Rosemerry gets what I mean.
I mentioned that Amy Goodman had a debate between two women who both self-identified as Feminists and also as Socialists, yet one said she supports Clinton... which I, as a Feminist, find repugnant.
If the only color children ever see is blue, they will think the entire world is blue.
By analogy, the patriarchal capitalist paradigm paints power in ways that support typically male initiatives like the quest for power, domination, and who's got the biggest swinging dick.
Women who want power and behave like the males within the system in my view betray what Feminism is about.
I don't want a world where more women act like men who abuse those with less power or status.
I don't want a world where women are in positions within the existing hierarchy which itself not only does enormous harm, its entire modus operandi is HARM-based starting with war and ecocide.
I also don't think any Socialist could, in good conscience, support Wall Street's candidate and one who makes noise about NOT reinstating Glass Steagall... for starters.
So as George Benson once sang, "We tried to talk it over, but the WORDS got in the way..."
Today, words have been pushed far from their points of origin in the same way that food isn't food, money has become entirely decoupled from sound measures of worth, and candidates lie to obtain office and 100% betray their constituents.
It's a very ugly time... but out of the carcass of collapse, a Phoenix will rise and in such times of crisis, enormous, unprecedented change occurs. This time, much of it may point to a new Progressive Era.
One last thing: Katrina Vanden Heuval (from The Nation), Rose De Morro (United Nurses Union), me and other thinking women do not support Hillary just because she is a woman. I would support Jill Stein or Elizabeth Warren or Barbara Lee... but none of these individuals have a chance at this time.
