One trap can be falling into the either/or regarding the dualities. One can be for neither patriarchy nor matriarchy, but gylany, which honors both genders. During the Cold War, Americans were fed the false dichotomy of choosing capitalism or communism, with capitalism falsely called the free system and communism the one that imprisons people. When the USA overthrew the Marxist government of Chile (and many others like it), the false dichotomy that the USA purveyed of free/unfree about capitalism/communism was laid bare. Any attempt by the was thus demonized, then subjected to military and covert attack by the USA, and . Some dichotomies appear to have little middle ground, such as . Various paradigms have become entrenched, with great economic, political, and sociological consequences attending the adherence to paradigms, or challenging them. Each of the prevailing ideologies, whether it is , or consumerism, has its foot soldiers that defend the paradigm that puts food on their table.

In America in the early 21st century, Caesarean section "childbirth" was performed in about a quarter of all births. In Europe, where they did not wipe out all the midwives, the rate was half of America's, and in Japan, the rate was only 7%. In profit-making hospitals, the rate in America was more than a third, and some doctors warned that it would go over 50% in the day's legal climate, in which the "when in doubt, cut it out" philosophy guides hospital doctors. It already was 50% in some hospitals, if the woman was white with medical insurance. In 2010, the USA's rate rose to 33%. As Americas Caesarian rate has gone up, its infant mortality ranking among the worlds nations has correspondingly dropped. The Caesarian rate in the USA is more than three times Japans, and its infant mortality rate is nearly twice as high, and is higher than that of any nation in Western Europe.
When a Kansas insurance company began paying doctors the same amount for delivering a child, whether the birth was Caesarean or not, Caesarean sections declined by over half within one year. In a hospital in Pithiviers, France, supervised for many years by an enlightened male obstetrician, where they do not induce labor or unduly interfere, the Caesarian rate is less than 7%, substantially less than nearly any Western hospital. At a home birth community in Tennessee known as The Farm, the Caesarean rate was less than 2%. The stress on the infant and mother is enormously higher with Caesarean birth, as well as "complications" that risk their lives. Even with normal births, the episiotomy rate in American hospitals approaches 100%, while it is about 6% in Scandinavian hospitals. Episiotomy is a painful and dangerous practice that causes severe complications with mothers, but in the rush to cut, the practice is standard in American hospitals. Midwifed births have a far lower infant mortality rate than doctor-supervised hospital births. Women report far more satisfaction with the childbirth process if they can deliver it outside of a hospital environment, particularly in America, where women are often seen as little more than packages to be opened to remove the prize. A mother's complication rate is many times higher with Caesarian section births than vaginal delivery, and their death rate is much higher.
Essay on The Play American Dreams, by Studs Terkel
As the new lens-making technologies that made telescopes possible also made microscopes possible, exploration of the previously invisible world began, as well as exploration of the Earths farthest corners, usually in the name of conquest and subjugation. Midwives and herbalists still practiced, although they were increasingly subject to repression. Disease was studied by the new science of medicine. The practice of Western medicine, however, did not change much during the 16th through 18th centuries. While women specialized in the gentle medicine of herbs and nutrition, the male-dominated medical profession used leeches, purgatives, emetics, surgery, and other violent methods. European women healers found it increasingly difficult to work from the time of Vesalius onward. Epidemic disease swept through Europe regularly. European cities were . With numbing regularity, famine, disease, or warfare (or all three) would march through, carrying off vast numbers of souls. The only way that Europes cities kept their populations stable was through a constant influx of from the countryside, to replace those who died off in the cities. As Europeans sailed the high seas, natives in the New World, Australia, the South Pacific, and elsewhere died off from European-introduced disease in stupefying numbers. Perhaps 50 million Native Americans died off from European-introduced disease during the 16th century, with maybe another 20 million being worked and abused to death, in history's , which killed off perhaps 90% or more of a hemispheres human population.

Unless we put medical freedom into the Constitution, the time will come when medicine will organize into an undercover dictatorship...To restrict the art of healing to one class of men and deny equal privileges to others will constitute the Bastille of medical science. All such laws are un-American and despotic and have no place in a republic...The Constitution of this Republic should make special provisions for medical freedom as well as religious freedom."

The Enlightenment began in France, and in no small measure had the European experience in North America to thank. Although the Enlightenment looked back to ancient Greeces democracy for political inspiration, in major ways classical Greece was a poor example: slaves outnumbered citizens in Athens and women were nearly prisoners in their homes. When the Enlightenment began, humanitys only functioning democracy was the in the area of present-day New York State. Iroquoian women elected the chiefs, ran village life, and cast their childrens vote in proxy, for a balance of power between the sexes that no Western society has yet approached. History being the ultimate ironist, George Washington led the effort to eradicate Iroquois society. The in much the same way as 1940s Jews saw Adolf Hitler. The largely classless societies among the North American natives, and the freedom that was such a natural part of native life, were attractive to Europeans, which led to a long-standing colonial problem: colonists . Later theorists such as Friedrich Engels drew upon the Iroquoian example. The Iroquoian government was very democratic, with decentralized power and had no executive branch, which monarchical Europe could not countenance, so the framers of the USA's Constitution invented the executive branch, which has undermined the other branches ever since, amassing power to itself (so that those who control the president control the government). Ben Franklin, the American ambassador to France, .
