Most mainstream media TV is nearly pure propaganda. “The Bachelorette” is no exception. Shows like “The Bachelorette” are female porn.
I don’t watch that garbage voluntarily. I only notice because my other relatives watch.
The men act like total wimps. They’re all saying “Wow! I hope that The Bachelorette likes me! I got to spend a few moments with her!” It’s also a fabricated scenario, a bunch of men all exclusively going after the same woman. It’s promoting one-itis. The correct dating attitude is to pursue multiple women at the same time, rather than eagerly hope for a bit of positive feedback from a woman you’re obsessed over.
This season, “The Bachelorette” is a single mother. She’s a single mother because the biological father died, and not because she frivolously divorced him. At least they got that part of the story to make sense.
The lie is “It’s desirable to date and marry a single mother.” Actually, that’s one of the stupidest decisions you can make.
If you marry a single mother, her #1 priority is the child she already has. You’re going to waste money and energy raising someone else’s child. As a man, that’s one of the stupidest things you can do.
For some monkeys, when a new alpha male takes over, he frequently kills all the children that aren’t his.
They also had an amusing scripted conflict. One guy says “Maybe it’s a mistake to marry a single mother!”, and the woman gets angry and kicks him off the show.
“The Bachelorette” is promoting the lie that “It’s a good idea to date and marry a single mother.” Actually, that’s a stupid idea. If you marry a single mother, you’re wasting a huge chunk of your life raising someone else’s child.
While I’m on the subject of stupidly raising other people’s children, this story is interesting. A man had 30 children from a bunch of different women. He’s earning minimum wage. Child support is deducted from his paycheck and split among the mothers of his 30 children. Some of them only get $1.49 per month.
One reaction is “Good for him! If you can get lots of women pregnant and get other people to pay for it, why not do it?”
There was one important omitted point in that story. Almost all the mothers are on welfare.
I’m paying higher taxes, so that guy can sleep around and get women pregnant. I’m stuck with the bill for that guy’s foolishness.
That’s the “benefit” of the Welfare State. Why should a woman be responsible in picking a man, when the government will pay her to take care of her children?
In a really free market, if a woman gets pregnant via a deadbeat dad, that’s too bad for her. It’s the woman’s fault for being irresponsible. There might be some charities to replace the Welfare State, but they might not help women who make flagrantly stupid choices.
If a woman gets pregnant via a man who refuses to pay, then maybe her children should starve. There have to be consequences for bad decisions. That will happen anyway, as the economic system collapses.
In effect, the State is the absentee father for those children. Via the Welfare State, productive workers are taxed to pay for irresponsible fools.
This is a very important point. “Why does FSK have trouble finding a good job, even though he’s a really good programmer? Why would a business need skilled workers, when they can get the government to give them a bailout?” Similarly, “Why does FSK have trouble meeting women, even though he’s a hardworking and decent guy? Why would a woman choose to date someone responsible, when she can get pregnant and make FSK pay for her child via taxes?”
Via corporate welfare, I’m paying for stupid businesses managed by unqualified idiots. Via the Welfare State, I’m paying for other people’s children. Taxes make it hard for me to find a job or wife, because other people get the benefit of my labor, stolen via taxes and the State.
The taxes I pay subsidize businesses who squander that money hiring unqualified fools. The taxes I pay subsidize women who make bad choices.
All taxation is theft. The negative effects of taxation and the State affect all decisions people make. The State makes it hard for skilled workers to find a job, because the State subsidizes idiots who run a business. The State makes it hard for honest men to find a wife, because the State supports women who make bad choices.
