“THE RED PILL”: looking at an old problem in a different way, and getting a mixed reception!
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.
