Family relationships are more than just another adult relationship

Without a doubt the most asinine comments I get involve the observation that   “Molyneux isn't against the family.  He is only about voluntarily ending unhealthy relationships.” 
I have a question for those commenter's and anyone else who thinks that is “all Moly is saying”.  If the only thing Moly puts forth is this simpleton axiom, then why are you listening to him on anything related to the family? 

I suspect that the answer is because that is NOT all he believes.  Like all con men, he starts with an obvious truth and then corrupts it.  He drones on and on, as if he had a clue, as to what a healthy parent child relationship is about.  In the course of his never ending pod-casts  he offers one seemingly obvious but totally incorrect message.  Moly and his wife try to get you to believe that your relationships with your parents are no different than any other “adult” relationship in your life.  He claims that you should have the same standard with your parents as other relationships.  As reasonable as that sounds at first, if you take any time to consider it, you have to find that it is a truly silly construct.   

A healthy relationship with your parents is nothing like other adult relationships.  It shouldn't be.  A healthy relationship with your parents involves lots of things that would never exist anywhere else in your life.  If you are doing well and you are happy, your parents are happy right along with you.  No one else in your life cares about you in that way.  If you are screwing up, your parents will likely speak up.  If you have a brain, you will at least give their opinion some consideration.  If you reject their advice, they will take it in stride and wish you well.  In what other relationship in your life, can you just show up at their home and be welcomed in no matter what.  Your parents are planning on how they can give you their estate when they die.  Is there any other ‘adult relationship’ you have that involves estate planning?   Or how about simple table manners.  Your parents provided you with food, security, shelter and love for the first 20 years or so of your life.  They endured all your bad behavior and peccadilloes and still supported you and loved you.  As a matter of morality and ethics, you should return the favor and forgive them their transgressions.  Anyone can come up with countless additional examples of why the healthy family relationship is, and should be, fundamentally different from 'other adult relationships.'  
If you think differently, feel free to get a grip.

  1. Greetings to all. I have a success story I would like to share.

    3 1/2 years ago Stefan Molyneux and FDR broke up our family and stole our son. I don't have to tell those of you that experience the same thing how my husband and I were feeling and the thoughts we had - words can't describe it.

    About 3 weeks ago, we got an e-mail from our son, reaching out. He asked some questions and we wrote back anxiously awaiting a response back. 1 week later, he knocked at the front door!!!! Praise God - we have our son back. All our prayers and the prayers of others worked! It is sooo good to hear him say "I love you" again. Please, for those of you going through the same life changing experience -don't give up. We will keep praying for you too.

    Signed - Reborn and smiling again.

    1. I'm a parent and new to all of this FDR stuff...so happy for the return of your son! So, If my son is defooing from my husband and I and his whole extended family on both sides, what's the best piece of advice? I'm thinking prayer is the best, and then wait on God?...We are all on the East coast and my son has moved to the west coast to make this process easier for him. I'm afraid if we argue with him and try and be logical with him about all the inconsistencies and cultishness of Molyneux, he'll just decide we are even more corrupt and prove he did the right thing. Ask your son what made him realize that Molyneux is just a man with some new ideas, but he is preying on young people who are disillusioned with the government and with lack of jobs and with the meaning of life, and since he had a terrible childhood, which I'm sorry for what he went through, he is pushing his bitterness and anger on all our sons and daughters!

  2. Hello,

    my name is Konstantinos Rozakis and I am Greek, as Christina Papadopoulos - Moly's wife. (Pure coincidence!)

    I came across Moly a couple of weeks ago and have started studying his work. I am very critical, I realize that his ideas are radical, but I have not rejected him yet - or accepted his theory.

    However, let me comment on your article above. Your sentence "If you are doing well and you are happy, your parents are happy right along with you." SHOULD be true but in many cases ISN'T! My mother, for instance, used to complain a lot about my unwillingness to mary. She was definitely not happy right along with me concerning the fact that I was 40 and single.

    Today, I am 45 and maried. I also have two boys, two-and-a-half years old. Now, she's complaining about my job, it is not getting me anywhere she says...

    All I want to say is, try not to generalize. Keep your mind open.

    Best Regards,

    Konstantinos

    1. GET AS FAR AWAY FROM MOLYNEUX AS YOU CAN NOW!!!! RUN AS FAST AS YOU CAN. HE IS A MONSTER!

      THERE ARE OTHER WAYS TO WORK THINGS OUT WITH YOUR PARENTS. TURNING AWAY FROM THEM IS NOT THE ANSWER.

      GOD BLESS YOU.
