I was treated to the government sponsored commercial below while warming up at a restaurant after my cold lake swim this morning. Yes, the US government is giving lessons on what it means to be a father.
Back in the time, we didn't have these videos. A father would grab himself a woman, and take care of her and their offspring for life. When they were hungry, he would go out and kill a wooly mammoth or wrestle a crocodile. He would also need to offer protection from the neighboring troglodytes. The children would initially be mostly in the care of their loving mother, and only later come to admire the determination of their father and his example of tireless caring in spite of the hardship.
We have a different model today. The dad's role is to do constructive baby sitting for someone else's kid while her mom is off to the grocery store with a load of food stamps. Protection is provided by lawyers who get judges to issue cease and desist orders against roving corporate preditors. My how times have changed.
