Why do so many fathers in the Western World
live their lives in the comforting belief that they live in a Democracy which
has sexual equality -- until suddenly they lose their house and their children,
and find that they had been living in a dream-world ?
In a courtroom, everyone expects that there should be a lawyer for the Defence,
as well as a lawyer for the Prosecution. Why,
then, are Western countries teeming with tax-funded agencies that attack men,
with virtually no tax-funded agencies to defend men (or attack women) ?
The answer to both questions is the same: the West has been captured by
Feminist ideology, which is pro-women and anti-male. According to this ideology,
men are the oppressors, the enemy -- so it is a contradiction in terms for
men/fathers to be oppressed or disadvantaged. Therefore, the Establishment
sees no need to end the oppression that men/fathers experience through the
It is little use for us in the Men's/Fathers' Movement pinning
our hopes on law-changes, because:
The anti-male climate will allow only minimal, cosmetic changes that
The Law will continue to be administered in an anti-male spirit, because
of the prevailing ideology.
The Real Solution
This is the real solution, in my view:
Continue pressing for law changes -- not because
we think we will achieve much law-change in the medium term, but because
the process of trying to change the law allows
us to publicise man-hatred, and thereby to undermine it;
Pressing for changes in the personnel, in the
training of the personnel, and in other aspects of the system (police,
courts, prisons, probation service, etc.) which administers so-called
Most importantly, countering
anti-male propaganda with pro-male and even anti-female information, because
male self-esteem has been badly damaged in the West, which is now full
of wimps who will never argue with a woman.
This solution must be pursued using both theoretical
analysis and activist protests of various kinds. Theoretical analysis is vital,
because that is how we will get influential, thinking people onto our side.
Activist protests are also vital, because unless men/fathers are willing to
make an impact and make sacrifices for the cause, the media and the politicians
will not take us seriously.
