The Swedish government's destruction of the family

Originally the Swedish tax system was purposely set up to make women join the labor for.  With its very progressive tax rates and each individual being taxed on their own income, not the family's income, families are much better off having two people earn $50,000 each than one earning $100,000.  There is an additional point that was original noted by Sherwin Rosen.  From the WSJ:
Swedish author and educator Jonas Himmelstrand says although parents are given long parental leaves to spend time with their children in the first year of life, the Swedish system of universal day care could encourage parents to disconnect after that time. 
"The state is sending out the message that you don't have to raise your children yourself," says Mr. Himmelstrand. "Day care and schools will raise your kids, and when the kids come home, you can just be their friend." . . .
With essentially free day care, parents are giving up a lot financially to stay home with their kids.  It is also hard to convince grandparents or others to help out.  After all, why are the grandparents willing to be inconvenienced when free day care is available?

My own belief is that separating parents from their children is all part of the government's scheme to indoctrinate children.

Giving families option for affordable daycare when the parents have to work to make ends meet allows children to have a healthy childhood when otherwise they might not get a chance. I call that a big positive investment into the future of a nation. Best possible investment a government can make.

Love your books and research, but please don't make this kind of uninformed leaps.

Greetings from Finland (neighbor nation from Sweden).

This has been going here in the States for quite some time. Take the indoctrination, and the American form of Socialism whereupon Fathers are forced away from families, and we have a real mess on our hands that some in government want in order to impose more rules upon us all.

This makes me wonder how the History, and the Constitution of the U.S. are being taught in our schools. if at all...
