    Ah, the word empowerment

    It seems that word is now used as a tool. It once was a likable word, noble to decentralize power and thus control over others.

    This word is being used to psychologically massage her grandiosity. And we know that women who make decisions that are truly empowering do not consider it as anything great. Or at least, I do not.

    They just go ahead and do it.

    I think Chomsky was right, people are given an illusion of power so that the real power stays safe at the apex.

    I think decision-making power IS great. Do I have to discuss how great it is to make a decision every time I make one? Of course not.

    "Civilization can only revive when there shall come into being in a number of individuals a new tone of mind, independent of the prevalent one among the crowds, and in opposition to it- a tone of mind which will gradually win influence over the collective one, and in the end determine its character. Only an ethical movement can rescue us from barbarism, and the ethical comes into existence only in individuals."

    "Empowerment' is a facile term.

    We all make a thousand decisions a day without reference to anyone else.

    But some decisions are delegated to 'elected' people to make on our behalf.

    Feminists misuse the word and make it increasingly facile by supposing that women do not have as much 'decision' scope as men do, which is fatuous nonsense. It does however serve to make women feel subordinate and to 'demand', in shrill tones, what is simply not available to the majority of ordinary men.

    Empowerment: the act of conferring legality or sanction or formal warrant.

    The word has been constantly used and abused by narcissistic women who live in their own world and cannot tolerate facts nor common sense.
    Greed is for amateurs.
    Knowledge without wisdom is a load of books on the back of an ass.
    Scorn and mockery towards men in need is one of the reasons feminism is dying as we speak!.
