McKillop and King

The famous Martin Luther King, who was born on 15th January, 1929, wrote from prison: “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

As Australia is burning down, justice here seems impossible to me. A few dozen people are dead – and a billion animals. Nothing seems fair in the land of the alleged “fair go”.

Mary MacKillop, Saint Mary Of The Cross, was also born on this date in 1842.

She helped establish the Josephite order where women renounced independence, worldly knowledge and property to embrace poverty, chasity and obedience.

This commitment allowed the order to establish countless schools for the poor across Australia. That was a very different time.

As I live with almost no income and face the real possibility of poverty and homelessness at the age 0f 62, I am in awe of Mary MacKillop and Martin Luther King.

Gender Equity: Knowing Power

Times change.

Twenty years ago Nancy Pelosi became the first ever female speaker of the US Congress.

One of this woman’s most famous aspirations tells us a great deal about the world we live in: “I really want women to know their power ……”

I was a midwife for 31 years and I also want women to know their true female power, both what it is and, just as importantly, what it isnt.

Making life work is all about balance.

This truth about men also holds for women.

Lest We Forget.

All Of Us.

Margaret Mead

Margaret Mead: “Children must be taught how to think, not what to think. “

It’s the difference between freedom and indoctrination.” – Tim Goldich

———————————————————–

I was a midwife for 31 years, but modern feminist tyranny in Maribyrnong, Victoria, has turned me into an MRA, a men’s rights activist.

So I love and celebrate the humanity of Margaret Mead who was born on this day in 1901.

Mead observed that, “There is no greater insight into the future than recognizing when we save our children, we save ourselves ………” and “………. when women disengage completely from their traditional role they become more ruthless and savage than men.”

What does this mean for women and for the rest of us when fewer women become mothers?

Lady MacBeth. And her husband. From Shakespeare. How long has this been going on?
