Little Hope for the Economy

Oh the Oppressed

The hatred of men is quite common in feminist circles. But now the loathing of family is oozing to the surface.

Family is the social institution that ensures unpaid reproductive and domestic labour, and is concerned with initiating a new generation into the gendered (as I analyzed here) and classed social set-up. Not only that, families prevent money the flow of money from the rich to the poor: wealth accumulates in a few hands to be squandered on and bequeathed to the next generation, and that makes families as economic units selfishly pursue their own interests and become especially prone to consumerism.

So it makes sense to say that if the world has to change, reproduction has to go. Of course there is an ecological responsibility to reduce the human population, or even end it , and a lot was said about that on the blogosphere recently (here, and here), but an ecological consciousness is not how I came to my decision to remain child-free.

"Ecological consciousness"!? What the hell is that?

There is something deeply wrong with these people.

""Ecological consciousness"!? What the hell is that?"

When the human neocortex turns into a layer of diverse ecosystem of topsoil including many microbial and insect species.

It seems that acquiring wealth, whether to "squander" or save for the kids is wrong. I wonder if that includes stone tools and loin cloths. Are such meager impliments moral or are we supposed to lie naked on the ground for our whole lives and eat moss?

Isaac, you're starting to realize now that the political left is no better than Islamism. You will notice, if you read their writings, that things like "women's rights" mean something very different from what you would normally think they mean.

The reason I oppose "gay rights," for example, is that I know that what "gay rights" really means is that employers won't have the right to choose to not hire homosexuals, free speech will be curtailed by "hate crime" laws, churches will have to perform gay marriages or no marriages at all, etc.
