitzman&title=Special%3ASearch&go=Go
says it all
"The truth must be repeated over and over again,
because error is repeatedly preached among us, not
only by individuals, but by the masses. In periodicals
and cyclopaedias, in schools and universities; every-
where, in fact, error prevails, and is quite easy in the
feeling that it has a decided majority on its side."

~ J. W. v. Goethe

Which brings us to the old question: Cock-up or conspiracy?

Certainly no judge, politician or media pin-up is calling for the case law to be reviewed.

That doesn't surprise me in the least. Destruction is the name of the game but this time Brucie isn't hosting it! :hide:
