Individualism and socialism versus the family
my main website. The title is “Socialism versus the Family,” and I presented it at the Heritage Foundation back in February of 2019. The talk begins by explaining the economics and ethos of socialism, and how socialism is related to liberalism. It then explains the nature of the family, emphasizing the features recognized by natural law theorists and evolutionary psychology alike. Finally it shows how egalitarian socialism is inherently incompatible with the family, but also how the liberal individualism embraced by too many modern conservatives is precisely what paved the way for the egalitarian assault on the family.
