'Shame Interrupted' And A Next Layer Of Social Order

 The shamed do not get to speak.  The guilty get their day in court.  What helps here is ERH's comment that in earlier social orders, women and children did not speak, that is, contribute (my words) to making the imperative.  They talked, but their talk was not speech, speech being important words, imperatives, making the future, as witness Bledoe's saying 'Without the imperative there is no future'.  As opposed to these two alternatives, speech and talk, I have made, in psalmodic response, as in God's image, The Symphony Of CHI--Comprehensive History Interactive[, with which you have been helpful, though I did a couple at work and several with Dan Spencer earlier.]  One could call it 'With New Ears'. I claim that this is to the earth beneath, people made of dirt, as liturgy is to The Heavens Above, and the scientific method is to The Waters Under The Earth. Words, Names, Numbers.

It is in response to ERH’s statements in Universal History 1954 that our task in the next era, the next thousand years—however long that is—is to glorify the neo-tribal social order by keeping small, enthusiastic groups, while getting rid of the perpetual warfare of the tribes, as Israel was glorified in the Church by getting rid of exclusion (Gentiles), and the Empire was glorified by getting rid of slavery, in the nation-state.

JBJ has better work in the wonderfully short and concise booklet ‘Crisis, Opportunity, and the Christian Future’.

With this you get several audios of complete Universal History courses from Dartmouth, and transcripts of ALL Rosenstock-Huessy’s lectures in English.
