We recently posted a piece explaining what success for J4MB would look like in the 2015 general election. A short while ago we received the following insightful response to the piece from Douglas of antimisandry.com, a website we recommend highly:
Many years ago, I was involved with the Green Movement, as it then was. Someone came up with the idea of forming a political party to push the agenda, and the Green Party was born.
That the Green Party still exists, and whether one likes their contemporary politics, is not my point. I lived through – and played my small part in – the formation of the Green Party which went from a struggling concept to a political platform within one or two elections. And the big point is that as soon as the big three parties saw votes being taken from them and going to this new Green Party, they ALL suddenly had ‘green’ issues on their agenda. Every one of the major parties started vying for the votes by declaring that they were greener than the others and environmental issues are a fixed part of modern politics.
Yes, the Green Party still exists and still pushes for… well, something… but most of the demands the Green Movement had back in the ‘old days’ have been met and often exceeded by the major political parties who have desperately wanted to appease the environmentalists hidden in most of us.
By making an election issue of men’s and boys’ needs, we can focus the attention of politicians on to male rights and the plight of men and boys. When main-stream politicians know for sure that getting voted in relies on them turning their back on divisive feminist policies and backing genuine equality, they will mandate accordingly and start voting in Parliament to appease the fair-mindedness that is in most of us.
It won’t even matter if the EU and UN keep pushing the feminist bigotry on the country: the politicians in power will reject it because they will know that to do otherwise will mean they will not stay in power. THAT is why every vote for J4MB matters.
