Which social system do you think would best serve the future development of the human race?

Patriachy - Patriarchy (rule by fathers) is a social system in which the male is the primary authority figure central to social organization and the central roles of political leadership, moral authority, and control of property, and where fathers hold authority over women and children. It implies the institutions of male rule and privilege, and entails female subordination. Many patriarchal societies are also patrilineal, meaning that property and title are inherited by the male lineage. The female equivalent is matriarchy.
( Patriarchy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

Matriachy - Matriarchy is a society in which females, especially mothers, have the central roles of political leadership, moral authority, and control of property. It is also sometimes called a gynarchy, a gynocracy, a gynecocracy, or a gynocentric society. The term for males is patriarchy, but, in feminist theory, it is not exactly a parallel term.[1][2] ( Matriarchy - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )


Egalitarianism - Egalitarianism (from French égal, meaning "equal")—or, rarely, equalitarianism[1][2]—is a trend of thought that favors equality for particular categories of, or for all, living entities. Egalitarian doctrines maintain that all humans are equal in fundamental worth or social status, according to The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy.[3] The Cultural theory of risk holds egalitarianism as defined by (1) a negative attitude towards rules and principles, and (2) a positive attitude towards group decision-making, with fatalism termed as its opposite.[4] ( Egalitarianism - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia )

Many people falsely claim we live in a solely patriarchal society, when in reality we live in a society that is a combination of patriarchal and matriarchal ideologies. We are slowly becoming an Egalitarian society, which I think should be the ultimate goal. I personally feel that embracing either patriarchy or matriarchy is a bad idea as both seek to put one gender above the other.

I would say we currently life in a society that is slightly egalitarian Patriarchy, Matriarch,and Anarchy. It varies from place to place.

Safety nets for the poor, it's Matriarchy.
Marketing, it's Matriarchy.
Legislation, it's Matriarchy and occasionally egalitarian.
Education and healthcare, it's Matriarchy.
Reproductive and parental rights, it's Matriarch.
Resources for abused men and women, Matriarchy.
Military is two parts, it's mostly Patriarchy with hints of Matriarch. Women can now serve in all area of the military. When women are required to sign up for selective service, then it will be egalitarian.
When it comes to rate of pay and employment, it depends on the field.
Protection under the law, Matriarchy.
Politics, Patriarchy. But only now due to lack of qualified candidates and campaign efforts.

That is just a short list and is in no way complete.

I say just let people live how they want. My wife and I want a home where I work and bring home the bread and do the discipline when it needs done she stays home,keeps the home clean,cooks etc. She was raised that way as was I. Some call it horrible or old fashioned I say its perfectly normal. It doesn't fit everyone and that's fine.

I prefer the republican form of government, where the people are sovereigns, and the government is their servant.
But if folks want the democratic form of government, where the people are subjects and the government rules them, who am I to say they can't.
