A World Without Men

By Ben Cohen

Charlie Broker makes a rather convincing argument that the world would be a far better place if men took the back seat for the next 10 years:

We don’t need a few women in conspicuous positions of power scattered


here and there – we need a 10-year prohibition on all forms of male


power. Seriously: a decade in which men don’t get to control anything,


from the remote control upwards. Imagine the consequences. For one


thing, there would be an instant and massive reduction in armed


conflict around the globe. Sure, nations would routinely bitch about


each other in secret (and with a new, hair-curling viciousness), but


there’d be fewer intercontinental punch-ups and a far smaller bodycount.
