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.
Based on his plea to dump moral relativism for institutionalized morality and ethics, societies that view women as lesser beings will remain under the Malthusian bar. If we can't change that in a culture, they will remain in bondage to Malthus' predictions of failure or at least the status quo - which is failure by the standards of all civilized and successful countries.
