Russian-BorisKustodiyev1918One-hundred years after a Marx inspired revolution replaced the Romanovs with Marx inspired anarchy and tyranny — the rebellion continues, with false notions of freedom and rights ushering in domination, division, and destruction, as seen in the Arab Spring and Black Lives Movement. Thus, to paraphrase George Bernard Shaw: “while throwing off the bonds of convention, and standing free from all allegiance to established religion, law, order, patriotism, and learning, she promptly uses her freedom to put on a heavier set of chains.”

Feminists took to the streets to make their feelings for President Trump known, and to assert various ‘rights’ they feel are endangered by a Trump administration.

American style feminism, with its material power orientation, is a movement of destruction (abortion) and domination (“A Woman’s Place Is In Your Face!”) — that fails to understand/embrace the true nature of women’s power — and is ultimately nihilistic and self-defeating for persons and society.

Really the way to find one’s self is in the free gift of self, not the assertion of self.

Leaning heavily on Marxist disruption, America’s preferential treatment of women, minorities, and the LGBT community, has in recent years led to a divided nation — and a vicious cycle of underdeveloped persons — frothing in a sea of disorder and hatred, and leading to nothingness rather than a flourishing society.

Especially notable in this election was the extent to which personal identity played a role in how people voted — overwhelming every other issue, program, or policy consideration. That said, if Hillary Clinton had been a better (healthier) woman many who voted for Trump would have voted for her. Unfortunately, her view of reality and actions therewith have been unhealthful for women and the country.

Addressing the UN this week, President Obama said “I draw strength from young Americans…who are remaking our nation once again, who are unconstrained by old habits and old conventions and unencumbered by what is, but are instead ready to seize what ought to be.”

One probably wouldn’t want to fly in an airplane with a pilot who had such a view of reality. And yet the man who sees himself as the most important person in the world, and is acting on it, has such a view — while the wreckage piles up, from the burning of Charlotte to the burning of Syria.

President Obama’s legacy will be a nation and world more divided and self-destructing than when he came into office, with his untruthfulness a key factor.
