Minsos offers a new twist on group dynamics, ranging from the smallest unit of the family to the local community and outward, incorporating the larger multicultural world. Dr. Minsos is confident, feisty, and has a sharp wit as she offers a well substantiated perspective on our game playing."

Facing actual war or cold-war affordances, a critical mass of dominators and compliors normally agrees dominators should set masculine manners. In war, citizens usually "get" why masculine policies are favoured over feminine. Unfortunately, in so many of sapiens' culture clubs, prestigious male default (patriarchy) is simply taken for granted as the forever "norm." Not so fast. During those (rare) times when affordances offer a culture club peace and prosperity, the canny feminine rises to the fore and mandates an inclusive, less aggressive form of governance.

Don't let male philosophers fool you. As a fixed evolutionary structure, socialization owes its existence to the interface between Mother and child. Men may believe male cooperation is the fount of socialization. Women know better. Socialization starts with a tiny helpless individual's search for authority. Cultural manners (laws, bylaws, policies, civilities), unlike the fixed and fundamental first rule of socialization, are agile. 

All power structures – culture clubs – have an identical dominator-complior structures. Only cultural manners are different.
