Although civilizations don't form just like that, unlike the 'pocket
civilizations' of the past, the formation of Modern Civilizations is much
more complex. It has taken centuries to form and there is no single entity,
country, continent, or gender that has formed it. While in terms of gender,
both sexes have contributed, in terms of race, all races have done so.
Similarly, several revolutions, ideologies, and personalities have
contributed to its formation. Although it sounds strange, while even
communism has contributed to its formation, amongst the giant
personalities, even Sigmund Freud has done so.
It is true that world has changed so much since the days of Sigmund
Freud, when he was a towering figure respected by many. Surprisingly,
despite so much of the prestige he had in his days, he is the only thinker
who has been derided by so much. Once labelled the 'Father of
Psychology', now the New Yorker even debunks him as a thinker. As if
the then feminists were much ahead of today's psychologists and
reporters, they had criticised Freud a long time ago. It is a different story
that patriarchy refused to listen to the ranting of a few masculinised
women, as the Freudians called them.
Rebuked by feminists, then by all today, it must be mad to believe that
Freud contributed to the formation of the Modern Civilization. The simple
answer to this is the conundrum that the world was very different at the
time when Freud brought out his theories. He must be judged by the
standards of his time and the things he gave to the then world, not by
The surprising thing is that this man, who was born as Sigismund on the
6th of May 1856, in the Czech Republic, became a professor
extraordinaire in 1902 following the publication of 'Interpretation of dream'
and later died in Britain in 1939, is criticized even now by the media
moguls like the Times. This itself speaks volumes about the gift of this
man. Even if he was wrong, he was the man who started the 'man is
psych' and was regarded as the Father of Psychology. Unlike fathering a
child, this title needs much more.
Although often seen as para-science, Psychology now grabs the respect
of science itself. It has produced both researchers and professionals who
help many patients. Although his demeaning of women is legendary,
almost as a blessing in disguise, he is the one who started sthe exual
revolution that made women become aware of their body's powers.
Furthermore, cruel to women, human history has not been nice to the
children either. It was not unusual for a parent to tell the teacher, 'You can
beat the hell out of him but make him become a good student.' Freud
alerted the world about the effect of trauma on kids.

Power: Its Past, Its Present, Its Future: Femocracy' discusses in much
