‘The Making Of Them’ Nick Duffell (Starvation with Kaolin and Morphine) http://books.google.co.uk/books?id=jRNVLgfJHKkC&pg=PA154&lpg=PA154&dq=Preparatory+School.+Kaolin+and+Morphine.&source=bl&ots=tVpRMR9mQj&sig=mqIWTBRqnfzXcvj7xq_sHXLv_KY&hl=en&ei=zffaSZeIM4GUjAf52YG-CA&sa=X&oi=book_result&ct=result&resnum=1 Very difficult to remember (only the blank and comforting – moments). Hundreds of girls heavily sedated in UK care homes during the 1970s and 1980s may be at risk of having children with birth defects, the BBC has found. http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/7985912.stm What else went on? In the name of a, convenient – something or other: ‘the mind boggles’!
At present (locked within the circle or circus), we all have to ‘put up with’ – ‘an infantile situation’.
The Infantile Situation
‘Becoming human is a process and not some event’
(martyrdom and unseen libidinal ties)
"In every primitive (anthropological anomie/anomy – anomic, bricoleurs or Bricolage – pre-logical) tribe we find the medicine man in the centre of society and it is easy to show that the medicine man (sometimes: a leader, politician, doctor, evangelist, priest… celebrity or royal, i.e., one who knows what is best for all others) is either a neurotic or a psychotic or at least that his art is based on the same mechanisms as a neurosis or a psychosis. Human groups are actuated by their group ideals, and these are always based on the infantile situation. The infancy situation is modified or inverted by the process of maturation, again modified by the necessary adjustment to reality, yet it is there and supplies those unseen libidinal ties without which no human groups could exist. The medicine men are the leaders in this infantile game and the lightning conductors of common anxiety. They fight the demons so that others can hunt the pray and in general fight reality." (‘fight reality’, as reality (science) could be most unpalatable, to most or some people: depending on their culture and education i.e., knowledge of reality, not – ‘myth or theology’, superstition…so on…) Geza Roheim ‘The Origin and Function of Culture’. Ref, modern – Christian (Sainthood and Martyrs) and Islamic or Muslim – ‘rewards’ of/in/being (a) martyr, or the martyrising of something or someone) ‘martyrdom and unseen libidinal ties’: others in folk tales, Dawkins’s ‘Hoodwink’d with Faery Fancy’, so on… At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” He called a little child and had him stand among them. And he said: “I tell you the truth, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me. Matthew 18:1-5. Ref, ‘The protracted helplessness of the new born and the consequent uncritical submissiveness to authority’.
