After I broke out of the Matrix,
I saw, with astonishing clarity,
that the entire point of 'taboo'
in society, is simply and purely
One primary means of control, is
the threat of being ostracized
socially... of being banished, of
being seen as 'not as good as she
should be'... it is this threat, which
is so full of fear, which keeps people
in their boxes... with boundaries defined
thousands of years ago, and enforced by
pain, burning at the stake, torture, and death.
A taboo may be meaningless in reality, but
those who violate them, are red-flagged as
deviants; and those who wish to take a stand
'on the moral high ground' will speak and act
against taboo-breakers... the punishment is not
only inevitable, but mandatory as well...
We are seeing here, in this example, the nakedly
political nature of the popularity/power contests
which these lists are rife with. The one who speaks
out first and loudest against 'deviation' is the one who
is trying to attain the topmost position in this little society.
Nonetheless, we can expect that the 'enforcers' (agents!)
which appear among us, at the drop of a cue, will continue
to enact their robotic scripts of disapproval, punishment
and execution of 'deviants'. The gossip-train never stops!

politics is the method.
