Sixty years ago, the UN declared the family the natural and fundamental unit of society. Today no one knows what family means. In response to this unprecedented confusion, The Natural Family: A Manifesto defines the family based on universal human experience. Insisting, without apology, on the reality of the natural family, the manifesto issues a personal call to men and women to rediscover the fundamental source of life, joy, and freedom.

Carlson and Mero frankly admit that those who should have defended marriage were asleep when the full-scale assault on the family began in the 1960s. Even more seriously, most of them joined the assault by eventually adopting the very assumptions philosophical, social, and economic that have almost extinguished the family s traditional legal and social privileges. Family values is now an empty slogan for those with some nostalgic attachment to the family but who have no idea what the family really is.
Carlson and Mero examine why the family is in crisis, the ways in which the natural family is the source of culture and freedom, and what families can do to preserve the most fundamental and wholesome relationship on earth. Assured that human nature is on their side, Carlson and Mero can be both realistic about the family s plight and relentlessly optimistic. The Natural Family: A Manifesto is a road map, especially for the young, for rebuilding a culture of freedom, joy, and love.
