  1. He gives an excellent presentation of problems and solutions, but how do we deal with the ever-present obstruction in the darkness of human nature? Small, homogeneous groups such as a kibbutz may work for a while, but there will always be forces in dominance, greed, and envy to keep us from Utopia – or Eden. These flaws exist in animal life other than that of homogeneous sapiens (of all colors.)


  2. After 32 years working with children as a child and adolescent psychiatrist, all I can say marblenecltr is that I don’t share you views on human nature. Children aren’t born with dominance, greed and envy. They are born with a natural instinct to share and cooperate. In my experience most women keep this instinct as it’s essential in child rearing. It’s true that some men are shaped by the capitalist system to be violent, dominant, greedy and envious. But in my experience this is a relatively small minority.


    • A look at history and current events has influenced my thinking; I don’t see how a small minority of men have kept the world in perpetual conflict, capitalism, feudalism, or anything else. A definition of “capitalism” would be helpful in any discussion of the subject. I can’t go with Jean-Jacque Rousseau’s “Emile.”
