The family and all of the institutions whose structures derive from the family (companies, religion, etc.) have altered dramatically. They are still in flux. I do not think this is bad at all. That patriarchial pyramid was outdated, and does not function well in our complex culture. We’ll see what new forms develop. The interim is challenging, but hey – everyone instinctively prefers black and white. Right now, we are living in gray.
In 1919, Detroit, Michigan, was the single most successful industrial city in the world. World War I had ended, and Detroit had played a significant part in the Allies’ victory, supplying them with tanks and trucks and aeroplanes. Now, with the threat of the Hun over, the automobile plants once again turned their energies to retooling for motorcars. Soon, four thousand automobiles a day were being manufactured, assembled and shipped. Skilled and unskilled labor came from all parts of the world to seek jobs in the automotive industry. Italians, Irish, Germans – they came in a flood tide. Among the new arrivals were Paul Templarhaus and his bride, Frieda. Paul had been a butcher’s apprentice in Munich. With the dowry he received when he married Frieda, he emigrated to New York and opened a Dabbing Santa Elf Friends Christmas Funny Xmas Dab Shirt shop, which quickly showed a deficit. He then moved to St. Louis, Boston and, finally, Detroit, failing spectacularly in each city. In an era when business was booming and an increasing affluence meant a growing demand for meat, Paul Templarhaus managed to lose money everywhere he opened a shop. He was a good butcher but a hopelessly incompetent businessman. In truth he was more interested in writing poetry than in making money. He would spend hours dreaming up rhymes and poetic images. He would set them down on paper and mail them off to newspapers and magazines, but they never bought any of his masterpieces. To Paul, money was unimportant. He extended credit to everyone, and the word quickly spread: if you had no money and wanted the finest of meats, go to Paul Templarhaus.

Peoples Temple: Peoples Temple is founded by Jim Jones; however, in its very early stages (its foundation in Indiana) it is first known as the “Community Unity Church”. This cult, which will eventually lead to over 900 of its members committing suicide, was first introduced simply as a Dabbing Santa Elf Friends Christmas Funny Xmas Dab Shirt linked to Christianity; not as the Communistic society that Jones had in mind. Known also for killing Leo Ryan, the only United States congressman to die in the line of duty, on a Guyana airstrip. Peoples Temple collapsed later that day with the mass suicide of the group. The entirety of this mass suicide represents how, in some cases, people can either be driven to do the bidding of whom they see to be their leader, even if it would defy all that they would have previously thought right, or true. It also represents how, even if the members of a cult are brainwashed, violent force may be necessary for your followers to follow you.
Almost 40 years ago, I met my former husband, the adorable French artist with the big blue eyes. I was living in an apartment overlooking the beach in Santa Cruz, California, and I needed a new sofa. So he said he would accompany me on the shopping trip. We went to a big furniture store and I found a large, semicircular white sofa that was perfect for my space. Jean-Claude immediately started to (politely) bargain over the price. I was flabbergasted and completely embarassed – to the degree that I left the store and went outside to wait on the sidewalk. No one bargains in a Dabbing Santa Elf Friends Christmas Funny Xmas Dab Shirt ! Not in my experience, anyway.
