In "When She Awoke," Hilary Jordan has put a woman into the White Male System writ large and then shows that same young woman triumphing over that System by destroying its foundational myth. In the White Male System, which is always true, always explains everything, always knows the truth, definition of life is more important than life itself and the deductive, deontological ethic that flows from that system must always have the final word on what is right or wrong, good or evil. However, the System ultimately reveals itself as Evil incarnate, as the destructive Procrustean bed from which no one rises unscathed. Only when the animus is made real by the anima, only when we move beyond the male and the female into the non-dual world of the human person, only then can we find compassion beyond power. Hilary Jordan has given us a terrifying glimpse into the world being prepared by the ethnocentric, Ayn Rand disciples who are more and more dominating our governing, our worship, and our culture. "Red" means alarm! When WE awake and see the false system which attempts to judge our live and to impose its power & system upon those lives, we can begin to dismantle the lies that have destroyed the lives and spirits of both men and woman and to see the world and the good through each other's eyes. The truth lies not in laws but in compassionate love tht goes beyond fear into final integrity.
