Politics is a Proxy for Violence

Politics is a proxy for violence between men. A market for trades to avoid violence.

Women have permission to use this proxy -within limits. But risking life and limb is not substitutable. They risk men, not themselves.

So, women: be very careful what you do with that violence. Because men are very aware that the proxy is revokable, and we can return to violence.

We always, like children, test one another. Sometimes we find the limits .Unfortunately, the limit in politics is the restoration of violence.
