Sigmund Freud suggested that the human mind makes strange primitive sexual connections between basic instincts (i.e., man has sex with woman) and social rivalry (i.e., man is jealous of another man who has sex with woman).

This inner-conlict in the human mind which causes people to confuse otherwise natural feelings of availabe sex with resource availability calculation competitiveness suggests that Hollywood (USA) movies such as "Giant" (1956) are perhaps representative of imagination anxieties.

Are they printing movie posters on hemp/recycled paper yet?

God bless!
