MURIAL LAWRENCE HAROLD Q. ,an ex-serviceman, is studying law. To concentrate, he demands absolute quiet In his home. Mrs. G., who works as an office secretary, is growing restive under the strain. she ^ents the absence O f their baby daughter who lives with grandparents t o spare her father distraction b y her crying. She says the day nursery which cares for their older child warns that he shows evidence of "nervous disturbance." "If I try to discuss the situation with my husband," she whites, "he becomes enraged. He says that we don't appreciate his efforts to secure our futures." The children certainly wouldn't j appreciate the efforts. They arcj interested in security today, not tomorrow. And very wise they are, too. For inflicting current misery in the IY..TY: of future bliss is martyrdom s favorite technique for camouflaging anger. The future bliss, like Mr. G.'s law degree, is the irreproachable alibi for justifying our present neglect and disregard of those \vho love us. Oh. we suffer along with them, because that's part of the deal. If we groan loudly enough about our own agony, nobody dares mention his. Like Mr. G., we dispose of anyone else's need* by making such dramatic production* of our own. Psychiatrist Dr. Karl Menninger was an astute and experienced student of martyr behavior. In his book, "Man Against Himself," he talks at length about the martyr's characteristic "insensitiveness to the suffering ot loved ones. Among modern martyr type» he lists the businessman who sacrifices his family's need of him to "success" ambitions; scientists and explorers who discard closs human ties to undertake dangerous experiments and expeditions; revolutionaries who use inflamed devotion to Great Causes to imperil their own safety and that of their families; housewives who overwork for everything-just-so to make everyone around them feel guilty and burdensome. He speaks right out about the "unconscious pride and satisfaction" felt l;v these people in depreciating and ignoring those who love them in the name of some Glorious Purpose. Actually, Dr. Menninger is defining the evil of fanaticism. I think Mr. G. is a victim of it. So I am urging his wife to try to persuade him to seek professional help. Study is not so important as discovering whether he wants a !r:v; decree or wants to afflict his family. Until he knows which he wants, any action he takes will continue to he oppressive and confusing to himself, as well as to his family.
