The biggest damsels in distress are feminists, while they also complain they hate damsels in distress. It's hypocritical and ignorant but it seems the rest of the world has yet to notice this. Miss Misanthropist
Perseus999: On April 7, 2015 following a protest of 1.500 – 2.000 anarchists in the centre of Athens, riots erupted in Exarchia to bring attention to a mass hunger strike of political prisoners taking place in Greece since March 2, 2015. At the moment (April 10) 8 anarchists still continue the hunger strike, some of them for the 40th day.
I say we need to pick our battles. Abandon and fight off those who are unreceptive, and save your energy, time, and resources for guys you might actually be able to help. And also for these unreceptive guys once they come back after being taken through the grinder. Raging Golden Eagle
By AVfM Video Source:The following talk by renowned psychologist James Hillman was given at the Minnesota Men’s Conference in 1988. Unlike many in the Mythopoetic men’s movement, Hillman refused to ignore the world and its political and cultural problems. In this talk he takes on the topic of power, of the many forms that power can take in society, and of feminism’s attack on expressions of power. He appeals for the reinvention and rediscovery of all the ancient facets of power in human culture, stating “I want to re-empower power, from the bad case that it’s been given, and find the places where you’re putting your power-drive down, with false humility, with niceness, with adaptation…”
"...kids died on the front line in Palestine, ...they're gunning down our wives, children, babies, grannies, uncles they're all running to survive. Can't you see that it's genocide like every single day." GlobalFaction
The details of these financial dealings remain
murky, but this much is clear: After millions of dollars were pledged by
the oil company to the Clinton Foundation — supplemented
by millions more from Giustra himself — Secretary Clinton abruptly
changed her position on the controversial U.S.-Colombia trade pact.
Having opposed the deal as a bad one for labor rights back when she was a
presidential candidate in 2008, she now promoted it, calling it
“strongly in the interests of both Colombia and the United States.” The
change of heart by Clinton and other Democratic leaders enabled
congressional passage of a Colombia trade deal that experts say
delivered big benefits to foreign investors like Giustra.
The details of her family’s entanglements in Colombia
echo talk that the Clintons have blurred the lines between their private
business and philanthropic interests and those of the nation.
And Hillary Clinton’s connections to Pacific Rubiales and Giustra
intensify recent questions about whether big donations influenced her
decisions as secretary of state.
By August Løvenskiolds: The theme of our upcoming October conference on men’s issues, ICMI 15, is Building Bridges Between Men and Women in the 21st Century. On the surface this may sound easy but the truth is harsh: Bridges are a bitch. Whether you are trying to cross a chasm, a treacherous sea or a raging river – or all three – the task of bridge-building is daunting and the cost is enormous. The weather, the tides, the floods – and even if you build a beautiful, state-of-the-art structure, unforeseen factors like harmonic failure can kill your bridge catastrophically.
Yet as difficult as it is to build a physical bridge, building a social / political / ideological bridge is harder and more fraught with pitfalls for the brave souls that try it.
By Michael Snyder: The systematic destruction of the American way of life is happening
all around us, and yet most people have no idea what is happening. Once
upon a time in America, if you were responsible and hard working you
could get a good paying job that could support a middle class lifestyle
for an entire family even if you only had a high school education.
Things weren’t perfect, but generally almost everyone in the entire
country was able to take care of themselves without government
assistance. We worked hard, we played hard, and our seemingly boundless
prosperity was the envy of the entire planet. But over the past
several decades things have completely changed. We consumed far more
wealth than we produced, we shipped millions of good paying jobs
overseas, we piled up the biggest mountain of debt in the history of the
world, and we kept electing politicians that had absolutely no concern
for the long-term future of this nation whatsoever. So now good jobs
are in very short supply, we are drowning in an ocean of red ink, the
middle class is rapidly shrinking and dependence on the government is at
an all-time high. Even as we stand at the precipice of the next great
economic crisis, we continue to make the same mistakes. In the end, all
of us are going to pay a very great price for decades of incredibly
foolish decisions. Of course a tremendous amount of damage has already
been done. The numbers that I am about to share with you are
staggering. The following are 19 signs that American families are being
