I’ve heard it said that our relationship with our mothers forms our interior psychology and our relationship with our fathers forms our psychology with respect to others in a social structure. It seems to me that a person who disrespects an imperfect father’s weakness and vulnerability will not be formed into a person who will respect imperfect people despite their weakness and vulnerability, especially those in authority. An inability to function within functional but imperfect social structures will naturally lead one to a kind of slavery because the person will not have the social skills to take the proper role within a given social hierarchy, let alone rise in it.
