Violence can be seen in every area of life.
We converted people to the Christian Faith of “Love thy Neighbor” with Violence.
We cure Diseases with Violence (Opening the Body, Taking Toxic medicine), we use Violence to create Food and now we even use Violence to Enforce (!) Peace (Afghanistan, Iraq).
Violence to enforce Peace is the last invention of what a friend of mine calls the Dark Dreamers.
Dark Dreamers are people that cannot handle Love and Compassion. They are afraid to Lose Control.
To Stay in Power they have to Suppress Others. To suppress others they need Violent People (Killers, Soldiers, Food for Cannons).
Violence is a reaction to suppression and the most effectual suppression is the suppression of sexuality.
In “The History of Sexuality“, Foucault states that Western Culture has long been fixated on Sexuality.
In China, Japan, India and the Roman Empire sexuality has been seen as an “Ars Erotica”, “Erotic Art“, a special experience.
Sexuality is something to Enjoy like good food, music and theater.
In Western Society something completely different has been created, “Scientia Sexualis“, the Science of Sexuality.
It is based on a phenomenon diametrically opposed to Ars Erotica: the Confession. The pleasure of Sexuality has to be confessed and examined in every detail to find the traces of SIN.
The confession of sin creates a power relation between preacher and confessant.
Foucault writes: “We are an extraordinarily confessing society. Confession has spread its effects far and wide: in the judicial system, in the army, in medicine, in pedagogy, in familial relations, in amorous relationships, in everyday life and in the most solemn rituals; crimes are confessed, sins are confessed, thoughts and desires are confessed, one’s past and one’s dreams are confessed, one’s childhood is confessed; one’s diseases and problems are confessed”.
The main focus of the confession was on regulating the sexuality of the married couple, ignoring other forms of sexual relations.
Therefore the body of women was sexualized because of its role as a child bearer.
The concept “hysteria” was invented and seen as a result of sexual problems.
To prevent that children experience sexuality as a pleasure parents are warned about the dangers inherent in masturbation and other sexuality.
The sexuality of adults becomes an object of study and all forms of “perverse” aberrations are seen as dangers.
Foucault emphasizes that the aim of these moral codes was not to abolish all forms of sexuality, but to protect health and the purity of the race.
What can we do to stop this violence?
Don’t Confess Anymore. Talk Freely about everything you Enjoy even Sexuality and consider life as a beautiful experience.
Make Love not War.
Leave the System of Violence and join The System of Love and Compassion.
If you want to bring Peace to the World go to the under-development countries and help to build Roads, Schools, and Houses.
The people over there are Not Violent (Remember this is the Message of the Mass Media) they want to Enjoy Life Like You.
