yes, but also digging into our several cultural pasts to repossess our own legacies that can present meaning and continuity to our lives. It's also important to say that there is an appropriate time and place to take stock of threats and come up with a strategy to counteract them, it's just that this should not be the core of our communion with one another.
As evolved humans we should be above beating each other with sticks, but alas...
So digging into our cultural pasts to repossess our own legacies: I'm not trying to be obtuse here, but could you give me an example? I seek to get my knowledge on (I say that ironically because I hate the whole "Get your ________ on" it's gotten out of hand.)
