In his book "Civilization and its Discontents" (1930) Sigmund Freud wrote :

"Men clearly do not find it easy to do weithout the satisfaction of this tendency to aggression that is in them; when deprived of satisfaction of it they feel ill at ease. There is an advantage, not to be undervalued, in the existence of smaller communities, through which the aggressive instinct can find an outlet in enmity towards those outside the group ...

I once interested myself in the peculiar fact that peoples whose territories are adjacent, and are otherwise closely related, are always at feud with and ridiculing each other, as, for instance, the Spaniards and the Portuguese, the North and South Germans, the English and the Scots, and so on. I gave it the name of 'narcissism in respect of minor differences' which does not do much to explain it. One can now see that it is a convenient and relatively harmless form of satisfaction for aggressive tendencies, through which cohesion amongst the members of a group is made easier."

Think about it!

Wassail!

Brain, oh sorry, I meant Brian

Water is VERY bad for accordions, worse even than for banjos. If osmeone comes towards me with a ducking stool, I'm going to point to you and say. 'Him first......' this will give me time to hide the beloved accordion before I go for a swim.....
