Famous Men Who Want Women To Rule Our World
"The World Would Be A Peaceful place if it were ruled by Women"
In the Daily Express, a national paper in Britain, a TV critic wrote. “You don’t need to be Germaine Greer to see that today’s world with its terror plots and its financial failures is in a mess largely as a result of the gung-ho, macho values in the boardroom and in the highest offices of state”
In recent years a number of people have come to realise that it would make a lot more sense for Women to rule the world again. Some are famous men like the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Billionaire Ted Turner, Author Martin Amis, and film director Michael Winner.
"Western women can come to the rescue of the world" said Dalai Lama “Some people may call me a feminist....But we need more effort to promote basic human values -- human compassion, human affection. And in that respect, females have more sensitivity for others' pain and suffering.” Dalia Lama center
“The world would be a peaceful place if it were ruled by women”.
“Women were by nature more inclined towards compassion, whereas men tend to feel they have to be “macho”
“You are basically life-giving, life-affirming. That is what you are naturally when you are unspoilt… Women can actually make society civil”.
“Actually it is very straightforward: let women take over.”
Archbishop Desmond Tutu.

More famous Men Who Say That Women Should Rule The World
Why men do a terrible job in ruling our world.
They have been running the world for the last thousands of years and they've mucked it up something awful.' I built my business surrounding myself with women. I find women more superior to men in business-"
"World ruled by women would be a better place," says author Martin Amis, "I have a dream. I see a day when politics is feminised, where female values move into the public sphere in a way they haven't quite done yet” Telegraph Newspaper
Film director Michael Winner, said in a newspaper article. "Men are ridiculous. Women are far better people. Much wiser (not difficult) and with a temperament to deal with life's complexities and men's abrasiveness... So I think it's about time women took over. What they have to put up with is beyond belief. Pathetic, bullying men who throw their weight about (and there's usually a lot of it) in a vain attempt to prove they're superior when, in truth, they know they're not." Daily Mail Newspaper.
To me all the above is blindingly obvious, men have ruled our world throughout recorded history and it has been a history of warfare, oppression, genocide and poverty, with a vast gap between rich and poor.
So if men are so bad at ruling our world why are we allowing clowns like this continue to rule our planet? The problem seems to be that if we look at the people who are advocating women should rule our world we find that it is always men who say this.
It is very hard to find women who will say the same thing. So perhaps this is why we are still living in a world ruled by men. Some women will talk about matriarchy but their version of matriarchy is generally about men and women being equal. So why aren't women coming forward as saying, “Men have messed up and do a terrible job in ruling our world, so it is about time we took over”?
Buckminster Fuller, Erich Fromm and Nikola Tesla
In the past other famous men have said similar things. Like Buckminster Fuller, (1895 - 1983), American engineer, architect, writer and inventor who was famous for developing the geodesic dome.
He was write in a 1968 McCall’s Magazine article, in an article entitled “Why Women Will Rule the World.”
“It’s not just about equality anymore; it’s about taking over a sinking ship!”
Again he believed that many of the problems of our world can be solved if we allow women to rule our world.
A famous psychoanalyst Erich Fromm, (1900 - 1980) was to say the same thing in his book, “Love, Sexuality, and Matriarchy: About Gender”. (Published after he had died).
In this book, he wrote about a six thousand years "guerrilla war" between men and women. This resulted in male domination as men turned women into the property of men, creating unloving societies. He believed we can only returns to a loving world if women were once again able rule our world.
Nikola Tesla, (1856 - 1943) a famous inventor who created the, alternating-current electrical system, which is the basis of nearly all electrical systems today.
In 1926, John B. Kennedy wrote down an interview he had with Tesla’s in an essay entitled “When Woman Is Boss” in Colliers magazine. In this article, Tesla was to say, “the human female toward sex equality will end in a new sex order, with the female as superior.” He then when on, to predict that there will be a new matriarchal world in the future, ruled by women.

The answers to some questions I have been asked about matriarchy
William Golding and Thomas Leary
Five thousand years of patriarchal rule does seem to have totally undermined women’s confidence in themselves. But what has been told to me by women is that they do fear men’s violence. After all, men are bigger, stronger, more aggressive and violent than women.
So they do genuinely fear that if they were to stand up and declare that they should be ruling our world, they think men will react by beating up and murdering and torturing women. Like they done in the witch hunts of the Middle ages or like what is still going on in Muslim countries today, with their ‘honor killings’ of women. Because of the fear of men’s violence, it is going to be difficult for women to organize a mass movement to demand that women should be ruling our world.
Fortunately the demand that women should be ruling our world also comes from men. This is because an increasingly number of men today are realising that male rulers are totally incapable of solving the problems of our world. Also, many men are getting fed up with having to play the macho role forced on them by patriarchal society.
So if we want to live in a world ruled by women, then perhaps it is up to men to lead the way in this. It enough men come out and publicly declare that women Should be ruling our world, then perhaps it might give women the confidence to organize themselves in a mass movement. With many men giving them help, support and protection
