Being masochists are very different from being slaves, because masochism is sadism directed inward, and in fact masochism is far more disturbing to the human psyche than sadism because whereas sadism is reflective of a more primal human instinct, of something that is barbaric, undisciplined, and uncivilized, masochism requires extreme patience, severe self-discipline, and intricate knowledge of oneself; masochism is that by which great conquerors are made, and all great civilizations require some degree of masochism; and masochism can just as easily turn into sadism, given the opportunity, and when the masochist becomes the sadist, it will be far more sadistic than sadists. “If I can with no compunction mutilate myself and drink boiling water, doing all this with a smile on my face, then I have nothing but utter contempt for anyone who can’t do the same.”
