LOL The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) Excoriates Men
The good thing is that no attempt at marginalization and mischaracterization of men by the SPLC or attempt to claim certain individuals represent our increasing awareness of our common condition as men will stop men from the growing effort to understand our position, share it with others and make changes accordingly. Changes either made to improve the situation in terms of Rights for men and at worst the ability to make changes and choices in our own lives in order to live healthy lives despite our situation.
The men involved in the cases cited were indeed aware of the issues men face for our Rights and they were also affected by the cultural and political shift toward feminist doctrine.
Was Thomas Ball a perfect example of the causes of male alienation from our children...not exactly...he did slap his daughter when she would not go to bed and was subsequently removed from his child for life. He had a very difficult time allocating the fruits of his labor to a woman's family. This was to much for him and so he set himself on fire and committed suicide.
Is this the impetus that causes most men to be alienated from our children, certainly not, even less in fact. Men are mearly guests as part of women's families and women's children. Fatherhood is not a Right but a revocable privilege. A man's control over his own body and thus the fruits of its labor is not a Right, it is a revocable privilege.
Men can be removed from the home and the lives of our children by a woman's word alone. By default, shared parenting is not granted and it is only men who bear the liability and risks of obligation to marriage and thus obligations when said marriage is dissolved. (Women are 2/3 of those who divorce and dissolve the family)
If any said man wants to see his child again momentarily he must admit guilt. This is then used against him in a divorce proceeding to remove his right to fatherhood. VAWA is what is referred to by lawyers as "the silver bullet". Men's love for our children is used against us. At very best the role of men is as isolated resource producing male for women and women's families. These men's actions were symptomatic of a larger problem..problems exist that however closely or loosely related to the men mentioned, the MRM aims to bring attention to.
The great thing about the Men's Movement is that we have no leaders but rather act as a conglomerate of men sharing the experiences of our common condition as men. I have no doubt that in many ways these men shared aspects of this condition with the rest of us. Civilizations that were studied by the Greek philosopher Aristotle have made the same progression toward creating incentive to divide the family using "women's rights". It has in fact happened before. Feminism is in fact the progression to tyranny and the death of our Republic.
"The evil practices of the last (stage) and worst form of democracy are all found in tyrannies. Such are the power given to women in their families in the hope that they will inform against their husbands"
"women do not conspire against tyrants; and they are of course friendly to tyrannies since under them they have a good time."
"This and no other is the root from which a tyrant springs; when he first appears he is a protector." (most especially of women)
Why do women divorce and dissolve the family in such proportion? What is it about the laws of civilizations past when enacted that made the sure recipe for women to to employ them?
Most divorce is filed under general discontent and at no-fault. So I take a biological approach to the reason. In short it is done simply because they can at no consequence and second they either do not lose a thing and in most cases actually benefit from the seizure of male property and assets. However, in biology any organism given the license to increase it's genetic fitness by increasing its number of offspring or increasing its genetic diversity by way of variety of mates will do so, or at very least make a move to increase the likely hood of this occurring.
Given that women retain all the requisites from a man (and increasingly the State) to maintain what is seen as her offspring without the need for marriage or the contribution of a husband or father it becomes much more likely she will make this choice. Women initiate divorce because their biology creates an itch and quite simply because unlike for men there is no reason for them not to.
It is important for men to realize that marriage is not about men at all, it is about women and women's children. Men must therefore seek a new masculine identity and purpose other than one that is disposable.
Were the men in the SPLC article aware of some of these same issues and affected in one way or the other by them...yes they were. I believe Thomas Ball was affected by the lawful and political and Sodini the social and cultural aspects of the feminist doctrine which was more closely aligned with female hypergamy and changes in the mating dynamic as a whole. Perhaps instead of marginalizing men further and placing poison into the system I believe it would be wise to listen and attempt to understand the common condition that men increasingly face while living under feminism. Otherwise you present the problem and not the solution...Poison in....poison out.
