Matriarch

Matriarch


As in most primate kinship circles, such as baboons, mothers are at the center of the circle. Sisters, daughters, brothers, and sons are further removed from mothers at the kinship core. Sons and brothers are in the next circle outside the mother's female kin. Fathers and adult males reside in the outer-most circle removed from mothers and their retinue. The peripheral males provide support and protection in return for mating privileges. This family geometry persists into the 21st Century. The central family core remains a matriarchy. The male patriarch, providing support and protection in exchange for mating rights, is usually separated from the core family. Over the last 2,500 years, patriarchs treated families as commodities. Families are consumers, houseworkers, wageworkers, people-producers, nurturers, and sex-workers. Economic need forces people to choose life as a commodity, to be bought and sold like sacks of potatoes. It amounts to coerced servitude in an increasingly sociopath global profit-economy. Radical contradictions in society are a prelude to upheaval. Consider the vast global imbalance of wealth. Super-wealthy Haves are 0.2% of all families; yet take possession of the world. Have-nots comprise 99.8% of all families. Have-nots, by their work, shopping, and consumption, create the wealth of the Haves. The super-wealthy are Takers, taking what they want. Takers devour and trash the Earth as they control it. Takers possess 99.8% of global wealth. Leavers are Have-nots who are left with the remains. How to boil a FROG (Inspired by the Story of B, by Daniel Quinn)Put a frog in a cauldron of warm water. As the water slowly heats, the frog remains still. The frog goes into a stupor, as we might in a warm bath. The frog will boil to death, while remaining in a stupor. This is a metaphor of the human condition. For 3-million years our ancestors were hunter-gatherers. Modern humans were around for 200,000 years. For 190,000 years we were hunter-gatherers, Leavers.L.
