Das psicoses latentes que ameaçam o Ocidente

por Samuel de Paiva Pires, em 03.08.12

Carl Jung, The Undiscovered Self:

 

«Everywhere in the West there are subversive minorities who, sheltered by our humanitarianism and our sense of justice, hold the incendiary torches ready, with nothing to stop the spread of their ideas except the critical reason of a single, fairly intelligent, mentally stable stratum of the population. One should not, however, overestimate the thickness of this stratum. It varies from country to country in accordance with national temperament. Also, it is regionally dependent on public education and is subject to the influence of acutely disturbing factors of a political and economic nature. Taking plebiscites as a criterion, one could on an optimistic estimate put its upper limit at about 40 per cent of the electorate. A rather more pessimistic view would not be unjustified either, since the gift of reason and critical reflection is not one of man's outstanding peculiarities, and even where it exists it proves to be wavering and inconstant, the more so, as a rule, the bigger the political groups are. The mass crushes out the insight and reflection that are still possible with the individual, and this necessarily leads to doctrinaire and authoritarian tyranny if ever the constitutional State should succumb to a fit of weakness.

 

Rational argument can be conducted with some prospect of success only so long as the emotionality of a given situation does not exceed a certain critical degree. If the affective temperature rises above this level, the possibility of reason's having any effect ceases and its place is taken by slogans and chimerical wish-fantasies. That is to say, a sort of collective possession results which rapidly develops into a psychic epidemic.  In this state all those elements whose existence is merely tolerated as asocial under the rule of reason come to the top. Such individuals are by no means rare curiosities to be met with only in prisons and lunatic asylums. For every manifest case of insanity there are, in my estimation, at least ten latent cases who seldom get to the point of breaking out openly but whose views and behavior, for all their appearance of normality, are influenced by unconsciously morbid and perverse factors. There are, of course, no medical statistics on the frequency of latent psychoses – for understandable reasons. But even if their number should amount to less than ten times that of the manifest psychoses and of manifest criminality, the relatively small percentage of the population figures they represent is more than compensated for by the peculiar dangerousness of these people. Their mental state is that of a collectively excited group ruled by affective judgments and wish-fantasies. In a state of "collective possession" they are the adapted ones and consequently they feel quite at home in it. They know from their own experience the language of these conditions and they know how to handle them. Their chimerical ideas, upborne by fanatical resentment, appeal to the collective irrationality and find fruitful soil there, for they express all those motives and resentments which lurk in more normal people under the cloak of reason and insight. They are, therefore, despite their small number in comparison with the population as a whole, dangerous as sources of infection precisely because the so-called normal person possesses only a limited degree of self-knowledge.»

Este excelente excerto retirado de "T.U.S." de C. Jung, sobre o seu pensamento analítico relativo às graves psicoses que afectam uma elite minoritária, é o retrato fidelíssimo daquilo que estamos presenciando desde há pelo menos cinquenta anos (para não recuarmos vários séculos) relativamente às psicopatias, no caso de quase todos os dirigentes mundiais com particular destaque para aqueles que comandam as chamadas democracias.

E o pior de tudo, além do perigo constante que eles representam, é o sofrimento excruciante que estes psicopatas provocam nos povos, todos os povos, na maior parte deles provocando genocídios quase diários, sem que os mesmos tenham poder ou força suficientes para alterar o que quer que seja, tal o processo maquiavélico como as sociedades modernas foram organizadas e as respectivas populações doutrinadas, isto para que as referidas elites possam dispor de campo livre d'actuação. Está claro que a estas só lhes convém que os povos se mantenham conformados e calados, dir-se-ia que drogados dado o seu aparente estado comatoso. Escusado será dizer que tal estado deprimente,  inibindo-os de se revoltarem, significa ouro sobre azul para as elites.

Eu iria até mais atrás, caríssima Maria, diria que é o que testemunhamos pelo menos desde a Revolução Francesa.

Exactamente Samuel.
Obrigada a si pelos brilhantes extractos do pensamento racional discursivo de Jung, que vai aqui colocando.

Claro, não havia elites exploradoras antes da Revolução Francesa, foram exactamente criadas pela revolução, de certeza.

Tsk tsk, revisionismo histórico.

Se fosse só o "Ocidente"... mas não, é universal. Isso da cultura ocidental é só tradição.
