From Iron John

Reading a great book by Robert Bly.

When the father, absent during the day, returns home at six, his children receive only his temperament, not his teaching. The fragmentation of decision making in corporate life, the massive effort that produces corporate willingness to destroy the environment for the sake of profit, the prudence, even cowardice, that one learns in bureaucracy – who wants to teach that? The father as a living force in the home disappeared when those forces demanding industry sent him on various railroads out of his various villages.
