In this episode of the misanthropic life, we discuss the definition of family. This is a hotly debated topic today with many wishing to exclude families that don’t fit their "ideal" of what a family should look like. But is there an ideal family? Each era and culture has had a vastly different take on what family means. This argument, like so many other cultural battles will have repercussions for generations to come.
