Iceland it is for us, then :( It may be cold, but we get Bjørk.

I have a really hard time imagining you speaking with an Australian accent, Cog. You're an android in my mind (even though Ive seen your photo). Androids don't speak Australian.
They speak Kiwi

Edit: Sounds weird hearing my own voice.

Similar I guess, a shame really the kiwis have a great accent.

I live in a nanny state called Queensland, I only just made that connection and it amuses me to no end, anyway the nanny state has nothing to do with gender politics and everything with conservatives eroding our freedoms, most female politicians are actually in the opposition. Would they be better? I dunno.
the instinct to nanny is a more maternal one (on average) and so would be more likely to manifest in a matriarchy than in a patriarchy. mothers must be attuned to the unsophisticated and pre-rational emotions of their infants, placate their tantrums and provide everything they need whilst controlling their environment as much as possible to ensure their survival. the paternal side of this coin is to assist the growing child in the transition into rationality, self-reliance and personal responsibility; the values of classical liberalism which are the bedrock of the evil western patriarchies

...no I don't get it, please try again.

From my perspective maternal instincts don't translate into written policy, rather women are more willing to compromise than men who take the simpler more authoritarian option and just ban whatever appears to be causing the issue.

The "nanny" state is a misnomer, it's the overbearing authoritarian father state.

there are fundamental differences between males and females due to both cultural factors and biological imperatives. these affect personality and behaviour and political choices which in turn influence social policy, with females tending towards the political left

like the oedipal mother, the socialist state seeks to engineer its populace (infant) into a state of permanent helplessness and dependence in order to justify its own existence. that is the worst potential extreme of "matriarchy" imo

What does the worst potential extreme of patriarchy look like?

callous and overly demanding of self-reliance, neglectful of welfare etc even for those with genuine need, severe/unforgiving criminal justice, lack of protective workers' rights/safety regulation; the reverse of the nannying pathology - extreme grow the fuck up vs stay a baby forever
