When we talk about the problems of life, basically we are talking about the problem with men. Men are the problem.
William Blake wrote, "If the men would  do their duty, the women would be wonders."
Yes, men are also raised and molded by women, but the problem is always men and their resistance to truth and humility.

You can discover what your enemy fears most by observing the means he uses to frighten you.

Eric Hoffer (1902 - 1983)
