There is a lot of hypocrisy in many shame societies AND shame cultures. It is very hard for any society to progress in any direction without making huge moral compromises for the sake of expediency. I once heard a woman say, “I don’t believe in violence, and anybody who does ought to be shot down like a dirty dog.” Garrison Kiellor once said about the Puritans, “They came to America so they could be more repressed than was lawful in England.” That characterization is more apt than many of us would like to think. I’ve sometimes wondered if “black lives matter” to other blacks. And I also wonder how many gays have knowingly transmitted the HIV virus. This whole business of guilt and shame is much more slippery than we like to think.
