I live and work in the UK, am a physically fit man in his mid thirties currently studying at University. Like most men I have dated on and off for the past 20 years or so and from my experiences I have come to realize as no doubt many of you have that there is a deep sickness in our society in regards to how men are treated. With growing divorce rates, fatherless children and a consistent refusal from Feminists to recognize or rectify men’s growing concerns it is time men changed their approach. It was difficult for me to come to this conclusion given what I consider a family oriented upbringing, certainly my parents are still married after 40+ years and happily so. However as Ayn Rand once said:
“I’m challenging the moral code of altruism, the precept that man’s moral duty is to lead for others, that men must sacrifice himself to others which is the present day morality”
I am not a capitalist nor a socialist nor I hope do I fall on the fence, a place I imagine should feel pointedly uncomfortable to any but a coward. I do however believe, despite my traditionalist upbringings that marriage has become a sham, whatever you might think it was in the past today it is nothing more than usury of men and I believe that is a fact that will not change. With a 50 billion dollar divorce industry, sex sold as some sort of priceless resource and victim hood sold to a nanny state as the only valid form of currency it is evident that Men must protect their independence and freedom more vigilantly than ever.
The price for men failing to see what is essentially a fairy tale lie is higher than it has ever been. That price is paid to governments and businesses who profit from the misery of destroyed families, with tax rates and laws that only ever increase. It is paid to greedy women and feminists who demand one sided equality while forcing men to shoulder responsibilities that now have few of the inherent rights associated with them. Among men’s issues that are continually ignored by feminists are false rape allegation, unequal punishment(including the rationalisation of female crimes such as intimate partner violence and paeophilia), homelessness, workplace deaths and a suicide rate 4 times higher for men. Feminist lies permeate everywhere from the destruction of Masculine Roles to the ignorance of sex differences in medicine and tax funded educational programs that marginalize men and glorify women – all wrapped up in the fictitious, fear monger statistics they are so fond of peddling. My aim here (as with many MHRM sites) is to provide you with real statistics and objective fact, backed up by peer reviewed scientific data, legal precedent and hopefully in time some positive advice for men going their own way.
There are of course still men who swallow the lies of feminism, believing in their genuine need for acceptance, love and duty that chivalry, romance and heroism are still more valued than servitude, financial slavery and obligation. Such men are moved by generations of shame for failing to live up to women’s and societies ever increasing petulant demand for them to be seen as failures for being anything less than humiliated and debased beyond human empathy and consideration. These are the so called ‘dead beat dads, ‘good men’ and ‘beta males’ perpetually shamed for their desire to find happiness and be seen as human beings. Such men are often so afraid and trapped that as Morpheus said in the movie ‘The Matrix’
……”they are part of the system and will fight to defend it”.
They are the white knights and self appointed hero’s who still believe that galloping to a woman’s defence is the same kind of heroism as rescuing a child from a burning building…a job which of course they were – according to feminists – only granted by their gender and not a man’s need to protect and love, nor his ability and inclination to do so.
Many Men have slowly begun to recognize what is being done to them. Already in the western world we have divorce rates approaching if not surpassing 40-50% and in one case(Sweden) rising above 55%. Men are waking up to the fact that they deserve the rights that go with the responsibilities they have been shouldered with. In many cases men have unburdened themselves from such responsibilities and rightly so(the Japanese ‘herbivore’ movement being one such example). No group nor government however will give up power willingly and it is apparent that regardless if Feminism and it’s ideals are something women collectively support they have willingly reaped it’s benefits at the expense of men and often with their help.
Only when the death toll in war is equal between men and women, when equality of opportunity in the work force is demanded not just in high paying executive jobs, but in low paying dangerous ones will we see the price for feminine greed. This is however what I see as an unlikely outcome as the so called ‘war of the sexes’ is nothing of the kind. For decades those who believed in traditionalism have placed women upon a pedestal where lack of responsibility(the draft being one example) is seen as a birthright. Against this background feminists have equally campaigned for rights without responsibilities, again as a birthright. It is likely inevitable that we are headed in a direction that will be marked with poverty, evil and hate, much of it to be lain at the feet of such ideologues and fanatical ‘victims’. There are however now a large and active number of men’s groups and we are slowly changing things. In my opinion ‘Going Galt’ is not a departure from intimacy nor the idea of family but a stand that men must take if we are to finally put an end to feminism – a hateful and insidious movement that has as Erin Pizzey said become an ‘Evil Empire’. If, like me you deeply care about the right to have a family and stand up for your rights whether you are a man or woman then there is only one question you need to ask yourself..
What are you going to do about it?.
