    When we are forced to follow the mores of our inherited culture, we are artificially constrained. When our mind finally breaks free, all the world is its home.

    We have inherited a rich and creative culture. So our first duty is to come to know our culture, so we can make a creative contribution.

    Just who is "we"? Not everyone comes from a western European background.

    'We' is anyone who belongs to Western Civilization.

    Perhaps the saddest are those who live in the West but are culturally impoverished.

    Even sadder are those who live in the West, and think that is all that there is.

    Maybe he was calling you a Karen Horney schoolgirl? That's not such a bad thing to be.

    On a sidenote, that's always struck me as odd. In America, propaganda is clandestine or subliminal at best. While someone like Goebels was overt about it.. and even worked out of the "Office of Propaganda".

    Not that this has anything to do with the church btw. Just a thought.

    C'mon every one and their dog knows there are three civilizations extant today - the Chinese civilization, the Indian Civilization and the Western Civilization.

    I live in the West and our biggest trading partner is China and as I write we are forming a military alliance with India to secure the Indian ocean.

    My only complaint is that the Indians are beating us at cricket.

    Please! Please! Please! While the Germans had Goebels, the Americans have Edward Bernays, who wrote the book, "Propaganda", which has guided American propaganda ever since.
