Like I said -- today USA kills societies, babies, degrades the environment (much more than the hawaiians) are sexist, there's a growing diversion of the wealth, and the jusicial system favors the rich. So do you have any point Alice? the examples I listed of westerners are verifiable fact -- even to the point of eye witnesses. I love the way u demonize a culture when ya can't really be sure about the details of the accounts you may or may not be referencing-- or did jesus tell u. It's like you took it from the missonary handbook about how if you weren't western you were a savage. No wonder people mock u incessently on these discussions. I suppose you are going to tell me sexism doesn't exist today when I experienced it ALL the time. When has a woman been top dog in our society? As another poster said-- it's best to ignore you.

Hawaiians killed off the Marquesans who got here first. But they did enslave the survivors. Human sacrifice, infantidicede, enviornmental destruction, sexism, class tyranny, the lack of democratic protections...ummm no wonder Hawaiians suffered so horribly beforee the missionaries came to improve things.
The best democratic protection?..... Trojans. Don't leave home without them. Always carry some in your wallet or purse, or both for those having gender identity disorder.
