I’ve read E. Jean Carroll’s book What do we need men for-A Modest Proposal. She describes two dozen sexual assaults she endured from the age of 8, including the one by Trump. Judith Krantz, in her autobiography, Sex and Shopping, describes Trump’s sexual assault when she refused to go with him to “see some rooms in my Tower”.
While we’re moaning about Bill Barr’s illegal acts, we’re overlooking the Beast in the room-serial sexual assaults committed by our elected President over the years, and probably continuing. It’s this cultural and religiously sanctioned acts of domination by men for centuries in the US that’s a direct link to our current governmental problems.
Trump, the GOP, and the Dems are acting as typical dominators, arm-in-arm with the global corporations. The system is rotten to the core, and women, people of color, and Gaia herself are the prey of the powerful. Until a man knows, in his gut, that, if he puts an unwanted hand on a woman and will pull back a stump, this will continue. Gaia, at least, is trying to regain balance. Fires, floods, extreme weather shifts…
My modest proposal…until women, Indigenous peoples, and peoples of color all hold seats at the table of our government on all levels in direct proportion to their population(meaning at least half of those seats will be held by women), this farce of a republic will continue its Kabuki play, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
