The bedrock of any society [the nuclear family] has been devastated
I seriously doubt that the nuclear family is the bedrock of any society and even it was, I'd blame an increasingly difficult financial situation for the inevitable demise of the nuclear unit not the liberation of women.
Then what explains the incredible strength of the AA nuclear family up until the liberals in the 60's decided to destroy it with the imposition of their welfare state resulting in the the out of wedlock birth rate skyrocketing from 25% in the 50's to 75% now?
There is such a lot wrong with this statement it is hard to know where to start. Let's brake it down.
1) The nuclear family, treated women as chattel slaves with no ability to earn their own livings, get properly educated, or get fulfilment except as breeding stock for children. This was a sick system which ruined the lives of many women and resulted in more battered wives; and unhappy men. Additionally the prevalence of shot-gum marriages was high. Now it is pretty uncool.
2) "The liberals" who ever the fuck they are were never in a position to destroy anything. What destroyed the nuclear family was TRUTH, and the growing aspirations of women who were able to assert their rights as human beings in their demand for equality.
3) The welfare state was a response to this growing awareness and the realisation that the government is suppose to serve the people and not the other way round.
4) Your figures are bollocks and made up o the spot. The current "out of wedlock" birth rate is 40% in the USA. That would be smaller if morons like you did not make it so difficult for young people to get sex education and abortions of needed.
Historically what you like to call "out of wedlock" is the NORM.
Nobody cares about kids like their parents. And if this is not the case, your society is pretty sick [by definition].
Marriage does not guarantee good parenting.
You are sick.
