In the book “Truth or Dare: Encounters with Power, Authority, and Mystery, Starhawk says the voice from patriarchy, which attacks our inherent worth, becomes internalized as the self-hater. It is the old king with five faces: the Conqueror, who treats the self and those around as enemies. The Orderer who inflicts rigid control, the Master of Servants who demands that we deny our own needs and desires to serve others. The Censor who keeps us silent and the Judge, who offers to restore value to us in exchange for obedience.
