Thread: Jennifer Lawrence, Libertarian Feminist?

  1. #1

    Default Jennifer Lawrence, Libertarian Feminist?



    Actress Jennifer Lawrence is in the news this week for a number of reasons, including her impromptu performance at a Vienna strip club and her stepping out in a $700 Dior T-shirt that proclaims "We Should All Be Feminists." The Daily Mail even devoted a whole article to the shirt, noting that "the 26-year-old actress beamed as she left the set of her film Red Sparrow with her dog—and a balloon—in tow." But the Mail fails to note the other thing that J-Law was spotted carrying: a book with famed Austrian economist Ludwig von Mises on the back cover.

    The Facebook group Being Classically Liberal first noted Lawrence's reading material yesterday, suggesting that perhaps she had picked up the von Mises book Socialism thinking it took a positive view of the subject. Lawrence—star of a slew of recent hit movies, including Joy, The Hunger Games, and American Hustle—has been outspoken in her criticism of conservative politicians (The Daily Beast even deemed her "Hollywood's Next Big Power Liberal").


    But some crowdsourced sleuthing revealed that Lawrence's book isn't by von Mises but about him and other Austrian School economists. The book—Invisible Hands: The Making of the Conservative Movement from the New Deal to Reagan—was written by New York University professor Kim Phillips-Fein and looks at the rise of free-market economics in post-New Deal America and the role that businesses played in shaping mid-20th Century conservatism.



    "Starting in the mid-1930s, a handful of prominent American businessmen forged alliances with the aim of rescuing America—and their profit margins—from socialism and the 'nanny state,'" says the publisher's blurb for the book. "Long before the 'culture wars' usually associated with the rise of conservative politics, these driven individuals funded think tanks, fought labor unions, and formed organizations to market their views."

    Doubtful but I hope she learns something. I believe she was a Hillary supporter.


    We're all allowed to be sad that the present isn't what we thought it was. But we mustn't be defeated. We will keep educating ourselves and working twice as hard as the man next to us because we know now that it is not fair. It is not fair in the workplace, so you make it impossible to fail. And like Hillary, it might not work.

    But like Hillary, you can still be an inspiration and get important things done. Do not let this defeat you—let this enrage you! Let it motivate you! Let this be the fire you didn't have before. If you are an immigrant, if you are a person of color, if you are LGBTQ+, if you are a woman—don't be afraid, be loud!

    Everyone already has equal rights. Groups don't have rights. There is no such thing as women's rights, gay rights, men's rights, etc. Yes, it's actually shocking how you progressives are not even aware of this.

    I'd guess TheCount is running around on campus unaware that women--even the hard core feminist women--totally loathe the male feminist.

    Then tell that to your friends at DU, who qualify the noun "rights" with every demographic adjective under the sun.


    men's rights
    women's rights
    children's rights

    black rights
    white rights
    Indian rights
    gay rights

    I put 'feminists think men should be less than equal to women' in the same camp as 'libertarians are white nationalists/racists.' It's a campaign to discredit/ignore the entire group using a handful of idiots among them as the justification to do so.
