One way of distinguishing between the different kinds of behavior is whether they are perceived as socially acceptable or socially deviant behavior. Behavior that is perceived as socially deviant is highly stigmatized, which often causes as many or more problems for the person engaging in the behavior than the addiction itself — if there even is an addiction.
Non-custodial parents have been placed by government into this category of stigmatized behavior, most probably under the category of exploitative sex. Nothing could be further from the truth, since this exploit works both ways. There is no excuse for a jezebel, a whore, male or female, to hold an axe over someone else’s head for twenty years or life, with a never-ending debt to the state. This action is no different from murder or other crimes of passion. To make matters worse, non-custodial parents have lost their right to due process and Constitutional law on several counts. Non-custodial parents aren’t typically predators engaging in predatory behavior. Most often, the reality is the opposite. However, predatory controlling behavior continues to be rewarded, especially on the part of the state. Legal precedence says that the Constitution no longer matters. Let’s face it, this nation has ceased to be a land of freedom, but is a land of oppressive law; a rule of law, not the rule of the jungle, as President H.E. Bush so aptly put it in his acclaim for the New World Order. Some order.
The deviants are in fact, in charge of oppressive law that relegates men and women to slaves, without the right to a fair hearing or adjustment by a judge no matter the circumstances. This is truth, no matter how some are benefited from this oppression. The largest benefactor is the corporate state and the corporations that perform the odd jobs of collecting the child support while hiring the lowest possible level of employee for the job at the lowest possible rate. The big loser is the American taxpayer, who pays a substantial award for collection, which motivates the further proliferation of corporate power within the nation. We have become part of numbing enslaving system that isn’t smart enough to ask questions.
