On Feminism

When I think of feminine energy, I think creation. Like birth, Spring, and newness, feminity is this and many other things. As such, markets are feminine, because markets are the result of the latticework of creative actions. A good or service comes into existence either physically or conceptually, and then exchanged with others in the attempt to gain more than is lossed, ie. the creation of wealth. Politics, on the other hand, is a destructive endeavor, quite anti-feminine. It seems to me that true feminism would embrace and promote markets and market action over politics, but it’s a rare feminist who doesn’t agitate for Big Daddy Government to come to their rescue. Ironic. And that’s today’s two cents.
