...for thousands of years it seems... what's been happening is the growing domination of the the rules of commerce in the "public sphere" over the ancient relationships of family culture humans make the center of their own lives, a process not just marginalizing women, but the roles of men in their own primary relationships too, in the "private sphere"!!

My thinking has grown with recalling the times in history when societies were led by strong family cultures, both ancient and modern, as a fresh source of roles and relationships to learn from.  That would include the early period of the great English family world, and the first 200 years of the American family as the deep anchor of what became modern America.

 

What other examples are there of worlds in which strong families made the integrity of the culture, as examples to learn from?

 

If authoritarian cultures follow rules for increasing domination, undermining the integrity of family culture, where are the examples to learn from how it happens and what the choices are?
