The social order that produced “The Greatest Generation” derived from many premises but central to that social order were America as a Melting Pot, Equal Opportunity and The American Dream. In this social order boys, men and fathers were highly valued as captured in a common saying of that time: “It was taken for granted that a man’s word was his bond and carried great weight.”
Consequent to this social order was the empirical reality that boys, men, and fathers fared well on virtually all indices of emotional, personal, social, academic and occupational indices.
As this former social order was supplanted by the social orders of radical feminism, identity politics and the intellectual dominance of intersectional theory, boys, men, and fathers came to be demeaned, depreciated, and devalued. The consequences for boys, men, fathers were that they fared poorly on all positive social indices.
The ideological propaganda of the advocacy media for radical feminism, identity politics and intersectionality theory continued to totally ignore the underlying empirical reality and today still claim victimization and demand restitution.
Such false claims have critical implications for the forthcoming 2020 primary and general elections.
The chart below provides the empirical truth against which false gender ideological narratives can be evaluated.
