Disco Family Values/hot off the press

Again, I'm reading that to stop society disintegrating (It is? Fuck! Run away!), we need to go back to "family values".

Often, this means English Victorian family values.

Ah yes. Victorian Family Values. Like, make children work down coal mines, let husbands have official mistresses, wear top hats.
Did I mention corporal punishment? Oh, and a woman's place is in the kitchen, unless she's the Queen, and she can't vote, either, because it's not lady-like to know about politics.

Ladies should know about embroidery, cute animals, dancing, etcetera.

So that's Victorian Family values: Do we want them? Will they stop the disintegration of society?

Or, as Nietsze put it, are they a bunch of shit?
Will crime drop, people start going to church (apparently that's a good thing), women stop voting, children stop taking crack, if we; start hitting children; put them to work; oppress women; and encourag men to be unfaithful??
"Lazy working class scum, as conservatives call them."

What sort of idiots would promote Victorian family values? I have some ideas of which idiots, but I'm sure I don't need to spell it out... there are plenty everywhere.

Newsflash! General Augustus Pinochet, viscious dictator of Chile, has died, aged 91.

Good. I hope it wasn't too fast.
