Summary
The saga of 500 years of oppression by white European men is discussed. Women and their deeds are prominent in the text. It is further discussed that freedom (even in sexual matters) is not the invention of more recent decades. The author presents decadence as the normal close of great periods and a necessary condition to inspire remedies
