If you were to travel back in time to the mid-20th century, you would notice a lot of key differences from the way life is lived today. You might note the lack of cellphones and computers; you might be surprised by the number of newspapers being read and friendly conversations in the streets. You might notice a distinctly segregated way of life with regards to race. Or it might even just be the clothes people wear that give you the most pause.

Whatever you might notice, the 1950s were very different from where we are currently in 2019. Even so, those years of long ago are still heralded as the “good old days” for whatever nostalgic reason people may find. However, it is the expectation of the family dynamic of those times that causes some of the greatest polarization among citizens in America today. A Polarization of Family Values - Talia Stotts

Peripatetic Alterity: A Philosophical Treatise on the Spectrum of Being: Romantics and Pragmatists

By Angelika Friedrich, Yuri Smirnov and Henry Whittlesey

This book is intended to raise awareness of our perception and hopes to show how an alteration of it can reduce domestic and international social tension and improve the lives of every individual.

To understand the worldview described in this treatise, it is necessary to create a construct that allows for distinctions to be made between different types of people, with each type being endowed with certain beautiful, advantageous characteristics that are largely exclusive to that type. Neither of these types or their various gradations may be based on nationality, ethnicity, class, gender, sexual identity, political party, religious affiliation, or other traditional categories preserving the status quo of widespread frustration.

The foundation for these archetypes was laid through experience in America, Germany and Russia, as well as extensive exposure to both rural and urban life in these countries and close relations with diverse ethnic groups in them. Before it is possible to grasp the bias in our perception, we must understand the characteristics of these two opposite (but not opposing) groups.

These archetypes are referred to as pragmatists and romantics.

Once the defining characteristics of these two types have been conceptualized, we gain access to the structure underlying our perception and can see how it is shaped by pragmatists.

While there is nothing particularly wrong with pragmatists, there is something wrong with a world or society dominated by one group at the expense of the other. Worse than domination, the values of this one group have become so intertwined with our way of thinking that it leads to feelings of inferiority, anger, dissatisfaction or even more negative states when someone deviate from them (by nature, circumstance or choice). It does not and should not have to be that way.

As we show in this book, the alternative of romanticism is a beautiful option that offers romantics experiences and sides of life never known to pragmatists.

Finally, to prevent this knowledge from being restricted to the academic and intellectual sphere, it is necessary for a respected and influential field to assume responsibility for expanding our understanding of the essential equality between romantics and pragmatists. At the same time, the public must replace their sources of knowledge with work in the field spearheading this movement. That field is literary fiction and its readers.

It all starts with understanding…

The LGBTIQ community in Croatia became visible, in an informal self-organizing sense, during the 1980s. Along with Slovenia, this made it one of the first countries with LGBTIQ activism in the Balkans region. The legal position of LGBTIQ people in Croatia changed several years before the official activist initiatives, after changes to the constitution were adopted as part of the judicial reforms and the transference of power from the federal level to the republic level. These reforms, which took place in 1974, amended the federal penal code, and by doing so, regulated the decriminalization of same sex relations.Polarizing LGBTIQ Life - Stevan Milivojevic

While it is true that many positive aspects of our country can be highlighted, when we dig deeper into the reality that is lived day by day, we can see that the differences and the present struggles people have are quite serious. The differences are very noticeable. Visiting one part of the country and seeing the luxury that surrounds it is impressive, but it is sad to go to one of the poorest neighborhoods and witness the little access they have to basic services that every citizen should enjoy. Here we begin to see a part that many people have little or no knowledge of.

Fragmento:

An individual born into a family has a set of rules that are instilled in them regarding how to trace their family roots. No matter where you find yourself, even if born out of the country, you automatically become a member of your mom’s or dad’s family according to the familial system of your tribe. Ethnic groups differ in the type of familial systems practiced, with most being matrilineal or patrilineal. These systems entail complexities and bonds first to an ethnic group, then to the family of the parents and then to that of the nuclear family. In my society, the extended family system is so influential that it has more power over the body and property of a dead individual than the nuclear family. The extended family is said to own the individual.

Comparing the family unit in the West to that of my cultural setting reveals a vast difference. In the West, America in this case, the family usually consists of the nuclear one. Apart from a few minority groups, most individuals are brought up with no sense of an extended family, and systems do not help with that either. Imagine the shock I got the first time I heard that a child could come from a different state than that of their mom or dad. “Really? You do not live where you were born?” I wondered, thinking about how this gave an individual no reason to trace the roots of either of their parents. Over time, the links to these family members from other states will weaken and break off, leaving generations after that individual with no idea of who they might actually be related to in other states.

Klišee. But this thought haunts me night after night. Sometimes I wish I believed in god, so I could also believe in some sort of an afterworld, where I could start all over again. But as the studies say, Estonia is one of the least religious countries of all. And at least in this sense, I am a prime example of a typical Estonian, whether I like it or not.

I’m not saying I’ve had a hard life. We were poor for the first three years or so; the Soviet occupation had just ended, making for a newly independent state of theoretically infinite possibilities, but a whole lot of confusion in practice. Fresh out of university, my parents were desperate for jobs. And whatever they got, they worked hard at it. Overtime, weekend work – anything to get by.
