- Men are driven to overcome Nature, compete with other men, and control human events. They need only a place to flop, eat, throw their things, and prepare for tomorrows’ battles.
- Fortunately, when political and economic freedom prevails, the greatest legacy of the competitive male nature emerges. Men compete against Nature and among themselves. Their achievements create wealth. This generates economic growth that brightens the future for women and children.
- However, while men produce and problem solve in the normal course of masculine life, their primal ambitions don’t include a female except for sex. Only well-prepared women can overcome the tsunami of resistance in men, when they’re asked to swap their independence for family responsibility.
The question asked in Chapter Three pops up rephrased: How do women capitalize on patriarchy to gain and protect their wealth and their children? The answer: Women capitalize on strengths and minimize weaknesses of both sexes.
Being the relationship experts, women make their relationships work better.

They use femininity to add color to every man’s B&W world, and then each woman selects the best of those screened to help fulfill her own hopes and dreams.
