The last statement of retired Army Sergeant Tom Bell, one of the 18 veterans a day who commit suicide, provides a realistic picture and well documents the horror of men caught up in the divorce, domestic violence, and child "protection" industries today.
Sergeant Bell points out that roughly 36 million Americans, mostly men, have been arrested for "domestic violence" since 1984. And "domestic violence" is now the most common crime in Colorado, although criminal violence only rarely occurs. As a result of these insane laws and practices, Sergeant Bell estimates some 72 million men, women, and children have ended up homeless at some point in their lives over the last 25 years. While one might debate, as he does, the absolute accuracy of his estimates, his research is unchallengeable and there are no better data available. And with such numbers it is of little surprise to find our economy on the ropes with little prospect of recovery despite all the Washington propaganda.
In large measure this social engineering has wiped out America's middle class and Sergeant Bell does an admirable job of reviewing how these laws came into being at the instigation of man-hating neo-Marxist radical feminists.
While Sergeant Bell's ten-year battle with the "justice" system ended in his self immolation at the door of the Keene County, New Hampshire, courthouse, it is to be hoped that his testament will bring some measure of relief to millions of others. But, as he notes, this country is currently run by idiots. So let us not imagine any turnaround by Fathers Day 2012 by which time another 1.5 million men will have been added to this tale of insanity.
Isn't it time to end the war on men if our nation is to survive? As Erin Pizzey, who pioneered the shelter for battered women movement in 1971, famously stated many decades ago: "Any country that has tried to create a political solution to human problems has ended up with concentration camps and gulags." Is there any question that America, with the highest percentage of our population of any country on earth already in prison, now satisfies Ms. Pizzey's prediction?
