The failure of convergence is most striking in Europe. True, a tiny sliver of European society is becoming more transnational. ...So if the family court appointed a child custody evaluator, would it matter if he were a German or a Croatian? Would the evaluator consider whether the parents were German or Croatian?
On the whole, European nations still have very different understandings of the rule of law and political order, different work ethics and conceptions of citizenship. If you look at the European Values Study, for example, you see stark values differences across the Continent. ...
More than 80 percent of the Croats believe that a parent’s duty is to do what’s best for their children, even at the expense of their own well-being. Only about 55 percent of Germans agree.
As far as I could see, the evaluators just apply their own prejudices. I had Bret K. Johnson and Ken B. Perlmutter, and they were two of the most prejudiced men I ever met. They hate fathers, Christians, and American family values. They have no professional ethics or personal morals. These are people who should never be around kids or allowed to testify in court.
