Humankind: The Post- bellum Species

3 Sep

Several thousand years of manufactured consent combined with near continual social and religious reinforcement have almost removed all memory of our ante-bellum existence. The gender war was insidious and victory was swift and decisive but in the context of the times, not unusual.  Conquest and usurpation was considered the norm by the victors who ravaged and pillaged at will. The resultant disenfranchisement of an entire gender continues intact but is not recognized now as a legacy of theft.  It is universally regarded as simply the way things are.

A form of collective amnesia prevents any alternate reality from appearing at the horizon. Humankind is seemingly untroubled by the criminal takings that occurred in the past but is troubled by the impossibility of finding harmony in human existence today.  The brightest and most favored have no greater insight into the perils of this ongoing gender inequity than the dullest.

Alas, a gender conflict of such shattering aspect has promoted the weaker human partner into near total prominence and relegated the stronger to a lesser position. (Note: no examples appear here of weaknesses and excesses of the now dominant, but weaker gender, as the writer is of that persuasion, so he will defer to the stronger gender who, hopefully, is willing to exemplify… and show mercy)

One example (couldn’t resist):

“Men aren’t really very strong at all…At the first sign of trouble a man falls apart. That’s why women have to work so hard to stay optimistic and upbeat, to be frugal and understanding. To not question everything”  Ann Hood …’The Obituary Writer’

 

No species can exist for long when guilty of manipulation of gender equality solely to maintain dominance and disguise weakness.  It seems miraculous that humankind has managed to avoid extinction thus far but I’m doubtful we can avoid the inevitable much longer. Things are coming undone and since the stronger are everywhere still beholden to the weaker, the entire planet suffers from the flawed results

Futurists and doomsayers alike strive to pierce the void and offer their special vision.  Most don’t   come close to being accurate because they assume what dooms us now will save us in the future! That the status quo causing the problems will not taint future prospects as well.  That the antidote for societal poisoning is reckoned to be continued dosing.

If it eludes the brightest despite all effort of understanding, then surely I must be mistaken in my conclusions. That my notion, surely it’s merely a notion, that the disenfranchisement of an entire gender is not the reason it’s all gone to pieces. Surely, I’m daft. No harm is said to be found in one gender ruling an entire planet and that perhaps that is not a primal error, is not a travesty of cosmic import, nor is it an unsupportable future aspect, etc etc…….to infinity. Perhaps.

This notion does not even rate inclusion in the human equation beyond, “well, that’s all true, but…” or “There you have it…but”  or “ Life on Earth could be brought to an end, but…”or  “Things could be different, but…or ”Perhaps we have neglected to include them, but…”

Go ahead, add to list. Then ignore it. Thank you, merely my silly notion, ain’t it now
