Other questions about "Remainder"

Q: What does "harder for the remainder, and where impossible—the fate of the outcast, or, more likely, death." mean?

The social problem in primitive tribes as well as most civilized and unfree societies becomes this, what to do with the young males, their aggression, their sexual instincts: in every way they must be broken and subsumed for the benefit of the tribe. This is more or less easy for the majority, who lack life force in any significant quantity, harder for the remainder, and where impossible—the fate of the outcast, or, more likely, death. You fool yourself if you imagine that “young males are needed for protection from external threat.” In fact most societies of the settled, primitive and as well as civilized, are more than willing to accept the risk of submission to an alien tribe.

I remember this passage.

As I’m sure you’re aware, the grammar in this book is deliberately awful. You’re not going to gain a lot out of expecting it to make perfect sense.

He’s essentially saying that there are three levels of difficulty when it comes to socialising young men out of their aggressive behaviour.

The majority “lack life force” and are therefore easily subsumed.

For most of the others it is a more difficult task – the reminder – but then you get a handful who are impossible to integrate into the existing modalities. They cause too much trouble, too consistently.

Therefore the society reacts convulsively by either throwing them out – making them outcasts - Or killing them.
