Original title of this post: End of Supply Chain = End of Feminism? Another COVID-19 Post. Discuss. It won’t publish under that title. Hmm.
This is the latest COVID-19 video by conspiratard and admitted paranoid schizophrenic* Clif High. I say that to get the introduction and obvious credibility issue out of the way in the beginning. I keep my eye on many channels and try to take in as much information as I can and use my own discernment the best I can when trying to figure out just what the fuck is happening. Clif High has ideas and cites sources that I find interesting. In this vid, one of the things that caught my ear is his observation that if and when the supply chain ends, and that could happen permanently due to the now-global COVID-19 pandemic, it will mean the beginning of a “male ethos” and the end of feminism, where feminism is more or less completely dependent on the availability of calories (for one thing) and gathering publicly in groups (for another).
He also portends the end of SJWs or social justice warrior type behaviors and activities which are dependent on the same things. Both SJW and feminist activities are also dependent on the court system, but as he notes, the court system is pretty much shut down right now. He doesn’t think the courts will come back online anytime soon if ever and he might be right about that.
Of course, these observations have been made by feminists before who have noted that without electricity (for example) modern women wouldn’t have the energy or leisure time to pursue feminism, which for most feminists is basically a hobby they work on when they aren’t cleaning up after, sexually servicing, and otherwise being actively oppressed by men. In the case of women and feminism, the electric washing machine and vacuum cleaner (for example) have freed up women’s precious resources of energy and time, which some choose to dedicate to the “cause” of feminism. For women who don’t practice domesticity or who aren’t busy cleaning up after men either personally or professionally or both, it’s tough to argue that the easy availability of calories — meaning food — hasn’t been instrumental in allowing them to choose how to spend their time, including engaging in feminist pursuits, instead of foraging or hunting for nourishment.
Clif High sees the writing on the wall with regard to feminism, if the supply chains are going to be affected permanently or long term. Time will tell what the effects will be on supply chains, but as someone who has been involved with the radical feminist community for many years I think it’s worth thinking and talking about what the likely effects will be on the movement (such as it is) and on women if things continue down this road. Of course, it’s possible that things will come back online in weeks to months like we are being told. Possible, yes. Likely? I don’t know.
I’ve thought for a long time that if women didn’t lie to ourselves and each other about men and what they do and what they are, that things would be better for us than they are now. As it is, we are all bogged down with betrayal-trauma when men rape and abuse girls and women, where betrayal trauma comes from being harmed/traumatized by someone we trust, or at the very least someone on whom we are reliant for care and survival. Theoretically then, if women did not trust men, and/or if we were not reliant on men for care and survival, whatever they did to us wouldn’t be as bad as what they do to us now. Their harming us would still be harmful but we would not suffer the additional harm of having been betrayed. That’s important, I think.
If men were just seen as the violent rapists and abusers they pretty much universally are, meaning, cross-culturally and across time, we would have no reason to trust them. Being captured and abused by one might be less of a brainstem-rattling life-changing event and more one that was seen as unfortunate but basically inevitable. Instead of “But I trusted him!” and similar betrayal language, and all the negative fallout from that emotional and physical place of being within striking distance without emotional or physical protection, because we won’t admit we need it, perhaps rape would be more a case of “Damn, one got me!” on par with, perhaps, being attacked by a wild animal. Maybe the fallout from that place would be less. Less heartbreaking. Less confusing. Maybe if women didn’t lie about what men are, we wouldn’t simultaneously suffer the betrayal of women placing other girls and women in harms’ way by exposing them to men and relying on them for our care and comfort in the first place.
Of course, the liberal feminists Clif High is obviously talking about would never do that, meaning stop lying and start telling the truth about men, preferring to beg men for crumbs in men’s courts for example. If Western civilization is about to drastically change, as Clif High believes, it’s possible that while liberal feminism and SJWs will disappear, the radicals will have more options. Possible, yes. Likely? You tell me.
*He has said publicly that he “used to be” paranoid schizophrenic, whatever that means. Personally, I think even if he or anyone is “crazy” it doesn’t necessarily mean they are wrong.
