It just happened in the United Kingdom: Whoever is born first, male or female, becomes heir to the Throne. No more: Boys Only. The Brits are saying: Girls can lead us. Why not?
Maybe it has to do with the fact that major wars between leading super powers are no longer possible because all super powers have atomic bombs. Maybe it has to do with equal education for everybody and the world is seeing that girls learn more quickly than boys in all areas except math.
Whatever it is, women are taking over countries throughout the world. There are 20 women leaders of countries as of August of 2011. All over the world, from India to Argentina.
Daily, we are watching Madam Merkel of Germany pushing around the European male leaders as she seeks to stabilize the Euro and turn the EU into a new USA.
In South America, a traditionally male dominated area of the world, where Catholicism rules and where “Macho” is part of the culture, the two biggest dynasties, Argentina and Brazil now have female presidents.
In Argentina, President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has been there since 2007, and may be there her entire life, since she is beloved by the people.
In Asia, another traditional home of male dominance, Thailand’s Shinawatra took over, opening a new area for women to explore.
We have to wonder what is the meaning of this new adventure into the ruling class. Why are women now becoming leaders and will they ultimately take over the entire world?
WOMEN LIVE LONGER
It is well established across the world that women survive longer than men. By about seven years! That is ten percent of the human life span!
Women must have some hidden talents that permit them to survive, or men have some hidden flaws that knock them off the planet ten percent earlier than their wives and mothers. Or a combination of both.
Men have dramatic flaws. When they are young they think they are immortal and they run off to fight in any war that might be taking place anywhere on The Planet.
Fifteen hundred years ago, when there were practically no people in Europe, young men, both poor and rich, went off to fight Muslims in the Middle East in an act of insanity called The Crusades.
No sane animal would travel two thousand miles to get killed fighting unknown enemies who were defending their homes. But the men of the Middle Ages did just that! And, their women stayed at home and baked cookies which they ate as they looked around to see if any smart men stayed home too.
WOMEN ARE HOME BODIES
Females, whether human or otherwise, are nesting animals. Their role in nature is nurturing the young so that the species survives. They must take care of the nest and supply food and warmth to the infants so that those infants survive. The males will go out and fight predators and bring back food for the nest.
SOME FEMALE LEADERS (Obama…Goodbye!)
This is the way it is with birds and mammals. We are mammals and this is the way it is with us.
As a consequence of this nesting activity, females avoid fighting with others and make sure that their young are well fed and well protected from the environment. They too, because of their nesting activities, become better fed and are also protected from the environment.
This defensive behavior is genetic in its nature, but it may be considered a form of intelligence. Intelligence is a term we use to define activity that is beneficial to the individual. If one gets results that are self beneficial, such as wealth or power or fame, one is claimed to be intelligent.
If one survives longer than the norm of the species, both of the males and the females, one has a mental quality that we call Intelligence. The people of the world are beginning to recognize this form of intelligence and for that reason are choosing female leaders.
Part of the evolution of mankind has been the evolution of tools or technology.” Without tools mankind would still be living in caves and eating worms and other defenseless creatures.
Mankind shaped stones into spearheads, and knives which they used to capture animals and to build structures which would protect them from the inclement weather. From stone knives and spears they then went to bows and arrows and to chariots, the forerunners of vehicles.
This constant evolution of technology made brute power weaker and weaker. Male strength became less and less necessary for defense and the acquisition of food.
With the advent of the Atomic Bomb, suddenly millions of men were unnecessary for a war to be won. When the U.S. bombed Nagasaki and Hiroshima, suddenly the Japanese government realized that their army of brave men could not stop the U.S. invasion.
The technological destruction of an entire nation could be accomplished with a few men flying in a bomber. Today, it can be accomplished with a rocket, and anyone, male or female, pressing a button!
We see the total emasculation of the war time army. War is no longer a matter of armies against armies. It is a matter of technology against technology, where physical strength is totally irrelevant.
The decision by the Government of the United Kingdom to make the first born, whether male or female, become ruler of the Commonwealth, is emblematic of the recognition by a leading modern country of the role of women. Since the U.K. has tentacles across the planet, it is interesting to note that all members of the Commonwealth are following the lead of the U.K.
In other modern countries the same governmental evolution will follow rapidly. It is becoming apparent that males are no longer necessary, and, perhaps, no longer advisable, as leaders.
Warfare is a thing of the past. Nations are looking for material well being. People want a nice nest. They want food and shelter and the time to enjoy their stay on Mother Earth.
Why not then, let Mother President lead us?
