The non-calculative nature of AFFECTIONATE behavior is offensive to the technocratic state of consciousness--- because technocrats relate responsibility to fulfilling expectations through controlled/controlling behavior. This means that responsible behavior is dependent upon calculating the likely consequences of all alternative courses of action and selecting the alternative which will maximize "good" and minimize "evil". Since AFFECTIONATE behavior is non-calculative, technocrats can not perceive it as responsible. Since the technocrat's behavior flows from the presumption of the knowledge of good and evil, it generates alienation, including the repression of AFFECTIONATE behavior. The generous nature of AFFECTIONATE behavior is offensive to the technocratic state of consciousness--- because the emotionally insecure technocrat tends to seek security in POSSESSIONS and winning competitions. Instincts which prompt unconditional giving of one's possessions and self along with unconditional acceptance of others and their acceptance---are instincts which threaten security based upon POSSESSIONS and winning; especially if the security of winning requires that there be a loser. The subjective nature of AFFECTIONATE behavior threatens the technocrat because it makes it impossible to objectively certify the behavior as appropriate according to legalistic guidelines---thus threatening the framework by which the technocrat achieves acceptability and ultimately salvation. The technocrat thus seeks to objectify AFFECTIONATE behavior through intellectual studies and analysis. Affection's promptings thus need to be brought under full control in order to preserve the technocratic culture and society. Understanding those promptings in exclusively objective/analytic terms is an essential step to acquiring that full control. Scholarly work on AFFECTIONATE behavior is thus required to analyze it into its elements, atoms and elementary particles. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
