The every day matters as much as the worst-case scenarios.
Native Americans…if it wasn’t for the invaders and their diseases ie addictions, children and women would still be safe in America. There are role models if we dare. I’ve attempted to expose systemic pedophilia in schools, doctors, attorneys, entertainment et al.
“ These harms are so common that their impact is often seen as just how people are, yet when we compare those raised in the systems to traditional indigenous communities raised outside these systems, the problems become apparent. ” —> my default working assumption is that literally every human culture systemically rapes / abuses children throughout all of history. Do you have an example of one that doesn’t? How would you KNOW whether another culture truly doesn’t abuse the children that it has access to? You certainly can’t just go off the culture’s reports. I’m genuinely curious if you’re thinking of a concrete culture here because it would be a rare and precious example of how to do things right if it existed.
