Western women have been tricked into pursuing power instead of love. Paradoxically, they never have been so powerless. They want to be loved but no longer have love to offer in exchange.
“Any girl who grows to womanhood without knowing that love is her supreme value has been spiritually raped. Feminine spirituality expresses an attitude of spiritual waiting, and tending, and readiness for the meeting with its opposite which is a prerequisite for inner wholeness. Without this she becomes a prey to the masculine within herself, a raging spirit of intellectual or physical activity to which no man can be related, and to which she can in no way relate herself. She is a woman possessed.” Irene Claremont de Castillejo, Knowing Woman: a Feminine Psychology.
Western Women Have Lost Power to Love (Revised)
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
The movie “WarGames” (1983) illustrates how the Illuminati undermined heterosexuals in 34 short years. In the movie, Matthew Broderick is a computer whiz who accidentally starts a nuclear countdown and races to avert catastrophe. His girlfriend, played by Ally Sheedy is seen in a complementary role, basically helping, encouraging and admiring him. He is the leader. But her presence informs, validates and heightens everything he does. It’s as though his actions are dedicated to her.
This is the way heterosexuality works. Woman empowers man by entrusting her power to husband. This is how woman loves, i.e. by “trusting,” enlisting as First Mate to his Captain. If this movie were remade today, she would be Captain; he would be emasculated, and they would break up.
From Chaucer to Freud, men have asked, “What do women want?” It’s really quite simple. They want to be loved. Specifically, they want the passionate lifelong love of a husband. But what makes a man love a woman in this way? Her sacrifice. By throwing her lot in with his, accepting his leadership, and serving him and their children. In other words, lasting love is earned by deeds. It is not based on sex appeal (which wanes) or witty comebacks. It is built on bonds of GRATITUDE.
By teaching women to be self-seeking instead of self-sacrificing, Feminism has deprived them of their stock-in-trade, love. All they have left to give is sex. Because they won’t surrender to a loving husband, they’re reduced to giving themselves to strangers.
