Rape | A World Pandemic

Leave a comment

I live in Florida in the US and I have met very few women who have not experienced rape, molestation or other sexual violence.

Derrick Jensen explains very clearly why this is so in his book A Language Older Than Words.

Colonization and patriarchy are violence based hierarchical systems that are holographic-meaning that the microcosm is replicated in the microcosm. Ie, war between nations is mirrored in family violence, rape and child molestation.

The process of enculturation in such a system requires and produces traumatization which is repeated frequently thru the lifespan of each individual in various ways.

Until we transform the system, the results of the system such as rape, human trafficking, child abuse and molestation, factory farming, environmental degradation, poverty and other forms of oppression will be intransigent as well.
