Meeting The Other (How to Learn about Humanity)

I just found an article by author David Maybury-Lewis, where he described the confrontation with people who are different, "others". Meeting the other is combined with lots of prejudices in patriarchal societies. Patriarchal people are not open for something new. (See differences between matriarchal and patriarchal views.)

Saharasia: The 4000 BCE Origins of Child Abuse, Sex-Repression, Warfare and Social Violence

saharasia.jpgExcerpt: New Study of retired professor James DeMeo, Ph.D., on the Origins of Violence Proves: Ancient Humans Were Peaceful, Modern Violence is Avoidable.

His study is unusual in that it presents the first world maps of human behavior, as developed from large anthropological, historical and archaeological data bases. "A massive climate change shook the ancient world, when approximately 6000 years ago vast areas of lush grassland and forest in the Old World began to quickly dry out and convert into harsh desert.

DeMeo points to the work of the controversial natural scientist Wilhelm Reich to explain the patterns.

Can patriarchy be nonviolent?
No. patriarchy is a violent "state of being" by definition. Patriarchy includes duress and force. You are forced to pay taxes, even, if you don't care of getting something back from the state or government. You are forced to send your children to school. Your children are forced to go to school. You are forced to pay for a health insurance, that you maybe do not want. And so on. Just look to your life and check out, what you do not want to do though it would cause no harm.
