In Part I, I raised the question about the function of the father and suggested that the function of the father is that of introducing a human being into a world of social responsibility. But what does that mean and how does that work exactly? Please, let me explain.
A father's law is the law of his word
First and most importantly, a father is someone, whose word holds true. A father’s law is the law of his word and his word is supported by his actions (as well as by the actions of his partner). The same is true in society - we live by the letter of the law and we face real life consequences if we brake it. The law has no value of it is not properly executed.
