Movers and Shakers

Filed under: General — Downunder @ 11:14 am Sun 24th October 2021

A Labour of Love as they say:

That’s the way it’s been for most people passing this way – you don’t get paid for being here … you’re more likely trying to save the remnants of your financial integrity.

That aside who is making progress in the remnants of what we used to call the Men’s Movement?

There never really was a Men’s Movement rather than a loose connection of groups with similar interests who struggled to coordinate any great resistance to the Feminist juggernaut.

Some of these groups have faded into the past others I assume have taken on a different direction to suit their funding.

Are there any real shakers and movers out there making progress?


  1. Personally, I subscribe to the philosophy of limiting my circles of activism to my circles of influence. Anything else is a sure road to unhappiness and psychosis.

  2. @1

    Compliant tribalism is as much as many people can manage these days.

    It’s a safe place offering self preservation in the face of anxiety and insecurity.

  3. It is not that men have not attempted to make change.
    The feminist juggernaut, has had many wins.
    And it’s demands are being met.

    The government is engaged now in persecution.
    Men the targets.
    Every little piece, of bias, adding up.
    Men even prosecuted, when women are not.
    The list of offences ever growing.
    Precedents growing boundaries.
    Soon anything a man does, will be a crime.
    If not already.

    When men can get prosecuted, for sending there child a Christmas present.
    Humans will likely then be doomed.

    Slowly but certainly, failure with be cancerous.
    Fatherless young men, seeing how the father was treated.
    Should they be angry now, or after the same is done to them.
    Slowly the numbers grow, contempt spreads.

    Is it not then the government that needs saving.
    Failing to be good for society.
    The angry, eventually respond.
