They are not affirmed as persons in their own right. Jack is the ground of value. Those who are "his" are offended by not being affirmed as themselves, rather than as Jack's. Their affirmations are rationalized in terms of Jack, and thus is the technology of rationalization affirmed as more important than people. People are important only in terms of rationalizations; in terms of logical, systematic, predictable, reasonable relationships. Jack's interest in science is affirmed because it will promote productivity. Jill's appreciation for beauty is affirmed in their own right; they are all rationalized in terms of abstract grounds of value. Personal motivations, desires, and instincts are not respected. Personal values must be rationalized, else the grounds for control will be lost, and people might behave irrationally. Control will likely be lost of the unique motivations of individual people are respected independent of rationalizations. Personal pleasure is thus not legitimate motivation. Personal pleasures must be repressed, and controlable motivations must be substituted. Through such substitutions a stable society can be maintained and developed which will fulfill wise planning. This is the technocratic program for human fulfillment. Eliminate personal pleasures and provide motivations to fulfill expectations. It is very difficult to control sensory data, feelings, and emotions. For this reason it is important to divert attention away from sensory data, feelings, and emotions. They must not be affirmed, They must not be shared or discussed in personal ways which respect them. They must be brought under control through systematic and logical analysis which will help people appreciate how primitive and unsophisticated they are. Through rationalization they may be caused to serve the respectable social purpose of the culture. (c) 2005 by Paul A.
