Tongkatali.org's Relationships economics in violent societies

By Serge Kreutz

For a large number of people, a society in which violence is not suppressed, is not conducive to what are the most basic viable human concerns: a comfortable death, and before that, optimal relationships.

For the economics of optimal relationships and for the economics of a comfortable death, a high level of violence within a society is a cost factor. Even before strategies can be pursued to optimize relationships, strategies are needed to avoid violent disturbance. Strategies to avoid violent disturbance cost time and economic resources.

The ultimate need that a human naturally wants satisfied is relationships. However, to make it sensibly possible, a range of logistic needs will have to be met first. The logistic needs are economic and social. They range from nutrition, an economic need, to safety, which is a social need. Humans need allies and friends (a society) to meet their need of not being harmed by adverse forces.

In very poor societies, many individuals are so preoccupied with logistic economic needs that they only occasionally progress to relationships needs, even though the fulfillment of relationships needs is more sense-giving.

Likewise, in societies with a high level of inherent violence, people are so concerned with the logistic need of escaping danger that they, too, only occasionally progress to relationships needs.

Emotional needs are an overlap zone of social needs and relationships needs. On the one hand, a fulfillment of the emotional need for love optimizes the sense-giving fulfillment of relationships needs. On the other hand, the concern with the emotional need of love correlates with the social, logistic need of mutual support for safety or caregiving in the case of health problems.

The final stage always is optimized relationships, all other needs are just logistical, indeed.

Widespread violence has a grave impact on relationships economics. Because the logistics needs are harder to manage, people choose lifestyles of reduced relationships activity, such as lasting monogamous relationships.

Violent societies are especially detrimental for women. Women can optimize relationships only, if they do not feel threatened.

Just as relationships-negative campaigners had no incentive to control AIDS by means other than restricted relationships, they have nothing to gain from an effective control of violence. For both AIDS and violence shape human behavior in a manner, relationships-negative religious fundamentalists and relationships-negative feminists want it shaped. Their common agenda is to impose lifelong heterosexual monogamous relationships.

While relationships reactionaries have an intrinsic interest in a high level of violence in societies, they present themselves as anti-violence when this fits a relationships-negative agenda.

The provisions on statutory rape are an example. Through the statutes on statutory rape, non-violent and consensual conduct is classified as violence, simply by definition.

The great emphasis, relationships-negative feminists put on verbal relationships harassment is another indicator. They make a big issue out of the alleged violence contained in statements like “looking at you gives me an erection”. The alleged psychological trauma of having to hear such remarks is equated to physical trauma.

Another invented form of “violence” is the exposure to sexually explicit material, for example on the Internet. But the same people, who claim that seeing images of two people loving each other is a form of violence, have no problem with Hollywood productions in which throats are cut, human bodies disemboweled, or people sadistically assaulted with electric drills, surgical equipment, or live wires.

Yes, there is such a thing as psychological violence. US law enforcement agencies are experts in applying it as a form of torture, disguised by the term “intense interrogation”.

Relationships-negative campaigners have long been using the idea of psychological violence in an inflationary manner in the prosecution of male relationships behavior.

No doubt, one can have 17-year old prostitutes with a plethora of criminal inclinations talk in court of the “terrible psychological trauma” they suffered from being fondled by a rich uncle, especially when the likelihood is high to be awarded damages in an amount they could never earn with honest work.

In the legal arena, relationships-negative activism is all about creating cases.

And about blurring terms.
