} Before we define family values, we have to first define a family.
} According to the dictionary (which is occasionally useful in
} clarifying simple definitions), a family is "A unit of the Mafia,
} operating in a specific geographical area."
} Now, let's see what "mafia" is. In the dictionary (I hope you
} check these references), mafia is: "The spirit of popular hostility
} to the law, manifesting itself frequently in criminal acts." These
} criminal acts include, but are not limited to, gambling, prostitution,
} extortion, selling narcotics, and loan sharking.
} With that in mind, let us now define values. Values are "The
} established ideals of life, objects, customs, etc., that the
} members of a _given_society_ regard as desireable." In this case,
} we could draw the conclusion that a mafia family is a _given_society_.
} Now, we are able to define family values. Family values are the
} established ideals that the members of a family (mafia) regard as
} desireable. Thus, from the definition of "mafia", family values
} are "hostility to the law, manifesting itself in criminal acts,
} such as gambling, extortion, selling narcotics, and loan sharking."
} This definition of family values seems most appropriate in light
} of current U.S. political discussions.
