Pro(re)gressives never want to address the real cause of social problems in the US, they prefer delusional ideology. One obvious and growing issue is the number of children, who then become adults, who never had a consistent father or male involved with them as they grew up. Over 18 million children currently live without a father in the home. This is particularly devastating for black children, of whom over 50% live with only a mother in the home. And often even when fathers are in the house they spend too little time with their children. Children from single-parent homes are twice as likely to have mental health and behavioral issues. They are less likely to do well in school. They are more likely to commit crimes, including far more likely to be school shooters. Study after study demonstrates the widely divergent outcomes among children with and without a father and still it gets ignored. There should be a national campaign to make fathers be responsible and involved or pay the cost to society of their lack of involvement. (AFPI Brief)
