Fear: Weapon of the Witch hunters
By Rod Van Mechelen
I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain. -- Frank Herbert, Dune, 40th Anniversary Edition (Dune Chronicles, Book 1)
Hate Begets Hate
1992 Bellevue, Wash. - In the name of righteousness, they spread fear. In the name of decency and our desire to do good, they nurture hate. Human history is rife with witch hunts, where all who do not conform to the community's standards of politically correct behavior are subject to persecution by the witch hunters, who find, feed upon, and cultivate whatever fear is most accessible to their malevolent ministrations. (Sex in History, Reay Tannahill, p 274)
Beginning in the 1970's, able pop feminist demagogues found that, for an intelligent woman willing to trade her integrity for power, it was easy to take the message of feminism and pervert it to promote a misandristic agenda wherein all men were to be feared, and the men who do not propitiate to this fear, hated much as women were during the 15th century northern French witchhunts. (Witchcraze: A New History of the European Witch Hunts, by Anne Llewellyn Barstow, 1994, page 4)
Today, thanks to the pop-feminist witch hunters, distrust of men, according to the 1990 Roper Survey, is at an all-time historical high as women, who expect men to conform to their images of the ideal man, repudiate most men. In the same way the witch hunters of 15th and 16th century Europe condemned their "witches," so pop feminists today have successfully damned men.
So many women fear men because pop feminists have taught them to: "Women are barraged with reports about crime against women." (Women & Crime, Sue Browder, New Woman, April 1991, p 62) Statistics indicate it is far more dangerous to drive a car, drive a garbage turck, or be a man than a woman, and men know this. Women know this, too, but attribute it to violent men victimizing one another.
Every person who parrots this pop-feminist line needs to know one more thing: fear begets fear, hate engenders hate. Support, sustain, promote and cultivate this fear and hatred of men, and when the "masculinist" witch hunters arise in response, whose hopes and dreams will be sacrificed upon the witch hunters' altar of fear, then?
