Start of a bad ending: The Feminine Mystique

….previous (home page for this essay) Part of the series ‘Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering’ Index and preamble for series Last updated 2018 10 16 ‘The Feminine Mystique’, the start of a bad ending Betty Friedan, the author of The Feminine Mystique, had decided that women in the U.S. did have a problem, an undefinable problem that no one could put a finger on.  She nevertheless decided to describe what it was and called it “the problem with no name.”  Betty Friedan was by no means the first to express those sentiments, she merely popularized them in the U.S.A. and in doing so catered to a demand market.  She went to great … Continue reading

Divorce hurts Children, a million more in the U.S. a year

Divorce hurts children: “Each year, over a million American children suffer the divorce of their parents. Divorce causes irreparable harm to all involved, but most especially to the children. Though it might be shown to benefit some individuals in some individual cases, over all it causes a temporary decrease in an individual’s quality of life and puts some “on a downward trajectory from which they might never fully recover.”1 Divorce damages society. It consumes social and human capital. It substantially increases cost to the taxpayer, while diminishing the taxpaying portion of society. It diminishes children’s future competence in all five of society’s major tasks or institutions: family, school, religion, marketplace and government. The reversal of the cultural and social … Continue reading

The wall at the border, down Mexico way

The “wall” at the U.S.-Mexico border Originally posted on FB, January, 28, 2017 Why is the liberal media obsessing about that wall? How is it any different from the walls around one’s home? Walls keep us safe, but they cost money. “President-elect Donald Trump’s transition team has signaled to congressional Republican leaders that his preference is to fund the border wall….” Source CNN So far, we still have the right to build, sell, rent and purchase homes that have walls, walls with doors and windows in them. We still have that right and are well advised to secure the windows and to keep the doors locked, basically all day, but especially … Continue reading

Women’s March

The Women’s March on Washington (2017) was probably the single, most important event staged by feminists that evoked in the general public a rejection of feminism. The highlights of the policy platform that were impressed upon the writers of the article covering the event were these (the impressions I took away from the media coverage are added in parentheses after each item in the list): Reproductive rights (government funding of abortions and other forms of birth control); Immigration reform (legalization of illegal immigration); Healthcare reform (government funding of health care for women); Religious discrimination (more government protection for Muslim U.S. women residents, the promotion of Sharia law for women, Burqas, … Continue reading

Censorship, FB joined Google in collaboration

Censorship by Google and Facebook is a reality that should be of great concern to lovers of freedom of expression and of freedom of choice.  It made me glad to see that Tucker Carlson (an American conservative political commentator for Fox News) and Mark Steyn (a Canadian author and political commentator) joined to discuss the social-media cartel’s increasing control of the Internet, and of ideas. Justice needs to be done in  describing the combined influence of Google and FB.  It is not merely deliberate censorship that rules all.  Some of it happens by accident or perhaps on account of opportunities, an unavoidable consequence of a society that transformed itself, from having conversations via … Continue reading

Parenthood needs a village before becoming inhuman

Last updated 2018 10 23 Parenthood needs a village before becoming inhuman? The competition between nature and nurture may involve expensive, high-end, often extremely expensive technology.  The outcomes are not always viable. The urge to engage in parenthood is a human desire driven by many things: the need for procreation; hormones; ticking biological clocks; social pressure; greed for social status; the need for the intergenerational transfer of wealth, traditions and knowledge; gender activism, and by much more.  Life is short.  It was extremely short for Huxley. Every morning Ruth checks the obituaries, to see whether some of the deceased mentioned in them are known to us. This morning she pointed … Continue reading

Love, Family, Law & Order, Civilization

The regulation of human sexuality produced the heterosexual family as well as the inter-generational transfer of property, knowledge, social traditions, and it resulted in the creation and refinement of laws and governments. The regulation of human sexuality was the beginning of civilization, the symbiosis of all of those things and those that grew out of and because of them: clans, villages, towns, nations, empires, societies, and more traditions and laws that made them function more smoothly. Civilization refined itself over the course of 10,000 years.  It evolved into something great, gradually caused living conditions and the quality of life for people to become better and better, as well as  ever … Continue reading

Paul Schwennesen, separated father’s lament

Paul Schwennesen wrote a separated father’s lament that got published by the Huffington Post.  The article at the shared link is good.  It is anecdotal evidence of the consequences of a wife and mother walking out of her marriage. The father became devastated, was without a doubt fleeced by his ex who used the system to the hilt against him, by having him removed from his own home, and by having him arrested when he dared to say his good byes to his kids at the bus stop, when they went off to school. He was put in handcuffs, but apparently not into jail, until that got cleared up. A … Continue reading

Men migrate, may pick bad destination

When they can or must, men migrate to good places, where they are left in peace, where they are appreciated, where gender equality is likely to prevail. Many things need to be considered when men migrate and make decisions to go to a better or different country.  Not the least of those is what may happen in a country in which a man may wish to take up residence when the man gets into trouble with the law.  Consider some of those concerns for a number of selected countries throughout the world. How likely is a man to wind up in prison? What proportion of the prisoners in a country … Continue reading
