The word that all progressives are desperately trying to avoid is Matriarchy, which is where we are now. Shall we refine it even more?
Let’s deal with the other polar extreme, Patriarchy first:
All agreed it’s the last thing we need, like a hole in the head? But everything which needs to be written has been.
Translated into the family, it’s the martinet father of Victorian legend, the stern disciplinarian, unbending and truth is that many of us aging curmudgeons have shifted off the centre line towards this somewhat, particularly in society’s slew the other way towards Matriarchy.
On the surface, Matriarchy is all love and kindness to all and good things and everyone happy and the mass murderer embraced just as much in his bloodlust as the little bird with the broken wing, the gay mafia just as much as the normal family and so on.
In fact, there is a compulsion behind the all-embracing, which tolerates good and bad equally out of the female love-all mind and that intolerance, if unchecked, consumes and asphyxiates a society. It even has men emasculated and becoming women:
A man can be a man and still love his dog. What he doesn’t need to do is become a simpering heap of uselessness, rolling around on the fireside rug with his dog, crying that there is a hair out of place. Or being so sensitive that he’s not sure if he’s male or female.
The model which government so lovingly embraces these days is not that of the mother – and so I’d agree that perhaps Matriarchy is the wrong term. A better term is Hysterical Teenage Girl.
Pretty on the outside, just as the words fairness, tolerance, diversity are noble and fine words we should all aspire to but just like the teenage girl, society plays its favourites. The teenage girl will be a total bitch to her parents, to siblings, to other girls, to teachers but will then shriek when she sees a bird with a broken wing or wants to bring home every stray cat in the neighbourhood and when it comes to love …
She falls 100% totally in love with the unworthy recipient, some spotty herbert who’s out for what he can get … and no entreaties by parents or friends will budge her. Coz a teenage girl has something no other demographic does – the ability to totally unreasoningly support to the hilt the indefensible and unsupportable, as every father with a daughter has known.
Translated into society, this is the hysterical, fear-everyone, act intolerantly to the voice of reason, ban everything you don’t like, steal of him over here to pay your favourite demographic over here … and so on.
The model does, I believe, hold up and this is Them’s ultimate joke. In fact, I’d humbly suggest it’s the Almighty’s joke on society too – to put into the most divine looking females the most obnoxious and trying characters.
Playing the Almighty’s advocate for a moment, there’s actually good reason behind that – if she’s so obnoxious,so shriekingly, hormonally impossible and unpleasant as a human being, then it is a form of protection for her and in numbers, the monstrous regiment of teenage girls is a formidable proposition.
Unfortunately, as we’ve seen in Rotherham, Them has that one covered too. Isolate in a room and pick off at will is the method. Alice Gross. Where is the father? Where is the male who could have prevented this? Either not there or else joining in these days.
And that is the model by which society operates today – hysterically running from one thing to another [food fads], sudden about turns [Cameron] and unleashing that which should be kept at home near mother [the teenage girl] out upon society at large [false rape charges and real rape charges, plus Rotherham].
Plus utter intolerance in very real terms, for non-favourites or the out of favour:
And where did these ideas come from? From the university – from the professors, lecturers, the feminist reading lists which exclude all sound reading.
That’s our society today, with All-Bahar-Mustafa shortlists for any new job. So not Patriarchy, no. Not Matriarchy, no, for even a Matriarch has the reason of years behind her.
No, we are living in Teenagegirlocracy. Who are the heroes and heroines? Kim Kardashian, Miley Cyrus, Justin Bieber.
If there is any truth, verity, whatsoever in the model of society now being Teenagegirlocracy, then what sort of a coup is that for Them? Pick the worst, the most useless, section of society, in need of round the clock protection … and make it your basis for governance.
I see Alinsky and Hobsbawm chuckling in their spittle.
Lastly, an allegory for society:
Xenia Ignatyeva took a selfie from a bridge 28 feet off the ground to impress her friends. The 17-year-old Russian girl lost her balance and fell on a cable, which tragically electrocuted her.
