THE INTERNATIONAL MALE CONSPIRACY: A Final Revelation
By Sean O'Connell, Ph.D.
This exposť may amount to the most heinous and massive betrayal
in the history of humanity; I am betraying the entire male gender.
For millennia, probably since the invention of walking, men have happily
pledged their fidelity to the most closely guarded of secrets. As part
of a world-wide conspiracy, one whose sole aim is the absolute and
never-ending subordination of the entire female gender, every male on
the planet, every one, has promised to serve the cause faithfully and to
promote its masculine interests. But I must be the first to break with
the planetary tradition. I am a kind of Messiah for the New Age, and
hence expect to be reviled and scorned for the tidings I bring. I must
be the first for a couple of reasons.
Well, the first is not so much a justifying reason, as an excusing
condition. It's just that a few women, mainly sociologists, are on the
verge of figuring this out for themselves. The least I can do for the
brotherhood, if I am to betray it so monstrously, is to prevent a woman
from making the most important discovery of the last 1.5 million years.
My second reason is better. I have come to really love women, and I want
to see their suffering end. This, of course, is a double-cross, right at
the heart of masculi[ni]sm. The international male conspiracy is rooted in
misogyny and sadism, as feminists have recently begun to discern.
The facts surrounding this world conspiracy are really quite simple, so
simple, indeed, that it is a wonder that it took women so long to
suspect their sinister implications. One understands the dark and
malicious male plot if one understands one original fact: women once
ruled the earth. They were the first sex, genetically and historically.
Men were an evolutionary afterthought. The evidence for this is the
diminutive and lowly Y-chromosome. Because they were inferior, in every
existentially significant way, men were systematically relegated to
marginal functions and status, away from the mainstreams of life.
Here the story really begins. Small numbers of men, behind the backs of
their women, expressed discontent. Within a few centuries, the
phenomenon was international. Enclaves popped up on every continent and,
inevitably, the underground movement became a formal, fraternal
organization. The international male conspiracy was born.
The first world-wide congress convened in the Falkland Islands about
30,000 BC, and has met there annually ever since (the exact date is
unknown, since records were not maintained until about 3,500 BC, when
the movement invented writing as we now know it). This is why Britain
sent half its navy to rescue the Falklands; more than a few sheep were
at stake. The Admirals and Generals, all of them men (who very cleverly
brainwashed Margaret Thatcher into doing their dirty work for them),
knew that the planetary male privilege was vulnerable.
In the 31,994-year period since the first Falkland Congress, the
conspiracy has had an unbroken record of stunning breakthroughs and
successes in its devoted efforts to dehumanize, humiliate, subordinate,
exploit, oppress, enslave, disempower and terrorize women. Year after
year, these secret hives of patriarchy have produced brilliant male
inventions and subterfuges for keeping women in their proper place as
the pariahs of the planet.
I have just mentioned one. Men invented writing. After a few centuries,
they decided to teach it to a few women, but they did so in such a way
that they could never use it properly. This was the first instrument of
male dominance, and probably its most powerful one: Control the means of
communication and everything is yours. (In all these examples, it should
be noted that in the early stages of each new development, men have used
a small number of women as pawns in their deadly machinations. They
hypnotize these few to want what men already have, thus giving all other
women the mistaken idea that the wish originates in females.)
So the teaching of disordered language to women was the first of many
steps toward their complete enslavement.
From there, it was not a long step toward the invention of reason, logic
and science. Again, some recent feminist writers have pointed out that
these are exclusively male innovations, beautifully designed and
implemented in the interests of patriarchal power and privilege. They
are absolutely correct. They are tools of oppression and, consequently,
these feminists are on the right track when they abandon them entirely.
But what they do not know is how they work to male advantage. Here is a
case in point.
After men taught women how to read and how to write, they taught them
logic. This was in the fourth century BC. In fact, the proliferation of
reason in women followed swiftly after Aristotle explained his
principles of syllogistic reasoning to the Falkland Congress of 318 BC.
But we must remember that teaching logic to women was part of a male
conspiracy; hence we must expect there to be a diabolic, crafty
deception involved. Indeed there was. The first stroke of male genius
was to recognize what feminists insist on:
Reason, logic and science are foreign to the female psyche. They are
inhospitable invaders in the earthy domains of emotion, fertility,
intuition and nurturance. I need not argue this, since feminists have
done it so well. Even more brilliant though was the decision to teach
one incomplete and inconsistent system of language and logic to women,
while reserving the most fecund and efficacious systems for men. That is
why, as all men know after induction into the international
conspiratorial brotherhood, men speak and think in one system publicly
and in another system among themselves. The net result is that women,
who are not constitutionally disposed to thinking anyway (at least
according to some of their prominent ideologues), are chronically
confused, making them perpetually vulnerable to male oppression.
That is also why all major advances in thought have come from men. Since
they created reason, and since they have kept it to themselves, only
they know how to use it. Male reason invented the wheel, the first
spacecraft and everything in between. This is all evidence for the
feminist suspicion that a male conspiracy is at work. Plato, Aristotle,
Aquinas, Copernicus, Descartes, Galileo, Newton, Kant, Darwin, Marx and
Einstein are a few cases in (I exclude all the performing and literary
arts, which is another story with the same plot.)
The second most potent strategy to issue from the Falkland Congresses
was the control of socialization. Men discovered that women could be
kept in perpetual servitude if they were socialized to it. Now that men
had control over language and logic, they did not encounter much
difficulty in getting control over the content of speaking and thinking.
Two socializing institutions proved particularly effective; education
and religion. The conspiracy controls both of them. One provides the
means and the other provides the motivation.
The unending oppression of women was guaranteed when men realized that
one key would lock women into their roles for good. Again, using few
well placed pawns, the conspiracy convinced women all over the world
that motherhood was their special privilege. They told women how to
socialize their children to male advantage and female disadvantage. By
now, the international male conspiracy had become a complete success: it
had the mothers in its spell. After this, it was not very difficult to
brainwash almost all women into accepting (and vehemently defending) the
Myth of Female Privilege. It took more than a few Congresses to work out
this subtle, sinister plot. In fact, it was modified several times, and
in the course of its fine-tuning, men came as close as ever to
accidentally revealing their conspiratorial intentions.
The Myth plays upon the specious dignification, almost canonization, of
Motherhood. And since every woman is a potential or actual mother, the
men reasoned, why not hoodwink the entire sex into believing that every
woman is innately blessed with elevated status and privileges. Millions
of male martyrs have given up their lives and their seats on the bus in
order to preserve this myth in the minds of women.
The logic behind this epochal subterfuge is chillingly potent. By
granting a privileged status to women, men made them completely
vulnerable and dependent, standing in desperate need of physical
protection, the provision of life's necessities, and someone to tell
them what to think and what to feel. Naturally, male fascination with
female beauty and charm, the rhapsodic romanticization and glorification
of femininity, is all part of a conspiratorial smokescreen. Hell, men
have even convinced women that men need female company, friendship and
sympathy, to the extent that men are willing to fork over truckloads of
money to get and keep it.
As I said, many feminists are already familiar with my conspiracy thesis
and have gone so far as to promote it and provide empirical support for
it. But a final, decisive piece of information is missing before the
conspiracy can be fully comprehended, and it is this missing link I
intend to reveal.
It is this: feminism itself is the conspiracy's most deadly ploy. Men
have used feminism to divide and conquer women. Although it has not
caught on in every country, its effects have already been staggering:
Women are more disoriented and confused than ever.
That feminism is a male invention is easy to see. It makes its first
recorded appearance in Plato's Republic, in which women were given
equality with men, especially in the army. Plato also argued for
universal daycare and the abolition of marriage and the family, both
tenets of contemporary radical feminism. But feminism did not really
catch on until more than 2,000 years later, because a small but
influential fringe group insisted that the strategy was simply too
cruel. This "Wimp Factor," after several centuries, was finally declared
undesirable when another Falkland Congress voted to increase men's
efforts to confound women with feminist dogma.
Two delegates to the 1867 Congress, Karl Marx and John Stuart Mill,
later produced documents which were to become the ideological platform
for contemporary feminism. Not long after that, men manipulated women
into believing they wanted to vote and, presto, women were on the road
to equality with men. This, of course, was a most tragic step for women
and a thoroughly conclusive victory for the male conspiracy, dazzling in
its deception and execution.
One pivotal conception makes the conspiracy's exploitation of feminism
comprehensible, namely that men have collectively convinced women that
they should be more like men. But of course they can't, because the
tools of masculinity are the tools of oppression, and they are all in
the hands of the world conspiracy. So women are caught in a debilitating
contradiction. They shouldn't be women and they can't be men. Game over.
Let us examine just a few examples which demonstrate how the cunning
conspirators have turned feminism, that most elegant of all male
contrivances, to their own advantage.
First, under the banner buzz-word of "EQUALITY," the conspirators
beguiled women into thinking that one way they could he more like men
would be to behave more like men, sexually. "Cast off your traditional
shackles of modest femininity:" they hinted, "and liberate your loins.
Be free with your sexuality." So women discarded their bras, male
invention, much to the delight of men; they devoured birth-control
pills, much to the relief of men who invented them; and they provided
lots of uncommitted sex, much to the satisfaction of men.
Second, women tried to become more like men by relieving men of much of
their traditional drudgery and stupid work. Once women became convinced
that they could be equal, men tamed this idea against them and demanded
that they share equal obligations. "Provide for yourself' became part of
men's private language, so that larger numbers of families were headed
by women alone. And, of course, their economic hardship made them
particularly vulnerable to other male predators. The conspiracy wins
Third, and this fact is still incipient, women are beginning to accept
the idea that they can do all the fighting and killing. Men are still
waiting for their feminists to promote this idea with greater force,
although Canada has now graduated its first female combat pilots. The
conspiracy will savor its most delicious moment when every police force,
fire department and armed service is peopled by females. This will be
the greatest Victory of all: Women will he doing all the working and
fighting while men spend all their time fishing and plotting. Men will
even be relieved of domestic drudgery, because they have convinced a
number of very vocal women that fathers are constitutionally incapable
Brotherhood, you see, is powerful. The total destruction of womanhood is
by now virtually accomplished. But this fact contains an alarming
thought, which has been aired with increasing frequency at the last few
International Congresses. The fact is, men may have run out of
misogynist strategies! How do they top their invention of feminism
without resorting to old and obvious tricks? The situation is clearly
As I said at the outset, my main reason for revealing all these
conspiratorial secrets, for which I expect to pay dearly at the
blood-thirsty hands of the Brotherhood, is that I love women with
abundance and without shame. And if men are running out of strategies, I
am fearful of what they might do next out of sheer desperation.
There seems to be only one sure escape from the encroaching horrors
women face. Let us just describe it as creative counter-conspiracy. It
is the most potent retaliatory measure currently available to women. In
effect, it deploys all the conspiratorial weapons men have hitherto used
with such undisputed success. And since the weapons are conspiratorial
ones, their effective deployment presupposes one absolute, inviolable
condition: Women must conspire in total secrecy. This is crucially
It is beyond doubt that any female conspiracy will succeed only if it is
carried out in the same way men did it: privately, secretly, silently.
Any attempt to enlist male co-operation or support will torpedo the
first launch. Then women will be ruined forever.
Duplicity is the core of conspiracy. Hence, I suggest that women,
without delay, undertake the revamping of Western Civilization in toto,
replacing male language, logic, science, religion, art, philosophy,
education, economics, politics, industrialism, technology and the family
with female institutions completely incomprehensible to men. But every
step, every one, must be diabolically concealed from men and ruthlessly
executed with legerdemain, fraud, seduction, prevarication,
mystification and a satanically-false appearance of sincerity and
Only by doing this will women achieve reparation and revenge for the
grotesque suffering and indignities perpetrated upon them over the past
30,000 years by the Male Conspiracy. But, sadly, by doing this women
will also intensify what some take to be the natural state of relations
between the sexes: fear, hatred, suspicion, envy, competition and war.
And, more sadly, it will make it nearly impossible for anyone trying to
break free from such patent insanity to do so.
