With us, some children are urged to express their anger. So that part of their shadow becomes visible, appears in broad daylight. Booth: This sounds like an antidote to the problem of stuffing things into the bag. Bly: The planners intended it as an antidote. Yet the plan has not worked very well. I’m not sure that the expression of the sexual material in the young has worked out very well either. The problem is this: whenever a kindergarten child expresses violent anger and acts it out, it’s as if the electrical impulse makes a path in the brain down which the anger can go even more easily next time.
Those great sweeps of snow that stop suddenly six feet from the house… Thoughts that go so far. The boy gets out of high school and reads no more books; the son stops calling home. The mother puts down her rolling pin and makes no more bread. And the wife looks at her husband one night at a party and loves him no more. The energy leaves the wine, and the minister falls leaving the church. It will not come closer— the one inside moves back, and the hands touch nothing, and are safe. The father grieves for his son, and will not leave the room where the coffin stands.
Many American parents don’t feel their diminishment in the presence of their children as diminishment, but feel it as a new way of parenting. It’s clear how diminished Reagan feels by projecting madness, cunning, spy-genius, military superiority, and superhuman cleverness onto the Russians; and so we allow Russia, as we allow our children, to set the tone in the house, and determine our expenditures. We don’t live wholly at any moment in the fourth stage or the fifth stage or any stage; we are in all five stages simultaneously, as we send out or receive back various rejected qualities, projected substances, abandoned powers, each absent in different degrees, or retrievable with different schedules.
