Where did our family form come from and how is it doing now? This episode of Capitalism Hits Home looks at what is happening in America's families. As Americans, we present ourselves as a family centered nation. However, our families are certainly not the center of our economic, political, or legal support systems. In fact, they are in deep trouble.Supports are needed and possible.

CHH is a @Democracy At Work production. The show addresses the intersection of capitalism, class, and personal lives, and explores what is happening in the economic realm and its impact on our individual and social psychology.

    We have more protective laws and state involvement since 1967 but we have an increase in more family casualties from children to parents since, we have an increase in state court industry, we have an increase in poor mortality rate. In rural areas of Europe and Scandinavia and Cuba etc. what you still have is a father who still maintains adequate authority and responsibility (love) for his family and a traditional family mentality (love) in all members, and not since feudalism but the roman era, dawn of civilization and probably the stone age. Why are all the statistics mentioned getting worse in the last 50 years of progressive state involvement and progressive law? Keep peeling the onion, there is one ugly truth left to realize and publicize.
    “Where there is no vision, the people perish. —Proverbs 29:18” (just another outdated meaningless proverb)
