Men do a terrible job in ruling our world. So it is about time we allow women to rule instead and see if they can do a better job.
Thanks for this debate. I was looking forward to something like this. 1. "The pen is mightier than the sword" 2. It is not only men who partake in competition but also women. It is is in our bloods to be greedy and selfish, and so having a women leader would not necessarily make things better. Why do women do up their hair, face and body? To stand out from the other women? Is this not competition? And who said that competition isn't healthy. To quote the great Adam Smith, "In competition, individual ambition serves the common good". Look at the technology sector. Due to the vast amount of competition, companies such as Apple and Samsung have to keep on innovating in order to stay alive. This provides us with goods which we would never have seen if it were not for competition. 3. When you say a "matriarchal government" who will care and nurture do you basically mean more government? “One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results” (Milton Friedman). It will be difficult to look after all the citizens. By helping some people, other will be at a loss (a bit like a zero sum game). Why not just have fewer rules and regulations allowing people to live their lives without having the government breathing down their neck?

Jill Sobule: Global warming's theme song, "Manhattan in January"
Maria: "America isn't smart" - it has the 3rd largest number of patents in the world. You also say that "they believed everything that came out of G.Bush's mouth" - It's easy to make a comment like that in hindsight. Was he responsible for the Financial crisis? Fine, he didn't help stop it, but you cannot place full responsibility on him. The citizens should take some responsibility for the mess as well. Let's say that Al Gore was elected instead of Bush. You would say the exact same thing - "imagine how different America might be if [Gore] had been elected". To me it seems that you are looking at half of the story. You've basically followed the crowd. ps. im not a fan of BUSH!
