“Outdated Notions/Ideas” is another one of those slogans that gets tossed around frequently but that have no actual concept in support of it.
Human institutions, for example, do not come and go like hair fashions. They are foundational and fundamental because they are natural and thus not subjective to personal or group taste.
Or consider the five fundamentals of human existence: Sleeping, Breeding, Eating, Shitting and Death.
Are any of them outdated? Can you toss aside one of them as out of touch with the world today?
No, of course not.
They are a gravity of reality and you are subject to their pull whether you like it or not.
The fundamental reality of life does not wax or wane based on the whims of a person or persons finite lifespan.
Government, Family, Marriage, County, Race, Gender, etc. are absolute and unchanging because mankind is absolute and unchanging. There is no human progress. Again, the Five Fundamentals are the same today as they were 5,000 years ago. No progress, no change. They are exactly the same. They always will be.
So when someone tells you the fundamentals of existence are subject to change or progress you know you’re talking to either a con-man or a delusional man.
Unfortunately the world is full of both. And they have a tendency to seek power and influence.
