Paul Krugman has noted that there are Two Public Moralities, which reflect the Two Americas that have existed since the days of our Founding Fathers.

Sarah Palin Stokes The Fire Of The U.S. Culture Of Violence

America is a Culture of Violence. Assassination of our political leaders has a long
history in this nation. Abraham Lincoln, John F. Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy, Martin
Luther King, Jr. are in recent memory of this history and now we must add liberal
Democratic Representative Gabrielle Gifford, 8th District, Arizona, as a potential victim.
It is of more than passing interest that the victims of these assassinations represent the
liberal wing of America political thought and action. Questions must be raised as to the
origins of political/social conservatism in the genesis of these assassinations.

Genital Mutilation of Children is Torture II

The First International Symposia On Circumcision in 1989 unanimously declared that the genital mutilation of children is torture. David Levy in a published study in 1945 titled “Psychic Trauma of Operations in Children” described suicidal and homicidal behaviors in a six- year old child consequent to circumcision when he declared: “I wish I were dead” and “played numerous killing games, in which his father was the principal victim”.

Federal Law established Female Genital Mutilation as a crime (PL 104-208), March 30,1997) where the 14th Amendment states “nor deny to any person within its jurisdiction the equal protection of the laws”, which extends the criminal sanctions under PL 104-208 to male children, yet to be recognized by the Congress.

Sexual Monogamy & Violence Against Women Part 2

EVIDENCE FROM THE HUMAN RELATIONS AREA FILES.

James W. Prescott, Ph.D.
Institute of Humanistic Science


In Sex at Dawn: The Prehistoric Origins of Modern Sexuality," by Christopher Ryan and Cacilda Jethá, an examination of prehistoric sex (pre-agriculture where earliest evidence of agriculture dated to about 8000 BCE) where hunter gatherers/foragers dominated this planet revealed a pattern of sharing and egalitarianism that included multiple sexual relationships. For perspective, the authors observed, “the amount of time our species has spent living in settled agricultural societies represents just 5 percent of our collective experience, at most”. They cited Jared Diamond: “The shift to agriculture is a ‘catastrophe from which we have never recovered’ ”.
