Currently I am reading Bertrand Russell's "The Conquest of Happiness".

For those unfamiliar Russell was a famous 20th-century philosopher, he was a brilliant guy writing simpler texts like these but also complex mathematical logical proofs.

In his book he makes points that many here would disagree, but also many that we would agree with.

One quote of his on women really stood out to me.

"In many women, especially rich society women, the capacity for feeling love is completely dried up, and is replaced by a powerful desire that all men shoulder love them. When a woman of this kind is sure that a man loves her, she has no further use for him"

This really struck him as he is mostly a romantic and talks much of the greatness of love. So to have him say this is really striking.

I also believe this is very true, truer now than it was when he wrote it. His perspective in the text seems to be that this is a new symptom of our society that provides everything and leaves women not needing protection or sustenance.

Now think about the fact this is a perspective from the 1920s.

I can't begin to say how much truer this has become.
