A number of you have written (and commented) to tell me about an excellent post called “The Misandry Bubble” by the Futurist blog a href=”http://www.singularity2050.com/2010/01/the-misandry-bubble.html”which you can find here. /a The post is long but has a very good take on why American society is on the decline:br /br /blockquoteWhy does it seem that American society is in decline, that fairness and decorum are receding, that that socialism and tyranny are becoming malignant despite the majority of the public being averse to such philosophies, yet the true root cause seems elusive? What if everything from unsustainable health care and social security costs, to stagnant home prices and wage stagnation, to crumbling infrastructure and metastasizing socialism, to the utter decimation of major US cities like Detroit, Cleveland, and Pittsburgh, could all be traced to a common origin that is extremely pervasive yet is all but absent from the national dialog, indeed from the dialog of the entire Western world? ….br /br /Executive Summary : The Western World has quietly become a civilization that undervalues men and overvalues women, where the state forcibly transfers resources from men to women creating various perverse incentives for otherwise good women to conduct great evil against men and children, and where male nature is vilified but female nature is celebrated. This is unfair to both genders, and is a recipe for a rapid civilizational decline and displacement, the costs of which will ultimately be borne by a subsequent generation of innocent women, rather than men, as soon as 2020. /blockquotebr /br /I just read the whole thing. I suggest you do too. There are many gems of wisdom in this essay.
