I had the privilege of meeting and talking with Emmanuel Itier recently. He is a man who loves women, in the best sense of that word. He trusts, admires and believes in women. He celebrates the natural collaborative, communicative, and peace-oriented nature of women, and recognizes that the patriarchal system, run by the two drives of fear and conquest needs to be deeply re-evaluated.
"The root of the problem," he told me, "is the imbalance between the feminine and the masculine. Men have been conquerors, takers, killers. You push women out of politics, education, and religion, and you end up with a totally unstable world. If you look at who is currently managing the planet, it's just a few hundred thousand men. I now feel a compassion for them. They are little boys who were given a gun, either a mental one or a physical one, at age four and told to go and shoot. They think they are meant to kill. It can be a physical killing, an emotional one, or sometimes it's both. It's a real problem. Until we have a rebalance between the yin and yang, between the feminine and masculine, until men are reconciled with themselves, we will go nowhere."
