[313] Sociology of Disorder

Mary Eberstadt recently wrote a scintillating article in December’s Firstthings.com, entitled “The Fury of the Fatherless.” Eberstadt took a hard, empirical look at who exactly are the summer 2020 protestors that fomented mass disorder in US cities. Her research findings were startling, uncovering three characteristics.

First, the protestors are overwhelmingly fatherless.  “Six decades of social science have established that the most efficient way to increase dysfunction is to increase fatherlessness,” writes Eberstadt. And fatherlessness is increasing. Twenty-five percent of US children now grow up without a father in the home, 65% of African-American children. Moreover, the vast majority of imprisoned juveniles are from fatherless homes.

Murder in cities is a gang problem, with the gang problem being a fatherless problem. The Minnesota Psychological Association stated that gang leaders fill a father role for aimless youth. The BLM movement has waged an attack on fathers, stating that they want to “disrupt the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement…”  In short, identity politics are characterized by an absence of fathers.

Moving closer to the 2020 disorders, the authors of White Fragility, So You Want to Talk About Race, Why I’m No Longer Talking to White People About Race, and The Anti-Racist, How to Start the Conversation About Race and Take Action, all have one thing in common. They were raised without fathers.

It is the same with disrupters from the alt or far right. An article on neo-Nazi Andrew Anglin stated that like other emotionally damaged young males, Anglin looked for a purpose on the Internet, “something ferocious to cover up the frailty he couldn’t abide in himself.”

Let’s go to Portland. The city has a 30-year history as a haven for the disaffected. One researcher summarized the population as a damaged collection of youth that cannot connect with parents.  Hence, street families, street moms and dads, and other similar nuclear-family substitutes become opinion-shapers.

In sum, the riots are simply public expressions of dysfunction, with a common root being fatherlessness.  DC
