The rape of noblewoman Lucretia
HISTORY: Lucretia is a legendary figure in the history of the Roman Republic. According to the story, told mainly by the Roman historian Livy and the Greek historian Dionysius of Halicarnassus (who lived in Rome at the time of the Roman Emperor Caesar Augustus), her rape by the king's son and Lucretia's suicide, were the immediate cause of the revolution that overthrew the monarchy and established the Roman Republic. The incident kindled the flames of dissatisfaction over the tyrannical methods of the last king of Rome, Lucius Tarquinius Superbus. As a result, the prominent families instituted a republic, drove the extensive Tarquin family from Rome, and successfully defended the republic against attempted Etruscan and Latin intervention. The rape has been a major theme in European art and literature. (source)
We watched the 1986 movie "Extremities" the other night, staring the now deceased Farah Fawcett. It was a powerful movie on the subject of individual terror and rape. It explored the raw emotions of both victim, rapist and the hapless witnesses who stumbled on the scene. In the movie, the victim turned the tables on the rapist by fighting back and taking every opportunity to get away, or attack the attacker. In the end and even though she was not raped, she subdued the would-be rapist with a toxic spray and then used the same terrorizing tactics on the rapist as the rapist used on her. She turned from victim to attacker.
Rape is a particularly brutal crime. It not only is an invasion of the body, but it steals the victims individuality, pride, parts of memory and well being, as well as leaving the victim mentally scared for life. The rape is bad enough, but the terror leading up to the rape can be permanently devastating. The victim can be left numb, depressed, dazed, detached and inflicted with long-term psychological trauma. Constant dreams of the attack invade quiet sleep and result in frequent nightmares. The desire for social contact is diminished. Fear is a constant companion and it is by the use of fear, intimidation and threats that the rapist uses to "control" the victim during the terror leading up to and during the rape.
Gang rape is even more devastating on the individual because in most cases there is no "fighting" back, the victim being overwhelmed by the force of the "gang". The victim is helpless to reclaim her pride, her dignity and her freedom by resisting.
According to sources we consulted, there seems to be no single theory that conclusively explains the motivation for rape. The motives of rapists can be multi-factorial and are subject to debate. Several factors have been proposed: anger, a desire for power, sadism, sexual gratification, and evolutionary pressures.
We focus here on a desire for power, which to some politicians is all consuming, as is their desire for sex, which gets lots of them in trouble. As the rapist desires to control his victim (99% of all rapes are conducted by males) through fear and intimidation, so too do politicians desire to control the masses with laws and the threat of enforcement of laws, thus fulfilling their "need" for power. In contrast, a dictator needs no laws, as the dictator is the law. All the dictator needs is an enforcer, usually a loyal military, to enforce his dictates with brutality.
Subjugation of the masses can occur by two methods, 1) draconian over-regulation of every aspect of the individual's life and the rising enforcement of that regulation, or 2) by mass killings, executions, maiming, torture, false imprisonment and mock trials. In the latter, the masses know where the control is coming from and they rightfully fear the source, not un-like the victim reacting to the fear and intimidation of the rapist. In the case of the former however, control comes a little bit at a time, stretched out over a long time period, say like a hundred years or more. The masses (victims) don't recognize that they are being enslaved, until it is too late.
Americans, at least those that value liberty, have two choices in the year 2010, being 234 years after the birth of liberty. They can regain their pride, their dignity and their freedom by subduing the brutal gang rapists of the United States of America, like the heroin had the courage to do in the movie "Extremities", or they can succumb to the slowly tightening chains of draconian over-regulation, perpetrated by the gang rapists who currently hold the seats of power. For this second choice, the people of America will live in permanent fear of the "gang rapist" for the rest of their lives. Their choice will also condemn their children's lives and their grand children's lives to slavery by draconian regulation and the eventual police state it will spawn.
The first choice is the act of courage. The second choice is the act of cowards. America was once a nation of heroes. Has it now become a nation of cowards? We don't think so.
The question is, will Americans turn the tables on their domestic attacker in time, or will America forever remain the victim of the brutal gang rapist, into the foreseeable future?
