Has Women’s Liberation Been Worth It?

An historical sequence of events exemplified by advances in the women’s liberation movement combined with demographic changes in the American population has led to an irreversible catastrophe of cataclysmic proportion in the U.S. and throughout the world.

Allow me to pen the historical steps that led to the present situation.  Few women in the 1960s would guess that the women’s liberation movement would have such a profound effect upon geopolitical events in the world today.

Recently in the news is the story of a woman with five children who committed adultery, left her husband for another man because, as she said it, after they married, he became rigid in his religion and demanding on her.  Women are to be seen and not heard. I was merely to take care of the children. To keep them out of his way.” The traditional division of labor was not to be in this marriage.  This mother was taken away by the family court and only allowed to see her children once every two weeks.  Later when the father mentally flipped and killed his children (probably related to antidepressant drugs he may have been taking), she went into court weeping: “My babies, my babies, Oh God!” she cried in the courtroom.  This absent mother called them “her” babies.  She was elsewhere when her babies needed her most.  The feminist news press gave her headline sympathy.

Now combine these changes in social practices and sexual liberation with these unprecedented changes in demographics.

Tell me where I am wrong here?   What if those 60 million abortions over the past five decades became live births?  The U.S. wouldn’t have to allow illegal immigrants across the border to bolster tax revenues to temporarily save Social Security and Medicare for retirees.

Western Europe is confronted with the same problems.  Since approval of abortion in the UK in 1967 to 2014, 8,745,508 abortions have been performed, lower birth rates and fewer young workers have resulted.  The U.K. and France have had to recruit young Arabic populations to bolster their work force to pay for the needs of retirees, but at the cost of inclusion of an immigrant population that has a different culture, does not value work, is often illiterate, that spends more time on a prayer rug than their jobs, that intermarries their cousins to retain wealth in their families at the cost of birth defects in their offspring.  The clash of cultures is not going turning out to be good.  What hath abortion wrought?

Was the sexual revolution worth it? 

Attorney Joseph King of New York, author of “Awake, The Return of Men (2018), laments at the rise of the feminist agenda.  King says women have historically been subservient to whomever was in power.  This runs counter to the Constitutional government that was implanted in America where government was to be divided and minimized and considered a threat to freedom.  Women have gained freedom but at a great price to their children and society.

He says in this age of feminism the reason given why there are fewer women in traditionally male dominated fields such as math and science is not because of biological differences but rather discriminative sexism.

He notes “since the feminist revolution, our culture has become increasingly feminized.”  Women in government now argue over men being traditionally in charge, not substantive issues that demand attention.  The purpose of government now is to elect more females, not deal with the pressing issues of the day.

King says women value feelings over truth.  Nurturing females core principal is to protect those perceived to be weak, illegal immigrants, minorities, homosexuals, and of course, women.  Therefore, there is a rise in the welfare state and erosion of the rule of law.  Illegal immigrants are now undocumented migrants.  King says women have traditionally built successful families but never a successful nation.  The rise of the welfare state has come at the cost of undermining the traditional family.

The Free Society Laurence M. Vance Buy New $19.95 (as of 09:55 EDT - Details) American culture is changing.  King cites a 2015 poll showing 60% of American women identify as feminists.  King says these changes appear to be irreversible.

Divorced fathers aren’t sitting at the dinner table any more.  Women look to government to protect them and their children, not their husbands.  In the past Presidential election, 75% of single mothers voted for the Democratic candidate that buys votes with government give-aways.  As long as government provides free birth control, food stamps, medical care, women don’t have to face the consequences of sometimes poor choices they make.  Women have built a world where men are no longer needed or even respected.

King says women have now become “the driving force in our nation.”  He notes: “The increasing influence of women coincides with an unsustainable growth in welfare spending, the disintegration of the nuclear family, and a profound loss of national cohesion.”

America is now bipolar.  There is a battle of world views, as King states: What prevails now is empathy over justice, multiculturalism over nationalism and equality over merit.
