"‘Sex and the Problem of Human Rights,’ in the new issue of The Independent Review...is, by far, the most sober and rational statement of the dilemmas and contradictions posed by social problems and political issues. It is not often that I find myself nodding and saying to myself at least: this is exactly the way in which I would have framed the issues."

*A Note About These Articles
Many of these articles are connected with the hideous system of family law practiced in the United States, Canada, and increasingly elsewhere -- by far the more repressive government machinery ever created in the English-speaking democracies and the greatest civil rights abuse in the Western world today. For better or worse, these are the most strongly-worded works ever published in mainstream publications about these inhuman atrocities. My charges include criminal wrongdoing and repression by government officials. Perhaps my allegations are inaccurate and irresponsible. If so, none has ever been refuted, and none of the editors has ever changed or retracted a word. At the same time, these serious charges, charges, published in respectable journals (some of them peer-reviewed academic journals), have not been answered by the formulators of public policy nor by the scholars who defend them. Neither have these policymakers acted upon these criticisms. Officials should be required to address these charges one way or the other.
Moreover, I am not the only one making these allegations. For a list of corroborating statements by other writers, researchers, and journalists, click here.
This is only a small sample of articles I have published on these and connected topics. A complete list, with citations, is available here. (Some have been preserved here.) Not all are necessarily still available on the internet, and I do not necessarily have up-to-date links to each one that might be, though many may still be available because they have been copied and re-posted by various people and groups. I should also have PDF's or original typescripts to all of them and will gladly provide that if you write to me at SKBaskerville@gmail.com.
Please feel free to download and reprint any of these articles in your own publications and on your websites and to circulate them by electronic mail. All articles may be reproduced provided credit is given to the original publication.
