Father vs. Dad (part 1)

I am convinced that improper fatherhood is the largest social problem in the United States. I believe it is the root of the vast majority of other problems that we face.

Dad Switch

If this universal switch existed, the world would change immediately. Many problems would be drastically reduced and some would be all but non-existent:

  • Abortion
  • Violent crime
  • Welfare-dependent families
  • Domestic violence
  • Hunger
  • Drug and alcohol abuse
  • Suicide
  • Teen pregnancy
  • Dropping out of school

This list is obvious. If sperm-donors were replaced by productive leaders of families, if deadbeats provided for those for whom they are biologically responsible, if a temporary sexual relationship was never the commencement of a human life…the world would be different.

But it’s easy to point a finger at obvious evil…
