BAFTA Award – Documentary – Chosen ‘Selected Groomed Abused’


‘The Making Of Them’ Nick Duffell (Starvation with Kaolin and Morphine) 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. 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’.
Chilling – now, trust your GP, Psychiatrist, Mental Health Messiah, Police, Government, Social Care Institution, Child Care Institution, and of course, the very famous ‘Dustbin Stasi’ interpreters of Anti-Terror Legislation; with a human, veterinary, custom made – psychotropic immobiliser injection! Ref, BBC Radio4 Today an interview with someone who had had one, and she explained exactly what this felt like!
Notes: Keeping us all safe and doing their jobs? Or, just fighting the (imaginary) demons, at some immense cost? And, "Political Spin" – ‘Put forth a ‘closed system of logic and an authoritarian structure that permits no feedback’ and refuses to be modified except by leadership approval or executive order. The group has a top-down, pyramid structure.  The leaders must have verbal ways of never losing’. Ref, Stanley Milgram – Torture – Rendition – Social/Culture (Stress) – Kettle-ing. Video ‘Playground for Faith and Belief’ in the UK – Children (behaviour and religio/political pawns) Politics, UK The Unloved
UK Parliament; Party Politics; Traditions; Monarchy; Church of England; House of Lords; Lawmaking; so on… : falls – well within, the ‘Infantile Situation’

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! 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 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.
