Response to RainDog (Reply #76)

77. Sorry for the post and run

I'm really tired just now, so I'll just say it had a tremendous impact on my thinking at the time. Boiled down, archaeological evidence is there to show that certain cultures existed relatively peacefully for long ages until overrun by hostile tribes from the Steppes, which (among other things) caused a paradigm shift in male-female relations. The differences between the two cultures were: relatively high status for women versus lowly status for women...

Eisler uses the term "paradigm shift" -- if we had such ways of living before, and then it changed (over time), it means we could do it again (over time). What gave me and so many others so much hope at the time was the idea she laid out that we are moving toward another paradigm shift and that we can push it along...

Then Dubya was elected, and I've lost a lot of hope since then.

But I do believe it would be well worth revisiting her ideas, especially in the context of this discussion. Maybe you and I can do this again some more later.
