Truth is not what you want it to be

S: HA ha! He said "preVAILent"! -- It's "PREValent"! Everybody knows that! Or maybe we're in a new paradigum and nobody told me. 
From the department of tautology department, here's wisdom from Myamoto Musashi, 17th-century swordsman, philosopher and rōnin (wandering, masterless samurai), author of "The Book of Five Rings" and "The Path of Aloneness":
"Truth is not what you want it to be. It is what it is, and you must bend to its power or live a lie."
The guy who did this video is a MGTOW (Men Going Their Own Way), in case that's not clear. I'm not. MGTOWs call each other "brother" a lot, it seems like, which is just as cringey as when feminist women call each other "sister". What I am is a misanthrope, which, despite the fact that it contains anthropos, the Greek root for "man", means I hate everybody equally. I'm friendly, though, don't misunderstand. I don't even HAVE a samurai sword. You can ask my girlfriend.
I do have a video editor though, and I used it to chop off the last part of this video. I would have linked directly to the original but he started talking about masturbation, dildos and sex dolls. For me, that went beyond the pail. Or maybe beyond the pale, but whatever it is he went beyond it. At least I know prevailent's not a word.

Sylvie Imelda Shene "Truth is not what you want it to be. It is what it is, and you must bend to its power or live a lie."
Totally! Most people are living a lie... And again I could not agree with you more S. Yes, women are the biggest abusers of children, but whe
n children grow up -- male and female -- will direct their repressed hate at their own mothers' -- at all women. I have been the target of people's repressed hate many times. Just like I recently was the target of this latent hate at my job of nine and half years. their own mothers are protected from their hate, but other women that have nothing to do with the injustices they suffered at the hands of their own mothers -- will have to pay the price -- and I sure did pay the price. 

So far I have not seen anyone articulate the naked truth better than Alice Miller. " In my view, women are by no means less aggressive than men. Of course, they are victimized and disadvantaged by men avenging themselves for the beating they received from their mothers. But women avenge themselves for such victimization and physical cruelty by taking it out on their little children, thus breeding new generations of Avengers who consciously love and honor their parents.

I see no real difference between the cruelty of women and that of men because both sexes have learned such sadism at the hands of their parents and caregivers at the time when their brains were still in the process of formation. As children, they were subjected to cruelty and even perversion, but they not allowed to defend themselves. So later take out their repressed anger on other defenseless people, frequently in the same way their parents treated them when they were small. Women frequently vent this acquired sadism on their children. While men also give free rein to it by victimizing employees at work or lower military ranks, or else participating in orgies of violence like genocide or terrorist attacks. The causes invariable lie in the repressed and totally denied the suffering of their childhood (though most of them will insist that they had wonderful parents). People who were not humiliated, tormented, or beaten in their early years are incapable of sadism.

Women can live out all kinds of covert perversion on their children and torment them impunity as long as they call this behavior “good parenting.” Society idealizes mothers because people have never consciously realized that their own mothers treated them cruelly when they were small. Accordingly, women normally enjoy total immunity.

I see no sex-specific differences in the suicide bombers. I understand terrorism as an attempt to compensate for the humiliations these people were subjected to , but have never consciously perceived as such, by means of a “magnificent deed” (such as sacrificing their own lives for the sake of a group).

Though it is not difficult to understand this dynamic, there are not many people who would allow themselves to give up their denial and look the truth in the face. The fear felt by the tormented children they once were can prevent this all their lives.”
