Example text

The Mafia requires a Sovereign, not a community, in charge, goes the thinking – or as Sylvio Dante remarks: “We need a supreme commander at the top, not the fucking Dave Clark Five” [“Meadowlands”]. And yet, the Mafia is all about community, being-together, defining one’s self in terms of one’s relationship to the group. It is, at its very core, more communitarian than Liberal. Communitarianism rejects the assumption that all we can know, count on, or take to be fundamental in our politics, metaphysics, and ethics is the isolated individual.

The doctor is trained to do a job like any other, and he does his best because he does not want to be sued and have his malpractice insurance go up, not because he takes Junior’s Good – a Good that is necessarily unknown to him – as such as his own. What Junior wants, what we all want, is for someone to be working to cure our illnesses because he or she cares, because he or she takes our best interest to heart and truly sees how our Goods are intertwined. When Dr. Kennedy continues to snub Junior, then, Tony and Furio pay him a visit on the golf course and convince him at least to play the part of a caring physician so that Uncle Junior does not give up hope in curing his cancer.

Her silence is not for fear of having Tony do something unjust. Tony’s is a less Liberal, and surely more outwardly violent, system of justice, but he does not dispense punishment thoughtlessly. He will, that is, do everything he can to find out if the fellow he saw in Maine (in the first season episode “College”) really was Febby Petrulio, the rat who sold out his friends. When Tony threatens a doctor, he does so in the name of what could have been, what should be, of someone truly caring for another.
