We can only save the world by putting women in charge. Men have created the world’s problems, and must now step aside. It’s time to put Women In Charge.
Because of women’s ability to give life, women are innately more empathetic, compassionate, nurturing, better listeners, better at multi-tasking, organization, teamwork. These skills make women better able to lead a just society.
The Problem With Men As Societies’ Decision Makers
Men Are Too Goal Oriented Too See The Big Picture
Being goal focused narrows men’s ability to appreciate the big picture. This causes men to be blind to the consequences of their actions. This plays out in many ways. Focus on quarterly profits ignores inequities in wages, and environmental damage. Ridged focus on control to achieve goals, marginalizes all other voices and needs. Focus on even raising your children ignores the rest of the children in your community. Men exaggerate their ego and self-focus to the detriment of society and nature.
Men are programmed to satisfy their immediate needs.
A difference between men and women is that men can see the consequences of their decisions, but will then proceed to justify their actions. But women feel the consequences and can improve their actions.
Sure, some men are wonderful, but as a whole, they have created and perpetuate a society in which we have to destroy the world to live. Men give society no alternative. We have monopoly government, winner take all elections, and corporations influencing elections as persons. Winning is all that matters. Men are great at building corporation-monsters that feed the masses, and destroy the world creating billions for themselves in stock market wealth.
Men Are Too Easily Prone To Violence
Patriarchies’ history has been a very violent one. Men are responsible for war, slavery, genocide, atomic bombs, crime, prisons, money, private property and debt exploitation, poor education, income inequity, police brutality, pollution, environmental collapse, poison chemicals, mass extinction, climate change, over-population by disenfranchising women, and the control system. Men have created a horrible society and force women to follow along.
Many things we take for granted are actually violence on people and other species. For example, industrial farming is great violence on the prairie, herds, animals, forests, mycology that are destroyed to open the fields. It violence on the migrant workers that grow and process the food, work in the poison fields and who’s family’s have no chance for advancement. How difference at cow death camps than human death camps? Taking away women’s sovereignty of their livelihood, control of society and even their own bodies is violence. Creating religions that force or encourage women to have large families to create human destructive over-population is violence on all life.
Men’s Insecurity Is The Root Of His Inability Create A Just Society
The more insecure a man is, the harder he grasps on to control. The more inadequate he feels, the more likely he is to make narrow-minded decisions for his benefit. The greater the insecurity, the greater the control and the narrow his focus on the goal. Make insecurity makes men mad. Men will more easily turn a blind eye to harm to others or resort to overt violence. Men’s testosterone is his fatal flaw to not be able to have a regenerative, equitable society in harmony with all life on Earth. Women-led societies created the Garden of Eden in the America’s. Columbus came to destroy it.
Because of men’s greater need acceptance and adequacy, men are more easily taught to justify and perform violent acts.
Because women literally have to create and sustain life over a long-period, women make decisions with a broader lens and greater empathy. For example, “If this is harmful to my family, do I want to cause harm to other families or species?”
Repair The Damage Done By Men
What people need to understand is that we are now in an emergency situation where human population, human consumption and the male-egoic patriarchy are crashing the Earth and all that dwell on the planet. Humans have now literally become toxic with MERS, SARS and COVID-19. Since the advent of patriarchy and modern civilization, the human population has spread as fast as a virus. No amount of environmentalism or social justice movements will solve our near term problems. Civilization-patriarchy have created this emergency. Women are our only hope to repair society.
We are in the beginning days of triage for the repair of our society and our planet. It’s as if we are on the Titanic without any lifeboats and we have no idea we’ve hit an iceberg. If we are to survive, we must reduce the population by 100x. One-child families can do a 10x reduction in 100 years, but only women can create the society to do that.
Historically, Women Have Been In Charge
Iroquois Confederacy: Only Woman Can Choose Leaders
The Iroquois or Haudenosaunee were a historically powerful northeast Native American confederacy in North America. During the colonial years, they were known to the French as the Iroquois League, and later as the Iroquois Confederacy. To the English, they were known as the Five Nations, comprising the Mohawk, Onondaga, Oneida, Cayuga and Seneca. After 1722, they accepted the Tuscarora people from the Southeast into their confederacy, as they were also Iroquoian-speaking, and became known as the Six Nations. The Iroquois confederacy thrived and had no wars until the patriarchal Europeans pushed other tribes into them and poisoned them with smallpox.
In the great confederacy of the Iroquois, only women could choose the leaders. The women traditionally held real power, particularly the power to veto treaties or declarations of war. The members of the Grand Council of Sachems were chosen by the mothers of each clan. If any leader failed to comply with the wishes of the women of his tribe and the Great Law of Peace, the mother of his clan could demote him, a process called “knocking off the horns”. The deer antlers, an emblem of leadership, were removed from his headgear, thus returning him to private life.
Councils of the mothers of each tribe were held separately from the men’s councils. The women used men as runners to send word of their decisions to concerned parties, or a woman could appear at the men’s council as an orator, presenting the view of the women. Women often took the initiative in suggesting legislation.[!]
Old Europe: Goddess Culture
Archaeology shows that Old European Goddess cultures built villages and settlements in places because they were beautiful, not because they were defensible. There are no war or military artifacts found in Goddess culture archeology or art until the Kurgan men invaded from the East, 4000 to 1000 BC.[@][#][$]
If women were in charge, we would have peace, corporate reform, civility, equity, respect, environmental restoration, sustainable family sizes, honored religion and spirituality. His-story shows that women create and nurture life, while men exploit and destroy life.
Women Must Lead
Being that women have more patience, well-rounded vision to lead and repair society. A woman’s innate ability to nurture, protect, love and accept are characteristics of leadership that give rise to the empowerment of the people for whom she serves. Women rule from a balance of fierceness and compassion, rather than the controlling rule of the patriarchy. Women care and project. It’s time for women to take charge and for men to step aside.
“But Society Is Not Ready For Women To Be In Charge”
Having only women as leaders or at a minimum women selecting our leaders is the only hope we have. The only way forward is with one-child families. The only way to this is empowering women to take the lead and disenfranchising patriarchy. Until women are in charge, population will continue to explode and humanity will finish destroying most of the habitable the world. The next choice we have is a good old fashion plague but that won’t work because civilization will just rebuild the patriarchy. We have to end civilization with something better to survive. Society has been in balance with the feminine and Nature for hundreds of thousands or millions of years. If we can’t get back to balance, maybe humanity should just move on.
Men’s goal focus and insecurity make him more susceptible to programming than women. Men are also more easily programmed to commit direct and indirect violence. Men will justify their actions regardless of the consequences. Read more about We are programmable bio-robots.
