UK society ‘condemning’ children


http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7732290.stm

Primitive culture in Britain, primitive science, savage science: all in the state of ‘Anthropological Anomy’ – some adults, many educationalists, few parents, and a lot of sensationalist seeking smut-hounds within the media: combined with a few noisy purity-leaguers and a lot of parliamentarians.

"We have become convinced that it is better to avoid such symbolic disguisings of the truth in what we tell children and to not withhold from them a knowledge of the true state of affairs commensurate with their intellectual level". Freud. Ref, ‘The Proper Structuralised View of the World’ which is missing. I.e, not a half baked and silly education – full of the easy dogmatic answers. "In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act". Orwell. Especially, about the ‘hopeless failings of authority and government’, and that they – will have to, and in a very short amount of time, make up their own rules (very scary for the ‘oldies’). Illegal activity on a ‘massive scale’ – http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk_politics/7734712.stm (example) The same human behaviour, but much worse – today? Murder http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/sci/tech/7733372.stm See, your News any day! 

How dare anyone blame children and/or the vulnerable! 

It is the bigoted with their power politics (government and religious), vast financial frauds (bankrupting the young and vulnerable), and the various states of denial (for any change) in the appalling examples (sectarianism and divisiveness) within the Educational System. Who, then, do so much ongoing and perpetual damage to children by their example? Church Schools, Faith Schools, Public Schools – Private Schools, so on…To Tonio, My grandson, "I wish you a world free of Demons and full of light" – Carl Sagan ‘The Demon Haunted World’. "The total lack of proportion in the whole exercise gives it a weird atmosphere of unreality, as though one had strayed into a science fiction narrative and landed on a planet, in which only fear and greed were institutionalised at a global level. A planet inhabited and ruled by anthropoids with only fossilized and vestigial intelligence, and a hideous preoccupation with death". ‘The Home of Man’ Barbara Ward.

Religiosity - Homicide. Self-harm(ing) of children, young adults and the vulnerable.Speaks for itself!  Religiosity – Homicide. Self-harm(ing) of children, young adults and the vulnerable: (mass) Religiosity= (mass – more likely) a low IQ + (mass) poverty, example – Africa the most religio-istic nation.

"This is no place to enter a debate with critics the violent character of religions in general or monotheist religions in particular. I just note that I remain unpersuaded. These proposals to explain complicity are unable to account for why the churches are often approached to mediate in situations of conflict, and even less why they are sometimes successful in their efforts. In my estimation, rather than the character of the Christian faith itself, a better explanation of why Christian churches are either impotent in the face of violent conflicts or actively participate in them derives from the proclivities of its adherents which are at odds with the character of the Christian faith. One way to describe these pernicious proclivities is to speak of confusion of loyalty. Though explicitly giving ultimate allegiance to the Gospel of Jesus Christ, many Christians in fact seem to have an overriding commitment to their respective cultures and ethnic groups. Hence in conflict situations they tend to fight on the side of their cultural (racial) group and employ faith as a weapon in struggle." Miroslav Volf. Ref, Susceptibility to ‘Admiration – Celebrity Worship’, photo album, and ‘How Art Made The World’. Dr Nigel Spivey

Why Philosophy is important. Philosophy (it lies somewhere between religion and science). 

"It deals with assumptions on which a great many normal and everyday beliefs rest. These assumptions when examined critically often turn out to be insecure and sometimes nonsensical. People do not like having their assumptions and beliefs examined, it irritates them".
Lecture on Philosophy – Daddy. 

About luckyme0

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.
