Worrying and complaining are inherent human traits. Some cultures lean more to the worry side while others lean to the complainer side. Americans are hardcore worriers and complainers, something that you can perhaps trace back to the makeup of those who founded the country several hundred years ago. For whatever reasons you can come up with, we are naturals at both.
In many poor countries I’ve been to, the worries and complaints that I hear are usually tied to survival:
- “It’s hard to make money.”
- “I can’t afford to buy good things for myself.”
- “I’m scared of crime.”
- “Food is too expensive.”
- “My employer has not paid me in two months.”
Those in the third world spend most of their energy into merely eeking out a reasonable survival. They don’t get upset that their iPhone has lost internet connection because they don’t have an iPhone. They don’t stress out about traffic because they don’t have a car. I met a female engineer in Eastern Europe whose standard of living was lower than an IHOP waitress back in the States.
Americans don’t understand how high their standard of living is. A bus ride through the suburbs will provide evidence of this when you see urban youth who don’t even have full-time jobs sporting the latest smart phone technology and designer fashions. Only in America can “poor” people have what only rich people own in other countries.
Most Americans no longer concern themselves with matters of survival. While the current economic situation is changing that, I guarantee I don’t have a single reader who is not sure where he’s going to get his next meal. There is not much fear of being homeless or gunned down. Since you still have the human need to worry and complain, they will be centered around things that don’t necessarily improve your standard of living. You will never complain less in life, no matter how happy you are—you will only complain about other things that would seem absurdly trivial to someone who is struggling to survive. In the West, the process of addressing problems that are not in the radar of most people of the world—that are beyond the scope of basic human rights—is called “progress.”
American women, the most skilled worriers and complainers, are no longer concerned about survival. For the past few decades they have been able to focus all their energy into improving their gender’s power and status over men. They’ve achieved their goals because the powers-that-be indulged their demands for whatever reason (to gain money, pity sex, power, and so on). They are making more money than men, are more employed, are more educated, and even have the ability to destroy a man’s life with one false accusation.
But thankfully no more progress will be made for their cause. The American empire is struggling. More people are hungry, poor, and long-term unemployed. Americans are becoming more concerned with survival than fixing problems that don’t improve their standard of living. When everything was going smoothly, a feminist invention such as “sexual harassment” was a red alert emergency that changed policies and laws in a short amount of time. We put our energy into it because things were otherwise going well. But look at how the new feminist invention, “street harassment,” is slow to make progress. They’ve been at it for years, screaming about the “perverted” men who objectify women on the sidewalk with their cat calls, but it’s not getting mainstream support, just token recognition from law enforcement who say that “existing laws” can be used to combat it.
The truth is no one cares. Times are tough now and no one wants to put the required energy into indulging some overweight women who are faux offended when a Hispanic man whistles at them. Even Rush Limbaugh has not suffered any lasting consequences from calling a feminist a “slut” on radio. When Don Imus made similar comments a few years back, he immediately lost his job.
I won’t care that a commercial depicted girls as loving pink toys if I’m eating cans of beans and corn every day.
I won’t care if a pharmacy is giving girls a hard time about buying Plan B if I have no money.
I won’t care about some “rape culture” protest on a college campus if I’m already late on my rent.
In fact, I’m going to hate them for complaining about something so trivial when I’m broke and eating beans. I will say they are crazy and deluded.
Feminist progress is entirely dependent on a strong economy. A great example is Brazil, which is seeing incredible economic growth. With that, the feminists are achieving massive gains in power. For every GDP percentage that economy grows, I swear I see an uptick in hater comments on my older Brazilian writing. On some weeks, I get more feminist hate from Brazilian women than American.
While I would never wish for a country to struggle just so the feminists can’t make gains, the factors present in America, Brazil, and Scandinavia dictate that their economic success will equate to feminist success. This is not so in Colombia, Argentina, Eastern Europe, and countries in Asia. I don’t exactly know why this is, but I know that when America struggles, so will feminism.
Since our oligarchy is hellbent on sucking all the wealth out of this country through their wars and banking scams, that leaves only one outcome for the American brand of feminism: death. Within our lifetimes, without us doing a damn thing, it will lose significant power and strength. The feminism you know today will never get stronger as long as America gets weaker.[culturewar]
