Second-wave Feminism — Ideological Foundation

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series The ideological foundation of Second-wave Feminism Second-wave Feminism  is (as are most other forms of feminism) firmly rooted in communism and in the prevalence throughout history of socialism and its never-changing goal, Utopia, Paradise on Earth. Communism can be made impervious to all criticism, by giving it a name that makes it untouchable, say, Feminism.  Communism and any other ideology become intrepid, as soon as they assume the label or even only the appearance of being an aspect of feminism. “Feminism, Socialism, and Communism are one in the same, and Socialist/Communist … Continue reading

Divorce causes population decline

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series Population decline Women’s liberation triggered population decline, not immediately, but it not only intensified the demand for birth control (that is, the prevention of conception), it also intensified the demand for “birth control” by means of abortion.  The consequences of that are now becoming visible, because actions have consequences.  We are harvesting what the feminists and other liberals of the ’60s have sown. Any country that has total fertility rates (the number of children born to an average woman of fertile age) that are above replacement level, that is, they suffice to maintain … Continue reading

Divorce causes escalating suicide rates

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series Escalating suicide rates Divorce causes escalating suicide rates, primarily for men and to a far lesser extent for women.  It stands to reason that, if the suicide rates for the sexes were reversed, that the suicide rates of women would receive far greater attention than the far higher ones of men do now.  Yet, it can be argued that virtually all of society conspires to downplay and preferably ignore that men die through suicide in epidemic proportions, in very large numbers, in each passing year. There are reasons why men commit suicide … Continue reading

The divorce revolution ends reign of the family

…. previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series The divorce revolution ends the reign of the family The divorce revolution – for all practical ends and purposes – put an end to traditional marriage vows that once meant much and were taken seriously: The man: “I, [name of groom], take thee, [name of bride], to be my wedded wife, to have and to hold from this day forward, for richer or poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till in death we part, and with this ring I thee wed, and with my body I thee honor, and … Continue reading

Second-wave feminism causes harmful fallout

….previous page Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series Fallout from second-wave feminism Second-wave feminism is liked by many, but it is definitely not all good, far from it. “May you live in interesting times,” is a popular expression. Well, we now live in interesting times, as we watch ten-thousand years of civilization’s evolution reverse or at the very least go into unexplored, dangerous territory. The traditional nuclear family had for 10,000 years been the basic building block of society.  It had been in a symbiotic relationship with civilization.  It can and should be argued that the traditional nuclear family, in the greater context, is civilization. The … Continue reading

Actual lifespans versus estimated life expectancies

This gallery contains 15 photos.

(Revision 2018 02 19: to identify a serious error in a report published by the Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation, a report on aspects of suicides in India.) Actual average lifespans in the United States began to decline in the year 2013 and were still falling in 2016.  Should one not have expected for that to have become front-page news in 2013 and to continue to  be front-page news?  Will President Trump help to make an improvement in that trend?  It is a worthwhile effort.  It seems to be far more valuable to improve the health of his nation than to try to make good on the failed promise … Continue reading

Mass killer, spree killer, rampage killer, serial killer…?

Mass killer, spree killer, rampage killer, serial killer… What is the difference? ‘A Nation of Killers?‘ argues that nationality is not a factor in serial killing and implies that neither is the sex of the perpetrator. It uses the term ‘spree killer’ to identify the phenomenon of mass killers but implies that the borders between the categories serial killer and mass killer are blurred. ‘Breaking the Silence of the Lambs: Female Serial Killers and Collective Amnesia‘ identifies that men do not have a monopoly on being serial killers and that our collective amnesia with respect to female serial killers is quite recent (a consequence of the effectiveness of public relations efforts … Continue reading
