"Konservativa och vettiga liberaler har hyllat familjen som den subversiva inrättning som kan stå emot kraven på allomfattande politik och oinskränkt offentlig makt. En brist i sammanhanget har varit den outtalade definitionen av vad som är en familj – slentrianmässigt sedd som en kärnfamilj med mor, far och biologiska barn."
Many, many moons ago, in a magical faraway place apparently forgotten by time, people began criticizing the idea that the epic-faily nuclear family should enjoy a higher status than all the other many and varied ways that people choose to create strong bonds with each other, questioning why it should be promoted as a better way of life and even "protected" against these other forms of families. And then, this saturday, the editorial pages in Svd made the same discovery for apparently the first time and - in a completely unsurprising move - decided to claim it for "konservativa och vettiga liberaler" everywhere. It's scary when adults recreate the world around them in order to be "right". Wait, not scary. Stupid.
London is great and relaxing and I think the best christmas present I got was Neil Gaiman's The Graveyard Book. We've watched Lars and the Real Girl, absolutely one of the best movies I've seen this year. A whole movie about the good side of small town communities, which is that when something happens to one of their own, people can set aside most of their own prejudices in order to help that person out. What we need is a way to make that apply to strangers as well. Newspaper editors could throw themselves over that topic instead of self-congratulatory ramblings on how the Left wants to destroy The Family.
