Why are there are many subcultures who will not tolerate violence?
An argument can be made that any and all violent subcultures are enabled and encouraged by elites who are interested in themselves and avoiding responsibility rather than stopping violence
If a political party is seen as enabling, excusing and indeed encouraging and importing violent immature unstable cultures, while the political elites sit in guarded upscale communities, just to garner votes? keeping troubled cultures in a state of permanent rage? hmmmmmmmmmm
There must be a tipping point for the mayhem? Where the mayhem will consume the makers as well as the receivers?
Anti abortion laws contribute to the curse of fatherlessness of all violent, poverty stricken and low functioning societies
El Salvador: Rape survivor sentenced to 30 years in jail under extreme anti-abortion law
The sentence against a 19-year-old rape survivor to 30 years in prison on charges of “aggravated homicide” after she suffered pregnancy related complications, is a terrifying example of the need for El Salvador to urgently repeal its retrograde anti-abortion law, Amnesty International said.
El Salvador’s anti-abortion law is causing nothing but pain and suffering to countless women and girls and their families. It goes against human rights and it has no place in the country or anywhere in the entire world
Not surprisingly, El Salvador is the third most violent country in the world. Time to start treating the most vulnerable of young women like adults who can make their own decisions. Any and all laws inhibit the entire medical community and their ability to help the down and out
Pirate attacks? Growing? Troubled males growing up without responsible adult parenting?? Where are the fathers?
Pirate attacks? Growing? Troubled vulnerable males growing up without responsible adult parenting??
In areas of rigid, draconian marriage, divorce and anti abortion laws. Religious leadership needs to focus on responsible adult fathering and responsible adult relationships.
Polygamy is widely practiced in Gaza—and the women (or “sister wives”) are not happy about it.
So says Asmaa Al-Ghoul, who has just exposed this practice in an article for Al Monitor. Al-Ghoul is a heroic feminist Palestinian journalist who, in 2009, was fired for her work in which she exposed honor killings on the West Bank and in Gaza; she was harassed, threatened, and nearly arrested by Hamas for this work. I interviewed her at the time by phone and published a series of articles about her.
Now, she reports that polygamy is practiced by both rich and poor in Gaza. Anecdotally, she describes “hostility” and “hatred” between a pair of “sister-wives” who visited a beauty parlor together. She also quotes a financially independent and professionally successful woman who chose to become a second wife but who now says:
Becoming the second wife is the worst decision that a woman can make. She will always live with the guilt of taking what was not hers. In most instances, the second wife discovers that 90% of the things her husband told her about his circumstances and his first wife were lies.
Another woman, a first wife, describes the enormous “pain and humiliation” that she felt when her husband sprang a second wife upon her.
|“Becoming the second wife is the worst decision that a Muslim woman can make.”
Polygamy is legally sanctioned by Sharia law, by the Hadith, and by custom. A man is supposed to treat each woman “equally,” something that is humanly impossible to do. The classic arguments in favor of polygamy are as follows: A man does not have to remain in an unhappy marriage—but he does not have to divorce the mother of his children for whom he remains responsible; if a woman has been widowed or has no husband and if she cannot support herself, a married man can extend the kindness of “protection” by marrying her; if she is poor and cannot afford a dowry, becoming a dowry-less second, third, or fourth wife will afford her the chance of marriage and childbearing; and, if a man’s first wife cannot bear children, polygamy allows her to remain part of an extended family where she may enjoy her husband’s children in her life.
This does not always work out. One might remember how convicted Afghan-Canadian honor killer Mohammed Shafia’s second wife, Tooba Yahya, tormented his first wife, Rona Amir Mohammed, who was infertile. Mohammed, Tooba, and their son murdered Rona and three of Tooba’s biological daughters who were all seen as “too Western” for Afghan girls who lived in Canada.
I once lived in a polygamous Muslim household in Afghanistan and, based on that first-hand experience, coupled with research and interviews, it is also clear that male lust, both for sex and for as many children as possible, is also a factor in the practice of polygamy.
It is also clear that in poor families, everyone lives in close quarters and the first wife uses and abuses the second wife as her indentured servant—until or unless the second wife begins producing high-value sons. Then, the tables may turn. Also, the half-siblings are in a dead heat competition for their father’s affections, attention, and for whatever inheritance there may be.
|Muslim polygamy is rampant in the UK, where the number of such illegal unions has been estimated to be at least 20,000.|
Not only does Palestine not nurture it’s young male throwaways of polygamy, Palestine also doesn’t nurture it’s young women resulting in instability, low functioning, violence, unhappiness, misery and chaos
“You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away people’s initiative and independence.
You cannot help people permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”
Young women sexually mutilated for a lifetime of agony? How can anyone do this?
Maine Legislators Vote Down Bill Banning FGM
“The legislators who voted against this FGM bill curiously argued that ‘FGM doesn’t happen in Maine,’ despite the fact that Maine is one of only eight federal pilot programs to address the exponential growth of FGM in America. If little girls in Maine are not at risk for FGM, then why is Maine receiving more than $200,000 a year from the federal government to help prevent FGM?”
Even if “FGM doesn’t happen in Maine, in reality, this common practice in the Muslim world is being committed in the United States by immigrant populations on helpless little girls.
Any and all of these atrocities aimed at keeping young women under control, end up contributing to a culture of terrorism, gang warfare, violence, misery, depression, suicide………
All part of the mindset that enables fatherlessness…….
