Don’t you feel sorry for Harvey Weinstein?
I do. I really do.
Poor guy is being made a scapegoat for all of humanity. Now, wait a minute. Let me explain.
All men, besides having been created equal, are also created with the strongest natural instinct to reproduce themselves, to procreate, to spread their seed, to impregnate every fertile female they come across during their lifetime.
For the first 50 or so years of their life, men are literally forced to think with their penis. This is no exaggeration. Being a man and having been younger than 50 at some point during my life, I can personally attest to this. Everything revolves around getting laid. Every move you make, every breath you take, every vow you break, ….now I digress….Everything you do is about knocking up women with wide enough pelvises to safely deliver your offspring, and large enough mammary glands to nurture them.
I know, I know. Over the course of the last 50,000 years we have been trying to domesticate our instincts. And since 5000 years ago we have actually been getting written notice to curb our beastly desires. Don’t kill, don’t covet, don’t steal, don’t lie, etc. But how successful have we been as a species at transforming our animal characteristics?
I dare say “ Not very successful at all.”
As soon as someone is powerful enough (and I mean men for the most part), they start rediscovering their animal heritage. They break all the rules, all the commandments. They forget about fifty millennia of domestication in a matter of seconds and revert back to being the monkey that we used to be, the monkey that, beneath the surface, we still are.
Harvey is just another powerful monkey who emerged after having shed his superficial human skin. He is in accord with nature, at one with it and his true self. Being surrounded with and in constant contact with the most beautiful women on this planet, women who would go to any length to make it in the entertainment business, Harvey has done the most natural thing a man can do.
Fault not Harvey Weinstein, fault the monkey.
