Marriage is not so magic after all

As I blogged about before, Steven Pinker in his book "Better Angels" firmly believes that marriage has the power to stop men from committing violent crimes.

Another member of the "intellectual dark web" Jordan Peterson also believes that marriage prevents male violence.

Will someone please ask them how they can maintain this position when the data show that as violence levels have dropped, so have marriage rates? 

You can't expect their gullible fans to question their claims, but why don't journalists ever call them to account for their easily-debunked statements? 

This is how they get away with being such charlatans while claiming to stand for Reason. It's thoroughly disgusting.
