What Oppresses a Man?

by Glenn Fairman9/18/16

What oppresses men and women stems far less from externalities and far more from our daily choices. In discovering the seeds of that latter form, it is perhaps necessary to know only three things: the content of one’s refrigerator, the character of one’s bookshelf, and a log of one’s television viewing. It is the things that a man takes into himself that weigh heavily upon his being. Indeed, it is the objects we consume volitionally that uplift or defile us: as they titrate into our souls either those elixirs of affirmation or that sickness unto life.

    A saying which became popular in the 1960’s, “You are what you eat”, applies to the various types of nourishment we feed our body and soul.

    Well, the contents of our refrigerator (and pantry) might not be auspicious, but I’d like to think we’d do better with the contents of our bookshelves. My TV viewing is rather eclectic, including no recent sitcoms or dramas. And on the computer, I rely heavily on conservative news blogs.

    Let me just say a Fairman-like thought that just occurred to me which may or may not have anything to do with the subject at hand:

    In the world of liberalism, all is forgiven because one is for the “equality of women” or help for “the downtrodden minorities.” All other abuses, destruction, and excesses are excused under this umbrella.

    Baboons have a more complex social structure.

    I’d don’t expect a “yea” or “nay” out of you. And I’m certainly not one who has always minded the gatekeeper so well. (Paying penance with Sinatra, though….a nice penance to pay…extended now to The Three Tenors) But one vital reason I have a new editorial policy regarding political articles is because, one, I get tired or reading the crap and, two, I can’t believe that pointless bitching and analyzing (as opposed to actually doing something or reporting on those who do) is good to take in.

    So this site will not look like American Thinker in the foreseeable future. And thank goodness for that.

    Now, one thing I have been putting into myself is homemade apple pie. I will share my experiences shortly.

    “the content of one’s refrigerator, the character of one’s bookshelf, and a log of one’s television viewing.”

    Food: Mostly organic. And I’ve been hitting the Kettle Corn hard lately.
    Books: I like to read Pastors, Priests, Monks and (occationally) Mavericks.
    TV: Seahawks!, and I watch “Person Of Interest” on Netflix with my husband (mostly because he holds my hand while we watch). Which reminds me of another important choice we make: whom we associate with.
