z darius, that is a really interesting thought. I completely did not think about that, but your statement is completely true. My parents do not believe everything they hear and read and would always tell me that the news was propoganda, you know the old phrase "Believe none of what you read and half of what you see" (which I am not sure who originally said that in order to credit them), my parents would always tell me to take in information but to remember that you have to think about the goals of the person sharing it with you, what their personal goals may be may not be honest or to your benefit. Thank you!
delphiandomine, I posted my link instead of retyping the first of many observations I have made in regards to my personal experience, as it would take too long to retype it all, and because I just started that series so it will be an ongoing one, I would think it unfair & perhaps causing a bias if I first list all my observations. I am interested right now in hearing others rather than listing my own. :)
southern, may I ask if what you are saying indirectly that perhaps that family became more important (in the aspect of being "more human") and courtesy was much more a fact of social interaction? I am trying to fully understand your observation, could you clarify?
