    if anyone you knew was ever stuck growing up in a dysfunctional family with one member (can be sibling, parent or grandparent) who selfishly created chaos, threw tantrums, told lies, refused to cooperate in constructive experiences, plotted intrigues or subterfuges for diversion and distraction, repeatedly and obstinately demanded 100% center of attention and time, as a means to take control of the family dynamic;

    could come about through sibling jealousy gone toxic, parent with addictive obsessive behavior, or person with anger issues out of control;

    which held family or group hostage as the 'controller' learned to exert emotional blackmail so as not to take or be held responsible for their actions..............

    using family relationship model again;

    from time to time an article or comment compares the experience of Dem-party with the GOP neocon / libertarian conservatives to a domestic violence relationship; Dems, the spouse who has been incapacitated, by violence and threats of violence losing strength, their identity and will to survive;

    that seems like a fair assessment to many people, so by using dysfunctional family and domestic partner models you have explanation for present political predicaments;
