Nipping The Roots Of Violence

What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails
And puppy-dogs' tails
And what are little girls made of?
Sugar and spice
And everything nice… Really?

Culture Wars Aganist Women

TWO CULTURAL BRAINS is a synthesis of SSAD Theory that describes the dominant role that PAIN and PLEASURE have in shaping the developing brain. THE FIRST BRAIN in evolution: The sub-cortical emotional-social sexual brain that is shaped primarily by the Matrilineal Cultures (Pleasure); and the SECOND BRAIN in evolution: the neocortical rational symbolic brain that is shaped primarily by the Patrilineal Cultures (Pain) which forms the Gender Equality Equation that exist throughout the World Cultures.

Celebrating Josephh Chilton Pearce

Continuing to focus on the way culture shapes our reality Joe notes: ‘One of the things that culture brings about is the idea that without its guiding filters we would be like beasts in the forest, savage, uncivilized, murderous, etc. The truth of the matter is, culture is what makes us savage, vicious, murderous, war after war after war because of the restrictions and restraints imposed by culture. Both neural scientist James Neal and Alan Shore question: “Will we survive the current situation?” And both Neal and Shore, said “Only if we can produce males capable of nurturing their offspring.” And this sets the stage for a radically different view of the nurturing role of males.

Distressingly, violence on campuses is part of a larger epidemic of sexual violence in the United States, making it a major women's issue.

Tragically, we are again reminded of the Violence against Women and her Children that goes well beyond the U.S. borders.  Sexual violence is a world-wide problem that calls for world-wide solutions.

Male Vulnerability and Violence

Insight Title: 
Male Vulnerability and Violence
Author: 
Joseph Chilton Pearce
Abstract: 
Males are aborted much or frequently than females. They suffer more birth defects and psychological challenges. In non-industrialized societies the relationship between the lack of early nurturing of male children and later adult male violence is recognized. Joe describes why males are more vulnerable and how this leads to violence.

Guns, Bonding and Addiction

By some measure violence is down. The sensational home run violence, mass shootings are up, along with the exponential increase of SWAT teams using military armaments and shock-and-awe tactics against living room poker games.

The less bonded we feel to other human beings, nature and the environment the more likely we are to feel defensive and in a completely industrial, virtual, technological society, the quicker we reach for that .38 tucked under the pillow.

Joseph Chilton Pearce
Abstract: 
Our most chronic young criminals often have no capacity for internal imaging. Lacking this they must resort to primitive, physical, sensory motor, reflexive responses to the world, which is often violent.
