The concepts of matriarchy and patriarchy belong to the field of scholarship, of people working hardly popular concepts, so complex and, why not say, because of the poor relationship with the practical issues of everyday.
It is reasonable to say that scholarship, (deep and extensive knowledge of science, arts and other subjects), it is useless. What does happen is yielding results in the medium and long term. In fact, we are governed by scholars, although these everyday people concerned seem superfluous matters.
What I say in the video, and I extend in this article, is that all our Western culture seems ruled by men, although in reality it is women who do most of the one mission that humans have: to conserve the species.
As mentioned in many articles, it is they who, stimulated ovulation, in the interest of being fertilized, you choose a father to his children seduce and intercourse with, you need to extract semen.
This whole process may or may not be accompanied by the expected social rituals for the case: dating, civil marriage, religious marriage, starting a family. When insemination does not include rituals, they manage to be fertilized in a chance meeting, without establishing any lasting bond with the father of her children.
For how pregnancies do occur, (female decision and action), I say that we live in a matriarchy.
We would be in a patriarchy if we were really men who were to take the initiative and we became fully responsible to provide for the sustenance of our wife and children.
Behind these considerations, the conclusion is this: While the women are doing the most important task of conserving the species (matriarchy), we will have large numbers of poor, because pregnancy and childcare consume so much time and energy they can also not win easy money.
For poverty is not as wide and deep as now, need to be men who were passionate about preserving the species, for which only have to spend energy to fertilize. In this scenario they could spend the rest of his time and energy to generate wealth for the family and for the nation.
