No I think Muslims have it spot on. Family is the most important thing in the world.
Radical feminists and Marxists want the family broken up. Feminists because they want men out of the home and Marxists because the want people to be dependant on the state.
The good news is that soon Muslims are going to vastly out number feminists and Marxists, so in the long run things are looking up for the family.

I’ve never heard of Marxists being against family?
Also, it’s going to take quite a long time for Muslims to become a majority. So 50 plus years will be needed.
Family is a collective institution that threatens individual rights.

Yes, to a certain extent, in my opinion. On the one hand, they place values on family as it's a key influence, mostly, as to how a child will turn out. By having family at the centre, the child is taught with discipline etc (depending on how the family functions). On the other hand however, it doesn't emphasise individuality and self worth, as it places family on a pedestal which the child should follow and strive to be like. Although, not wrong in theory, a child shouldn't be forced to act a specific way, due to their parent's' ways of life. For example, homosexuality. Obviously, if the family is supportive, the child will appreciate and live life how they want without being scared of how society judges them. Alternatively, if the family is against homosexuality, the child will be in constant turmoil, as they wouldn't want to disappoint society and their parents, but also they don't want to hide their feelings. Thus the element of their own self worth slowly diminishes, as they're not aware of what to do.

it's because they are a source of the perpetuating cycle of inequality - things as small as inheritance of land for rich families, teaching the values of classism, and children feeling the need to keep up with other kids by buying the latest stuff which fuels the power of the bourgeoisie.

Need more family involvement in Britain. The state is too influential.
