Unreal step back in time

American Women vs Men: Susan B. Anthony (1820-1906) A civil rights leader, dedicated her life to the belief that all people are equal. She spoke out against violence toward women and slavery. Her work was pivotal to the anti-slavery movement and women achieving the vote. Alice Paul (1885-1977) Co-founder of the Natl Women’s Party, a suffragist and the original author of the Equal Rights Amendment proposed in 1923. Margaret Sanger (1879-1966) Founded the NBCL (today’s Planned Parenthood). Her efforts led to the Supreme Court ruling allowing doctors to legally provide contraception. Sanger’s efforts lifted families out of poverty by liberating women from unrelenting pregnancy and made it possible for women to experience much broader life options. Many more dedicated their entire lifes to fight injustice. Today, community clinic nurses are, in fact, the main providers of contraception.

Worldwide politics today are as horrifically self-serving as the clerics that lost The Crusade wars for 200 yrs and counting. Using religion as an excuse to sustain control over populations in favor of the powerful few has historically proved that all sides were in the wrong. It was and still is barbaric because war sustains poverty and slavery to achieve their modern dictatorial goals - a legacy of ancient imperialism.
