Sadism and Masochism

If the opposite definitions of sadism and masochism were only the preserve of books about the Marquis de Sade, the preserve only of a book by Paulo Coelho called Eleven Minutes, the preserve only of the books about and expanding 50 Shades of Grey further advertised by the Anne Summers stylised fun of fur lined handcuffs – well then, the current global situation, stemming from the sado-masochistic horrors experienced by all populations from the First World War to now, might be different.
It can’t be different however, until some simple principles can be remembered.
Opposites, in principle, are designed for a current to flow across them when they are insulated away from each other but connected together.
How does this play out in a mass situation?
It plays out by remembering the rules of the BDSM fetish power lifestyle that purports to teach adherents the “rules” of safe sex.
The basic rule is that the submissive has all of the power until it is given to the dominant and that there are strict rules of safe disengagement.
No matter how distasteful this may appear to be, it seems that there are political energy conditions that are capable of cohereing from the personal to the mass movements that are not being seen, because it is unspeakable that this basic sex energy could be harnessed in this way.
What can appear to work in a fornication equation between couples or groups in an energy experimentation with binary switches, can eventually render whole nations vulnerable to giving power to a sadistic overruling of national check and balance switches.
Sex energy has been the control factor of religions for centuries of ‘Official rule’ over populations. This control has devolved to secular governments in lawmaking around the age of consent as this applies to sex, to voting, and how under-age criminality is punished for noncompliance.
So, the sadism of the actions reverberating around the world today has an antidote. The antidote relates to the withdrawal of masochistic consent.
The antidote is in correctly identifying the elephant in our collective room.
Of course, this is not the time to judge people in their personal sexual preferences, everyone navigates through this singular global animal instinct the best way that they can.
What I’m saying here is that the herding of masses of people into enclosures of control, despite their best efforts to analyse rationally the consequences of their actions, may indicate a breakdown in the animal/rational interface that is best described by an illness model.
That illness I have described as stuck-addiction©
Love, humour, Light, laughter, the delight in play – these are the Human recovery indices with which to assess our present condition as a species and our possible journey to survival.
