Quote :
"Prinzhorn is even now a not inconsiderable presence in the field that he made his own, and he will remain a major figure, albeit a controversial one, in the field of psychology, as long as his discoveries are cherished and his insights developed as a living heritage by those who recognize, and are willing to repay, at least some small portion of the debt that scholarship still owes to his memory.

Humanitarian Demagogues, Egalitarian Rabble.  Whether today’s mechanistic and atomistic experiments with human beings originated in the Orient or in the Occident, the result is always the same: the tyranny of a clique in the name of the equality of all. And it is from this very tendency that the fantastic pipe dream of human individuals being reduced to the status of mere numbers arises. This wishful thinking is a symptom of the nihilistic Will to Power that conceals its true nature behind the cloak of such humanitarian ideals as humility, solicitude for the weak, the awakening of the oppressed masses, the plans for universal happiness, and the fever-swamp vision of perpetual progress. All of these lunatic projects invariably result in a demagogic assault on the part of the inferior rabble against the nobler type of human being. These mad projects, it need hardly be said, are always concocted in the name of “humanity,” in spite of the fact that decades earlier Nietzsche had conclusively demonstrated that it was the ressentiment, or “life-envy,” of those who feel themselves to be oppressed by fate that was at the root of all such tendencies. Indeed, it is even now quite difficult for the select few who have no wish to enroll themselves among the oppressed mob to understand the realities of their situation!

The Goals of Socialism.When we set our goals in the direction of socialism, whether in the sphere of politics, of welfare work, or of the ideal community, the fanaticism that inspires the socialist is customarily tinged with Christianity. Thus the socialist urges the citizen to progress from wicked egoism to a more social attitude. Even when we ignore the social, religious, or political nature of the ideologue’s desiderata, there is one positive aspect to this development, for socialism at least directs our attention away from the tyrannical ego and towards the world that surrounds us, thus calling upon the only one of socialism’s fundamental motives that we can regard as positive and biologically sensible.

Characterological Truth vs. Psychoanalytical Error.  The most extensive, pleasant, and (one might even say) amusing effects wrought by the application of the psychoanalytic treatment depended on the fact that the most wretched and feeble blockhead was now able to convince himself that he was equal to Goethe in that the instincts that played so decisive a role in the cretin’s development were identical with those that were operative in the case of Goethe, and it was only a malicious practical joke on the part of Destiny that permitted Goethe to find in poetry a congenial sublimation of his sexuality.

The Psychopath and the Revolution.  We can hold out no hope whatever for the successful creation of the sort of community that is constructed by ideologists on the basis of purely rational considerations, for the projects that are hatched out in the mind of the rationalist are most definitely not analogous to the development of living forms in nature, no matter how often the contrary position has been proclaimed by false prophets. Thus, the delusive hopes that are cherished for the successful implementation of the simple-minded schemes of our socialist and humanitarian ideologists must fail in the future as they have always failed in the past. The only tangible result of these schemes has been to intoxicate the isolated psychopath with an egalitarian frenzy, from which his tormented ego awakens, more desperate than ever, in order to plunge once again, with ever-increasing violence, into his political ecstasies, into bellowing his eulogies to those nameless “masses” who are so dear to the ideologue that he has appointed them to be the sole beneficiaries of his activism, now that he has been made sufficiently mad by a nebulous and insatiable longing for “liberation.” But the “sham” anonymity, which functions effectively as the cloak for politicians who pretend to act in the name of “the masses,” can only benefit clever, robust, and willful politicians, such as those who rule the Soviet Union; the real psychopath, on the other hand, who often possesses a taste for novel sensations and who, perhaps, may also be seeking personal publicity, will never be able to conform to the prescriptions of such an icy, strict self-discipline.  As a result, he “breaks out,” and is soon overwhelmed by calamities from which he thinks he can only escape by resorting to even more violent attempts to achieve “liberation.” From the standpoint of psychology, the history of revolutions is very helpful to those who wish to increase their understanding of the “everyday” behavior—as well as the political actions—of his fellow human beings, not least to the physician who seeks enlightenment as to the nature of the motivations that drive men to perform violent deeds in situations to which they lend the halo of freedom, equality, and fraternity.

Heredity as Destiny (and Tabula Rasa as Sheer Nonsense).  The life-curve of an individual’s development is a single event, which arrays itself along the lines of irrevocable changes. Strictly speaking, therefore, every occurrence, no matter how insignificant, involves an irrevocable change: in life nothing can be reversed, nothing repudiated, nothing ventured without an attendant responsibility, nothing can be annihilated: that formula constitutes the biological basis of destiny. Just as the individual must accept his biological heritage as a whole, whether he likes it or not, in precisely the same fashion must he accept the pre-ordained pattern of obscure rhythms transpiring within him.  

Today we have become tragically unconcerned with our biological destiny, to say nothing of the fact that we refuse to feel the slightest reverence to the sphere of life, to which we owe everything. …That very attitude accounts for the success that has greeted the claims advanced by Alfred Adler and his followers, who advance the dogma that the hitherto customary views on heredity are fundamentally false, since man is born as a tabula rasa whereon his environment makes impressions that, by means of education, one can direct at will, and according to the capacity of that will, toward any desired goal. Adler compounds his felony by claiming that there is no such thing as inborn talent or traits of disposition. …

It would be impossible to reject the principles of biological theory more absolutely than Adler and his cohorts have done. Even that which we understand by the old, almost obsolescent name of “temperament”—that which represents the sum-total of the somatically connected, permanent tendencies of an individual—even this link between the purely psychological and the purely somatic view is repudiated by Adler in his grotesquely teleological and hyper-rationalist construction. … Since there is no biological basis whatsoever for his stupendous assertions, one must seek for such a basis in another sphere, viz., the author’s ideology. Sure enough, we learn that Adler is a fanatical believer in the coming Utopia of socialism, and, as we all recognize, no Utopia can prosper until a faceless equality of disposition has been forced upon every individual by the ideological zealots who will run the show. Therefore I denounce the politically tendentious World-View that Adler and his apostles put forward as “science,” for it is a perfect example of nihilism passing itself off as scholarship, and no cloak of pedantic and prudent caution can hide the fact.  

Genetic Endowment and Environmental Conditioning.  Upon his entry into individual existence, the human being’s development as a psychosomatic creature is determined as regards substance, capacity for expansion, and direction, in the first place by his genetic endowment as a whole; in the second place by his pre-natal environment; and lastly by the circumstances of his birth. That almost all the active factors rise and fall in varying phases, makes a rational interpretation and estimate of the state of things at any given moment impossible in the strictest sense of that word.

But the fact that such an admission of the difficulties that arise due to methodological limitations is exploited by false prophets in order to deceive the world as to the real nature of biological facts—usually in order to breathe some life into the defunct heresy of the infant born as a tabula rasa—is either a sad indication of their childish mentality or additional evidence that they are indulging their ideological proclivities in the wrong place. What Goethe described as “the law under which you entered the world,” what Kant, Schopenhauer, and others called the “intelligible character,” is the first unavoidable actuality that we must accept as the destiny of our being, and as the starting-point of all investigation and thinking that relates to the human being. All experience and all reasonable thinking drives us back to this basic fact."

Zizek wrote:
"What survived of the sexual liberation of the 1960s was the tolerant hedonism easily incorporated into our hegemonic ideology. The superego imperative to enjoy thus functions as the reversal of Kant’s “Du kannst, denn du sollst!” (You can, because you must!)—it relies on a “You must, because you can!” That is to say, the superego aspect of today’s “non-repressive” hedonism (the constant provocation we are exposed to, enjoining us to go to the end and explore all modes of jouissance) resides in the way permitted jouissance necessarily turns into obligatory jouissance. This drive to pure autistic jouissance (through drugs or other trance-inducing means) arose at a precise political moment: when the emancipatory sequence of 1968 exhausted its potentials. At this critical point (mid-1970s), the only option left was a direct, brutal, passage a l’acte, which assumed three main forms: the search for extreme forms of sexual jouissance; leftist political terrorism (RAF in Germany, Red Brigades in Italy); and, finally, the turn towards the real of an inner experience (Oriental mysticism). What all three share is the withdrawal from concrete socio-political engagement."


"There is something true to the notion that jouissance has become central to our time because the focus is no longer on thought, meditation, and thoroughness, but on feeling, orgasms, and immediacy. The obsession with jouissance is revelatory of the fact that, nowadays, to be you must either jouir, have an orgasm, or refrain from doing so, which explains why hell is no longer others but impotence, alienation, and the mere possibility that existence may not be about feelings and that raw jouissance is a just merely another form of enslavement, which reinforces nothingness. This fact explains why even pain, “sin,” privation and personal morality have become sources of jouissance. It is for this reason that Sunday’s sermons in big American mega-churches look as gigantic orgies where the goal is to get high on Jesus and on the fact that he is leading his followers to more stuff and thus to more jouissance.

Camus thought that the worm of absurdity was within the human heart and he was right. The saddest thing about the 1960s and its so-called sexual liberation is that they didn’t liberate sex, but that they maximized the absurdity of human existence by divinizing jouissance in order to kill thought in an attempt to eradicate the possibility for people to be miné, to be undermined. In our world, it has become difficult to find Roquentins, people who like the hero of Sartre’s Nausea think and think and think without jouissance blocking their awareness of absurdity, without seeking to escape nothingness. However, it is easier to find Estelles, people who, as the heroine of No Exit, cannot live without jouissance. In our world, the most important things are the mirror and other’s people gaze because they accentuate jouissance by externalizing it thus making it the main means of self-actualization and self-worth."

I locate the "End of History" in the 1980s. After that came only the Internet and that was it. The last big thing was 1968. Culturally, spiritually, intellectually. This was the last great event on this planet. So I would like to discuss this subject, along with the leftist egalitarianism and whatever else that signified this Era or followed after it. The "Love&Peace" time the "Hippie Era", "Sex, Drugs and Rock'n'Roll". Whatever label you want to put on it. Also the the more militant radical leftist groups.
This last must be stressed. The 60's which was actually the late 60s and early 70s is often oversimplified to be hippy reactions to society and right repressive reactions to the hippies. But you had a lot of other movements out there, many not very hippy at all. From marxist to anarchist to black Power to Aim and so on. Lot of intellectual Groups who were not simply rejecting but had other structures and even authorities in mind.

And of course there was a lot of simple fashion. Hippy as fashion, left as fashion, nationalism as fashion.

But 1968 in France, say, cannot be looked at as hippy.

We had political movements, demonstrations against the vietnam war, the rights for women and blacks movements.

Our parents and teachers were influenced by this Era. Everyone. So that's why I think it's important and I will play the advocatus diaboli, since I sense some right-wing leaning in this forum. I haven't read very much Marx, but growing up in Germany all my influences up until recently have been leftist or non-political. The furthest to the right I have read up until a year ago was Nietzsche. And he is well accepted here amongst the humanist masses. Only recently have I looked into other right-wing writers, that are legal over here.
The 60s along with Vietnam and Nixon, in the US that is, really undercut the existence of God/DAddy/father being taken seriously. It did not lead (just) to Motherworship/atheism/feminism, but it undercut daddy being taken seriously in a lot of contexts and a certain stiffness and untouchableness in leadership became passe.

Then there was the Reagan daddy backlash, but now it was common to openly literally ritually or cathartically both hate daddy when one of the daddy mannikens took himself seriously in public.

I claim that the 1968ers (as they are called in Germany) made heavy spiritual experiences. The problem was that they were not ritually grounded. They had no culture with their drug experiences for example. They were angry and took LSD, which gave them bad trips. So they overdid it.
Some sure did. It was a perfect american short cut urge. Not being lodged in a tradition has its positive side, but it was like giving ten year olds the keys to the Space Shuttle.

gues wrote:
I think todays Left romantacize 1968 and the right-wing pretends like it didn't happen.
Or blame Everything on it. This was the most recent start of the downfall. It's funny how the 50s often gets romanticized, but the fifties, really post ww2 years up to the early 60s - say up to Beatlemania - directly led to what gets called the 60s. But somehow is, at the same time, blameless to the right.
guest wrote:

But IT HAPPENED! And it was BIG! And what it was exactly, I don't know. But to dismiss it, is a fault. Todays news compared to the moon landing! JFK was assasinated. So you can say anything you wish about this time, but it wasn't boring. People travelled to India and seeked enlightenment. I say: if we want to understand our present situation we can either go back as far as ancient greece or the enlightenment era, but to understand modernity we have to understand 1968.
And why it failed both for individuals, Groups and society. Why the big overhall never happened.

The 20th Century with it's 2 WorldWars. The Generations conflicts. (Grandparents, Parents, Children, Childrens children...)Why young and old don't understand each other. Because each Generation has their own spirit. I want to move past 1968. But I think we are stuck with the aftermath of 1968, because we haven't looked at it precisely enough. It's become a phenomenon of pop-culture. It's become nostalgia. Something light and easy. But that was exactly NOT the case, from the knowledge I got by now. It was rough, people were struggling with their existence.
yes, the left was much more complicated than is generally remembered. A very wide range of temperments, mindstyles, political agendas and ways of being in the World.

guest wrote:
And they risked adventures. And why did they turn so conservative afterwards, in the 80's at the lastest in most cases!? Why didn't they keep up their hippie lifestyles? Who were the leaders? And who the followers?
Some did, but many did not. They moved into academia and definitely pushed it further left. Or they Went off and had small scale solutions, farms, communes or indiviudual households that were hippy, lefty. But I Think there was a huge emotional deflation when society did not buckle, when government Went on business as usual. I Think they really though, this is it, this is the change. And this was not simpy being naive. There were a lot of Rolling effects and very rapid change. Compared the cultural Changes from 1990 to 2010 with the Changes between 63 and 73 and there is Little comparison. But the core was not touched and the core rules.

Duchesne wrote:
"Scholars have long recognized that the Greek "invention of politics" was unprecedented and of crucial significance to the subsequent development of a political discourse in the West in which politics would cease to be the purview of divine kinship "cloaked in the secrecy of the royal palace". They are known to have "invented politics" itself --- in believing that any citizen could deliberate rationally about political matters in a democratic manner. By the time of Pericles (495–429 BC), one of the main instruments of the government was an Assembly open to rich and poor alike in which the most important issues of Athens were debated and motions approved or rejected. The business of the Assembly was determined by a Council of Five Hundred made up of fifty selected from each of the ten Greek tribes representative of all the males over eighteenth who were free residents of Athens and whose parents were Athenian, which amounted to about 1 out of 10 of all the residents. They also invented politics in opening most of the offices of the state and functions of public life to the majority of citizens.

Many aristocratic thinkers distrusted the abilities of most men to use their rational capacities properly, and questioned the notion that men were essentially rational creatures, but what is unique to the Greeks is the realization that politics should  include contested debates by citizens rather than being monopolized by clannish aristocrats lacking an appreciation of the wider interests of the community to which they belonged. They sought unity among the citizen residents, and, to this end, they invented the idea of citizenship capable of deliberating on political matters.

Ancient Greek were neither Neocons nor radical Marxists.
Current accounts of the polis recognize the undeniable fact that most residents were excluded from politics, but they would have us believe, in the words of Philippe Nemo, a liberal right wing French philosopher, that the Greeks developed a form of citizenship in which individuals were abstracted from any other form of ethnic lineage. In his book, What is the West? (2006), Nemo pushes this idea that the West should be defined in terms of its development of universal values such as democracy, freedom, critical reason, science, and open markets, tracing these ideas back to the Greeks. No evidence is offered justifying the claim that Greek citizenship contained "a more abstract idea of the human person" "regardless of ethnic identity" (9, 12). Yes, there was a more abstract idea of the members of the city-state, and the Greeks overall also developed a sense of their own Greekness as a free people ruled by laws in contrast to the Persians, but they did not develop an idea of citizenship in abstraction from their Greekness and from their residency and birth in particular city-states.

Bruce Thornton, an American Neocon caught up in the hysteria that "we" are in a global war against Islam, expresses a similar view when he writes:

"Today, this idea [of citizenship], expanded to include all humanity, regardless of sex or country or race, lies at the heat of all attempts to create a just and free society."      
 
Clearly, Thornton is not saying that the Greeks already developed the idea of citizenship irrespective of sex and race. He is, nevertheless, drawing a direct teleological line between ancient Greek citizenship and the current idea that the United States is a propositional nation. Nemo is implying the same. They want us to believe that ancient Greece developed ideals of freedom and democracy for "humanity". Thornton regularly uses phrases about "our common humanity" and the "equality of all men" in relation to the Greeks. This is the same line of reasoning European New Right thinkers employ in the case of Christianity. Both views are mistaken.

Cornelius Castoriadis, internationally known for his garrulous and boring book, The Imaginary Institution of Society (1977), pushes this argument further, as leftists always do, compelling "conservatives" to walk timorously behind them lest they be seen as reactionaries. Castoriadis ascribes to the ancient Greeks the main tenets of radical Marxism. He writes that the Greek concept of nomos, that one can create laws and alter those laws in the course of time, amounted "to explicitly putting into question the established institution of society." "Nothing" was "sacred" or "natural" for the Greeks, he says; it was all about nomos, conventions and socially constructed identities (See his essay "Power, Politics, Autonomy" in Cultural-Political Interventions in the Unfinished Project of the Enlightenment, eds., Axel Honneth, Thomas MacCarthy, Claus Offe, and Albrecht Wellmer, MIT Press, 1992).

Not going to get into a long discussion about how wrong Castoriadis is except to say that the Greeks never set up a polar opposition between nomos and nature (or physis) but, in varying ways, believed that human conventions were best when they reflected and sought to perfect, by bringing to fruition, what was potentially already in nature. For Castoriadis the Greeks did not believe in any natural laws; humans could be molded into any imaginary figures. He loves the words "radical imaginary". Imagine all the people. Greeks, apparently, taught us that we can abolish natural differences between the sexes and races and create a global community ruled by the ideas of Castoriadis.

It is hard to believe, but this is a standard way of reading the Greeks today across all campuses in the West; they are supposedly the harbingers of mass immigration, feminism, and the abolition of ethnic identities.

We must not concede the originality and greatness of our European ancestors to the cultural Marxists and this is why I am criticizing aspects of the European New Right that fall in line with the cultural Marxist take on the West. The West does eventually engender bad ideas, the left is driven by a "Faustian morale," as I said in another essay, but we need a clear understanding of how this morale was derailed against the identity of European Man. We need to understand historically which developments in Western history are responsible for this derailment rather than ascribing to the West a teleological immanence from Greek (or Christian) times all the way to the present pathological state."

Lyssa wrote:
Thus, we may say that Bataille, and later Foucault, reckoned with three main spiritual forces that appear to have shaped modernity:

(1) a compassionate tradition bound to a belief in transcendence (i.e., that here is something beyond this life, however impenetrable it might be to our hearts and minds), sacred geometry, and the good—this tradition we will classify from now on as “Apollonian”;

(2) the mechanical age of industrial power, and its associated mentality of thrift and efficiency;

(3) and the bloody worship of yore. Buddhism, Platonism and neoplatonism, for instance, would fall under the Apollinian category, whereas Christianity appears somewhat torn between the first and the third form of worship: it is indeed compassionate, but, as Bataille would obsessively remark, its myth is deeply rooted in blood and sacrifice (the crucifixion), as well as in its insistent offer of unbounded forgiveness, which, Bataille interjected with reason, implies perforce the consummation of unbounded crimes.


As for these three spiritual forces, the first Bataille, as a young Catholic seminarian, used to fear, but he subsequently deemed it moribund and defeated, if not entirely meaningless; the second he saw as the mediocre usurper of “sacred energy” (i.e., the lifeblood of humanity)—sacred energy which, once it is harnessed to the machines and the logic of profit, becomes vitiated and assumes the form of what Bataille calls “power.” The third was in his eyes the authentic path: though the rites of blood sacrifice were shocking, to embrace them was to him the most consistent, honest, and sensible practice if he were to make (non)sense of this world in the face of its endless torment, inexplicable suffering, and the gaping abyss of death. In other terms, Bataille wished for a new empire of Kali: he longed to reconcile in one creed the blooming of flowers with the carnage of flesh.


The Apostles of Chaos write since the early Christian era to lament, in the words of a modern commentator, that we humans “are exploited on a cosmic scale,” that we are the “proletariat” of a second-tier god (a “demiurge-executioner”), who exiled us, “slaves,” “into a world that is viscerally subjected to violence. We are the dregs and sediment of a lost heaven, strangers on our own planet.” “The order of evil,” is recognized through the incessant “necessity of destroying and devouring. A necessity so widespread, so planetary, that it places war and nutrition on an identical plane. Seen in this perspective, wars are nothing but an inescapable means by which communities feed themselves and survive. This and much else is true of Gnosis." [Preparata, The Ideology of Tyranny]

Perinatal Arising in Sixties and Generations Since as Seen in Drug Use, Fantasy of Fusion, Vampire Apocalypse, and Being Gratefully Dead
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Perinatal Arising in Sixties and Generations Since

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Other evidence for closeness to the perinatal unconscious comes from Kenneth Keniston, who studied the youth of the Sixties. In Keniston’s widely read book of the time titled[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], he described an increasingly prevalent, unusually influential, and relatively newly emerging personality type, which he discovered in his sociopsychological study of youthful college students.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Raging to Reenter, Digging Under Ground, Fantasy of Fusion

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Among other traits, he found these youth to be characterized by fantasies of a “rage to reenter” the womb; and a “fantasy of fusion” with the mother, which took[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]perinatal forms of all kinds including stories of wishing to dig one’s way back into the earth; a fascination with and wish to return to the past, the long forgotten, and the under ground; and a desire to find oblivion in some enveloping medium…even at the price of self-destruction!
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Existential Angst, Death and Dying, Peter Pan

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Some of the other noticeably perinatal elements of Sixties youth were existential angst, being enamored of death and dying, and a refusal of “normal” adulthood. ([You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].) And think about it. Are these descriptions also not a lot like what we have heard of the generation that followed Sixties youth…the so-called Generation X?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Vampire Apocalypse…It’s All So Black and White

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]For Generation X, black clothes, white painted faces, and black lipstick were the fashion statement of the Eighties and Nineties.
And what was this statement of that sector of Gen X youth—a statement that began in the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Seventies among what was then called the “punk” movement, which includes now the fad of vampirism—except the same fascination with death as Sixties “alienated” youth…again. This mental set is an obvious reflection of the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]I’ve been discussing. The “perinatal veil” through which they saw things was becoming more blatant.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Being Gratefully Dead

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]But this trend began with the Boomer Generation. Need I remind of this same theme of being dead and then reborn coming from the Sixties as in being “gratefully dead”? It seems that this trend toward easier access to and higher awareness of perinatal influences has been going on for a while now.

A Perinatal Printout Is Indicated by Drug Use

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]There are other perinatal similarities between the youth of the Sixties and the generations to follow—this time specifically with the Millennial Generation, the one that followed Gen X and who are predominantly the sons and daughters of Boomer parents. Millennials were born after the mid-Seventies; they are a different cohort from those born 1960 till roughly 1974—Gen X; and those born 1945 to 1959—the Boomers.

Drug Usage Rising Since the Nineties Shows Perinatal Attraction

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Illegal drug use among youth, beginning in the Nineties, began going up again. This coincides with the coming into young adulthood of the Millennial Generation. Unlike drug usage of the legal and mind-debilitating kind (booze and tobacco), drug usage of the illegal and mind-facilitating kind (pot, LSD, speed, ecstacy) is an indication of an emerging [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]perinatal unconscious. Drugs are intimately woven with perinatal influences in a number of ways. Not only can some drugs bring up birth feelings, as[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]has shown, but the mother being drugged while giving birth to her child can result in drug abuse by that child later in life.

An Aside on Drugs and Generations —Sixties, Gen X, Millennials and Their Parents
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Millennials Are Sixty-ish

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]There is another overlooked factor or aspect of this rise in drug use in the Nineties by Millennials: These youngsters were the sons and daughters of the Sixties generation who, in their own youth, as we all know too well, engaged in drug experimentation. In fact, this younger generation of drug users has sometimes been called the baby-boomer “echo” generation.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Gen Xers Are Fifty-ish

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Millennials are quite a bit different from the previous “echo” generation — Gen X. The generation that came to age during the Eighties—Yuppies and Xers—had parents who were [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]born during the Great Depression and [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]World War Two, who had their young adult formative years during the Eisenhower — Joe McCarthy –Presley Fifties. So Gen X was influenced by their parents to conservatism, career-mindedness, and, for drug-of-choice, alcohol.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]
But this “echo” generation of Millennials has parents whose young adulthood was forged in the rebellion, drug and sex experimentation, activism, liberal-radicalism, and idealism of the Sixties, not the Fifties. [Footnote 1]
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Forget What You’ve Heard About Generation Gap

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Generationally speaking, we know that children do not predominantly rebel to the opposite of their parents’ values. Kenneth Keniston, for one, has made it clear—referring to studies—that [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]. So this most recent cohort of youth was of course going to be more liberal in their attitude to drug use than Gen X, even if their parents, in their coming into adulthood, overtly decry or are against the use of drugs. Keep in mind also that many of the baby-boomers have retained, not reversed, their acceptance of drug experimentation, and many still believe in and use drugs; many still considering the occasional use of certain types—especially the psychedelics, and to some extent, pot—to be an aid to self-development and/or spiritual awareness.

Family Lies Not “Family Ties”

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]The myth that youth rebel against their parents’ values was expressed and propagandized by the TV show “[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.].” [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]This was an oh-so-convenient portrayal, as it contributed to the pervasive scapegoating of the Sixties generation by the Fifties Generation—the Eisenhower–Joe McCarthy–Presley generation—who came into their Triumphant Phase, that is, took over the reins of society as mature adults in the Eighties.

Rebellion in Youth Amounts to Being Uncompromising About Parents’ Values Not Defying Them

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]This “[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]” kind of rebellion, however inaccurate, seems to be credible largely as a result of the observation that youth do rebel against their parents. But it [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]ignores the fact that when they do, and they don’t always, they revolt or rebel, as in the Sixties youth, most often in the direction of being more insistent of actually living the values of their parents, not simply voicing them. [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]As Keniston found out, for example, as he described in his follow-up to[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], in the book, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.], radical youth had liberal (hardly conservative!) parents.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]When Sixties youth were angry at their parents it was out of their perception of their parents as compromising and not living out their own expressed ideals, as laid out to their children in raising them. Therefore, Sixties rage against adults came out of their disgust at their parents for “not walking their talk.” As we may recollect, there was the oft-repeated charge of “hypocrite” directed by some of these youth toward their parental generation.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Millennials and Their Sixties Parents

In this regard notice also that this latest crop of young—born mid-70s through roughly 2000 (Boomers had children over a longer expanse of time than generations previous and since, for reasons that I’ve dealt with in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]and being now in their twenties and thirties…the sons and daughters of the Sixties Generation—has also seen increases in voting for liberal or Democratic candidates. Their turnout for Clinton in 1992 was the first time since the Seventies that the youth vote went Democratic. Their support of Obama was widely given as the reason for his success.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Occupy Wall Street … Sixties Gen Liberals, Millennial Revolutionaries?

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]In the Nineties we saw — despite the AIDS scare — an end to a fledgling “youth celibacy movement” — which had been a movement of Yuppie/Gen Xers encouraged by their Fifties Generation parents. The Millennials, [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]echoing again their parents and this time the sexual revolution, were noted for early and/or increased sexual experimentation.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] This latest cohort of youth also has seen increases in idealism, activism, and volunteerism. It is no coincidence that we have finally seen a rising up of activism again in the occupy wall street movement, with Millennials taking the lead and supported, taught, and inspired by their Sixties cohort parents.  [Footnote 2]

Perinatal Propensities in LSD Use … Lucy in the Sewer with Depression and No-Exit Wombs

The Epidemic of Depression Shows Pervasive BPM II Influence

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Lucy in the Sewer with Depression

Other connections between drug use and perinatal influence: Perinatal feelings are very often of the depressive, no-exit type, and some drugs are temporarily effective antidotes for that. Depression itself is epidemic nowadays, indicating the rise of BPM II feelings. There is widespread use of antidepressants in America currently.

No-Exit Wombs

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] has claimed, based upon the tens of thousands of sessions of exploration into the perinatal unconscious that he has personally facilitated and thus [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]observed, that the roots of endogenous—that is to say, deep rooted and engrained, not just situational—depression lie in the [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]in the womb prior to birth.

Various psychedelics and hallucinogens are used at postmodern raves, among many other places.
Their increased use also points to perinatal influences in that it is known that psychedelics—LSD in particular—can help people to access and to some extent resolve perinatal trauma, when taken for purposes of personal growth.

Corrective on LSD Misinformation

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]For those who have cynically adopted the line that either psychedelics are another drug that blots out one’s Pain or that they are only used for recreational or sensual/hedonistic purposes or that the kinds of birth experiences that Grof describes as occurring on LSD only occur in supervised and guided sessions, like the ones he offered…for those who have dismissed psychedelics and LSD in any of these ways, let me say,
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

LSD is Hardly Escapist

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]First, psychedelics, especially LSD and to some extent, even marijuana, are known to act in the brain in a way almost exactly the opposite of the drugs used to escape from reality—such as, for example, alcohol, nicotine, or heroin—though this news flies in the face of the myth put out by the all-encompassing anti-drug propaganda machine, which puts all drugs in the same category. This [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]is common knowledge among researchers and scientists who study these things. For elaboration, see[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]—especially the part on “[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]“—as well as subsequent chapters of that book/blog.
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

Drugs—Not Just for Fun Anymore

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Second, that drugs are only used for recreational purposes is patently false. Though the vast majority of drug use is recreational, there are in print many examples, and the admissions of many authors, of the use of LSD by individuals and groups for purposes of personal[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]growth.[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]And, in my own limited exploration, personal growth was my motivation. In fact, many people are afraid to take the drug LSD, knowing full well that its effects are not always pleasurable or recreational. So why would they accept that risk if they did not have some other intent, like personal growth, for experimenting on themselves with it?
[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]

LSD and Birth Reliving

[You must be registered and logged in to see this link.][You must be registered and logged in to see this link.]Finally, before I had ever heard of such a possibility of reliving one’s birth, let alone heard of Grof, or Janov for that matter, I learned that at least one person at my university on LSD found himself feeling like a fetus and then going through a process of struggling through a birth canal, and so on.

This shows the shift in [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] and the whole VOt. project.

As per modern dialectics, "discrimination" means paying acute attention to every single, minute individual origin in atomic fashion at the expense of the larger view; a subsuming of the general category under the sub-category. Categories are of course dismissed in such inversions.
The irony of this is, the same liberal fags. then whine about the "culture of surveillance", out of which emerge, consequently, the hero-worshipping and celebrity cults of "whistle-blowers" and freedom fighters of free information.

The liberal hedonists, typically, want just the good side. Ultra-special individualistic treatment and care and sensitivity and then bitch about surveillance and oppression when information is hoarded to study them for the sensitivity and care they! insisted, retards. Government conspiracies then abound and then informants become heroes.

This kind of split is an example of the same [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] that Satyr's talked about, spreading like cancer.

The VOt subjectivist special-treatment in the name of Human Rights and relabelled as "Discrimination"  and "value of proper valuing" is the modern Hedonistic dialectical inversion of what Discrimination originally is - in the current context, that Race is a reality.
Both over-objective "colour-blindness": colour differences are insignificant, and over-subjective "colour-consciousness": every colour is equally significant,,  are either sides of racial erasure and an aspect of the hedonists' nihilistic self-hatred.

I am not quite understanding this. Wine puts you in the feminine, so you re saying Neitzche did not like this? To get the most out of feminine energy...you mean the external woman? Neitzche never had a girlfriend, so I don't see how he "got the most out of her" or understood the external feminine energy. Neitzche was a Nihilist so he had internal feminine energy, it is odd he did not like wine.

You think a man needs to have a girlfriend to understand women? Do you think a woman, by simple virtue of being a woman, always understands women better? What's a girlfriend anyways? Nietzsche is a nihilist now?

Some get drunk on wine and other get drunk on water. You don't have to dull your senses with alcohol to be intoxicated. This is a cheap and easy route to opening up. Getting drunk on alcohol isn't lowering yourself to her level, it's just lowering yourself. How can you swiftly cross from high to low states and back again if you're stumbling drunk. In other words, there's a clear way of empathizing with another from a place of internal harmony and intoxication with life, and then there's the suddenly amiable drunk who once sober again returns to a defensive, tight guard (he can only "flow" when he's drunk, and even then, it's a dirty flow)

How so is Nietzsche a Nihilist; he who prophesied how the few will walk among the many human wreckages, analysed from the past and his age how the future of men will unravel into greater degeneracy.

The Nihilist Nietzschean camp is exemplified in two subdivisons, with one as proponents and the opposite one as opponents, where a part of one bidirectionally diffuses into the other:
One belongs to self-identified Nihilists who 1) after a comprehensive study of Nietzsche have found that he has both inspired/influenced/caused and reinstated their Nihilism and who 2) after a second had, abridged annotation they uncorrorboratedly slogan Nietzsche as a Nihilist, jamming and cramming it in close proximity to their beliefs;
The other one encompasses both parts of the first, with the latter part of the first as its primary modulation, but instead of being admissive they are rather dismissive.

Most certainly the average woman doesn't understand women that well. Neitzche may have understood women, but you said he "engaged the feminine." I guess you mean, engaged only in his mind.

Also I don't see the connect between wine and feminity in this sentence "No one engaged and understood the feminine as well as Nietzsche, IMO...who remarked that even drinking one glass of wine could ruin his whole day."

Also Neitzche has some quotes which indicate he was a depressed man with some nihilistic views on life.

Quote :

I have retracted my views on this, which were silly. However I am still on the fence about the usefulness of negro genes, negro genes may be helpful to whites in the area of men who want their kids to be well endowed, rebellious and not feminized, at the cost of some intellectual sensibility.

Negros are the most feminized of all males.
You've bought into the hyper-masculine displays, compensating for their effete spirits.

Hyperbole is usually a sign of weakness in the area being exaggerated.

Negroes are the most feminine men on the earth; they consume like zombies - care so much about sneakers, pillage the most unneeded items detached from life needs, care so much about their hair and need G-culture to feel masculine in a oppressed society where White man may not unfold themselves. Their value is linked to fashion and bling bling items; really, negroes are masculine MEN?!

I guess their social conformity does make them feminine.

Feminization is not about muscles and dicks, dear.
It's about the mind.
Masculinity is an attitude, a relationship of man with world.

Also Neitzche has some quotes which indicate he was a depressed man with some nihilistic views on life.

Which are?

Delineate the tonality between the unreserved who accentuates its insecurities with a speech and gesture of a postured all importance, an irresolute ego, taker, or downer, and the reserved who accentuates its securities with a speech and gesture of a transpired enthusiasm, neither important nor unimportant, a resolute ego, giver, or upper.

Elaboration: for the former, listen to the content and demeanor of rap music.
The former can be ascribed an effete ego, in that it describes a displacement of feminine dramatics or pathos.

Co-relating the miracle and the trauma.

Both involve expectations of dissolution.


Perniola wrote:
"For Bataille,  the miracle defines the experience of sovereignty that appears when we can get away from the world of utility and access to a full experience of present. This occurs, according to Bataille, in a series of events that include art and the sacred, laughter and tears, sexuality and death. The meeting with these events generates a kind of exhilaration, a miraculous sensation, the entrance into an extraordinary condition that emancipates from the  everyday life chains. Therefore, the end must not be considered with exclusive reference to transcendence.

For Bataille, the words miracle and miraculeux are considered in a literal sense:  From Latin mirus, which means wonderful, amazing and surprizing. The context to which  Bataille refers to in the miracle, is connected with the etymology of mirus that has affinities with the Indo-European root from which the greek  μειδιώ  which means smile, from which the English smile. Moreover, only  the human beings  smile. If in other books, Bataille was the founder of erotic anthropology, which saw precisely the distinctive character of human beings in  eroticism, here the direction seems to go towards a smiling  anthropology: in fact, the miraculous instant is when waiting ends in nothing!  Bataille seems to repeat Kant's famous definition, that laughter is a condition resulting from a tense expectation, which all of a sudden vanishes.

Not only in respect of what happened, but also what has not happened, the expression returns: <> It seems that some  journalistic report and judicial actions, without efficiency have been considered sufficient to rescue and redeem the horrors that occurred. There is the so-called <> and <> something that belongs intimately to the world of communication and futility in which the real truth of things, even more atrocious, has sunk.
       The concept of trauma, seen as a psychic wound caused by external violence, which cannot be psychically elaborated and therefore then passed over  through an analytical work, it seems the most suitable to describe the condition that, together with the miracle, has characterized the ways of  feeling from the Sixties onwards. The trauma remains in the psyche as a foreign body of which you cannot find a logical and convincing explanation, exactly how it occurs in the case of the miracle, generating a state of powerlessness and frustration that you cannot overcome. It is something not interpretable and that cannot be assimilated as long as you remain in a purely subjective horizon.

The theory of cultural memory is un another historiographical trend that has raised the problem of how to deal with the problem of current history. This constitutes a  reaction to the climate of miracle and of trauma that characterizes the irruption of the unexpected and unpredictable. Rightly, Pierre Nora observes that it is functional to the creation of a unique identity, ethnic, national or of group and it is manifested in a commemorative mania, which nearly always betrays the true meaning of what it evokes. The result is a kind of mummification, monumental or fetishization of the past; The proliferation of museums, the passion for genealogies, the allocation of an exaggerated importance towards the testimonies of the survivors, the prevailing of the patrimony against the story, the obsession to preserve everything, are as many aspects of renunciation in respect of the possibility to write history intended as an unitary story full of meaning of which the author takes all the responsibility for. According to the example set by Pierre Nora, the fact to commemorate the French Revolution becomes much more important than the commemorated event. The militancy of memory ends up with the exploitation of the past, confusing the historical opinion with the political and judicial one."

Funny, but it reminds me of a certain behavior: Virtue Signaling

The feminine sexual instinct for attention is politicized, such that to attack virtue signaling is interpreted as an attack on their sexuality.

Haven't read; review says from a Xt. perspective, but one more addition to noting the impact of the leftist cultural revolution and the frankfurt school.
