SJWs and Post-Modern Insanity. U. Mass Amherst with Christina Hoff Sommers and Milo Yiannopolous.

I just wanted to share this video along with a few links as to why the SJW crowd, though small, is politically fierce and dangerous, particularly to men. The whole story can be found here.

For those of you who have never been involved in politics or political theory let me introduce you to Jean Jacques Rousseau. Rousseau is the father of modern social contract theory, especially in centralized states (meaning nation-states). He theorized that the class differences and other distinctions among mankind were created by possessions. One caveman had something another caveman wanted and thus the first murderer was born. He wanted for us to return to a state of subsistence living only so that we would no longer have cause to create distinctions among us. This concept was called by his followers (who called themselves “socialists”) “The Noble Savage.”

Why does this matter? Because it was the beginning of what is known as “egalitarianism,” which desires to make everyone equal despite the fact that distinctions among us are both good, and natural. Such egalitarianism is the basis of all left-leaning ideologies. The differences arise in who should receive equality first: women, then you’re a feminist; workers, then you’re a communist; minority racial groups, then you’re an affirmative actioneer; the poor, then you’re a social democrat; etc.

Social Justice Warriors want equality. But since equality doesn’t exist and no one can make it so then there is the Trotskyite concept of “perpetual revolution.” There is no “end-goal” for feminists, or any other left-egalitarian. That’s why it wasn’t good enough to pass laws for female equality in the workplace. Now women, who make different choices from men with regard to careers, must be preferred in the workplace. It is not sufficient to have laws protecting sexual minorities. They must be preferred to ensure their equality. So on and so forth.

Sommers book on the topic is called “The War Against Boys.”  (Summary here) It details how modern third-wave feminism is not interested in equality with men, but rather domination. They seek to achieve this goal through forms of socialism.

I’m not a huge fan of Steven Crowder (or any neoconservatives), but here he is.

I am not a conservative. I am a libertarian. I believe in property and life rights. But what I am not friendly to is using anti-free means of speech to silence anyone. That in itself requires a libertarian viewpoint.

I’m not here to say men are better. Women are our existential equals. But existential equality is the only equality we have. We have to be intellectual giants to fight intellectual

*Editor’s update*

Here is a video of the full debate that due to the constant disruptions is not extensive or thorough in the display of knowledge or thought. However that is largely due to the protestors. What can be gleaned are things I’ve already mentioned.
