Documenting the troubling manifestations of civilization's current crisis—violence, misogyny, racism, economic injustice, religious intolerance, and corporate greed—this breakthrough analysis posits the theory that the root cause can be found in patriarchy. Revealing the pervasiveness of the patriarchal mind over the centuries, examples are provided to illustrate how it touches every level of life, including construction of economies and reliance on the media and extending to the treatment of children and one’s own self. Describing the dangers of a society operating on dominator politics, this fascinating study explores the longterm damage done to the other aspects of inner being—mother and child. Brilliantly weaving together history, anthropology, religion, economics, education, psychological development, personal growth, and political oppression, the sobering global situation is illuminated. Offering a hopeful plan for change, this meaningful guide proposes an integrated balance between the three inner aspects and provides a transformative plan that begins with the re-education of the coming generation of children and strives to build a world that is meaningful and harmonious.
