Comments like yours pretend that there's an equality of input that has never existed since the onset of patriarchal societies. These are hierarchical by nature and grant more power and privilege to those with money, and always those that are white and male.
In order to maintain hierarchies which by definition challenge the type of egalitarian society that would better promote and reflect Democracy, major armies are required.
Those willing to use brute force along with all sorts of carrots and sticks (the luxuries that belong to those at the top of the hierarchy) control the masses.
I'm reminding you of this basic societal design because so many traffic in a WE-frame which itself is completely deceptive.
As Riane Eisler brilliantly documents in her book, "The Chalice and the Blade," there WERE societies that were not based on war, competition, or conquest. They were matriarchal and based on the lineage of the Mother. They worshiped the Mother Goddess and viewed all lives as HOLY.
When woman's body and birth are regarded as holy, it is impossible to turn people into slaves, chattel, or refuge.
There is a reason why vile pornography (of the sort that DEFILES the female body) is so popular in war-based societies. The greater the distance between the macho male and his weapon from the tenderness of woman, the possibility of LOVE, the more natural it becomes to kill and destroy.
Although 90% of women have been programmed by patriarchy in culture, religious houses of worship, academia, and lately, even those who gravitate to the military... it remains true that women, when expressing what is natural to the Feminine Essence would NOT base societies on war and destruction.
Those who argue that the FEW women who have risen to high office within the systems of patriarchal capitalism somehow represent all women, and argue from that scant pool of evidence that "therefore women would govern just like men" are using a faulty sample to argue for the same sexist, misogynistic, hierarchical culture that breeds contempt, warfare, resource desecration, and the ills that have torn this world asunder.
IF societies truly valued the female side of the Divine equation to the extent that male expressions are valued; and if men and women were free to express both of these natural drives in EQUAL measure... a very different world would result.
And that world cries out to be born... anew... out of the ashes of so much fire, brimstone, and MIC-led mass murder.
