Another Way of Saying That This is a War
Straight from the department of "things which bear repeating". Yes, the basic lessons are the timeless ones, are they not? And they crop up over, and over, and over again. You can never over-learn them overmuch.
The video above is my opening statement on the doctrine of post-argumentalism. This was first published in written form in early 2007.
Feminism is your enemy, and the obligation to treat feminists as fellow human beings is officially waived. They are not fellow human beings, they are ALIENS. Well, at least until they demonstrate that they are, in fact, human. And in order to accomplish THAT to our satisfaction, they must jump through a very exacting series of hoops. The feminists themselves have constructed these "hoops", knowingly or not, during the last half-century. And the process of jumping through them shall be a way of backtracking through the history which they have made, and dismantling it step by step.
Oh yes, I know what some people are thinking at this point. So let me underscore that feminism is in no way a race or an ethnic group. And although it is certainly a culture (emphasis on the "cult" syllable!) and has many features of a religion, it cannnot rightfully portray itself as a long-established ethnic community. No more than, say, the KKK, the Nazis, the Scientologists, the Moonies, Amnesty International, the Southern Poverty Law Center or the Westboro Baptist Church could uphold such a claim.
And I forgot to mention that feminism, unlike femaleness, is not a biological category. Likewise, feminists, unlike women, are not a birth group. But as you probably know, feminists act like a kind of pseudo birth group when they encourage the general public to conflate feminist with female. This little trick, which the feminists love to practice every chance they get, is known as hiding behind women.
So let's not hear any crap about so-called "hate speech". You see, there is simply no way that you can resist evil, denounce tyranny, or call pernicious things by their right names, without crossing a fine line into "hate speech" or something very like it. Extremism against a bully is no vice, and since bullies have their own moral economy, you are entitled to pay them in their own coin.
The important thing to understand about the feminists is, that they will not change their outward behavior unless social heat and pressure are inflicted upon them. What, do you think they will stop what they are doing just because somebody intellectually convinces them they are mistaken? They will do no such thing, because they are people with an agenda who know they are "right", and they lack the gift to see themselves as the rest of the world sees them. So that is why we, the rest of the world, must work over and around them and straight through them.
We needn't ask their permission to do what we plan to do to them, any more than they originally asked our permission to do what they did to us.
Yes, this is a war. Such is the metaphor which captures the reality now confronting us, and we have not reached our conclusion lightly. Years of painstaking analysis and discussion, throughout the non-feminist sector, have gone into this.
It is not simply a "war of ideas". It is only superficially that, but the essence of it goes far deeper. In fact, it is a war of sheer will. If you are too squeamish to handle a word like "war", then call it an essential conflict. That works as euphemism. But true war is and can only be a primordial contest of opposed volitions -- sheer will, as I said just above. In the end, it is about power. Obviously. So, the phrase "war of ideas" is far too cute, for it implies that we are still having an intellectual contest of some kind. It implies debate, but that notion is contemptible when you face a crooked opponent who has stacked the deck of power in his own favor.
Finally, this is just war, straight and simple. "War of ideas" is a non-sensical notion in the way that "four-sided triangle" is a non-sensical notion. By the end of the day, "ideas" do not wage war in the real world. People and power do.
Friend, I'll stand back-to-back with you on that barren, windswept mountaintop. The air is thin up yonder, yet keen and bracing. And the view is fine.
