The film “The Red Pill” explores difficulties facing men regarding violence, custody issues etc.
People seeing it mostly say it’s unbiased.
Nevertheless, “feminist” activists are browbeating cinemas into not screening it.
The film-maker herself identifies as a feminist.
It’s vital not to trivialise this into a “women’s-rights-versus-men’s-rights” wrangle.
“Rights” are an invention of politicians and ruling class — suitable for composing pretty documents like the “UN Declaration of Human Rights”.
Concerning real issues, where you and I live, the language of “rights” doesn’t work.
For a better society, we must think in terms of “responsibilities”.
Like marriage – irrevocably taking responsibility for each other and for the children, if any.
No violence, not even verbal violence — the parties having vowed to live and act as one.
Children should learn this from their mother’s knee — and hopefully observe it in practice.
Steve Biddulph’s latest book is “Ten Things Girls Need Most: To Grow Up Strong and Free”.
Was “free” really the word he was looking for?
Evolution theory – the kind usually pushed in media and classroom – leaves no room for freedom. Aren’t we just biochemical robots?
Common sense and true religion say that we aren’t.
If God exists, he has given us the freedom to sin – and the freedom not to sin. You can’t have one without the other.
So, try expressing an opinion in certain unfashionable no-go areas. Have a go.
You may lose your job — even your head.
Such things have been reported on TV. There would be lots more if the media didn’t self-censor.
And we’re also told that if we express certain un-trendy ideas, certain people will be offended and will (perhaps) kill themselves.
A kind of dictatorship-by-suicide-threat?

Coopers Breweries are currently in panic mode – terrified of being boycotted by the homosexual lobby.
They’re busily disclaiming any support for a televised polite discussion between two politicians about same-sex-marriage (SSM) — which happened to advertise their product.
What might be the attitude of ordinary NON-homosexual beer-drinkers to SSM? It’s on them that Coopers depend most of all to make money.
Nobody knows for sure.
However, their attitude to spineless inhibiting of free speech by big-moneyed corporations — I think we can guess that.
The debate itself was wishy-washy and missed the main point.
Isn’t the worst thing about SSM that such couples will use their being “married” to reinforce their claimed “right” to adopt children – thus unnecessarily depriving children of a mother-father-based family unit to belong to?
That aspect didn’t get a mention.

1. Australia’s “progressive” media are making a celebrity of a woman who calls Islam a “feminist” religion.
Don’t they know that in the countries where Islam is practiced most, women are stoned for alleged infidelity?
Didn’t an official Islamic spokesperson recently tell Australia’s Sky News that sometimes it’s OK to beat one’s wife?
Islam needs to “progressively” convert its own traditionalist adherents away from violence-prone fundamentalism.
2. Some Australians consider themselves “progressive” when Sydney streets are filled with persons promoting anal sex as normal.
Many Australians let their youngsters go to “progressive” schools which groom them to condone (if not to practise) that kind of thing, and to vilify anybody discouraging it?
Perhaps Australia needs to “progressively” eradicate those ideas.
Perhaps the Australians loudest in their claims to be progressive are progressing down the wrong track.
The other day, 3,500-plus people took part in an “anti-Trump” march in Melbourne.
According to one organiser, “We’re not marching as an anti-Trump movement per se, we’re marching to protest the hate speech, the hateful rhetoric….”
Meanwhile, Ibrahim Abu Mohammed, Australia’s Grand Mufti, wants section 18C of the Racial Discrimination Act expanded to prohibit what he calls “hate speech” concerning his religion. In other words, he wants Australia to have a Pakistan-style blasphemy law.
No. No. The fact is, there’s nothing wrong with expressing hatred.
Some things we have got to hate.
Not people, but certain actions.
Think about childhood sexual abuse. Yes, punish the offenders — but don’t hate even them as persons.
God himself loves morally evil people — insofar as they are not completely evil.
He hates sin. He loves sinners.
We must try to do the same.

“Post-truth politics” — are you sick of hearing that catchphrase?
The idea that by getting people booing and hooraying on demand, you can control their minds (while by-passing their brains).
What alternative is there?
Jesus Christ said:
“If you abide in my word, you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free…. Truly, I tell you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin.” (St John’s gospel, chapter 8)
Every weekend, 1.8 million Australians attend church.
If they listen properly and are taught gospel truth without fear or favour — might they stop being slaves to sin?
Could that be catching?
Australia perhaps becoming unrecognisable – free from lying, dishonesty and deceit?
