The Machinery of Unfreedom

[cross-posted on Austro-Athenian Empire]

Charles has an excellent post today on patriarchy, rape, and the distinction between voluntary and spontaneous orders – extending some of the themes of our libertarian feminism piece from 2004.

Well, your implied questions/criticisms are answered in the two posts. Maybe you don't agree with the answers, but if so, you haven't said why not.

Here I thought I knew what "patriarchy" meant, but I guess not. I never knew, for instance, that it had anything to do with attempted rape or mob scenes of drunken college males acting like alley cats rather than human beings or that it was the principal or only cause of such incidents.

I guess I'll next discover that the Holocaust was merely a typical manifestation of Gentile social dominance. [Always thought that you couldn't trust those goy.]

Yept, real insightful.
