From time immemorial, deceitfulness has been portrayed – by men – as an attribute of women. But it is not the feminine that is deceitful. Deceitfulness is the method of the weak masculine, which is not able to assert its will in an open way. The masculine in men, as a rule and ideally, has been allowed to articulate its will and fight for it openly at any point and at any time. This is the way that the mind sees as straight. The masculine, the acting, in the woman was – and often still is – suppressed. Only hidden acting for the own protection remains to him. Therefore the deceitfulness is also the attribute of the suppressed masculine in men. Wherever the mind cannot act without being harmed, it acts in secret. Irrelevant whether he does it in a woman or in a man.
Since the world is defined by men, they call covert action „deceitfulness“ and naturally attribute this negatively connoted quality to women, who are forced to act in this way in the first place by the materialistic male system (just like the oppressed men). „Deceitfulness“ is a symptom of the skewness of materialistic society. The individual, be he man or woman, cannot freely choose his way of acting.
