    might be interesting to start a thread on the correlation between education and having a sense of humour ....

    This is the wrong thread for the topic, but you are correct. Prosperity, freedom, representation, abundant food, security and long life are all thoroughly abnormal, and can be maintained only through enormous, endless and expensive effort. Many people assert that they can only be maintained through the expenditure of blood, as well.

    And yes, given sufficient time, all manner of horrible things will recur: subjugation of women, genocide, slavery and so on.

    Militant Muslims fight to reestablish such things as we write. They have succeeded in a number of countries. No one should bet that given time they'll not do the same where we sit.

    Rome was a republic before it was an empire. Athens was a republic before it was a vassal state. Germany was a republic before it was a dictatorship. Despotism recurs because it is natural to us.

    This does not mean that we should surrender to our nature, it just means that that is our nature.

    By the way, you made a small error, probably syntactic.

    Democracy is wholly natural, if generally short lived. A riot is a democracy. A gang rape is a democracy. Sadly there is no compact term for "democratic republicanism," and because of Party names, the term itself leads to confusion.

    ok ... so in your mind, gang rape is democracy. I see why you have a problem with women being educated. they may challenge "natural" male democracies.

    Of course it's a democracy. The victim gets one vote, the rapists get the rest. Were you aware the the Founders were largely contemptuous of democracies? That's why we have a democratic republic. We have rule by the majority -- sort of. The expression of the public will is restricted, channeled forced to move a a sedate pace, and work through progressive levels of representation. And once expressed, it generally takes greater effort to gainsay in the future.

    In a democracy, slavery and the repression of unpopular minorities is guaranteed. In fact, in a true democracy, that word, "unpopular," is often lethal.

    he was pointing out that as an argument against democracy.

    Re: Do Degreed women have a harder time finding a Husband?

    Why do I feel like some people have yet to make it out of the 19th century?

    Take this source for what it is worth. It's late and just found it from a quick search. It is an editorial, and I do not claim any of it is necessarily accurate. if I get more time tomorrow I will fact check it. it bis however an interesting starting point: http://www.nytimes.com/2012/02/12/op...anted=all&_r=0

    The result has been a historic reversal of what the economist Elaina Rose calls the “success” penalty for educated women. By 2008, the percentage of college-educated white women ages 55 to 59 who had never been married was down to 9 percent, just 3 points higher than their counterparts without college degrees. And among women 35 to 39, there was no longer any difference in the percentage who were married.

    Re: Do Degreed women have a harder time finding a Husband?

    Since I cannot sleep, at least followed the clickthrough at my source: The Reversal of the College Marriage Gap | Pew Social & Demographic Trends

    There are gender differences associated with the reversal in the college marriage gap. Young women with college degrees are now just as likely as less-educated women to marry, and the timing of their marriages are increasingly similar. This was not the case in 1990. Back then, less-educated women were more likely to marry than were better-educated women, and they tended to do so at a younger age.
    and

    There is also a correlation between educational attainment and the likelihood of divorce. Newly available Census Bureau data show, for example, that in 2008, 2.9% of all married adults ages 35-39 who lacked a college diploma saw their first marriage end in divorce in the prior year, compared with just 1.6% of a comparably aged group that had a college education. There were similar gaps in divorce rates in 2008 among adults in other age groups. Unlike with marriage data, however, divorce data have not been collected by the Census Bureau in a way that permits comparisons over time in the divorce rates of those with and without a college degree.

    Re: Do Degreed women have a harder time finding a Husband?

    I guess career women pay penalties for rejecting offers while pursuing their careers. Based on two of few anecdotal evidence, these women are not yet married. After they score high with diploma's all the good men may have already be married leaving less for them. I knew 2 surgeons and a pharmacist that are still single.

    But why reject for careers I wonder? Why cannot it be a long term relationship (secure a mate) and be married after securing the titles. I do not see how us men have a problem with this approach.

    both redress and I have posted articles which refute these outdated theories.

    Of course, from personal experience you can pick out individuals that "prove" any theory you want to prove .... but when the representational value of these samples is countered by proper research, they just aren't relevant.
