Despite the ages that have passed since homo sapiens developed the ability to think and behave in ways that transcended our animal origins—and in remarkable ways distinguished us from other primates—male humans in particular have continued to exhibit animalistic behavior, and today remain fixated on violence—not only toward other humans but also toward animals, other species of life, and the Earth itself.
There is more to the story of why so many human males are prone to engage in violence—and remarkably, most of this story has to do with attempts by men to establish controls and high standards for human behavior that to an astonishing degree had the opposite effect.
The author says the reason for this dichotomy is that these religious-inspired attempts were based on the misunderstanding, misuse and abuse of human sexuality combined with the fundamental ignorance and willful stupidity of human males.
He explains why and how this incredible situation developed and continues today, and includes some extraordinary recommendations.
Until recent times virtually all societies ignored the fact that women also have powerful sexual urges and needs--an incredible arrogance perpetrated by males. The emotional and physical suffering this has caused and continues to cause females is incalcuable.
