We may be stuck with the family–at least until someone invents a sustainable alternative–but the family, with its deep, impacted tensions and longings, can hardly be expected to be the moral foundation of everything else. In fact, many families could use a lot more outside interference in the form of counseling and policing, and some are so dangerously dysfunctional that they ought to be encouraged to disband right away. Even healthy families need out-side sources of moral guidance to keep the internal tensions from imploding–and this means, at the very least, a public philosophy of gender equality and concern for child welfare. Barbara Ehrenreich, Time, July 18th issue
