Unique Investigator of Human Nature

The Lollypop Factor

The Lollypop FactorSigmund Freud didn’t hesitate. In his book Civilization and Its Discontents his first sentence declared:

“It’s impossible to escape the impression that people commonly use false standards of measurement—that they seek power, success, and wealth for themselves and admire them in others, and that they underestimate what is of true value in life.”


Professor Freud dedicated the rest of his book to point out how civilization distorts people’s nature. Freud warns us that this distortion may be promoting the end of our specie. All this was published in 1930.

Now, almost eighty-five years hence, Dr. William E. P. Fairmont has published his book The Lollypop Factor. In it he states:

“It’s no secret that the alienated “human” being has distanced himself from nature, like he has distanced himself from his own nature, and has proceeded to destroy the essence of life systematically, as he has shown that he “likes” to destroy himself masochistically.”

Dr. Fairmont demonstrates that the progressive separation of so called “humans” from their senses in favor of the likes of electro-mechanical contrivances; focus on external body and facial image to artificial extremes; manipulation of feeling and thinking with drugs, medicinal and cybernetic “health miracles,” empty “superior education” titles (diplomas); and overpowering political trickery, has practically made these people into “lollypops.” That is, no feeling—no discernment—no grace—no compassion etc. just a round head formed with cheap material hardly capable of any expression worth noting.

Freud has been turning over in his grave for years now. Fairmont’s Lollypop Factor reports some of the consequences of what Freud sensed was in the offing in 1930. To boot, Dr. Fairmont puts forth a potent solution in favor of preserving life.
