Define what you mean by patriarchy? In most countries in the world, men are still much more powerful and advantaged in politics and society than women are. Easier to think of the exceptions: The Nordics, some European countries, New Zealand, and so on. (I'm not saying this is in all respects a good thing)

Here's the "Global Gender gap" ranking, using statistics on female represenation in legislatures, workforce participation, earnings, etc.

Patriarchy is the typical modus of Civilization from its inception until the late 1800īs.

After 1945 it finally started fully disappearing.

It does not mean 'men have more power in the work place'. Thatīs an extremely recent meaning from Feminism.

Itīs meaning is for 5.000+ years, until practically yesterday, in history, that the man is makes all the important decisions in his family.

Especially who his daughter gets to date.

Hutterites (German: Hutterer) are an ethno-religious group that is a communal branch of Anabaptists who, like the Amish and Mennonites, trace their roots to the Radical Reformation of the 16th century.- From Wiki

Here is their own link:

They seem a lot like Amish or Mennonites, but yet different many ways.

If you look at the societies that are not full of foreigners trying to take over from within, you'll find those are all patriarchies.

I wonder if our enemies were surprised at the fact that, of all the weaponized psychology they've used against us, feminism was by far the most effective...
