I can dig it. Only b/c you prefaced it w/ a RATIONAL patriarchy. That is what's missing in the AA community right now. The RATIONALITY of it. What I'm wondering though, is if it is possible for a society, or a community, to have a balance between patriarchy & matriarchy. Like, a co-existence, and co-leadership type of thing. I went to school w/ this guy, whose family was Mexican and African-American, and they believed in co-leadership of the parents, and co-representation of the the lineages through their progeny. Consequently, the dude's last name was hyphenated. His father's African-American name first, followed by his mother's Mexican name. Other boys in the family had the reverse, so that either way, both names would be carried down through the generations, assuming all of the boys had offspring. I thought that was very interesting. Kind of like the mayor of L.A., who took on part of his wife's name, and combined it w/ his, so that both of their names will be passed down to their children, grand-children, etc.
