“Men are Responsible for All the Problems in the World”

Within six months I’ve had two women tell me that “men are responsible for all the problems in the world.” I just smiled. I don’t argue with idiots.

The first one was a nurse making $18 to $21 an hour, who had an easy indoor job doing little more than passing out medicine. The second one worked out of her apartment and made over $50,000 a year.

They had spacious apartments, big-screen TVs, cars, central heating and air-conditioning, hospitals, dentists, ready-made food and clothes, and indoor plumbing. All of these achievements were the creations of men. Specifically, white men.

Men, in fact, are responsible for nearly all the good in the world. Again, specifically white men. If blacks had never existed, the world would have never noticed. Besides sports and music – and they have degraded both – what they have done? Essentially nothing besides crime.

Asians are better, but they did not discover political and economic liberty, or achieve but a fraction of the discoveries and inventions of Europeans. Ditto for Arabs, Asian Indians, and anyone from south of the U.S. border.

As Charles Murray pointed out in “Human Accomplishment” (and it has been noticed long before him) European men and their descendents in the world have discovered/created 97% of everything in the past several hundred years, The only race that has shown itself indispensible is whites. Again, specifically white men.

As Camille Paglia so famously noticed, if civilization had been left in the hands of women, we’d still be living in grass huts. Or, to quote the humorist P.J. O’Rourke, without men civilization would last until the next oil change.

All races have done bad things, including whites. The difference is that whites have created almost all the good in the world, too. If whites – and again specifically white men – had never existed, blacks would still be in 20,000 BC. Permanently. Arabs? They’d still be living in tents and riding camels and wouldn’t have a clue about all the oil they’re sitting on. The rest of the world wouldn’t be much better.

Proof of the superiority of Western civilization is the fact half the world wants to move here. You don’t see Westerners pouring into the Third World to experience all the wonders of it.

When people denigrate those who they believe have all the power – even if they don’t – it’s generally based on envy. The attack on white men (aka Dead White Males) is due to envy from who those have only achieved a fraction of what the West has.

As for these women, both were unmarried and without children, and with the hostile attitudes they had, the chances of husband, home and children were slim indeed. What man in his right mind would get involved with any woman, when nearly the first words of their mouths were that men were responsible for what’s wrong in the world?

Even in their case, I think their comments were due to envy. “I have been denied husband, home and children…it’s your fault…I hate you.” Such as the poisoned fruits of left-wing feminism: women all good, men all bad.

My experience has been that when women get together they do little more than talk about their relationships and abuse men. Men, contrary to women’s delusions, are loathe to talk behind women’s backs and say bad things about them. When you compare the percentage of bad things each sex says about the other, women do 95% if it, if not more.

I find the whole thing bizarre. Men created civilization and technology (imagine life without dentistry) and apparently because of the influence of leftism – and specifically left-wing feminism – women have no gratitude for the gifts they’re received and instead spurn and abuse men and make up fantasies about “patriarchy.”. Just astonishing.

None of this will last, of course.

Do you have a theory as to why white men created civilization instead of someone else doing it? What was the motivation, and why did no one else have that same motivation- or the ability to act on it?

I don't have a clue.

Well white men did not create the first civilization. The first civilizations were in the Middle East and South America. Also read Jared Diamond 'Guns Germs and Steel'.

Jared Diamond doesn't have a clue about anything.
