Someone else here touched on this topic briefly in another thread and what they said resonates with me. If all of humanity, and most all biological life, comes through into this world through women - then to control women is to control the world. A child as an innocent, pure mirror, reflecting what appears before them, the mother instilling survival, the father to protect. What if this (and I believe so) is manipulated? If Auset is the base of the Tree, then defining the parameters of motherhood and childhood constitutes control of the worlds ability to concieve. Conception of ideas, conception of culture, humanity. If one can make woman, the base of the Tree, submit their power, so follows all of humanity. Your thoughts?
