Thoughts on the self-defeating quality in the post-WWII American male – the coming of the ‘nothing male’

Here’s a thought that came to me: Way back in the 1980’s I was often struck by a particular quality in the post WWII male.  Basically, they had what appeared to me as a self-defeating quality.  They naturally ‘handed’ this attitude down to … Continue reading

Thoughts on some remarks from a speech by Hillary Clinton – more aspects of feminism

Some thoughts on the possible nature and origin of anti-Semitism???

Some time ago I recalled something that happened several decades ago that might have revealed a little about the nature and origin of anti-Semitism.  Keep in mind that I am no expert on Judaism or anti-Semiticism.  What I describe below is just some thoughts … Continue reading

Thoughts on a response to my article, “Thoughts on matriarchial societies: Africa, slavery, and rebuilding – the effects of non-organized society”- The ‘female as saint and saviour’ myth

I received a reply to one of my articles (“Thoughts on matriarchial societies: Africa, slavery, and rebuilding – the effects of non-organized society“) that was quite interesting.  I’m not sure who sent it (it really doesn’t matter) but I wish to … Continue reading

Thoughts on how joy requires a change in self

The other day I went walking and a thought came to me that I knew was true.  It amounted to this: “The discovery of joy requires a change in self.” In other words, joy is an aspect of a specific part of … Continue reading

Thoughts on the new “ultra-organized un-organized” society and the male

Here’s a thought I had one day: My inquiry into human society has shown that civilization is primarily a product of the male character.  It is the male character that organized society and created civilization.  They created things like social structure, laws, economy, science, knowledge, the … Continue reading
