22. Feminists are literally trying to destroy the American family.This piece reminded me of another article on the Gates of Vienna blog called Visualize Industrial Collapse:
Peter Kreeft wrote a great book a few years ago called How to Win the Culture War. In the book, he argued that attacking marriage was essential for those who wished to radically transform (read: destroy) the foundations of our society. You can’t just tear down a whole society. You have to weaken individual communities. But that involves weakening families. And that, in turn, involves weakening marriages. And, for Kreeft, the best way to weaken marriages is to encourage adultery. This is easy to do when people begin to worship sex.
They envision a future that is “radically cooperative and communitarian, ecological and feminist, spontaneous and wild.” A primitivist society would be decentralized, egalitarian, and self-sufficient…Hoooooooooookay.
Feminist primitivists have argued that women, freed of gender constraints and the family structure, would not be defined by their reproductive capabilities as in patriarchal societies, and this would result in lowered population levels too. So population would be likely to fall, willy-nilly. [bolding mine]
Now the pieces are falling into place. The family must be destroyed.
So where did the feminist movement start? Betty "Professional Commie" Freidan.
Friedan's famous description of America's suburban family household as "a comfortable concentration camp" in The Feminine Mystique had more to do with her Marxist hatred for America than with any of her actual experience as a housewife or mother. She depicted herself disingenuously in her book as a suburban housewife who had never given any thought to the status of women in society until she attended the Smith College reunion. Yet Friedan was in fact no suburban housewife when she wrote those words; rather, she was a twenty-five-year veteran of professional journalism in the Communist Left,which promoted the idea that women were "oppressed." Friedan was familiar with the writings of Engels, Lenin, and Stalin on the subject, and had written about it herself as a journalist for the official publication of the IUE.And just who could be a more useful ally on the attack on the family unit than a Supreme Court justice?
Before becoming a judge, Ginsburg expressed her belief that traditional marriage laws are unconstitutional but that prostitution is a constitutional right. She also wrote that the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts are discriminatory institutions, and that courts must require the use of taxpayer funds to pay for abortions — hardly views Americans would consider mainstream. [bolding mine]I think Ms Ginsburg is punishing the country because she was penalized monetarily for being pregnant. In 1954. She is still punishing the rest of us for her decisions and her life experiences. From 50 years ago. Time to let that go, Ruth.
