Going to museums and reading older material is a reminder that each era has its own things to be strict about. In our time, we are very condemning of things that harm the body, whether it is done to us by others, or we do it to ourselves. In most eras preceding ours, it was consider far graver to do something that was harmful to the family. Likely, we believe that only the body is real now. Families and institutions are increasingly regarded as arbitrary constructions, perpetrators of hidden power relationships, and inherently temporary, to be disposed of so that others may have power instead.
