Just wondering....Take a 40 year old male ('cos he's an ex-elder!) who's been born a dub. He becomes disenchanted with dubdom and eventually decides to leave. Can that man ever reach the stage of being a balanced and mature individual?
Think about it. He's been denied an adolescence. No furtive gropings to further his sex education, no rebellions, no underground music, no college parties, in fact he's beginning to sound positively boring!
All his decision making has been done for him. His reading choices, his TV viewing have all been subject to a sanitising from Brooklyn. Even his opinions are not his own, and as for politics, what opinions can he possibly have.
In short, hasn't his maturation, his personal growth, been so strangled by his upbringing that he will find it almost impossible to exist outside of dubdom?
Won't he for ever be carrying an immature child inside his head for the rest of his life?
