Author Riane Eisler speaks to a partnership society. Indeed, she did a talk at James Madison University titled "Re-Examining Human Nature and Re-Creating Society." Her passion, mission and purpose is to do nothing less than creating a Partnership Society or what Rob Kall calls Bottom-Up. (The URL for Riane's presentation at James Madison is presented below. If you watch, give yourself a couple of hours in time).
While Riane may speak more to the injustice between the sexes, Rob speaks more to a cultural evolution from top-down to bottom-up. Eisler's focus is a holographic manifestation of Rob's bottom-up campaign. Indeed, the laboring classes composed of men and women have all been treated as women by the ruling classes. Labor IS a feminine function.
Labor is also a movement from the inside out, not the outside in. In watching a fetus grow en utero, she develops via an interaction of the cells. Thus, a liver cell becomes a liver cell based on the interactions to the whole.
In Lovelock's Gaia Hypothesis, this is exactly how all the life of this planet and on it has evolved.
It is time we make a change and spark an evolution. Let us look at our individual movements in relationship to planetary consequences. What we do matters. We can talk about liberal and conservative politics all we want. We can also begin a revolution. Yet, how many times have revolutions led to a "meet the new boss, same as the old boss."
Thus, the United States Revolutionary War was exactly that, a revolving back into a feudal and kingly government structure. "We the People" has turned out to be a joke as evidenced by the lack of participation of women, people not of the Caucasian race (e.g., Blacks and Hispanics), and even people of the "lower" classes.
Yes, during the industrial revolution the peasants or lower classes became labor classes, which associated them with women. After all, isn't the production of you and me by our mothers considered labor? And how are the labor classes treated? Like women! We are subservient play toys toiling for the sake of our Masters.
Women's liberation is thus more than just about women. It's about all of us. Men and women.
