We have had an infernal summer. The entire country seemed to swelter. The only break was rain. But after the rain, then the humidity and it was as if it were hotter than ever.
When it is hot, it impossible to think. I feel slack, and like not going out at all. I feel like I should have been a porpoise rolling around in the sea….except it is too hot to go there.
And, despite my whale-like pose, I am not a porpoise….not even close.
In the modern world, women really could be in control. Men are guided by infantile sexuality and fantasies of youth. They are held up by women’s romantic beliefs in their suits and ties, for better or worse. And while there are exceptions, most men are disappointing, and even if they do not think so, or do not see it, they are living the long slow end of their dominance.
Women are more reasonable, more able to make sensible decisions about things. Because they have an eye on their children, they are more likely also to pay attention to the needs of the world rather than getting into ego driven wars or destructive battles for power. Again, there are exceptions. But the trend is pretty obvious. Men are at risk of being accused of stupidity, of sexual predation, of vanity, of just being immature….the worst thing leveled at women is that they fell for a romantic love story. That is, they fell for their feelings…
If women do not soon take control, our world is in serious trouble. I know there have been harsh and brutal women leaders. But if some kind of matriarchal order does not assert itself soon, in the next century or so in other words, we are finished as a species. The change is on, but will it happen quickly enough? I am not sure. I sure hope so.
