When Dads4Kids started on 1st May 2002 we had no idea how important this ‘MayDay’ call would become. My wife and I had the naive idea that we would help and inspire fathers to be more involved with their children and turn their hearts towards home. We had no idea how important and strategic that idea was, nor did we realise that in 2017 we would be on the pointy end of the spear in defending even the simplest idea of sanity for the good of society. The whole biological reality that a man is a man and a woman is a woman and that family starts when a man marries a woman and has a child is now being questioned by all those who have swallowed the blue pill.
The Red Pill
Where does this talk of red pills and blue pills come from?
The terms are derived from the 1999 film ‘The Matrix’. For those who are not familiar with it, the main character, Neo, is offered the choice between a red pill and a blue pill. The red pill would allow him to escape from the Matrix, into the real world. But living in the real world, or the ‘truth of reality’ is harsher, more dangerous and more difficult. On the other hand, the blue pill would allow him to stay in the Matrix – a simulated and comfortable world where everything is an illusion, is not real and therefore where life is easier because it is removed from reality.
The analogy of the Matrix, the red and the blue pill is brilliant in the light of the battle our society is now engaged in. Guy Kawasaki calls it “the choice between either living in reality or living in fantasy”. When we as a civilisation make a collective choice to live in a fantasy we embrace our own destruction.
Mark Latham, in his brilliant essay called ‘From Reason to Radicalism: Gender Fluidity’ elucidates the deception on the Safe Schools ideology which is core belief of the Australian Teachers’ Union and is thus embedded in our education system.
“When John Maynard Keynes declared “Madmen in authority, who hear voices in the air, are distilling their frenzy from some academic scribbler a few years back”, he knew what he was talking about.
The craziest trend in Australian politics is to teach Neo-Marxist genderless programs in our schools through the Orwellian-named Safe Schools and Building Respectful Relationships (BRR) curriculum. . .
. . . Weedon (the originator of the program) thinks that from our first moments alive, we are brainwashed into accepting the social order around us.
Governments, schools, churches, the media, popular culture and even fashion trends combine to reinforce the “power relations” and dominance of capitalism.
The things we know from observing nature and studying science are dismissed as “biological determinism”.
So too notions of truth, commonsense and life-experience are disparaged as “historical constructs” — delivering “false consciousness” and tricking people into a misunderstanding of their best interests. For Weedon, the process of social conditioning denies its “own partiality”.
“It fails to acknowledge that it is but one possible version of meaning, rather than ‘truth’ itself and that it represents particular (political) interests.”
For instance, growing up with two straight parents is said to “lead to the acquisition by children of a heterosexual gendered identity”. Weedon writes of how: “For young girls, the acquisition of femininity involves a recognition that they are already castrated like their mother”, forcing them to submit to patriarchy, or male dominance. No one is immune from the process of false gender identity.
Individuals are said to be “sexual beings from birth”, reflected in the “initial bisexuality of the child”.
This is the kind of thinking behind the Start Early program developed by Early Childhood Australia (ECA), which teaches childcare and preschool infants about sexuality, cross-dressing and the opposite sex’s toilets.
An ECA spokeswoman has said that, “(young) children are sexual beings, it’s a strong part of their identity’’.
Most parents would be horrified by this stance but it’s become commonplace in the Australian education system.
Having lost the battle for economic and foreign policy in the 1980s, Neo-Marxists embarked on a long march through the institutions of the public sector, especially universities and schools.
Indoctrination programs like Safe Schools, BRR and Start Early are the inevitable result. This breaks the longstanding, bipartisan practice in Australian politics of keeping ideology out of schools. . .
. . . This is why Safe Schools seeks to eradicate the use of terms like “his and her” and “boys and girls”.
It believes genderless language will produce a genderless generation of young Australians, self-selecting their sexuality as a fluid identity.
Political correctness is not an accident, a random form of censorship. It’s a carefully targeted campaign designed to outlaw the language of observable facts in the discussion of race, gender and sexuality. . .
. . . Not only is the post-structuralist agenda anti-reason, anti-science and anti-family, it is also anti-education.
It wants to abandon the conventional process of learning through known facts and universally established truths, creating a borderless world of genderless individuals…
Australia’s political leaders are sleepwalking into an educational disaster. As parents we need to make our views known to election candidates and school leaders alike. Anyone who has researched this issue will know we are fighting for the future of our civilisation.
Mark Latham was one of the speakers at the recent International Conference on Men’s Issues (ICMI), along with such wonderful men’s advocates as Bettina Arndt, Miranda Devine, Karen Straughan and Cassie Jaye (the film maker behind the exciting documentary advocating for men called The Red Pill).
I caught up with Mark last weekend at the ICMI. Mark Latham helped Dads4Kids release ‘The 12Pt Plan’ in Parliament House on 26 June 2003. Read some of his comments on pages 8-10 of the transcript here.
The team at Dads4Kids has rejected the blue pill so we see through the fantasy of gender fluidity universal patriarchal oppression and genderless marriage. Dads4Kids is well acquainted with the demonization of masculinity, the corrupt family law system with its bias against men, governmental bias against men, biased gender studies programmes, educational bias against men and boys, the male suicide epidemic and the continuing crisis in male health.
Most of the above subjects are covered in Cassie Jaye’s brilliant new film which was shown at the International Conference on Men’s Issues held at the Gold Coast last weekend.
See the film for yourself. The main stream media hates this documentary, which is almost always a good sign! Cassie Jaye does not gloss over the imperfections in parts of the men’s movement but she allows both the feminists and men’s advocates to speak freely and openly. She puts the viewer in the box seat and allows them to make their own choice.
We encourage you to get a hold of your own copy of The Red Pill to make up your own mind.
Share The Red Pill with others. If you feel inspired, organise your own screening. The language can be a bit strong and the protagonists are less than perfect but that doesn’t take away from the reality of the issues and the need for us to expose the prevailing feminist fantasy.
Yours for more Reality
PS.This Thursday 22 June at 8pm, Dads4Kids is holding the ‘Building a Better Future for Our Children’ Webinar with two special guests, Dr Bruce Robinson, author of Fathering from the Fast Lane and Dr Byron Pirola, marriage and relationship expert (see All You Need is Love). Both will be sharing their tips and secrets for being a good father and having a great marriage.
We will be having a discussion around some of the issues raised in The Red Pill and advancing a strategy to take Dads4Kids to the next level. See information on my blog here. See my video invitation. Only register if you want to learn, grow and make a difference!
