In previous discussions on the topic of male reproductive rights, or to be more accurate, the complete absence of male rights in a climate of male financial responsibility for the exercised reproductive rights of women, that responsibility enforced by courts and police : the word , the appropriate word to describe men legally bound to finance somebody else's unilateral decision to reproduce is slavery.
That is the correct word. However, we generally avoid using it because for most people, when they hear it, all higher cognitive function exits through the nearest window.
You’re being ridiculous, you’re exaggerating, slavery doesn’t exist anymore, and my very favourite, any variation of the claim that we live in a patriarchy.
It this point in the discussion, when dealing with an MRA – or a realist, that is, a person who is both acquainted with, and who values reality, consideration of the higher death rates of males, higher rates of criminal victimization, male targeting violence, male targeting hate in our media, education system and so on along with lots of other inconvenient empirical data might indicate a rational consideration of modern slavery in the context of unbalanced and one-sided legal duties and rights. Of course, that's not how it goes in the real world, there's deflection to other topics, accusation of misogyny, accusation of failure to be a real man and all manner of other dodging and distraction. But the fact remains that men have no reproductive rights, while being legally required to pay for the exercised reproductive rights of women. And this is slavery. Her body her choice falls apart when the platitude is stated in its complete form. Her body, her choice, his wallet, career, freedom, and children, also her choice.
I'll say it again, slavery, and it's an ugly word.
On what will seem at first to be another topic, in the last decade, we've witnessed the erasure of a substantial fraction of the legally protected civil rights itemized in the united states constitution. Specifically in the bill of rights.
First ammendment, freedom of speech - some will say its gone already. Ill say its nearly gone.
The stop online piracy act isn't really about piracy, its about shutting down, or controlling free expression on the most successful technological expression of free speech ever. The internet. You know the thing that makes this show possible, as well as avoiceformen.com – and your blog if you have one.
The right to keep and bear arms : enjoyed in most states, but in a culture of digital banking and digital identification, of increasingly little relevance in protecting the public against a government which recognizes no limit on its power.
No requirement to quarter soldiers : until last year, i would have said this was obsolete, now that NDAA has passed, I expect this to come under threat too.
The right to privacy, and potection from unjust search and seizure. The supreme court recently rules that putting a GPS tracking device on a car required a warrant, however, ill also mention full body scanners used by the TSA, pat downs, and the ongoing use of illigitemate wire-tapping against us citizens.
sixth amendment : The rights to a speedy trial. Nope, you can be detained indefinitely without trial.
The right to trial by jury. Except when the accusation is made by a woman over some matter of sexual impropriety. Then you can be tried and convicted by the employees and the students of a college or university, in an ideological court of kangaroos.
The protection of the 8th amendment against excessive bail or cruel punishment. But i guess torture isn't a punishment if it's done before a conviction is obtained.
And the 10th amendment which states quite clearly that powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.
Also, corporations, which due to the limitation of liability through incorporation are not accountable, although they enjoy the legal powers, rights and privileges of personhood.
Combine this with the fact that the democratic system of representative government is now expressed in trans-national corporations using elected representatives of the people as salesmen and facilitators to the profits of corporations and banks with exactly zero regard for direct or indirect damage done to people or communities in pursuit of that profit.
And remember always that the increasingly grotesque, blatant human rights violations pursued by gender feminists not only serve the agendas of banking elites, they're pursued through the same gang of bought and paid for politicians.
This requires no connecting of dots from shady speculation. Obama's attorney general published fraudulent stats to benefit corrupt domestic violence profiteers at the expense of further demonizing and marginalizing men.
Obama also authorized the transfer of trillions of dollars of the bad debts of bankers onto the public – and sold this great rip off by pretending it was to protect the public from those bankers bad decisions.
In case anybody wonders, Obama is just the latest salesman, Bush was the same, Clinton was the same before him, and so on.
Gender feminism is, by the way, not a grass roots social movement, it was funded and propelled in the 1960's and 70's by money from the Rockefeller. Gloria Steinem was dating henry Kissinger when she started ms magazine in 1969. This is not a conspiracy requiring tin foil headgear to follow, its right out in the open. The Rockefeller financing was told to documentary film producer Aaron Russo. One of the freely admitted purposes of feminism was the destruction of the family unit. You know, the building block of human societies for the last few hundred thousand years.
The feminist Linda Gordon said:
"The nuclear family must be destroyed... Whatever its ultimate meaning, the break-up of families now is an objectively revolutionary process."
Robin Morgan said:
"We can't destroy the inequities between men and women until we destroy marriage."
Throughout human history, men have been the protectors their families, and of society. However, now that they're increasingly except from participation in the privilege of having human rights, we see governments acting on behalf of corporations and bankers, and rapidly rendering legally protected humans rights for everyone a void relic of history. And the same elected officials are enacting the policies of 50 years of radical feminist pressure and lobbying, and acting on behalf of their corporate onwre, rather than the electorate which consists of actual human beings.
How stupid do we have to be, how willfully blind to fail to grasp what is going on.
The funny thing being, that if anyone uses that ugly, obsolete word, slavery, emotional driven, intellectually inattentive intellectuals will denounce the idea – condemn the speaker with accusation of trogloditic male privilege and fail totally to understand what is right in front of their eyes.
Oh look, jersey shore is on, pass the cheese covered wacky fries.
Slavery, they will say is a relic of history. One, which in it's recent american manifestation is currently being erased from the history books by elements of the american tea party.
The funny thing about slavery, is that when considered by any modern thinker ( using that word loosely), it's conceived of as something accomplished by brute force, with manacles, whips and chains and direct violence like beatings.
Whether we're talking about ancient rome, or more recent American history, slaved are best gaurded by other slaves. Free human beings dont keep other free human beings in violent bondage.
In a society using slaves, it is the slaves who wield the weapons. This is because using weapons is dangerous, it gets you killed and maimed to a much greater degree than deciding on the actions of other people from an oak panelled office.
It is prisoners are held in bondage with manacles and jail cells. Slaves on the other hand are manacled by control of their minds.
For example, controlling their minds by convincing them that despite higher male death rates, higher rates of criminal victimization, lower life expectancy, despite female favouring affirmative action in higher education – that what we live in is a patriarchy.
If you control their minds, then keeping them in manacles just slow them down when you need your slaves to silence anyone who speaks up in complaint.
