I absolutely loved the radical awesomeness of this manifesto. If taken literally, it is extremely terrifying; however, when read in a figurative manner, it contains many underlying truths. In saying “Power and control. Unmasterful in his personal relations with women, the male attains to masterfulness by the manipulation of money and everything controlled by money, in other words, of everything and everybody” the author is purposefully trying to generalize, but it is applicable to the negative side of male nature. When certain men feel unfulfilled or insecure, they hyper focus attention on achieving wealth, status and superficial things. I believe that this is due to emotional stifling and turmoil. This is not just a male occurrence however. Many females do the same exact thing in similar situations. I think that it is wrong to trash men without analyzing equivalent female flaws.
