We don’t women to suffer, do we? Here are some ideas on topic. First from HappyHouseWifey,
First of all, NAWALT. But I think the main thing in politics is that it deals with large scale decisions. And that is why policy should be based on generalities and averages, providing as much wiggle room for individuals as possible, but keeping the general good first and foremost in mind. That is why sometimes, human lives are sacrificed, for the greater purpose. On a micro level I think sexism is wrong, you treat people based on the individual they are and the individual YOU are. In politics, you can’t afford to do that. You have to look at the bigger picture.
Because of this anti discrimination extremism that is currently going on, little blonde toddlers are being searched and bearded foreigners let through when they fear terrorism. It’s ridiculous – look at the odds. But they want to keep up a show of Gutmenschness at the expense of security.
Similar problem with women voting. Women as a group are muuuuch more submissive and have this herd-think. That makes them very sensitive to propaganda. They are too easily led, too easily ruled – they long for it. Much more so than I think even red pill men realise. And more so when it cannot be admitted, in a feminist climate. They will look to be controlled and dominated by ideals or government instead. They need a certain amount of oppression, as it were. And I know how harsh that sounds.
I believe government should fear the people, and for that to be the case, the people should not meekly follow popular political thought. Male common sense and stubborn hard-headedness (NAMALT, but large scale) are a better way of keeping things in check.
I don’t think it a personal sacrifice if I don’t get the vote. The men in my life vote based on the common good, not just male interests. They wouldn’t start trying to make womens lives miserable. And I’ve been letting my husband decide my vote for years anyway.
What people tend to forget, is that the derogatory “keep her barefoot and pregnant” used to be the answer to “how to make women happy”. The barefoot thing referred to her not having to leave the house.
I am very pro-women and pro womens happiness. Look at depression rates, prozac (ab)use. Women are miserable. It’s because they are made to deny themselves. Their true power is taken away because everything is judged by masculine values.
And disclaimer: NO I don’t think muslims get it right, they actually mistreat their women. But that’s another story.
Here is what commenter Horseman had to say,
Voting and leading together are at heart about deciding the long term good for the society.
Food, shelter, defense, stability.
It is looking at the overall good ahead of self, party, philosophy, worldview.
Then practicality. View the world, actions, outcomes as they are.
Predict realistically and choose accordingly.
This requires rationality tempered with empathy and will to carry it through.
E.g. Any nation requires military snd that means some of your best citizens die for you. When do you deploy them? In defense of actual attack obviously. But if your neighbors are allies (like the u.s.) then never? No. For expansion for resources or defense of allies? Yes. What resources? What allies? Logically Trump is right on the resource issue. U.S.Canada have oil. Why police the middle east? But allies in the area? World stability?
Politically Russia is expansionist and still authoritarian. Politically they should be checked. Again worth lives? Or let Europe fend for itself?
Just one example. Norfolk and Miami will be underwaster by 2050. Start relocation now? Build seawalls at billions? Any action panic the population but these are decade long projects. When to act?
These are just simple examples from a lay farmer. I cant imagine the real complexities.
To rule requires one to have in their blood a desire to do for and protect the People. First. Full stop. So self serving or emotional kneejerk actions are the enemy. Ones actions must speak for the commitment and that passion. Deeds not words.
For me Mike Rowe or Elon Munk for leader. Trump a close second. And Paul Martin up here.
Same to elect a leader i think only those willing or who have shown they will serve the people dhould vote. I like Heinliens idea in troopers. Only military or civil corps (engineers, miners, rescue services, etc not public office drones) who have really risked forThe People should vote.
I also like the idea of those bred to serve…winter is coming but monarchies always get a loon in the woodpile unfortunately.
What to do?
