I agree with Hermit that the hunter gatherer existence was the only natural adaptation to this world. That's pretty close to the way of life that Jean Liedloff observed. But I do think it would be possible to create better social arrangements within the techno-industrial system. Equality, freedom, solidarity, peace and enough leisure time to pursue meaningful activities would be possible if political measures were taken to prevent exploitation of the weak by the powerful. Mojo said it too. Legislation to restrict the working week to a maximum of 30 hours would result in more jobs and more leisure time for more people, and fewer people in need of welfare handouts. But those who were raised to be greedy and selfish will fight it. It won't happen if the majority of college-educated white collar fodder are defeatist. Politicians will only change their policies if a large proportion of the population kick up stink. Feelingful parents are already fighting the education system by taking up homeschooling. The big challenge is to encourage more people to do the same and lobby for changes in working arrangements as well.

Dennis, the counter-culture, anti-corporate and anti-war sites I've visited have too much reading material and too many links. I'd like to find some oustanding examples that I could recommend to people who need to be woken up, but most of the sites I've found wouldn't interest casual visitors. For example, I myself got bored with Naomi Klein's blog a long time ago. In the beginning there was user participation but she soon got flooded. Do you know of any sites with an easy-to-digest presentation of counter culture ideas?
I would like to find quotes from influential writers who are well known in today's world who present similar ideas. I can think of present day counter-culture writers who are saying the same as Jean Liedloff, but not many of them are well known to the public at large.On this forum I like to see a better understanding of the discoveries presented by Janov, Alice Miller, Ellie van Winkle and Jean Liedloff... Or anything else that connects to those discoveries.
