Cutting the Baby in Half

The Hawaiian libertarian writes:
"50-50 custody by default should be the norm."

The preceding quote was made by a commenter in response to Bill Price's article at The Spearhead yesterday, in which Price made the point that the current child support system is essentially a tax to encourage single mother hood.

Price is 100% correct! The State actively promotes single mother hood as the justification to grow the vast leviathan of bureaucratic Government to achieve the total enslavement of the citizenry. That IS the primary purpose for creating the system as it currently operates. ...

Fighting for 50/50 custody default is NOT a desirable result to fight for. If this is what a Men's Rights Movement decides to fight for, good luck with that gentlemen. You are merely fighting for the right to dictate the terms of your enslavement.

What does a 50/50 default custody truly represent? A three way parenting model. The Ex-Husband, the Ex-Wife and THE STATE being the final arbiter and decision maker in child raising decisions.

In other words, we'll call it 50/50 default custody, but what it will be in practice is 25/25/50 custody. 25% for Mom, 25% for Dad, and 50% THE STATE.
The guy has a point. I have been pushing for 50-50 child custody, and parenting groups have promoted laws making 50-50 custody the default. But the truth of the matter is that true 50-50 custody has not been implemented anywhere, and it is not likely to be.

Another blogger has assembled enough posts to make a book on The Philosophy of Men Going Their Own Way. You cannot go your own way as long as the state is running your life.

Here is a man going his own way:
Dear Annie: "Looking for a Relationship, Too" wants to know where the men are. I'll tell you where we are. We are in hiding. We left the dating pool because there are too many sharks. We are tired of sorting out the gold diggers, scheming manipulators, entitlement princesses, Toxic Thelmas and serial divorcees from the good women who are fewer and farther between.

It is now a dangerous occupation to be a husband and father, so we no longer want long-term intimate relationships with women. — A Good Man Gone Celibate

Dear Celibate: You sound like someone who's had a bitter experience, and it soured you on all relationships. And while you probably speak for many men, we also wonder whether you are subconsciously attracted to women who come with trouble attached. It is often easier to blame the other party than examine your own issues too closely.
Yes, such men will be subject to such psychobabble criticism.
