Sure. Power corrupts & absolute power ... etc. No doubt. I agree that patriarchy exists, too. Recently a Medium reader insisted that present circumstances compelled her to hate men. I replied stating that hating men, or anyone, is a choice, not a compulsion.

But as far as her hating men in general. I have no problem with that. And I realize it is patriarchy that permits me to feel that way.

I just have my doubts that matriarchy, or any 'archy, is the solution to our problems. Perhaps the pendulum will swing in that direction, but I'm skeptical of absolutes in that regard.

LA born & raised, now I live upstate. I hate snow. I write on healthcare, politics & history. Hobbies are woodworking & singing Xmas carols with nonsense lyrics
