    Look...some of those Bonobo girls are pretty cute and they are all very adept at diverse sexual positions and arrangements (think menage de 14). Also - they were/are available!!!! What happens in the jungle stays in the jungle - right? Any storm in a port and all that......

    The liberal mind has been conditioned to see the world through the eyes of racism and sexism. This makes critical thinking, very difficult, since the conditioned prism creates its own reality for them. I will be glad when Trump gets rid of the Department of Education, so another generation of young people are not rendered biased, with rose colored glass, and unable to think beyond the prism.

    The story of Tarzan is about a boy, from an intellectual and advanced culture; England, being in the unique situation where he is raised in the jungle and develops keen natural instincts, directly from the animals. Instead of being culturally cloned in an advanced culture, his circumstances bring him back to his common roots with all cultures; animal man. His status as the king of the jungle is not just due to his developed natural instincts, but is also connected to his intellectual cultural roots; best of two different worlds combined into one man.

    Tribal culture is useful for creating a connection to one's natural roots; one big family. But tribal culture is not designed to deal with large populations of different people. If a modern large culture became tribal, it would break up into separate tribes. To keep these all factions together; empire, it takes a different type of culture. But this culture often causes one to leave their natural roots; loss of the natural family. Tarzan was a unique intellectual scenario, where the best of both worlds meet and combine into one person.

    One could do a reverse Tarzan story, where a black tribal child, is raised in London. He is cultured in music, art, sports, science and goes to the finest schools. He is met with all types of challenges, with him making use of its intellect and his instinctive tribal roots, to get the best of one sided unnatural man.

    It is not racist, as much as shows how difference races tend to specialize, and that the hero integrates the best of all. Everyone would cheer because the composite hero is a step higher.
