The contrast between the way men and women differ seems based more upon the reflected viewpoints of a given era under discussion. The fiction that the institutional ‘WE’ are encouraged to currently uphold has them at parity with one and each other except of course women are smarter, more responsible, more athletic, and more on top of things in general. Sort of like your mom when you were five years old. Of course dad didn’t factor in those more traditional times because he was too busy out there sweating the amassment of bucks or in so many more immediately recent cases, just not there to begin with.
“Hey, nobody told you to take those two extra shots of Jaeger and get irrevocably knocked up!”
I know that is the cynical view but I am just plain tired of the constant barrage of negativity that passes for social reflection Primetime TV. If you want to hear what that anachronism of popular consent, the laugh track, sounds like, it’s the perfect place! Consider in the sixties it was an analyst that was being shoved down your throat as normal. Now it’s a therapist. Who after all is kidding who. The same old Fabian doctrine ‘Commie’ badge of honor. Virtual institutional sex and the misapplication of gun violence coming first and foremost from the boob tube. Where do you think the weakest of minds learn their best tricks?
Here life hovers upon the associative notion that no one single individual can or will be allowed to fend for themselves. This would be too Darwinian in the sense of the proverbial, ‘laissez faire’. The weak and the weak minded would be instantly culled from the tribe by the more mentally fit and able. Instead welcome to the membership of the faceless proletariat where more of your time is currently spent kowtowing to abstract conventions of proper social etiquette. Who cares what the natural habitat just outside your window panes is like? You’ll never have to go outside!
So what is life in this modern society all about? And what is considered an issue of importance. One’s fluid interdependence must be on top of the list. The more friends that like you, the better the likelihood that you will have the things you need to sustain you by virtue of your popularity. Consider your life as one of those tranquil tide machines that hypnotically swings back and forth seemingly endlessly. But of course, life seems more a waiting game that has one ever ready to offer their talents in a perpetual state of hopeful availability to the vagaries of fortune and fame. This is a far cry from the notion of hunter gather’s that those schooled by public education are prompted to admire.
Yet a city bound existence entails more restraint as a result of implied consensus than the application of a more aggressive form of curiosity. A ‘go getter’ reforms the immediate society around his opinions but that conflicts with the notion of surrendering one’s immediate desires to socially conscious group demands. The person that sets the agenda of course is a ‘go getter’ who no doubt is teaching us some sort of morally objective lesson for our own good. Think of a Jack Russell terrier nipping at the heels of a herd of fractious sheep. So in that age old honored tradition of Goyim, the big ‘WE’ are expected to say “baaaaahh” every time that getting up out of one’s easy chair is mildly suggested in another overly sanctimonious PSA by the well-funded pundits of the popular airwaves. Just keep reciting. “ain’t it a shame”, for the eternity of a human lifetime and get back to paying those ever mounting bills instead of wondering why ith everyone working both male and female, and anywhere in-between, that the game is rigged so that absolutely no one can get ahead.
