David Brooks: The Nuclear Family Was a Mistake - The Atlantic
If you want to summarize the changes in family structure over the past century, the truest thing to say is this: We’ve made life freer for individuals and more unstable for families. We’ve made life better for adults but worse for children. We’ve moved from big, interconnected, and extended families, which helped protect the most vulnerable people in society from the shocks of life, to smaller, detached nuclear families (a married couple and their children), which give the most privileged people in society room to maximize their talents and expand their options. The shift from bigger and interconnected extended families to smaller and detached nuclear families ultimately led to a familial system that liberates the rich and ravages the working-class and the poor.

Italien: Rechtsradikale Gruppen wie Casa Pound wachsen - SPIEGEL ONLINE
From Spain to Turkey, the rise of the far right is a clash of cultures not civilisations
Elif Shafak
Vox and other extremists are making huge political gains for the first time in years. Their success risks tearing societies apart
What Vox is selling is strikingly similar to the package embraced by populist nationalists elsewhere: anti-immigration, anti-diversity, anti-gay marriage and LGBT rights, an aggressive longing for a mythical golden past. The Catalan conflict has played into Vox’s hands – as through history, one type of “benign” nationalism has dangerously inflamed another to stoke a vicious conflict. Populist nationalists love imaginary enemies, and Vox is no exception. Misogyny lies at its heart. Talk that men are suffering at the hands of “feminazis”, and that radical feminists are threatening the social fabric, will be familiar to watchers of the far right. They don’t believe that patriarchy exists, just as they don’t believe climate change is happening. Coming from Turkey, the misogynist rhetoric of the Spanish movement is horribly familiar to me. Just like the Justice and Development party (AKP) in Turkey, Vox wants to convert the current gender ministry into a ministry of family. The shift in words is significant. Rather than looking at gender discrimination and institutional gender disparity, the new focus is on “traditional family values”. Until recently Spain was regarded as one of the few countries that had made huge gains in gender equality. Now we know that even in such countries history can go backwards.

"Masculinity in crisis" cannot justify killing your family
“some men are unable to come to terms with different and developing notions of the institution of the family, where women increasingly play a much more dynamic role than they had in the past”. I don’t suspect Wilson of ulterior motives in saying this, nor do I feel he is making excuses for the 59 men studied by his team. All the same, I find the reporting of his conclusions shocking, particularly in the direct use of the “masculinity in crisis” phrase.

US-Familienpolitik: Ein Prsident ohne Kinder? Undenkbar! - SPIEGEL ONLINE - Nachrichten - Politik
"Amerikaner sind oft unerschrockener"
Kurz: In den USA bedeuten Kinder häufig große finanzielle Opfer, stärker noch als in Deutschland. Warum werden dort trotzdem mehr Kinder geboren?
Carsten Große Starmann, Demografie-Experte bei der Bertelsmann-Stiftung in Gütersloh, sieht den Grund vor allem in kulturellen Unterschieden. "Die Wertigkeit von Kindern und Familie, aber auch die Bewertung von Sicherheit und Risiko sind in den USA ganz anders als in Deutschland."
In Deutschland, sagt er, gebe es ein starkes Sicherheitsdenken und die Tendenz, persönliche Entscheidungen sehr behutsam abzuwägen. Eine "Kultur des Zweifels", wie der Lüneburger Soziologe Günter Burkart schreibt. Tatsächlich sorgen sich die meisten Amerikaner nicht allzu sehr um die potentiellen Hürden und Herausforderungen des Elternseins. "Ich glaube nicht, dass die meisten Frauen eine Rechnung aufmachen, ob und wann sie sich ein Kind leisten können", ...

Same-Sex Marriage and Real Family Values -
Denying same-sex couples and their families the significant savings of filing joint tax returns, Social Security survivor benefits, and about 1,130-plus other spousal benefits and protections granted other married couples is not a family-friendly policy. It is discrimination, plain and simple.

Recession’s Emerging Credo - Do More, Buy Less -
“It’s a different kind of recession,” said Richard Florida, the author of several best-selling books about the economics of cities. “It’s not like in the ’30s when people stopped going to concerts. Now people seem to be keeping up with experience consumption and cutting back on other necessities.”
