“Her female supporters are the type of feminists who don’t question the way in which women would “break the glass ceiling”. Achievement is more important than WHAT you achieve.”
Your statement is solid.
This idea of personal achievement is linked to Calvinism–the Protestant Ethic idea that IF you are doing well, you “obviously demonstrate” the blessing of God. To the contrary, if not, then YOU are to blame.
And it’s Calvinism crossed with Mar-rules; and this is the reason why:
The premise of Mars, as an archetype and entity, is not just associated with militarism. It is the symbol of individual self-interest. That self-interest comes into play in all sorts of aggressive ways if put under threat.
That’s why Goebbels explained that most people don’t want war, but they can be made to go along with war IF they are told that they are under sufficient attack… and if that particular LIE is told often.
So what you are describing are women who, in reaching for power and a sense of self in a patriarchal system internalize the Mars-rules modus operandi which IS the governing principle in the U.S.A. After all, it is a military empire with 1000 bases around the world, its top chiefs of staff pretty much direct foreign policy (along with their Deep State doppelgangers) and HALF of the U.S. budget is earmarked for This Beast.
It takes a spiritually mature person to look past their own comfort zone to what’s really taking place in the world around them. There are remarkable men who demonstrate this level of empathy and some women who lack it.
When someone like Hillary who is the Goldwater girl/neocon hawk repackages herself as a so-called Progressive, it diminishes the meaning and value of the term. This kind of counterfeiting is going on a lot. It’s tainted the original premise of the Liberal, now the Progressive, and it’s also eviscerating the ideals and humanitarian vision of the True Feminist.
Even the premise of Democracy has this taint. For after all, if citizens have ZERO say in implemented policies, what can voting mean?
I am going to post this item again, since I’ve brought it up often and it never seems to get much discussion. The “usual suspects” just return to the meme that blames THEM for what The Empowered Few do:
"Looking at statistical data, Gilens and Page, authors of “Testing Theories of American Politics: Elites, Interest Groups and Average Citizens,” concluded:
“When the preferences of economic elites and the stands of organized interest groups are controlled for, the preferences of the average American appear to have only a minuscule, near-zero, statistically non-significant impact upon public policy. (emphasis added).”
