“Since it is so likely that (children) will meet cruel enemies, let them at least have heard of brave knights and heroic courage. Otherwise you are making their destiny not brighter but darker.”C.S. Lewis--This is one of my favorite quotes. So beautiful.
Uncivilized vs. civilization. Random 6am thought: there are still now isolated pockets of no more than a few dozen people at most living days away from civilization with little or no modern technology. You don't see them having to worry about sex crimes, political scandals, pollution (yet), or obesity and body image issues. And yet Americans have the nerve to label these people "savages". I hate civilization.
