Civil rights surely set the nation and world upon a certain path. But also, and perhaps even more influential was the PILL. before the Pill [birth control], women were locked into old world convenience of nuclear families based upon practicality. It was probably easier to submit to the homemaker undertones of her sexuality for sake of, well, her own survival. Remember, getting pregnant too young once meant almost being banished from the community; and surely being of ill repute.
Was it the pill or your press promoting the role of hallowed Hollywood sluts?
Images, Tooly, images, all based upon lies and misrepresentations.
And lack of proper mythology and metaphysics, wrong physics instead.

Had there been a strong moral basis, the pill would have been only useful.

Good. Strong women make a strong society.
> To that end, it would be hard to argue against. Surely women's empowerment is a good thing; and once again, raised awareness to a GREATER Humanity [that thing that's been with us since our founding as a growing, expanding, learning...and thusly EVOLVING thing].
> Alas, there is a ying and then a yang; too much of a thing here, might mean to little of a thing there. Somehow, women's empowerment...a good thing...took on the auspices of Marxism. Now, Marxism might be one of the most EVIL general philosophies ever produced by human beings...and if understood at it's most fundamental assessment, exists not for our 'great humanity', but actually to DESTROY that humanity altogether. For, at that fundamental assessement, Marxism teaches one essentialy thing: "There there can only ever be...the OPPRESSOR and the OPPRESSED".
Agreed. Hitler too had strong views about the bads of Marxism.
But Marxism was popular as the white racist bigots were insufferably exploitative, having no moral checks.
Marxism means grab without hesitation, and that always has its appeal among the have nots.
The promiscuity resulting from outing family values is also acceptable to the bandits and fashionable people.
> Yes, volumes have been written...yet, if BOILED to it's ultimate essence, THIS is all Marxism says. That we...ALL OF US ...are either part of the OPPRESSED...or we are the OPPRESSOR. From that single angle, there can ONLY BE STRUGGLE; underclasses against aristocracy [ergo, the RUssian Revolution], or poor man against the wealthy, or an minority against any dominant majority, or any underruling race against the racial undertone of national foundation [CRT anyone?], or...in the case of women's empowerment and expanding role in society that the PILL afforded [that changed a lot attitudes from victorian households]....FEMINISM, which was simply the MARXIST employment of that new found FREEDOM and expansion....to WEAPONIZE one gender against the other.
Males were a bit too overbearing, what. What works is being kind and thoughtful.
> STRUGGLE. THat's all there is under Marxism. END OF STORY. Even if one faction wins out in their struggle to become the dominance, it is THEN, THEY who become the OPPRESSOR...and whomever is under THEIR domain, now the OPPRESSED.
But Marxism is a bad idea, so never practical. The Soviets I grew up with had strong family values, so they were not really Marxists.
> STRUGGLE. No longer can we be HUMANITY reaching for betterment amongst ourselves; where we find human grace with one another...but all we can do is FORTIFY and stand with whatever ARMY of the OPPRESSED we define to ourselves [or be an army of the defense of whatever domain that exists].

They have to be well treated.

. as one Mother to her daughters [or even fathers who of course loved their daughters as is natural]...but is also skipped across that pond to reach into adademy; into our classrooms, into authority...and many intellectuals have been captivated...and much like CRT today, the INTELLECTUALIZATION of a thing seems to raise it's validity...at least to the degree is very very hard to FIGHT AGAINST...even if one knows, deep down in their own sense of that HUMANITY...
Sack them.Avoid them. Join some other class.

There is no respect without love, and love is paramount.
> ANd so, kids can not only demonstrated in front of Supreme Court justices personal homes, but they can also riot and burn things down all in indigniation of how so HARD THEY HAVE IT. When in fact...the TRUTH...is the problem is how so EASY THEY HAVE IT...and have had it for decades now. THEY HAVE NO REFERENCE of what true tyranny is; of what loss of free speech REALLY means; of what real starvation and lack of resource REALLY is.
They have been lied to all their pampered lives. They have seen infidelities and cynicism. No ideals, just selfish greediness and hypocrisy.
> THEY tear down western civilization not knowing what it is they do [someone else said something along those lines as the story goes].
They are without positive examples for good leadership.
> Berliners somehow understood who the good guys were. It is something our own children no longer know. Maybe it's because they no longer RESPECT...well...the MALE of who we are.
No respect without love first.
Bad examples from robots crush love, making it lust.
Robots read out and enact bad stories.
Too much sex and violence, no humour and care. Zero spirituality, lots of cunning.
> No...this is not an argument where strong men should take back what weakness has provided us; the turmoil of today. It is recognition that, though strong, the greatest quality of his character was that he was GOOD. and that he KNEW NO FEAR [or so miniscule as to indetectable]. Unfortunately, that will not happen; as once on rampage, little will stop stampeding cattle.
Fatheads will remain fatheads.
Whether one is good or bad is for others to say, not for the party to declare.
Vote out the bad.
If you cannot then support a dictator and pray he is blessed.
May he initiate superpolitics - my essay on that in my fb timeline.
After that, hurrah! No worries, good will prevail for keeps.
