What Jonathan Zimmerman Learned Living in Nepal for 2 Years

317 801 Ogledi

Taken from JRE #1643 w/Jonathan Zimmerman:

  • I mean, if we just dropped all laws tomorrow, all cultures all norms, across the entire planet....wouldn't human females and males revert to this exact same kinda thing? (I'm genuinely curious, not taking a moral stancc) Nature vs Nurture etc. Females value men who are strong, who have resources and get more. Men value good looks, minimal fat and given our druthers we pick younger rather than older insofar as what we find attractive. Again I'm not defending or criticizing any particular tradition. I'm just saying before we judge too harshly, isn't it possible, highly likely even, that were they to suddenly have the choice to be with whomever they wanted, the girls would pick slightly older guys with stuff and muscles and a mildly-specced C Class with leather seats? And us dudes would pick (ideally more than one, to our caveman brain lol) younger, fit, attractive girls that seem healthy? Someone worth giving up some of our resources, one survival instinct competing against the other? I'm not sure it just made me think of that, that while no one should be forced to do anything in an ideal world, we don't live in one of those and it just seems like this would still frequently happen

  • I've met many people who had arraigned marriages. I didn't find them to be any less satisfied or happy than people from America. I think since their expectations were very different, often their marriages were better than they expected and were satisfied and happy. One woman told me she didn't meet her husband until the day before the wedding. She said she was very disappointed because he was short and she always imagined a tall husband during her marriage fantasies. But she became very happy to be with him. He became a university professor and got a lot of money when he retired, they had a wonder house, and had build a very nice life and family together.

  • We are practicing cast system in a wrong way. Aa per bhagbat geeta - cast system has to be driven by work of the individuals for instance if i do a work which is related to giving knowledge or wisdom( i.e teacher) then im a brahmin, if im am involve in a servicing activities (i.e cops, army etc) then im a kshatrya. If im a businessman then im a vaishya and if i work on a salary or do a job then im a sudhra. Cast system is not permanent stamp. It has to driven by our work but people are giving priority to cast not there work. And sad reality is most of us didn’t know about the system.

  • Interesting. Dictating peoples lives and future destiny for the service of community not for the benifit of the individual human life expierance. These cast systems keep some people stuck by birth and others in higher status vs intrest and or merit. Marrying women off for the sexual pleasure of men and domestic servitude to his family without regard to her individual life. Basically a slave trade. What are the social and economic problems in the region? What is the down side of this social economic structure? What about quality of life? Life fulfillment?

    Friendly SpidermanFriendly SpidermanPred 3 dnevi
    • @Friendly Spiderman I’m not white, I was born in Nepal. For number 1 you are denying a lot of things about reality. Humans are animals and we do have instincts to mate as much as possible, that’s why the average marriage lasts 5 years when not artificially supported by strict cultural regulations. These people are not naturally happy in their marriage, they were born drilled into their heads that you should be monogamous and stuff because that made it easier for kings and the elites of the past to control people. Having people running around fucking anyone would be problematic, I’m not sure if this is even true for india though lol. People be ducking like rabbits there, but at least in western society that was the reason monogamous marriage in the way it exists was created. The caste system came about using the idea of reincarnation laid out by early indians. People who were of a “lower race” were perceived to have manifested as such by their souls after reincarnating because of bad karma. Rulers of India must have created a caste system from that idea to make the sheep easier to control, where each group of people had their own duty. They make peasants work while they live luxuriously fucking many concubines and fulfilling their desires. You are just another sheep if you actually believe this cultural indoctrination, mantras passed down to the sheep by a long dead ruler.

    • @Dead Pirate Roberts 1) People don't want leave after 5 years or 10 years. People are not animals. Family, marriage, education community and Gods are pillars of Hindu civilization. 2) There is no such thing as caste, you mor0n. It is only you white people who are fascinated with such terms. No such word is mentioned in any of Hindu scripture. Not even indirectly. We have *varnas* which operate more like clans and less like caste system that you people propagate about us. Hindu society has produced Kings from all "castes" in all eras unlike how only white Xtian male can be King in western world.

      Friendly SpidermanFriendly SpidermanPred 3 dnevi
    • Yeah right, by forcing marriages. People want to leave in 5 years because that’s human nature, forcing people to stay is not better either, they would not make the same choice if they had freedom. People should have the freedom to choose, I understand the “social stability” argument but that choice also has its downsides. Then there’s the caste system...

People were laughing and talking that difference in A1 and A2 milk is pseudo science but now it's proven that A2 milf from the humped cow is way more safer than A1 and countries like New Zealand have separate milk cartons with A2 milk. Unless and until someone comes out and disproves that cow urine from a humped cow having medical benefits then no one has the right to call it pseudo science. Even turmeric was pseudo science for the west until they tried to patent it. God the hypocrisy is unbelievable.
