New Book Turns Spotlight on Why Cultural TurmoilCrippling America
Cultural failures that are now crippling the United Statesand are responsible for most of the turmoil and violence plaguing other countries around the world arethe result of the influence of male dominance and irrational religious dogma, saysauthor Boye Lafayette De Mente.In a new book,
CULTURAL FAILURES THAT ARE DESTROYING THE AMERICAN DREAM!:
The Destructive Influence of Male Dominance & Religious Dogma,
DeMente, says that most of the negative elements in all of the areas of civilization from economics and politics to social behaviorcan be traced to the male lust for power, male dominance, and irrational religious ideology.Known for his books on the cultures of China, Japan, Korea and Mexico, DeMente says that males are genetically programmed to exercise as much control aspossibleparticularly over femalesto be tribal and territorial, and to useintimidation and force to get what they want.De Mente goes on to say that ancient males sought to attribute the existence of human beings and other life forms to spirits or gods, and created religions that gavethem dominion over both females and the world at large.“However, instead of curbing the destructive and violent instincts of malesthese man-made religions institutionalized and ritualized both ignorance andwillful stupidity, resulting in the failure of mankind to create and sustain positive,humanistic, nurturing cultures,” he adds.
