    Be wary of people who tend to glorify the past, underestimate the present, and demonize the future.

    It has nothing to do with instinct and genetics. My mother is my mother(I know because of DNA tests), but even if she wasn't I'd treat her the same way. If I had no idea who she was, but she was still my biological mother, I wouldn't treat her the same way.

    You don't need to know who is your genetic mother. Instinct will protect against harming the ones who care for you and with whom you have the strongest emotional bond, and in great majority cases is your natural mother.

    Modern men are largely feminized and beta. Meanwhile the women are trying to behave like men. Now this could partially be due to all sorts of hormone intake from bottled water, soy, etc. But it is also very evidently due to social engineering by the Frankfurt school.

    Good heavens! This sounds very serious indeed. Can't have women getting an education and using their brains in the world outside the home. Whatever will be the outcome? :)

    Asians have been consuming Soya for the past 4000 years. All men should be transvestites by now

    I'm quite mystified by this notion that strength and masculinity and virility can't co-exist with a capacity for tenderness and sweetness and gentleness in the right situation.

    Maybe it's a cultural thing, or maybe it's a very "young man" thing, or a combination of both and too many video games.

    In the very late middle ages men from rich families used to wear wigs, make up and high heals. There is nothing effeminate about men today except they can afford to care more for their looks afford better clothing and do not have jobs to wear them down to looking old by the age of 40. Also they have a better education.

    Sophistication should not be confused with feminism. Men with low incomes and worked manual long laborious hours in the toughest conditions had no choice but to sound wild and rough in their speech and very rugged in their looks. The circumstances do make you act that way.

    Good point. The environment we grow in can make us bloody warriors or couch potatoes whose closest encounter with valiance is from football game on TV. One of funny examples of behavioral differences, is when western hardy travelers get to local African villages and take part in sacrificing goat or a cow. When the throat is cut and blood is gashing all villages, including kids rejoice, while the western traveler don't know where to hid from this terrible experience.

    Generally speaking, life was more cruel in the past and so were the people.

    Indeed it was more though all the way round. It seems with all the ups and downs which modern life presents today nobody would want to go back to those rough days. Another reality is that very very few had it good but most of the population used to live in hard conditions even in the richest economies of the time.

    Couple of years ago I composed a little article about how it used to be for ordinary folk way back.

    Good question, in the beginning I would have thought he would have been seen as barbaric and a savage, but then remembering what the reason was I am sure that he would have got some gratitude, but no sympathy if he was a single dad......not sure how many of them are around anyway as in most cases its the mum who raises the kids in case of separations and divorce if Im not mistaken.

    I think that mother did the right thing. Here, no one knows the whole situation. If the child aggresively behaves, then this is very bad and it is necessary for him to understand that it is impossible to do this. But in general, I am opposed to beating children.

    She is a mother, she did what she thanks that it is better to her son. Because of that brick he can go to the jail, that's why she did that, i think she loves him and don't want to lose him, it may be a reason of slapping.

    Personally I am not in favour of hitting children and I think there are other ways one can pass on a message that a child could be doing wrong. To be fair I know a number of people that boast their parents were tough as giving them the occasional smack and now they say they appreciated what they did. However I feel that even if the siblings would come to this sort of conclusion they can pass this sort of behavior as correct with having worse consequences in other situations. If not mistaken it is also known that Bullying at schools is quite related to parents bullying their children by letting off steam (so to speak) on vulnerable children.
