Why has the social adolescence of our culture grown into such an extended period of time, while Leaver cultures seem to push their children into their role at a faster rate? Is it because of the Leaver vs. Taker education systems that are outlined in My Ishmael?
I replied that in tribal culture there is/was no salvationist religion and therefore there are/were no “thou shalt not . . .” laws, and they live/lived much more in peace with themselves and the world than our culture does. My teacher refuses to believe this, so I decided to research it and see what I could find.
Do you have any suggestions as to where I can find resources that describe tribal law as constructive as opposed to oppressive (thou shalt not . . .)?
