The Sopranos and made in America

Made in American was the title of the last show of the Sopranos. I'm only on season 4 right now and after re-watching the series again thought of the strange way in a mythos Joseph Campbell way it is analogous with America.

Tony Soprano, exhibits one part of the American mythos as a psychotic panic attack driven crime boss that must seek psychiatric help to stop his blackouts where in his world the rule of law exists only to be flouted; power to be flaunted; any scruple to be parodied. Which I think what the corporate/banking mafia does to the united states and the rest of the world. He and his gang are the new world order boss. They torture, murder and kill to provide for their elite group. Wars are started to gain economic control for areas of influence.

Carmela Soprano represents the consumer populace of the United States in the sense she has a good wealthy life but has cognitive dissonance on what and whom gives her lifestyle through exploitation of the planet which is why her religion is so important to her and gives her an out for her life's contradiction.

AJ Soprano and Meadow represent other arch types of the American national persona.

The Sopranos held a mirror up to America. It was not about the mafia,!it!was!about!
the family and, in fact, it was not really about the family either, it was about

Many have no power to fight the mob or elect the new mob boss
but we need to carry on and fight the good fight.
