IN a nation positively bent low by social fractures and orchestrated losing, this has the potential to be a trend that reinvigorates American culture – including its formerly legendary enterprise:
In a discussion a few years ago at Old Catallaxy regarding erstwhile news reports on the admission of women to one of the gentlemen’s clubs of Melbourne (or Sydney), I posited what was thereafter dubbed the Law of Clubs. The law states that when women follow men into such male-dominated environs, the prestige rightly or wrongly associated with them eventually declines and men start to leave. Women then follow men to their newly favoured clubs and professions.
This doesn’t mean women are antithetical to prestige but that the deprecation of exclusivity alters the nature and reduces the appeal of any clique. If the law holds true in the United States, college-averse young men will increasingly associate trades, apprenticeships and self-built businesses with prestige and see generic university ‘qualifications’ especially – even Ivy League ones – as markers of mediocrity rather than mobility. Therefore: American women will be beating down the doors of plumbing schools 15 to 20 years from now. In the meantime – to their incalculable benefit – a new generation of men will be taught absolutely nothing about their own unworthiness by Marxists and feminists. If you can’t march through an institution, march out of it.
