My name is Jytte Nhanenge. I am deeply concerned about global poverty, the effects of which kill 50,000 people daily. I worked with development in Africa for many years, but had to conclude that in its present form, development cannot alleviate poverty. After a lengthy study period I found what I trust is the root cause of poverty and inequality, and all other global crises: patriarchal domination. It is a dualist and reductionist perceptual system that prioritizes all considered masculine or yang, while subordinating all being feminine or yin.
I wrote a dissertation on the subject that later was published. The title is, "Ecofeminism: Towards Integrating the Concerns of Women, Poor People, and Nature into Development."
I am just about to finalize building a website over the values in the book. In short it is called "Intsangano." It is an educational website, explaining how the political and economic elites – called Patriarchy – have managed to earn huge profits based on dominating society and exploiting nature, causing serious crises for life everywhere. We need to educate ourselves in order to understand, how the elite manage to rule this world via their ideology, structures, and institutions. When we grasp their manipulation, we can together end this dangerous, life-threatening domination and create a quality of life for society and nature worldwide.

My own finding is that first and foremost action in nonviolence (Ahimsa) is the personal aspect of turning to become a vegetarian. It is kind-of easy if not other-intentional to be non violent with…Continue
