Dead in Haiti Embalming is uncommon for the poor. Sit in the grave and wait 36 hours to ensure that their loved one is actually dead Cut the body open Inject poison into the heart. Discreditable Stigma An aspect of the self that one perceives would drive others away if they were to discover it. Goffman’s criteria: o Perceives himself as deviant in a way that is not obvious to others o Fears that, if anyone knew of the deviance, the results would be socially disastrous George Simmel (1858-1918) Isolation, insofar as it is important to the individual, refers by no means only to the absence of society. One of the first once to explore sociology Have you ever been completely surrounded by other human beings, yet felt completely along? How important do you think catastrophic events are to the person you ultimately become? “We are social creatures who generally do need interaction.” Dual Self-Concept You obey social norms, you are a well integrated human being (for the most part) Yet there is a part of you, a dark part of you, which fantasizes about all sorts of evil things. Have you ever fantasized about doing something just plain evil (assault, murder, torture) 2 Jeffrey Dahmer (the Milwaukee Cannibal) 1960-1994 17 victims over 15 years Cannibal Necrophile Pedophile “I just didn’t want him to leave” Dahmer hated sleeping alone The Zombie Potion o Rum and Coke, Coffee, sleeping pills One for you, two for me o He got very drunk, couldn’t handle some of the stuff he was doing Dahmer tried to make a zombie o He drilled a hole in the head of his victims and poured sulfuric acid or boiling water in o The 24 year old Cambodia boy incident Dennis Nilsen (The Muswell Hill Murders, the Kindly Killer, the British Jeffery Dahmer), 1945- 15 victims over 5 years Necrophile “I just lay there and a great peace came over me. I felt that this was it, the meaning of life, death, everything.” Similarities They both took polaroids of their victims 3 Enacted an intense and violent fantasy world upon real others They needed so suppress their inclination to see these other men as real, living other people In order to enter the fantasy realm, they needed to use alcohol and drugs to quiet their generalized other. 4
