As this essay begins, one should be at once grieved and saddened by the state of affairs for Men in the United States of America. For the reality of the situation is this - the American Male is under attack: psychologically, emotionally, and spiritually, by the very people whom he was created to protect - American Women.
American Women are constantly overheard to talk about "why there are no more good Men left," or "why don't Men commit," or "why do Men lie and then leave," or even "why are Men so irresponsible?"
It didn't use to be like this - but for the past 50 or so years, Feminist legislation and liberal dogma has completely ruined this country. America's enemies have invested trillions of dollars in Feminist groups and legislators which make it very easy to destroy, defame, and emasculate the American Male.
Our educational system supports this agenda.
Every single admirable quality of the American Male is now suspect - responsibility means inflexibility, strength of character equates to stubborness, standing one's ground equals abusiveness, courage and fearlessness is now insanity.
If a Man exhibits any of these qualities to his wife or girlfriend, she can easily destroy him by lying about abuse, rape, verbal haranguing, anything, and he can be arrested, prosecuted, and convicted of a crime.
Even if she is lying, and has a pattern of lying, because the "system" does not want to take any chances.
What Man is crazy enough to risk that? What Man would put himself in that position of trust, when he should know that the only thing standing between him and a jail cell is the fickle whim of a Woman who just might get angry one day (whether justified or not)?
Men are forced to live in one of two ways - either as a coward by avoiding relationships with Women completely, or as an emotional thief, stealing sex and love on the sly, and then leaving when the relationship gets too intense and meaningful. The only types of Men who have nothing to worry about are the effeminate ones that lack any Manly traits whatsover, and these are the Men that Women are forced to marry.
The relationship for Men has become similar to sticking one's head into the lion's mouth, with the possibility of never being able to escape, if the jaws suddenly snap shut.
In the current state of the law, Men can and will, with just an allegation, lose all of their money, their kids, their house, their job, their respect, their self-respect, their friends, their self-esteem, their standing in their community, their families, and above all, their souls if a Woman simply decides, one day, in one minute, to snap and cast him into the abyss of hell by calling 911 and lying.
No Police Officer called to the scene will ever take the chance of not arresting someone in a domestic dispute, and unfortunately, the statistics point out that it is overwhelmingly the Man in the relationship who is arrested, and not the Woman.
Does this mean that there are no Women out there who beat, abuse, or harass Men in relationships? Of course not. But that is unfortunately proof positive that the system is not working well.
Is it really worth the risk for Men to get into a relationship?
It is a basic cornerstone that the building blocks of a healthy, successful, prosperous, and strong nation are, in this order: (1) healthy individuals which make up (2) healthy relationships which in turn create (3) healthy families which beget (4) healthy communities which forge (5) healthy towns which in turn generate (6) healthy cities creating (7) healthy states which ultimately make a (8) healthy nation or country.
How easy is it for our enemies, both foreign and domestic, to destroy our entire country's entire strength, health, longevity, self-reliance, morale, and confidence, when all they have to do is pit this nation's Women against its Men through horribly unfair legislation, unbalanced favoritism of the legal system in favor of its Women against Men, castigating all of the valuable characteristics of Men that were once and formally prized, as now border-line criminal conduct, and striking at the very roots of the tree of this country?
This problem has therefore become a National Security issue, and should be treated as such by our Government.
Our country's lives are at stake. No wonder every single foreign war we have entered into over the past 50 years has progressively been less and less effective, where our foreign enemies have consistently made mince-meat out of our Armed Forces, and we can no longer win a difficult war with decisiveness and efficiency. The Men of our Armed Forces are no match psychologically, emotionally, or spiritually for most Men of foreign countries, who have never had to deal with or be emasculated by this scurrilous baggage. No wonder that Men from foreign countries routinely laugh at the effeminate nature of American Men who have been degraded out of fear, obedience, and the shame of being Men from our Women, who have made us feel guilty for just being Men. Metrosexual Men have become de rigeur, and flagrant homosexuality and feminine behavior in heterosexual Men is welcomed, nourished, safe, and politically correct in American society and in the eyes of the law. Manly behavior is not.
No one supports abuse by Men, or by anyone.
But the system is totally broken, and good Men are getting destroyed. Too many Men are getting ruined by a system run amok, where even the most base, lying, evil, insecure, mercenary, violent, money-hungry, and selfish Women, some of whom have been officially proven to be so, can easily destroy a Man of proven great character, strength, reputation, honor, and respect.
It happens thousands of times a day in this country. With regards to any type of allegation of Domestic Violence (what these types of cases are called), any Police Officer, Prosecutor, or Lawyer will tell you that a Woman's word is 100 times stronger than a Man's, even in the absence of any evidence to substantiate this. And the Police Officer will blindly arrest, and the Prosecutor will doggedly pursue, that Man.
The question is why?
And when will we as a young nation recognize that even Ancient Rome fell because of this type of internal moral and spiritual decay of the qualities that made Men strong, their families strong, and ultimately, their nation, strong.
