The Problem of People’s”Getting” the Emotional Plague

People’s recognizing the existence and function of the emotional plague is the most important social problem facing humanity today. Without this awareness nothing in people’s social lives can possibly change for the better. The problem is that the plague is too deeply imbedded in the masses of people’s armored structures, their unconscious, for people to be aware of its existence. Their cluelessness is why one must consistently and patiently stay on the social surface of its day-to-day, pathological manifestations in social and political life before it can be possible for people to get it. These are the epidemic “symptoms” of the plague. By doing so, the plague will eventually come to the surface of some people’s awareness. This process of dealing with the plague on a social level is functionally identical to the work of the medical orgonomist performing character analysis on an individual level.

  1. Yes. Absolutely. Thanks for this post. Judy

    • Yor’re welcome.

  2. Are there criteria that can be used to differantiate between primary (from the core) and secondary impulses?

    • A criterion is the effect of the impulse. Is it life positive or life negative?

  3. Dietrich Bonhoeffer on cluelessness as compared to the emotional plague:

    Stupidity is a more dangerous enemy of the good than malice. One may protest against evil; it can be exposed and, if need be, prevented by use of force. Evil always carries within itself the germ of its own subversion in that it leaves behind in human beings at least a sense of unease. Against stupidity we are defenseless. Neither protests nor the use of force accomplish anything here; reasons fall on deaf ears; facts that contradict one’s prejudgment simply need not be believed- in such moments the stupid person even becomes critical – and when facts are irrefutable they are just pushed aside as inconsequential, as incidental. In all this the stupid person, in contrast to the malicious one, is utterly self-satisfied and, being easily irritated, becomes dangerous by going on the attack. For that reason, greater caution is called for than with a malicious one. Never again will we try to persuade the stupid person with reasons, for it is senseless and dangerous.

    • Stupidity as a manifestation of people’s cluelessness.
