All child molesters proclaim to love children. Being intellectually aware of his stolen childhood doesn't mean he was able to stop his compulsion to molest children. The only way to break free from the chains of repetition compulsion is to mourn the loss of childhood and consciously feel the repressed emotions within the context of our childhood. As long people go on repressing their emotions they will be driven by them sooner or later in one form or another to repeat the traumas they once suffered. Hilter too admitted of being beaten by his father.
"Out of the Prison of Confusion
“Even Adolf Hitler never denied that he had been beaten. What he denied was that these beatings were painful. And by totally falsifying his feelings, he would become a mass murderer. That would never have occurred had he been capable of feeling, and weeping about, his situation and had he not repressed his justifiable hatred of those responsible for his distress but consciously experienced and comprehended it. Instead, he perverted this hatred into ideology. The same hold for Stalin, Ceausescu, and all the other beaten and humiliated children who later turn into tyrants and criminals.
The return of the truth only begins to announce itself in the moment that we turn the tables and the word “spanked” condemns itself as heartless testimony to the disrespect and humiliation inflicted on the child. Only once we have become capable of empathizing with the feelings of the abused child we once were, and rejection the mockery and cynicism of our adult selves, do we begin to open the gates to the truth. Only then can we also stop being a danger to others.” From the book “Breaking Down the Wall of Silence” Alice Miller page 15, 16
I’m not saying MJ was a child molester, I don’t know! I would have to study his case much closer, but some signs are there and we need to listen to the voices that are coming out and believe them.
I like MJ and always felt sorry for him, because everyone around him was just exploiting him, and the parents were the ones that exploited him the most when he was a defenseless little child, for his talents and no one ever offered him real help. -- It was a tragic life -- We live in a society that just admires a person’s talents and don’t care about the person’s suffering. They just want to be entertained and distracted from their own painful truths.
It has been proved that spanking a child in the private area is sexual abuse and can cause sexual deviance on his adult life
It’s a well-known fact MJ was spanked as a child. As the cult of Jehovah's Witnesses, he was raised in, it teaches to spank children to make them obedient.
A few years ago I saw his mother on a TV show, while I was cat sitting at the community where I worked for nine and a half years, MJ’s mother ignorance was so sickening, saying that nowadays, children don’t get enough spanking and that is why the world is in such a mess and that the end of the world is near, because children don’t get enough spanking and discipline! It brought to mind the quote below by Alice Miller because it could not be truer!
“Emotional blindness can be well studied by examining the careers of sect members, Jehovah’s Witness, for example, are in favor of corporal punishment and constantly warn that the end of the world is near. They are not aware that they bear within themselves the abused children they once were, and that they already experienced the end of the world when they loving parents beat them. What could be worse than that? But the Jehovah’s Witnesses learned very early not recall their pain and to tell their children that hitting doesn’t hurt. The reality of the end of the world is constantly on their minds, but they do not know why.”Alice Miller, taken from the book “The Truth Will Set you free” page, 141
