"The Golden Notebook” is the story of a woman, Anna Wulf, trying to break out of a prison of abstractions. Some of these abstractions are Marxian, some are Freudian, some are just the superstitions acquired by living in a society in which women's pain and pleasure count for less. The point (if one can speak this way about a novel) is not that Marxism, Freudianism, and sexism are bad—and We Shall Overcome. The point is that happiness is always threatened by abstractions, of whatever time or political tendency. In mid-century London, for a woman like Anna, Marx and Freud and self-absorbed boyfriends happened to be the forms that oppression took. Today, there are different invitations to self-destruction. Feminism, for instance."
I think it speaks volumes. Some things may have bad influence upon you though, at heart, they musnīt be necessarily bad; it is up to tou how you receive them or respond to them; if you let them to destroy your happiness. And no matter time or government, or whether it is feminism, utopian socialism or sexism.
