FT109: “Liberals attack marriage and motherhood because their narcissism prevents them from doing either well.” -Old Pithy
The Institution of Marriage is the Original Synergy where the Whole is Greater than the Sum of its Parts
A bird’s life is not an easy one. They have to suffer through horrible storms. Struggle to find food during the winter. Stay on guard at all times lest some cat eats them. They have to build a nest every spring to lay their eggs in. And raise their babies. Find food for them. Protect them. Then teach them how to be a bird. And kick them out of the nest so they learn how to use their wings. As they fly off into the cruel world to start their own short and hard lives. Leaving the mothers to do it all over again next year.
It’s not quite the same for humans. They don’t grow up so fast. And require a whole lot more nurturing. For the human baby is about the most helpless of all babies in the animal kingdom. Requiring far more care and teaching before they can go off on their own. And live their own lives. Where the bird takes a few months it takes the human about 18 years. So raising children is a bit different. And a bit more involved. Requiring a lot more effort and work on the part of the parents.
Enter the institution of marriage. The most basic division of labor. A man and a woman join in marriage to raise children. The original synergy. Where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. From the most basic biological level. (The woman has eggs but cannot create life without fertilization. A man has fertilization but cannot create life with eggs.) To financial. (A woman cannot work when bringing new life into the world. So the father works to pay the bills and provide a home for the new life.) To parenting. (Men and women are different and bring different skills to parenting. This diversity makes children better adapted to enter the world.)
Liberals are more likely to abort their Babies and Divorce as they are too Competitive and Aggressive to arrest their Alpha Desires
Raising children isn’t easy. Both mother and father have to make great sacrifices in their personal lives for their children. And to support each other. Which means parents have to love their children and each other more than they love themselves. Which is why narcissists make poor spouses. And poor parents. Because they can’t sacrifice enough of their self-love to be a good spouse. Or a good parent.
Liberals are narcissists. They believe in big government. As long as they run it. Because they think they are smarter than everyone else. And should tell everyone else how to live their lives. Atheists tend to be liberals. (Not all for the followers of Ayn Rand are typically atheists, too.) Because they refuse to live in a world where there is a higher power than theirs. Celebrities tend to be liberals because they yearn for the fawning adulation of their fans. College professors tend to be liberals because they enjoy the fawning veneration of their students. Artists tend to be liberals for the fawning admiration of their fans. Women advancing in the corporate or political world tend to be liberals because they love to bask in the self-satisfaction of making it ‘in a man’s world’. And the accolades that go with it. Further stroking their already huge egos. You see, everything a liberal does is to feed their narcissism. Everything is about them. And getting married or having kids isn’t. Which is why they can pursue excellence in all other endeavors but these.
Liberals are alpha males. In a non-physical, narcissistic way. Even the women. Where the liberal feminist wants to be everything a man can be. Everything is a competition. To prove that they are better than everyone else. And to show everyone that they’ve made it. Especially to those who have bested them earlier in their lives. From the bullies in school. To the boys and girls who wouldn’t date them. To the talented geeks that went on to be entrepreneurial geniuses. And billionaires. To the men who have always had the best careers. And the best stuff. But now it’s payback time. Where the expression ‘the best revenge is living well’ really means something. Which explains why liberals are more likely to abort their babies. And have their marriages end in divorce. They are just too competitive and too aggressive to arrest their alpha desires. To knock that chip off of their shoulders. To let go of their anger. Their ambition. Too consumed with their own existence to share their only love (self-love) with a spouse. Or a child. In their all out pursuit of liberal happiness. Affirmation. That they do matter. That they have a purpose. That they are special.
Liberals think Happily Married Women raising Families are just too Stupid to Know that they should be as Miserable as they Are
Liberals want to get married. And have children. But on their terms. Where it doesn’t interfere with their lives. Or change them. Or inconvenience them. They enter into these arrangements with the idea that they will remain the center of the universe.
Celebrities are always getting married. And having children. Which proves that they like the institution of marriage. And children. But their marriages often end in divorce. And their subsequent custody battles are often ugly. And aired in public. Which is why liberals condemn the stay-at-home mother. Who gives up on being everything she could be. To be the only thing that liberals can’t be. Happily married and raising a family.
And that’s what really bugs them. They’re happy. To a liberal this is just not fair. They’re the ones who should be happy. Because they matter. They’re special. They have the nicer stuff. And what really gets in their craw is that these happily married women raising families are just too stupid to know that they should be as miserable as they are.
