It is difficult to say the least to come finally to the realization the flaw goes back so incredibly far. We have known for so long that it was at least an early symptom but we have now cone to formally state the prime error and to hypothesize how we can use that knowledge to fix the world without breaking it.
Sadly, I’m not hopeful. Usually we go back to the last bit of stability and the last three or four collapses they fell back into religious zealotry. Theocracy. It is the type of fascism most likely to arise in our country if we fuck this up.
And we think that really the thing to do is think of it as a fighter would, as a monk would, as a kayaker would.
The stream is too fast now to get out, now. Almost too late for advice.
Steer away from the rocks you see but realize most are under water. Hopefully you mapped the lower levels of this stream before it floods.
But if we can steer, let us use the energy of the collapse to go all the way back to the start of patriarchy and consent we did that part way wrong. And how do you unravel a thread from that far back when the generations last so long?
We’re not hopeful. But if it’s gonna break anyway let us break the fucker good and proper, yeah?
The world lacks balance, not more male energy. Men are out of balance in themselves women are out of balance so how to expect a balanced society?
We’re not hopeful. But it starts with one. One to remember that this was never the only way. And if that one becomes two? Well now it’s a party. Can we get a third?
