26. The Core Unit Which Determines the Strength of Any Society is the Family; Therefore, the Government Should Foster and Protect Its Integrity.

This principle showcases the structure the Founding Fathers saw in the family unit. They saw equality between men and women as well as equality between mothers and fathers. They laid out responsibilities of parents to children as well as the responsibilities of children to their parents. The emphasis on the family may seem quaint in today’s culture, but it is interesting to see it written down and stated with no apologies by the Founders.

Return to Founding Principles...
