In presenting a story, which, although seemingly improbable,
could very well be true, it is my hope that it will remind
women of their power. Why women and why now? Most folks, who
are paying even the slightest attention, would agree that
the world is in a mess and most of the chaos and pending
calamity has been caused by men. Men control the world and,
mostly, always have.
Tony Montana summed it up in the 1983 movie, Scarface, which
I have watched more times than I care to admit, when he
said, “In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then
when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get
the power, then you get the women.” But there’s more! The
aggression hormone: testosterone. Going back beyond recorded
history, you can always bet that the guy who controlled
things was as aggressive as hell. He didn’t take a vote. He
beat someone in a fight or killed them and that’s it. He
called the shots! Sound familiar? Consider, for example,
Julius Caesar, Attila the Hun, Vikings, Hitler, and on and
on. However, now men don’t have to beat someone in a fight,
they only need to have unlimited money and then they can buy
power and, if needed, someone to do their fighting for them.
But it’s still about women! All the “power” boys want to
impress the ladies, and it usually works.
Many women will agree that the more powerful and wealthy a
man is, the more attractive he seems to get!
For women, on the other hand, beauty has always been the
characteristic that has attracted men. It still is. However,
most women don’t seek power for the
same reasons as men. They generally don’t do it to get the
best looking guy.
Women are overwhelmingly more interested in family, social
issues, correcting wrongs, making a difference, taking care
of others and taking care of their loved ones, as well our
planet. Sure, there are women who don’t fit this template,
but most, in the opinion of this humble writer, do! Women
don’t want to send their young men to war, regardless of the
If women were in charge, I believe we wouldn’t have wars.
So, we live in a world controlled by wealthy men who pull
the strings on everything: media, politics, war, money,
education, food, medicine, wages, jail, and now, your mind.
They’ve been at it for a long time. Now, they control your
mind by making you afraid. Afraid? Think about it: the Ebola
epidemic, swine influenza, nuclear annihilation,
uncontrolled spending, a faltering economy, downsizing,
mandated vaccinations, a government out of control, possible
food and water shortages, climate change, terrorism, and
scariest of all, WW III.
What is insulting is that, even when the medical profession
knows the flu vaccine often doesn’t work, the signs are
still out at most pharmacies reminding us to get our flu
shots now. No appointment needed! In 2009, the Dalai Lama
stated, “Western women will save the world!” and I believe him.
He obviously doesn’t fit the money, power, women mold, and
his life has been spent in service to others. He has also
never capitulated to his enemies, but instead, serves as a
beacon for perseverance, strength, and enlightenment.
politics, which affects us all, when electing our leaders, I
suggest that we carefully review their track record before
electing someone. That’s what most of us do before we place
our bet on a horse race. In making decisions about leaders
and whether they should be men or women, asking the
following questions will help clarify the process: Do they
have a record of sincerity? Do they have a record of being
successful at what they do? Are they compassionate and kind?
Do they know how to get things done? Do they really care
about people? Do you believe they would use their power with
restraint but, when necessary, for the good of our country
and the world? Most importantly, do they have a record of
being truthful and honest?
It is my wish and prayer that this book will make a difference by
reminding women of their power and challenging them to do
what needs to be done to ensure the well-being of future
generations. This is not a book that tries, in any way, to
portray women as saints and men as sinners. Each camp has
its share. There are, obviously, many great men and women
and lots of folks in between. This is also not a book that
purports women should rule the world.
This is a book about balance: the yin and yang, the up and
down, night and day. The Dalai Lama at the Vancouver Peace Summit, October
2009 stated, "Western women can rescue the world.".
Currently, there is no balance, and therein rests much of
the problem. When women fully appreciate their power, they
will make needed changes in themselves, their family,
community, workplace, politics,
and the world.
