A Pyrrhic is no Victory at All

14 Nov

The course of conduct set down for humanity early in our history continues to this day leading to our ultimate failure and universal collapse. This is a guaranteed certainty as the remedy for the blight we suffer has lapsed into history.  A flaw found in human conduct has not been observed in any known species and it is doubtful any extinct group had been similarly afflicted since nature is not known to condone such behavior for long.

One could, in fact, define contemporary human existence as the manifestation of an endless, generational, Stockholm syndrome.  Certainly all the major ingredients of the syndrome including sympathy and positive feeling, including genuine love for the oppressor is observed among the aggrieved parties. More often than not the oppressors are defended and identified with and the oppressed persons in turn, barely recognize their diminished status. The capture-bonding endured melds so deftly into each soul the victim feels quite average and the loss suffered remains mostly unlamented.

The damage inflicted on an individual, however, is magnified, expanded and becomes grotesque when seen in worldview.  An entire planet has become victim to a lack of human gender partnership and reflects clearly the willful triumph of the offenders. How, then, is anything different to be expected when all decision making and implementation is assigned to one faction who have demonstrated willingness to risk the entire planet rather than relinquish sovereignty or offer equality?

A total and complete reversal of the cause of this distress cannot, unfortunately, prevent the inevitable result. The ingredients that would repair and insure humanities’ wellbeing cannot be superimposed on contemporary humans.  As much as we would likely benefit, the repairs are not possible as people cannot absorb the remedy. The eons of time required for assimilation are no longer available to us.  Nothing cosmetic or make-do would be efficacious but surely will be attempted if mankind becomes cognizant of any slim possibility for redress. Psychologist Carl Jung  after a lifetime of attempting to observe human instinct at work and in action had to conclude, roughly speaking; “the basic task of human instinct is to hide itself”. So, apparently, human introspection and fairness also hide when the subject is power sharing.

So then, our task here has a fatal onus in that the aggrieved parties cannot prosper from a behavior change even, in that highly unlikely event, the guilty faction attempts to redress the wrong. A wave of inevitability rushes us along a course chosen in default and only rarely glimpsed.  Almost no language exists to properly describe an alternate reality for us, save the passing of an occasional deep sigh reflecting the loss.

The contest was decided at the dawn of civilization and humankind has had to live with the result ever since. We were not to be a benign, compassionate and responsible species living harmoniously with nature and each other.  One half of our kind decided early on to dominate and ignore the council and equality of the other in perpetuity.  The descendants of those early conquerors possess a musculature advantage and are favored with more biological leisure and use these to subjugate their human partners. The importance of the female principal, one half of the human whole, is hereby forfeit, disenfranchised and ignored.

We can only cringe and lament the probable outcome of this Pyrrhic victory.
