Dialogue

30. IX 2020

The pinnacle of human evolution, the ultimate manifestation of civility, is the human ability to engage in a dialogue, to listen to & respond to the others. The structuralist deconstruction of mental illness consists of unwind of the evolutionary process. Mental illness is evolution in reverse. During it’s course, unwinding starts from the top by shutting down the ability to engage in a dialogue — the cacophony caused by the “voices” takes over; one is in constant dissensus with oneself, which incapacitates their ability to listen and respond. The regressive unwind proceeds step by step by shutting down other social & biological skills. Different mental illnesses differ by the terminal points at which the unwind stops.

Social changes that stem from cultural division follow closely the pattern of a mental illness. They start with political cacophony & degradation of the public discourse: There’s no more dialogue, just simultaneous monologues. The underlying social erosion is reflected in the level of destruction of democratic institutions & devastation of traditional forms of civility. Potential for barbarism is growing & bestialization of man is on the increase. The madness is set free. The society operates with a sanity deficit. Everybody is crazy & everybody has a gun.
