Ferenczi (1933) observed that abusive parents’ hypocrisy—denying their aggression and blaming the child—was key in undermining the child’s developing sense of autonomy and in creating other pathological consequences, including no longer knowing what one really thinks or feels, extreme submission and hyper-responsiveness to others, loss of trust in others and oneself, and shame—all components of what he called identification with the aggressor. Identification with the aggressor is also triggered by narcissistically preoccupied parents’ emotional abandonment of their children, even without outright abuse (Frankel, 2002). Hypocrisy also occurs in sociopolitical life, under the rubric “ideology”—dogma that misrepresents reality, justifying the privilege of the powerful and the lack of it for everybody else as beneficial for all, in order to keep the oppressed in line. Vaclav Havel (1978) wrote about what he called the Soviet bloc’s “post-totalitarian society,” where, by the 1970s, power through state violence had been largely replaced by threats of social exclusion to coerce the population to internalize oppression and lies—both the method and effects of identification with the aggressor, with ideology playing a key role. This paper will explore the impact of hypocrisy on the small scale and in sociopolitical life and will examine what it generally takes for a person to be able to “live within the truth,” to use Havel’s phrase: to free oneself from the temptation to believe lies and transcend their damaging effects.
Learning Objectives: After attending this presentation, participants will be able to
