How Women Have Changed

Seventy years – a little over three generations – can completely change the societal landscape. How women have changed in that time is astounding, and not in any way that could be rightly considered good or flattering. Their devolution from Great to Grift is a national tragedy.

From Greatest To Grift In 70 Years

A first blush it truly amazing that the granddaughters of the generation of women who took to the factories and built the US war machine in WW2 degenerated into Sandra Fluke’s generation of grifters seeking hand-outs from the government. It just doesn’t, on the face of it, make sense that We Can Do It turned into We Can Get Free Shit because this seems to be a prima facie reversal of feminist goals and thought.

A deeper look, however, reveals that this degeneration had to be expected. Feminism and gender equality has been billed as a Civil Rights issue and in America all the Civil Rights movements have degenerated within three generations into grift and dependency upon the government for subsidence and/or convenience hand-outs. It’s just more shocking and painful to see it happen to American women, who have done so much and come so far.
