The Coronavirus Pandemic and the Emotional Plague

Where there is social mischief to be done the emotional plague will find a way to be there to do it. The Chinese and Russian governments are controlled by emotional plague characters on the extreme political left, a.k.a., communists. Their existence depends on living off of and destroying the productivity of other nations. Hackers from these countries have been interfering with America’s coronavirus research efforts from the beginning of the pandemic. Their activity involves both stealing information and disrupting the victim’s operation networks, clear-cut manifestations of the emotional plague. According to Bryan S. Ware, the assistant director of cybersecurity for the Homeland security Department’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, “When an adversary is doing a smash-and-grab, there is even more likely a chance of not just stealing information but somehow disrupting the victim’s operations networks.”

Both Russia and China have already spread disinformation about the virus, its origins and America’s response to it. Generating confusion and interfering with people’s work function are prime tactics and symptoms of the emotional plague.

Why People Can’t “Get” the Emotional Plague

In today’s anti-authoritarian society the emotional plague, like the coronavirus, has taken on the dimensions of a pandemic. But, in contrast to the coronavirus, it operates in front of everyone’s eyes without being seen. Before positive changes can occur in our disintegrating society, people must first have an awareness that the existence and operation of the emotional plague can operate in any person and that it can be played out in almost every area of social life,

The reason that people can’t “get it” that the emotional plague exists in them and in others is because of the distorted ways that they habitually think. Whether they know it or not, people usually think about themselves and others in moral – good versus bad – terms. Based on the effect of armor on people’s thought processes, this distorted way of thinking is a barrier that prevents them from looking at personal and social problems from a scientific, functional perspective. According to moralistic thinking, since the emotional plague is “bad”, how could everyone including oneself be a carrier? However, the emotional plague is a disease, a bio-social, medical condition similar to any other pathological state of humans. Like other medical diseases, it is understood and treated as such.

Only when the emotional plague is accurately recognized for what it actually is, not as a moral failing, by a sufficient number of people as a truly pathological condition in the social realm that is present in latent form and can appear socially in all armored humans including oneself, will it be possible to correctly “treat” its highly contagious and destructive social symptoms. This is an area where the natural scientist who is knowledgable in the functional science of social orgonomy will be of help.

For those not familiar with the term emotional plague, I suggest reading the section on Socio-Political Character Types in Man in the Trap, by Elsworth Baker.

The Bio-social Consequences of the Lockdown

The emotional plague in the coronavirus pandemic began with its mindless destruction of people’s biological work function, the lockdown of the economy. The mechanistic, plague epidemiologist views the work function as if it were a kind of machine that can be mindlessly turned on and off like a switch, with to consequences.

In fact, the biological work function is not machine-like. If people’s biological work function is arbitrarily stopped, the biological energy behind it continues to exist and press for discharge even if it has no productive outlet. Having no way to discharge their energy, people out of work are left feeling anxious and “out of it”. Meanwhile, the marketplace, where human work is done, is abandoned, left unprotected and rendered defenseless to the vicissitudes of the emotional plague.

In this situation, the conditions are ripe for the emotional plague, in the form of a seemingly unrelated incident with racial overtones between a working white police officer and a black suspect, to occur triggering havoc and a nationwide chain reaction with riots, destruction to property and human life.

Unfortunately, the only way that most people will understand what happened is through their armored ways of seeing and thinking, that is, through their moral strait jacket. Nothing will have been learned about the plague to prevent future outbreaks.

Identifying the Emotional Plague’s Operation in the Coronavirus Pandemic

Before the emotional plague can be eliminated it must first be identified. The operation of the emotional plague in the current coronavirus pandemic is in its mindless destructiveness of people’s biological work function by well-meaning mechanistic scientists. The plague individual views the biological work function as if it were some kind of a machine that can be mindlessly turned on and off like a switch without any consequences.

The real problem is a functional one, to address the coronavirus pandemic by simultaneously finding ways not to interrupt the economy and destroy peoples work function. We don’t want to throw out the baby with the bath water. This approach requires people who are able to think functionally, not mechanistically. This problem is not one that the current mechanistically trained epidemiologists are qualified to deal with.

The Emotional Plague in People Thrives on Uncertainty and Confusion

The current coronavirus situation is one of “you’re damned if you do and you’re damned if you don’t”. The choice is between saving people’s lives by quarantining them or protecting their livelihood by allowing them to continue working in the workplace. It is the perfect storm for the destructive forces of the emotional plague to take its toll on human life. Economically, it destroys people’s work function. Politically, it turns one group of the clueless public against another. Medically, it continues its destructiveness killing human life. Historically, it will continue unrecognized into the future because, despite people’s best efforts, no one will ever have known, remembered or learned from what had happened.

The Coronavirus and the Emotional Plague: Further Thoughts.

The destructive social effects of the coronavirus and the emotional plague are identical. Both are medical conditions that can be highly infectious and invasive. The virus destroys life of the individual and the plague destroys life of groups of people, society. Both destroy life by generating confusion, immobilization and isolation in its victims. For example, people’s confusion and anxiety about how to deal with the epidemic generates opposing views and to political chaos, the emotional plague.

The Coronavirus and the Emotional Plague: II

People’s contactless state, prevents them from having a sense of the plague’s existence unless it erupts as an epidemic and is evidenced in a physical manifestation, such as a virus, for example.

In his novel, “The Plague” (1947), Albert Camus excellently describes a fictional account of the appearance and disappearance of an epidemic of a pestilence in an Algerian City and people’s characteristic ways of responding to it. In it, there is a striking resemblance between his fictional account and what is happening today with the coronavirus. Then as now, once the wave of the epidemic runs its course, it will be considered to be over and people will again go about their business as usual as if nothing ever happened. And the emotional plague will continue with its daily destructiveness on humanity as before.

Nothing will have been learned from what happened and nothing will have changed for the better.

The Coronavirus and the Emotional Plague

In order to understand what is happening in fascist regimes like Communist China, knowledge of the layering of the bio-psychic apparatus is essential. Fascist regimes function to maintain their own survival by operating entirely from their destructive, secondary layer and repressing the lives of the people they govern. They are fundamentally opposed to protecting every one of the core functions of their inhabitant’s lives. This identifies the character structure of people governing these nations as emotional plague characters.

With this information, it is possible to raise the following questions: Regarding the coronavirus pandemic, how can the Chinese Government consisting of a regime that survives on total repression of its population be genuinely concerned in protecting the biological core functions of its citizenry? How can these leaders be trusted to provide reliable medical information to other nations regarding the coronavirus epidemic that originated in and was allowed to spread through their own country when they actively avoided addressing it to prevent its invasion when first detected?

What is the functional relationship between communism and the coronavirus? Communism, a deadly disease (the emotional plague) in the bio-social realm, is functionally identical to the coronavirus, a deadly disease in the individual, biological realm.

The Power of Distancing.

Our society is a bio-social system that has been in a chronic state of over- expansion. Distancing of the population is a sign of bio-physical contraction. It is a defensive state in which people stay away from one another and function more in themselves. Encouraging social distancing is one of the ways that the threat of the coronavirus is currently being treated to prevent the spread of the contagion from one person to another.

In the chronically expanded social state that existed in America prior to the coronavirus pandemic, people were operating primarily from their social surface and were more out of touch with themselves and with their biological core than ever before in recent history. Social distancing can have the effect of bringing people into better contact with themselves. It can also have the effect of depriving them of their daily distractions and typical ways of maintaining substitute contact with others thereby increasing anxiety and levels of contactlessness in themselves.

People’s tendency to politicize any social situation is ever-present. Some are already questioning the medical necessity of keeping their social distance. The long term economic and bio-social effects of distancing on people’s lives and of its induced bio-physical contraction at this time of social crisis remains to be seen.

Nations Are Bio-social Systems

Nations are bio-social systems. Like individual organisms, they pulsate by expanding and contracting. When not threatened by external danger, they expand. When threatened, they contract. The coronavirus is a threat to the American Nation and, as a response, it has contracted socially and economically. The social response to the coronavirus is a rise in mass anxiety and social retreat. The economic response is a biophysical contraction accompanied by a state of fear and a sharp reduction in the economic activity.

Because of the pre-existing social and economic overly-expanded state of America, the public’s reaction to the coronavirus threat is greatly exaggerated. People are overly anxious and, as a result, have a need to understand what is happening and to be comforted. They look for answers from the government that are dependent on their individual character structures. Because it is impossible to know what will happen in the future, some overreact to the point of panic. To relieve their panic people function as groups and become more out of touch with themselves.

What is most important in times of crisis is to focus on and maintain one’s biological work function, whatever it is.

On The Government’s Handling of The Coronavirus

In Social Orgonomy, knowledge of the three layers of the human bio-psychic apparatus is indispensable. These are the biological core, the destructive secondary layer and the superficial layer or facade. A natural function of government is to protect the lives of it’s citizens from harm. Therefore, the government’s current handling of the coronavirus threat is a necessary, natural (core) function.

People’s confusion about the natural functions of human life, in particular, and of government, in general, results in the invasion of the emotional plague into the social arena. In particular, the plague thrives on the public’s confusion over the difference between natural drives from the biological core and the secondary drives from the destructive, secondary or middle layer.

This confusion allows every possible human need, natural or pathological, to be included as a natural right that requires protection by the government. This is a way of armored thinking that allows the plague from the political left in the form of bureaucracy to infest and become institutionalized in a government ready to “protect” the people.
