Beyond Sacred Cows and Scapegoats: Displacement, Ideology and the Future of Democracy

 

– by Brian D'Agostino, PhD, International Psychohistorical Association

 

Wednesday, May 30th, 9:00 am - 9:50 am

Abstract:

In this presentation, the author will examine ideology as a link between large scale historical processes—including revolution and the evolution of capitalism—and psychodynamics. Illustrating these relationships using case material from the United States and Europe since 1500, the paper examines the role of ideology in legitimizing and delegitimizing institutional arrangements, and the psychological roots of ideology in displacement, early childhood trauma, and punitive parenting.  I conclude with the institutional and psychological conditions for democratization in the 21st century.

 

Learning Points:

At the end of this educational activity, its participants will be able to:

1) discuss how ideologies function publicly to legitimize institutional arrangements and the power of political and corporate leaders;

2) analyze idealization of military power and big corporations as displacement of feelings of idealization towards punitive parents;

3) analyze hostility towards political scapegoats as displacement of childhood rage originating in corporal punishment and verbal abuse.
