Mrs. Clinton's War

"The interesting question about the war in Afghanistan is not what its outcome will be... but why it continues," says William S. Lind, who "suspect[s] the question can be answered in one word: feminism" — War for Women.

I find it interesting that in several places, C. S. Lewis notes that men (husbands / fathers) should engage in the family's "foreign policy" with neighbors, while women (wives / mothers) in the family's "domestic policy"; and according to Lewis: with good reason.

For Lewis notes that women rightfully are quite militantly protective of their children in a way that tends to make "diplomacy" difficult with other families; whereas fathers are biologically designed to be less combative and singularly emotional and therefore more open to dialogue and compromise with other fathers.

Yes, C.S. Lewis's defense of male headship of the family is the best I have yet to read.

This reminds me of the rhetorical question, "If your dog bit a child, whom would you rather apologise to, the child's father or the child's mother?"

The father might still be really angry, but it's the mother who'll kill you on the spot.
