    Ranger Rick’s comment is disturbing but maybe true. Still, in the back of my mind I’m thinking that if people–children–were raised right, we’d be able to resolve conflict and flourish in life without violence. Seems to me that the ability to channel anger and aggression in constructive ways can be taught and learned very early in life, and if it’s not, then a child may grow up knowing only the destructive aspects of anger and aggression. One of the best tools in life is the ability to make amends.

    Susan, many thanks for your continuing efforts for peace, happiness and harmony between the sexes. It is a real service. Would like to comment on Ranger Rick’s observations: He has a point, as human history has informed us. We homo sapiens have become the most violent and destructive life form on this planet and it will eventually lead to species extinction. The nuclear bombs have yet to go off in the Midast (and elsewhere) and the biological and biochemical weapons of mass destruction that did not exist in Iraq to justify Bush’s War which is a continuation of Perpetual War For Perpetual Peace, title of a book by Gore Vidal–a must read. The war in Iraq is a religious war between Sunnis and Shites which is centuries old and not a civil war offered by the social-political commentators.Ranger Rick’s comments on the weakness of sensualists and the strength of pain that builds strong moral character is reflected in my questionnaire study on the reciprocal relationship between moral values of pain and pleasure at: http://www.violence.de/prescott/bulletin/article.html Table 5.These basic moral values are deeply buried in brain structure and function that cannot be easily undone, as our two cultural brains attest, which has been building for over two millennia. The ultimate question is what kind of human society does one want to live in? A society plagued by violence and sexual exploitation or a society of peace, harmony and egalitarianism? The choice is ours, or do we have a choice anymore?Peace,Jim Prescotthttp://www.violence.dehttp://www.ttfuture.org/Prescotthttp://www.montagunocircpetition.org

    Two incredibly intelligent sane eye-openers by Dr. Prescott. This guy is onto something. But Ranger Rick here is a perfect example of why this stuff – though it could save our lives and th e planet – is damn difficult to teach. But you gotta try, huh? Thanks, Susan, for putting it out here to your audience. Now I can understand better where you’re coming from with your whole “pleasure principle” – it’s not just about having sex, it’s about saving the f-ing planet!

    What you’ve got here is a recipe for a weak society, one that will get mowed down by whatever bully happens to be in the neighborhood. You’re livin in a dream world if you think this kind of lovydovy society will work anywhere except some remote outpostt. Tht’s why those sex monkeys stay up in their trees. Aggressive disciplined people take advantage of weaks sensualists, and why not?

    Dear Dr.,What a great piece by Dr. Prescott. I really enjoyed it and it is indeed uplifting. It also helps my English to read articles like this. Pleasure is good, this I know. Piacere in Italian.I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying your new Bloggamy. Full of twist and turn through life, seriouse, then sexy, then funny.What’s with these religious American Republicans, they all seem angry, at constant war. Not enough pleasure, eh, Dr. Prescott?By the way I just re-read your Travels with Max piece (again) where you wrote about Portofino and I realized that you have been to the Colombo bar. Some of the best ice cream in the world. I’m going to get a coffee down in the village now, will talk to you later.And once again thanks for introducing me to Dr. Prescott.Tanti Baci, Carlo

    While reading Dr. Prescott’s article and Dr. Suzy’s comment I could not help but think of the Bee. It will not sting you if you give it love and remain calm. Start swating around and it will surely sting you. Also you would be deprived of the wonderful honey it makes.

    What inspiring work. It gives me hope for this mean miserable bunch of humans we seem to be. Just read the recent piece, and I’m going to read the older one now, but I wanted to say thank you for exposing your readers to this.
