Slavery Never Ended in America: It Still Exists in Family Courts
American politicians love to self-righteously pat themselves on the back, play the race card, and genuflect before audiences about the horrors of slavery. Oh, what backwards times those were. Surely, lessons have been learned after slavery died as the de facto labor system worldwide, and we will never again subject another human being to work under threat of imprisonment or other indignities.
As is the case with almost anything politicians say, the harsh truth shows just the opposite. Indeed, slavery was legally abolished in 1865, but it has been resurrected in the family court system. Men are being forced, by the vicious teeth of the Anglo legal system to make wealth transfer payments to women despite the fact that in the 21st century every female claims to be a Strong, Independent Woman™ who Don’t Need a Man™.
Evidence shows quite the opposite of these bold feminist claims. Women do need a man. At least, a man slave. And they especially need his child support and/or alimony check to clear every month. Meantime, the male prey item (referencing the apt term found in the classic book The Predatory Female) is reduced from father to sperm donor by the legal system if a relationshit or marriage doesn’t work out.
This predatory system has become big business in the world’s preeminent sellout culture. A National Fatherhood Initiative report exposes the big business child support has become in the U.S.:
From 2001-2012, the federal Office of Child Support Enforcement reports a whopping increase of 50 percent in child support collections from $21 billion to $31.6 billion.
That’s 50% growth over the course of a decade of the child support gravy train – outstripping the growth of most businesses. As we will see, men are being literally turned into financial slaves of ex-wives or ex-girlfriends. Worse, women initiate or cause 4 out of 5 divorces, so they hold the cards when it comes to male liberty and slavery.
Feminists and the misandrist Anglo legal system have succeeded in usurping male rights by implanting this toxic mentality into the minds of several generations of women in the Anglosphere: What woman needs the inconvenience a man represents (with his needs for food, love, and sex) when the fruits of his labor can be forcibly extracted and delivered by Big Daddy Government?
What is Slavery?
Let’s look at some definitions of slavery to see if forced child support and alimony payments fit the definition.
How much are men forced to pay into the system? Child support alone averages $500 a month per child, and alimony for a man who makes $5,000 a month would be an additional $1,600 a month payment in most states. These are payments that must be made whether or not the newly minted slave of the government gynocracy can afford them, whether or not he has a job, and with no regards to his personal health or well-being.
American men are being forced to make a wealth transfers to women under threat of imprisonment and/or having both professional and driver’s licenses revoked, with no accountability on the part of the mother to show that the funds are being spent exclusively for the benefit of the child, or if she even needs the alimony in this age of career girls. It would appear this scheme fits the textbook definition of slavery well:
- The state or condition of being a slave; a civil relationship whereby one person has absolute power over another and controls his life, liberty, and fortune
- the subjection of a person to another person, esp. in being forced into work
- work done in harsh conditions for low pay
The current child support and alimony system in the U.S. fits textbook slavery definitions #1 and #2 very well. When men lose driver’s and professional licenses after falling behind on court mandated wealth transfers to women, slavery definition #3 comes into play.
In fact, a recent expose by a prison guard turned expat on Rookh Kshatriya’s excellent blog illustrates how men who contribute to society are being betrayed by both women and their government. He tells the story of a surgeon whose life was destroyed by a predatory Anglobitch, a man who went from saving lives to doing work in harsh conditions for low pay:
The very worst case I saw as a prison guard was a surgeon, yes an American surgeon who was one of the most respectable guys I ever met, hard working, worked until 2 a.m. 6 days a week to save people’s lives. With all the work hours, his wife got “lonely” and started sleeping around, eventually having 2 kids that weren’t even his as he found out later. And then she filed for divorce so she could take the surgeon’s money, blow it on cocaine and stupid luxuries for herself without doing any work herself (that’s the real destination where the “child support” money goes) and sleep around with her favorite Chad of the week, all on her hard working surgeon ex-husband’s money. She won an insanely high judgment in a US family court, millions of dollars in child support and “alimony” that the poor surgeon would have to pay. Since by the court’s judgment, “she should be entitled to maintain the same standard of living after the divorce”, even though this greedy gold-digging Anglobitch is the one who filed for the divorce to steal from her hard-working husband who was actually saving people’s lives.
After a few years of doing this, and losing his house and his nice car, the poor surgeon threw out his back while helping a patient onto an operating table. He had to cut down his hours as a surgeon, and went to the divorce court asking for a reduction in the support demands, and ask that his lazy, spoiled brat bitch ex-wife get a damn job herself. But the court refused using the same delusion filled imputation bullshit they pull on other ex-husbands, claiming he could somehow make millions of extra dollars using his surgical wizard skills somehow. Which he couldn’t do in reality with his injured back, something the family court judge couldn’t or wouldn’t even try to understand. So then now the alimony and child support were demanding 120% of his income. You see, the family court system will never let you off the treadmill once they target you, especially if you earn a lot of money. Eventually he drained his savings and retirement, couldn’t make the payments at all—and he wound up in the prison where I was a corrections officer.
The corrupt American family court-media-feminist-academia cultural Marxist-big business-prison industrial complex had worked perfectly to ruin this poor man, and what a prize they had. A dedicated, hard working US surgeon, saving lives every day, drained of his money and reduced to poverty by a gold-digging, spoiled greedy bimbo who divorced him due to his very dedication, had kids with other men to force him to pay bullshit “child support” in addition to never-stopping alimony, his assets taken by his gold-digging ex wife and the state to grease their own corruption, the “child support” in actuality supporting the ex wife’s corrupt, hedonistic lifestyle after divorce. And then the poor surgeon himself made a literal slave in a US prison, stripped of his license and made a perpetual debtor, worked to the bone but never allowed to profit from his own efforts or hard work. That really is how it works in the US family court and prison system. That poor surgeon was the worst case we ever saw, made us so mad we were talking about how we were going to “free the Bastille” and start a revolution ourselves to stop all the corruption, Robespierre style. And free all the innocent men, and even some women, who were imprisoned this way, to feed more slaves to the machine.
As this case shows, women have absolute power over men in the court system. A man’s life, liberty and finances are subject to forfeiture by an oppressive, legalistic system simply because he had a failed relationship with an Anglobitch.
Let’s look at another definition of slavery.
Slavery is a legal or economic system in which principles of property law are applied to humans allowing them to be classified as property, to be owned, bought and sold accordingly, and they cannot withdraw unilaterally from the arrangement. While a person is enslaved, the owner is entitled to the productivity of the slave’s labor, without any remuneration.
Being forced to pay a woman in order to stay out of jail means men have become property owned by the state, as men are bought by the court system and sold by women into their bondage – and of course men cannot withdraw from the arrangement. A man’s owner, the state, entitles itself as well as his ex to the productivity of the newly minted slave’s labor for 18 years or even for a lifetime in the case of alimony, forcing payments to be made to a totally unaccountable “mother” or ex.
Legal Abortion: Men’s Right to “Choose”
How do we remedy this situation in the interest of men’s rights? A start would be giving men the right to a legal abortion.
One of the conditions of slavery is the fact a party to the “agreement” cannot withdraw unilaterally from the arrangement. It’s is an interesting condition to elaborate on. Men in the United States have no legal rights to withdraw from being fathers after conception, even though women can physically abort their child anytime they choose. This means women have all the power over men and their children’s lives, and men have none. In effect, all a woman has to do is find an idiot who makes a good salary to impregnate her, then she gets a guaranteed income for 18 years. (If he marries her, potentially an income for life!)
At the very least, to give men the rights granted to slaves in 1865 – to unilaterally withdraw from the arrangement – American lawmakers need to follow the model recently proposed by the Swedish, reported by the Daily Mail. Interestingly, the idea of “legal abortions” came from European liberals:
Expectant fathers in Sweden should have the right to ‘legally abort’ their unborn child up until the 18th week of pregnancy, the youth wing of the country’s Liberal Party has proposed. Swedish Liberal Youth argues that men should be given an equal say in whether or not they wish to become a parent, and be granted the option to cut any lawful responsibilities. The suggested ‘legal abortion’ would be irreversible and would see the man renounce all parental duties and rights to see the child once it has been born.
Men are currently given no say in whether or not they wish to become a parent after the sex act. Once again we see bias against men in society, while women play the victim card to their benefit.
To illustrate one of the many hypocrisies of Anglo culture, let’s examine a term of scorn heaped upon men who can’t make the expected wealth transfers. The phrase Deadbeat Dads is a popular one on the left and in the media. But we never hear the term Deadbeat Moms, even though women have a higher percentage of child support defaults (i.e. falling behind or not paying) than men. Deadbeat moms occur at 1.2 times the rate of deadbeat dads in Anglo America:
- 32% of custodial fathers did not receive child support payments from “mom”
- 25% of custodial mothers did not receive child support payments from “dad”
Delving into the numbers, child support statistics get even more interesting. Mothers default more often even though they are not forced to pay as much as fathers by the court system.
- The average due to custodial mothers is $4,800 annually
- The average due to custodial fathers is $4,100 annually
So, even though women do not have to pay as much child support as men do, they become deadbeats more often. The media never discuss this, nor do lawmakers. Also, thanks to a gynocentric court system that displays the opposite of “equality” leftists and feminists claim to hold so dear:
- 84% of the time women get custody
- 16% of the time men get custody
If equality was truly a desired outcome, rather than women continuing to enjoy all legal rights and privileges men would get custody 50% of the time, or both parties would co-parent (as is done in Iceland) and neither would be forced by the legal system to make payments to the other.
A Rising Tide of Men Speaking Out
There is good news. Men are now throwing off the culturally-imposed prohibitions on speaking out against a system that abuses them.
Male utility is often cited as the only use women have for men in the modern age. In the long darkness before humanity became civilized, men were not given roles in society. After giving men roles in society, civilization flourished. By banishing fathers from the matriarchal kingdom, we have regressed, not progressed as a society.
As alluded to earlier, there has been some kickback to this model of female privilege and superiority, however. Daniela Carrigo posted this comment on the National Fatherhood Initiave’s page:
As a woman it infuriates me that dads’ sites always start with ‘respect the child’s mom’ and mom’s sites never mention dad. Dad sites say ‘pay child support’ or ‘be fiscally responsible for your child’ and mom sites, not so much – like – never.
You want to protect marriage? Make giving dads custody and making moms pay child support the NORM. All studies show moms start divorce proceedings or, in the majority of births today, never marry dad – why, alimony is on its way out but child support is tax free and GUARANTEED.
Cut off the free cow and women (as one I know) will stop raising kids dad free with free money. Get a damn job and stop expecting money from the man you keep the child from! You should be able to earn enough to not need child support OR you don’t DESERVE THE CHILD!!!!
Indeed, there is rarely if ever any question of accountability on the part of the mother. Men are blamed from the moment the sex act occurs, while women are not blamed for spreading their legs. Women receive government benefits for children they can’t afford, while men are sent to prison for children they can’t afford.
Men at Yahoo! Answers also give us a taste of the dirty underbelly of the Anglo American family court system:
Think about it, the man has his monthly income taken away from him. Not to mention he can go to jail for not paying this fine. This utterly DESTROYS any motivation the man may have to work harder/improve his performance or start a business for example, what’s the point if his hard-earned money is just stolen from him?
Meanwhile, the woman is free to mess around w/ other guys w/ the money she receives for free from her former victim. The financial needs of the child are almost always a small fraction of what she receives, and so she is free to spend the extra money on purses/shoes/jewelry, etc.
The saddest part is, the man is denied of seeing his child either by the woman or the Gov’t, despite any attempts he may try to make contact. Even worse is when the woman trains the kid to hate his dad by calling him a “deadbeat” or a “loser”, when in fact this is usually further from the truth (MOST fathers will not abandon their kid).
Child support is nothing but slavery. The fact that a few careless/manipulative women can exploit the system to deny honest men contact with their children WHILE stealing 50-60% of their hard-earned income is just wrong.
The Yahoo! discussion continues with this response:
I totally agree with you. That’s why more men are foregoing the marriage and staying single. I can tell you that if my wife and I divorced I would never get remarried. Divorces are slanted against men. Women are so vindictive when it comes to revenge that they can’t see how their actions are hurting men and their own kids. If the courts were a lot more fair and the lawyers a lot less greedy then men would not be so afraid of the marriage contract or the results of some woman with dollar bills in her eyes.
It’s true. Men are waking up to the fact that any dealing with an Anglo American women puts their entire lives in jeopardy. (A fact made even truer by the recent spate of #MeToo sexual witch trials in this Neo-Puritan, anti-male, anti-sex, anti-procreation, feminist culture.)
Rather than this unfortunate circumstance happening by accident, the outcome of enslaving men with their own children has long been the aim of the social engineers who have this nefarious goal: make sex and reproduction so risky for men they will not reproduce, which will lead to population control.
At least, that’s the idea in theory. In reality, it means that good, hardworking, law-abiding men are not reproducing because of the hell the legal system has created, but thugs and bad boys are reproducing because they are often in trouble with the law anyway and don’t give a damn. Statistics bear this out: Criminals have an average of 3.0 children per lifetime, while the average for the rest of the population is 1.75 children per lifetime.
The penalty for slaves who don’t pay once they are indentured by a state that meddles in family matters is discussed below, from the same Yahoo! Answers board.
If you come up short on child support you immediately get a warrant issued. The best solution I’ve seen for a more equitable solution for child support would be for the custodial parent to provide receipts to CSA and checks issued as valid reimbursements (just like a FSA account), any money not used out of that month gets returned. This will separate the good responsible parents from the not so responsible parents, unaccountable money leads to fraud and theft.
The stories of this waste of child support money are numerous among men I know. In one case, a friend of mine is forced to make $1,500 in child support payments each month. However, his kids go around in raggedy clothing while mommy dearest drives a Cadillac Escalade and always looks like she just walked out of the mall. And he’s powerless to do anything about it.
Finally, the breakup of family and subjugation of men also means the corporate-government complex will have more control over the minds of the next generation of children than ever before.
Slavery Still Exists
As these facts show, slavery literally still exists for men of all colors in the United States of America. If women are truly seize the mantle of the empowerment they purport to desire so badly, they must not be given a legal crutch with which they can support their past bad choices, including choosing fathers they could not reasonably have expected to stay with until the children they create are raised.
We have discussed definitions of slavery. Here is a term women need to learn, as it comes with the territory of an empowered individual:
Accountability is an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions.
To be Empowered™, women must also become accountable. Big Daddy Government and his welfare state, i.e. Uncle Sugar is an enabler of bad choices for women, and his enabling of reckless and predatory female behavior must be stopped. Men are already being held legally accountable for their actions, however men do not get the same privileges women do. There are four ways to rectify this injustice:
- Men need to have reproductive rights which are on par with those of women. My body, my choice needs to have the legal equivalent of Me Being Enslaved, My choice. Men must be given the right to a legal abortion if women are given the rights to a physical abortion. This will force women to be prudent about reproductive decisions.
- Gynocentrism in the courts must be eliminated. Men must be legally recognized as more than sperm donors and check-writers, and fathers must be given custody o children half the time; or, Anglo law should adopt a model in which custody is shared and no forced payments are created by the court system.
- The no fault divorce system must be abandoned and Anglo law must return to a model in which fault must be proven to get a divorce.
- Even better, the government needs to stay out of familial matters between two adults as much as possible and let them sort out the matters for themselves.
But we all know women don’t really want to be empowered. They want their cake and ice cream, rights AND privileges, and to eat them both. However, this system will utterly destroy the social fabric in the Anglosphere.
The current legal system makes men totally disposable rather than stakeholders in the family and society. Many of us feel this is by design of social engineers and Marxists rather than a result of any real concern about women’s rights. The true goal of such a system is to reduce mothers and fathers to squabbling factions who wage war on each other in the court system, allowing lawyers, judges, and those allied with this unjust system to make a living off the backs of the common man.
Leaving the family in the hands of a corrupt government is destroying it. As George Orwell put it: The real division is not between conservatives and revolutionaries but between authoritarians and libertarians. Authoritarians have created Big Daddy Government, an authoritarian monstrosity that has removed real fathers from society and enslaved them. Libertarians are trying, unfruitfully, to get the government out of our families.
Until then, the best options for men who know they’ve been betrayed by both their women and their government are to go MGTOW, Go Galt, or become an expat and leave the hateful Anglosphere altogether.
