I don't mean to ask personal questions. That's what it comes down to, though. Personal relationships. Talking about nonmonogamy being better and not caring at all about being your baby's father. Sometimes your views change with experience. Sometimes not.
i am not talking about myself, i am talking about the ideas that control our behaviour.
the example about the australian tribe is not to illustrate that you don't have to care about your baby, but to show that there are other views on reality than ours.
the tribes are much more loving and caring than the people in our societies will ever be, bacuse they have not forgotten what it means to be human and are not convincend that they are bad, sadistical, warloving, fighting, "alpha-males" and submissive "girls" or "women", they are not yet indoctrinated by an ideological construct that detached them from their love and their human behaviour towards each other.
do you think it is normal to rip a baby out of the womb in a room with bright artificial lighting by a stranger in green clothing with a mask on, then sticking a finger up its bum, sticking needles into it, weighing it etc. before all other things and not letting the mother care for it ?
do you think it is normal to let the baby and then child to sleep alone in a bed with bars and in his room and let it cry to let it "be tough" and get "stronger" ? do you think it is normal for a child to sit still from a young age until adulthood on a chair that destroys your back and you have to cripple yourself to sit on ? do you think it is normal for a child to be alone and without parents or friends or peers until the parents come home from work ?
