'Family Values' Weaken Families

The National Journal (link here) has a nice summary article on Naomi Cahn and June Carbone's new book Red Families v. Blue Families: Legal Polarization and the Creation of Culture. I heard this on NPR today (link here), and it was an interesting interview. Factual, logical, eye opening.

"You can do a good job of predicting how a state will vote in national elections by looking at its population's average age at first marriage and childbirth."
If you want to find stable two-parent families, bypass Palin country and go to Pelosi territory."

Callers into the NPR interview kept saying "Education" was the determining variable on the successes of their marriages, control of their re-productivity, and their children's delinquency.


  1. Those who live in glass houses...of course, being a hypocrite seems to be a core Republican value.

  2. In red America, families form adults; in blue America, adults form families.

    That's an awesome quote...
