But a powerful measure of desire for aggression has to be reckoned as part of their instinctual environment." Freud goes on: "The existence of this tendency to aggression which we can detect in ourselves and rightly presume to be present in others is the factor that disturbs our relations with our neighbors and makes it necessary for culture to institute its high standards.
Civilized society is perpetually menaced with disintegration through this primary hostility of men towards one another." Traditionally, aggression is a "masculine" trait. Women are supposed to be retiring and demure. But Mrs. Oros pressing the detonator in Charleston challenges that stereotype, as does the new female aggression evidenced in the assassination attempts by Lynette Fromme and Sara Jane Moore. The reality is that the aggressive emotional drive is present in all human beings.
The challenge to society has been to channel that aggressive energy into constructive, activity to blowing up unneeded bridges rather than crowded airport lobbies. It doesn't begin under control. One need only look at the destructive capacity of the 2-year-old to be reminded of that. Indeed, I've often said, not too facetiously, that we needn't have developed the atom bomb if we just turned the 2-year-olds loose on the world. The "terrible 2s" have temper tantrums that are magnificent explosions, limited only by their small size and muscular capacity.
In a frustrated rage, the 2-year-old would like to destroy the world and freely vents that rage insofar as he can. Though that open expression of rage must be brought under control as the child grow up, most people continue to experience a vicarious pleasure in the sudden, forceful release of aggressive energy which occurs in an explosion. So it is that the fascination with explosions and destruction can be traced to some basic emotional forces in our personality. Out of control, the fascination can be deadly! Dr. Menninger invites your comments and questions.
Write to him care of the Post-Dispatch. Because of the volume of mail, he cannot answer each Individually but will handle questions of general interest in his column. On Monday evening, Dec. 29, 1975, 11 persons were killed outright and 75 others injured in a powerful bomb blast at New York's La-Guardia Airport. "A senseless act," said the President.
But why? Why do people do such things? What is the sense? Of course, we hear the misguided rationalizations used by terrorist bombers all over the world Weathermen, IRA fanatics, Palestine Liberation Front guerrillas. They say it is to frighten and intimidate, to draw attention to their cause and to give retribution for reputed wrongs done them. But there's more to it than that. Their acts are an expression of rage, a destructive aggression which has gone beyond civilized bounds and which prompts our sense of outrage. We are appalled at the apparently unprincipled destruction of people and property.
We think such acts must be the result of warped minds. Yet, are the rest of us really so different? Certainly many people are fascinated by explosions. That was obvious to me when I stepped outside at midnight on New Year's Eve. For at least 30 minutes or more, there was the constant bang-bang of firecracker blasts occurring all over town. And on Sunday morning, Nov.
23, 1975, 10,000 people gathered on the banks of the Kanawha River in Charleston, West watch an explosion demolish an old bridge. The Charleston "Daily Mail" attracted widespread attention for the event and sponsored a "Blow up the Bridge" contest to select the person to press the detonator. The actual blast was viewed not only by the assembled multitude in Charleston, but by the nation, courtesy of the television networks. As described by the "Daily Mail," "The blast set off by Mrs. (Barbara) Ores (contest winner- issued a thunderous boom and carved the bridge into 60 pieces, reducing the rusty hulk to a crumpled heap of steel girders protruding slightly from the water." All this reminded me of my uncle's favorite essay, "Civilization and Its Discontents," by Sigmund Freud.
In it, Freud observes: "The truth is that men are not gentle, friendly creatures wishing for love, who simply defend themselves if they are at 6 BIG DAYS STARTS MON. NEW ARRIVAL 60" WIDE 1-7 YD.

VINYL UPHOLSTERY Financial Planning "I've run across a number of people who say they offer financial planning, but invariably they earn their living from another, related source of income," the banker said.
Almost without exception, the insurance man or woman who professes to practice financial planning has insurance to sell. The broker who recommends an investment program is ready to set it up. The financial planning program offered by a bank usually is financed by the sale of bank services the program generates. Although such an adviser may have only the purest of motives, his major interest almost invariably will dominate any financial plan that he devises because it is his major interest. One financial planning service that purportedly provides nothing but advice is offered by the First Wisconsin Trust Co.
of Milwaukee. (One can suppose, however, that the bank would not be adverse to setting up a trust account if the plan called for it.) "We never sell tax shelters," Executive Vice President Blaine Rieke told me. "We're convinced that the counseling service fee should carry the service." It certainly should. The annual fee for the First Wisconsin service usually runs between $3000 and $3500 a year. It is based on the total time invested in the account by the firm's professional staff.
Generally, these experts have a legal or tax and accounting background. Most often the fee is paid by the individual's employer as a fringe benefit (in which case the fee per employe would be lower). But the trust company does have a number of accounts that are bought and paid for by an individual whose financial affairs are being planned. As a general rule, however, the service is not affordable by those earning less than $30,000 a year. Does this mean that only the rich can afford professional financial planning? Not at all.
Note that the First Wisconsin experts have a "legal or, tax and accounting background." You can and probably should employ this same expertise. Anyone who owns property should have a will, and the very act of talking to an attorney about your will should marshal the legal considerations necessary to begin a sound financial plan. A good estate lawyer in the process of gathering the information necessary to draw the will of a young married couple, for example, will be able to tell them how property ownership should be assigned. Your will should be updated every few years. When this is done, legal questions concerning your growing family and increasingly complicated financial picture can be tackled.
This will not be free, but neither will it be an annual expense. It will require a few hundred dollars at most. In the meantime, you will have an attorney who is familiar with your financial affairs and, therefore, ready to give informed advice on individual considerations as they arise. As to the adviser with a tax or accounting background, every individual or family with financial planning questions should have a good public accountant who is willing to sit down for an hour or two and begin such a plan, then talk again from time to time as questions come up. An accountant who works for a number of employers is considered a public accountant.
To find one, ask persons who engage an accountant on a part-time basis for recommendations. Fees for both the attorney and the accountant should be discussed in advance. But if you choose carefully, don't worry. Such professional help should more than pay its own yay.
