17:02 to 20:05 Dr. Peterson talks about police in Britain arresting people for being “offensive”….how shocked he is, at this. Dr. Peterson says Canada was still a part of the British Empire, when he grew up, with “tight affinity” between Canadian culture and British culture. But what was the British Culture he grew up with? Patriarchy. That’s why he is so shocked that people all over the Western world……are afraid to speak their minds……. What he fails to mention: This is the beginning of The Matriarchy. That’s what is going on…..It’s not men who are doing this, it’s women. Men don’t care about your feelings being hurt by speech. It’s usually women who do. This is Matriarchy. There is such a thing as male tyranny, and we have seen it in the past. But this is a new thing: Female tyranny. Matriarchal tendencies are the same tendencies women display in the average home: they wish to control the social flow of the home, and police it’s speech. This is natural to women and actually quite beneficial to society, when it stays within the home.
That’s not what happened.
In the home, there is a tight emotional bond between a man and a woman, there is a social exchange, so a man is inclined to make nice with his wife, emotionally. But when women enter the work world, they bring those same evolved social inclinations to make the men around them act nice. Trouble is, there is no reason for the men around her, to be nice to her in the way he might be to his wife, since there is not natural bond of family, with all the women at work. That doesn’t stop the woman from trying to be the emotional police to every man within her vicinity. The Matriarchy strangles men with emotional control and manipulation, and expectation to be treated in a certain way that takes into account a woman’s sensitivities. And from a man’s point of view, this is insane, unfair, unnatural, and not worth it. The man only does this social deference for his wife, because he gets something back. At work, it’s not natural, but most women expect it. Most women at work and university wants to be the emotional boss of every man, and treat him as a wife treats her husband or brother, and expects every man to show her the same social deference that a girlfriend or wife would be treated with, in a nice upper middle class home. Why? Vagina. This is an insane social situation, for men. That’s partly why they are leaving university, leaving the world of work.
Protecting women is a natural evolved instinct in men, but there must be some sort of payoff for it to function. That’s why past societies have rewarded men for protecting women. We rewarded men, gave them social status, when men did things to protect women. Like when the men fought opposing armies to protect society, it meant protecting women and children, so when men did that, we rewarded their valor and gave them social recognition and respect….ribbons, medals, parades in times of war. Avoiding saying things that are “offensive” to a woman, is a form of protection, now required of males. Trouble is, this new feminist male-female social transaction is emotionally unbalanced and will never work out, because there is no social pay for it, not even social pay in the form of respect for men. Now, feminists have taken away the social respect for men, but still expect men to be deferential to women, and protect them….while women get to boss them around. Social relations between the genders are a two sided weigh scale, and this is out of balance to the point of absurdity.
And to make this social imbalance even worse for men, women can be above him, in the social work hierarchy. This means he is expected to show deference, to someone above him, in social status. She gets to boss him around, while he walks around all day on eggshells hoping not to offend her. Hoping not to offend her, is basically saying a man is trying to protect her. So that means men are supposed to protect, those who have power over them. And this is quite different than a man showing social deference to a male boss, because a man has no protective instincts towards a male boss, which he would have towards a female around him. This new social arrangement feels totally fake, totally unnatural. Where’s the payoff for a man? There is none. The payoff is all to the woman. This is completely unfair and not workable, long term. This social dynamic is not functional, not healthy, but it’s what generally companies are turning into, thanks to feminist pressure. Everything is now about being nice to women.
Suppression of free speech over things like the impact of free speech on women’s emotional state of mind, is part of a larger trend. When women got the vote, got educated and went to work, they slowly are taking over political power in society at large and in the work place, so now female sensitivities rule…. and women are quite different than men….and there’s your problem. The tentative steps we are taking towards being a Matriarchy show this new social structure is much different than The Patriarchy. That’s why free speech is now suppressed on campus…..free speech may be something that women in general, are just not as naturally inclined to think is important, as do men. And what takes place on campus is coming to society in a few years. Get ready. It’s coming to an office or company, near you…if it hasn’t already arrived. The feminist police are on the march. Women want safe spaces, and tones changed to conform to their delicate nature. It’s the same in all large companies now. A complete nightmare of estrogen. Just watch the video on men leaving the workplace, link below, read the comments section, by men. Conclusion? This is not going to work. We were meant to be a Benevolent Patriarchy…..we evolved for that. We did not evolve for women having the political power to run society, and to run men around, outside the home. This will fail. It’s happening all around us. No successful society has ever been a Matriarchy.
Guess why? It doesn’t work….for a bunch of reasons.
Evolution doesn’t want this.
Every human society in all of recorded history, they separated the sexes into 2 separate spheres, more or less. Women concentrated on family and child care, for pretty much all our evolution, and men ran the world. That’s Patriarchy. It’s normal and natural. And that was essential to human survival because women have children, when they are young. The survival of the group depended on the separation of genders. Since women have a very short window in which to have children, and they usually didn’t live long, women in the past had children when they were young, created a separate social sphere of women and children, separate from men. This was biologically functional and kept society stable. It meant women did not generally compete for social and economic status, with men. We have no way to integrate male and female power hierarchies, because we have never done it before, because nature never wanted it. Nature wanted women to keep separate from men and have children when they are young. Now we think we will allow women to compete with men, in the same spheres, and keep society stable? That won’t work.
Was giving women the vote a big mistake? Was Democracy might a big mistake? Now women have given up having a family, they all want to “have a career” and “be fulfilled” and have group hugs at work, and send supportive notes to each other….but now we don’t as a society, even make enough human beings as a society to reproduce our populations, so we import people, to make up for all our abortions or children who were never born. Feminism told women to prioritize career over family, and that’s what happens.
Let’s look at the evidence: Only the top 30% of men and women get married, and women only marry the top men for their money. The bottom 70% isn’t even getting married. We have gay marriage, but no marriage for the bottom 70% of straights. Dave Rubin can get married, but maybe not Joe the Plumber. Is this a sane way to organize a society that wants to survive into the future? No. We are coming unglued.
In this new feminist society, we still expect men to be there for women, often for the family they won’t have…..see “low birth rate” and “demographic winter”….on you-tube. Men still are expected to slave at work, keep society going, for the benefit of women. Men earn 70% of all money, women spend 70% of all money….. Men just slave, to keep women happy, women are the consumers, men are the slave drone producers who can live on little….the main reason men work hard, it to keep women happy, and that no longer works. Female happiness is in long term decline, there is lots of evidence for that.
Exactly at the time 2nd Wave feminism came in, in the 1970s, female happiness started to decline, and has continued to decline, and is still declining now, nearly half a century later. At the time of 2nd Wave feminism, women gave up concentrating on family, and instead listened to the feminists, made work and education their top priority. And my guess is, this choice of career and school in their 20s, over family, is the very thing that made women miserable. Feminists ruined women’s lives. Feminists ruined women’s happiness. The truth is simple: Women evolved to have children in their 20s, not to compete with men, for power in their 20s. But women made a mistake and listened to the feminists, and now they are miserable and society is collapsing.
Our whole economy is just based on men working hard to produce things for women. Then if a man is successful enough, she finds him attractive and says yes. Is this worth it to you?
This new world of men and women working together, is pretty precarious for men. At work, men have to compete with women. But if they compete too hard and win, they are considered jerks by women, who get rid of them via Human Resources Department, and knife him in the back, on a false allegation. On the other hand, if men don’t compete hard enough, they are not dating material….so it’s a lose-lose situation for men. And every man’s career can be destroyed on the word of any one woman. Don’t forget, men, we must “Believe all women!”…..The feminists went after a Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh recently, almost took him out. If such a high level man can be attacked, so can any man. So can you. And of course there has been a non stop 2 year assault on the American President, by feminists. If they come after these men, you’re next. Joe the Plumber is a sitting duck, but so is Joe the Accountant. No man is safe from attack, from loony left wing feminists. That’s why men are leaving the work force, and leaving universities. It’s not worth it. Women are not worth, this kind of headache.
My guess: This won’t work. This new Matriarchy won’t work….. life wasn’t meant to be this way, with women ruling and men kowtowing to women. Part of the problem is an evolutionary conflict: Women evolved to be more group oriented than men. Women really do, see themselves as part of a group as their primary identity. This makes sense as women were more vulnerable in evolution, smaller and physically weaker and had to be protected…as a group, by men who made individual sacrifices to protect women and children. That basic biological narrative tends to bring out in the female human a sense of social solidarity to others who share their biological characteristics, but with little sympathy for those who don’t. Perhaps that’s why females don’t seem to be upset that 99% of the homeless are men, but they get upset if dogs or children suffer. This female view of reality is now contending with the more traditionally male view, based more on the individual. The left gets most of it’s votes, from women. The left tends to emphasize the collective, the responsibility that the group has, to protect “the vulnerable”….meaning women and children must be protected by men. The right gets most of it’s votes, from men and the right tends to emphasize authority, meaning male authority, over emotional “feelies”….There is a lot of overlap in voting patterns, but overall that’s true. So when Dr. Peterson talks about the individual being the right level of analysis, he is talking about a male way of looking at the world….restoring the Patriarchy, or some element of the male conception of life….which has been, till now, the basis of Western civilization. Which will be dominant in the long run? I have no idea, but if evolution is any guide, our new feminist Matriarchy won’t work….so Patriarchy will win in the end, as it always has.
….so in Britain, is the thin edge of the knife, of feminism. It controls and suppresses free speech. Feminists won’t win. Their whole philosophy works against nature and evolution. Men don’t want to walk around on eggshells all day, and be governed by every woman judging if he is “offensive” or not. And advanced civilization can’t continue with the destruction of marriage that feminist brought, and the demographic collapse that feminism brought. It will ruin us, in the end, if we let it. And we won’t let it. So thoughtful people….men and women….will eventually react. Eventually people will figure that out, and modify the insanity of the feminists. Advanced civilization was brought to you, by a Benevolent Patriarchy.
As Camille Paglia put it, “If it were up to women, we’d still be living in grass huts”.
The whole of science came about out of male instincts of free thought, free speech. We can’t run a culture without free speech and the female inclination is to suppress free speech. We can already see, that doesn’t work. If women wish to run civilization, I say let them. The sooner they take control, as they are, and crash our civilization, which they are doing, the sooner we can put this Matriarchy mess behind us, and get back to a Benevolent Patriarchy.
I think Camille realizes there are biological differences between the genders and it was the strengths of the male of the species, that brought about the Modern world. A Benevolent Patriarchy is good. Matriarchy will never work.
Fight back, if you don’t like it. The only question I have is, will we crash and burn as a civilization, before we correct this insanity? I have no idea, but correct it, we will.
END OF RANT…..
