I'd like someone to conduct an indepth study into people's attitudes about what it means to get into trouble. Literaly, the term 'getting into trouble' is interesting for what it connotes, as well as how it changes throughout the course of our lives. When we're young, 'getting into trouble' is a complete summation of consequences for wrongdoing. Implying a spanking, tongue-lashing, and or grounding, the term wields much weight. Once a youngster 'gets into trouble' (usually from parent or teacher), he/she has moved from 'get' to 'got1; it's a very clear and definable process. But when more of society enters the picture, 'getting into trouble* becomes more complex. The shades become subtler, with policemen, peers, God, lawyers administering various consequences. So teens and adults have a blend. But it may be this blend which abstracts that previously reliable 'getting into trouble' from its consequences. Take Michael Milken, junk-bond king, or Richard Nixon. What in the world might 'getting into trouble' mean to men such as these?


'Ooh...gonna get it', even translated to an adult level, doesn't carry with it the same gravity. I'm sure this holds true for men and women of lesser influence as well. As we age, how abstracted from consequence does the term become? A tangent to all this could be organized religion as the ultimate source of 'getting into trouble'.
