Education Alone is Just Another Illusion

Actually, education alone is just another illusion. Resolving childhood repression is the only long-term solution for people to stop following blindly political leaders. And that is a lot more difficult!!! 

"I wonder how the high colleges managed to produce so many high asses." Paracelsus

Alice Miller explains beautifully  in her book For Your Own Good: hidden cruelty in child-rearing and the roots of violence page 42 and 43: "Just as in the symbiosis of the "diaper stage," there is no separation here of subject and object. If the child learns to view corporal punishment as "a necessary measure" against "wrongdoers," then as an adult he will attempt to protect himself from punishment by being obedient and will not hesitate to cooperate with the penal system. In a totalitarian state, which is a mirror of his upbringing, this citizen can also carry out any form of torture or persecution without having a guilty conscience. His "will" is completely identical with that of the government.

Now that we have seen how easy it is for intellectuals in a dictatorship to be corrupted, it would be a vestige of aristocratic snobbery to think that only "the uneducated masses" are susceptible to propaganda. Both Hitler and Stalin had a surprisingly large number of enthusiastic followers among intellectuals. Our capacity to resist has nothing to do with our intelligence but with the degree of access to our true self. Indeed, intelligence is capable of innumerable rationalizations when it comes to the matter of adaptation. Educators have always known this and have exploited it for their own purposes, as the following proverb suggests: "The clever person gives in, the stupid one balks." For example, we read in a work on child raising by Grünwald (1899): "I have never yet found willfulness in an intellectually advanced or exceptionally gifted child" (quoted in Rutschky). Such a child can, in later life, exhibit extraordinary acuity in criticizing the ideologies of his opponents--and in puberty even the views by his own parents-- because in these cases his intellectual powers can function without impairment. Only within a group--such as one consisting of adherents of an ideology or a theoretical school--that represents the early family situation will this person on occasion still display a naïve submissiveness and uncritical attitude that completely believe his brilliance in other situations. Here, tragically, his early dependence upon tyrannical parents is preserved, a dependence that--in keeping with the program of "poisonous pedagogy"--goes undetected. This explains why Martin Heidegger, for example, who had no trouble in breaking with traditional philosophy and leaving behind the teachers of his adolescence, was not able to see the contradictions in Hitler's ideology that should have been obvious to someone of his intelligence. He responded to this ideology with an infantile fascination and devotion that brooked no criticism.”

It's sad to witness all the time people falling for the illusions that formal education, talents, money, and fame is the path to freedom -- these things alone just reinforces the walls of people's emotional prisons.

Having special talents is wonderful and it’s okay to cash in your talents for a living, but when people hide behind their talents, fame, and money to hide their own personal truth and keep themselves and others distracted from the truth and facts -- then you are misusing your talents -- and contributing for the lies to spread and silently or covertly you are part of all the violence and atrocities we are witnessing in our world. So if people think they are better than others, because they have special talents, they are being delusional.

Bird's Eye View

Comments from the sharing of the article  Inside the mind of a workplace sociopath on Facebook

Sylvie Imelda Shene Yes, I have worked with a few sociopaths many times and after I published my book, I was the target of a mob of sociopaths at my job of nine and half years. The author missed a profession, sociopaths and psychopaths also love the mental health and helping professions, they use memorized intellectual and conceptual knowledge to impress, fool and manipulate the emotionally blind clients and public.
" If you’re singled out as a target – as an enemy – they won’t stop until they’ve torn you down, feeling no empathy whatsoever for any collateral damage that ensues."

I dance with the Lucifer. 

Monica Chelagat Absolutely spot on Sylvie. Yes, in my struggles to find much-needed support I discovered heartless professionals even within the institution, with evidence of severe mobbing totally ignored. She did even want to see and hastily warned me of paranoia. I recall feeling betrayed. I trusted my feelings and used other other channels that saved me from total destruction.

Sylvie Imelda Shene Me too, Monica. I have been betrayed and ignored by the mental health professionals. Most of these very well written articles and books describing the truths about sociopaths and psychopaths are written by narcissists, sociopaths, and psychopaths, and in real life, if they witness someone being the target of a mob of sociopaths, they look the other way, and cowardly stay silent or they join the mob and they use their conceptual knowledge about psychology to help regress the target to the state of the child and gain total control over their victims and destroy them. The sociopaths and psychopaths in the mental health and helping professions are the most dangerous.

Monica Chelagat Perhaps you've got to experience to believe it. But isn't it (paradoxically) wonderful to have a bird's eye view over humans?. Occasionally I feel so discouraged as I note the vastness of the epidemic of sociopathy. In addition, the institutional professional, in my case, implicitly joined the mob and became dangerous for me as one word if doubt on my mental stability would have labeled me as the sick one officially. I was angry at her and above all disgusted. She earns a high salary playing double games at her convenience to maintain her job.

Sylvie Imelda Shene Yes, sociopathy/psychopathy is an epidemic, they are everywhere! And yes it’s nice to have a bird’s eye view over humans and since my experience with a mob of sociopaths at my job of nine and half years that tried very hard to shoot me down, they forced me to fly even higher and now I have even a better view over humans, but it’s pretty lonely, I’m flying solo most of the time, but happy to be free!!! smile emoticon:-) And they inspired my next book Reenactment. I’m not surprised the mental health professional in your institution played a double game, that has been my experience also, that’s why sociopaths in the mental health profession and helping professions are the most dangerous because they are the most deceiving. Just like I wrote in my book, A Dance to Freedom page 172 “My liberation has definitely given me added protection against sociopaths! Resolving childhood repression is the vaccine against the charlatans of the world who exploit those who are still emotionally blinded by the unresolved, repressed emotions of the children they once were. ...I’ve removed all the barriers of false morality and am totally free to experience all my feelings, take them seriously and decide whom, if anyone, to share them with. I’ve faced my past and can deal with my present circumstances in the context of growing awareness instead of childhood fears.”
Me too I don’t have much hope for humanity, but if my books help liberate one soul, it makes my hard work and efforts all worth it. I feel like I have been working undercover for a lifetime to study human behavior. Humanity just like the Titanic is heading towards an iceberg to commit mass suicide. I’m trying to warn them, but they just look at me stone-faced and all I can do is wave goodbye to them! What makes me most sad is the innocent beings they take with them to suffer unnecessarily, like small children and animals. frown emoticon:-(

I posted the comment below on the attached picture on a page about psychopaths, but my comment got deleted! I know most pages on Facebook about psychopathy, narcissism, and sociopaths are created and run by narcissists, psychopaths, and sociopaths themselves. And by deleting my comment it proves my suspicion to be true! Otherwise, why would he feel threatened by my presence and comment?! Because they know I'm a seeing and feeling person and I can't be fooled by their very well articulated disconnected half-truths. They are afraid my presence will wake up their followers and of losing them! because like all narcissists, sociopaths, and psychopaths feed of others emotional blindness.
"Yes, psychopaths are among us everywhere! I worked with a mob of them for nine and half years. They were all hiding behind a false self, acting as if personality, pretending to be good people, but after I published my book, their true nature came out from hiding. And they started a very well orchestrated psychological warfare to try to get me to self-destruct, if I had not truly resolved my childhood repression, I know without a doubt I would not have survived of being the target of a mob of sociopaths/psychopaths. Anyone else would have been driven to hurt themselves, others or both. They are pure evil because they try to manipulate others to act out their own violence. They are all a bunch of cowards." Psychological Warfare

Secrets to a Long Life

Comments from the sharing of the article below on Facebook
This 90-Year-Old Lady Seduced and Killed Nazis as a Teenager
Monica Chelagat In this interview, I found this outstanding. It is, for many people, a way to cover your own childhood trauma.
QUESTION: "Truus worked through her war trauma partly with the art that she made. How did you do cope?
ANSWER: "By getting married and having babies. And I often babysat Truus' children as well, because she was very busy. ...."

Monica Chelagat Sylvie note the question and answer from this lady on how she coped re her trauma..

Sylvie Imelda Shene Sad... unfortunately having children is how many people unconsciously deal with childhood traumas. That's how many people get to live long lives by making the vulnerable feel what they themselves can't feel. These words by Alice Miller come to mind: " Individuals who believe that they feel what they ought to feel and constantly do their best not to feel what they forbid themselves to feel will ultimately fall ill---unless, that is, they leave it to their children to pick up the check by projections onto them the emotions they cannot admit to themselves." 

Most People’s Love is Nothing But a Farce, a Sham, and a Façade

Monica Chelagat I read the interview carefully, she and her sister had a horrible life. There is a question on her father and her response is heartbreaking to me but she had no emotions about him, neither angry nor sad given the type of man he was, an irresponsible man who didn't care about them. In fact she says at the end of the response that 'He loved' them... Such a difficult life and she lived to 90! Perhaps the secret of a long life is to 'cut off emotionally'.. Here it is: Quesion: Where was your father?
Answer: My mother had divorced him, which was pretty unusual for that time. She was just fed up one day – we lived on a large ship in Haarlem but my father never made any money and didn't pay anything for the barge. But it wasn't an ugly divorce or anything – he sang a French farewell song from the bow of the ship when we left. He loved us, but I didn't see him that often anymore after that.'

Sylvie Imelda Shene My first thought when I read her talking about her father and that he loved them was: if he was capable of “love”, he would have made sure, he was in their lives and be present emotionally. Just like Alice Miller wrote in the introduction of her book The Body Never Lies “ As long as the children allow themselves to be used in this way, it is entirely possible to live to be one hundred without any awareness of one’s personal truth and without any illness ensuing from this protracted form of self-deception. A mother who is forced to realize that the deprivations imposed on her in her youth make it impossible for her to love a child of her own, however hard she may try, can certainly expect to be accused of immorality if she has the courage to put that truth into words. But I believe that it is precisely this explicit acceptance of her true feelings, independent of the claims of morality, that will enable her to give both herself and her children the honest and sincere kind of support they need most, and at the same time will allow her to free herself from the shackles of self-deception.” 

Maybe one of the secrets to living a long life is to be disconnected from one’s own truth and feelings, but it’s done at the expense of others and the next generations. When I was a kid I used to say to myself: the pain stops with me and I was willing to die than passing it into an innocent being. I much prefer resolving my own childhood repression to have a chance of living a long life than living a long life at the expense of others. These words by Alice Miller also come to mind: “".Am I saying that forgiveness for crimes done to a child is not only ineffective but actively harmful? Yes, that is precisely what I am saying. The body does not understand moral precepts. It fights against the denial of genuine emotions and for the admission of the truth to our conscious minds. This is something the child cannot afford to do, it has to deceive itself and turn a blind eye to the parents’ crimes in order to survive. Adults no longer need to do this, but if they do, the price they pay is high. Either they ruin their own health or they make others pay the price – their children, their patients, the people who work for them, etc."
