I recently discovered the online “Men Going Their Own Way” (or MGTOW) movement and am fascinated by it’s underlying tenants and philosophies. Essentially, MGTOW’s are men who have come to the realization traditional relationships with women fail a cost-benefit analysis, and they are better off “going their own way.” MGTOW’s do not court women with the intention of marrying or starting a family with them, instead dedicating their discretionary time and income that otherwise would have been consumed by having a wife and kids towards personal ventures – primarily growing a business or leisure and recreational behaviors.
I myself am not a MGTOW and initially, I was skeptical. My first intuition was that such men were deadbeat Millennial losers, living in their parents basement, playing video games whilst eating Cheetos. The more I researched the topic, the more I realized that was not the case at all and that the MGTOW’s could actually be a very positive agent for much needed change in society in the same way Western Separatism could.
In Western societies, and especially Canada, the prevalent cultural development of the past several decades has been the success of the feminist movement. While the initial objectives of equality, respect and ethical, decent treatment for women were laudable and noble it is my opinion that those objectives were met long ago and feminism today has morphed into something much more sinister.
New Age Feminism instead has turned women from equal partners to men into a privileged class within society who, through the State and mainstream media, receive undeserved and unmerited benefits at men’s expense.
The most obvious legislative example the extremes of feminism being divorce and alimony laws that overwhelmingly favour women. In essence turning men into financial indentured servants to their ex-wives, regardless of whether or not the breakdown of their marriage was their fault. While I believe men who are abusive or unfaithful to their wives deserve no sympathy, increasingly women are using liberal divorce laws to defraud honest, decent men – and such women are equally as undeserving of sympathy.
Another example of the extremes of feminism was Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s appointment of a “gender equal” cabinet upon taking office. Particularly when it comes to highest levels of a national government, merit, not gender, should be the determining factor in cabinet appointments. Evidently self-avowed feminist Justin Trudeau does not think that is the case.
Another such example was in the Alberta legislature, where former PC MLA Sandra Jensen crossed the floor to join the NDP. To deflect criticism of the move, Jensen stood before the legislature and read mean spirited comments from the internet, urging all members of the Legislature to stand against “misogyny.” Wild Rose and PC MLA’s applauded the move, clearly demonstrating that appeasing professional and perpetual feminist victims was more important to them than respecting the right to free speech of their support base.
Examples like this go on and on, but the overarching principle is that radical Feminism has eroded our culture and society. Canada today is a weak, irrational, impotent nation with no future and the rise of the movements like the Western Separatist and MGTOW movements are a reflection of what is in store for this country.
The most insidious victory the feminist movement has won has been the enshrinement of abortion laws. Over the past 40 years, liberalized abortion laws have lead to the termination of approximately 100,000 Canadian children each year. Nearly 4 million Canadian born people are not with us today as a consequence.
In Canada, any debate on abortion automatically degenerates into a hyper-irrational argument where impassioned supporters on both the pro-life and pro-choice side dogmatically defend their ethical position while casting the other side to be inhuman monsters.
(For the record, I am unabashedly pro-life.)
Stephen Harper illustrated this principle well, when, in office, he would not touch the issue of abortion with a 10 foot pole, even though as an evangelical Christian, one might assume his personal position would similarly be pro-life.
Unsurprisingly, the pro-choice camp, overwhelmingly from the feminist camp won the culture war. Pro-lifers fixated only on the sanctity of human life lost. All the while, neither side asked the rational question:”What happens to a welfare state like Canada, when there are more recipients of handouts than there are payers of taxes?”
We will discover the answer to that question within the next decade or so and my prediction is neither the pro-life or pro-choice side will be comfortable with the outcome.
Canada is aging rapidly with practically no young people. For 3 generations, the next generation of Canadians were either aborted or moved to the United States.
Who will pay for state funded entitlements and programs like health care, education, and infrastructure? My prediction is in the coming years, it will become impossible and either severe austerity or unimaginably high taxes are in store.
Tangentially, this grim demographic picture is the reason the Trudeau Government is opening the floodgates of immigration, taking in as many as 300,000 immigrants in 2017. The industrialists in Eastern Canada especially need young, unskilled labor to keep their manufacturing industry viable. Since Canadians have aborted something in the order of 4 million children over the past 4 decades, the labour shortfalls they face are cataclysmic. As such, they have no choice but to scrape the bottom of the barrel internationally to try to find cheap labor to produce overpriced goods to sell to Western Canadians.
Not only so, but with the Western provinces (especially Alberta) having younger populations the tax policy of the Federal government will be unending and massive west to east wealth transfers.
The power base of the victorious Canadian feminist movement has always been the Eastern progressives. However, an underlying assumption feminists like Justin Trudeau have always taken for granted is that men would always be easily seduced by promiscuous, sexually liberated women. In that way, men could be easily manipulated into being unwilling financial and social stooges to forward the interests and agendas of such women and their feminists enablers.
That sounds an awful lot like the role of Western Canada within Canadian confederation, replacing the “sexually liberated women” with the faux Canadian nationalism primarily defined by the culture and economy of Toronto and Montreal.
The underlying principle of the MGTOW movement is for men to not live up to that assumption and not be trapped in such a one-sided arrangement. MGTOW men are simply not bothering to enter into relationships with such women in the first place. Where they are trapped in a relationship without knowing better when entering into it, they are taking action to separate themselves.
Western Canada today is trapped in an exploitative and unfulfilling relationship with Eastern Canada. The elites of Eastern Canada are hell bent on taking every thing we have and have ever worked for. The elites of Eastern Canadians have long assumed that we could be seduced into staying, but as time progresses they have less and less to offer us.
Men going their own way are separating themselves from the trap of traditional relationships with women, poisoned by new age feminism.
In the same way, it’s time for Western Canada to go it’s own way from Canada, a once great nation, thoroughly poisoned by Canadian progressivism.
To address the predictable accusations that I am a sexist, misogynist, nothing concerns me more than the future of my 3 young daughters and my beautiful wife. All of whom I love with all my heart.
The most destructive consequence of feminism is that it has created a culture where women are made into sexualized objects, unlovable by men.
Instead of aspiring to being treated as equal partners to men, women who fall for new age feminist dogma aspire to treat men as disposable commodities they can manipulate through deceit and sexuality.
I can think of nothing more misogynistic than developing within women and girls (or anyone for that matter) a character that promotes deception, self-objectification, and prejudice against anyone (including men) for unchangeable attributes of their character (such as gender).
Did you know Alberta has always been a “manly” province?
If you look at the historic demographic pyramid, there has always been a imbalance with more men residing in the province than women.
(Refresh the page to see the animation with data from 1921 – 2016).
Personally, I believe this is because Alberta is a province that will always be unpredictable. The climate, economy, and government – the most important factors impacting livability, will never be stable in Alberta.
In Alberta we have had and will always will have unpredictable weather (climate change be damned).
In Alberta, we have had and will always have a boom-bust economy.
In Alberta, we have had and will always have unpredictable governments.
Our provincial motto, Fortis Et Liber, “Strong and Free” is fitting of the true nature of real Albertans.
If you are neither Strong or Free, you will not last in Alberta, regardless of whether you are a man or a woman.
Even though Sandman is from Toronto, he does not strike me as one of the pompus, progressive elites, hell bent on running the country into the ground.
