Of course, there is the seemingly eternal debate about blank slates with respect to people; that is, can we imprint onto a young person a fully formed way of thinking/operating, one to our liking? This question is of supposedly great interest to Feminists (and lefties in general), as this is what they would really want to be able do.
Let us consider some recent recent anecdotal evidence. The Star Wars show, The Mandalorian recently had its Season Two finale.

“The only people who don’t need Luke back are the ideologically driven nut jobs who tried to fundamentally change Star Wars and the millennia old concept of the hero’s journey”
Let us consider the hero’s journey. What is it? The hero struggles, he journeys, he has setbacks, he eventually overcomes. None of the Star Wars sequel characters comes close to fitting this description. But Luke Skywalker? Well, yes. You saw the results.
So what does any of this have to do with anything? It does seem that there is something inside people, a pre-dispostion if you will, to look favorably upon heros’s journey stories such as Luke Skywalker’s. If there is a pre-dispostion here, probably there are pre-dipsositions elsewhere. Perhaps there are even pre-dispostions that are separate for guys and gals. And maybe even, fighting those pre-dispositions is an uphill battle. What might this suggest about a blank slate?
