> The Infantile Situation UK http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/uk/8041232.stm Ref, Geza Roheim. The welcomed end to the propaganda and inherent silly ridiculousness’s of PC-ness’s and Britishness, by our MP’s with some more appalling examples (The ‘leaders’ in GB). Ref, ‘The Neurophysical Hypothesis’ And ‘The Psychological Hypothesis’ b) The protracted helplessness of the new born and the consequent uncritical submissiveness to authority. d) The discovery of and the mind splitting fear of death. The unpalatable truth (we hide it,. See, Google – the ‘infantile situation’ is hardly mentioned or mentionable) of the infantile situation, and our inability to cope with, or even, consciously recognize the libidinal (those unseen – mothering ties – in the ‘libidinal ties’ ‘The Origin And Function Of Culture’ of Geza Roheim’s). The ties that have formed all our social systems and culture – mostly, the more ancient (GB) or tribal through long ages of maturation are ‘inherently closed systems’, and the – apparently, less-liberated or ‘liberal’ ones that give only a little way forward, if any way forward: to the fruition of new ideas (new ideas that can come only from freedom). Ref, ‘The Long Childhood’ Bronowski and ‘The Clever Imbeciles’ of Koestler’s. The birth of "The strategic survival personality" (the – ‘strategic person’ – a state that is static; all time consuming and very stressful).

What is the working class dream?
While some people dedicate their lives to escaping their working class backgrounds others have no interest in climbing a class ladder, says Laurie Taylor in his weekly column. Ref, ‘Toff Down Pit’ Kit Frazer.
(A cleric living and working among miners and who has worked at the coalface, stated on the ‘BBC World Service’ in an interview on the 26th of January 1984, "That the group solidarity was their ethic. They had little regard for the concept of individuality. That was why anyone who offended against the group solidarity was outlawed and despised and could legitimately be ill-treated." The most interesting part of Frazer’s experiences, concerns the almost unbridgeable gap between his background and education and that of the miners. He came to admire the quick fluent banter (evangelicalism), but was often frustrated that the miner’s conversation was observational (shallow), rather than analytical (deeper). So many conversations are, with sometimes, great annoyance and shallowness – day, today, trivia, so on… Sunday Times 1985. Article regarding – Kit Frazer’s book,’Toff Down Pit’. The Roman Stoic philosopher Seneca (2BC – 65AD) wrote, "Religion is recognised by the common people as true, by the wise as false, and by the rulers as useful," and said, "The time to live is now", something believed by all modern day humanists.)
Time for the law to tackle discrimination against non-religious people:-
The British Humanist Association (BHA) has briefed all MPs and Peers ahead of the Second Reading debate on the new Equality Bill, which will take place in the House of Commons today. The BHA has already been working closely with Parliamentarians ahead of the Bill’s publication, and has now published, in a briefing, its key recommendations which aim to promote equality between all people, whatever their non-religious or religious beliefs. Naomi Phillips, BHA Public Affairs Officer, said, ‘There are some exciting opportunities within this Bill for us to try to affect some real changes to the law on matters relating to specifically to humanists and other non-religious people. Especially important for us will be to prevent discrimination by religious organisations that are working under contract with public authorities to provide public services.’ Read more on our website
Why? Europe, and full integration: could be the much better bet for the UK, as we need to reduce the ‘infantile situation’ – in those powers of our monarchy, church (involvement in schools) and the ‘state’; reducing them, right down to its very lowest minimum involvement, with the UK’s current and appalling ‘infantile situation’ and all the great inequalities (class, religiosity, wealth, so on…) http://shamedagain.blogspot.com/ Vote: LibDem: for a way out of ‘The Infantile Situation’!
