How to Treat Members not in the Group

The war of standards, or what rule of etiquette?

A question that will become more important as people realize that the modern nation-state, especially as it has been manipulated by those in power through immigration, is no political community.

What are the proper norms for interpersonal relations, especially members of the opposite sex? While it is not necessary to antagonize strangers without reason, how should men respond to hostile women or feminists? Someone would say that we should uphold chivalry or previous codes of conduct for gentlemen. But is that a proper response to those who are hostile to us and may even seek to destroy our livelihoods? Sociability/affability is a virtue require for living with others -- but this may be restricted to those with whom one forms a community. For those who have shown themselves to not be allies, avoidance, silence, or some word of disapproval or rejection may be necessary and justified. Some may fear economic retaliation in the workplace by SJWs -- that is a legitimate consideration. But should men be willing to cut ties with those who do not share the same culture nor seek to be a part of their community? I think so -- the cutting of ties is the last remedy with respect to those who will not change their behavior, and men need to be willing to go through with it in order to protect themselves, their families, and their communities. This may require that they change jobs or where they reside, so that they can live with integrity.

"But that's not being nice!" Or, "you're alienating someone instead of being Christ to them." If they are of good will and can accept correction, then correction can be given. Otherwise, it is they who have alienated themselves by embracing a prideful, unnatural ideology that is detrimental to women, men, and society at large. Perhaps if enough virtuous people (especially men) signal to them that their acceptance of this ideology and any other objectionable behavior is unacceptable they may seek to change and be reconciled.

What about African-American community? If they do not seek to observe white standards of conduct or be part of white America, then what is to be done other than separation?

Was Lloyd Alexander a feminist? Certainly Eilonwy is a princess who hates being treated like a mere "girl" -- does she learn a lesson later in the trilogy? Or are the books written by someone ignorant of the real dangers of a barbaric age, and the necessity for women to seek protection from men?
