Men suppressed women for centuries with the patriarchal ideology, and its customs.
That long period of suppression forged the illusion of men inherent superiority over women, and sadly convinced a big portion of women to believe the same.
Women started to fight back in organized way only during the last few decades, and men are already feeling ball-less, weaker, and suddenly discovered that at school they are intellectually inferior to women.
Like, Simone de Beauvoir put it “no one is born woman, one becomes a woman”
What is still helping men to keep the upper hand is the legacy of patriarchy, which once scrapped would unleash women’s full genius, and put most men at their due place.
At another significant scale, it took western Europe five centuries to reach its current stage of development, helped on the way by resources from slavery, colonialism and genocides.
China in the other hand, had reached the same stage of development in just half a century, which means ten times faster, demonstrating their superiority in organization, in discipline, in science and math, without colonizing any foreign country, without slavery of other nations or committing rampant genocide.
This shows that once people are freed from suppression (patriarchy, colonialism, etc.) they often prove to be superior to their masters.
Reason why one should always seek freedom first, and then economical and social progress come as the fruit of that freedom.
Trying to grow without freedom is an illusion (of the house negroes).
There is no inherent superiority of a race or a gender. There are only systems suppressing the right of others to develop their potential.
The last 5 centuries development in the world was mainly based on the brain power of a thiny and young population, representing less than 15℅ of humanity, the Europeans.
The slow and irreversible liberation of the suppressed 85% of world population, during the last half century, would add during the next decades a more diverse and probably higher level of brain power to the development of humanity.
Some decades ago, you won’t be able to read my unique point of view about world affairs, but only a transcript of my idea by a white European anthropologist telling the world what I think.
In conclusion, seeing the western model of organization as the ultimate stage of humanity development is an insult to the 85% of the world population which are only waking up from centuries of suppression, and have yet to discover how far their brain power would carry humanity forward.
The West should not worry about the emergence of the 85%, we will share a far better model of humanity back with them.
(Patriarchy, Racism, Imperialism and Colonialism are the same disease variants, stemming from the scarcity mentality).
