The current form of government is fed by the patriarchal system and to achieve its ends, it empowers men. At the same time, it habituates women into passivity. To avoid being designated troublemakers, they must be content to accept the scraps thrown from men’s tables.
The traditional culture of the analog world order engenders a fear. It’s the fear of failure: that of failing to satisfy the rising expectations of women. When men lose self confidence, when their constructed masculinity is perceived to be at risk, they stoop to violence and kill women and children.
