Dear Brothers and Sisters:  Gender and Its Responsibility

Friday, December 31, 2010


Men’s Action will take a new direction. Part of the decision to alter course comes from the realization that in addition to my having written two books on gender this website has more than 100 of my essays, and more that six hours of streaming videos explaining and/or illustrating the principle of gender. If a person reads all the material that I have generated concerning gender, I doubt that adding a few more essays would alter his thinking on the subject. Therefore, this decision to move on with the knowledge at hand to expanded areas of understanding and application.

A shift in direction would not mean changing the message, but would instead alter its focus from an emphasis on the principle of gender to the practical application of this principle in our lives. Also, it would be beneficial to show the principle of gender in operation outside of the confines of Indo-European thought. By saying this I do not mean to denigrate in any way the positive spiritual teachings that have come from the East; however, peoples in Africa, the Americas, and the Pacific also had an understanding of gender, the need to respect mother earth and to worship God. I would like to touch on their social mores, traditions, and customs as part of an illustration of the universal understanding of gender and the respect that it develops for the earth and the power that created it.

As a person born in the United States I am particularly interested in the values, customs and mores that existed in this land before the arrival of the European. American education and media influence portrays the indigenous peoples of America—whom I shall refer to as Indians—as savages who attacked our wagon trains and in general tried to inhibit the natural progress of the Western world.

This essay and perhaps others to follow will contain some of the teachings, beliefs, and practices of those who roamed this land before us. As a basis from which to judge this material I recommend that you review my essay Cubists, which I have linked here.

The first selection is the words of George Copway (Kahgegagahbowh) of the Ojibwe.

I was born in Nature’s wild domain! The trees were all that sheltered my infant limbs, the blue heavens all that covered me. I am one of Nature’s children. I have always admired her. She shall be my glory: her features, her robes, and the wreath about her brow, the seasons, her stately oaks, and the evergreen—her hair, ringlets over the earth—all contribute to my enduring love of her.

And wherever I see her, emotions of pleasure roll in my breast, and swell and burst like waves on the shores of the ocean, in prayer and praise to Him who has placed me in her hand. It is thought great to be born in places, surrounded with wealth—but to be born in Nature’s great domain is greater still!

I would much more glory in this birthplace, with the broad canopy of heaven over me, and the giant arms of the forest trees for my shelter, than to be born in palaces of marble studded with pillars of gold! Nature will be Nature still, while palaces shall decay and fall in ruins.

Yes, Niagara will be Niagara a thousand years hence. The rainbow, a wreath over her brow, shall continue as long as the Sun and the flowing of the river—while the work of art, however carefully protected and preserved, shall fade and crumble into dust.

The following is from Chief Santana of the Kiowa

I love the land of the buffalo and will not part with it.

I want my children raised as I was; I don’t want them to settle. I love to roam over the prairies. There I feel free and happy, but when we settle down we grow pale and die.

Lastly we find the words of Wovoka of the Paiute

You ask me to plow the ground. Shall I take a knife and tear my mothers bosom? Then when I die she will not take me to her bosom to rest.

You ask me to dig for stones. Shall I dig under her skin for her bones? Then when I die I cannot enter her body to be born again.

You ask me to cut grass and make hay and sell it, and to be rich like white men but how dare I cut my mother’s hair?

I want my people to stay with me here. All the dead men will come to life again. Their spirits will come to their bodies again. We must wait here in the homes of our fathers and be ready to meet again in the bosom of our mothers.

These three selections show the love of the Indian for mother earth. They respect her and do not abuse her. Material accumulation is not a desire of theirs. They believe they live in an abundant world that has been given freely to them.

I hope you enjoyed reading the above. Subsequent essays will focus on the ethics and social etiquette of the American Indian.


Tuesday, December 21, 2010


The media reported the following news in a 48-hour period this past week concerning health, government, and natural disasters:

1.A medical report indicated that the health of American women deteriorated on several fronts due to alcoholism, smoking, obesity, and stress.

2.France determined that 50% of its population is either overweight or obese.

3.Australia experienced severe flooding.

4.Civil disturbances took place in England.

5.Economic instability in Ireland reached a critical stage.

6.Elizabeth Edwards died of breast cancer.

These events while reported in the news media no longer seem newsworthy in the sense of creating an “oh my” response among viewers and readers; they have become routine.

Regarding the health report on American women, it indicated there are more cases of the sexually transmitted disease chlamydia, a rise in diabetes and high blood pressure, and an increase in binge drinking. The decling health of the American woman is only exceeded by the declining health of European women among whom the depression rate has reached 15%. Women all over the Western world have increased their alcohol consumption. Japanese women have quadrupled their alcohol consuption since the advent of the American occupation. Even though anti-smoking campaigns exist throughout the nation 18% of American women still indulge in that habit. There has been a tremendous rise in smoking by Asian women because more of them are entering the workforce, have disposable income and see smoking as “modern and liberated.” Remember the days when men prohibited their wives from drinking and smoking? Cyrrosis of the liver and lung cancer among women was rare at that time; so was depression. Venereal disease was a rarity among women except among prostitutes. Let’s remember the “modern and liberated” when we address Item 6.

Regarding French obesity and the sickness resulting from it, the United States also has a severe obesity problem with 39.8 million adults suffering from that malady and more than 57% of American adults classified as overweight. Diabetes and weight gain have increased in India, which now has 40 million diabetics. More than one-third of African women and a quarter of African men are estimated to be overweight, and the World Health Organization predicts that will rise to 41 percent and 30 percent respectively in the next 10 years. Close to 15% of the world population is now obese, and these rates are climbing everywhere as the Western way of living and eating spreads.

Regarding the flooding in Australia, every continent experienced severe flooding in 2010. North America had severe floods in Canada, the United States, and Mexico. In Europe severe flooding occurred in France, Romania, Serbia, Portugal, Poland and Hungary. Asia saw severe flooding in Singapore, China, and Indonesia. African countries Kenya, and Nigeria experienced devastating flooding. South and Central America saw severe flooding in Guatemala, Brazil, Argentina, Columbia, Brazil, and Peru. Severe flooding became routine throughout the world in 2010.

Severe civil disturbances have occurred in England. Civil disturbances have occurred with increased frequency throughout the world of Western style governments. In my last essay I indicated the following: Political turmoil is on the increase on every continent. Citizens are demonstrating in Thailand, Greece, France, Chechnya, Jakarta, India, and Venezuela to name the more noteworthy. I see no need to elaborate further here.

The critical state of the Irish economy exemplifies similar conditions in Portugal, Spain, Greece, Dubai, North Korea, Jamaica, Haiti, Brazil, The Sudan, and most of Africa. The United States has experienced the worst economic downturn since the Great Depression. National economies are fragile at best and in a state of collapse at worse.

Of the six categories mentioned above, none received greater coverage than the news that Elizabeth Edwards died of cancer. She had battled breast cancer for many years but the cancer spread to her liver and she failed shortly thereafter. She had endured hardships such as losing a child, experiencing a divorce from a noted person, and battling an illness that became fatal. Other women have endured similar ordeals, but Elizabeth Edwards was wealthy and a nationally known figure.

The media treatment of Elisabeth Edwards symbolizes the perversion of values of Western thought. Of all the severe issues affecting society that took place in a 48-hour period the media focused on Elizabeth Edwards. Granted people like human-interest stories, especially about the rich and famous; Elizabeth Edwards was rich and famous and also had her breasts cut off. On the west coast senatorial candidate Carly Fiorina was rich and famous and also had her breasts cut off. The media did not comment on this un-natural condition of women whether poor or rich, known or not. Herein lie two major issues that contribute to the demise of the Western era.

The first issue is the un-natural lifestyle created by Western thought that results in physical, mental, and emotional conditions that are foreign to natural living. Societies exist in this world where women do not suffer from breast and cervical cancer and where mental depression and suicide are rarities. They also have no need for binge drinking and smoking. These societies raise children that do not require the drug Ritalin to function responsibly. Western thought considers these people to be primitive, third world, and ignorant.

The second issue has to do with the acceptance of Western society of all its ills. One of the female attributes is adaptability. The feminine principle will adapt to anything, and it is the responsibility of the masculine principle to see that it only adapts to what it best for itself and society. However, Western thought is feminine oriented; therefore, there are no limits as to what it will endure and adapt to. Items one through six of this essay address extreme and unnatural conditions that have received such widespread acceptance that they are only newsworthy for the day. Shouldn’t it be a major concern of society that weather conditions destroy an increasing segment of the world’s land area, that people suffer from increasingly poor health, that political instability continues to grow, as does economic instability? Lastly, women—the nurturers of the race—are in a state of mental, physical and emotional decline; shouldn’t this be a condition that would bring about major societal concern? Lets look at the term “modern and liberated” again and see why these conditions do not concern most of society.

Women are being indoctrinated and propagandized to believe that gender is a social construct rather than a metaphysical truth. They are told that they are “modern and liberated” and can do the same things that men can do. Their mental, physical, and spiritual deterioration gets blamed on other factors, which the great material god in Washington will supposedly take care of through the development of medical “cures” and enactment of political solutions. However, this god and the priesthood around it have created and fostered the very conditions that society in general and women in particular suffer from. Unfortunately Western thought accepts these conditions and continues to forge ahead with a self-centered materialistic lifestyle that continues to take its toll on all members of society.

Some people have awakened to the absurdity of the grossly materialistic lifestyle that Western thought has created and have begun to make change in their personal lives. They eat more natural diets, live a calmer and more spiritual life, enjoying the benefits of family, learn to live with less, and share what they have. These people represent a small but growing minority of people who hopefully will form the nucleus of a new age that will arise as the Western era implodes.
