I’ll have to read this again later to try and connect with the objective of the piece. I was hooked hard at trauma being passed on to your offspring and the rest was the sound of adults in a Snoopy cartoon.

This is a twist on the nature/nurture thing that goes beyond family line DNA in that life is not in a controlled lab. Is there a generic advantage in having parents/grandparents unscarred by serious trauma?

Was Nietzsche full of shit with the implicit trauma (didn’t kill you) making you stronger, and more disturbing making your children more fragile?

Retired and living my golden years in a world full of angry people.
