Just as a toss-in : Yes, Psychology slowly learns that a Trauma can *indeed* be passed on through generations - and even worse : It seemingly can affect your immune system ! - As seen in mice.
I even read in an article that it is probable that a Trauma can be passed on to following generations through the genes … At least with mice, too.
But it is still far too early to "definitively" say that. So far, everything is at a stage of "hints towards that …".

Another very interesting article I recently found presented the readers the theory of a social behaviour trying to protect people by avoiding anbything that could be dangerous to them : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Behavioral_immune_system
This is seemingly far to new to be widely recognized - but if this is true, then it is an … interesting observation on human behaviour.

Any intelligent fool can make things bigger, more complex, and more violent. It takes a touch of genius and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction. (E.F.Schumacher, Economist, Source)
