As you are no doubt aware, on the 14th April an islamist militant group called Boko Haram kidnapped more than 200 school girls in Nigeria in north-east Borno state.
Now to get to the bottom of what we can learn from this we have to start with the meaning of Boko Haram which means “Western education is forbidden” in the local Hausa language.
So do these people hate the west? Or hate western education? Or do they just hate education? How can anyone have so much hate again people learning things? After all isn’t that how we progress as a society?
Well yes it is but in a Sex 2.0 society (and if you are reading this then, yes, you were born into a Sex 2.0 society too) we are raised our entire lives to believe in what I call the Sex 2.0 deal.
The Sex 2.0 Deal
There are two sides to this deal – the male side and the female side.
Women born into a Sex 2.0 society are raised their entire lives to believe that they have to sell their sexuality in exchange for security. Ultimately the security of marriage to a man.
The male side of the deal is that men are raised their entire lives to believe that if you want a long term relationship with a woman you have to claim her sexuality as property (via marriage) or you can’t be sure that you are raising your own kids.
Now we are starting to get a little closer to the root cause of the problem here.
It’s not the west that these groups hate, nor is it even education. What they hate is anything that might challenge the female side of the Sex 2.0 deal.
If women have access to education then they could get good jobs. Jobs that pay good money.
If they get access to a job and good money then they have access to social mobility.
If they have access to social mobility then they can provide their own security and do not need to sell their sexuality in exchange for security and get married.
In other words, if women can provide their own security then the female side of the Sex 2.0 deal becomes obsolete.
And that is what they are deathly afraid of.
This was also the case with Malala Yousafzai the 16 year old Pakistani schoolgirl who survived being shot in the head by Taliban insurgents in 2012 for daring to campaign for girls’ education.
So the link between education for women and the Sex 2.0 deal is perfectly clear. Education for women is a threat to the Sex 2.0 deal and many people around the world are prepared to use violence to protect the Sex 2.0 deal.
People Are Not Property
As if this link were not clear enough, Abubakar Shekau threatened to “sell” the students, saying they should not have been in school in the first place, but rather should get married.
And here we get to the root cause of the problem. Sex 2.0 actively promotes the idea that people are property. More specifically people are sexual property. Property which is to be claimed, bought, sold, bargained or given away.
Think we don’t have this attitude in modern western society and we are so much more advanced that these “backwards” extremists?
What does the father of the bride do on her daughter’s wedding day in the modern western world? He “gives her away”.
You cannot “give away” something unless you own it.
But we understand that people are not property in the modern west right?
Well not quite. The western response was to start a campaign called “bring back our girls” complete with social media hashtag and a plea by the first lady …
And the British prime minister.
See the problem here?
Yep, the world “our” is the possessive in the English language along my “mine” and “yours” and “theirs”.
The statement from this campaign is clear. Those girls are not “yours” but “ours”. Give us back our property.
The Sex 3.0 position on people as property is quite clear and is summed up as follows.
An element of consciousness cannot be a unit of property.
Think that you “own” your dog or your cat? Guess what? Of the two of you, you are the only one that has any concept of property.
Elements of consciousness cannot and should not ever be regarded as units of property.
When elements of consciousness ARE units of property we have a word for it. It’s called slavery.
Well one thing we can learn is the problem is fear.
Fear of that which threatens the Sex 2.0 deal even though access to social mobility for women and DNA paternity testing for men have rendered both sides of the Sex 2.0 deal completely obsolete.
Another things we can learn is that people are not property.
Sadly Sex 2.0 actively promotes the idea that they are so can we really be surprised that this happened or is the only real surprise is not that this happened but that doesn’t this happen more often?
