Hi Everyone Sandman Here,
This video is brought to you by a donation from Alex and here's what he has to say: "Thank you Sandman for your work. If you find that "The Apostate" by Jack London is not good as a topic please feel free to pick another. I'd like to share with you my recent rediscovery this short story. Can you please tell me your thoughts about it. This is a 10 page story about a kid who was exploited by his mother. At the end the kid went his own way. I remember back in Russia this novel served the purpose to highlight the disadvantages of Capitalism. Now I see it from a MGTOW perspective. It makes perfect sense. Thanks again" Well Alex thanks for the donation and topic. Well Alex thanks for the donation and topic. I'll get to it in a moment but let me first tell everyone about today's sponsor Surviving 4th Wave Feminism: Anyways, now back to the government of the Soviet Union trying to twist a story from Jack London into propaganda away. Let me sum up the story first and then I'll discuss the MGTOW element as well as why the soviets would want their children to read a story like that from an American Author. The story is about Johnny. He's a young lad and his mother nags him to get up while threatening to cut him off from food if he doesn't get out of bed. He didn't care and kept sleeping. So she then physically starts to remove the bed sheets with her son still sleeping on them. He clung to them and wouldn't let them go. He finally gave in as she ripped most of the sheets off the bed and it was cold for him. She prepared some terrible coffee for him that he thought was actually good. So he leaves home after not really getting enough to eat and has to work in a dirty factory so he could bring a paycheck home to support him mother because he's what amounts to a son husband. Johnny seems to be working in a textile mill where some of the earliest factories in the industrial revolution and he is held up as an ideal worker. One the factory overseers comes over to him and asks him his age and he says 14. An overseer and inspector question his health and talk about some new law that was introduced. I'm guessing it has something to do with child labor. They leave Johnny alone but go and pick on some 12 year old one legged boy that's working there. They lead him out of the room and we the readers think he's going to be fired. After work he goes home to his family for supper and he's more like an old and irritable man instead of a child. After eating his brothers and sisters came out and started to play while all he wanted was peace and quiet and sleep. Johnny was the oldest so he had to take care of his brothers and sisters while his mother used to work at the mill years earlier so he had to play the role of mother and father while she was gone working everyday. His brother Will is harassing him and Johnny tells him that he's tough not but just wait until you start working and that his mother is the one that's going to put him to work. His mother defends Will saying that he's too young to work. Johnny says he was younger when she put him to work sounding all resentful. We learn that he makes two dollars an hour which is the difference between
acute starvation and chronic underfeeding. Then for a while we hear about his story and how he worked his entire young life. In a way I can't help but think of that scene from Star Trek discovery where the actor playing Jack London where he meets Data says he used to be an oyster pirate, a prospector and a whole bunch of other careers. I kept thinking that Johnny is actually Jack.
