At a time when femininity has lost its value and motherhood has become a dirty word, exposing the feminist movement as nothing more than a top-down exploitation of the female vote is vital to reclaiming true “female empowerment”. Most recently, the actress Kirsten Dunst has come under fire for expressing her opinion that it is still OK for women to embody traditional gender roles and depend on a man from time to time.
Here’s are her sentiments:
“I feel like the feminine has been a little undervalued. We all have to get our own jobs and make our own money, but staying at home, nurturing, being the mother, cooking — it’s a valuable thing my mom created. And sometimes, you need your knight in shining armor. I’m sorry. You need a man to be a man and a woman to be a woman. That’s why relationships work.”
Cue the militant-feminist outrage from Jezebel…. while Lee Ann McAdoo helps us see through the B.S.
Red Pill: The Statistical Frauds of Feminism
The red pill and its opposite, the blue pill, are pop culture symbols representing the choice between embracing the sometimes painful truth of reality (red pill) and the ignorance of illusion (blue pill). The terms, popularized in science fiction culture, derive from the 1999 film ‘The Matrix’.
Where is the feminist and equal-rights outrage over this government measure!? Oh right, it only matters when WOMEN are being discriminated against.
Russian men aged 16 to 60 entering Ukraine without their families will only be allowed in if they have close relatives or an invitation, according to Ukrainian officials. Previously, all Russians could travel to Ukraine with just their internal IDs.
Editor’s Note: If men continue to be placed on the doo-doo end of the stick in the breakdown of American relationships, where good men are forced to hand over half of their assets and property to a woman who suddenly feels like things are “not working out” or that we’re “growing apart” after a few years, then the ranks of single cat-ladies and dog-ladies are going to continue to swell!
While the US birthrate continues dropping, the number of pets in American homes is climbing to new highs. Since 2001, the population of small dogs alone has climbed to over 25 million. Figures like these have managed to concern some sociologists, who fear that Americans are spending too much money on animals, a projected $60 billion in 2014, and not focusing on our families.
Back in 2003, TIME Magazine actually thought that the unnamed U.S. soldier qualified to be “person of the year”. Why? For their valiant service in volunteering for the military and helping to invade and destroy a sovereign nation (Iraq) which had never harmed or threatened the United States of America.
(Bonus Factoid: The WMD wasn’t there)
The rule of law, Hayek wrote, is “a rule concerning what the law ought to be”: It ought to be general and abstract; equally applied, with legal privileges for none; certain, not subject to arbitrary changes; and just. In this Learn Liberty Academy, Andrew Morriss sets sail to show how the law of the Cayman Islands conforms with Hayek’s ideals, how it got that way through astute political entrepreneurship, and how the world at large benefits from its legal wisdom.

The good times are rolling. By now every analyst worth his or her salt has made a point of waxing indignant in the mainstream Anglo-American media over the “criminality” of the Russian intervention in Crimea. The media is not in the least deterred by the fact that the Russian operation took place with next to no loss of life. It’s been a season for name calling and for exhibiting moral superiority, for crying foul and denouncing President Vladimir Putin as a bully and a thug. The more inventive the writer, the more over-the-top the epithet of abuse has been.
Along with all the invective, the public has been treated to sage speculations regarding the inner workings of President Putin’ s mind (e.g. “A View inside the Mind of Vladimir Putin,” NPR, March 4 2014, “3 Presidents and a Riddle Named Putin,” New York Times, 24 March 23, 2014, “Ukraine and Crimea: what is Putin thinking?” Guardian, March 23, 2014 and so on).
The re-integration of Crimea into the Russian Federation has been an unexpected bonanza for reporters and analysts in the mainstream Anglo-American news media. It has been a field day for the commentariat in particular, who are enviably free from the constraints of neutrality and objectivity. The Russian action in Crimea has gifted them with a pretext for seizing the moral high ground and proclaiming the superiority of Western political values and institutions. The post-Soviet world order is one in which the US-EU axis has repeatedly flouted international law with impunity.
Editor’s Note: You will not find a story like this on any mainstream news channel. But if the roles were reversed, with Palestinians injuring Israeli Jews within a Synagogue complex, this would be among the biggest news stories in the world.
Israeli forces have shot and wounded at least 30 Palestinians in the al-Aqsa Mosque in Jerusalem al-Quds.
Local sources say clashes erupted in the mosque compound when Israeli settlers entered the holy site. Witnesses say Israeli troops raided the mosque to protect the settlers. They say the forces fired tear gas and rubber bullets to disperse the worshipers.
