Feminism is ostensibly for women’s rights, but its major achievements have been to deprive many women of the security and comfort of families, to create record numbers of women and childrenin poverty or on social assistance, and to raise suicide rates for men to record proportions.

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

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

Communism → second-wave feminism → social re-engineering

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

Maya Angelou — fame not facts

Maya Angelou, “Trying to support her son as a single mother, she worked as a pimp, prostitute and _____.” How does such a passage make it into an 8th Grade maths test?  That depends… Nobel Prizes are hard to get, Nobel Peace Prizes easier. A Nobel Prize is awarded to people who excelled in a field of science and worked hard at doing so, while a Nobel Peace Prize is awarded primarily to someone who makes the grade for political expediency.  Nobel Peace Prize winners are in the company of, Aristide Briand and Gustav Stresemann (1926); Henry A. Kissinger and Le Duc Tho (1973); Rigoberta Menchú Tum (1992); Yasser Arafat, Shimon Peres and Yitzhak Rabin (1994) Kim Dae-jung (2000); The United Nations … 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

Surgical Fires — Calling Doctor Semmelweis

Dr. Semmelweis is no longer with us, surgical fires are. Laser surgery is at times the source of ignition of fires in operating rooms.  Laser surgery and Dr. Semmelweis’ efforts had and still have similar consequences, good and bad ones.  They save lives, quite a few on account of laser surgery, but vastly more, perhaps as many as or more than half a billion in the case of Dr. Semmelweis’ efforts.  Unfortunately, they also caused and cause injury and death, very rarely in the case of laser surgery, perhaps never in the case of Dr. Semmelweis but once.  What he discovered killed him.  It made him a martyr who died … 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

Feminism affects Fraser Institute report

Feminism officially arrived at the Fraser Institute (FI). That appears to have been a factor that caused the down-grading of Canada’s rank in the FI’s Economic Freedom of the World, 2017 Annual Report. The Fraser Institute announced: “Canada no longer among top 10 most economically free countries  (Appeared in the Winnipeg Sun, October 6, 2017)”. Gender disparity features prominently in the FI’s Economic Freedom of the World, 2017 Annual Report. Gender Disparity Index This year the index published in Economic Freedom of the World includes an adjustment for gender disparity to take into account the fact that in many nations women are not legally accorded the same level of economic … Continue reading

James Damore opposes Google corporate PC

Will James Damore’s protest against Google’s corporate program to impose political correctness have as much impact on the fortunes of feminism and political correctness as did the witch hunt that targeted Tim Hunt? Will the impact last as long as did the reverberations of the troubles encountered by Tim Hunt? It is not a question of the glass being half-full or half-empty. It is – more realistically – that, to a man dying of thirst, a drop of water in an empty bucket may seem as if it will save his life, while, more objectively, the man better try to find more water, as one or two drops will not … Continue reading
