A Swedish friend of mine works as a history teacher, and he sometimes send me little gold nuggets like this.

We don't know if the Scandinavians kept using the English king's face on their coins because they thought that was what coins was supposed to look like, or if they did it because it made it easier to use the coins in England.

I get that you're tired of arguing against a brick wall, but:
1) #notallbrickwalls, because there's always a few reasonable people within any ideology and
2) sometimes, even the thickest brick wall can crumble. Maybe not always in the sense of "Yes, you convinced me", but most of the time it's at least fun to argue and occasionally you can generate some amounts of lulz or schadenfreude out of the opponent :^)

Sometimes I get really exhausted, not from arguing with ideologues, but just from seeing extremism rising in every spectrum of every political compass. Heck, escaping that is pretty much impossible with omnipresent news and media, but you can stop yourself from thinking too hard about that stuff. At least that's what I do when that happens and many a time it sparked some new idea or world view in my brain that made discussion fun again... for a few weeks, then the cycle starts anew. But completely stop caring? Nah, thinking and talking about thoughts is too much fun.

tl;dr: You might just need a long break.

Sometimes it's really hard to decipher what you write in seriousness and what you write for shitposting. But knowing you believe in a Jewish conspiracy, I'm guessing: both.

Ok, I know this will be a hard truth for you to swallow, but men in the first world have no institutional power over women. There is no sexist structure of power that benefits men over women (there is one that benefits women, though, diversity quotas and such...). Catcalling is nigh-universally frowned upon. Besides, by the same logic you could excuse antisemitic prejudice as a-ok, because Jews control the media, the international banking system, the monetary exchange, the stock market, all the while American and European political figures kowtow to Israel, and so on. Or that you can't be sexist against women in Sweden and Canada, because those countries pursue feminist policies and the structures of power there are stacked against men. Or whites can't be racist against blacks in South Africa, because blacks are the ones in power. Or there's nothing bad about hating gays in Britain, because they are privileged by the existing power structures.
The collectivist double standards you employ as a part of your marxist-indoctrination-induced worldview never cause you any cognitive dissonance?
I remember, in my youth, not being a racist or sexist meant treating people equally. But then collectivists like you came about, with their "prejudice+power" mental gymnastics, "cultural enrichment" and "diversity quotas". I come from a poor, working-class family. I am working class, slaving away in a shitty job for pathetic pay. My prospects for vertical social mobility are pretty much non-existent. No one in the political establishment represents my interest. But to a modern leftist, I am the one in power, because I am a white heterosexual male. Can you see how detached from reality this ideology is? Can you see how the left betrayed the working class and became a feelgood fodder for middle and upper-middle class who want to erase the subconscious guilt they feel about having the only privilege that matters: wealth?
I was hard on the left until a couple of years ago. Then the left in my country started preaching the same anti-working-class drivel as you do. Coupled with the actions of the European establishment, I was naturally driven to the right, as the left became inherently anti-me.
People like you worked hard to get Trump elected in the US. People like you are working hard to revive nationalism and white supremacy in Europe. With your marxist-feminist agenda you've swung the political pendulum so far to the left, that when it will finally swings to the right - the process we are recently seeing the beginnings of - it will go so far, that... well, I hope you're ready to Ride the Tiger.

>Sexism can roughly be defined by prejudice plus power.

The only places this definition is correct are Tumblr and texts that have references to the original scientific paper that proposed this new definition, but apparently no one actually read the original since it also stated that individual acts of sexism are still sexism and have nothing to do with power. By doing this, it's basically justified to consciously discriminate against any majority because apparenty they are the ones in power. Because people are just hive minds within their caste and individual experiences are a myth, obviously. It's okay to make fun of male rape victims because most other males haven't been raped!

This is like modern casual Christianity where every believer just blends out everything in their movement that doesn't suit their narrative.

>so they're, like, "creating jobs", right? :D
Creating jobs for the purpose of creating jobs? Yeah, didn't work out so well in the thirties in Germany :D

>a society that values efficiency there may be laws/contracts against that, tho..
Okay, I thought with your post above you were backing the claims of classic American libertarianism and the absolute liberal power of the free market, as in a "Government is always bad, capitalism is always good" kind of way - which is a legitimate political position in my view, but not without its flaws. As far as I could tell you're not exactly in favor of the authority of the state, so this is how I interpreted your statement...
