What is taboo? Why is it taboo? Where did taboo come from?
You are correct friend, people are scared of the powerful. The passion is intoxicating. But were it not for a trick of birth, the randomness of geography that which is taboo is normal and normal absurd. Like religion, if you are born in saudi arabia odds are you're a muslim and odds are you're a christian if your from Italy.
But it is not just fear of the powerful that stymies people, there is a fear of consequences. Yes you might have crazy angry power sex with that lithe girl as kinky as yourself, but you might end up divorced and never see your kids again if you do.
Still, whatever it is it can't be as bad for me as smoking.
