You’d think we had this problem solved, by now, surely.

Old prejudices die hard, I guess, but some more “education” will surely root them out and change human  nature….

    This kind of reminds me of how the Catholic interpretation of the 10 commandments eliminates the second one (No graven images) and to come up with a total of 10 (a handier number, don’t you think?) simply divides the last one “Thou Shalt Not Covet” into “Thou shalt not covet THIS” and “Thou shalt not covet “THAT.” 

    Simiarly, while I DO recognize that there are cultural differences as to WHO is abused that affect the ability to get free OR make it stop (where is the one entitled “Grants To Prevent Spiritualizing Violence Against Women”?) the main doorstopper to us getting free is basically two-fold:

    • Social acceptance of it
    • Economic benefits from it.

    You can’t DOMESTICATE an abuser.  He or she is not a dog; he or she has confused a person (or more than one person) with a dog.

    Now I think at some level, we are going to have to admit that certain branches of our government have confused certain sectors of our society now, as historically, with dogs requiring obedience training, as well as for manual labor and (at will) companionship.  Or for simply the thrill of watching them sit up and beg, roll over and play dead, or fight each other. 

    Is it really realistic to think we can train all of us out of all that privilege by simply paying more?

    How much MORE realistic to stop your neighbor from beating his wife or daughter BEFORE it becomes habit-forming and addictive?
