Go to the ML ’FFing and Jealousy’ (link: ) and read from paragraph 40 and till the end.
Quote par 40:
“40. ALL PARTIES CONCERNED HAVE TO HAVE THE FAITH FOR IT AND AGREE TO IT--IT HAS TO BE WITH MUTUAL CONSENT. Now if one does not have the faith for it and will not give consent, doesn't like it, doesn't want it, is jealous or refuses, then the other party is going to have to work on him and try to convince him and convict him and try to persuade him, so that he will be convinced and persuaded and agree and consent.”
As most probably will agree, this above citation is rather good, that is, compared to what follows in the rest of the letter. Yes I know the iron fist still clearly visible underneath.
What initially was to be a purely voluntary thing, i.e. “it has to be with mutual consent” escalates into pressure, from there into threatening… to take away from the poor man everything he’s got, family and all and send him away empty, unless he agrees to send his dear wife for prostitution.
And what was the man’s crime? He was obeying his God given apprehensions.
Indeed Berg’s Law of Love in action.
