Families must be restructured to feudal or clan lines if one wishes to promote individual liberty and security from the bottom up.
This habit of relying upon the feds or some outside force to interfere in your own issues, is part of the problem, not the solution. When you don’t defend yourself, the person that has the power to save you, is also your slave master. There’s nothing stopping them, given the power imbalance.
Of course, feudal or clan lines merely requires one thing, a hierarchy, it doesn’t require a change in cultural or social values.
For a prototypical clan head, the male is it, sometimes the female is instead.
The male patriarch handles the hierarchy for the males, the females handle the hierarchy for the females, with some cross over due to age or authority.
Presupposing 3 males, 3 females, we have this structure.
Clan Patriarch 45 years old
Clan heir male 20 years old
Clan second male 15 years old
Clan Matriarch 45 years old
Clan third oldest 14 years old
Clan fourth oldest 12 years old
The second oldest male cannot be commanded by the third or fourth oldest, the age gap is too wide and they aren’t even in the same hierarchy or chain of command, necessarily. But the matriarch can command the second oldest male with authority equal to the patriarch, mostly.
The heir commands protects the second oldest male, forming a fraternal relationship similar to feudal relations. Protection in exchange for obedience and loyalty, honor for honor, love for love, obedience for security. The second oldest male then has his own responsibilities, he commands the third and fourth oldest. The third oldest, in the absence of any higher authority, is responsible for the guidance, protection, and safety of the fourth oldest.
Many US families are a de facto dictatorship. Extremely weak to insurgents or other attackers that prioritize hitting vulnerabilities and soft targets. A feudal system is not as “soft”, even the Japanese aristocrats, the samurai lineages, had their women train in the naginata for home defense. The women were objectively inferior to the males in the Japanese hierarchy, however, but that doesn’t stop them.
Btw, in a modern world, it wouldn’t necessarily matter if the heir was male. The designated heir, oldest scion, could be female as well. And they would have the same feudal responsibilities as a male heir.
In order to reinforce the chain of command and the loyalty of subordinates, special names and marks are used to designate one’s proper rank in the hierarchy. This rank is then reinforced when every member of the hierarchy recognizes who is above them and who is below them. Just like a very stable dog and wolf pack. Once the hierarchy is confirmed, violence reduces to almost nothing, everything else is handled via social reform and pressure. The males set an example as the protector of their families, so that their younger sisters can take as an example of what masculine qualities they would like to find in a husband. The younger sisters obey their brothers and help keep the family traditions alive with food culture or some other thing.
The issue of personal freedom usually comes into conflict, but given the social metamorphosis of the 21st century, most of that can be re-engineered. America has a black traitor on the Throne whipping whites and blacks around as a traitor King. Don’t tell me social norms can’t be modified, they certainly can be if the Will is there. Most people are gutless though. That’s what the hierarchy is, to force people to learn how to take responsibility and care for those weaker than them, while obeying those with stronger authorities of a proper nature.
The older family members are trained and conditioned to place their lives at risk to protect the youngest.
Thus even a 13 or 11 year old male is expected to jump in front of a rabid dog to shield his little sister or brother.
Insane and harsh? Perhaps. Warrior training, though, it qualifies. Better protection against pedos than the others, especially the ones in the family.
Because yes, the uncle can come in and scoop up some children for his fun, like Hollywood and Demoncrats do. But first they have to go through the direct superiors of those children, for those superiors will be watching their subordinates like a hawk. After all, without someone to obey them, they are just the gophers of their older brothers and sisters, appendages of their fathers and mothers. Parasites, helpless parasites. The motivation to change themselves, to become stronger and better humans, comes from the deepest depths of their heart. It cannot come from a dictatorship at the top suppressing dissent and Ordering People to Obey.
