Freud – on misplaced sexual gratification
by Steele Coddington | June 17, 2009
Since a lot of Mensa qualified students, teachers and tenured professors who read this celebrated bastion of infallible conservative intellectual expression are often misinformed on social and financial issues, it seemed to be the time to psychiatrically examine the various stages of insanity observably evolving in the id and ego of a neurotic patient posing as the Great Mother of all children (everyone) in the U.S. Obsessed with fixing our economy and simultaneously controlling our minds, the Great Mother needs clinical evaluation to determine whether her actions really are maternal or straight from the loony bin in the asylum where she lives.
Our observations are derived from the father of psychiatry, Sigmund Freud, whose works provide clues to the causes of the electorates’ unhappiness with the madness of the Great Mommy. His signature study on the subject, Civilization and Its Discontents, translated from the German in 1929, dealt with “the irremediable antagonism between the demands of instinct and the restrictions of civilization.” ‘Instinctual demands,’ basically, refers to individual freedom and the pursuit of happiness. When restricted by governments (the authoritarian force of civilization) through ever increasing oppressive controls, the individual, like a wine glass exposed to the very high pitch of a nearby singer’s voice, shatters into a thousand pieces … is destroyed! This is essentially what happened to Russia under Marxist doctrine and is the psychiatric prognosis that is predicted for current U.S. monetary policy ... which, simply stated is, “Money. You got it, I want it.”
Many academics with no net worth, and sanctimonious delight, call it “redistribution of wealth.” Freud today would classify this as collective disorientation ... a serious irrational mental impairment caused by diminution of rational thought, intellectual gene deterioration, empathy delusion, ego failure, and sexual gratification displaced by love of money that belongs to someone else.
Past diagnosis of these same instinctual aberrations in ancient societies led to chaos and disintegration of free market civilizations. The early Egyptians first manifested similar delusionary symptoms when Rameses The First bankrupted the kingdom with a mandatory single payer national health care scheme run by quack officials on the Grand Council of Pharaohs. Because he had eloquently scammed the country into it, Rameses’ tongue was embalmed and buried in a pile of camel dung under a used Sphinx, to remind people that when the government runs out of other people’s money, camel excrement hits the fan.
Freud was able to define such sickness as Reverse Oedipus Complex. Taxpayers, initially loving the government for bestowing unearned entitlements on them, soon began to consider the government as an abusive Mother and sought retribution because her taxes took over 60 percent of the excessive minimum wage they earned at the only private sector jobs not owned by the government.
Another example of the Freudian sexual gratification displacing common sense: when the Great Mother says, “Show me your libido and I’ll take it,” instead of “and I’ll show you mine,” it’s time to look for a used Sphinx and a pile of camel dung to bury collective liberal egos and elect new freedom loving psyches.
