    Could #metoo destabilize society?

    As the number of prominent #metoo victims swells, has anyone stopped to consider how this may erode the leadership in a growing number of sectors? These men, filanderers or not, presumably rose to their positions on account of being the best in some way or another (even if this was by being corrupt, which is a competency in itself).
    In theory, any powerful/influential man could be taken down with ease by wielding the #metoo hammer.
    Is anyone else concerned that this trend could in fact hasten an Idiocracy-style decline by robbing society of so many of those whose expertise allows it to thrive?

    It looks like it is going the same way as the 1960 Cultural Revolution in China. While unlikely to get to such a stage, the parallels are alarming, especially to a Chinese like me.

    Seriously, just read this article:

    https://www.theguardian.com/world/20...cal-convulsion

    And let me show the most chilling quote:Gangs of students and Red Guards attacked people wearing “bourgeois clothes” on the street, “imperialist” signs were torn down and intellectuals and party officials were murdered or driven to suicide.

    What did the cultural revolution cause?

    "Historians believe somewhere between 500,000 and two million people lost their lives as a result of the Cultural Revolution.
    Perhaps the worst affected region was the southern province of Guangxi where there were reports of mass killings and even cannibalism.

    Appalling acts of barbarity also occurred in Inner Mongolia where authorities unleashed a vicious campaign of torture against supposed separatists.
    Even China’s feline population suffered as Red Guards tried to eliminate what they claimed was a symbol of “bourgeois decadence”. “Walking through the streets of the capital at the end of August [1966], people saw dead cats lying by the roadside with their front paws tied together,” writes Dikötter."

    Now let us replace "bourgeois clothes" with "sexist clothes", "imperialist signs" with "misogynistic signs" and "intellectuals and party officials" with "prominent and important men".

    You see the connection yet? You see how dangerous #metoo can potentially get? Evidently the Chinese Communist Party did as well, because they shut down the movement, their censors practically wiping it off the internet.

    I do not condone sexual harassment, but #metoo looks like it is evolving into the witch hunts, inquisitions and crusades. Hope the West does not descend into anarchy. I have three and a half years left until I complete my degree.

    I think it's an "Awakening" of sorts, in which men will create opportunities for men only, once they leave the gynocratic positions they are in of course.

    I too view it as an opportunity for men to see the real picture and to find new paths through business and life in general. I would argue it is easier to go your own way when things destabilize like this because you are not caught off guard by poundmetoo. Also this has been the default operating mode if you already have knowledge of gynocentric society. So, there is no learning curve or large adjustment period for men in that category that they have to grapple with.

    I don't think there will be anything dramatic. There will be a quiet revolution. Fewer and fewer companies will hire women. I am not talking about corporations. They are beyond hope. I am talking about small to medium size businesses. These are companies managed and owned by men. They will not hire women. Given that 50% of the population is employed by small businesses, women are going to have a difficult time getting a job.

    In corporations, men will practice a self imposed workplace apartheid. They will avoid women. In Korea, it's already happening.

    Quietly, men will adjust their behavior in the workplace and protect themselves and their careers. They will not hire and/or interact with women.
