Our Own Bomb…
Ok, so here goes. I am laying my balls on the block for the Government Guillotine.
First — a couple of presumptions….
1. The Feminist ‘Movement’ is totally divorced from, and has nothing to do with femininity.
2. The Feminist ‘Movement’ has nothing to do with engendering equality of the genders.
3. Feminism has completely lost touch with human pragmatism and reality (if it ever had it?).
4. Feminism does not represent the views of the bulk of society — and it is extremely unlikely that it even represents the views of the bulk of femaledom.
5. In the past 40 odd years, Western Governments have embraced the ideals of feminism, wholesale, resulting in the destruction of a stable platform from which to raise our children to be the leaders, educators, workers and parents of the future. That is to say, modern Family Law has done exactly the opposite of what it sets out to achieve.
What follows is what I worry about.
As we move through these times, and outspoken Feminists continue to be hell-bent on the aggrandisement of their exclusivist ideals, ably supported by Western Governments hell-bent on pandering to whomever makes the most noise, people, but men in general and fathers in particular, continue to be marginalised and squeezed further and further towards total powerlessness and ineffectitude. Sidelined with no voice, mens hands are tied while we feed Government coffers by myriad forms of taxes, and feed solo mothers, (who might chuck our children a crumb,) by paying them through the nose too. So, feminists have been and are winning the battle for women, feminist or not. Trouble is, men didn’t know there WAS a battle until it was too late, and men are now reeling and wondering what hit them. Men are confused. Here are these creatures, that say they want equality, equal pay for equal work, the right to the same jobs, to remove any power (which was perceived more than real) that men have and open it up to women, but at the same time want the door opened for them, want the man to pay for the dinner and the drinks, and want to reserve their primal needs for mothering nurture, and be paid for it too, thanks very much. Government just agrees without any shred of foresight.
As the men, who are victims of Western Governments, slowly but inexorably learn to further internalise their grief, try valiantly but vainly to shut down their own primal instincts, to be provider and protector of the family, because there is no other choice, often because there is no family, but more usually because the Government, at the behest of these entrenched feminist ideals, give them no choice, they withdraw, and the despair and oppressiveness seethes and festers within.
As, inevitably, the suppurating sore of hopelessness bursts through in fits of rage, the feminists are able to say —‘See, I told you so’ and another band-aid bit of law is passed which further marginalises those nasty men.
And so the cycle goes….and so men are the victims of Government sanctioned ‘standover tactics.’
We applaud the work of organisations such as WSPA, for championing the plight of abused and caged animals, but Governments cannot see that this is exactly what the current set of Family oriented Laws are doing to people, generally men, and particularly fathers. Indeed, in any Eastern culture, family is cornerstone of society. They have known this for thousands of years. Much of the ideology differs from Eastern culture to Eastern culture, from Oriental to Indian to the Islamic Nations etc., but the strength of family is regarded as paramount. Of course, we, in Western Society know much better. It is no surprise to me that Islamic doctrine despises Western Culture so much.
As we move through these times, children, more and more, are estranged from one of their parents, usually the father, and lamenting fathers are ‘benched’ in both the sporting and the judicial contexts. Meanwhile the mothers are looking to the removed fathers, through the Government, for financial support, while at the same time engaging in dodgy activities, again with Government Support, to prevent these fathers from having any parental effect, if not contact.
While this is going on, fathers being corralled in their droves, away from their natural habitat (providing for and protecting their family), the Government expects ‘You still have to provide, but you can’t have any of the rewards, because you have been unilaterally excluded from your family, and by the way your children need protecting from you. We will just have your money thanks’, there is another, perhaps more insidious effect taking place.
While this is all going on and our children have less and less contact with their fathers, our children are all being ‘feminised.’ It cannot miss. This is of particular concern for our sons, who will grow into adults raised only by mothers. Some of these sons will be raised by mothers who are not feminists, and those men will feel more displaced than their fathers, and they could be forgiven for thinking that they had been ‘farmed’ for their sperm and for their earning capacity. Others will be raised by mothers who are feminists, and those will grow into men who are more displaced than their fathers, their mothers, sisters and brothers and will hate both men and women. Think of the implications of that. What will happen to male suicide rates do you think? It will not be long, unless something is done, before this is irreversible, maybe two or three generations.
Now that, right there, the whole of that last paragraph, contains a real BOMB.
I cannot believe that Western Governments are so ‘blinkered’, so ‘one-eyed’ and so ‘brainwashed’, that it hasn’t occurred to any of them, even when they have been told and told.
Very soon, when men really get sick of it, and withdraw from the workforce and go on the dole to minimise their paternal liabilities, which they will; when they take the other option and elect not to have children because of the associated legal, financial and emotional risks; and they will; and then when we all old grow old together and put our collective hand out for the pension, while no-one is in the workforce to pay tax, what will you do for money then Mr Obama, Mr Brown, Mr Rudd, Mr Key and all the other know-all boffins. Wakey wakey people. Do any of you think that mothers, who now enjoy the laws which allow them to be paid money to be mothers, raising useless disaffected boys into useless disaffected men, and girls into mothers, are going to fund it?
Meanwhile, over in the Eastern World, they just watch amusedly, while the Western World destroys itself from within. We should be far less worried about the risk of North Korea tossing a nuke towards the West than about this pressing concern right here at home (I use that term loosely). North Korea doesn’t need to hurl us a nuke, they are watching too. We have our own BOMB.
Well said, Glen. I have made remarks in the past, that the future is probably Islamic, because they have the sense of purpose that we lack.
There are military parralells however. There are many examples of a population taking a very long time to realize how opressed it has been, before a counter-reaction starts. Once started, it becomes self-energising, as people suddenly realize that this is not right, and that they can do something about it. Once the snowball gets to a critical size, it becomes hard to stop. There is often a critical moment (such as the black women who refused to sit at the back of the bus). The counter movement has started to roll already in NZ and in other countries. The next 10 years will be interesting times.
Well said… it only scratches the surface however. That’s not a criticism, just a truth.
We will just have your money thanks. Who else here has heard their ex say this or something similar to it? I know I have.
I have always been of the (conspiratal) opinion that the break down of the family is precisely what certain people in society wish to acheive in order to better control the population. The feminists are merely the nasty little lapdogs for a greater goon.
Strong family networks with strong values are very difficult to influence to ones own twisted ideas.
Yep – check this out from an earlier post….(haven’t figured out the link thingy)
“The nuclear family must be destroyed, and people must find better ways of living together…. Whatever its ultimate meaning, the breakup of families now is an objectively revolutionary process…. No woman should have to deny herself any opportunities because of her special responsibilities to her children….”
“Functions of the Family,” WOMEN: A Journal of Liberation, Fall, 1969 – Linda Gordon
Of course, it also means some chump has to pay. And not only in terms of dollars.
A great read Glen.
Yep the west is shrinking demographically and Islam is exploding
(no pun intended!)
Here’s an article which describes the western bomb a bit more.
Thanks people for your comments.
Skeptik, I had not seen that article you referred me to, but note with interest it contains the quote in my reply to Scott.
In a perverse sort of way, I am pleased that article (from 2004) exists – I was beginning to think I had a problem with perception – but maybe not eh? Thanks.
Awesome Glen. I agree 100%. The feminists did a good job of sowing discontent amoung women and in the process it has almost destroyed western culture. I was a stay at home dad for a while. It was awesome! Feminism was a cruel hoax against women.
Yep I believe you man.
I was a stay at home dad for a while too.
Compared to working in a paid job it was cushy.
No supervisor staring over my work, No colleagues out to do me in with workplace poltics in the cut throat rush for cash. No-one telling me when to take a cofee break or lunch break. No performance reviews, production deadlines, mergers and aquisitions.
Women did get sucked in by Germaine Greer and her ilk who bemoaned being a stay at home Mom as being lobotomised or worse still oppressed.
I agree with you that feminism is doing far more damage than anything the North Koreans could ever do.
I spit on feminists whose policies harm my children and the Hollywood actors in Parliament who sit on their arses while families are destroyed, all the while collecting the proceed$.
Feminism has become such a dirty word. They’ll probably need to commandeer another word to describe themselves. MEism is available.
I guess you get what you pay for. Maybe Adam should have offered an arm and a leg instead of a rib?
