Side tangent, Jordan Peterson gives very good advice but often his reasoning is problematic. If you read his book, I am specifically referring to the chapter in raising kids. I agree 100% with him that children should not be allowed to behave in a way that will cause you to dislike them. However, to prove his point he compares raising children to overpowering indigenous peoples. He challenges the concept of "the noble savage" and cites a handful of indigenous cultures as being highly prone to homicide before the arrival of colonizing Christians. One of the incidents he included occurred in California in the 19th century, well after the brutal influence of missionaries. There is no numerical analysis of the actual proportion of indigenous cultures which were violent compared to those that were peaceful. He paints an incorrect picture where in a myriad of indigenous groups, the presence of any violent groups at all is given as a justification to overpower all of them.

His whole premise is that culture prevents humans from acting on their innate violent tendencies. And this is true.... when the culture is a good one. But this is a very sneaky way of legitimizing white supremacy while appearing to be addressing the virtues of good parenting.

Oops I guess I used the wrong term. I meant the bare roots for planting.

Anyone know a good source for elderberry root stock? Hoping to find Bob Gordon, Ranch, and Adams. About half a dozen of each, depending on cost. Thank you!!!
