The greatest danger to the West is not Islam, nor is it unfettered immigration, poor economic policy, or even cyclists. The greatest danger to the West is our inability to respond to such external and internal threats. And the great modern inhibitor to decisive action is the feminization of our societies.

An insightful comment yesterday from regular commenter Allen on my post on women in politics.

There are five phases to this.
1. The beachhead, the one woman enters the field of play.
2. The reinforcement, she works so that more and more women are added.*
3. The consolidation, any competent men or women are slowly pushed out.
4. The meltdown, the now totally incompetent group comes under intense scrutiny for lack of ability. Misogyny is ruled as the culprit. It often includes tears.
5. The fratricide, sisters be damned, not when it means maintaining their own status as they are shown the door.

They are probably in the meltdown phase.

*Fully feminized men are kept on for appearances sakes, and it helps reinforce the belief structure the women have.

As far as the Turnbull cabinet is concerned I would have to agree with Allen’s assessment that they are in the meltdown phase. It should be noted, however, that phases two and three usually happen concurrently.

Here is an interesting post from Maggie’s Farm about women in medicine in the US from Dr. Joy Bliss. The comments are particularly thought provoking. It is just one small aspect of the ongoing feminization of our societies, to no discernible advantage. The only supposed upside given for the justification of more women is that more women is intrinsically good because it just is. It is as natural as the sun follows the moon.

One thing that I did not think to mention in yesterday’s post about women in cabinet supporting one another’s ideas is the contrary stance that would naturally arise from such a position. In other words, if they are supportive of women’s ideas due to their origin then they must by definition be unsupportive of men’s ideas for the same reason. Their sexualised political stance is not and cannot be one-dimensional. Such posturing does not exist in isolation.

That in Australia we have such a moribund state in the highest political office of the land speaks volumes for the nation’s ability to meet threats in a timely and logical manner. Islam is only succeeding now in the West because of our weakness, not from any strength in that most wretched of civilizational beliefs.

There is a general attitude in the manosphere that responding to women’s shit tests subsequently justifies them. I strongly disagree with this idea. Ignoring a shit test gives it power through the failure to act. The shit tests will as a consequence not only continue, but escalate. Some of the comments on Rollo’s latest piece are indicative of this posturing around men being “reactive” to the feminine imperative.

At the risk of being an iconoclast here at RM, harden the fuck up would ya? I get it, you’re making social commentary as that’s what you do here and it’s your purview. But you are starting to sound a shade butt hurt about all this FI shit Rollo.

Perhaps it’s an observation on behalf of the poor saps who don’t know better but really it’s demeaning to you I think Rollo.

You can’t ignore this shit and think that it won’t affect you or hope that it will go away. I find this criticism of Rollo to be particularly loathsome when you consider how much work and effort he has put into fighting the good fight. That this criticism comes from men who simultaneously posture at their own moral superiority due to their inability to act makes it even more pathetic.

Men in positions of responsibility have been ignoring the gradual encroachment of feminist attitudes for the past 50 years. There are individual shit tests and then there are national and even global shit tests. It is past time for men to start dealing with them in an authoritative manner. And it is past time for men to band together as a real band of brothers in the face of such an actual and present threat.
