Addiction is the forbidden game.
"... m..........n is the only great habit, the 'original addiction', and... it is only as a substitute and replacement for it that other addictions, to alcohol, morphine, tobacco, etc., appear."1
Incapacity to love is the great characteristic of neurosis and the worst of its forms: narcissistic perversion.
It is first the inability to love oneself, which is results from the repression and shame of autosexuality. That can go as far as self-hate, all that out of love for repressive parents! The inability to love oneself and to love leads to treat the other as an object and to the worst abuses, paedocriminal notably. The height is sexual mutilation of minors: excision and circumcision. To top it all, repression of autosexuality is routinely accompanied by violence and humiliations that teach children the rule of might; once adults, they will practise it... The whole thing has been passed on from generation to generation since the dawn of time.
Rather than using oneself in all honour, some - there are legions of them - abuse those weaker than themselves, women and children in particular, especially in religious circles. The latter traditionally stigmatize autosexuality, since ancient times and in all civilizations. Close to the circles of power, the matter for them is encouraging natality to have cheap labour. This is the height of collective and transgenerational perversion. We even see so-called psychotherapists, the new prelates, abusing their patients; this is how Jacques Lacan seduced one of his analysands who was forty-three years younger than him.
As soon as the sexually repressed is in a position of power, the compulsion of sway of which he is a victim pushes him to abuse others.
