Traditional values

The editorial "Families in Need," May 31, calls attention to the growing concern over the fate of the traditional family worldwide and then seeks to place some kind of positive spin on trends in the name of women's liberation. Many men (and some religions) still have a long way to go in granting women the respect and opportunity they deserve. But both men and women lose when "liberation" becomes a selfish disregard for the paramount responsibility of bringing up the next generation. The links between the crumbling "traditional" family and many of the ills we face today are too obvious to be naively dismissed. History would tell us their access is most often through the "traditional" family. Without it, we're in big trouble.
