TFM Classic: The Traditionalism Cycle: Part 4: Life History Cycle




Time to dust off the whole Traditionalism/Egalitarianism Cycle and make a few more major changes. It’s shrunk from 4 phases to 3, and I am now unsure what to call the middle phase. It was originally called “Gynocentric Traditionalism”, and then was changed to “Egalitarianism”, but both terms have a lot of baggage and require explaining, so I just used the term “Patriarchy” (with quotation marks) to differentiate it from an ACTUAL patriarchy.
