Seems to have been a major contributor, at least. I'm not sure I'd call it the ultimate foundation or even necessarily the beginning of it all, though.

I'm open to a lot of anti-civilisation, anti-technology, and anti-mediation critiques.

Right. There have always been humans that did shitty things to others, but with the rise of civilization shittiness became codified into cultural norms. So while non-civilized patriarchies have existed, there have also been many non-civ cultures that approached things in different ways. It's with the rise of civilizations that male-dominance became standardized.

I guess the key is choice. If you have only one system that has its fingers wrapped around the whole globe, you can't get away from it and build your own society.
