Capitalism/democracy appears to be the best way to live now because everything else that came before it has failed; is it really the best though? Probably not (in fact, democracy is overrated in my opinion but it's the least of all evils). Only time will tell.

I think I agree with the Hobbesian view on human nature though, so we'll probably self-destruct at some point.
We are not living in a democracy nowadays btw. It's a fake democracy governed by... yes.

That might very well be true. Well, recent developments (oil crisis etc.) show that shit is gonna hit the fan soon. How long can the puppetmasters drag that shit out and exploit the submissive commonfolk? Sadly -- yes -- it might be for 300 more years...

Serbs needed 500 years to rise against the Ottoman Empire

You haven't lived through communism. Communism happens only on a global scale. So far all the instances of 'communism' were just cover stories for opportunists. Similar to current American fascism that promotes itself as democracy

Perhaps 'dominating' wasn't the correct term to use, but it is clear to see that women are given a clear advantage in society nowadays all in the name of 'equality'.

I'm all for equal rights for women in society but it's clearly so lopsided nowadays it's shocking.

You should always support capitalism- to make sure those 30 pairs of shoes are able to lead a healthy and fruitful life.

Human nature precludes us from finding a perfect system, or even just a really really really REALLY good one, so we're pretty much stuck with our lot.

Perhaps 'dominating' wasn't the correct term to use, but it is clear to see that women are given a clear advantage in society nowadays all in the name of 'equality'.

I'm all for equal rights for women in society but it's clearly so lopsided nowadays it's shocking.
The whole reason that such a law would ostensibly be needed is to address perceived problems of under-representation of certain groups of people in the workplace, which isn't limited to just women. According to the article, it targeted racial minorities and disabled people as well. This sort of affirmative action aims to promote equality by practising an indirect form of discrimination, which is counter-intuitive but sensible to some extent. Without getting into the merits of the practice, the very fact that this sort of law was seen to be necessary evidences, to some extent, that the law's targeted groups were disadvantaged for whatever reasons in some ways. The fact that women were included in the bill/law isn't surprising, given that it's often the case that there are more men than women in executive positions, especially high-ranking executive positions.

I won't comment on the women-bias in family law because I don't know anything about that. In any event, my boyfriend has said pretty much exactly what you said, and he's a bit of a male chauvinist, so... I mean, I don't agree that women should be given an advantage because we are women or whatever; we should be given exactly that for which we are qualified or skilled. But I don't think society has become as lopsided as you think, apart from family law issues (sometimes the bias in favour of the woman is actually pretty sexist; it probably spills over from prehistoric days when those laws were formed). If equality were a race, women are the ones trying to catch up with the men, who are miles and miles and kilometres and more miles ahead of us. Centuries of discrimination and inequality can't be corrected in a mere 50 or 60 years.

Having said that, I feel very privileged to live in a modern, developed society and it's for this reason that I don't have a particularly strong passion for feminism. I don't feel discriminated against because of my gender and knowing what other women have gone through in the past and what many, MANY women are going through right now in other parts of the world, I consider myself very fortunate.

Quote:

Well, that was the accepted social order for a really long time and it was pretty awful, so no. On the other hand, women have never been in a dominant position before, and since women's biological and emotional make-up are different from men's, maybe we would be a lot more fair than you were if we were to be the dominant gender.

How many pairs of shoes have you got? Honestly?

I just ordered 5 pairs of boots online a few days ago. I try to make myself feel better by telling myself that I will only keep 2 pairs and return the rest. (It's free shipping and free returns...)

Of course the family laws are in favor of women especially regarding children. Comparing men and women parenting skills is like saying that ATP=WTA in what's tennis is concerned: some WTA players are good but they are lost in a sea of incompetents

The custody issue makes sense, but divorce laws are actually kinda sexist in an indirect sort of way.

I'm really sad that you didn't answer my question about your shoes.
