The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.”   —   Gloria Steinem

(Okay.  We all know what she is talking about here.  But, besides the long held notions and biases about the sexes, I wonder if she also considered what the communists attempted to do when it came to religion.  They wanted all the people to be loyal only to the state, so they banned all religion.  They may have succeeded with many, but nowhere’s near enough for them to consider it a true success.  That’s because it so hard to unlearn what has been ingrained over countless generations.  People feel very secure in their traditions.  They don’t want to give it up just because they are told to, even when told of the logic and benefits of doing so.  It’s a form of cognitive dissonance.  Just like the people who want to believe that their government only does good, and that the system works just like the “Founding Fathers” designed it.  Various forms of racism have been completely acceptable for thousands of years, as have anti-Semitism and other hatreds of various religions.  Thankfully, for much of the world at least, these ideologies are shunned by mainstream thinking, and it’s more the fringe groups that embrace the ideologies of superiority, and/or the hatred of others.  But, like so many things, it is handed down – learned – behavior and beliefs.  Unlearning is so much harder than learning, but it is something that we all need to do to make the world a more just place to live.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
