Peaceful Societies

You can call them "Segmentary Societies" like Emile Durkheim, "Regulated Anarchies" like Max Weber, "Peaceful Societies" like on the Website mentioned below or "Matriarchy", like German Scholars define it (not to confuse with Bachofen, goddess movement or FemDom).

Can patriarchy be nonviolent?
No. patriarchy is a violent "state of being" by definition. Patriarchy includes duress and force. You are forced to pay taxes, even, if you don't care of getting something back from the state or government. You are forced to send your children to school. Your children are forced to go to school. You are forced to pay for a health insurance, that you maybe do not want. And so on. Just look to your life and check out, what you do not want to do though it would cause no harm.

The prophecy predicts that The Grandmothers of all the worlds tribes would unite, and light the way for us.

No More Ms Nice Person

Too often I hear experienced businesswomen putting forward the idea that the best quality women bring to business is our nurturing ability, and it makes my blood boil. Worse still is when this 'pearl' has the usual 'be assertive not aggressive' rule tagged onto it. Does anyone really believe that the individuals advocating this blah got to the top by cuddling competitors, playing coochie-coo with a disgruntled colleague or by soothing a grazed ego with an Elastoplast and a kiss?

Are there communities based on matriarchal structure?

I have dreamed of a community that is based on a matriarchal structure, and I know others who have expressed the desire to live in such a community. Does such a place exist, or is one currently being planned?

Making Our Circle

It all started when a Soviet engineer decided to straighten out the road. The old road curved in this one spot just outside the village. So he brought in a lot of people and tractors and started ripping right through the hill where in the old times we held round dances.
