With the continuing attack on men in our society by feminists of all sexes exemplified by the desire for Byron Shire councillor and aspiring ALP candidate Paul Spooner to see more men sent to jail for infractions against AVOs, it is time to outline some balance.
Feminism has destroyed the family. It has undermined men’s authority over their children and is producing a fatherless society where single-parent families, usually dominated by women, are becoming the norm.
What kind of society allows this tragedy to happen? One that bases its value on people as units of production and consumption while cheapening life and morality and making the state the arbiter of human behaviour.
Everywhere you look you see the good little units playing with their iPhones and other gadgets, alienating themselves from others except through text media. We have bred a generation of techno zombies, out of touch with reality and their emotions and each other, other than on the most superficial levels.
And most of this behaviour can be attributed to a breakdown in the roles between men and women in society. We see women confused about their roles and men equally so with the ultimate result being family breakdowns and child-father alienation – with the bitterness and hate that involves creating a cycle of conflict and heartbreak for all involved.
The left may think that global warming and the environment are the two major problems we face but an even worse one is the destruction by feminists of the very fabric of our society. The disempowering of men makes them angry and anger produces violence, so to lay all the responsibility and onus on men to control their behaviour simply reinforces the childlike approach so many women have to relationships, wherein if it gets too hard they bail out leaving a trail of heartbreak and destruction in their wake for the state to clean up.
As it is, our society has now been so fully feminsied that they are then afforded every possible support and comfort while the men are usually left to languish and flounder in a sea of emotion and financial hardship in many cases leading to suicide.
For Cr Spooner to propose making the law even more punitive for men is typical of the fascist approach to solving problems, which has become increasingly the norm in western society and it is counterproductive and dangerous because it simply gives the wrong message to both parties associated with family breakdowns. It has also spawned the term ‘femonazi’.
It is interesting to see that the family counselling service set up by Kevin Andrews has had little success and is indicative of the deep seated malaise that lies at the very core of our society. I doubt people like Cr Spooner have the insight and expertise to fix any of these problems in the foreseeable future and neither do the feminists who he listens to.
