Modern feminists almost without exception are socialists and this is no coincidence. In fact this almost must necessarily be the case. This is because modern feminists think that there’s something fundamentally wrong with society, and so they seek to utilize the state to forcibly re-educate and re-engineer the populace as they see fit. Progressives in general recognize that their ideas stand little chance of surviving in a free market place of ideas, a fact which they of course attribute to the supposed ignorance and primitiveness of the average man. Be that as it may, they understand that their ideas can’t stand on their own, and so they naturally seek the over-reaching protective hand of government to assist them in paternalistically promoting these ideas to the society at large, supposedly for their(the society’s) own good.
