Emotional Nation

Dennis Prager discusses the "feminization of society" today. He says that Judeo-Christian values do not treat equality as synonymous with sameness and that "men and women are profoundly different".

He writes that America is becoming for feminized.

The Left has been successful in supplanting masculine virtues with feminine ones. That is why "compassion" is probably the most frequently cited value. That is why the further left you go, the greater the antipathy to those who make war. Indeed, universities, the embodiment of feminist emotionality and anti-Judeo-Christian values, ban military recruiters and oppose war-themed names for their sports teams.

A sentiment such as "War is not the answer" embodies leftist feminine emotionality. The statement is, after all, utter nonsense, as many of the greatest evils -- from Nazi totalitarianism and genocide to slavery -- were quite effectively "answered" by war.

I always asked people when it would be the answer? After a nuke has exploded in NYC? The same people who talk this way say "Never Again" in another context. They are lying.

Skip March adds:

Dennis Prager's article on the feminization of society raises some interesting questions and perspectives regarding "compassion". As usual the devil is in the details, that is how do we act with, carry out, live with compassion. Do we enable, rely on handouts requiring nothing in return, deny realities (sometimes harsh) or do we empower, hold accountable with clearly understood standards, acknowledge realities (sometimes harsh)? The definition of compassion through our behaviors as a society, culture, country will determine whether we grow and thrive or we die by imploding or by whithering on the vine. I've seen the latter choices work best at the individual, societal, cultural levels in my lifetime.

Prager sees some of the failure of schools due to feminine virtues "gone wild"(my quotation). He writes:

They are increasingly run by women -- women with female thinking moreover. Such thinking leads to papers no longer being graded with a red pencil lest students' feelings be hurt; to self-esteem supplanting self-discipline as a value; to banning games such as dodge ball in which participants' feelings may get hurt; to discouraging male competition; to banning peanut butter because two out of a thousand students are highly allergic to peanuts.

In a masculine society governed by Judeo-Christian values (which include a masculine-depicted and compassionate God), feminine virtues are adored and honored. In a feminized society, male virtues are discarded.
