I recently signed a contract with a current affairs publisher for a book
tentatively [whose title is] Taken Into Custody: The War Against Fathers,
Marriage, and the Family. This will be a major exposé on all facets of
the divorce/custody machine -- including child custody, constitutional
rights, child support, domestic violence, child abuse, feminism, government
fatherhood/marriage programs, and more. It will document the politics behind
the machinery -- the conflicts of interest, the corruption, the money, the
extremist ideology -- and demonstrate why this is more than simple "gender
bias" against fathers.
Taken Into Custody will be the most comprehensive and forthright exposé
yet published by a major publishing house of the depredations of the divorce
industry. I say this conscious that I am standing on the shoulders of
others: Sanford Braver's Divorced Dads: Shattering the Myths, Warren
Farrell's Father and Child Reunion (among his other books), Jeffery
Leving's Fathers Rights, Jed Abraham's From Courtship to Courtroom,
Robert Seidenberg's The Fathers Emergency Guide to Divorce-Custody Battle,
Richard Doyle's Save the Males, Judy Parejko's Stolen Vows,
Without these pioneering efforts, I would never have been able to write
this book. Yet these writers were either pressured by their publishers to
tone down their language or forced to self-publish. This is the first book
from a major publisher that has been permitted to speak the unvarnished
truth about the divorce machinery: its destruction of families, its
violations of the Constitution, its disregard for due process of law, its
voracious appetite for children, parents, and families. This is no tirade
however but a thoroughly documented study of the most repressive government
machine ever created in the United States.
For examples of the kind of forthright account you can expect in this
book, look at the published articles at

How come this 550 page book only costs four bucks? Because it's a
pre-publication edition - an experiment. The price will shoot up to $24 as soon as the
hardcover edition comes out.
This book equates feminism and woman suffrage with both
socialism and atheism. According
to the author, feminism and the enfranchisement of women will destroy the family. The book
also suggests that pregnant women who vote run the risk of bearing "physically
imperfect or idiotic" children.
There isn't really much wrong with what the book states. Feminism, suffragism and
socialism are all almost interchangeable, and, in view of the efforts by the feminists to
make over traditional religions in "her" image, the observation about atheism
isn't that far off. Moreover, given the
Marxist roots of feminism, the fact that
many feminists are openly-confessed Marxists and that, for example,
Betty Friedan was at least well into her thirties an
active functionary of the communist left, a professional Marxist-Stalinist
and a journalist for the communist-controlled Journal of the American Electrical Workers
union, it shouldn't surprise anyone that much, if not most, of feminists ideology is
nothing but communism disguised under a new name and with a special twist added: the
vilification of men and of the majority of heterosexual women.
As to the second part of the note, that aspect of the book isn't too far off
either. Let's concentrate on the outcome instead of on the process. The
feminist-promoted sexual promiscuity and destruction of marital fidelity most certainly
has left its mark on many children. To mention a few concerns:

monogamous unions are not the biological offspring of the alleged

A very large number of children are Crack-addicted at birth.
Untold numbers of children are being born already afflicted with AIDS or being HIV
If anyone has fears that our children are becoming idiotic, it is little consolation
that the feminist-dominated and controlled
system most certainly makes increasing numbers of children look and perform like
The greatest danger to civilization is not
overpopulation; that is due to the increasing life expectancies and is already tapering
off. No, the greatest dangers facing civilization are the rapidly growing
demographic sector of the elderly, the declining birth rates that cause countries like
Japan, Germany and Italy to experience
losses in the order of 30 percent with every successive generation, and the escalating
unwillingness of people to have children or to raise children in whole, permanent
families. However, all developed countries now have birth rates that are below
replacement levels. (See also:
