The origin of physical pleasure and violence
One neuropsychologist argues that the greatest threat to world peace comes from countries with the worst environmental conditions for their children, with the greatest suppression of sexual and female sexual activity.

Human violence is rapidly becoming a global epidemic. Around the world, police face angry thugs, terrorists disrupt the Olympics, hijackers seize planes and bombs blow up buildings. Over the past year, fighting has raged in the Middle East, Cyprus and southeast Asia, and Irish guerrilla fighting continues to escalate. At the same time, crime in America is faster than inflation. In the first half of 1974, serious crime rose by 16 percent, according to fbi data, one of the biggest increases in crime since the fbi kept records.
Unless the cause of violence is isolated and treated, we will continue to live in a world of fear and fear. Unfortunately, violence is often the solution to the problem of violence. Many law enforcement officials argue that “tough” policies are the best way to reduce crime. Incarceration is a common way for us to deal with crime, not to solve the problem, because the root of violence lies in our basic values and the way we raise our children and youth. Corporal punishment, violent movies and TV programs teach our children that physical violence is normal. But these early life experiences are not the only or even primary sources of violence. Recent research supports the idea that depriving your body of happiness is a major factor in expressing physical violence. Ordinary the as –

Unlike violence, happiness seems to be something the world can’t get. People are constantly looking for new forms of happiness, yet most of our “happy” activities seem to take the place of moving natural sensory pleasures. We touch for pleasure or pain, or we don’t touch it at all. Although physical pleasure and physical violence seem to be worlds apart, there seems to be a subtle and intimate connection between the two. Violence will continue to escalate before understanding the relationship between pleasure and violence.
As a developmental neuropsychologist, I have done a lot of research on the special relationship between violence and happiness. I now believe that depriving the body of its sensuous pleasure is a major source of violence. Laboratory experiments in animals have shown that there is a reciprocal relationship between happiness and violence, and that one’s existence inhibits the existence of another. When electrodes stimulate the pleasure center of the brain, a violent animal suddenly cools down. Similarly, stimulating the center of violence in the brain can end the sensory pleasure and peaceful behavior of animals. When the brain’s happy circuit “opens”, the violent circuit is “disconnected” and vice versa. In humans, happy personalities rarely exhibit violent or aggressive behavior, and violent personalities have little ability to tolerate, experience or enjoy pleasurable activities. Whether it’s violence or happiness, everything else goes down.
The relationship between happiness and violence is very important, because certain sensory experiences in the long term create neuropsychological tendencies for later violent behavior or for seeking pleasure. I am confident that, as a result of the psychologists call “the maternal society”, namely the lack of tender loving care, caused all kinds of abnormal social and emotional behavior, is a unique sensory deprivation, body feeling deprived. The term comes from the Greek word for “body”, which refers to sensations of touch and physical movement, unlike light, hearing, smell and taste. I think that depriving the body of contact, contact and exercise is the root cause of a range of emotional disorders
These include depression and autism, hyperactivity, gender imbalance, drug abuse, violence and aggression.
These insights come from a controlled laboratory study by Harry f. and Margaret k. Harlow of the university of Wisconsin. Harlows and their students gave birth to babies from their mothers. Monkeys are kept in a single cage in the animal feeding room by looking, listening, smelling, not touching or moving, and developing social relationships with other animals. These studies and other research has shown that deprivation of body contact and body movement (not deprive other senses) will be produced in these isolated feeding animals all kinds of abnormal emotional behavior.
Although the pathologic violence observed in isolated monkeys is well documented, it is not clear how early somatosensory deprivation is associated with human violence. Numerous studies of juvenile delinquents and adult offenders show that the family background is the parent of a broken family and/or physical abuse. These studies rarely mention, let alone measure, the extent of physical deprivation, although this is often inferred from the degree of neglect and abuse. In this area is a special study of the university of Colorado psychiatrist brent, F, Steele and CB pollock’s research, they studied the three generations of family child abuse behavior of child abuse. They found that parents who abused their children were often deprived of their family ties during childhood, and that their adult sex life was extremely poor. Steele noted that women who abused their children almost without exception had never experienced an orgasm. The degree of sexual pleasure experienced by men who abuse children has not been determined, but their sex life is generally unsatisfactory. The assumption that physical happiness actively inhibits physical violence can be felt in our own sexual experience. How many people feel like beating someone up after we’ve just had an orgasm?

Freud’s influence on early experience on subsequent behavior and depressive behavior was established. Unfortunately, time and space are not allowed to discuss his differences with William empire on “the principle of transcendence”.
Suppose depriving the body of pleasure causes physical violence to require a formal system evaluation. We can test this hypothesis by studying parenting habits, sexual behavior and cross-cultural studies of physical violence. We hope to find that in order to provide infants with a lot of physical emotional human society,

The physical violence of a person who holds or carries is more violent than that of the human society which has little physical affection for the infant and the child. Similarly, human societies that tolerate and accept premarital sex and extramarital sex are less physically violent than societies that ban and punish those who are premarital and extramarital.
Cultural anthropologists have collected for the study of the human society accurately the assumption that the required data, the results of their study in RB Textor summary “cross-cultural” , easy to arrange. Textor’s book is basically a research tool for cross-cultural statistical queries. The survey provides a significant correlation between about 20,000 statistics from 400 cultural samples from the original society.
Child neglect/adult violence
Some variables that reflect physical emotions (such as touching, caressing and playing babies) are related to other variables that measure crime and violence (theft, killing frequency, etc.). Important relationships are shown in the table. Percentage Numbers reflect relationships between variables, such as high love/low violence plus low love/high violence. All tables follow this process.
There was a level of violence in societies with high or low scores on the emotional scale of infants and children. The results (table 1) clearly shows that those who give their baby’s largest body feelings of social characteristics of theft rate is low, low infant body pain, religious activity is low, killing the enemy, destroyed or torture can be neglected or does not exist. These data directly confirm that the deprivation of pleasure in infancy is closely related to the high rate of crime and violence.
Some societies take their babies as disciplinary action, while others do not. We can determine whether this punishment reflects a general focus on infant welfare and matches it with child care. The results (table 2) suggest that society, which causes pain and discomfort to infants, often ignores this. The figures do not support the prescription in proverbs 23:13-14: “do not ban a boy from punishment; If you strike him with a rod, he will not die, beat him with the rod, and you will save him from the lower world.
Of the 49 cultures, 36 (73%) accurately predicted adult physical violence from the physical changes in infants and children. The probability of getting a 73% chance is only about four thousandths of a chance.
Of the 49 societies studied, 13 of them seem to be the theoretical exception, that lack of physical pleasure can lead to physical violence (see table 3). It can be expected that a culture that places high emphasis on physical pleasure during infancy and childhood will maintain the maturity of the values. That’s not the case. Parenting practices do not predict subsequent sexual patterns. However, the difference between the initial surprise and speculation is beneficial for further predictions.
