Institutional inducements.

Mass shootings, government crackdowns.

They speak.

What They say is second only in importance to what They won’t say.

Same insight, different situations.

Pre-moderns repressed sexuality to stabilize their social formations. Post-moderns overproduce sexuality out of similar motivations.
