A conspiracy of silence or culture of silence describes the behaviour of a group of people as large as an entire national group or profession, or as small as a group of colleagues who, by tacit consensus, do not mention, discuss or recognize a particular subject. The practice may be motivated by a positive interest in group solidarity or by negative impulses such as fear of political repetition or social ostracism. It differs from the prevention of a taboo subject by the fact that the term applies to more limited social and political contexts and not to an entire culture. As a descriptor, the conspiracy of silence involves dishonesty, sometimes cowardice, and loyalty to one social group to another. As a social practice, it is a little broader than the use of euphemisms to avoid addressing a subject directly. Some cases of such a practice are sufficiently known or permanent to be known by their own specific terms, including the code of silence for the refusal of law enforcement to speak out against crimes committed by fellow officers and omert, cultural code of organized crime in Sicily. . Examples of the use of the term vary widely and include: . 7. 7. 7 ©. 7.
