Real Wealth of Nations: Creating a Caring Economics,
says; "When children are taught the “normality” of
domination and submission - and society doesn't offer alternatives - they
often learn to go into denial and inhibit their capacity for empathy and
consciousness,. They then build family, educational, religious, economic,
and political institutions based on the these principles when they grow up.
And so the cycle repeats itself generation after generation." "Ridged
top-down rankings, weather family or state, are artificial barriers to
trust, empathy, and caring."
