    Women are like wolves. If you want a wolf, you have to trap it. Snare it. Then to keep it happy, you have to tame it. Feed it, care for it. Lovingly. The way an animal deserves to be loved. And my animal deserves a lot of loving.

    Women...and farm animals.

    “As a farmer I know that when an animal is sick sometimes the right thing to do is put it out of its misery. With the electricity we are using to keep Meredith alive, we could power a small fan for two days. You tell me what’s unethical.”

    My dad does that too, because "it's cheaper" but like who cares about saving money if you're dying in misery

    Typical. Winter you get used to cold and summer you are used to heat. We are more at 77-78 in summer and 72 in winter. I hate cold and clothes. So whatever it takes to wear shorts and a tank around the house.
    Take what I say with a grain of salt, because that's all it is compared to the ocean of complexity when it comes to actions and real life.

There is no love in this. It is love that often overrides those distinctions of culture and ethnicity that you prefer to see maintained. If you place "true love" first, then everything else must be secondary.
    Actually, the concept of marriage for the purpose of love has been with us since the time of Shakespeare and became particularly strong in the early 19th century (the "Romantic Period"). Read novels, listen to art songs and operas from that time. With this in mind, I don't believe that women were depressed until feminism "liberated" them.

    Two true modern inventions are the divorce of love from marriage, and probably more importantly, the divorce of sex from love.

    By the way, I don't mean to say "old is good, new is bad" because that would obviously be a mistake. I would much rather live today than even 25 years ago, in spite of the troubles we're staring down. What frustrates me is a popular narrative where history proceeds irreversibly in a directional manner, from narrow-minded oppression to enlightened tolerance. People seem to think that values evolve like technology.

    The concept of rags-to-riches has been with us for ages as well, but does not describe the lot of the average person any more than marriage for love did until relatively recently. I do believe couples often did come to love each other, truly and deeply, brought about by growing together through life's experiences. Sort of like this:

    The first time I met you was on our wedding day
    I was scared - I was shy - I was nervous - So was I
    But my father and my mother said we'd learn to love each other





    And this is only western society. In many other parts of the world, arranged marriage based on family needs/alliances was the norm. In some places, it still is. This leaves a minority of the world's population marrying for love, probably until the 20th century. I'm not saying whether that is good or bad, simply that it is.
    A cry of defiance, and not of fear,
    A voice in the darkness, a knock at the door, and a word that shall echo for evermore!
    For, borne on the night-wind of the Past, through all our history, to the last,
    In the hour of darkness and peril and need, the people will waken and listen to hear

    -- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
