As I wrote in a previous blog post, modern "progressive" feminism is highly authoritarian, and seeks to control, censor, silence, ban and even criminalize dissenting opinion. It is, in fact, becoming more and more frequent for such social justice warriors to outright openly say that free speech is a bad thing, an antiquated concept, and that it should be limited. Many of them aren't even beating around the bush about it, but just outright state it.
The frightening thing is that this exact branch of "progressive" feminism, the highly authoritarian and anti-constitutional kind, is extremely virulent, and extremely powerful. It is represented not only by regular citizens, but all the way to high-ranking officials, politicians, members of the press, university professors, and so on. And in an alarmingly increasing manner.
Feminism, the wrong authoritarian kind, appropriates and invades everything. It's like Scientology: Infiltrate every major branch of our society, including the press, politics, and universities.
At this moment there is, effectively, an "invasion" happening at Yale University. "Progressive" social justice warriors are organizing protests for the slightest of excuses, and demanding for the president of the university to resign. Even though said president has done absolutely nothing wrong. He is not even accused of having done anything concrete. He's just being demanded to resign, because reasons.
Now, I'm not saying that most of them are doing it deliberately, but there is probably a major hidden reasons why they are demanding it: To have him replaced with a more "progressive" feminist.
If and when they reach their goals, it is surely to end up with Yale University spending more and more time and resources in, well, indoctrinating their students into authoritarian "progressive" feminism. Even more than it currently does. (There is, in fact, an amazing amount of "gender studies" and "critical race theory" courses currently at Yale. And these are the major reason why so many of their students see racism and sexism in every little thing, and are absolutely crazy about feminist theory and rhetoric, and why the university has become effectively a totalitarian hellhole. You wouldn't believe how much concepts like "white privilege", "microaggression", "safe spaces" and all kinds of other feminist buzzwords are thrown around there. And you wouldn't believe how much bullying is happening from the part of the feminists against anybody who dares to present a dissenting opinion.)
This is actually scary. Why? Well, consider this description of Yale University from Wikipedia: "Yale has graduated many notable alumni, including five U.S. Presidents, 19 U.S. Supreme Court Justices, 13 living billionaires, and many foreign heads of state. In addition, Yale has graduated hundreds of members of Congress and many high-level U.S. diplomats, including former U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and current Secretary of State John Kerry. Fifty-two Nobel laureates have been affiliated with the University as students, faculty, or staff, and 230 Rhodes Scholars graduated from the University."
If you want to conquer a country, infiltrate its leaders, its richest and most influential people, and the media. Control everything.
When the new generation of presidents, congressmen, supreme court justices and so on has been indoctrinated into this feminist "progressive" authoritarianism, an ideology that abhors constitutional freedom of speech and considers it dangerous, what exactly do you think will happen?
I predict now, on November 2015, that in the not-so-distant future more and more acts of free speech and free expression will be criminalized, especially those critical of progressive feminism and subjects closely related to it, in the United States, the United Kingdom, and some other western countries. More and more authoritarian measures will be implemented to combat opinions that they do not like, including technological measures to censor the internet, and implementing laws against people who would express such opinions. And the things which will be criminalized will be more and more mundane and trivial as more laws are passed. People will be incarcerated simply for objecting to this.
Constitutional "free speech" will not be abolished de jure, but it will pretty much de facto. It will be held in name only. Everything that they will criminalize will be declared as "not falling under constitutional free speech". Thus they will keep the charade of upholding the constitution, while still going blatantly against it.
