Remember that if someone who profits from your labor tells you something, you should distrust it. Although you donâ€™t know it, your brain is already pre-programmed with the exception that allows them to manipulate you: freedom.
Freedom is a political concept. You cannot find it in nature. Instead, it is a term we use to describe our state of mind, and then we attempt to impose that term upon the world. But â€œfreedomâ€ is like many things used to control you. You are, in fact, its bitch.
Being something or someoneâ€™s bitch is defined by two attributes:
Itâ€™s like an addiction. Your job sucks, the city is violent and ugly, people are stupid, and thereâ€™s no purpose to your society. But you cling to it like a tit because youâ€™re afraid of losing your â€œfreedom.â€ In fact, for most people, â€œfreedomâ€ is the only reason they can give for putting up with it.
Thatâ€™s what itâ€™s like to be someoneâ€™s bitch. They hurt you, and you love it, and you come back mewling and crying and begging for more.
The Menâ€™s Rights Movement (MRM) tells you that you can avoid being feminismâ€™s bitch by engaging in typical Menâ€™s Rights Activist (MRA) activities, namely sleeping with neurotic girls, spending money on yourself, and avoiding adulthood (which you will refer to disparagingly as â€œmanning upâ€).
Then again, youâ€™d have to be wholly brain dead to think that those who profit from you have not thought of this.
If you want to make money from your workers, you can outright enslave them â€” but then youâ€™re responsible for their welfare. Itâ€™s better to make them â€œfreeâ€ and force them to take care of themselves, but to tighten the reins around them by also making them crazed for entertainment, pleasure and escape.
Our society excels at manipulating with these carrots. It does it through a method known in every American precinct. Bad Cop tells you about something horrible heâ€™s going to do to you; Good Cop offers an alternative. You choose that. Good â€” thatâ€™s what they wanted you to do, all along. The threat was always empty.
You could be living in 1950â€²s America. You would get married young, have a devoted partner and lover your whole life, and have twice the salary (in real value) since only half as many people would be working. You could have a functional family instead of living alone in your apartment.
There was a real reason to grow up then: life got better. You had stuff to look forward to. Now, youâ€™re stranded in perpetual adolescence because you donâ€™t want to give in and become like the rest of them. Yet by doing exactly what you want, and abandoning any hope of anything greater, you are like the rest of them.
The 1950â€²s innocence was actually an impediment to government and big business having power. Happy stable people donâ€™t need a whole lot of products. They donâ€™t need a political system that creates constant drama. The best worker is destabilized, neurotic, single, bored and spiritually empty. They need their jobs to distract from their pointless lives.
Society has a long history of such subterfuges. The British navy was known for â€œrum, sodomy and the lashâ€ for its habit of bribing miserable sailors with alcohol. Most cool jobs where you can smoke dope or drink at lunch actually pay a lot less than jobs that do not. School rewards you with proms and awards for four years of slavery.
If you think about it for a moment, your concepts of freedom come from movies, books and television. Those in turn are owned by people with a vested interest in keeping you obedient. Many are direct borrowings of propaganda issued by the government. These people make money from keeping you inert. Do you trust them?
Nearly two-thirds of children in the United States are born to mothers under 30â€¦One group still largely resists the trend: college graduates, who overwhelmingly marry before having children. That is turning family structure into a new class divide, with the economic and social rewards of marriage increasingly reserved for people with the most education.
â€œMarriage has become a luxury good,â€ said Frank Furstenberg, a sociologist at the University of Pennsylvania. â€“ â€œFor Women Under 30, Most Births Occur Outside Marriage,â€ by JASON DePARLE and SABRINA TAVERNISE, The New York Times, February 17, 2012
Whatâ€™s the real value here? Stable marriages, or lots of cheesy poon, retro video gaming, cheap pot, cheap beer, dubstep and massive credit card debt?
If you donâ€™t own control of your own life, youâ€™re someoneâ€™s bitch. Even if you escape what you fear, youâ€™re still in servitude to your lack of ability to think of something better. Whether thatâ€™s working a wage-slave job instead of owning a business, nailing airheads instead of having a family, or simply not being master of your own time, youâ€™re a slave who thinks heâ€™s free.
MRAs like to think theyâ€™re fighting back against feminism. In fact what theyâ€™ve done is invent feminism for men, which produces the exact same broken results that feminism for women did. Instead of relationships, we manipulate each other and hate each other. You never get love or family.
But go ahead, accept second best. You gained a symbolic victory, even if youâ€™re someoneâ€™s bitch. If you think you win over feminism that way, then reality just must be as the symbols say it is. After all, employers and big governments never lie. You have your â€œfreedomâ€ after all.
