The Mother State

Being inherently curious and adventurous gives most of us the propensity to get into all sorts of trouble. Foolish things such as burning our fingers in the fire place, playing in the street and in time even more excellent adventures such as driving fast, borrowing dad's guns, drinking whiskey and encouraging dogs to chase and bite. This, of course, is the reason why we have mothers. And why, as we get older, we seek a bit of distance, to get out with the guys and do these guy things. This is in turn why the adults – mothers, fathers, teachers, uncles, priests, politicians – create laws and empower cops as a sort of super mother brigade to keep us in line.

When the cop shows up to stop our fun we think to ourselves "Why that mother…." We are smart enough to see what is going on, who the cop really is, just the long reach of mother. The cop is the ultimate male stereotype, but this is wrong, entirely backwards; the cop is really the agent for all of the mothers, grandmothers and great grandmothers of history, the ultimate sum of feminine power.
