This section deals with what Society classes as ‘The Forbidden Topics’, the ones they talk about in hushed tones – not illegal by any standards of the game, but many a time morally and ethically unsound.
Have you noticed how Society will discuss many things openly from hard core violence to sexual preference, from politics to religion all the way to the extremes of alien life and yet – still there are topics they simply think and consider to be too sensitive?
There is a paragraph in the book Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett that made me think long and hard about certain topics …
“You take a bunch of people who don’t seem any different from you and me, but when you add them all together you get this sort of raving maniac with national borders and an anthem.”
I fail to understand at times how Society wishes to be seen as a caring environment, and yet still they insist on not wishing to discuss topics that NEED to be talked about. How else can we all tackle subjects if we don’t?
