The Sickness of Europe

Richard Forsyth

Viktor Orbán: Native Population Decline Is The "Sickness Of Europe"

I just came across this talk from the Hungarian Prime Minister, Viktor Orbán, about what he refers to as the “sickness of Europe” and what is behind it. This speech is potentially about a lot of things, but I wanted to comment on the relationship between civilization and families. Prime Minister Orban talks about what he sees as a crisis in Europe—the erosion of western culture—due to population decline. He says that Europeans aren't having babies and they're not forming families, and this could mean the end of much of European culture.

In his speech, some things he said in particular caught my attention:

“We win only if we can build a system where those who bear children live significantly better than if they hadn’t started a family,” he said."

And then later, he adds:

“Without families and children, the national community will disappear… and if a nation disappears, something irreplaceable will disappear from the world.”

First let me say that Fascinating Womanhood is not against immigration or any particular culture. We do not feel that western culture is patently superior, either. Cultures evolve over time and not all tradition is worth defending, though much of it is a product of generations of wisdom and should be cherished as a kind of inheritence from our forebears. Where we think Mr. Orban is on the right track is with regards to the two above statements.

It's undeniable that family is the basic building block of communites and nations. No such collective can be stronger than its families because they are the incubators of their future productive members, in terms of competency and capacity for healthy interaction with each other—i.e, the creation of more families, and thus perpetuation of community and nation. When we lose the good that we've built over generations, something precious indeed is lost and this is to be resisted at all costs.

Mr. Orban suggests financial incentive to families willing to raise children, and we applaude this but feel like it's the equivalent of placing a bandaid over a broken leg. It doesn't really resolve the source of the illness, it only temporarily treats a symptom. To get to the heart of the problem, we must examine why people are disinclined to have kids and raise families.

Personally, I think it's in large part owing to a rise in self-centeredness and a decrease in principles.

Many cultures today reflect a myopic view of community through an emphasis on personal lifestyle, the acquisition of wealth and property, fame and power, over the relatively risky but much more far-sighted and rewarding task of raising a family. It's said that "you only live once," but at Fascinating Womanhood, we believe the author of a well-crafted legacy can live forever in the memories of its beneficiaries. We believe that we can make the world a far better place one person and one family at a time.

At Fascinating Womanhood, we teach that when we focus on improving ourselves, remembering that we can only change ourselves and not others, we can cultivate something we call "feminine power" and become women of great character. And if we are blessed with the noble calling of motherhood, whether literally or figuratively, we can exercise enormous influence on the next generation, teaching them to be personally powerful and instilling within them a strong sense of principles like courage, humility, honor, charity, self-restraint, and self-improvement. These are the building blocks of great people, strong families, healthy communities, and cultures who's values are worth preserving.

   I had felt saddened and even guilty for some time because my greatest personal satisfactions were not found in my home. I enjoyed my family and household responsibilities but somehow, I felt they were things to hurry through so I could find time for the “real individual me.” My little fames and glories came mostly through church service or in public callings. With five lovely children and a sixth expected soon, I felt strongly that home should be the place where my most rewarding triumphs should be taking place. So, I was ready and anxious to take the Fascinating Womanhood class when it was held in our area. It was the answer!

   Through the dissecting of Angela-Human I found the areas that had held me up and the places where concentration must be heavy. I gained confidence in trying little new things around the house that I had thought at one time to be silly and unnecessary.

   The family sensed immediately that I felt a new interest in our home and they took time to boost my efforts to continue. My husband thoroughly enjoyed my new capers in trying to understand him and though we had always had a marvelous relationship, it too began to grow more meaningful and deeper. I am finding that my home really can be the place that fulfills the “real me”.

Thanks for Waking Me Up

   My father passed away when I was four. My mother, a widow with four small children, was forced to be the man of the house as well as the mother. She had a very aggressive personality, and this only increased my feeling that women are the same as men. She never remarried. I grew up rather proud of mom’s aggressiveness and capabilities.

   At the age of 20 I married an easy-going man who adored me. Because it was so easy to influence, I did just that and influenced him to my sorrow. I ended up doing almost all of the chores around the house, even the ones that he should have done.  I honestly believed he was lazy and not interested in the home. Like my mother, I ruled the roost. We had only one child, a daughter. Years went by and I was taking over all the jobs around the house.

   A couple of years ago I began having menstrual troubles and thought I was going through the change. Doctors found that I had many tumors inside my female organs and last year I had a complete hysterectomy and ovariotomy. I was afraid now I was an “it.”

   I happened to have a very wise daughter who had recently become engaged. She brought me a book to read while I was recovering. The title was “Fascinating Womanhood.” I read it twice. It was with a great deal of pain, sorrow, and remorse, mingled with happiness that I read this book. I was glad my husband was still alive so I could try to make up to him for the years I had spend being the man of the house.

   Now I am more feminine than I was before my surgery. That book is so right. At first I thought it wouldn’t work with my husband, but it has. Now he mows the lawn, vacuums the cellar, takes out the garbage, and does all the heavy or masculine work I thought I had to do before. I only wish I had known about Fascinating Womanhood before.

   My husband does see a change in me. He thinks it is due to better health. I have not told him about Fascinating Womanhood. The psychological influence on me is something you would find hard to believe. I now have some lacy, frilly blouses in my closet and only wear slacks when I work in my flower garden. It is nice to know I don’t have to do even that.

   My husband and I have so much to share now I pray to God that He lets us have many happy years together where I can be completely feminine and enjoy his masculinity. I find that God really meant that women be feminine. It is a joy to at last be free from nervous tension and devote my time solely to wifely pursuits. I wish you could see my hubby. He is spontaneous and happy. Thanks for waking me up in time.

Intense Love

   I visited my sister for 7 weeks and every night when she heard her husband’s car coming up the road, tears of joy would fill her eyes. I thought that was pretty nice, but really couldn’t understand how any woman would be that happy when her husband came home from work.

   Then, this year, I joined a Fascinating Womanhood class. Now I can easily understand how she feels. When I hear my dear husband’s, car pull into the driveway, I get a lump in my throat and feel tears welling up in my eyes. Thank you, FW, for being intense love into my marriage!

I'm Going to be a Lady if it Kills Me!

   As I was getting ready to leave after my last class, a sweet lady who had not volunteered a single word during the entire Fascinating Womanhood class came up to tell me how much it had helped her. She said she had had quite a rough life—she had even done welding. After the character lesson, she decided to go on a fast. Then she went to the bank with her husband and he remarked, “Didn’t you eat anything for breakfast?” She said she was on a fast. “I’m going to be a lady if it kills me!” (referring to learning the Fascinating Womanhood principles).  He said, “Well, I guess we will really be saving on our food bill.” But she knew he was very impressed.

   A few nights later, she was watching TV, sprawled out on the floor with her curlers in her hair and her husband said, “Honey, I was just thinking…”. She thought, “Oh dear, I’m such a mess! I’ll bet he’s going to make some nasty comment.” But he said, “We’ve been married for 17 years—how about trying for 18?” Needless to say, she was just thrilled!

I Was a Nervous Wreck

   I don’t know if most of you realize this, but when you get to middle-age, you change. This is what happened to me and I was a nervous wreck. At the time, I enrolled in a Fascinating Womanhood class and was taking 6-8 different pills—pills to pick me up, pills to put me to sleep, etc.

   Now I have found inner happiness and no longer take pills. My daughter and her family moved home with us and we have nine people and six dogs living at our house now, so you can imagine how hard it is to keep a calm, sweet, spirit, but I have learned that if I will always put my husband first, everything goes along fine!

Fascinating Womanhood Renews a Man

   About three years ago, my husband had serious cancer surgery and extensive treatments. It left his face scarred and changed. Less than a year later, he was involved in a horrible car accident that broke his back, injured his spine, and scarred his face even more. For six months he lived in a back brace and we weren’t sure what damage had been done.

   During that time, I became aware of how deeply I loved him and what a truly fine father he was to our four children. Fearing that we might lose him, I desired to make whatever stay he had more tranquil and full. A neighbor told me about Fascinating Womanhood and became my husband was so prone to long and dark moods, I decided to give the book a try. It was such a revelation! God was so good to lead me to such knowledge. I put it into practice immediately.

   I found that in our situation, admiration for manly qualities was especially helpful. I think he secretly feared for his loss of strength in the accident and for part of his beard being destroyed due to cancer treatments. To my amazement, I realized that I couldn’t give him enough praise! The more I heaped on, the stronger he became. I even admired his scars. I told him they were war wounds, truly received in the line of battle; also, that they gave his face a fierce and rugged look. He amazed friends, neighbors, and especially doctors when suddenly he began taking over the complete management of the yard. At first, he wanted me to learn to run our big power mower, but I refused! In a childlike manner I told him that it took a whole lot of muscle to run such a monstrosity. I had none, and he had plenty. Not only did he start mowing the lawn, but one day, in our front yard, while I stood by oohing and awing, he laid about a fifty-foot strip of cement! And he did so joyfully and proudly!

   Had I not read your book, in trying to make him happy, I would have kept him an invalid. I am so very grateful to you and to God for leading me to these truths. Thank you, you are always in my thoughts and prayers.

The Last Year Has Been The Happiest of My Life

~ By an Anonymous Contributor

   I grew up in an unhappy marriage. Mom and Dad were always fighting. Many nights I cried myself to sleep hoping and praying that they would stop fighting ad love each otherAs a result of Mom and Dad’s unhappy marriage, I decided that I would never marry. I knew I didn’t have the knowledge necessary for a successful happy marriage and I didn’t want another child to live in the battlegrounds as I had.

   One day about 2 years ago, I changed my mind about marriage and about men’s and women’s roles in life. After years of doing everything I could to discourage boyfriends, I began encouraging them. I stopped competing with men and became more feminine. I even changed my college major to one more suitable for the “new me.” I was happier than I had ever been. I was in love with life.

   What brought about this change? A wonderfully perceptive roommate saw what was wrong with my attitude about life and gave me her copy of Fascinating Womanhood to read. I still have to work hard and there are things that I forget, but the last year has been the happiest of my life.

   I have been married about a year to the world’s most perfect husband. I wonder how I ever thought that I couldn’t make a marriage work. Thank you with all my heart. Fascinating Womanhood has given me my most prized possession—a happy content husband who can’t give me enough.

   As for Mom and Dad, your book is helping them have a happier marriage too. Mom has read Fascinating Womanhood and is working hard to get her marriage working right. Last night Daddy bought her a new stove that she had mentioned she’d like to have. The change in this marriage makes me thrilled. May God bless you and may Fascinating Womanhood come into the hands of every woman in the world.

Earth-Shaking Results

Earth Shaking Results.jpg

   I have always been happily married (14 years) and have a marvelous husband so as I read Fascinating Womanhood, I was thinking how this could help Jan or Mary. Then it seemed so easy and like magic that I thought I best put it to work. Well, let me tell you, I could hardly believe the response. I thought perhaps two areas were overstated a bit, so I tried them.  My husband reacted exactly as you said he would. I stand back amazed at the simplicity of Fascinating Womanhood, yet the profound truths are nothing short of earth-shaking!!

   Needless to say, it is hard to be quiet about something that can change marriages into happy, loving units with two partners working together, rather than opposing each other. The very same week, I read Fascinating Womanhood, three women came to me saying they were ready to walk out on their husbands—that they’d “had it.” Now I had some concrete help to give them. I know you’ll believe me when I say that one of the women 3 weeks later farmed out her 3 children and she and her husband wet on a week’s “honeymoon.” The second woman realized she was guilty of self-righteousness and 2 weeks later there was giggling back in their home. The 3rd woman wouldn’t try one thing and their marriage is still on the rocks.

Your Feminine Advantage in the Workplace

Not long ago a friend of mine, Olivia, had a temperamental boss who was the CEO of a very successful business. On her first day of work, she was warned that he was a beast to work for and that she should be tough with him. He had recently burned through a long string of female assistants who had, apparently, each run from his office screaming about unfairness before quitting. The most recent girl had lasted all of one month. Olivia decided instead to be patient with him and try to understand him, along with his idiosyncrasies.

It wasn’t long before she began to see the human being beneath his crusty exterior. One day… [continue reading]

Stay-At-Home Moms (Starts at 49:34)

A recent study by Salary.com, found that the salary of a stay-at-home mom is valued at around a hundred thousand dollars. I don’t know anyone that would argue that being a stay at home mom is hard work, but there’s seems to be a cultural pushback to it now-a-days. Here to talk to us about the value and struggles of being a stay at home mom is Dixie Andeline Forsyth, author of Fascinating Womanhood for the Timeless Woman.

For Better or Worse

For Better or Worse.png

~ By an Anonymous Contributor

   My religion taught me to accept God’s ways, but it did not stress also accepting man’s. “For better or for worse” is fine, but no one said how to act when the worst in one’s husband is showing. All of these problems were really weighing down on me where even prayer did not seem to help. Then a friend asked me to attend a Fascinating Womanhood class. It was a lucky day for me. It was like looking in a mirror and seeing your faults and having the answers ready.

   It’s hard to believe the changes in our lives. My husband recently told a friend, “I have never been so much in love with my wife as I am right now.” We have come a long way back to the first beautiful years of our married life together, when I was so proud of everything he did.

   From the bottom of my heart I would like to thank my teacher for teaching me these principles. I will say, “I can light one small candle instead of cursing the darkness!” I would like to shout Fascinating Womanhood’s merits from the housetops!

From Painful Money Problems to Peace

Richard Forsyth

~ By an Anonymous Contributor

   Fascinating Womanhood was a God-send to me, through a friend. I have achieved more “equality” in 4 months from living Fascinating Womanhood than I had ever dreamed of from 10 ½ years of demanding my rights.

   Living on a ranch, our financial problems are simply not bringing in enough money for our products we raise and sell. In trying to buy our small place, it’s been a hard struggle with year-round living on borrowed money. When we first moved here, I insisted on “doing the books” to learn the whole of the cattle business. I spent about 5 years in deep worry and depression concerning our finances. We yearned for a vacation but couldn’t even afford the expense of gasoline to go, let alone all of the other things we needed for our family of five children.Panicky, I tried numerous money-making ideas—digging and selling worms, leatherwork, cake decorating, sewing, mending, etc. Each one fell through, or the profits were hardly worth the trouble.

   Upon reading Fascinating Womanhood, I decided to turn the books over to my husband. He resisted, but I kept insisting. He took it over and if he mentions I should do it again, I say, “No, you do a good job so it remains yours.”

   We still can’t afford small inexpensive vacations or possessions, but since turning the books and bills over to him, I can feel myself gradually relaxing my worry over money problems. I have improved every aspect of our life together. I’m not perfect, but I believe FW is a wonderful goal to strive for. Because I know God had the book sent to me, I have sought to know God through the power of prayer and to have his spiritual guidance in my everyday life. I am amazed at how He works His mysterious ways to teach and guide each one of us and especially through others!

   My outside being is no longer depressed or bitter as it once was, but is cheerful and happy. The deep inner side of me is becoming increasingly meaningful with a sense of inner quietness—more than I ever dreamed I could build in myself.

A Stagnant Marriage Blossoms

We looked like the model couple on the outside, but there was so much emptiness it hurt. We were not really unhappy, but neither were we truly happy. I had come to abandon my original idea of romantic love and marriage. However, I still prayed occasionally for ways to improve our stagnant marriage.

Then a friend introduced me to Fascinating Womanhood and loaned me her book. I bought and read the book and since have spread my enthusiasm to others. My marriage is now so perfect that it is hard to find a chance to practice childlikeness—there are so few moments of friction! I now enjoy a tender love from my husband which he never had shown before.

A friend who was on the verge of divorce borrowed my book. Her husband had given her 30 days grace before he would leave. He told her to sell their house and said he didn’t love her anymore—after thirteen years of marriage. She was guilty of many serious mistakes. But she recognized them and was willing to work hard to save her marriage.

Several months have passed now and although their problems are not over, they have come a long way from their bed of troubles. I know of many other instances here where the advice in Fascinating Womanhood has been put to good use. How thankful we all are!

Back to a United Home

I want to tell you briefly about how God used Fascinating Womanhood as a tool in my life. My husband and I were separated at my suggestion—then, later, I began to have many regrets as God began to show me myself.

One evening, as I had been praying and crying, a dear friend called me out of the blue and wanted to know how I was. She was somewhat aware of my problems, but I didn’t talk to her very often. I told her and she then explained why she had called. She had run across this book, Fascinating Womanhood and thought it would be a tremendous help to me. She said she would try to get me a copy. She called me the next night and said she had obtained a copy and I went to pick it up.

I began to read, and it didn’t take long to see more and more of myself and my many errors in a dealing with my husband and our marriage. God used this book in a very real way and I continue to thank Him for it; for the people who wrote and published it and also for my dear friend who remembered me. My husband responded very quickly to the advice I followed in the book.

My husband came home almost immediately—the next day, in fact, even though he was dubious.

Some people who read the book did not understand why I didn’t already know these things—I guess that I just missed out somewhere, but I thank God that He knew I needed a step-by-step guideline. He also helped me to do what was required with a sincere change of heart, attitude and behavior!

Testimonial from a Female Marriage Counselor

Richard Forsyth

IMG_6566-618.jpg

~ By an Anonymous Contributor

   My husband and I were separated, and our divorce was to be final in two months when I began reading Fascinating Womanhood. We are now back together and very, very happy. We are so happy and so close it is as though we just got married. When I found FW, I discovered so many things I’d done that were wrong. I was completely unaware of these things before.    I used other men as shining examples, my husband withdrew and our communication was nothing I was always too busy with my housework to spend any time sitting in front of the TV with him. I nagged and pushed him, telling him what a cold person he was. I thought I was a wonderful wife, and it was his fault our marriage wasn’t working out. I was unaware of the importance of a man’s ego and pride. I didn’t realize how they need to be admired by their wife.    After reading Fascinating Womanhood, I convinced my husband to come back and give our marriage another try. He wasn’t too willing but did come back just the same. By this time, he was saying he didn’t l I am a professional marriage counselor and I have recently finished taking the Fascinating Womanhood course. I have attended these classes as a participant and not a spectator, because my main goal in life is to be a good wife and homemaker.

It would be difficult to describe how much this course has meant to me. Perhaps if I give you some of my professional background you can better understand the impact this course has had on my marriage.

I am a psychiatric social worker with a master’s degree in social work, as well as a degree in psychology. Since graduation, I have attended hundreds of lectures, institutes, seminars and workshops on the diagnosis and treatment of the individual, marital and family problems. Certainly my education and additional training has helped me to be more effective as a marriage counselor, but I can’t honestly say that it has helped me to be a better wife.

For the past 16 years I have been married to a strong, silent type of man who “speaks softly and carries a big stick.” As far as he’s concerned, “him Tarzan and me Jane” and if I give him any of my psychological mumbo-jumbo, he might just hit me with that big stick.

Although we have had a good marriage, until I took this course I had never really accepted his basic premise about our respective roles in the household, and this has been a source of some friction.

Believe me, living Fascinating Womanhood has been the best thing that ever happened to our marriage. For the past few weeks I have devoted most of my energies to studying, assimilating, and incorporating the principles set forth in Fascinating Womanhood. It hasn’t been easy, but my efforts have not been in vain. I can’t remember a time when my husband has been as happy, self-confident, loving, and considerate. As a matter of fact, he is the happiest Tarzan I know!

He wasn’t too willing but did come back just the same. By this time, he was saying he didn’t love me and was happier living without me and my nagging. Now he tells me every day that he loves me.    Each and every day something happens which makes me more aware of the changes Fascinating Womanhood has brought about in me. My husband has become very attentive, very tender and loving, all because I build his ego, accept him at face value, and have given him the freedom he needs. I also have made time away from housework so I can watch TV with him, or go off on the spur of the moment with him, instead of worrying so much about my housework getting done. HE now is helpful around the house—even with dinner and the dishes!

   We are so happy now, I never let a day pass without telling him how happy I am with him. I think Fascinating Womanhood should be every woman’s Bible, no matter how happily married she may already be. Fascinating Womanhood can help everyone! I know, because Fascinating Womanhood saved my marriage. I have talked many of my friends into reading it and I am now reading it a second time.

Exchanging Anger for Love and Peace

   My husband has had “woman trouble” all of his life First, his mother drove him to distraction and later I did more than my share. She had a genuine contempt for men and succeeded very well in making my husband feel resentful, even when he was a small boy. Naturally, as he grew older these feelings intensified and he reached adulthood with the motto: “Reject and humiliate women before they have a chance to do the same to you.”

   Later, I came into the picture, accustomed to gentleness, daily compliments, and every sort of cheerful kindness. This is the way my father treated my mother and I expected a triple dose (at least!) of this same chivalry from my husband.

   Instead of chivalry, I received ridicule, harshness, neglect and even physical mistreatment. The poison his mother had planted was doing its work. This was before I had heard of Fascinating Womanhood, so I didn’t know how to respond. Instead, I vowed; “I’ll give it back to him as fast as he can dish it out!” And I did!

   At least once a week there was a horrible screaming argument and every day our conversation consisted of nothing but the most barbed sarcasm we could produce. The physical abuse still continued. Once I even found it necessary to call the police but my husband ripped the phone cord out of the wall as I was dialing. Finally, things got so bad I locked myself in our bathroom and tried to slash my wrists. My husband broke down the door and dragged me to the local hospital. I was there for several months during which time I had electric shock treatments.

   Later, we both had psychiatric counseling and my husband improved a lot, but the damage was done—I was anything but fascinating. I kept comparing him to my father, for example.

   Then I began to attend these marvelous classes and now everything is so much happier and simpler. I exchanged my old attitudes for new ones; malice for sympathy, ridicule for understanding and indifference for admiration. I have applied the principles of femininity and gotten chivalry in return.

   The most valuable lesson in the whole of Fascinating Womanhood for me was the section on childlikeness. It is wonderful to be able to channel my anger properly so that I receive from my husband a delighted chuckle instead of a temper tantrum! During the two months of the Fascinating Womanhood course, I have been showered with presents, compliments and attention! Obviously, my husband is convinced that I’m really for him and no longer against him.

Husband Ignores His Children

   The greatest problem in my marriage was my husband’s lack of understanding of our children. The only time he ever noticed them at all was to scream at them for something they’d done wrong. I also had little respect for myself. Since gaining 40 pounds with my fourth child, this feeling was increasing steadily.    The first four lessons in Fascinating Womanhood depressed me, because I could see that I was failing.  I was failing to understand my husband, to make him No. 1, and was also failing in my role as a homemaker. I also had little self-respect. Each lesson became harder to attend. If I hadn’t worked so hard to earn the money to enroll, I would have dropped out.    Then came the miracle lesson on self-dignity.  I came home rom class this night feeling on top of the world. From this time on, everything seemed to improve for us.    One night after we got to bed, I brought up the problem of his neglecting the children by saying how badly the children needed him. I was also sympathetic with his problems, admired him, and spoke to him in a childlike way.  He began to tell me how he had neglected the children and how he had to spend more time with them and recognize the good they did. Since this time, there is a completely different feeling between my husband and the children. It is wonderful!

   Isn’t it amazing, ladies, how a few sentences can completely remake a man’s attitude!    Before Fascinating Womanhood, when we have been in the company of friends, my husband had made belittling remarks about me in a joking manner. Since Fascinating Womanhood, much to my surprise, when we go out with friends, he compliments me and even opens the car door for me.    I really needed the lesson on femininity! I have improved my dress and do not do masculine jobs around the house. Now my husband offers to do the jobs I used to do, thinking I was helping him. I have seen a wonderful change in both of us since I have started to dress more feminine.
