The Narrative

My piece on the House of Commons report on ‘Women in the Workplace’ prompted a supporter to post a comment. He suggested the committee rejected the evidence put forward by Catherine Hakim and myself because it didn’t follow the official ‘narrative’ concerning women in the workplace. He then suggested I watch a 13-minute-long video titled, ‘The Narrative’, presented by an American, Bill Whittle, of ‘Pajamas TV’ (‘PJTV’) My thanks to him for this suggestion. The video is worth the investment of just 13 minutes for anyone interested in this important subject, which effectively controls what the mass media reports and – more importantly – what it doesn’t:

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

    I’m not the first to suggest that the ‘narrative’ transcends partisan politics and that it comes to bear fruit when civilisations reach a point of relative comfort. An extremely prosperous nineteenth century Britain, for instance, had to show off its status to the rest of the world with excessive displays of morality and tolerance. In my humble opinion, multiculturalism, feminism, human rights, environmentalism and gay rights etc., are just part of the same legacy of status posturing.

    The trouble is, the new ruling classes no longer have the accountability of past industrialists or land owners, they derive their income from an enlarged and activist state. Therefore the costs of their ‘superior acts of virtue’ are outsourced to the taxpayer and the privileging of one social group will often lead to the detriment of another.

    The ‘chattering classes’ have little in common with the wider population and are generally insulated from those they lord over. Their positions are based on being members of a kind of hereditary network – not on merit or struggle alone. The old nobility had to mix with their ‘social inferiors’ on a daily basis, even as children.
