The Family Paradox
The purpose of life is to advance itself. To multiply and to spread. We can look for its metaphysical meaning however we want, but the purest answer lies in front of our eyes. Seeking beyond it is mostly mental masturbation.
We are biologically wired to multiply. To seek partner of the opposite sex and to create offspring. Some say we are not naturally monogamous species, others say otherwise. It is utterly irrelevant. We live in the world we live in and things are what they are. So let’s not waste time on evolutionary or sociological theories.
A family is the building block of any successful society. A couple with children form a family. Family is by blood. Multiple families form a community. Then tribes, people, race, culture. And finally. A nation.
