The Problem Of The Independent Woman

Do you know how the custom of men opening doors for women began?

It began because in the past a good solid door was made of hardwood which was both big and heavy. So when a man opened a door for a woman it was a very practical thing, not an act of chivalry. Over time doors have become much light and now it is simple courtesy and only mildly practical.

When I was growing up women had a reputation as bad drivers, today that reputation is no where as bad. One thing that has changed in cars is that today cars have power steering. Back then they did not and the only way to steer a car was by using your arm muscles. I had the experience of driving an older car without power steering for a few months and without any other exercise but driving I built up my arm muscles. That's how much effort was required. 

I mention these things because we often forget that technology has changed the relationship between the sexes. Men were once, not that long ago, needed because they were bigger and stronger. The world was not designed to be easy like it is today. Men were tougher and more masculine because that was required by society, even simple things like driving a car built muscles. 

These changes in technology have had an enormous effect upon the sexes. Things that once defined each sex, that gave each unique powers and tasks have now been reduced so that we still mentally want these things but we no longer need them, strictly speaking. By that I mean that we still want these things because we need them, but we can now pretend that we do not. One of these things is men as the provider.

We are constantly told that women don't need a man, that she can and should be independent, that she should never be in a position whereby she is dependent upon a man. Which leaves us with a problem and that problem is human nature. Humans, like other creatures with sex, have different roles for each sex to fulfil. The division of labour by sex is the base upon which both nature and society is built. One of those divisions is that men are the provider, not absolutely of course, but still overwhelmingly. One of the roles of men is to be the one who interacts with the world, one of the roles of women is to interact with other people, particularly women and children, to be the nurturer. 

To put it another way men went out and earned resources, either goods or money, to provide for his family. The role of women was to use those resources to look after him, herself, their children and anyone else important to them. He made the money, she spent the money. The division of labour was clear, each had a role and each role was vital. Each role was distinct so that they did not waste time or resources doing the same thing or in competition to each other. 

A story I have heard over many decades is how women earn their own money and end up in debt. Right next to that story is the man who earns and saves, but who leads a very frugal life. If that man and that women were together then they would be living very different and I suspect much happier lives. But instead we have these two distinct stories, but why should they be so different?

Because they are, without realising it, living out their role, the one nature set out for them. That he should be the provider and that she should be the nurturer. But each is doing it wrong, he isn't supposed to be just looking after himself. She still needs to nurture but instead of doing it for her man and her children, she does it for herself, or her 'fur babies' or for society at large. None of which leaves her happy as it is like scratching an insatiable itch. What she is doing is not natural, it is an imitation of what nature desires.

The sad reality of independence is that it is a lie, something entirely unnatural. Men and women are supposed to be dependent upon each other, we are supposed to need and to desire each other. Independence means loneliness and loneliness is never winning.

How Did Dictator Dan Get Re-elected?

 Labor has won re-election here in Victoria under the leadership of Dictator Dan and you have to ask yourself how could such an outcome occur. I mean he has lead a government that locked people in their own homes for a total of 200 days. He banned outdoor activities, he shut down schools and businesses, he was okay with police shooting people with rubber bullets and we are in debt to about $160 Billion. Which is more debt then New South Wales, Queensland and Tasmania combined. So how did he and his government get re-elected?

In Victoria, although this is true in much of Australia, the main opposition party is rubbish. The Liberal Party once had values and it fought hard to uphold those values, but since the 1980's it has become harder and harder to tell the Liberal and Labor parties apart. Yes the rot really has been going on that long and it keeps getting worse. The problem is that they keep trying to out-left the left, which is impossible. People will always vote for the real Leftist over the fake Leftist.

There is also a leadership problem, the Parliamentary Liberal party is so small that there is no real leadership at all. Since 1999 each and every leader of the Liberal party in Victoria has been a total nonentity. I said to someone this week that for all Dictator Dan's faults he was a good politician because he was a Sociopath, but the leader of the Liberals was not a good politician, because he was not a Sociopath. Dictator Dan is a strong leader and the truth is that many people want that and they will go along with nearly anything as long as he is strong. 

There are also policy problems 



Trans Rights

Homosexual Rights


Global Warming

The truth is that on these and many other issues there is no substantial difference between the Labor and Liberal parties, they are the uniparty. So why should people vote in favour of something that is in no way different from it's opposition?

Labor has also benefited from mass immigration. It is a well established fact that immigrants vote to the Left. In fact they vote very far to the Left. Both the Liberals and Labor, in fact most of the political parties, support this policy, but Labor is the benefactor.  

A lot of people vote for Labor because it creates jobs in both the public and in the private sector. Of course these jobs are always paid for by the taxpayer, sooner or later. The public sector is expanded, government departments and other government bodies get funding to increase jobs. In the private sector Labor makes sure that it looks after the unions and the construction industry. We current have in Victoria what is called 'The Big Build', it is a series of big construction jobs that cost a lot of money and keeps a lot of people employed and looks after a lot of companies and union people. These people vote heavily for Labor and why wouldn't they?

A central feature of Democracy is bribing people with their own money and it won't stop for one simple reason, it keeps working.

Of course there is a major problem with this, it costs money, lots of money, which explains why Victoria is in so much debt. But debt is easy to ignore when there is still more money available. Here we are in a tried and true Labor situation. Parties of the Left are interested in the idea of wealth redistribution, but they have little to no interest in how that wealth is created. What they are interested in is spending money, not in making it. So they often get into debt because to them money is a form of magic, something that it is impossible to run out of. But of course there comes a point where debt becomes such a burden that it stops being magical and it needs to be paid back. We haven't reached that point in Victoria yet, but when we do it will hurt quite badly. Like it did in the 1990's when this exact same thing happened.

The good news of the election is that Labor lost about 7% of it's support, unfortunately that is off a very high base. The last election it got 57% of the vote, the highest it has ever been and that loss occurred in safe Labor seats. Which in the long term could spell very bad news for Labor. The Liberals lost about 2%, but a lot of votes, somewhere between 15-20% went to smaller parties. Now those parties are politically all over the place, Left, Right and Centrist, but they are not the major parties. That number does not include the Greens who got around 12% and should have around 6 seats, in the last Parliament they had 2.  

Over the past 30 years the two major parties share of the vote has declined from 90% to just under 70%. It still has a long way to go, but it is going.

Let's be honest this is a very disappointing result, it would have been glorious to see Dictator Dan defeated. But it is what it is and those of us who opposed him and everything he stood for shouldn't let this get us down. We must always be prepared for the fight and I think we will get one. So be ready.

Liberalism Versus Conservatism

Wednesday 23 November 2022

The Absolute Answer Is Wrong

Liberalism likes the absolute answer, it likes the idea that near at hand is an answer that will completely solve a problem. But that answer is always wrong, just as all universal answers, also known as a panacea, must be. Because most of life at every level is not about solving problems but about managing them. Most problems don't go away, they might take a rest, but they come back, they recur. Some never let up, they never go away even for an instant. So the idea that there exists an absolute answer can be very appealing. 

Whenever there is a gun crime the call goes out to ban all guns, Covid-19 we were told could be eliminated, Climate Change can be solved as long as we do as we are told. We are also told that domestic violence, bullying, racism, transphobia will be shown zero tolerance. For issue after issue the idea is pushed that there exists an absolute answer. That these issues not only can be solved but will be solved. That these issues will disappear. Liberalism has all the answers, including the ultimate answers. 

Most people still believe in the traditional place of man, that we are mere mortals who in the old language are 'fallen', but in the new language are 'messed up'. We are so prone to mistake and misdeed that the idea that we are capable of being perfect is ridiculous. But right there is also it's appeal, the idea that we can go from misfits to being the masters of the universe, that we can go from mere mortal to God. Liberalism believes in the absolute answer because like all of the ideologies it believes that man can and will become God. 

That gives it the confidence to be able to believe in absolute answers. No problem is too much for a God to solve. If Climate Change is a problem because we accidently changed the climate, no problem, all you need to do is to be able to change the climate on purpose. Change the entire climate by controlling the temperature. Why shouldn't a God be able to do that?

That is their solution to all problems and the fact that you and I don't agree, well that just means that we are the problem and not the solution. Which justifies why they think of us so badly and why they feel justified in doing whatever it takes to win. In doing whatever it takes to beat us. But we must always remember that what they want and what they believe is insane and that we are right to oppose them and their absolute answers.

The One Hundred And Sixteenth Month

Last month I was working and now I'm not. I have had the strangest experience I have ever had at a job. I was hired for a specific role because I had done that job in a different industry. Which means that I could do the job but I needed to know how this industry worked. When I started my boss told me that my job was to watch him and learn from him, so I sat across the desk from him and watched him do my job. But in reality he didn't want to train me because the company was his and he didn't want someone else touching his company. To him it wasn't a job it was a lifestyle and he didn't want me to interfere with that. I never thought that I would be paid the most I have ever been paid to watch someone else do my job, but all absurd things must come to an end and when it did I was both disappointed and relieved. 

My worst day this month was the 5th November when I had 49 visitors and my best day was the 7th November when I had 592 visitors. Overall I have had 3990 visitors this past month, this is also the first month that a country other than Australia or the United States has been at the top!
