NOTABLE QUOTES

Donald Trump current frontrunner in the Republican presidential primary: “The fight between Israel and Hamas is between civilization and savagery, between good and evil. There is no comparison between a group that worships death and a group that cherishes life. Every single life lost in this conflict is on the shoulders of Hamas, Hamas alone.”

Dr. Naomi Wolf Substack: Language is changing in America; indeed, probably throughout the West. And the changes are not good. The changes I see being introduced into English speech in America, are designed to kill off the practices and assumptions of individual freedom and responsive representation that have also been embedded for generations in us as a people.

Don Surber Substack: Just as white smoke rising from the Vatican signals the election of a new pope, so the rise of anti-Semitism signals the beginning of a world war. Obama has his vengeance. He also has his three mansions (soon to be four with completion of an 8,900-square foot compound in Oahu). Surely, he will not feel the effects of the hell he is unleashing. At least, not in this life.

Tracy Beanz & Michelle Edwards contributors to The Highwire: Dr. Wahome Ngare, chairman of the Kenya Catholic Doctors Association, shared with The Defender that Maisha Namba will operate as a vaccination tracking program. No shock there since Gates has supported biometric digital ID initiatives for years. Similar to Ngare, privacy attorney Greg Glaser is concerned about the intentional path being laid to reach the endgame, which he remarked is transhumanism. Glaser noted to The Defender that “controlling people means controlling ID,” adding: “Biometric ID is to future dystopian society as batteries are to your TV’s remote control. Without the batteries, the remote control does nothing. Without biometric ID, dystopian technology fails: social credit scores, central bank digital currencies [CBDCs], smart devices in the Internet of Things.

David Bell contributor to Brownstone Institute: We already knew that. Public health, like plumbing or selling cars, is a way by which ordinary people make money. Therefore we need ordinary restraints and rules to make sure they do not abuse others for self-enrichment. The current mess is also society’s fault. Because these institutions deal in health, we pretended they were more caring, more ethical, and more able to self-regulate. The WHO’s version of self-regulation over the past 20 years has been to cast aside longstanding norms regarding conflict of interest and cozy up with Pharma and high net worth individuals in Davos. We should have expected this and prevented it.

Brad Slager contributor to TownHall.com: This new “un-woke” approach has brought success. Netflix recently posted quarterly reports that were glowing, with a better-than-expected rise in subscriptions, and the stock soared with double-digit increases on Wall Street. This is in defiance of the other streaming services bleeding out on a regular basis. Disney+ has been losing subscribers for consecutive quarters as the streaming service continues to be a massive financial drain. Others such as Comscast’s Peacock continues to lose billions, and Paramount+ is also facing big loses as it attempts to gain traction.

GLOBALISM (GREAT RESET/ONE WORLD ORDER) & TRANS HUMANISM (AI HUMANS 2.0) ARE INEXTRICABLY LINKED

(Excellent read) Wolf: Neo-Marxism and the End of Language

Language is changing in America; indeed, probably throughout the West. And the changes are not good. The changes I see being introduced into English speech in America, are designed to kill off the practices and assumptions of individual freedom and responsive representation that have also been embedded for generations in us as a people. The language and language practice changes that have arisen in the past few years tend to “deconstruct” (a favorite word of the globalist elite) the core concepts upon which the West has been built for four millennia. They also tend to subvert the norms of representational government that America has practiced since its founding. The new phrasings, cliches and speech patterns replace those foundational Western concepts with Marxist/feudalist and oligarchical concepts. […] Rather, the same monsters who have taken the rest of human civilization into their grip for the last two years, to establish their neo-Marxist/feudalist globalist oligarchy, are deliberately driving artificial changes in language and language practices. […] Why does this matter more than slightly? Changes in language are far from trivial. Linguists have pointed out, as I explore in my new book Facing the Beast: Courage, Faith and Resistance in a New Dark Age, that language constructs reality. People can only conceive, understand, communicate about and act upon what they can name. […] So those who wish to destroy America in other, material ways, such as by poisoning our pharmaceutical supply, as we discussed in Facing the Beast, or by buying up our farmland, are not wasting their time in their efforts also to subvert our language. Here are some examples.

Bell: How Did the Corruption of Public Health Happen?

International public health is a mess. Once seen generally as a public good, the focus of the World Health Organization (WHO) now more closely resembles a scheme for extracting private profit from the public purse. Wealthy corporations drive a ‘public-private partnership’ agenda, the foundations of the rich determine global priorities, and a propagandized public are ever more removed from decision-making regarding their own well-being. […] The WHO was designed in 1946 to help coordinate international public health. It was to be called upon by countries when needed. The WHO’s remit was primarily to address high burden diseases that cause avoidable sickness and death where countries lacked the resources or technical expertise needed. Although non-communicable diseases such as diabetes or obesity – or cancers and degenerative diseases such as dementia – kill most frequently, the WHO sensibly prioritized the unavoidable results of poverty or geography, predominantly infectious diseases, strike younger and so that shorten life far more. […] The current mess is also society’s fault. Because these institutions deal in health, we pretended they were more caring, more ethical, and more able to self-regulate. The WHO’s version of self-regulation over the past 20 years has been to cast aside longstanding norms regarding conflict of interest and cozy up with Pharma and high net worth individuals in Davos. We should have expected this and prevented it. […] The Covid-19 response of the international health industry, led by the WHO, impoverished the public and degraded health. The current rush to transfer greater powers to the WHO should therefore not be confused with public health. Publicly funding the further erosion of freedom and basic human rights would be self-harm, while funding access to basic healthcare is a global good. The public, and politicians who claim to represent them, should be clear on the difference.

BIDEN’S MANDATED mRNA COVID “VACCINATIONS”

Kirsch: We have been vindicated. The COVID vaccine killed hundreds of thousands of Americans and now we can prove it to anyone who will listen

Thank you to the 547 readers who filled out my survey. The results prove they lied to us about the COVID vaccine. It is a disaster. We now have an objective way to prove they lied to us. […] We have won. The finger pointing will now begin. Everyone is going to blame this on the other guy and not accept any responsibility. The CDC will blame the FDA. The FDA will blame the drug companies. The drug companies will blame the people running the trials. The doctors will blame the CDC. Congress will blame the CDC. The White House will blame the FDA and former President Trump. And Trump will blame everyone who worked for him. I now have a fully objective method that proves that the COVID vaccines killed hundreds of thousands of innocent Americans who trusted the healthcare authorities and mainstream media and took the shot. The method can be used by any health authority, anywhere in the world, to prove, without any doubt, that the COVID vaccines are killing people in massive numbers. The attempts to gaslight, censor, and defame me are over. The main results

  1. You were over 15% more likely to die if you got the COVID vaccine from all-cause mortality
  2. You were 12X more likely to have a turbo cancer vs. the unvaccinated
  3. Overall odds were 2.2 higher that you won’t die normally. In other words, “died suddenly” is absolutely real.
  4. COVID vaccines have killed 3.5X more people than COVID virus and 70X in lost person-years which is devastating.

The Highwire: WHAT’S CAUSING AUSTRALIA’S 17-18% RISE IN CARDIAC DEATHS?

Like China, Australia had a “Zero COVID” policy and imposed some of the world’s most draconian measures to protect the nation. Yet, Australia is now experiencing a historic surge in cardiac deaths. An accurate understanding of the cause of this crisis is key to its resolution. Yet, two radically different explanations lead to very different proposals for how to resolve this growing tragedy. It’s important to get this explanation right because the fate of Australia – and much of the world – hangs in the balance. Australian Doctors’ Explanations and Recommendations  report from the Daily Mail published in January of this year shows that Australian doctors blame the following two factors for the sudden rise in cardiac deaths: . . . […] Ed Dowd: Top Data Analyst Implicates COVID Shots However, former Blackrock Portfolio Manager Ed Dowd is not buying Australia’s explanation for the surge of cardiac deaths in 2022.  He provides a radically different explanation, pointing to the mRNA COVID shots as the most likely explanation. His recommendation – like that of a growing contingent of doctors worldwide – is to stop the COVID-19 shots immediately.

Unruh: Huge chunk of COVID-vax victims hit with ‘tremors, insomnia, muscle spasms’

A new study confirms that almost one in three COVID-19 shot victims were hit, after taking the jab, with “tremors, insomnia, muscle spasms,” and more, revealing the shots’ huge toll in neurological complications. […] It suggested that one hypothesis was that the shots, which technically were DNA treatments and not vaccines at all, could make “the selective immune-mediated destruction of orexin-producing neurons, which is T-cell-mediated neuronal damage, thus triggering narcolepsy.” The study “urgently” suggested “future investigations.”

May: Australia Warns Ferries about EVs

Australia’s Maritime Safety Authority has issued a domestic commercial vessel safety alert on the risks of ferrying battery powered cars (EVs), download it here. Each ferry operator must conduct a risk assessment for their vessel to ensure that they are capable of dealing with potential EV fires. They list the risks of carrying EVs as follows:

High voltage shocks

Direct jet flames

Fires develop in intensity quickly and rapidly reach their maximum intensity (typically within 2-3 minutes)

Toxic gases

Gas explosion (if the released gas accumulates for a while before being ignited)

Long lasting re-ignition risk (can ignite or re-ignite weeks, or maybe months after the provoking incident)

Once established fires are difficult to stop/extinguish

Thermal runaway

THE CORRUPT & DANGEROUS U.S. INTELLIGENCE AGENCIES & THE ADMINISTRATIVE STATE APPARATUS

Wong: Exclusive — ‘We Caught Them Red-Handed’: DOJ Spied on GOP Staffers Probing the Origins of the Russia Collusion Hoax

The Department of Justice (DOJ) obtained private communications and other personal records of multiple Republican House and Senate staffers who were investigating the department’s role in the origins of the Russia collusion hoax, according to former senior Trump administration official Kash Patel.

A recently-revealed subpoena shows that the DOJ sought the records for not only Patel when he was an investigator for then-Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA), but also those of Jason Foster, who was at the time chief investigative counsel to then-Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (I-IA) and was also looking into the DOJ’s role in the hoax.

CHINA: AMERICA’S MORTAL ENEMY

Killough: China’s low standards, tariffs, forced labor threaten US food security, agribusiness experts say

American grocery shelves are rapidly filling up with cheap canned food imported from China, displacing American producers’ goods and raising concerns about food safety and food security, U.S. trade associations and experts are saying. According to the Can Manufacturers Institute (CMI), a trade association supporting manufacturers of cans for both food and non-food items and their suppliers, American producers are at a disadvantage because they have to pay U.S. steel tariffs, which do not extend to finished Chinese-produced canned foods. In addition to the savings on tariffs enjoyed by Chinese companies, American companies are also held to higher standards of quality and labor regulations – and thus more costly compliance – than those of the Chinese. “That’s created an inequality, allowing for a cheaper, potentially lower-quality produce from another country that doesn’t have the same FDA [U.S. Food and Drug Administration] standards that the American industry has to follow,” said Sherrie Rosenblatt, vice president of marketing and communications for CMI, told Just The News. […] Budway said that American consumers should be concerned with what China would do with an advantage over the American food supply, should Chinese businesses displace a large portion of American agriculture and food manufacturing.

Biden has told Netanyahu he needs to think about the lessons he would pass on to his successors, Politico reported. One current U.S. official told the site that the shocking intelligence failures that allowed Hamas to attack, and the unrest in some quarters at the massive loss of life in Gaza, left Netanyahu severely weakened. The official said some believed Netanyahu could be out of office within several months, once the initial Gaza response is over.

Wauck: Doug Macgregor Speaking Truth To Power

A remarkable interview by Glenn Diesen, with Doug Macgregor. It’s always remarkable when a person in Macgregor’s position speaks the truth. Here are transcript highlights. They’re a bit rough. I’ve done the punctuation, but not caps: Diesen frames the basic question: has Israel and the United States overplayed their hand or have they walked into something they can’t control? what do you see the strategy being—and the risks, of course? Macgregor: whenever a nation state involves itself in conflict they need to immediately shed the illusion of control. it’s very difficult to to foresee all circumstances and that’s why even the best strategist recognizes that goals and objectives have to adapt and change. I think the problem we have right now with both the government in Israel and the government in United States is there really is no strategy per se. the Israelis are reacting to the events of 7 October …

BIDEN/HARRIS/OBAMA’S AMERICA LAST REGIME: THE FUNDAMENTAL TRANSFORMATION OF AMERICA

Surber: World War Obama

His envy of Donald Trump has unleashed hell on Earth. The New York Times reported on May 20, 2017, “Saudis Welcome Trump’s Rebuff of Obama’s Mideast Views.” The story began, “With trumpets blaring, cannons booming and fighter jets streaking overhead trailed by red, white and blue contrails, President Trump arrived in the scorching heat of the Arabian desert on Saturday hoping to realign the politics and diplomacy of the Middle East by forcefully reasserting American support for Sunni Muslim countries and Israel against Iran’s Shiite-led government. “The start of Mr. Trump’s first trip abroad since becoming president — coming amid the scandals and chaos engulfing his administration — was intended to be a blunt rejection of President Barack Obama’s vision for the region. Mr. Obama sought a reconciliation with Iran and negotiated a deal intended to keep Tehran from developing nuclear weapons.” Imagine that you are Barack Hussein Obama reading this in one of your mansions (well, the one in Chicago barely qualifies at only 6,500 square feet) and you read this. Trump — the man you mocked for 6 years — is undoing all your efforts to give Iran nukes and destabilize the Middle East. The Saudis fell over themselves to praise him. […] President Trump would go on to get five Muslim countries to recognize Israel’s right to exist — bringing the total to 7 Muslim nations in 75 years. This really infuriated Obama, long an anti-Semite who attended Columbia (“Jewish Columbia students slam university’s ‘inaction’ against antisemitism: ‘I don’t feel safe’”) and Harvard (“Harvard lionized professor after finding he discriminated against Jewish students”). […] And Obama got his vengeance on Trump and the world, didn’t he? The Deep State Democrat was able to use biomedical warfare from Red China and stuffing the ballot box with mailed-in votes to install Banana Republic Biden as president. Obama quickly undid everything Trump accomplished.

Kruta: Kamala Harris Announces ‘National Strategy To Combat Islamophobia’ In The Wake Of Anti-Semitic Threats

Vice President Kamala Harris went public on Wednesday with the Biden administration’s newest project — a National Strategy to Counter Islamophobia — in the wake of increasing and escalating anti-semitic threats and attacks in the United States and worldwide. “Taking on hate is a national priority. Today, @POTUS and I are announcing the country’s first National Strategy to Counter Islamophobia. This action is the latest step forward in our work to combat a surge of hate in America,” Harris shared in a post on X, along with a brief video. […] “There’s been an outbreak of antisemitism like we haven’t seen since before WWII, so here comes Kamala Harris to the rescue,” Frank Fleming added. “In the aftermath of the mass murder of Jews by genocidal maniacs, and college campuses revealed to be full of antisemites loudly marching and terrorizing Jews, Democrats have found the real problem: Too many people not liking Islam,” another posted.

Shapiro tells Brian it’s because we’ve permitted hate to fester in certain communities while surrendering our western values — falling for the sadistic “decolonization” ideology that dehumanizes the people it targets. And, Shapiro says, Joe Biden and Justin Trudeau are already weakening in confronting it.

Ozimek: Republicans Raise Terror Alarm After Illegal Immigrants Caught With Explosive Devices

Republican senators have sounded the alarm on the Biden administration’s border policies after Border Patrol agents caught illegal border crossers who were carrying explosive devices that Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyo.) said were “tailor-made for terrorism.” Mr. Barrasso, who is the Senate Republican Conference Chairman, made the startling revelation at a press conference on Oct. 31, alongside Sens. John Cornyn (R-Texas), Ted Cruz (R-Texas), and Pete Ricketts (R-Neb.), following their recent visit to the U.S.–Mexico border. […] Several days ago, U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents seized illegal immigrants carrying with them improvised explosive devices that Mr. Barrasso said were the “size of cannonballs” and were “tailor-made for terrorism.” […] “We’re opening ourselves up for a terrorist attack.”

Schlichter: America’s Shame

A pack of braying savages-sycophants cornered some Jewish students in New York City inside a school library not long ago. The solution to this was obvious –turn the cops on them – with sticks or worse – to disperse them, then expel the little degenerates. But what the powers that be went with was something wholly different. They helpfully suggested that the Jewish students hide in an attic. In America. In our biggest city. Hide in an attic, Jews. The solution to a bunch of vicious cheerleaders for people who put babies in ovens was not to utterly crush them and make them pay. No, the bright idea was that the Jews go hide in an attic. “Anne Frank 2: The EnBidening.” I guess Never Again has become Oh Well, Okay. What a disgrace. What an abomination. But this is America under our garbage ruling class today.

Poleo: Migrant caravan headed north swells by a THOUSAND people in 24 hours to 7,000 people as Chinese influencers are showing migrants how to cross US southern border

Organizer Irineo Mujica said on Tuesday the caravan had swelled since Monday by about 1,000 to more than 7,000 people, although a spokesperson for the Chiapas government said state authorities still estimated its size at around 3,500 participants.  It comes as the US is seeing a big increase in arriving using a relatively new and perilous route through Panama’s Darién Gap jungle, thanks in part to social media posts and videos providing step-by-step guidance. Chinese people were the fourth-highest nationality, after Venezuelans, Ecuadorians and Haitians, crossing the Darién Gap during the first nine months of this year, according to Panamanian immigration authorities. Chinese migrants using this route fly to Ecuador and then make their way north to the U.S.-Mexico border. The monthly number of Chinese migrants crossing the Darién has been rising gradually, from 913 in January to 2,588 in September. At the U.S.-Mexico border, the Border Patrol made 22,187 arrests of Chinese people for crossing the border illegally from Mexico from January through September, nearly 13 times the same period in 2022.

THE WAR IN ISRAEL

(H/T KM) Miszial: ISRAEL’S STRATEGIC CHALLENGE

For nearly two decades, Israel has eschewed making strategic choices in dealing with the terrorist groups that surround it, relying instead on deterrence to minimize their threat while tolerating their presence. That approach failed on Oct. 7. Currently, Israel appears to be prioritizing the operational objective of clearing Hamas from Gaza. But it cannot afford to avoid grappling with the question of what that failure of deterrence means for its future security.  The most pressing strategic question for Israel, however, is not the one that has seized the attention of Western capitals — who will govern Gaza after Hamas. Instead, determining how to reestablish deterrence against other Iranian-backed groups, principally Hizballah in the north, is the more urgent challenge. Delaying operations or pursuing more minimal goals in the south while tackling the northern threat, by preemption if necessary, could do more to restore Israeli security than a massive ground offensive against Hamas. It would also buy time to develop viable options for the future governance of Gaza […]  Thus, the Israeli government had chosen, rather than a strategy for dealing with these persistent threats, an approach that sought merely to deter them for as long as possible.

Deterrence Lost Before the Oct. 7 attack, Israeli deterrence had been built on three legs. The first, and most obvious, was . . . […]  The North Is Coming  The death and destruction that Hamas dealt is nothing compared to the devastating potential of Hizballah’s 150,000+ rocket arsenal. Israel estimates that Hizballah could sustain a rate of fire of at least 6,000–8,000 rockets per day. That would significantly exceed the 3,000 rockets that Hamas was able to launch on Oct. 7 — already the single largest volume of incoming fire Israel has ever faced. And, after honing its combined-arms capabilities in Syria, Hizballah fighters could stage . . .

Saavedra: CNN Airs Images Of Human Remains From Hamas’ Terrorist Attack On Israel

CNN’s Jake Tapper showed this week some of the human remains that were left behind after Hamas brutally murdered 1,400 Israelis last month. Tapper, who has been reporting live from Tel Aviv over the past few weeks, showed the images during Wednesday’s broadcast of “The Lead” after speaking with Dr. Chen Kugel, the director of Israel’s National Institute of Forensic Medicine, about why it is so difficult for officials to identify some of the bodies. […] CNN: Disturbing content: “Two sets of rib cages, one smaller, with a wire, tied together.” The bodies of Israeli men, women, children and babies murdered by Hamas were so dismembered that forensic specialists are having trouble identifying them.

Liberatore; America’s new super-nuke explained: B61-13 is the first ‘gravity bomb’ to feature guided tail kit and will unleash blast radius the size of two Manhattans

The Pentagon announced this week that it is developing a new nuclear ‘gravity bomb’ that is 24 times more powerful than the nuke detonated in Hiroshima. As the name implies, the B61-13 is the 13th variant of the B61 family of ‘gravity bombs,’ which fall to their target rather than being guided.

The new bomb will have the same explosive yield as its predecessor, the Cold War-era B61-7, estimated to be 360,000 tons, giving off a blast radius of roughly 190,000 feet, the length of two Manhattans. The project will essentially see the same B61-7 warhead put into a new casing. Unlike the older model, the new bomb will feature modern safety and control features and an upgraded tail kit to help it fall straight and hit the target.

Kuntson: Federal jury verdict on broker fees rocks real estate industry

A federal jury in Kansas City on Tuesday found the National Association of Realtors (NAR) and some of the largest real estate brokers in the country guilty of colluding to inflate real estate commissions. Why it matters: The verdict is a major shake up to the U.S. real estate market and could change how Americans purchase homes, or specifically, how they pay for broker fees. The big picture: The jury, after around two weeks of testimony from the plaintiffs and defendants, ordered the NAR and real estate franchises HomeServices of America and Keller Williams to pay $1.78 billion in damages to the sellers of more than 260,000 homes in Missouri, Kansas and Illinois — the plaintiffs in the case.

Pulver: Dozens of birds, including ones named after white supremacists, are being renamed

Dozens of bird species in the United States and Canada will get “imaginative” new names that reflect their traits and habitats rather than the names of people, the American Ornithological Society announced Wednesday. The society plans to remove all human names from the common names for birds within its jurisdiction, to create a more inclusive environment for people of diverse backgrounds interested in bird-watching and ornithology. The public process, yet to be fully defined, will include 70 to 80 birds in the U.S. and Canada, the society stated. Following years of controversy over bird names linked to people with racist and genocidal histories, the society’s decision thrills ornithologists and scientists who supported a campaign to name birds for themselves.  “I’m really excited about this change,” said Corina Newsome, an ornithologist who was among a group of dozens of Black outdoor enthusiasts that launched the first Black Birders Week in May 2020. […] The committee also proposes to change names considered derogatory or culturally inappropriate for three other birds: the flesh-footed shearwater; Eskimo curlew, and Inca dove.

DEMOCRAT PARTY MARXIST PLAYBOOK: THE FEMINIST MOVEMENT       

Mercola: The Disturbing Truth About Oral Contraceptives

The video above reviews the shady backstory of the birth control pill, the roots of which can be traced back to the eugenics and population control movements. As noted in this video, birth control pills do not “just prevent ovulation by mimicking hormones.” They do a whole lot more. They also destroy women’s health. […] During the post-World War II era, the U.S. experienced an unprecedented economic upswing that led to a surge in marriage and birth rates (the baby boom era) as well as industrial growth. Christian family values predominated and there were restrictions on both contraception and abortion.

At the same time, the feminist movement started emerging, with feminist activists encouraging women to enter the workforce rather than being “barefoot and pregnant.” This societal tidal change also aligned with the interests of big business, which saw an opportunity to expand their consumer base by encouraging women to earn their own money. As noted in the video:  . . . ‘No woman should be authorized to stay at home and raise her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have that choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one.’

The number of working mothers quadrupled between 1940 and 1960. While the motivations of big business benefiting from increased labor and consumption … may seem evident, there were other forces at play behind the scenes.” Population Control and Eugenics Two of those forces were the eugenics and population control movements. Thomas Malthus seeded the narrative about the need for population control, arguing that population growth must be curtailed so as not to surpass the available food supply, lest we all die from starvation and strife.

Gress: Where Have All The Good Women Gone?

In her new book, The Toxic War on Masculinity, Nancy Pearcey explains that men intuitively understand the difference between a good man and a real man. Sociologist Michael Kimmel asked thousands of men two questions, starting with cadets at West Point. What is a good man, and what is a real man? The characteristics of the good man, the cadets reported, are: “Honor, duty, integrity, sacrifice, do the right thing, stand up for the little guy, be a provider, be a protector.” The real man’s characteristics, on the other hand, are “tough, strong, never show weakness, win at all costs, suck it up, play through pain, be competitive, get rich, get laid.” The good man puts others before himself while the real man puts himself first. Despite years of the culture trying to tear down masculinity, this timeless distinction between a good man and a real man remains. What happens when we apply the same questions to women: What is a good woman? What is a real woman? The answers are nowhere as easy and clear. The last 50 years have airbrushed any semblance of a good woman from the culture and replaced her with the working woman.

Gress: 6 Ways To Detox From Marxist Feminism For A Happier Life

While men can still articulate a “good man” versus a “real man,” no categories remain for a “good woman” versus a “real woman.” Most of us operate unwittingly with the Marxist categories force-fed to us by feminism, particularly Betty Friedan’s propaganda about the toxicity of home and the freedom to be obtained through work. These little-scrutinized ideas about womanhood now provide the ideal for us today. Utility, productivity, power, and control have supplanted the virtues of what we used to equate with a good woman, such as kindness, compassion, and fidelity. How, then, do we detox from this cultural and anthropological poison?
