The Three Taboos

16Oct07

Has anyone ever wondered why sex, politics, and religion were taboo subjects in polite conversation? I mean, really, wondered.

In other countries where the democratic spirit is alive and well people talk about these subjects all day and every day with no apparent trouble what-so-ever (France, Canada, Germany, to name a few).

It just makes me wonder why American society, the land of the brave and the home of the free, has such an issue with discussing these topics in day to day conversation. After all, SPR (sex, politics, and religion) is very fascinating and if the root of democracy is the discussion of ideas – then why do people feel such discomfort talking about these things??

Is America, really, based on democratic ideals? Be honest.
