CAUTION: Warning people about behavior that can be fatal can be fatal to your career

The sheer, unmitigated irrationality of contemporary American mores staggers belief.

There is a scene in Robert Bolt's A Man for All Seasons in which Thomas More stops Richard Rich- who has just perjured himself at More's trial for treason against Henry VIII- and asks what the chain of office around Rich's neck signifies.
