We have the same cameras here. You’ll see them in particular at intersections. I do not know to what extent the software and operating systems capture your information and the media does not look into it for some reason. Sometimes, when I’m sitting there wondering why I am waiting so long at the light and there is no traffic at all moving crosswise, I flip the camera the bird. Or when I am stopped at every intersection as I move along alone on the road in the very early morning and it feels like my progress is being slowed for some reason, I flip the camera the bird. I’m sure they have a file on me.

I believe there is a valid form and history to the feminist movement but that there is a flaw in contemporary feminism. From my perspective and experiences, contemporary feminism is uncivilized.

Contemporary feminism is uncivilized because contemporary feminism does not police itself.

Today feminism is an uncontrolled form of media-incited mass hysteria.

Contemporary feminism is reactionary.

The objective of contemporary feminism is to lash out.

Almost all of my experiences lead me to conclude that there is a mantra in contemporary feminism. All that I see on display in the media, in news stories involving feminism of any extent is that there is indeed a mantra.

That mantra is: use what you got to get what you want. It is use what you got to get what you want followed by the common but perhaps silent affirmation, “You go girl!”

It does not matter whose life is destroyed. No man is safe from the hysteria. It is often unity for the sake of gain, not for the sake of what is right. False accusations are tools of advancement. Political parties parade contemporary feminists in front of the camera to get votes. The entire country must endure every trial and tribulation in the mass media of contemporary feminism. Mole hills are turned into mountains. Contemporary feminism is, get even with any man whether he is innocent or not.

It is vengeance unchecked. Contemporary feminism IS uncivilized.

Contemporary feminism is socially destructive.

Contemporary feminism is, all men are the same.

Contemporary feminism is, we can do anything men can do and do it better, until it comes time to dig ditches under the hot sun with a hand shovel and then contemporary feminism is a Cheshire grin slinking away and suggesting “My what big biceps you men have.”

Contemporary feminism is a shrieking, raging beast cloaked in mass victimization.

Contemporary feminism is provocative.

Contemporary feminism is explicit displays of femininity.

Contemporary feminism is the temptress who then claims to be the victim.

Contemporary feminism is a fashion statement.

Contemporary feminism is a shrewd corporate marketing campaign.

Contemporary feminism is good for ratings.

Contemporary feminism is a right of passage.

Contemporary feminism is, I’m daddy’s little girl, even though I’m 30 and I ought to know better.

Contemporary feminism is often a cleverly designed trap.

Contemporary feminism is a poisonous militancy.

Contemporary feminism is, shout all at once and let no man be heard above it and defend himself from the common rage of womanhood. And make sure there are cameras there.

Contemporary feminism is guilty until proven innocent.

Contemporary feminism is totalitarian.

Ultimately to me though the reason contemporary feminism is uncivilized is because contemporary feminism does not police itself. It refuses.

When I discuss why I think contemporary feminism is uncivilized with an avowed feminist, though of a different generation, she agrees with me. And she tells me her definitions of what a true feminist is. They are different than that of a contemporary feminist. I am made to know that.

But when I say I believe feminism is in danger of delegitimizing itself because feminism does not police itself, she raises her voice and her response is that it would be impossible!

The avowed feminist refuses, vehemently refuses to believe any attempt to police contemporary feminism by a feminist would work. She utterly refuses. This to me indicates I am correct in the matter. It is her resistance to even make any attempt to solve a problem to which she agrees exists that proves my point. I do not mean to indict her here, but there is a clear indication in her response of what I describe. It is impossible! for us to police ourselves. Impossible!

Contemporary feminism is out of control.

Contemporary feminism is a refusal of feminist leadership to control its ranks, to even make an attempt to control its ranks.

When I respond with “well what if there were a strong female in the national spotlight who recognized that the feminist movement of today was an irresponsible, anti-social and socially destructive movement and she became the standard bearer for contemporary feminism?” the avowed feminist tries to steer the conversation immediately away from the idea of such a potential feminist leader, as if such a solution would put an end to the slaughter wrought by contemporary feminism upon the national psyche, or such a woman does not and could not, must not ever exist, or were she to arrive in such a world she would immediately be exiled by contemporary feminists everywhere. Impossible! Impossible! No! The fear that such a female standard bearer of feminism could exist is evident in even the avowed feminist’s voice. Ah yes, there it is, a clearly evident and common thread in the feminism of then and contemporary feminism.

This revelation of the avowed feminist that such a solution to police contemporary feminism by feminists themselves would be “impossible!” of course would suggest to me that all feminism is illegitimate were I not to in fact believe that there is a certain legitimacy already in feminism given its historical context and objectives.

But we are talking here of “contemporary feminism,” something men are forbidden to even ruminate upon! It is forbidden! What I am doing here, it is not allowed. Even though it involves defining the behavior more often than not of men, only women can be involved in such a definition. Who dare allow men to get involved!? All the while there is an open season advertised daily in the mass media on masculinity.

So why then don’t contemporary feminists police themselves and their behavior? What is there to lose in the legitimacy of self-control?

When I say that men, though clearly not perfect (all feminists are by default perfect you are to know, by the way), men do a pretty good job of keeping themselves in check and their latitude for what once was considered masculine behavior is increasingly diminished by feminism, along with the support of a pandering mass media whose advertisers want the female’s discretionary income. Well, the feminist suggests, that is excusable.

Contemporary feminism is a plainly evident double standard.

Contemporary feminism IS indeed uncivilized. It is uncivilized because it refuses to police itself. Feminism is not a movement any longer, it is a psychological aberration en masse. It is a derivation of collectivism, sponsored by corporatism.

Contemporary feminism is a form of mass psychological transference.

Contemporary feminism is, if one woman has a feeling about something or someone, a man perhaps, all other women must share that identical feeling and all men are equally guilty by default.

Contemporary feminism is a forced thought process. It is an offshoot of socialism. It is a communist re-education camp run and populated by one sex.

Contemporary feminism is a bestial, stampeding herd.

It is unchecked sexism in the reverse, where when men often lock each other up for such anti-social transgressions, women reward themselves.

You go girl! Or you get even. It is your duty. Let no man be safe from contemporary feminism.

Contemporary feminism is uncivilized.

The overwhelming support for the legalization of marijuana as well as the rapidly expanding national movement to legalize marijuana for adult use at the state level indicates that whatever party that supports the legalization of marijuana nationally will win the next presidential election. As a “single” issue for voters, the legalization of marijuana will supersede the other two major single issues of abortion and gun rights.

If you are afraid of socialized medicine, all the country has to do is to start regulating health care correctly once again.

Health care in America was much less socialized prior to Reagan deregulating health care. Ever since health care was deregulated, the socialized systems designed to pay for health care in America, Medicare and Medicaid, have expanded exponentially now that regulations have been dismantled. Prices have soared way beyond what the average citizen can pay out-of-pocket, something that was quite common prior to Reagan deregulating health care.

If you are afraid of seeing a socialized system of health care in America, then we must begin regulating health care correctly again. That’s all that is needed.

All of the rhetoric about socialized medicine coming from both parties is a false narrative designed to steer you away from the subject of a health care system that is properly regulated and both parties are involved in that misdirection.

The inability of our elected who claim to be conservative even when in the majority to curtail the activity of or control the size and cost of all levels of government indicates that the government itself has at once burst from the reins of democracy.

This is a reprint of an observation published in 2018

The problem with a political system that caters primarily to two parties, in America’s case it is the Democrats and the Republicans, is that the public loses out, almost always.

Though the two parties as I’ve mentioned appear to be in opposition, it is in fact the opposing actions of the two parties that is most damaging to the rights of the American public.

The two opposing parties constantly working against each other, as they will to gain superiority over the other, create a pincering or scissoring effect upon the public like the two opposing cutting blades of a scissors, coming together on each issue, slicing at it and simultaneously shearing away at the constitutional rights of the American public simply so that the parties can win an election or maintain control of the elected body.

What is the solution? I think it is necessary to have a strong third party come on line, a 3rd party that prevents the shearing away of the constitutional rights of the American public simply for political party gain. It must be done before what remains of the constitution is left in little shreds and snippets of scissored paper on the capital floor that nobody can piece back together once the damage is done.

One of the disappointing aspects of the legalization of marijuana at the state level and not the federal level is that banks, credit unions, and other financial institutions are unable to accept funds from businesses that are involved in the sale and production of the marijuana that is grown and sold in states where marijuana is legal.

In other words, if you are in the business of growing or selling marijuana, you can only transact business in cash and you are not eligible to bank your proceeds or to obtain capital (loans) or any of the other services banks and other financial institutions provide.

But at the same time, the big three automakers and other American industrialists through the guise of NAFTA can have their cars manufactured and assembled in countries such as Canada or Mexico where marijuana is legal or has been decriminalized.

To me that demonstrates a complete disregard for the will of the people by our elected.

There’s more.

Not only do Americans lose those manufacturing jobs to corporations that utilize the labor of countries that have legalized marijuana, our own country enforces draconian laws upon our citizenry and makes it easier for them to lose those jobs to Canada and Mexico at the same time.

If that does not typify a form of political betrayal by our elected on the most grand scale upon the entire country, I don’t know what does.

It is time to legalize marijuana in America.
