Feminism is a Right-Wing Movement
Some people know exactly what I am talking about here, whilst others will splutter in befuddlement at something they consider both counter-intuitive and counter-axiomatic.
I posted the following video some time around mid-2011, and it enlarges upon these matters. It is quite cerebral, and not easy to follow unless you stick with it. I make no apologies; difficult ideas are exactly that, difficult. They involve hard work on both ends, in the conception and the comprehension alike. But such things follow a trajectory of development. At first they are comprehended only by a few, then they are streamlined for consumption by progressively larger circles of hearers. But the process needs to begin somewhere, right? ;)
The written version of this video may be found here:
I was inspired to make the present post when I discovered the following item on TDOM's blog. Somehow, I had overlooked it all this time. But it pertains to what we are now talking about, and I strongly urge you to read it. It is intriguingly titled, with a title I wish I'd thought of myself:
The Schizo-Political Identity of Feminism
As you will observe, TDOM was writing under the inspiration of my original post upon the subject, and his concluding summary might be a tad easier to assimilate:
"Feminism transcends left and right. It is neither and it is both. It favors wealth and cultural redistribution from male to female while seeking to establish a totalitarian police state to control the “oppressor class.” To that end it has abandoned the liberal ideal of personal freedom and liberty for all, in favor of personal freedom and liberty for the new feminist oppressor class while restricting liberty and freedom for the new oppressed class (male). It seeks to replace what it calls patriarchy with matriarchy (which can now be equated with female supremacism). Thus while claiming to hold the liberal ideal of “equality” feminism has in reality adopted the conservative ideal of a ruling class superior to that of the working class and with more rights and privilege and the full force of the state to enforce that privilege."
So there you have it. The feminist bird has both a "left" wing, and a "right" wing. And if it had only one wing, it would be a bird fluttering in crazy loops on the ground.
Feminism appears to be chiefly a thing of the political left because that is the only way it could ever break surface and become publicly visible. Only on the left can feminism as such become sui generis, because only on the left can be found the audacity to attack existing institutions in a radical way. You will not find such audacity on the right. So it is only on the left that deep-structural gynocentrism can join itself to radical destructive forces, and breed a radically innovative cultural life-form. Mere gynocentrism on the right would be constrained to honor the integrity of existing institutions, so it wouldn't get far.
So finally, we may liken feminism to a plant with a widespread root system. The plant itself breaks surface in "left" territory, but the roots penetrate a far greater range of cultural soil.
The sum total of this "plant", is what we call the femplex.
