Black Tie International:
How Women Will Change the World
By:  Andy McCabe


 “If there ever comes a time when the women of the world come together purely and simply for the benefit of mankind, it will be a force such as the world has never known.” —
Matthew Arnold Nineteenth-century poet and philosopher


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 reason.

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.

Regarding 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.".
See: western-women-can-come-rescue-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.
