Re: [Sartre] Re: Sartre on Nationality and Sexuality
- I can't think of a society that did not seek to care for its children. And even if the Maori did not work as hard as those wonderful, stiff upper lip Brits, surely they did enough work to feed, house and transport themselves--they didn't just sit around and starve and allow their children to wither away, did they?----- Original Message -----From: Catherine OnellionSent: Sunday, May 27, 2001 6:47 PMTo: Sartre@yahoogroups.comSubject: Re: [Sartre] Re: Sartre on Nationality and Sexuality
protected, nor were they always educated. Hard work was not prized in
early polynesian societies (eg. the Maori) before they were colonised by
the British Empire. The things which you list below may 'seem' like they
are the norm but at one time or another, they were not. In the future,
they may become 'not the norm' again.
>What is it that is continually shifting across culture and time? Most
cultures at all
times adhere to the same norms. Piety, respect for authority, obedience
to the law,
respect for elders, care for children, the value of hard work, etc.
These were as
esteemed in all cultures of the ancient world as they are today.
