WHO LOSES? Well the obvious answer is the parasites, the range of professionals, legal, social worker, psychiatrists, psychologists etc who understandably with the base human condition respond to the TOXIC INCENTIVE to fuel acrimony in family systems. ‌.whether passively (a subtle agenda in itself) Click to CONTINUE

BUT! There is hope even for the Toxic Losers! In a scene from Zhivago, the revolution has taken over and the soldiers are returning from the front.

Change but HOW? When Paradigms change everybody goes back to Zero. In times of change the learners inherit the world while the experts are perfectly equipped but for world that no longer exists.

Families, Change and Social Policy in Europe

Let’s build a taxation/welfare regime which imaginatively supports share parenting as a paradigm shift towards positivity, in contrast the present model, whereby a couple are financially better off, by technically separating, so that the mother can be classified as a Lone Parent and get housing and financial benefits, the father can pay cash under the table and both can then reside together illegally but with the guaranteed turning of the blind eye by a corrupt and vacant social welfare system.

Families, Change and Social Policy in Europe

My EURO-VISION ! • Fathers and Mothers share equally the parenting of their children from pre-conception through their formative years, with the support of their communities, • The cultural values actively protect the child’s right to the love and society of both their fathers and mothers, • The courts, statutory and educational services proactively respect parenting, treating and supporting both parents equally Click to CONTINUE

www.liamog.com ©2004


Families, Change and Social Policy in Europe

My EuroVision ! • Socio-economic planning is based on the core value of both parents spending substantive time with their children • Women and men struggle together in partnership rather than against each other (in a gender war) to manage the increasing and complex demands of balancing childcare and career.
