52. I believe that the dysfunctional family parallel is a good part of the picture
But I believe that there is also another important part. I believe that many of those involved in insisting that these topics be unmentionable are what FDR called the economic royalists -- those people whose vast wealth and power depends upon maintaining the status quo. whereas much of the dysfunction in dysfunctional families takes place at the subconscious level, I believe that the economic royalists know very well what they're doing for the most part, and they have a very conscious understanding that maintaining the status quo is necessary for their continued position at the top. Anyhow, that's the way I see it.
