"Free and critical minds can emerge only by a return to the source-the primary sources. A free and critical mind takes nothing for granted and is not intimidated by "authorities" who frequently may be more confused than the general public. Free and critical minds seek truth without chauvinism or shame." - Dr. Asa G. Hilliard III (1)

African Communal Education: Patriarchy Vulnerability
Unity Consciousness #804


(Part 8 of 9)

Main Reference: “The Virtues and Challenges in Traditional African Education” by John K. Marah, Ed.D.

Patriarchy At Least 13,000 Years Ago

Clearly the Age of Pisces is an Age of Patriarchy (males in crazed control, not just simply “males in charge”). Thus we have genderism as a necessary evil discrimination in order for patriarchy to exist. The Age of Pisces was a continuation of rising imbalance and distortions in female/male relationships.
Remove the window dressings of right to vote and wage and position improvements for relatively few females, and remove all the shape-shifting to give the appearance of female progress, and then you'll recognize the same truth that also applies to racism. At best, progress has been negligible and has not come as a result of the willingness of the society. The fundamental spirit of societies has not changed regarding genderism or racism. In other words, by itself, position improvement is not confirmation of position improvement.
Looking further back in history in Kemet and elsewhere, we see patriarchy in existence during the Ages of Aries, Taurus, Gemni, Cancer, Leo, Virgo, Libra and Scorpio. In Kemet, the uniting of the Two Lands is often spoken of favorably; however, under male leadership, two groups of Kushite Nubians went to war and one group lost. This is how Kemet was formed. This is the same as America being formed when two groups of Europeans went to war.
For people outside Africa, evidence of longstanding patriarchy can be found by looking at their moral compasses - patriarchal religions that rose such as Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and others.

Thus we, the world, have been under a patriarchal period for at least 13,000 years, or half a Great Year. The past 13,000 years have been marked by ever narrowing, more restrictive, more vicious forms of patriarchy such as rule-the-world mad scientist empire building and new mutated strains of logic to push human-beingness out of the picture in our list of things to consider when thinking.

The Pervasive Problem of Patriarchy

Patriarchy is a limiting ideology because it is not in harmonic balance with the female principle. Instead of representing Maat (balance), patriarchy represents isfet (imbalance).

“As patriarchy emerged in the civilization of Kemet, the principal God of Kemet, Goddess Nu also known as Nut and Het-Heru was demoted from the primary essence of the Creator to being the mother of Heru and the wife of Amen-Ra. Even though there were several temples dedicated to Het-Heru, the female principle became third to the masculine nature of the Creator as emphasized in Father and Son, Amen, Ra, Atum and Heru. (Encyclopedia of African Religion, p. 307, quoted and paraphrased with additions)

“In Africa, women live in some societies that have been reluctant to value the role of women equally alongside that of men. The overwhelming majority of African societies are patriarchal. As in all patriarchal societies, women are generally viewed as being second to men. Although women are portrayed as partners with God in terms of being the portal through which comes human life, they are also considered the cause of the disconnection between humanity and God (the cause of sin and weakness). Also, women are considered helpmates (servant-spouse) and as possible wreckers of men’s lives. (temptresses, bringers of bad luck, reasons males mess up, etc.)” (Encyclopedia of African Religion, p. 724-5, quoted and paraphrased with additions)

Gender influences in communal groups are upside down, which is in keeping with the rise of the lower-spiritual nature Destroyer principle within the Universe and within self. Africa must restore default settings of communal groups to the last known good configuration before Kemet. This will repair the broken dehumanizing logic of patriarchy by making the male role subject to the stronger civilizing force of matriarchy. Patriarchy is mind-centered and closed-minded, thus stagnant in terms of healthy motion while moving at full speed in terms of unhealthy motion. This period of time under the rule of patriarchy is essentially one form of challenge that must be and can be overcome through the renewal of maturing in understandings, once again, of self in relation to all else.
Africans in Africa need to Sankofa and “know yourself” just as much as Africans anywhere else. This can happen much quicker than it is happening elsewhere because the root, the soil and seed of spirit-soul is right there in Africa. Your conception, birth and upbringing has taken place in the Holy Land. The core language is still intact along with many other connecting cultural practices. These advantages, once adjusted and reoriented, can propel, Africans in Africa, rapidly forward. This will not happen however, under the auspices of white or black Gods encapsulated in disfigured forms of traditional spirituality called spirituality or religion. (p. 21/pdf 7)

There must be a restoration of what works and a jettisoning of what does not. Males must move over and back and women must rise up and take more of an active and lead role in the administration of the communal group.

Cohesive Communal Context From The Mouth Of A Monarch Patriarch

“Serious consideration should be given to the establishment of an African University, sponsored by all African States, where future leaders of Africa will be trained in an atmosphere of continental brotherhood. In this African institution, the supra-national aspects of African life would be emphasized and study would be directed toward the ultimate goal of complete African unity” (p. 22/pdf 10)
Even though patriarchy existed in Kemet from at least the onset of the Dynastic Period, it was the uniting of two communal groups in Kemet (the Two Lands that became Upper and Lower Kemet) that brought forth economies of scale which contributed to what Kemet was able to accomplish, even while under increasing patriarchy imbalance.
In other words, communal living and communal group cooperation, to any extent, enhances the use of our creative genetic potential genius. This is true whether we are guided by the higher-self values or lower-self values. The Devil achieved a global system of racism due to communal group cooperation in every major institution of societies, even though those communal groups and their institutions are as dysfunctional as they come.* How much more so can Africans use the power of communal cooperation and their divine natural advantages to take the Devil down and take his crown?

*In fact, all of their institutions are evil down to the core of their construction. If you think you've found one of their institutions that is not, please explain. If you think you've somehow found an institution where there is a sweet spot that somehow overrides the rot and that somehow instead of getting rid of the contents and the pot, and revolutionize the entire lot, beginning with Maat, and instead what needs to happen is just make reforms in certain spots, please explain. I'm certain you cannot, without understandings cropped due to knowledge, as it relates to all else and self, forgot. Logic satisfied with what the Destroyer provides, without increasing comprehensiveness of thought, is the enemy in you in me I'm trying to stop.
