Jordan Peterson: “The rise of a victim/victimizer culture…The domination of the intellectual discourse in the universities by the left and the radical left….they are causing a certain amount of trouble, like the rise of the excessive safety culture….What in the world do we do about it?”
First, we have to accurately diagnose, where it is coming from, before we speculate, what to do about it. My answer: It comes from evolution and our peculiar social arrangements. I mean it comes from the evolved nature of women, including when they evolved to have children, what the social arrangements between men and women were in the past, and why so. And how our new social arrangements are counter-evolutionary.
To start thinking about this, ask yourself: Why do young women often vote Democrat? Women tend to vote liberal, a lot more than men do. Women are the ones who tend to get involved in SJW activity, not men. Why is that? A parallel question: Why do women vote for big government so often…they vote Democrat… especially young liberal women?
My answer: First, how many? 80% of women in their 20s vote left-leaning. As to WHY they do that, here’s my take:
Although I’m a religious person, I believe in God, I also believe in evolution. The universe and the laws of evolution were created by God.
Women evolved to have children when they are young….in their 20s, basically. That’s our evolutionary history. It’s built right into the biological clock of women, which is set to have them have children when they are young, and which stops around age 35….”The Wall”….For all of our evolution, till now, till the invention of the modern world, the life-plan of women was to be a Mother when they were young. This is the only thing that makes evolutionary sense, to keep life going. This is woven right into the DNA of women, it’s natural, it’s good. As Genesis puts it: “And God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.”….KJV
Our current dominant feminist narrative, of prioritizing education over human life, is very counter-evolutionary. By historical standards and norms, having vast armies of unwed women, with no children, out competing with men for power….that arrangement has no historical precedent….and for good reason.
As to liberal SJW women, where they came from, what happened is that men invented the modern world, very recently….science, technology…..starting around 1895, as Jordan Peterson has pointed out in other videos. This created a new world, very different from the past. A new counter-evolutionary world, where women could use birth control, avoid family in their 20s….go to work, vote and avoid family. Then the social cancer of feminism arose, encouraging women to do that.
The feminist/SJW pink haired social justice culture at university is symptom of a society out of whack with evolutionary norms. That’s where the victim/victimizer culture comes from. That’s where the intellectual domination of public discourse at university comes from. Women have maternal instincts, to care for the vulnerable. Modern life deflects and suppresses those healthy instincts. But those instincts find a way, they really can’t be suppressed forever. They are changed, mis-directed, become malformed, but look past the madness, you will see that SJW instincts are actually based on healthy, life-encouraging instincts. They are just mis-directed by modern life.
The fundamental biological fact remains: Women in their 20s evolved to have families when they are young, not to work full time at a job. Not to stick their nose in a book for ten years at school. They evolved to depend on men, to have men protect and take care of them, while they have children…..all these are good things.
But when we gave women the vote, they voted in BIG GOVERNMENT. Women vote liberal/Democrat more often than men, because women evolved to be taken care of. Democrats understand this instinctively. Democrats promise them lots of free stuff and that appeals to women’s instincts to be taken care of. So a lot of women latch onto their errant destructive feminist/SJW philosophy. And that’s why socially destructive women liberal women are here, causing so much trouble.
So….how to deal with them? Well, first we must recognize that the source of women voting liberal, is they want to be taken care of. They are born to have children. That’s natural. That’s good. That’s a good instinct actually, it’s just misdirected. We need to re-direct that good instinct in women, to something more healthy, more Godly, more life-enhancing for them.
You ever notice how liberal women…Social Justice Warriors… are always going on and on endlessly about this injustice and that injustice? How they are always going on about vulnerable people?….crying about vulnerable people, talking about caring for them???….That’s because women evolved to care for young life. That’s a good instinct, only modern life misdirects that impulse in women.
That’s where the excessive safety culture on campus arises from: a very healthy female instinct to care for the vulnerable. Most young women at university don’t have children, so they have no proper channel for that instinct, so they invent one. They go looking for the vulnerable. Feminism gives them a theory about the vulnerable in society, as does post-modernism. Same with the victim/victimized complex. It arises out of evolved female tendencies to care for the vulnerable. The troika of post-modernism and feminism and Marxism are all intellectual garbage, but at an emotional level, are quite appealing….especially to women. They all play directly into evolved female tendencies to protect the young and vulnerable.
Many of the SJWs have no children when they are young, so the natural female protective tendencies for protecting life, they get directed elsewhere….they go looking for vulnerable people to protect….thus the SJW insanity at university.
How to make things better for women:
We must recognize feminism was completely wrong:
Nature and evolution and most important God, set up life so that women should concentrate on having children, when they are young….not having a “job”. Not having “an education”….which often is just Women’s Studies, where they learn to hate men. That’s just an education in hatred. Feminism is generally just hate speech, against men. We need a new conservative social order, to combat the plague of liberalism/SJW culture.
The answer is conservative, in a new way.
Conservatives must push for a society where all women can be taken care of in a family situation, by a husband, if that is their choice. That means strengthening the ability of men, to buy a house and look after a woman who wants to have children. Women only get married, if the man earns more than them and can take care of them. Then they find men attractive. By strengthening the social position of men, women will find them attractive and marry them. Dr. Peterson has many videos on the hyper-gamous nature of women. This must be taken into account, in setting up social order and economic rules of society.
The modern idea of women and men being economically “equal” is absurd. Women don’t find men attractive when men are beneath them or equal to them. The idea of “equality”, it goes against nature and religion. We need a new society, based on both evolution and more importantly, religion. As it happens, evolutionary knowledge and Biblical knowledge, pretty much agree on many things. Dr. Jordan Peterson has pointed out the similarities, many times. So, what to do with liberal/Democratic/feminist women? They should be pregnant and having children in their 20s. Not going to university and causing trouble.
