Why Child Support Won’t Change.
A political agenda to which child support is such a critical element will ruthlessly enforce compliance until it is overwhelmed by death.
The issue that is central to feminist control in respect of the child, is the manner of its upbringing. Parenting in this context is not something that Mothers and Fathers do, but is a legally enforceable, state managed regime. In order to maintain control of parenting the state uses the family court to control, firstly – possession of the child, and secondly – financing of the child’s upbringing.
In terms of possession it is the last resort of the court to place the child with the biological father, and until the recent protestations of fathers even to allow contact.
The second issue, that of funding is critical to maintaining this agenda. Here’s the child, here’s the money, now go to school during the day and go home to your caregiver at night.
The collection of child support is justified only by the existence of the child. Any other considerations are removed to the arena of parenting issues, which must be resolved in an adversarial court under the watchful eye of “The Family Law Section”, who have turned the robes of justice into a monkey suit, by pretending to be a court, rather than acknowledging their role as a state institution.
For the purposes of collecting child support it is more convenient to blame fathers for their absence rather than encouraging participation – that was simply never in the agenda.
It is not the brave new world of women, simply retrodictive ignorance, and a sad indictment of our society that as mothers and fathers, we allow our children to be used as the political fodder of egalitarian tyrants.
