Links

I've added a few (!) links. There will be more coming soon.

They are all taken from blogs I already had links to. I haven't read most of the content of most of the sites. I just tried to add links to sites with a focus on men's right or anti-feminism by whatever name.

I might delete some links later - if i find something that offends me enough. Then again probably not. I'm assuming you have a brain and can make up your own mind about any other sites you look at.

A lot of the sites I find that are against feminsim seem to have a christian or right-wing quality. For the record I am neither. The whole idea that politics is simply one dimensional (left or right) seems stupid to me. It is more complicated that that, and should be treated as such. Besides that all the main political parties seem to be pro-feminist and as a result anti-male. At least in the UK - they all stink. Labour, Tory and Lib-Dems.

I'm also an atheist. God in any shape or form just doesn't make any sense, but if you believe I don't want to argue with you. I don't want to sidetracked away from the main theme of this blog.

Just dropped by to say hi. I do agree that a lot of MRA's have some other agenda in addition to the men's movement, but we need all the men we can get.

Take care and keep writing!

Thanks for the note Pete. I agree we need all the support we can get at the moment.

About politics being too complex to fit into the one-dimensional left-right axis, I agree; that's just plain silly. A somewhat more revealing scheme is the Nolan Chart, often used along with a small political quiz as a Libertarian outreach tool. This, as you may know, puts an economic freedom axis perpendicular to a personal freedom axis so that it becomes obvious that totalitarians of any stripe are closer together than a simple left vs right view would lead you to believe.
Another good scheme for analyzing political positions might be Virginia Postrel's Stasist vs Dynamist dichotomy, explained in her book "The Future and Its Enemies." The idea there is people who want to freeze technology or social institutions in place versus those who trust the invisible hand, spontaneous organization and such to enable people to try new things to solve their problems.
I've recently listened to an excellent set of lectures from The Teaching Company by professor Jeremy Shermer called "Ideas in Politics." which by explaining what liberalism and conservatism are, as well as the various sources of nationalism, the environmentalist movement and etc. it becomes pretty obvious that which ideas are picked up by which parties are largely accidents of history.
I also found Hayek's short essay, "Why I am not a conservative" very helpful to my understanding of the political landscape.
