He makes more sense than you do.
You seem to be confused here.
What he is describing is the ways things are - he is letting you know why women should not expect men to come rushing to their aid.
When he speaks about power, he clearly mentioned that he was speaking about RAW physical power - not what feminist agitprop regards as power.
There is a difference between actual power and the power of - for example - a speech, or an idea.
Deal with it lady.

This is why I have deliberately avoided even attempting to learn any form of martial art. There are far too many people within contemporary society, who I would not be able to resist the temptation to use it on.
As for why it keeps happening; it happens because between 4-7% of the human population are psychopaths. They are literally demons in human form. They look like us, and sound like us, but they are not us. They don't feel pity, remorse, or empathy; sometimes they don't even feel fear.
Our reaction to them should be to identify them, expose them, and then euthanise them like the sick animals they are. Instead, however, we allow them to become our rulers, and the literal architects of our society.
The result of this, is the world you see before you.edit on 17-8-2011 by petrus4 because: (no reason given)

While the parents are so busy playing mind games with each other; so busy trying to one-up each other, what is happening to their kids and to our future?

Not to trivialize your whole post but this line really stood out to me. I could write a three page essay on that sentence alone. Very insightful post.

people are too into themselves to help others
i don't think men care about "being a man" anymore
This is the truth. I have never seen a more lazy and complacent generation of young men and women in my life. Give them an iphone with hundreds of apps and they need nothing else much in life. They said that the 70's was the me generation but I think they got that wrong. This generation is the ME myself and I generation.
It's not really fair to say there are no real men out there, because there are good men who love their families and will do anything for them. But in general, stick a new shiny toy in front of someone and they don't have time to notice much of anything else.
