Money Wisdom #202

"How can there be an animal which represses itself? And to miss the nature of the human disease is also to miss the nature of the cure. If the cause of the trouble were force, to 'expropriate the expropriators' would be enough. But if force did not establish the domination of the master, then perhaps the slave is somehow in love with his own chains. If there is such a deeper psychological malady, then a deeper psychological remedy is needed."

Norman O Brown Life against Death - The Psychoanalytical Meaning of History (1959) p.242
