Just because Bloodlines do not play a prominent role in Democratic Republics, does not mean that they aren't influential or important.
Many businesses. secret societies, etc still are Bloodline based. Monarchies still exist worldwide.
Even in the United States we have begun to see how Bloodlines are gaining power politically as there becomes a neo-Aristocracy even in our Democratic
Republic...although it could be argued that this is nothing new and goes back to the early days of our Nation.
However, the most important reason why Bloodlines are probably mentioned, and are still relevant, is DNA and Genetic Memory. Just as we can
selectively breed species of crops, dogs, cats, and horses, Bloodlines represent selective breeding of different "sub-species" of humans. It has
been going on long before Eugenics caught on in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, and still continues after the downfall of Facism and the
As far as Genetic Memory, which still has yet to be proven, I am personally convinced that it does. There are common personality traits, even over 15
to 30 generations distant that persist within Bloodlines. We like to believe that our minds are conditioned as part of our upbringing, but there is a
lot more to Nature than there is to Nurture. It is difficult for Science to see these things with but only a Century of Clinical Study, but as more
and more generations pass by with scientific scrutiny, we'll be seeing Science catching up on this. (Computer Science already has discovered that the
storage potential of just a few complex proteins far exceeds our comprehension. And it makes perfect sense from an evolutionary standpoint that major
memories would be retained biologically and passed to subsequent generation to ensure survival of the species.)
