You have a natural flair for politics. Lots of high minded words that sound all noble but are meaningless in the real world. You'd be the next Ryan.
Take your tactical retreat concept. It is a highly subjective judgement call. It shifts far more than society and gives cowards the perfect slogan 101 to justify never standing for anything you might have to actually defend with more than typing. There is no one 'tradition' guiding the 'know when to run'. It depends on the grit n gravel in the man standing there in harm's way... well as much harm as a female teller can be I suppose...
The problem with retreat on non-life threatening issues is soon a man knows no other way of dealing with adversity.
Not sure what 'tradition' that follows... I would say something snarky about the french but they don't run from women in the civilian workforce.
Ahhh the 'society' is a series of tiny groups of folks who resist modern mores but not modern technologies. Just how do you figure out how you are supposed to live and wouldn't some 'traditionalist leader' be someone telling you what to think and or do? Seems highly contradictory, and highly selective on what is 'tradition' and what is simply warped thinking like many other cults?
So it really can't be a society or really any sort of organization, certainly with no operable code binding them together... nameless, vague, withdrawn from most society in one way or another... do these other traditionalist fear women in the workplace? Are other 'groups' planning to leave this country and it's safety for such bits of heaven like Pakistan?
The problem I have seen with 'traditionalist' 'societies' is most of what initially is seen to have somewhat noble and inspiring qualities gets eroded away and only the most virulent parts remain. It is a charismatic grouping, very dependant on it's local 'leadership' or at least in the mind's of the recluse isolationist members. In many ways it reminds me of the traditional leather societies. Not the gay biker leather crowd but the BDSM hierarchic one where rigid codes are enforced and women are only ranked due to their male Dominant but never over even the lowest ranked male. Interesting, totally volunteer, very artificial as it couldn't be practiced to any extent in the real world. Some groups were very simple, others with a very well developed structure.
But none of it is a foundation for anything more than playtime.
I doubt any of these 'traditionalists' will leave the safety of the USofA, most 'societies' would collapse without a very accommodating and liberal society to cocoon it.
I will wager a shiny nickle anyone would does leave our decadent society will be back with their barely used "Pakistan for Dummies" before they lose their accents...
Interesting in a train wreck sort of way... Old Guard BDSM leather cult as a more universal society.
Sounds like a B-Movie version of a John Norman novel.
Of course by then I am thinking "aw man, 6 days without sex "
Valid faith is determined by logic and reason.If you expect Logic and Reason to be the only determining factors in life you're going to find yourself sorely lacking at the end of your life for not having Faith in anything.
And and in response to the thread: I have no issues with voting for a woman. That doesn't mean I will vote for any woman just because she's a woman any more that I would vote for any black man just because he is black. Issues are key with me. If we finally get women running for president I hope to God that there ends up being one on both sides so that the "you're not voting for her because you're sexist" argument can't start.
