The Slavery of Men

Soldiers! Don't give yourselves to brutes, men who despise you, enslave you; who regiment your lives, tell you what to do, what to think and what to feel! Who drill you, diet you, treat you like cattle, use you as cannon fodder. Don't give yourselves to these unnatural men - machine men with machine minds and machine hearts! You are not machines, you are not cattle, you are men! You have the love of humanity in your hearts! You don't hate! Only the unloved hate; the unloved and the unnatural. Soldiers! Don't fight for slavery! Fight for liberty! In the seventeenth chapter of St. Luke, it is written that the kingdom of God is within man, not one man nor a group of men, but in all men!

As the 21st century swept across the planet and the third wave of feminism was well underway. The endeavor of equality was shifting within the sands of time and morphing into the next conflict in the battle of the sexes.
Though this new battle was more widespread and took on the persona of a worldwide war upon the male of the human species. The struggle quickly engulfed and decimated the traditional nuclear family and the foundation of traditional marriage. The war soon infiltrated the arena of international law and local politics. Women became a protected class and men were left to maintain their traditional roles as worker bees, warriors and providers. All without the benefit of equal protection under law.

The early part of this new century ushered in a period of worldwide change as revolutions broke out around the world and a very real struggle began against oppressive governments who had fallen under the control of large corporations and special interests.

These new influences generated a new language of political correctness which failed to promote equality but sought to vilify a segment of society to motivate the warriors of their cause. That new villain was of course the male or the "patriarchy" or the perceived notion that men had caused all of the problems which have plagued the world. Though the real evidence of this plague came into social context by way of propaganda and lacked empirical data.

The propaganda machine is a meat grinder that turns out images of inept men and the women who handle them, Woman who are portrayed as smarter, quicker and of superior intellect. The mainstream media treats men as the Nazi's treated the Jews prior to world war two. And it represents females in a way that reminds one of the way that the national socialists imagined the blonde haired and blued super race.

The court systems in the United States use men as a bottomless financial money pit, seeing men only in their traditional roles and labeling them as a threat to the safety of people based on not only gender but their military service.

Earlier in the month of April 2015 a black male by the name of Freddie Gray died while in police custody.
 Freddie C. Gray was the 25-year-old son of Gloria Darden. He had a twin sister, Fredericka, as well as another sister, Carolina. At the time of his death, Gray lived in the home owned by his sisters in the Gilmor Homes neighborhood.He stood 5 feet 8 inches (1.73 m) and weighed 145 pounds (66 kg).
Gray had a criminal record, mainly on drug charges and minor crimes.[Gray had been involved in 20 criminal court cases, five of which were still active at the time of his death, and was due in court on a possession charge on April 24.
The small amount of information contained in this wikipedia article speaks volumes about the state of our male population. It is indeed obvious that Freddie Gray was a young black male and was not only member of a segment of society that has been disenfranchised in the United States for hundreds of but years but also a member of a demographic of society which has found itself a victim of modern circumstances. In recent months the media has been on fire with stories of police shootings of blacks, but the one thing that the media perpetually overlooks is the fact that the people killed by police are not only black, but male as well.
