Dr Piers Brendon. Churchill College Cambridge.


            
I think, I would believe this guy! 100% Not a Politician or Police Commissioner. Listen to the Radio Interview on my last blog.
 
What a (dangerous) fiasco we have with our "Public Servants". 
 
            Piers Brendon was born at Stratton in Cornwall on 21 December 1940.
            He was educated at Shrewsbury School, Shropshire, and Magdalene
            College, Cambridge, where he read History. He took a PhD for his
            thesis on "Hurrell Froude and the Oxford Movement". This was
            published, with much modification, in 1974.

            Brendon has contributed widely to the British and American press and
            has done a good deal of work for television. He has prepared
            treatments and co-written scripts for a number of historical
            documentaries, including "Auschwitz and the Allies" (BBC), "Human
            Rights" (Thames) and "The Roots of Evil" (ITV). He was consultant
            and script-writer for the ITV’s four part film "The Windsors"
            (broadcast in 1994 and 2000). Brendon acted as script consultant on
            a three part television series called "The Churchills" broadcast on
            ITV in May 1995. He contributed to the scripts of BBC TV’s "People’s
            Century" and wrote the scripts for two documentaries based on his
            book "The Dark Valley" (the documentaries were called "Did we have
            to fight?" and "The world we lost").
            From 1965-78, Brendon was Lecturer in History, then Principal
            Lecturer and Head of Department, at what is now Anglia Polytechnic
            University. From 1979 onwards he has worked as a free-lance writer –
            books, journalism and television and from 1995 he has been a Fellow
            of Churchill College, Cambridge and was Keeper of the Churchill
            Archives (1995-2001).
            Brendon’s published works include: "Hurrell Froude and the Oxford
            Movement" (Elek, 1974); "Hawker of Morwenstow" (Cape, 1975);
            "Eminent Edwardians" (Secker, 1980); "The Life and Death of the
            Press Barons" (Secker, 1982); "Winston Churchill: A Brief Life"
            (Secker, 1984); "Ike: The Life and Times of Dwight D. Eisenhower"
            (Secker, 1987); "Thomas Cook: 150 Years of Popular Tourism" (Secker,
            1991); "The Motoring Century" (Bloomsbury, 1997); "The Dark Valley:
            A Panorama of the 1930s" (Cape and Knopf, 2000).
            The material deposited at Churchill Archives Centre by Dr Piers
            Brendon relates to two documentaries "The Churchills" and "The
            Windsors".
            This material was deposited by Dr Brendon at Churchill Archives
            Centre in February 1995 and in January 2001.
            The papers are arranged in two series, "The Churchills" and "The
            Windsors". The records were arranged by the transcript page number
            and this order has been retained.

My First family, second marriage, bringing up my 18-year-old twins, boy, and girl. I am a third generation Humanist, who has some old handwritten information and notes; collected over many years. Someone may find the articles interesting, or helpful. They could bring back a little ‘reality’, after being ‘shocked’ and ‘brainwashed’, by some malicious group, or institution (REBT Therapy). People should know better, than to do this, to our very young, and the ‘obviously’ vulnerable! Go to easily accessible, non-superstitious knowledge that is not charlatanism! https://charleslizzy.com/2011/08/06/independent-schools-inspectorate-isi-marketing-spirituality-buzzword-or-maybe-even-for-you-to-shiver-at-the-something/ The blog has given me an incentive to order my thoughts, learn, and read up again, after a few non-thinking years of (very silly) imagination and passion. Why not, get your own key to a ‘door’, customise it to suit you, and it can be, all of your very own! Don’t believe, or be led by someone else’s; inherited, stupid, and a very likely (past, and not of today’s) ‘totally preposterous reality’s’. Only some interest in the ‘really big questions’, keeps life above the level of a farce, and very little else! KEEP THINKING! Some of the posts may need some correcting. Interests: REBT Counselling, Atheism, Secularism, Humanism, Psychology, Reading, Popular Science, School Ethos, Philosophy, History, Family, Parenting, Psychology, Horse Riding, Sailing, Rescue Boat Driver, Skiing (Teppichswinger), TV Documentaries, Motorbike Cross Country Riding, Volunteer Sports Stewarding, Writing, Primitive Man, Pre-history, Social Anthropology, British Humanist Association, BHA, Meaning of Life, The Big Questions, Where am I, What am I, Why am I, Hippie Love, Knowledge, Education, Globalisation. Favorite quote: “The world belongs to those who, at least to some degree, have figured it out.” Carl Sagan, ‘The Demon Haunted World’, ‘Contact’, and other famous books DVD ‘Cosmos’. The warning of another and horrendous, “Age of Superstition”. “Isn’t there something deeply absurd in the presumption that children ought to inherit beliefs from their parents. It can be deeply damaging, even lethally divisive. A ‘them’, with an ‘against us’, mentality” – Professor Richard Dawkins. “The will to believe is stronger than mere reason in the vast majority of people” – Dr J.Brown, Army Psychologist of the 1960′s. Humans will believe in almost anything, in fact, they seek it! Why? “98% of us, trained to be just good consumers, let’s train our children to be the 2% who have their very own creativity and discernment”; quote by a famous surreal artist. “The lack of reason brings forth monsters”. “Global interconnectedness is lethal against mass religion, nationalism, racism, and other destructive memeplexes. Let us connect everybody they hate it in restrictive regimes”; from the ‘meme learning group’, Richard Brodie’s book, ‘Virus Of The Mind’ (Richard Brodie a designer for ‘Microsoft Word’). Following on, J.Bronowski, and ‘The Ascent Of Man’ TV series, and a book http://www.bbcshop.com/science+nature/the-ascent-of-man/invt/9781849901154/ with the last DVD in this series, ‘The Long Childhood’ being especially revealing. ‘Prehistory’ and the ‘Making of the Human Mind’ by Colin Renfrew, with P.Wilson’s, ‘The Domestication of the Human Species’, and Nigel Spivey’s, TV series and book, ‘How Art Made The World’, offers some further explanations.
