Consider Modern Western Law and Welfare.
Modern welfare produces “children without fathers” in the effort to compassionately assist “mothers who have ‘lost’ their husbands”. This effort embodies the rhetoric of “sacrifice”.
“Justificationself(concupiscence())” is “sacrifice to assist mothers(state of purchasing votes with taxpayer’s money(while craving to appear compassionate))”
Each child grows up not knowing how to generatively “modify her relation to her mothers and adopt the norms that come from relating to father” (ah, the shopworn Oedipus complex). Instead, the modification comes when the child tries to make “friends” with her equally “Lord of the Flies” cohorts. She adopts the norms of the Lord of the Flies. She shoplifts. She sells drugs. She sells her body for drugs.
Enter the Law. The Law is prepared to sacrifice this “victim” in the course of establishing order.
The “victim” settles out of court for a couple of years in jail. The lawyers say that she owes a “debt” to “society” for her crimes. But is she not rather a scapegoat – a substitute – for the real consequences of a failed policy of the Progressive central government?
Modern Law answers Modern Welfare with another nested form:
“Pay the debts for your crime, which contains a rhetoric of sacrifice (the state of shifting attention from the real consequences of a failed Progressive policy (while craving to appear to serve justice))”.
In this example, the Progressive government has exacted the livelihood of the other.
The Law – a product of a history of conscious awareness – strikes at the head of the criminal-victim-serpent while the Welfare-Serpent – a product of the history of unconscious cravings for an ideal world – strikes at the heel-weakness of the lawyers: their ability to use the law to shift attention from failed Sovereign policies and in doing so, appear to be serving justice.
