Patriarchal Societies Are An Archaic Form Of Insanity That Terrorizes Over Half The Population Into Lower Class Status

Western civilization has had a long history of patriarchal constructs. Even today our social structure still contains echoes of our patriarchal past, in the same way we still hold echoes of racial supremacy structures. The control asserted by patriarchy consists on a spectrum ranging from economic disenfranchisement to exploitation for profit, to being perceived as property and dehumanization and enslavement. Rape is a prime example as one of the most antithetical experience to inflict upon a person, especially a woman. Rape has always been a tool employed to psychologically and physically control; to the extent of subverting more than half of the species.

It is interesting to note that when the human species was younger, dating back further than 12,000 years; women were worshiped as goddesses. However, during the Younger Dryas mass extinction the human population was reduced to roughly 2000 at one point; with only about 50 fertile females remaining of the species. Disproportionately altering structures of social coagulation and organization rapidly. It is the following millennia that we see the transformation of women being worshiped as goddesses into women being perceived as dehumanized property. The perception of divinity altered during this period from a pantheistic and paganistic perspective as feminine to one of masculinity such as the Abrahamic monotheistic religions. It is arguable that the extensive catastrophes that occurred during the mass extinction delusioned the male half of the species into a form of psychosis out of desperation for survival.

What originally started as guardianship and mutual respect, descended into a form of madness as the egotistical primeval brute within the male population's psyche had an unchecked majority in the species. If we extrapolate the perception of that ancient perspective of women being goddesses, then one of the most antithetical thing imaginable would be desecrating the temple of life (metaphorically speaking), which is precisely what rape does. Furthermore from a philosophical perspective, the repercussions of such horrifying treatment on a large scale installs the same mental destruction suffered by any terrorized population. Women are raised to think sexual assault and abuse is normal in the same way populations in the Middle East are taught that drone bombardments are normal.

Additionally the inherent respect of treating women with the recognition they deserve for preserving the species becomes completely lost and forgotten by those apathetic to the systematic atrocities like rape. The dehumanization via asinine anti-feminists, men's rights activists, and meninists movements and groups utilize wit, sarcasm, and cleverness in place of intelligence, wisdom, and understanding to harass women in concerted efforts. However, other portions of society absorb these ideas and exasperate the dehumanization as well; largely as a result of apathy.

The problem of rape is the responsibility of those taking such hostile actions. The person raped is not the one to blame, no matter the circumstances. A woman could walk down the street naked and that would still not be an excuse for someone to force themselves upon her. The archaic continuation of rape as an acceptable event has reached a maxim; the behavior has never been excused, merely ignored. That ignore-ance that has perpetuated this historic atrocity does not stand to last longer into the 21st century. New generations are documenting its occurrence and are making an effort to eliminated it as a tool of oppression. Patriarchy is a shell of what it once was, but it's subtle repercussions still cast an influential shadow of our society. Even with counterrevolutionary forces preventing patriarchy from falling into history, the light of the reality of these atrocities will still shine through and the terrorizing of over half the species will finally end.

10 Things You Need To Know If You Are Going To The March For Life For The First Time

How to prepare, everything you should bring, and what you can expect

I went to the March for Life for the first time last year, and I have been excited about this year's march basically since I left last year's march. The March for Life is a pro-life march in Washington, DC. Along with the march, there is also a series of speakers in the morning. It changed my life and was hands down one of the best events I have ever attended and been a part of. If you are going this year for the first time, I would love to share some tips and information with you, so that you can make the most of the day and know some of what to expect! I understand that everyone's experience may not be the same of mine, but this is what I experienced, and some things I would have appreciated knowing before I went.

You need to dress warm.

When I say warm, I mean warm. You are going to be outside all day. Bundle up until you think you are dressed warm enough, then add a few more layers. I was not dressed warm enough on my first trip to any degree. The last thing you want is to be more focused on how cold you are than on what you are there for. I recommend a few pairs of socks, gloves, a hat, and hand and foot warmers. Thankfully, the weather is looking pretty decent for this year!

You will be walking A LOT.

You will definitely walk a few miles that day. Wear clothes and shoes that are comfortable. Eat a big, nutritious breakfast and get a good night's sleep the night before. You will need it!

There will be a ton of people there.

Last year there were 800,000 people in attendance. It is incredible to spend a day with so many people with the same beliefs and desires as you. Everyone there is beyond friendly and kind.

There may be some people there that are against you, but they are few and far between.

During my experience at the march last year, we encountered a few people who were against us. But those few people take no stance to our 800,000 and Jesus. Don't be worried.

There are a few things you don't want to forget to take with you.

I would recommend bringing:

A bottle of water



Chap stick

You are going to learn a lot.

I learned a lot, especially from the speakers, about the abortion industry, about choosing life, and about what I could do to help. There were so many important, difficult, and inspiring things said that I actually went home and re-watched all of the speeches online so that I could better comprehend things, and so that I could write down what stood out to me the most.

God is there.

The speakers fearlessly talk about Jesus and share the good news. The Holy Spirit is so present. Complete strangers show you God's love.

This will be one of the most peaceful things you will ever be a part of.

I still can't comprehend the peace that I experienced at the march. It is hard to believe that a crowd of 800,000 people in the heart of Washington, DC can be even remotely peaceful, but let me be the first to tell you that the peace that only the Lord can give is so ever present.

It will change your life.

The March for Life changed my life. I have so much more drive and desire to do my part in ending the abortion industry, inspiring others to choose life, and praying for all of the babies whose innocent lives have been taken. I am much more confident in sharing my beliefs and standing for life.

I am so glad that you are going to the march, because I just know it is going to be an amazing experience for you. See you there!

A New Day Is On The Horizon

Time really is up.

If you missed the Golden Globes, then you missed one of the most epic thank you speeches ever given by none other than Oprah.

I think she said it best when she states, "A new day is on the horizon." This is a powerful speech to me because it doesn't attack men like so many do. She instead is talking about how the time is up on looking past all of the corruption in the world today and uniting and overcoming as a whole.

If this issue is ever going to truly be gone, men and women have to work together to end it. Oprah's speech hopefully lit a fire in many women and men all over the country to begin a new day and work to end the pain holding in secrets of hurt and struggle many have had to deal with all these years. Hopefully, our country can be new and work together.
