Patriarchy: the prevailing religion of the entire planet

“Patriarchy is itself the prevailing religion of the entire planet, and its essential message is necrophilia. All of the so-called religions legitimating patriarchy are mere sects subsumed under its vast umbrella/canopy. They are essentially similar, despite the variations. All--from buddhism and hinduism to islam, judaism, christianity, to secular derivatives such as freudianism, jungianism, Marxism, and Maoism--are infrastructures of the edifice of patriarchy. All are erected as parts of the male’s shelter against anomie.” ~Mary Daly
