I remember when Mead was proven the fraud that she was. She not only made things up, she was also LIED TO , by the people she kept nagging to tell her about their sex lives, in the South Pacific . I am surprised, though, that he left out Boaz ... as he was Mead & Benedict's mentor.
I have been blasting away at Rousseau, myself, for many decades, and all of that " NOBLE SAVAGE " garbage. Having had to live through the stupid Hippy " BACK TO NATURE " and the elevation of the primative stuff, I can tell you that that IS exactly what led to the " diversty junk of today ... same crowd; just as WRONG today, as they were back then.
