In any bourgeois culture, ethics are such that any time anyone even raises suspicion, that person is out of order. The bourgeoisie demand conformity in behavior, even in thought. Contrary opinions are held, but the Status Quo wants unilaterality. This leads to the necessity of consensus. We can all disagree so long as we reach consensus in the end. This stress on conformity is hallmark of bourgeois life. I have not even begun to address the United States within a larger continuum of European bourgeois history. Aristocracies did not stress conformity, they insisted on obedience. The bourgeoisie demand obedience through conformity. Aristocracies do not need conformity. The very nature of an aristocracy negates the need or the possibility of conformity.
