New Europe Regional Message Board
A fairy tale deals in fantasy to illustrate a point. Melding fact with fiction is the realm of legend, memory, myth and history. The difference between them is all a matter of degree and subjectivity.
A social concept is extremely broad. Broadly speaking, the majority of recorded history it was primarily a military concept. Now it's equally broad in the "proper" subjectivity.
History, of any kind, are always a bit propagandist, because they instill basic values of the community by teaching children, at a very young age, what an all-good person would do, and say, and think.
I think that statement is equally true as yours.
I think so too, especially when the difference between history, myth, legend, memory et alii has only been made for a few centuries. Your statement is right on the mark, and as far as I can see: entirely compatible with mine.
The purpose of my statement was not to declare all ancient drama a fairy tale, but rather to indicate that ancient narratives, of any kind, serve to instill communal values in young and old. And that 'marriage' is one of those narratives (or part thereof), and that this marriage NARRATIVE is collectively held, not individually. That is why marriage, as communally understood, is a propagandist entity.
Pieuvre is # 22 in the world for drug use. That's... some good stuff you are smoking.
The question is not directed to a community but towards an individual.
In modern day, communally, the question doesn't embrace. The closest would be the Sumerian choice but it would have to read ..."ending in death".
The Sumerians gave the option of renewing the marriage every five years. No renewal meant dissolution of the marriage after 5, 10, 15, or 20 years. Only at the fifth renewal was the marriage continued until Death.
I believe this is a rare Easter Egg:
Aliens have landed in the fields of Wisentia and they wish to trade and have peace.
"Take us to your kneader!" says Yrrab iexela, alien lawyer. "We have heard wonders of Wisentia's pizza, and must have it. We are certain that a valuable trade route can be set up between our peoples. You could have our first born, for example." Your Secretary of Trade is shocked, "First Born?! That's slavery!" but quickly calms down upon discovery that their young are considered a great delicacy there. "You know, maybe we should open up trade with them?"
The Coalition of No ETs wants you to stay out of this. Wil Rifkin says "Them darn aliens thingies are going to take advantage of the situation an kill us all! You must ban all trade with them. If they want my cattle, it will be over my dead body!"
The Government Position
The government has yet to formalize a position on this issue. Any suggestions?
Aki-Archie asked me about that one. Thanks for posting it.
The Holy Blue Kraken of Aki Zeta is # 103 in the WORLD for long lifespans. Congratulations.
I have been swayed by the argument that while the trialogue defines what constitutes a marriage, it remains always a political act to actually recognise it. Even when that act is not made by the state, but only by a parent or a priest in defiance of or in the absence of politics.
