Appeal to Futility Fallacy—arguing that there is no point in doing something because nothing will change. A variation of “it’s all the same” and a close cousin of “Just shut up, please stop talking.” Example, “government is just human nature so there’s nothing we can do about its unlimited growth.”
Please beware of anyone who advocates for such a position. We try to bring about change one guy at a time here. That’s all we can do. Anyone, anywhere who insinuates that you should “just give up” is no friend of yours and no friend of men’s rights…period. I’ve noticed this approach a lot in the manosphere. More and more people saying “there’s nothing we can do the size of the state. It’s inevitable.” It’s no such thing. That’s a lie and merely an excuse to be lazy. Many of these individuals are afraid of their own freedom and if you are afraid of your own freedom you have no value as a men’s rights proponents. This is a no liar and no coward zone. Free men only.
Another variant of this approach is “there’s no right/left” due to history…meaning they weren’t always used in the same exact manner. In Russia, left and right could both be communists so…There is no “so.” The political spectrum can best be regarded as
Most of us who are involved with men’s rights believe in limited government. We are on the right side of the spectrum. Exactly where we sit depends on the individual, but all of us embrace individual freedom as our highest criteria. The crucial question that needs to be asked is “how does the welfare state benefit men?” The most common and correct answer to this question is, “It does not.” We need a safety net in society but not an omnipresent, omnipotent state structure that oppresses the individual.
