    Females and chaos and males and order may very well have a basis in the somewhat accepted idea that women are so heavily influenced by their emotions while males are so easily able to overlook their emotions and plod ahead with what they have in mind. That would be a good reason for us both to work together rather than to compete with one another.

    Marketing and women’s power over men go hand in hand don’t they? Did not the marketing people use and abuse women’s sexuality for so many decades for profit, and still do to get the attention of men? Why of course they do, because it works and they are not shy about taking advantage of it. .

    As a man that was fortunate to have lived under the Honor Code, I can tell you that whether it was perfect or not, whether all of us who functioned within it remained true to its tenants or stretched the lines, being part of a place where all men always told the truth at all cost (at least in theory) was glorious and unimaginable for those who never experienced it. I cannot overemphasize the feeling of security that one has when he lives within a system where all men refuse to lie about anything. Lies are the seeds of evil and they degrade everything that they come into contact with and yes, a diabolical society will always be the result.

    Thank you so much for touching on the pedophilia issue that America does not seem to be able to even talk about. Why anybody would subject children to such abuse seems to be a question that no one can bear to ask, but I do believe that the motivation is clear and simple. The destruction innocence. Those demented few who have lost their own innocence and cannot bear to see others that still have theirs intact, are somehow compelled to remove innocence where it still remains. Does misery not love company? At least sometimes it is true, no?

    Why are men so attracted to women? Clearly it is part of our basic programming for if we were not, there would be no procreation would there? It is certainly our biggest weakness as men and it has caused more difficulties than just about every other issue in history, hasn’t it? Oh well, everything can’t be easy can it?

    I am halfway through this excellent discussion and I will have to check out the rest of it tomorrow, but I was also struck by the idea that a formative period in childhood in which your sense of self was sabotaged was responsible for what we eventually become. It reminded me of what John Frankenheimer said about Burt Lancaster in a documentary about the man. He said, “Burt had a better sense of who he was than almost any man I know., and because of that there was nothing that I know that he was afraid of. He knew exactly who he was and he was comfortable with it.”. Later.

      As you have described, the “human sciences” (lacking a better label) have well established that social order is reliant upon institutionally balancing the tension between the innate difference between the two sexual agenda. institutions of legal decree, such as issued by priest or judges backed by adjudicated punishment, have always been found to play a lessor part than are peer enforced consensus decorum about acceptable standards of behavior.

      Simply stated, your citing of the value of “honor codes” is backed by research which has shown such to be the more critical toward sustaining social order and cohesiveness,mainly because of their immediacy of effect in the minute to minute, “in your face” personal interactions of daily life. Peer pressure, essentially, having all the nuanced effect of a mother’s scolding.

      Walter B. Women are not more emotional than men. It’s just that they tend to verbalise their emotions more. Men are much more likely to indulge in physical violence than women. Men are much more likely to drive faster and indulge in risky behaviour. Men are far less likely to restrain themselves sexually. Men are far more likely to abandon their children because they generally aren’t as patient as women. Aren’t all these actions emotionally driven?
      At school too, boys are much more fidgety than girls. The reason why females are doing better scholastically than males in the senior years of high school/college has been put down to the fact that males take longer to mature emotionally and that the areas of their brains re self control don’t fully activate until they are about 24 years of age.
      I am generalising of course. We can all think of many exceptions. And that’s the trouble with this whole male/ female discussion. There are 3.5 BILLION females on our planet. And the same for men. Within each sex ( and race for that matter) there are huge differences of personality, character, intelligence, views, preferences and interests. Although there are obvious physical differences between males and females ( and between white people and people of colour) there are huge overlaps in all other areas.
      And it’s important to remember that people are heavily influenced by their cultures. Given freedom from outdated cultural and social restraints, the apparent differences between men and women, between races and people of different countries disappear. All individuals should be regarded as human beings first, before they are seen as males/females/black/Chinese etc.
      People who have a tendency to simplistic and dichotomous thinking see only the differences. They are blind to the true reality.

    Thank you for the great interview!

    About 50 min in Jasun Horsley mentioned the book “the Underground History of American Education”.

    I’m telling you J.H., you have to read some of John Gatto’s work; I think his ideas (really revelations about the true nature of the school system) to be an essential piece to understand the darkness that has encircled our society.

    Here’s a link to an essay by John Gatto:


    The essay is a speech Gatto gave upon his reception of NY State “Teacher of the Year” 1991 where he attacks the very system that was honoring him. Is worth checking out!
