These past 40 years are the years of feminist propaganda and its censorship powers managed by the American Democrat Party and its allies at university and throughout American media.
Outside of delivering the human body in its infancy, nearly everything created, invented, developed, built, modified, and even thought of has been performed almost exclusively by the human male throughout this particular species history.
Refinements, the polishing, the disseminating and use of what has been male created, with all of the sensitivities which satisfy some taste or another move more toward the female or the ‘sensitive’ male.
I wonder if anyone these days in the western world has heard of ‘testosterone’. The drive on this planet is still determined by the human MALE……Gloria Steinem and Betty Friedan notwithstanding.
Nearly all of male failure, whatever the description of male failure in societymay be, arrives from his inability to find himself compatible with his genetic determination to ‘make a difference’ in the culture.
He is unable to find his station of influence which could be defined as success. Male critics would call it negatively as the male ego……and they are right if they would forego the sneers. Male harmony with himself is often his battle from puberty to death. The lucky in modern society are those whose ego is in balance with accomplishment, with accomplishment the primary driver over ego.
Such harmony is bestowed these days upon a very lucky human male, since there are so many harpies of both sexes in Obama’s Democrat Party which insist nothing really is invented or created without the domination of the masses. It is their policy to denegrate human male success.
They have found a very successful man on nearly every count, Mitt Romney, to show their fangs and sound their growls, snipings, their lies, their Harpy natures, led by Barack Obama and Harry Reid.
According to the Obama camp in the White House and at university,Marxist equality must be served. Nothing may be recognized as individually achieved without homage to the government’s highway masses.
Despite the years of leftwing feminist lunacy and its propaganda permeating throughout western education, not much has changed during the past three decades of lunatic female rebellion against science and common sense.
The evidence is overwhelming. Steve Jobs was NOT Stephanie Jobs. While amidst its bureaucracies, the human at work performs equally obediently whether for good or bad.
The following observation by Charles Murray of David Brooks, is a conversation among males, not females. It is one which cannot occur in public among Obama leftists, for Obama himself is not a problem solver, not an inventor or a creator of substance. He possesses his ego, but is void of these male solving and building traits and most appropriately represents the harpies demanding their rewards from those in America who indeed have built, invented, created, and added material wealth, knowledge, and expanding abilities to our culture since its founding.
Mr. Obama is the first feminized American president; our first Harpy in the White House. He was morphed at university and by fatherlessness.
David Brooks has delivered his take on the “you didn’t build that” conversation with this as his thesis: As a practical matter, it is useful for young people on their way up to think that their future success is up to them. But as we reach old age, we understand how little we have accomplished independently of all the forces acting on our lives.
But I have the advantage actually being old, whereas David is, through no fault of his own, still a whippersnapper. So I am in a position to correct him. As you get to be a codger, David, you will actually be able to see more and more clearly what has been a matter of luck and what you can legitimately take credit for, and the latter will give you a great deal of satisfaction.
At least that’s the way it has worked out for me. I understand completely that talent is pure luck of the draw. For example, I will never, ever, be able to come up with a sentence as acute and witty as this: “Ambition, like promiscuity, is most pleasant when experienced vicariously.” It’s one of half a dozen such bon mots in this column alone, and they are possible only because of the bundle of skills that David Brooks is lucky enough to possess and he did nothing to deserve.
But what makes those sentences possible for him to write does not make them come into existence. And that is the basis for the credit that people can legitimately take in their own achievements. Speaking for myself, I know that some of the things I have written were easy for me, because of the bundle of skills I was given, and they are no big deal to me. I also recognize that other things I have written took enormous effort. They exist because of continuing acts of will on my part, sometimes extending over long periods of time. Those give me increasing satisfaction as I grow older, not less. I am proud of my younger self—at a remove, as if I were thinking about another person; almost the same way that I am proud of my children.
Continuing acts of will are associated with every kind of major success, including those that arise from family, community, and faith. They also are associated with major success in business, the law, the sciences, or the arts. That’s why studies of greatness in all of those fields have one finding in common: The greats in all of those fields worked incredibly hard. See Human Accomplishment for details.
At this point, dreary people will try to push us into the “Oh, but your ability to make those acts of will was because of factors over which you have no control” line of argument. But that argument works only theoretically. We certainly know that other forces have made a big difference, but as we get older we have a pretty good sense of what they have been (in my case, my wife standing above all others). But we all know from our inner history the many times that we had the choice to exert an act of will and failed to do so along with the times that we did. We experience in our hearts the reality of free will. Knowing that, it’s okay to take credit for the times we sucked it up and did the right thing. Those things, we built.
Further comment: “Oh, but your ability to make those acts of will was because of factors over which you have no control” line of argument”, is Obama’s and Elizabeth Warren’s Harpy language to fit their Marxist religion to enforce equality……representing thousands of Democrat-Harpies like them running for political office this November, 2012.
