By all means if a woman is career oriented, she should be allowed that choice. However, if she chooses career, it unfortunately takes precedence over the child. The village shouldn't be left to care for her child. Despite what has been fed us, it doesn't take a village to raise a child, it takes a mother and father who's willing to sacrifice...to raise a child.
 Quoting: Melrox


Sacrifice to what? The village?

Doth the village demands parental sacrifice to support the child, yet will not lift a finger itself?

I gesture again to my last post.
 Quoting: Obsequious Pachyderm
Sacrifice material wants. I personally don't want the village raising my children, it's full of idiots.
 Quoting: Melrox


You are correct, society is the collection and keeping of idiots.

Hypothetically, the Vatican supports the largest child-napping meme in human history, and as they sit around puffing their ceremonial pipes, women do the work of demons.

Now where could pedophilia fit into this.

So what if we patterned society and religion after the DMV.

If you are caught wandering around in your sins, you are immediately cast into hell. Unless you are in Oklahoma, in which case nothing changes.

Should you appeal to the throne of the DMV for clemency, they will act as if they have never heard of you before. It also behooves your God to turn a blind eye to the fact that you transported yourself to their presence regardless of their approval or not.

If so be that ye be honored to approach the Throne, perhaps with a State ID... (A Driver License is too much to ask), you will then be given a new name, in all Capital letters of the sacred language of Bureaucratic English.

You then get a nice economic raping from an angel with a strap-on, justified by the fact that it could have been Bubba in the County Jail, where you should really have gone for your sins... Since owning a car means you can make money with it, you should make money with it, and if not it will be taken from you. (The car, the money is leaving you either way...)

This will continue forever, because your God doesn't happen to hail from Heaven.

Women would live alone if they didn't need the money.

Equal pay would give the freedom to live alone and be happy.

If women get on top financially men would be put to the side like old toys.

The environment of political correctness - removed true leaders from government and industry - the lack of true leaders affects all of society. There are no strong masculine role models for young men. If all are perceived as equal - there is no differentiation to excel and model excellence. Combine this with no rule of law remaining (but exemptions for the elite) there is no incentive to take risk, reducing the incentive to innovate and take chances. A few break through this barrier – but fewer see the way or the possibilities of award.
Background of my avatar: [link to en.wikipedia.org]

The religion of submission cannot survive an open and honest discussion of its convoluted and foolish scriptures, its sexually perverted terrorist prophet, or its deceitful and demented god. When Western leaders become unified and resolute in their hostility to Islam's violent and ungodly beginnings, Muslims will flee the religion because they will be horrified by its endorsement of terrorism, mass murder, slave trading, plunder, kidnapping, and rape.

If Muslims & their apologists really want to cure "Islamophobia," here is an easy way. Focus their indignation on Muslims committing violent acts in the name of Islam, not on non-Muslims reporting on those acts.

The schizo reference is in the fact that when it comes to responsibility among corporate entities, it is usually presumably split between opposing factions of approximating age.

A bicameral institution.

There are a number of Earth institutions that hail from this Gregorian standpoint of the birth of Jesus, or the religious standpoint of his life's story.

Between this convenient impasse, we collectively watch the world drown in indecision. Around a singular figure.

How about a severely flawed education system
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 1043775


A society which says everyone should go to college, even though everyone clearly shouldn't go to college, and then these people who would in other generations be unskilled laborers or factory workers now have college degrees and have been duped into believing they're too good for hard work, but they aren't smart enough for the few white collar jobs available, so they move back home and play video games while waiting for a six figure job offer which will never materialize. When they turn 40 and realize half their life has passed them by, they won't be qualified even for unskilled labor and they will either mooch off mom and dad until they are dead or they will die in the streets.

I will, however, say this. I am glad I came up in the 80's when there was still abundant hope for the future. I was motivated to do well in school, I went to college and law school and am now a successful attorney with a great law practice. At this stage, however, I see no future for the economy or people of the United States. My law practice is exclusively bankruptcy, and so that is why I am so successful right now, and will be for as long as it takes this economy to unwind and crash. If I were a college student today, I might be tempted to move home and play video games too. There just seems to be no hope for anyone starting out today. Once the economy is done crashing and unraveling and I have no more work, I will likely take my family and what fortune I have managed to accumulate and move to South America or someplace where I can live off what I have saved, and where my kids might have a future.

I will, however, say this. I am glad I came up in the 80's when there was still abundant hope for the future. I was motivated to do well in school, I went to college and law school and am now a successful attorney with a great law practice. At this stage, however, I see no future for the economy or people of the United States. My law practice is exclusively bankruptcy, and so that is why I am so successful right now, and will be for as long as it takes this economy to unwind and crash. If I were a college student today, I might be tempted to move home and play video games too. There just seems to be no hope for anyone starting out today. Once the economy is done crashing and unraveling and I have no more work, I will likely take my family and what fortune I have managed to accumulate and move to South America or someplace where I can live off what I have saved, and where my kids might have a future.

Re: Why are there so many "failure-to-Launch Young Men" .. . .? . . .select the most likely reason . ..
The environment of political correctness - removed true leaders from government and industry - the lack of true leaders affects all of society. There are no strong masculine role models for young men. If all are perceived as equal - there is no differentiation to excel and model excellence. Combine this with no rule of law remaining (but exemptions for the elite) there is no incentive to take risk, reducing the incentive to innovate and take chances. A few break through this barrier – but fewer see the way or the possibilities of award.

So if the hill is too high. . . few will try to climb it. . . then why are the women charging the hill and the men watching???peace
 Quoting: George B


Because all are considered equal - there is no difference - mediocrity is considered the goal. Exceptionalism, of men or women is not expected nor desired.

That still does not explain women's greater desire to succeed while men are satisfied to observe. . . .
 Quoting: George B


Can you imagine going to a waterpark where you never have to climb stairs?

At the end of every slide, another slide awaiting you?

That's this world and women.



Now imagine one where you have to climb twice for yourself, and once for the woman beside you.

That's this world and men.


Of course, I could also just say that in the real scheme of things, women are short-sighted, and fully capable of running a civilization into the ground over the course of only a few generations.

But that might ruin the fun.

If you look at it and you know you can do it, then meh.

Watch those who see it as a challenge try.

Those who can do, those who can't teach. Those who teach not to do, know better.

I'd rather think myself brave and be wrong, than mediocre and be right.
