I am just going to share my perspective on the topics I feel I can have an “opinion on”.
Abortion: Carol Gilligan did not do some research on this, with the selfish, conventional and post-conventional stages. The yes, no, yes pattern. About the question of abortion overall with regards to where do rights start. I personally believe… that pro-life and pro-choice are most likely integrated into the post-conventional stage, since the child needs are perceived in a more relativistic way, seeing that there are many choices the women could take in order to create a wholesome life for the baby… for example -> finding a good career first, or marring a partner which can financially care, living circumstances do I want to bear a child into this area… etc. Basically, she would choose a pro-life choice since she considers life in general of her child and is also pro-choice carries out her ideas, how she wants to raise the child etc. So, she has a choice IMO !!! Instead of having conventional ideas about pro-life and pro-choice saying that even if she is technically pro-choice she can’t because she is influenced by the norm of the culture. So, she has to be pro-life that is her choice then. A selfish stage is most likely a conditioned animal or rather… a demon who can not even conceive the idea of relating to the child in a non-egotistical way, she must always think she is right etc. And then being driven by the moral majority aligns her “red” values or magical? … To green/orange depending on city/culture (Imo city is important) and then expresses these values in a red fashion, for instance saying yes because. Yes, she can. While only caring about herself. So, she has a right, imo. Yet, that is like giving a stage red prisoner male who has not integrated stage red or archaic? A right to act out his aggression of course he has that, but how can one be sure that he does not hurt people ? There is no gurantee it’s most likely going to happen if there is the wrong environment etc, as long as there is not some sort of … brain damage which influences his behaviour, some health problem/issue.
Islam: I don’t know much about Islam I heard the Audiobook Spiral Dynamics by Don Beck and he helped in some regions to fight terrorism? I know he helped Mandela to fight apartheid, but no idea how etc. I live in Germany, so I see a lot of Muslims that want to have the right to practice their religion. Obviously, in any religion, there is a tendency to idealize a doctrine, idea, ideology, way of practice, living etc. I just finished watching the documentary of OSHO on Netflix in case you are interested, I can recommend that on how ideology is formed or guru worshipping rather since the topic… is more nuanced than that. Anyway, a lot of Muslims are peaceful as long as they are stage blue and they move quickly into stage orange where the religion overall, tends to fade off or receives a new impetus at stage green and a dialog is possible in a non-rational way IMO! I mostly believe that it is the world that is unable to create a structure for each nation in order to grow at least to a capitalistic society. (That is currently my notion of things, I rarely watch the news it triggers me even green news trigger me because it moves so quickly into blue sometimes it’s odd…)
Cultural Appropriation: **Most likely I can’t tell I talked about this with a friend who studies political science and sociology at the cultural epitome of the '60s as Ken has talked about with the student’s protests etc. ( I do not know a lot about history just “big” chunks of concepts). Anyway, we argued and she explained that not knowing the meaning of a symbol or the tradition of culture and for instance wearing native American clothes to a Halloween festival “is” cultural appropriation since one does not know if he offends anyone or she and abuses culture for his or her own benefit.
For example, rap music, or Jazz and whatever which has been “historically” an expression of oppression of black human beings? Now a white human being becomes a rapper and offends black culture, so potentially, he is monetizing a thing that originated from black culture and therefore robs, money from their culture.** Potentially, I think it would be fair to have a higher price for the item let’s say on the market and at best not to sell out the procedure for some cultural artifact let’s say a secret recipe to make tea. Otherwise now, I admit I re-read the Wikipedia entry while writing this, that it is helpful to foster a cultural appropriation a mixture of culture, at best perserving some original form of it. For instance, I love Korean hip-hop/rap or pop, because of the language and the "phonetic " sound and it has a hard tone, sounds sophisticated ( as a German native speaker…) and not to cute… which in my humble opinion Chinese does sound and I lived there for 6 months…
Issues in the Black Community: I am bi-racial I’ve never been to the U.S to say that FIRST! Still, I am mixed/black/Afro-American some concepts with a historical or cultural connotation, I’ve read a bit and watched a video from a Harvard professor about this on youtube. But, W.E.B Du Bois was one of the first black people? To study at all and he studied social science and since he was Afro-American / black fully he was able to interview a lot of people at the ghettos they had to house in and was able to conduct a study, what the actual study was about I don’t know, what he found out I know though through Wikipedia that even though equality or the basic rights have been integrated into the culture after the industrial revolution, to have the right to access the same kind of workplaces in mines I imagine, for example, they were unable to access housing, receive titles etc. So, they had an economic parity, but a psychological and sociological disparity because the people who worked there white people from France, Portugal, Spain Germany, IDC when the first settlers came to America, wanted to one-up “black people” and were given titles of honor and received more payment in order to show they are still second class, but somehow free, so access to new jobs etc was difficult since they hired mostly people who were qualified and “accidentally” all of the good schools etc were inside white communities and therefore there was a structural disadvantage. Because of the disparity psychologically and “sociologically” because white people had better titles, more access to wealth through better schools and education and also earned more while oppressing the beforehand oppressed. I will leave it at that since, there was also some strategy how real-estate people snuggled in black people in order to destroy the “economic” value of a region because the region would then be lower class ?
Race and IQ: This pissed me off for some time, because of popular culture see porn and being a young male, which somehow screams dork sometimes, or testing my intellectual niveau. I know this is prevalent any were but feels like shit when you are in another country and the idea about your skin color or nation is completely different then let’s say from an Asian country with lighter skin. I did not finish the book which explained something about genes, so I searched a bit online and obviously watched the JP videos and they were talking about how a Jewish minority has a consistent IQ score of 115. Or smth like that. I never did a real iq test. Online yes, but they are garbage mostly there are some which are better. Also, for instance, I’ve read an article stating that black males have a higher androgen level than whites for 10% and 200 million more active neurons even in countries which are underdeveloped. I know about the book the bell curve and some might say it is outdated, JP would argue me to death or uplift me in some chaos and order way. Overall he also said the 99% percentile of wealth or smth like that generally has an higher IQ, meaning that wealth can contribute, yet only the highest percentiles. IQ is important as well as conscientiousness for predicting academic success or professional success. So, it is a factor one can’t deny. But, valuing it too much just drives for more performance and performance and excellence etc. Imo the bad side.
Prostitution, drugs and sex robots that look like children: I just read that the first sex doll brothel has opened its doors in Europe, can’t tell prostitution is legal here. Some women might prostitute themselves because of life circumstances, fetishes etc. Never really read anything about this ( besides feminism), but I rarely see somebody complain about it. But, the sex slave trading market is there. So, potential repercussions could be some sort of groping in public? Or sexual harassment at home by the parents… for instance, one friend of mine his girlfriend works at the hospital and there was a young father who took… his finger and tested the young girls’ genitals. Can’t really express this normally. I did not see it, but maybe some shit like this could occur, when it is not done in some healthy manner, this is just the worst case idea.
Death penalty: I always thought the freedom to kill oneself could be a choice a fundemntal right in the sense it is legal. I don’t know. Maybe not.
Political correctness: Some “trigger practice” can work quite well, if someone does shadow work (I only tried the 3-2-1 process) and otherwise sometimes it is so much, it evokes the sense of superiority and social class etc. Being part of a majority etc. It is still possible and important to maintain it but, for me tbh. It feels like this as I moved up the stages your use of language automatically changes, even if there is no “real” effort evolved in changing the skill. Like becoming an adult / young adult or reaching adolescence and saying the word egalitarian for the first time or oppression and systemic etc. So, it is important and not and is filtered out with higher stages but kept there in lower stages as long as one is not horizontally further devloped, so going more into the stage.
Transgender, Vegan/animal rights / Gun control / affimative action. Would enjoy your opinion on this as some things to contemplate about.
