Hi! Come join "Hestia's New World" group *Forum*, versatile group research and discussion site, linked to the social *Community* of the same name on Google+. We’ll see how our use of both develops.
I personally think that Pat Thompson's invention of “Hestian Home Economics” is a shockingly insightful new way to understand the world of social and economic relationships, the greatest innovation in social thinking in some time...! It also caught the feminist world quite off guard, and in ten years has stimulated no apparent discussion,... something maybe to discuss and share. JLH
Hestia's New World concerns the intersection of 3000 years of patriarchal cultures, and the new insights on how that happened and why it won't work. Bring the forum your explorations, your questions and answers, your recognition of others on the path, your ideas for how to communicate and bridge the perceptual barriers our long "experiment" with looking at the world as an abstraction has given us.
Oh, I forgot to say who I was sending this to. I went through my good correspondents from the last few years, and picked out the 20 or so really smart feminists and a smaller number of guys with global vision, who I have so enjoyed for thinking beyond roles.
The issue really isn't whether women get equal rewards as "team players" in our culture's rapid squandering of the earth, is it? Isn't it closer to how desperately we need to restore the severely marginalize archetypes and knowledge of "making homes", allow our species to make its good home on earth?
