Feminism as group strategy, Charles Jansen.
So far feminism can be defined by two essential aspects: a philosophy, mostly rooted in Marxism and postmodernism; and a group strategy. Both aspects are intertwined, which makes feminism difficult to explain in a plain, analytic, non-manipulative way. The sentence “feminism is the radical idea that women are human beings” doesn’t explain anything but mostly shocks the hearer and compels him to believe in key assumptions that remain implicit. Feminist philosophy is never explained in a systematic way. When one of its parts is explained, the explanation usually takes for granted the other key assumptions, which means that feminism ultimately rests on a logical circle. However, this logical defect doesn’t prevent it from being extremely efficient at stirring up resentment against men, especially Whites. A regular girl who starts absorbing feminist philosophy starts to perceive many masculine acts as morally wrong, going so far as equating unwanted male attention to rape and battery. By creating perceptions of “oppression” or undeserved “male privilege” or “White privilege,” feminist philosophy creates resentment; by upholding so-called “equality” and “progress”, it gives an aim, a telos, as well as a strong motivation to act against the perceived injustices.
While the feminist worldview may appear silly and forced, particularly since it uses sophistry and groundless accusations to discard evidence-based science, it has grown up with incredible success, to the point of determining–along with other anti-White stuff–what deserves respect or scorn. Asking for “tolerance,” then pretending to care about “justice” and finally shutting up any different voice by calling to “consensus”–i.e. think and talk within our framework or go die while we make history–such is the infamous pattern that leads to our present-day situation.
On one hand, feminism is serious because of its domination in the academics and the mainstream media. It is serious because mastering public respectability implies influence over a huge crowd. As Gamergate has shown, serious feminists organize to steer the media and organize fluxes of money even in fields like gaming that were previously safe. In academia, it will become harder and harder to simply be a White guy. “Affirmative action” policies will get you more and more excluded from public events while your decent teachers will have to kneel to feminist networks. One can recognize a mortal enemy in the person or group who says “change” or “progress” to mean our dispossession. The harder to swallow part is when you evolve within an academic environment: money here is limited, you are depending on the system, and while the cake is shrinking, the larger parts go to influence networks.
