Given that political philosophy and alternative governmental systems are topics I find particularly interesting, this should be a good topic to start with.

This is pretty relevant:

https://en.wikipedia.org...

Human matriarchy has never really existed on a societal scale. However, there do seem to be plenty of examples of matriarchal family structures in societies that have low paternal investment for men. In other words, Africa. Some of that has translated into the modern inner city after our brilliant overlords decided that the whole nuclear family and free market economic models were soooooooo outdated in the 1960s....

"Many, many hundreds of years ago, Menominee were matriarchal," she explains. Historically, the Menominee differentiated between chief and clan leaders; the women were the clan leaders, and one of their duties was the selection of a chief. But men in Menominee culture weren"t just chiefs and warriors, Fowler elaborates. "Indian males, as opposed to their non-Indian counterparts are more helpful around the home, doing household tasks, cooking and parenting. As my mother, whose first language was Menominee, would tell us: "There is no such thing as men"s work or women"s work, it is all just work, so get busy and do it!""

Doubt it patriarchy is universal.

I think looking at the world along "matriarchy" and "patriarchy" lines is inherently unhealthy. It's pretty similiar to looking at sex in a "dominant" and "submissive" mentality.

The fact of the matter is, men and women work together in a complimentary sense, and problems arise when we stop doing this.

Nowadays, people have very unhealthy attitudes, but liberal dummies consider it progress. "Sexual liberation" has done a great deal to enslave people to sex and destroy the family. It's all bad mental health.
And as Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of man be lifted up: That whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have eternal life. As many as received him, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name: which were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of man, but of the will of God. The hour cometh, and now is, when the true worshippers shall worship the Father in spirit and in truth,
