It is international Women’s Day. Revolutionary salute to all women!
Our basic problem in the world is patriarchy; that is, a world constructed around elite male power. This deeply entrenched system sidelines, denigrates, marginalizes and oppresses not just women; it does the same to the majority of men as well – with the chief outcomes being violence, mass poverty, dictatorship and ecological destruction. Our total liberation as human beings depends on slaying the dragon of patriarchy and creating an alternative world of new relations based on respect, justice and collaboration.
