Lyrics

(Source: as heard)

I do think that women could make politics irrelevant, by a kind of spontanous cooperative action, the like of which we have never seen, which so far from people's ideas of state structure and viable social structure, that seems to them like total anarchy, and what it really is is very subtle forms of interrelation, which do not follow a sort of hierarchical pattern, which is fundamentally patriarchal. The opposite to patriarchy is not matriarchy but fraternity, and I think it's women who are going to have to break the spiral of power and find the trick of cooperation.
