It’s Father’s Day – Got to Hold that Sky

What is the old quote from Mao that has been misconstrued by a good deal of ‘Progressives’ over the years? “Women hold up half the sky.”  I am reminded of this after seeing articles about the ‘humorous’ t-shirt from an American store called ‘Old Navy’ (picture included with this article).  As the picture implies, there is an attitude with a good deal of progressives in the western world that the ‘Nuclear Family’ (i.e. one father, one mother to raise a child) is a standard that must be torn down to usher a new utopian Marxist society.


However, when it comes to Chinese Society, and the powers to be in Beijing, there is a sense of disgust when witnessing the multigenerational results of such attitude in Europe, North America, and elsewhere in the world.  For if only women are holding up the sky, and the men are allowed to so what they please, then the ‘skies are falling’ for the children raised in such chaos.  What were once prosperous societies are nothing more than shells of themselves, utterly dependent on a dwindling group of responsible adults to maintain a level of comfort that would be considered no more than ghettos by Chinese standards.


So to all fathers that are reading these words, stand tall during this day and in all days that your children live, from their birth to your death.  Raise your children to understand the responsibly that come with being a parent, so that they can raise their children with confidence as well.  Do not be deterred by fools, especially fools with no children of their own, that claim that men are not needed to raise children.  Many societies over the years have tried to do so, and they have all crumbled as the sky collapsed over them.  So, as you look into the eyes of your child or children, make sure they see a man who is willing to hold back the very heavens itself to make sure they have at least of modicum of a good life.
