At this point I could redundantly list so many examples of this "backward" society"..things like Naming a bill "The Clean Air Act" when in fact it allows more pollution or "No Child Left Behind" which, in my estimation,  leaves not only children but the whole purpose of education behind but if you are a regular reader of OpEd, that would be "preaching to the choir"  Instead of that lets look for solutions.

The next thing that popped into my head while following this trail was"..if this truly is a backward social order".what are the things they do not like or want us to think about or manifest".here's a short list that came up without too much thought

 

 What "they" hate".and this is not in any order;

 

Women's power and rights

 

Sex; and here's a real example of the good old double standard.  While espousing this opinion we find the greatest use of this very "net" is for "porn"

 

Tribalism in any form".from now on when you hear the word Warlord in a news piece try substituting ther phrase "Traditional Tribal Leader"

activist....occupy movement....liberal independant

I have spent most of the last twenty years living with, learning with and sharing life with the Lakota people of the Pine Ridge Reservation"[insert "concentration camp to sub for "reservation"] For years I traveled and taught all over the western United States, as a Sundancer and Pipe Carrier experiencing a life so different from that of the dominate culture that my biggest problem is readjusting to contemporary society. Not only is it difficult, I really do not want to adjust to this insanity that calls itself modern culture
