The Cold War


The Cold War era (and its successor era) changed how men were viewed by women.  In the WWII period and earlier, men as a whole were considered to be the bulwark against which threats to the nation would be stopped, and afforded much respect as a result.

Nuclear (and more so thermonuclear) weapons changed this.  No longer were men as whole the defense of a nation, rather the weapons were.  And they required only a few men to develop and deploy them.

Furthermore, all civilians (including women) were now on the potential front line.  This made the situation a twofer in terms of emasculating men as defenders of the nation.

Of course, the U.S. still had small wars to fight, and men did fight in them.  But from the perspective of women, they were sideshows.  None of these wars were any real threat to women.  No invasion was forthcoming.  The result was that women had little respect for the men that did fight in this actions.

This situation is just one more nail in the coffin in terms of men’s degraded status with respect to women.  And we all pay the price for that.

    I do see your point. That our government could send our young men off to a shooting war with no end in sight would tend to erode women’s confidence in men and raise their confidence in Daddy Government. This is something that I ahdn’t considered until you mentioned it.

    Very Unusual Women and Cold War Not (by Padawan, Blog Laureate 2014 – ?)

    They pass it from mother to daughter through time
    Through many generations
    Teachings constructed with old words of rhyme
    And secret regulations:

    To form a space inside their eye,
    An intricate outline of maleness,
    Then feed the form and style of a guy
    Into the space to detail it.

    If he fills the space he fills their heart,
    Their dreams are so pragmatic,
    They practice their lust with such trained art
    The union for him is ecstatic

    I think any time humanity in general feels safe (in a ‘far away from the pointy edge of survival way), people dissociate their personal freedoms/protections from the source of those freedoms and protections. IOW, people believe that the law itself, as though by the magical power of words on paper, protects them rather than the actual source, which are the people who enforce those laws. Obviously laws are just wishes written on paper without the power of enforcement (which requires actual people, even in the cold war, even after the cold war). People become complacent…it’s just what they do. We’ve become complacent about a lot of things. How many of us take our health for granted until we can’t?

    What the cold war did was birth super powers and proxies for super powers. But our metaphorical walls are still protected by strong men willing to do violence on our behalf. And the laws are enforced this way, and pretty much every equation in life, from the family and children to the neighborhood to districts, states, and nations are a cost/gains violence equation. We’re just so protected we don’t think about it…but that didn’t start or end with the cold war (heck, we had an entire ‘lost generation’ after WWI and war had been officially eradicated forever via the Kellogg-Briand pact, or so they thought).

    Yea the Cold War was pretty damn hot for me and mine.

    But as I have said before one of the reasons betas look so beta is men now work away from the home and family so women and kids rarely see his technical expertise, dealing with difficult people, leading, creating etc etc. Girl#1 knows what I do for a living but the reality of what I am didn’t sink in until we had problems with the local vibrant diversity. Until that moment The Ton was theoretical; after that few moments The Ton was real,practical, tangible.

    Just thinking further about analogous things we take for granted…running fresh water and electricity/heat is a big one. If you’re forced to live without that stuff, you never take it for granted again, but most people do and don’t think about it, they just use it. The internet. GPS. And so forth. Lose those things and you appreciate them, but most of us take it for granted, just as most of us take our freedoms/rights/privileges for granted as a sort of ‘entitlement’ (hey! it’s written in the Constitution we have inherent rights! But…what makes them “inherent” exactly?). It’s the way people are wired (not just women, though of course they require protections more, and take such things for granted more…unless and until they no longer have those protections).

    I agree too Ton, industrial life happens away from view. People live mostly in cities and suburbs. The manly tasks become taking out the trash and mowing the lawn, rather than butchering the cow or shooting the coyote. I think in the rural area where I live, men have more opportunity to show this side, there are things to build, lift, fight, and conquer around a farm. Men are appreciated (and wanted! I want one!)

What has changed is the social empowerment aimed specifically at removing Dread.

    Although initial arousal in women is tied to fear, resolution of arousal is tied to lack of fear. Brain-wise this is the entire reason why women have more frequent sex with alphas even though they have much better orgasms with betas.

    Why stop with just eliminating laws prohibiting violence against women? That would kind of make it necessary to eliminate laws against all violence…since people tend to get upset when they see violence happen. They don’t typically just look away, and the societies where they do aren’t worth living in. Better hope you’re the biggest thug on the street in a place like that. Of course, there’s almost always someone bigger.

    How about eliminating all laws? Need to rely on “apex alpha government” to protect your property? A real man would stand there and defend his land! It ain’t yours if you ain’t steppin’ on it…no need for big daddy to say you own this or that or the other. Just take whatever car suits your fancy and keep it if you can! For that matter, currency is just a means of exchange backed by that apex alpha so who needs that? Print your own money and back it by your own economy.

    I have now wasted all the time I’m going to spend talking about legalizing rape.
