“In my study of communist societies, I came to the conclusion that the purpose of communist propaganda was not to persuade or convince, not to inform, but to humiliate; and therefore, the less it corresponded to reality the better. When people are forced to remain silent when they are being told the most obvious lies, or even worse when they are forced to repeat the lies themselves, they lose once and for all their sense of probity. To assent to obvious lies is…in some small way to become evil oneself. One’s standing to resist anything is thus eroded, and even destroyed. A society of emasculated liars is easy to control. I think if you examine political correctness, it has the same effect and is intended to.”
― Theodore Dalrymple
Feminism is a bunch of lies. The falsehoods spewed forth to keep men down are lies (e.g. rape culture, doofus dads, kangaroo campus courts, divorce settlements, DV laws). The laws that result from these falsehoods are unjust. Men suffer humiliation every day by acquiescing to all of this. Men young (especially young) and old understand. Sometimes they know it explicitly, sometimes they have just a nagging inkling, but the sense is in most men.
Men swallow the BS, for life is seemingly tolerable, and there is no clear path to active resistance. They engage with women, they disengage with women, and go through life. But living the lie takes a toll on them. If they are fortuitous enough to see another path, then life can be better. Unfortunately to few men go down this path. The truth will set you free, and to cleanse yourself of the lies is liberating. It was for me.
But what about the women? Hillary stated that women suffer the most in war, and she could be correct in this case. For war was effectively declared on men, and women will suffer. As in the Soviet Union, men will disengage. They will do enough to survive. They will find outlets (sexual and non-sexual). Lies can only get you so far; eventually the bill comes due.
The beatings will continue until morale improves.
