We are a commune of inquiring, skeptical, politically centrist, capitalist, anglophile, traditionalist New England Yankee humans, humanoids, and animals with many interests beyond and above politics. Each of us has had a high-school education (or GED), but all had ADD so didn't pay attention very well, especially the dogs. Each one of us does "try my best to be just like I am," and none of us enjoys working for others, including for Maggie, from whom we receive neither a nickel nor a dime. Freedom from nags, cranks, government, do-gooders, control-freaks and idiots is all that we ask for.
Great article. I love that stuff. Here's one idea I don't agree with : " Here, too, Wrangham apologetically explains, is probably where the global subjugation of women began. Women, he observes, do most of the cooking in most societies (he describes it as a historic phenomenon, not a biological necessity), "
I think it was both. At least way back it was both as the women could hardly go out and hunt with a baby strapped to their backs.
Nowadays, don't you know, women can bring home the bacon, fry it up in a pan, and never let you forget you're a man.
:) darn... I have that locked in my brain now...
