The report fits right into any discussion of the factors contributing to
the destruction of our families. The conclusion is inescapable:
Welfare to "families" results in farewell to the family.
The report provides hard evidence that a reduction in the easy availability of welfare
results without any doubt in a general strengthening of marriages, the reduction of
poverty and hunger and, most importantly, a halt to escalating numbers of illegitimate
births -- contrary to all of the dire predictions of disaster that were made by feminists
and other liberals when they attempted to prevent the Welfare Reform Bill from passing.
The report makes very strong recommendations that, in view of the positive results of the
welfare reform in the US, at least 10 percent of the funding for TANF should be used for
measures aimed directly at strengthening the family.
|Each year, over 1 million American children suffer the divorce of their parents;
moreover, half of the children born this year to parents who are married will see their
parents divorce before they turn 18. Mounting evidence in social science journals
demonstrates that the devastating physical, emotional, and financial effects that divorce
is having on these children will last well into adulthood and affect future generations.
Fiscal conservatives should realize that federal and state
governments spend $150 billion per year to subsidize and sustain single-parent families.
By contrast, only $150 million is spent to strengthen marriage.
Thus, for every $1,000 spent to deal with the effects of family
disintegration, only $1 is spent to prevent that disintegration.

This is one of the most important books I came across.
It discusses the context in which all of the problems addressed by the other works listed
in this bibliography occur. The Great Disruption will help to gain a better
understanding of the causes of the problem symptoms that appear within any of the
discussions pertaining to the decline of trust, moral values, families and civil
liberties, and of the corresponding increases in the growth of crime and other social
In The Great Disruption many of the social pathologies affecting
the developed nations are being examined by taking a look at them from the outside, so to
speak, from the global perspective. To gain a better understanding of the context in
which these pathologies occur it is absolutely necessary to look at them within the
framework laid out by Prof. Fukuyama.
The Great Disruption examines what is happening to society in
terms of history, the present and the future. The book offers hope that a degree of
social reconstruction will inevitably happen, indeed, is already emerging since the early
1990s, when the great social disruption that began in the 1960s began to come to an
end The book offers a large amount of statistics, many of which are presented in
The data tables used for the construction of the graphs displayed in The
Great Disruption as well as additional data supporting Prof. Fukuyama's
views with respect to countries not specifically addressed in the book are accessible
The book must be read by anyone concerned about and involved in the social
trends currently affecting us.
