Peaceful Societies

You can call them "Segmentary Societies" like Emile Durkheim, "Regulated Anarchies" like Max Weber, "Peaceful Societies" like on the Website mentioned below or "Matriarchy", like German Scholars define it (not to confuse with Bachofen, goddess movement or FemDom). It all is the same kind of society with the same patterns.

I like the best definition of matriarchy as "nonviolent society". Is that precisely enough?
It is precise - think about it. If there is no violence at all, no physical violence, no violence in language, no violence to children (includes the violent education to obedience), no emotional violence by keeping back attention or tenderness, no violence to animals, humans or nature, no violence to oneself, like eating like crazy, abuse of drugs, alcohol ... and and and, you name it. Then there is matriarchal health. Precisely.

How many societies existed before Christ were matriarchal? I already know the natives of America had some tribes that were.
Does this extend beyond this present day country?"

!Kung boys and girls: Playing together -

We have to reconsider the interaction with our daughters and with our sons. Is how we treat them an applicable and humane way? Can we learn from "primitive" peoples?

!Kung girls and boys play together and share most games. Most cultures, including our own, consider some activities appropriate for girls and others for boys, and encourage the two sexes to play separately from an early age. Our derisive terms "tomboy" and "sissy" seem to have no counterparts in !Kung vocabulary.

The Golden Age

Excerpt: In Greek Legend there is a story of an ancient Golden Age where people lived in peace and prosperity. To quote: "The first age was an age of innocence and happiness." The whole concept of this myth is that everything has become slowly worse and worse for human kind since the Golden Age. Up until recently modern academics have rejected these legends as pure "myth".
