Thread Name: Do Americans know?
Subject: RE: Do Americans know?
Grey Wolf,

There are a large number of people active in the following community who do understand these feelings, many of whom are Americans.

http://www.rc.org/

And if you look there under Theory/A Modern Philosophy, the following topics will provide the general perspective from which they view the issue you raised.

Human nature
Intelligence
Distress
Irrationality
Recovery
Reality
Feelings
Freedom
Communication
Learning
Relationships
Leadership
Theory/Policy
Organization
Societies
Oppression
Liberation
Change

BTW I do see how this is music related-- first Mudcat is itself a cross-cultural community and I make the assumption even to be here that people here share a commonality of music that allows many other topics to be discussed which then feed back into the muusical commonality.

Second, as a cross-cultural community, it makes sense that performers of cross-cultural music for cross-cultural audiences would be interested in cultural issues that would affect how music is written, chosen, performed, received, and managed.
