    Again, merely for your reading enjoyment (or irritation):



    Interesting? Insightful? Erroneous?

    I'd say that's dead accurate. Depending on which portions of the model an individual stresses, they can be more or less productive in an evolving society. Better, for example to act on a need for closure and clarity than to act on a need to maintain or re-impose anachronistic social structures.

    i just recalled this betrand russell quote:
    "The whole problem with the world is that fools and fanatics are always so
    certain of themselves, and wiser people so full of doubts."

    I agree. I think it's born of too many cop shows.
    Bad guy gets killed.
    Guy who did something wrong but is good at heart - killed redeaming himself.
    Good guy kills and gets a busty woman.

    There is no closure, only forgetting.
