I have received quite a few emails concerning the
above piece that have pointed out that the
'spread of information' is not necessarily a good thing - in that information
can be used by people to cause a great deal of harm. And when it comes to the
purposeful creation of fatal viruses, this harm could be positively
catastrophic, perhaps, for the whole human race.
As such, instead of valid information being
the God on Earth - as I like to describe it - it might well end up being the
very Devil itself!
Well, of course, this was the reason that I wrote the article - to make it abundantly clear even to
my less able readers - of which there are many! - that we are already living in very dangerous times.
It is bad enough when one man writes a
malevolent computer virus that spreads rapidly around the globe, but what
happens when it is a biological one?
It is a very depressing thought!
But we cannot sit on our backsides and do
And so, while it is true that the
accessibility of certain information - such as that required to make viruses -
must be restricted in some appropriate and well-scrutinised way, it is also true
that, in general, the spread of valid information is the best way of keeping
tabs on this - and, in fact, it is the best way to safeguard us against very
many potential ills.
It is always the case that the
power derived from information can be used for the good or for the bad. For
example, take the information required to produce life-saving antibiotics. Even
this could be used for the bad - perhaps simply by denying other countries
access to it.
But because, in so many areas - including the
building of fatal viruses in hidden laboratories in far away countries - there
is actually nothing that we can do to be certain that people are not getting
their hands on information that they will use for the bad, the only hope that we
have is to monitor as best as we can what is going on all over the place and to
arrange matters so that we are prepared for any eventualities.
We cannot bury our heads in the sand.
our only protection is access to information.
In other words, our only protection is access
Further, we cannot just leave it up to
self-serving power groups to monitor what is happening on our behalf. Not only
can they not be trusted to do the job properly, and probably will also never
have enough resources to do the job properly in the first place, but they are more than likely to
end up abusing the very power that this would give them.
And the solution to all three of these
problems is to spread valid information about to a greater and greater number of
'qualified' people so that any failures or abuses of power are far less likely
As an example of this, take a look at my piece
Damage to Society from False Accusations which gives a sense of this
situation as it applies to child abuse by stranger paedophiles.
The predatory paedophile on the street is, if
you like, the 'fatal virus' being manufactured somewhere in the dark, and the
normal everyday adults are either looking after the interests of the children
around them, or they are not.
If they are not looking, then the paedophile
will succeed easily in his quest. If they are looking, then he won't.
It is only by opening up access to
communications and to information - bit by bit - to a much wider audience that
we can hope to prevent future catastrophes, and, indeed, prevent many other
things from occurring that we consider to be 'bad'.
And so while it is true that some
kinds of information could well result in the very Devil himself being conjured
up, it is only by ensuring that information, in general, is spread far more
widely that we can hope to prevent such an event before it happens.
There is no other way!
Further, with regard to more mundane levels of
badness - crime, disharmony, aggravation etc - much of this arises because of
the behaviours of men, and mostly because they are dissatisfied in some way.
They want more money. They want more sex. They want a better job. They want
better access to their children. They do not want to be in prison. They hate the
And while there are sufficient numbers of them
behaving in a poor way as a result of their dissatisfaction, then our societies
will continue to have serious problems to deal with.
It only takes two delinquent boys to terrorise
an entire estate.
It only takes one dictator with a WMD to terrorise the
And when it comes to international conflicts,
then matters can become far worse. It only takes one dictator with a WMD to
terrorise the entire planet!
The way forward, therefore, is to build a
world that ...
1. ... caters far more to the needs of men
than is currently the case, particularly since ordinary men are now becoming far
more empowered (by the technology and the science etc) than they have ever been
in the past - which means that they can be far more dangerous. (Think of a
single suicidal and murderous geneticist deranged with anger over the loss of
his house and his children thanks to the divorcing judge. Or think of someone like Saddam!)
2. ... gradually functions on the basis of
such rich interconnections between people that power groups which serve only
themselves to the detriment of others simply cannot materialise and survive.
The alternative is perpetual conflict.
Putting it bluntly: The more that men are
satisfied and the more open are the connections between people, the fewer
problems will there be.
And, in my humble opinion, the best and
quickest route to achieving this state of affairs is through the various
machinations of the men's movement. (The feminist movement is aiming for the
complete opposite. It survives only by deception and by the stirring up of
hatred toward men, and it purposefully aims to create a world wherein men are
continually undermined - and, therefore, continually dissatisfied - none of
which is a good recipe for the future, to put it mildly.)
the men's movement can eventually unite men right
across the world.
Indeed, the men's movement can eventually
unite men right across the world. He might be a Jew or an Arab, a black or a
white, a gay or a straight, but, fundamentally, if he is a man and he spends a
good part of his life sitting at a screen, then the men's movement can reach him
- and therefore reach his fellow men - with relative ease - and vice versa -
and, bit by bit, things can be sorted out, plans can be made, friendships and
agreements can be created, and areas of consensus can rise to the top of the
What other way is there, given the awful
dangers that face us?
men who sit at computer screens are going to dominate
Indeed, men who sit at computer screens are
going to dominate the future. They are already succeeding in this to a
considerable extent. For example, the police officer who sits at a screen will
have more power in his hands than the officer patrolling the beat. The MI6 agent
who is monitoring the activists online will be gaining more power relative to
his boss who is simply spending his time in expensive restaurants chumming it up
with his high-level cronies. The lawyer who spends his days in a courtroom will
have less influence on the world than will one who types on his keyboard.
The police officers, the agents and the
lawyers who sit at their screens are all interconnected at some level, and they
will become far more closely connected with the men's movement as time goes by -
even if they do not realise it.
And so it is that the men's movement will
gradually spread far and wide. And it will end up being influenced by men, from
all walks of life, whose mentality is conducive to sitting at screens and
who actively engage in the issues.
This will be a minority of men, for sure. But
it is they, COLLECTIVELY, who will end up calling the shots.
Because in the not-too-distant future there will be no other effective way to
call the shots.
I am influencing the FBI agent who is reading this far
more so than he is influencing me.
As just one tiny and very trivial example of
this, I am influencing the FBI agent who is reading this far more so than he is
At a much higher level, of course, well-known
journalists and writers in the mainstream are still influencing millions of
people with their words and ideas. But, firstly, their relative influence is
diminishing rapidly, and, secondly, these are the very people who are becoming
more and more entangled with cyberspace - and, hence, with the men's movement -
once again, whether they realise it or not.
Further, and most fortunately for everybody,
these men who sit at screens are exactly the kind of men who, COLLECTIVELY, are
most likely to solve the most pressing problems that we face.
They are our best hope for the future.
With regard to gender issues, a similar kind
of influence over the powers-that-be is also going to take place in the near
future and the demise of feminism and political correctness is truly at hand.
And there will be many serious shocks in store
for their proponents.
1. The mainstream media are going to continue
to lose their power.
2. The men's movement is growing all the time
- through the screen. (Remember the police officer, the MI6 agent and the
lawyer?) And it is going to be positively enormous.
3. Feminism and political correctness have had
an extremely powerful stranglehold over the mainstream media to an extent that
has been almost Orwellian. And so, even a reversion to some kind of fair
balance, would actually result in a major decrease in the
support for them.
4. The deceptions, the dishonesty, the
stupidity and the downright nastiness of those who have laboured to stir up
hatred toward their own men will finally be exposed to the public at large. And
they will be vilified for it.
5. Ordinary men are being more
empowered as time goes by.
And there are oodles of other factors which I could drone on about for days.
But the above five factors on their own
will achieve a gargantuan change in circumstances for the feminists and the
politically correct. And they haven't a hope in Hell of surviving the onslaught
that they are about to face.
We are witnessing the dawn of a new era.
And it is men who sit at screens who are going
to bring this about.
And their job is to try to make people's lives
much happier and safer than they are now - including their own!
This will surely be their over-riding aim -
whether they realise it or not.
if this means disempowering western women to a large
extent, then, so be it.
And, indeed, if this means disempowering western women to a large extent,
then, so be it.
Oh Angry Harry, you are such a dreamer.
No way is this men's movement
going to happen in the way that you say it will. No way are
thousands and thousands of men from all walks of life, from all over the planet,
going to be swarming over the internet, sitting at their screens,
interconnecting, checking out the good, checking out the bad, passing around
information, while pushing forward their own 'agenda'.
The dawn of a new era, indeed!
Well, if that is true, my friend, then it is
best that you prepare yourself for the viruses, because, really, truly and most
definitely, there really is no other way.
Either the Men's Movement
grows and we prepare to deal with the future, or the number of men who
become alienated and disaffected continues to grow - in which case, we are
Finally, let us recall that one of the
best arguments explaining why we have yet to be visited by alien
civilisations from outer space rests on the notion that technologically
advanced societies tend to destroy themselves - by mistake or by malefaction
- well before they can muster the know-how for far-flung space travel.
And this is exactly what we will do in the very
near future unless the men's movement grows.
We will destroy ourselves.
