It was I that had become offended in the end, without spite, you understand, but past bearing. I told him plainly that to want a woman formed in mind and body, mistress of herself, free in her choice, independent in her thoughts; to love her apparently for what she is and at the same time to demand from her the candour and the innocence that could be only a shocking pretence; to know her such as life had made her and at the same time to despise her secretly for every touch with which her life had fashioned her---that was neither generous nor high minded; it was positively frantic War and Remembrance in the Twentieth Century (Studies in the Social and Cultural History of Modern Warfare).

It is normative: the standard for judging values and behavior. 7. It is hidden -- not at all obvious to the dominating or oppressing practitioners, but often painfully, obvious to peoples whose cultures have been suppressed, oppressed or appropriated. White culture in the United States is complex. Because white supremacy is fundamental to the existence of this country, white supremacist culture is intertwined with other major cultural manifestations that make up the fabric of the U A Short History of Progress.

She crossed the street with a hole in her stocking. She had a hole in her stocking not because her uncle and aunt were poor (they had around them never less than eight thousand oranges, mostly in cases) but because she was then careless and untidy and totally unconscious of her personal appearance. She told me herself that she was not even conscious then of her personal existence The Mayflower and Her Log; July 15, 1620-May 6, 1621 - Volume 4. He had screamed himself out of breath, but Do a Rita muttering ``Too late, too late,'' got her hands away from my grip and shipping altogether out of her fur coat seized some garment lying on a chair near by (I think it was her skirt), with the intention of dressing herself, I imagine, and rushing out of the house.

If your culture is strong enough, you can put pressure on by capturing the hearts and minds of the citizens of the other civilizations of the world… so they’re going to have to consider switching to your ideology.” This is all part of what Firaxis senior producer Dennis Shirk describes as a push to empower the “peaceful builders” in Civilization V A Continental Shelf: Books across Europe from Ptolemy to Don Quixote.

Rising standards of living ended slavery, and nothing elevated it like industrialization did.� When slavery became uneconomical, people developed consciences, not the other way around.� Wealth is freedom, and has always been based on a society�s energy surplus .� The innate human desire for freedom became uneconomical to suppress when large energy surpluses existed. �Sla very began with domestication and ended with industrialization.� There was little �natural� about it, but in that phase of human economic development the institution made sense, if hideous sense. � The rise of science, industry, capitalism, and the Enlightenment cannot be effectively separated from Europe�s conquest of the world.� They were profoundly interrelated and began with the rise of Greek technology and teachings, but its ascent became steep when Europeans turned the global ocean into a low-energy transportation lane .� Europe�s incessant wars, with technological advances usually first devoted to warfare, made Europeans an irresistible force.� When they rode low-energy transportation lanes to distant lands, the rest of humanity never had a chance.� Europe raped and plundered humanity on an unprecedented scale, and as with Roman imperial ideology, there was little consideration shown to the world�s peoples, in practice or theory, by Europeans.� They ravaged humanity because they could.� The deep-seated connection between mercantilism and imperialism became evident with Spanish efforts.� Expeditions were privately financed with royal sanction, and the Crown got a cut of the loot.� The Spanish effort was far cruder than what its rivals and successors devised, and it eventually became capitalist in orientation. [792] � Forerunners to modern corporations were formed by the English and Dutch at the beginning of their imperial ascents, with trading companies.� The English East India Company, founded in 1600, and the Dutch East India Company, founded in 1602, were corporations acting on behalf of their sponsoring states, and were designed to wrest the spice trade from Portugal, along with seizing other imperial opportunities.� The French regularly bought up the rear, empire-wise, and did not charter their East India Company until 1664.� In the early 1800s, in the wake of classical economics, corporations became private enterprises and soon were granted limited shareholder liability, unlimited life, and even the rights of people .� Greed was not only enshrined in modern economic ideology as a virtue, but corporations are legally compelled to seek profits above all else History of the Fourth Crusade. She had passed through the Empire, she had lived through a siege, had rubbed shoulders with the Commune, had seen everything, no doubt, of what men are capable in the pursuit of their desires or in the extremity of their distress, for love, for money, and even for honour; and in her precarious connection with the very highest spheres she had kept her own honourability unscathed while she had lost all her prejudices Not Like Us: How Europeans Have Loved, Hated, And Transformed American Culture Since World War II.
