Psychic Dynamics are Identical on the Individual and Social Levels

The relationship of psychic forces to each other in the individual are commonly recognized by all psychiatrists and psychologists. What is not recognized is that these pathological forces are present on the social level as well. For example, on the individual level, the emotional provocativeness of the masochist pretending to be a victim in a sadomasochistic relationship is clearly evident to any well-trained mental health professional. What remains unrecognized and evaded is that this same kind of highly destructive, pathological, emotional relationship can occur between groups of people on a social level expressed in their socio-political activity. Examples are Black and White racial supremacists at the extremes of the socio-political spectrum accusing their polar opposites of racism.

Until now, there has been no understanding of the emotional forces that operate in group processes. The new, functional knowledge contained in the science of social orgonomy is a step toward opening up the possibility of introducing this vital knowledge to the public. These forces include, in particular, the operation of the emotional plague.

  1. “Examples are Black and White racial supremacists at the extremes of the socio-political spectrum accusing their polar opposites of racism” = antagonistic opposites?

    • They are polar opposites that are in a relationship of attractive opposition. One side thrives on the existence of the other. Their common functioning principle is the EP.

  2. “Antagonistic opposition” means when one variation gets stronger its opposite variation gets weaker. “Attractive (simple) opposition” means when one variation gets stronger its opposite variation gets stronger, too. The same with getting weaker.

    In the ideological sphere racists are in “antagonistic opposition,” i.e., it is about extermination of the other side. But on the actual social scene they depend on each other. For example one side mobilizes the other side, i.e., “attractive opposition.” Finally ideology (the different character structures) will get the upper hand, though.

    This is not a “statement” but a QUESTION! Dr. Konia, makes the first paragraph sense? Makes the second paragraph sense?

    • I suggest that you read and study Jacob Meyerowitz’s book “Before the Beginning of Time”.
