This ideological unconscious can be found in modified form in the
paternalistic management style adopted by many capitalists today,
especially in the smaller and mid-size companies. The "one big, happy
family" song-and-dance is designed to convince you that their "family
values" are a valid substitute for good wages and benefits.
