Krieg der Geister: pragmatism vs idealism
Circumcision removes sensitivity. Those who are circumcised as infants do not perceive what sensitivity they lack and do not have the sense of its effects. Paedocircumcision causes insensitivity to its consequences. Only indirectly can lost sensitivity be known. The effects of a properly done paedocircumcision are as impalpable as a missing prepuce is. The subjective intangibility of circumcision and of its effects is normal. The significance of paedocircumcision evades to its subjects. The lack of alertness to paedocircumcision and to its effects is one of its trademarks. The very nature of the mental effects of paedocircumcision is such that it helps their own concealment. The reasoning and science affected by paedocircumcision are impervious to its mental effects.
