These include scientific work, athletic achievement, humanitarian work, artistic and literary creation, climbing the corporate ladder, acquisition of money and material goods far beyond the point at which they cease to give any additional physical satisfaction, and social activism when it addresses issues that are not important for the activist personally, as in the case of white activists who work for the rights of nonwhite minorities.
These are not always PURE surrogate activities, since for many people they may be motivated in part by needs other than the need to have some goal to pursue.
Scientific work may be motivated in part by a drive for prestige, artistic creation by a need to express feelings, militant social activism by hostility.
But for most people who pursue them, these activities are in large part surrogate activities. For example, the majority of scientists will probably agree that the "fulfillment" they get from their work is more important than the money and prestige they earn.
For many if not most people, surrogate activities are less satisfying than the pursuit of real goals that is, goals that people would want to attain even if their need for the power process were already fulfilled.
One indication of this is the fact that, in many or most cases, people who are deeply involved in surrogate activities are never satisfied, never at rest.
Thus the money-maker constantly strives for more and more wealth. The scientist no sooner solves one problem than he moves on to the next.
The long-distance runner drives himself to run always farther and faster. Many people who pursue surrogate activities will say that they get far more fulfillment from these activities than they do from the "mundane" business of satisfying their biological needs, but that is because in our society the effort needed to satisfy the biological needs has been reduced to triviality.
In contrast, people generally have a great deal of autonomy in pursuing their surrogate activities. Autonomy as a part of the power process may not be necessary for every individual.
But most people need a greater or lesser degree of autonomy in working toward their goals. Their efforts must be undertaken on their own initiative and must be under their own direction and control.
Yet most people do not have to exert this initiative, direction and control as single individuals. Thus if half a dozen people discuss a goal among themselves and make a successful joint effort to attain that goal, their need for the power process will be served.
But if they work under rigid orders handed down from above that leave them no room for autonomous decision and initiative, then their need for the power process will not be served.
The same is true when decisions are made on a collective basis if the group making the collective decision is so large that the role of each individual is insignificant.
It is true that some individuals seem to have little need for autonomy. Either their drive for power is weak or they satisfy it by identifying themselves with some powerful organization to which they belong.
And then there are unthinking, animal types who seem to be satisfied with a purely physical sense of power the good combat soldier, who gets his sense of power by developing fighting skills that he is quite content to use in blind obedience to his superiors.
When one does not have adequate opportunity to go through the power process the consequences are depending on the individual and on the way the power process is disrupted boredom, demoralization, low self-esteem, inferiority feelings, defeatism, depression, anxiety, guilt, frustration, hostility, spouse or child abuse, insatiable hedonism, abnormal sexual behavior, sleep disorders, eating disorders.
Any of the foregoing symptoms can occur in any society, but in modern industrial society they are present on a massive scale.
We aren't the first to mention that the world today seems to be going crazy. This sort of thing is not normal for human societies.
There is good reason to believe that primitive man suffered from less stress and frustration and was better satisfied with his way of life than modern man is.
It is true that not all was sweetness and light in primitive societies. Abuse of women was common among the Australian aborigines, transexuality was fairly common among some of the American Indian tribes.
We attribute the social and psychological problems of modern society to the fact that that society requires people to live under conditions radically different from those under which the human race evolved and to behave in ways that conflict with the patterns of behavior that the human race developed while living under the earlier conditions.
It is clear from what we have already written that we consider lack of opportunity to properly experience the power process as the most important of the abnormal conditions to which modern society subjects people.
But it is not the only one. Before dealing with disruption of the power process as a source of social problems we will discuss some of the other sources.
Among the abnormal conditions present in modern industrial society are excessive density of population, isolation of man from nature, excessive rapidity of social change and the breakdown of natural small-scale communities such as the extended family, the village or the tribe.
It is well known that crowding increases stress and aggression. The degree of crowding that exists today and the isolation of man from nature are consequences of technological progress.
All pre-industrial societies were predominantly rural. The Industrial Revolution vastly increased the size of cities and the proportion of the population that lives in them, and modern agricultural technology has made it possible for the Earth to support a far denser population than it ever did before.
Also, technology exacerbates the effects of crowding because it puts increased disruptive powers in people's hands. For example, a variety of noise-making devices: power mowers, radios, motorcycles, etc.
If the use of these devices is unrestricted, people who want peace and quiet are frustrated by the noise.
If their use is restricted, people who use the devices are frustrated by the regulations. But if these machines had never been invented there would have been no conflict and no frustration generated by them.
For primitive societies the natural world which usually changes only slowly provided a stable framework and therefore a sense of security.
In the modern world it is human society that dominates nature rather than the other way around, and modern society changes very rapidly owing to technological change.
Thus there is no stable framework. The conservatives are fools: They whine about the decay of traditional values, yet they enthusiastically support technological progress and economic growth.
Apparently it never occurs to them that you can't make rapid, drastic changes in the technology and the economy of a society without causing rapid changes in all other aspects of the society as well, and that such rapid changes inevitably break down traditional values.
The breakdown of traditional values to some extent implies the breakdown of the bonds that hold together traditional small-scale social groups.
The disintegration of small-scale social groups is also promoted by the fact that modern conditions often require or tempt individuals to move to new locations, separating themselves from their communities.
Beyond that, a technological society HAS TO weaken family ties and local communities if it is to function efficiently. In modern society an individual's loyalty must be first to the system and only secondarily to a smallscale community, because if the internal loyalties of small-scale communities were stronger than loyalty to the system, such communities would pursue their own advantage at the expense of the system.
Suppose that a public official or a corporation executive appoints his cousin, his friend or his co-religionist to a position rather than appointing the person best qualified for the job.
He has permitted personal loyalty to supersede his loyalty to the system, and that is "nepotism" or "discrimination," both of which are terrible sins in modern society.
Would-be industrial societies that have done a poor job of subordinating personal or local loyalties to loyalty to the system are usually very inefficient.
Look at Latin America. Thus an advanced industrial society can tolerate only those small-scale communities that are emasculated, tamed and made into tools of the system.
Crowding, rapid change and the breakdown of communities have been widely recognized as sources of social problems. But we do not believe tbey are enough to account for the extent of the problems that are seen today.
A few pre-industrial cities were very large and crowded, yet their inhabitants do not seem to have suffered from psychological problems to the same extent as modern man.
In America today there still are uncrowded rural areas, and we find there the same problems as in urban areas, though the problems tend to be less acute in the rural areas.
Thus crowding does not seem to be the decisive factor. On the growing edge of the American frontier during the 19th century, the mobility of the population probably broke down extended families and small-scale social groups to at least the same extent as these are broken down today.
In fact, many nuclear families lived by choice in such isolation, having no neighbors within several miles, that they belonged to no community at all, yet they do not seem to have developed problems as a result.
Furthermore, change in American frontier society was very rapid and deep. A man might be born and raised in a log cabin, outside the reach of law and order and fed largely on wild meat; and by the time he arrived at old age he might be working at a regular job and living in an ordered community with effective law enforcement.
This was a deeper change than that which typically occurs in the life of a modern individual, yet it does not seem to have led to psychological problems.
In fact, 19th century American society had an optimistic and self-confident tone, quite unlike that of today's society.
The difference, we argue, is that modern man has the sense largely justified that change is IMPOSED on him, whereas the 19th century frontiersman had the sense also largely justified that he created change himself, by his own choice.
Thus a pioneer settled on a piece of land of his own choosing and made it into a farm through his own effort. In those days an entire county might have only a couple of hundred inhabitants and was a far more isolated and autonomous entity than a modern county is.
Hence the pioneer farmer participated as a member of a relatively small group in the creation of a new, ordered community.
One may well question whether the creation of this community was an improvement, but at any rate it satisfied the pioneer's need for the power process.
We contend that the most important cause of social and psychological problems in modern society is the fact that people have insufficient opportunity to go through the power process in a normal way.
We don't mean to say that modern society is the only one in which the power process has been disrupted. Probably most if not all civilized societies have interfered with the power process to a greater or lesser extent.
But in modern industrial society the problem has become particularly acute. Leftism, at least in its recent midto lateth century form, is in part a symptom of deprivation with respect to the power process.
We divide human drives into three groups: 1 those drives that can be satisfied with minimal effort; 2 those that can be satisfied but only at the cost of serious effort; 3 those that cannot be adequately satisfied no matter how much effort one makes.
The power process is the process of satisfying the drives of the second group. The more drives there are in the third group, the more there is frustration, anger, eventually defeatism, depression, etc.
In modern industrial society natural human drives tend to be pushed into the first and third groups, and the second group tends to consist increasingly of artificially created drives.
In primitive societies, physical necessities generally fall into group 2: They can be obtained, but only at the cost of serious effort.
But modern society tends to guaranty the physical necessities to everyone  in exchange for only minimal effort, hence physical needs are pushed into group 1.
There may be disagreement about whether the effort needed to hold a job is "minimal"; but usually, in lowerto middle-level jobs, whatever effort is required is merely that of OBEDIENCE.
You sit or stand where you are told to sit or stand and do what you are told to do in the way you are told to do it.
Seldom do you have to exert yourself seriously, and in any case you have hardly any autonomy in work, so that the need for the power process is not well served.
Social needs, such as sex, love and status, often remain in group 2 in modern society, depending on the situation of the individual.
So certain artificial needs have been created that fall into group 2, hence serve the need for the power process.
Advertising and marketing techniques have been developed that make many people feel they need things that their grandparents never desired or even dreamed of.
It requires serious effort to earn enough money to satisfy these artificial needs, hence they fall into group 2.
But see paragraphs Modern man must satisfy his need for the power process largely through pursuit of the artificial needs created by the advertising and marketing industry  , and through surrogate activities.
It seems that for many people, maybe the majority, these artificial forms of the power process are insufficient.
A theme that appears repeatediy in the writings of the social critics of the second half of the 20th century is the sense of purposelessness that afflicts many people in modern society.
This purposelessness is often called by other names such as "anomic" or "middle-class vacuity. It may be that existentialism is in large part a response to the purposelessness of modern life.
In other words, it does not fully satisfy the need for the power process. See paragraph That need can be fully satisfied only through activities that have some external goal, such as physical necessities, sex, love, status, revenge, etc.
Most workers are someone else's employee and, as we pointed out in paragraph 61, must spend their days doing what they are told to do in the way they are told to do it.
Even most people who are in business for themselves have only limited autonomy. It is a chronic complaint of small-business persons and entrepreneurs that their hands are tied by excessive government regulation.
Some of these regulations are doubtless unnecessary, but for the most part government regulations are essential and inevitable parts of our extremely complex society.
A large portion of small business today operates on the franchise system. It was reported in the Wall Street Journal a few years ago that many of the franchise-granting companies require applicants for franchises to take a personality test that is designed to EXCLUDE those who have creativity and initiative, because such persons are not sufficiently docile to go along obediently with the franchise system.
This excludes from small business many of the people who most need autonomy. Today people live more by virtue of what the system does FOR them or TO them than by virtue of what they do for themselves.
And what they do for themselves is done more and more along channels laid down by the system. Opportunities tend to be those that the system provides, the opportunities must be exploited in accord with rules and regulations  , and techniques prescribed by experts must be followed if there is to be a chance of success.
Thus the power process is disrupted in our society through a deficiency of real goals and a deficiency of autonomy in the pursuit of goals.
But it is also disrupted because of those human drives that fall into group 3: the drives that one cannot adequately satisfy no matter how much effort one makes.
One of these drives is the need for security. Our lives depend on decisions made by other people; we have no control over these decisions and usually we do not even know the people who make them.
Our lives depend on whether safety standards at a nuclear power plant are properly maintained; on how much pesticide is allowed to get into our food or how much pollution into our air; on how skillful or incompetent our doctor is; whether we lose or get a job may depend on decisions made by government economists or corporation executives; and so forth.
Most individuals are not in a position to secure themselves against these threats to more [than] a very limited extent.
The individual's search for security is therefore frustrated, which leads to a sense of powerlessness. It may be objected that primitive man is physically less secure than modern man, as is shown by his shorter life expectancy; hence modern man suffers from less, not more than the amount of insecurity that is normal for human beings.
But psychological security does not closely correspond with physical security. What makes us FEEL secure is not so much objective security as a sense of confidence in our ability to take care of ourselves.
Primitive man, threatened by a fierce animal or by hunger, can fight in self-defense or travel in search of food. He has no certainty of success in these efforts, but he is by no means helpless against the things that threaten him.
The modern individual on the other hand is threatened by many things against which he is helpless: nuclear accidents, carcinogens in food, environmental pollution, war, increasing taxes, invasion of his privacy by large organizations, nationwide social or economic phenomena that may disrupt his way of life.
It is true that primitive man is powerless against some of the things that threaten him; disease for example. But he can accept the risk of disease stoically.
It is part of the nature of things, it is no one's fault, unless it is the fault of some imaginary, impersonal demon.
They are not the results of chance but are IMPOSED on him by other persons whose decisions he, as an individual, is unable to influence.
Consequently he feels frustrated, humiliated and angry. Thus primitive man for the most part has his security in his own hands either as an individual or as a member of a SMALL group whereas the security of modern man is in the hands of persons or organizations that are too remote or too large for him to be able personally to influence them.
So modern man's drive for security tends to fall into groups 1 and 3; in some areas food, shelter etc. The foregoing greatly simplifies the real situation, but it does indicate in a rough, general way how the condition of modern man differs from that of primitive man.
People have many transitory drives or impulses that are necessarily frustrated in modern life, hence fall into group 3.
One may become angry, but modern society cannot permit fighting. In many situations it does not even permit verbal aggression.
When going somewhere one maybeinahurry,oronemaybeinamoodtotravel slowly, but one generally has no choice but to move with the flow of traffic and obey the traffic signals.
One may want to do one's work in a different way, but usually one can work only according to the rules laid down by one's employer. In many other ways as well, modern man is strapped down by a network of rules and regulations explicit or implicit that frustrate many of his impulses and thus interfere with the power process.
Most of these regulations cannot be dispensed with, because they are necessary for the functioning of industrial society. Modern society is in certain respects extremely permissive.
In matters that are irrelevant to the functioning of the system we can generally do what we please. We can believe in any religion as long as it does not encourage behavior that is dangerous to the system.
We can go to bed with anyone we like as long as we practice "safe sex". Behavior is regulated not only through explicit rules and not only by the government.
Control is often exercised through indirect coercion or through psychological pressure or manipulation, and by organizations other than the government, or by the system as a whole.
Most large organizations use some form of propaganda  to manipulate public attitudes or behavior. Propaganda is not limited to "commercials" and advertisements, and sometimes it is not even consciously intended as propaganda by the people who make it.
For instance, the content of entertainment programming is a powerful form of propaganda. An example of indirect coercion: There is no law that says we have to go to work every day and follow our employer's orders.
Legally there is nothing to prevent us from going to live in the wild like primitive people or from going into business for ourselves.
But in practice there is very little wild country left, and there is room in the economy for only a limited number of small business owners.
Hence most of us can survive only as someone else's employee. We suggest that modern man's obsession with longevity, and with maintaining physical vigor and sexual attractiveness to an advanced age, is a symptom of unfulfillment resulting from deprivation with respect to the power process.
The "mid-lffe crisis" also is such a symptom. So is the lack of interest in having children that is fairly common in modern society but almost unheard-of in primitive societies.
In primitive societies life is a succession of stages. The needs and purposes of one stage having been fulfilled, there is no particular reluctance about passing on to the next stage.
A young man goes through the power process by becoming a hunter, hunting not for sport or for fulfillment but to get meat that is necessary for food.
In young women the process is more complex, with greater emphasis on social power; we won't discuss that here. This phase having been successfully passed through, the young man has no reluctance about settling down to the responsibilities of raising a family.
In contrast, some modern people indefinitely postpone having children because they are too busy seeking some kind of "fulfillment.
Again, having successfully raised his children, going through the power process by providing them with the physical necessities, the primitive man feels that his work is done and he is prepared to accept old age if he survives that long and death.
Many modern people, on the other hand, are disturbed by the prospect of physical deterioration and death, as is shown by the amount of effort they expend trying to maintain their physical condition, appearance and health.
We argue that this is due to unfulfillment resulting from the fact that they have never put their physical powers to any practical use, have never gone through the power process using their bodies in a serious way.
It is not the primitive man, who has used his body daily for practical purposes, who fears the deterioration of age, but the modern man, who has never had a practical use for his body beyond walking from his car to his house.
It is the man whose need for the power process has been satisfied during his life who is best prepared to accept the end of that life.
In response to the arguments of this section someone will say, "Society must find a way to give people the opportunity to go through the power process.
For such people the value of the opportunity is destroyed by the very fact that society gives it to them. What they need is to find or make their own opportunities.
To attain autonomy they must get off that leash. Not everyone in industrial-technological society suffers from psychological problems.
Some people even profess to be quite satisfied with society as it is. We now discuss some of the reasons why people differ so greatly in their response to modern society.
First, there doubtless are differences in the strength of the drive for power. Individuals with a weak drive for power may have relatively little need to go through the power process, or at least relatively little need for autonomy in the power process.
These are docile types who would have been happy as plantation darkies in the Old South. We don't mean to sneer at the "plantation darkies" of the Old South.
To their credit, most of the slaves were NOT content with their servitude. We do sneer at people who ARE content with servitude.
Some people may have some exceptional drive, in pursuing which they satisfy their need for the power process. For example, those who have an unusually strong drive for social status may spend their whole lives climbing the status ladder without ever getting bored with that game.
People vary in their susceptibility to advertising and marketing techniques. Some are so susceptible that, even if they make a great deal of money, they cannot satisfy their constant craving for the the shiny new toys that the marketing industry dangles before their eyes.
So they always feel hard-pressed financially even if their income is large, and their cravings are frustrated. Some people have low susceptibility to advertising and marketing techniques.
These are the people who aren't interested in money. Material acquisition does not serve their need for the power process.
People who have medium susceptibility to advertising and marketing techniques are able to earn enough money to satisfy their craving for goods and services, but only at the cost of serious effort putting in overtime, taking a second job, earning promotions, etc.
Thus material acquisition serves their need for the power process. But it does not necessarily follow that their need is fully satisfied. They may have insufficient autonomy in the power process their work may consist of following orders and some of their drives may be frustrated e.
We are guilty of oversimplification in paragraphs because we have assumed that the desire for material acquisition is entirely a creation of the advertising and marketing industry.
Of course it's not that simple. Some people partly satisfy their need for power by identifying themselves with a powerful organization or mass movement.
An individual lacking goals or power joins a movement or an organization, adopts its goals as his own, then works toward those goals.
When some of the goals are attained, the individual, even though his personal efforts have played only an insignificant part in the attainment of the goals, feels through his identification with the movement or organization as if he had gone through the power process.
This phenomenon was exploited by the fascists, nazis and communists. Our society uses it too, though less crudely. Example: Manuel Noriega was an irritant to the U.
The U. Thus the U. Hence the widespread public approval of the Panama invasion; it gave people a sense of power. In particular, leftist movements tend to attract people who are seeking to satisfy their need for power.
But for most people identification with a large organization or a mass movement does not fully satisfy the need for power.
Another way in which people satisfy their need for the power process is through surrogate activities. As we explained in paragraphs , a surrogate activity is an activity that is directed toward an artificial goal that the individual pursues for the sake of the "fulfillment" that he gets from pursuing the goal, not because he needs to attain the goal itself.
For instance, there is no practical motive for building enormous muscles, hitting a little ball into a hole or acquiring a complete series of postage stamps.
Yet many people in our society devote themselves with passion to bodybuilding, golf or stamp-collecting. Some people are more "other-directed" than others, and therefore will more readily attach importance to a surrogate activity simply because the people around them treat it as important or because society tells them it is important.
That is why some people get very serious about essentially trivial activities such as sports, or bridge, or chess, or arcane scholarly pursuits, whereas others who are more clear-sighted never see these things as anything but the surrogate activities that they are, and consequently never attach enough importance to them to satisfy their need for the power process in that way.
It only remains to point out that in many cases a person's way of earning a living is also a surrogate activity.
Not a PURE surrogate activity, since part of the motive for the activity is to gain the physical necessities and for some people social status and the luxuries that advertising makes them want.
But many people put into their work far more effort than is necessary to earn whatever money and status they require, and this extra effort constitutes a surrogate activity.
This extra effort, together with the emotional investment that accompanies it, is one of the most potent forces acting toward the continual development and perfecting of the system, with negative consequences for individual freedom see paragraph Especially, for the most creative scientists and engineers, work tends to be largely a surrogate activity.
This point is so important that it deserves a separate discussion, which we shall give in a moment paragraphs In this section we have explained how many people in modern society do satisfy their need for the power process to a greater or lesser extent.
But we think that for the majority of people the need for the power process is not fully satisfied. In the first place, those who have an insatiable drive for status, or who get firmly "hooked" on a surrogate activity, or who identify strongly enough with a movement or organization to satisfy their need for power in that way, are exceptional personalities.
Others are not fully satisfied with surrogate activities or by identification with an organization see paragraphs 41, In the second place, too much control is imposed by the system through explicit regulation or through socialization, which results in a deficiency of autonomy, and in frustration due to the impossibility of attaining certain goals and the necessity of restraining too many impulses.
But even if most people in industrial-technological society were well satisfied, we FC would still be opposed to that form of society, because among other reasons we consider it demeaning to fulfill one's need for the power process through surrogate activities or through identification with an organization, rather than through pursuit of real goals.
Science and technology provide the most important examples of surrogate activities. Some scientists claim that they are motivated by "curiosity" or by a desire to "benefit humanity.
As for "curiosity," that notion is simply absurd. Most scientists work on highly specialized problems that are not the object of any normal curiosity.
For example, is an astronomer, a mathematician or an entomologist curious about the properties of isopropyltrimethylmethane?
Of course not. Only a chemist is curious about such a thing, and he is curious about it only because chemistry is his surrogate activity. Is the chemist curious about the appropriate classification of a new species of beetle?
That question is of interest only to the entomologist, and he is interested in it only because entomology is his surrogate activity.
If the chemist and the entomologist had to exert themselves seriously to obtain the physical necessities, and if that effort exercised their abilities in an interesting way but in some nonscientific pursuit, then they wouldn't give a damn about isopropyltrimethylmethane or the classification of beetles.
Suppose that lack of funds for postgraduate education had led the chemist to become an insurance broker instead of a chemist. In that case he would have been very interested in insurance matters but would have cared nothing about isopropyltrimethylmethane.
In any case it is not normal to put into the satisfaction of mere curiosity the amount of time and effort that scientists put into their work.
The "curiosity" explanation for the scientists' motive just doesn't stand up. The "benefit of humanity" explanation doesn't work any better.
Some scientific work has no conceivable relation to the welfare of the human race most of archaeology or comparative linguistics for example.
Some other areas of science present obviously dangerous possibilities. Yet scientists in these areas are just as enthusiastic about their work as those who develop vaccines or study air pollution.
Consider the case of Dr. Edward Teller, who had an obvious emotional involvement in promoting nuclear power plants. Did this involvement stem from a desire to benefit humanity?
If so, then why didn't Dr. Teller get emotional about other "humanitarian" causes? If he was such a humanitarian then why did he help to develop the H-bomb?
As with many other scientific achievements, it is very much open to question whether nuclear power plants actually do benefit humanity.
Does the cheap electricity outweigh the accumulating waste and the risk of accidents? Teller saw only one side of the question.
Clearly his emotional involvement with nuclear power arose not from a desire to "benefit humanity" but from a personal fulfillment he got from his work and from seeing it put to practical use.
The same is true of scientists generally. With possible rare exceptions, their motive is neither curiosity nor a desire to benefit humanity but the need to go through the power process: to have a goal a scientific problem to solve , to make an effort research and to attain the goal solution of the problem.
Science is a surrogate activity because scientists work mainly for the fulfillment they get out of the work itself.
