Why are so many thefts committed by impoverished Blacks living in the inner cities? Because the power structure of society denies them what they need and should have as a matter of social justice -- that is, enough money to live a decent life and to have the necessary opportunities for self-development -- and then it also criminalizes their attempt to defy this power structure and take by force what they are illegitimately denied.
Did you just compare thefts to rape? Your next paragraph starting with "Similarly" seems to indicate you do. Uhm... really?
Similarly, so many rapes are committed by men because women withold their cooperation as sexual partners in order illegitimately to enhance their social power over men, even though in the natural state of the world there is sufficient sexual interest among both males and females, and they exist in sufficiently equal proportions, that everyone could be sexually fulfilled and happy all the time. But women are willing to create widespread sexual frustration, misery, and tension just to create an artificial power for themselves as governors of the artificial sex economy that they invent. This exploitation and power imbalance, like all such social moves, whether they be imbalances of wealth created by the rules of capitalism or racial power conjured up by the rules of racism or slavery, calls up a corresponding resentment in those mistreated, and the exploited and abused population lashes out with violence, whether in the form of Luddites smashing the machinery that put them out of work, Nat Turner murdering white slave holders in the Antebellum South, underpaid workers killing the Russian elite on their gigantic estates in 1918, or Jack the Ripper blindly striking out against Victorian morality.
So, let me get this straight, Marat. Not only have you compared rapes to thefts (above), but you seem to indicate that women are responsible for the fact there ARE rapes.
Am I reading you right?
In all these cases, a key element in the power structure is to disguise the exercise of power as 'natural,' and to point to any disruption of the power structure as 'violent' and 'criminal.' Thus if a poor family is turfed out on the street by their slum landlord since they can't pay the rent, this is not violence but just the ordinary course of the law according to the rules governing breach of contract, though it that same family now steals bread to feed themselves, they are dangerous criminals.
So rape is a disruption of power? 'violent' and 'criminal' in quotation marks suggests it should not be considered either? I humbly request you explain your words here, Marat.
Seems to me your current words, as they sound at least, show that you either have no idea what rape is (or the actual statistics about why it is acted, most of which have NOTHING to do with sexual urgest and much to do with violence and power similar to kidnapping and brutalizing), or that you don't have much respect for women. They are, it seems, responsible for the existence of rape because they withhold cooperation.
Please tell me I read that wrong.
Is blatantly wrong
Similarly, so many rapes are committed by men because women withold their cooperation as sexual partners in order illegitimately to enhance their social power over men
, and quite honestly, absolutely disgusting blatant sexism.
P.S The link above (http://en.wikipedia....nvicted_rapists
) is only the tip of the iceberg. If oyu really think women are responsible for being raped, I suggest you go read about what research of rapists and their motivations ACTUALLY shows, and, perhaps, some reports from the victims. Unless, of course, you think it's their fault.
