In the final analysis, implementing the Law of Love meant the forcible breakup of one marriage after another, with no consideration of the effect that would have on the children. Didn't this really get into full gear around the late 1980's with Maria personally pushing for all kinds of marriages to break up? Up till then breakups seem to have been enforced whenever one mate was "needed" for some job, so her or she was just pulled away from their family. But by the late 80's Maria seems to have gotten it into her head that it was such a good idea that LOTS of marriages should be broken up, just to make "yielded pawns" out of the broken up ex-partners.

Berg boasted that all children in the Family belonged to everyone and "anyone could give them love." As if Isaac being mobbed by happy little kids at the Macau farm was supposed to be some big proof of this? Hogwash! The kids weren't looking to Isaac like one of their many parents who provided them security and love. They were just excited to have a visitor to their isolated Home.
