Comments From A Facebook Post About Greta's Mother

Treating symptoms is a very profitable business – so let’s make it clear – if you are focusing on a symptom of society’s problems -- instead of the root cause --childhood repression – then you are nothing but an opportunist.

The real conversation should be about the dangers of childhood repression in our society, until this conversation starts happening in the stage of the world, no matter what Greta or anyone says, it will not stop humanity from self-destructing. If people resolve childhood repression, it will stop hurting the environment, themselves and others.

Sylvie Imelda Shene Being talented and having special gifts doesn't mean anything. It can be used to exploit others. "If a person is especially gifted, they can use that gift to reinforce the refusal of the truth and keep it away from themselves and others.

 ...It is a great mistake to imagine that one can resolve traumas in a symbolic fashion. If that were possible, poets, painters, and other artists would be able to resolve their pain through creativity. This is not the case, however. Creativity helps us channel the pain of trauma into symbolic acts; it doesn't help us resolve it. If symbolic revenge for maltreatment received in childhood were effective, then dictators would eventually stop humiliating and torturing their fellow human beings. As long as they choose to deceive themselves about who really deserves their hatred, however, and as long as they go on feeding that hatred in symbolic form instead of experiencing and resolving it within the context of their own childhood, their hunger for revenge will remain insatiable" Alice Miller

Climate change is a symptom and is just a half-truth that is being exploited by some members of the elite for name recognition and enrich themselves, so they can build their bunkers to protect themselves from climate change and other threats. 

The root causes of the world's problems are childhood repression, but I don't see that conversation starting anywhere in the stage of the world -- who wants to face their own painful childhood repression?! 

So if we really want to change the world  -- let's start the conversation about the dangers of childhood repression in our society. Greta is being exploited first by her parents and now by everyone else...

Sylvie Imelda Shene J P P, you're welcome to write in Portuguese. I have no trouble reading in Portuguese, but I have problems writing in Portuguese or in any other language because of my dyslexia, but I have less difficulty writing in English. I don't have time to respond to your last comment but here are two blogs I wrote that might answer some of your questions.

Sylvie Imelda Shene I have learned nothing ever is what it seems. What the public sees and what goes on behind the scenes are two totally different stories. 

Good for her that her bubble has not burst yet and she is still cashing in on her talents by focusing on the symptoms instead of dealing with the root causes of society’s problems. 

We live in a world of puppets and puppeteers and people are free to give their minds and souls to whoever they choose. 

The world has no lack of good speakers, performers, actors, and actresses. If lectures and sermons by well-articulated speakers worked to change human behavior -- the world would have changed many times over. 

It might help us feel better in the short term, like taking medication, but in the long run, it will make things worse. 

As I wrote in my book A Dance to Freedom: Your Guide to Liberation from Lies and Illusion Page 75, 76 and 107 

“The extremes to which people go to avoid facing the pain of their own truth — even though such a confrontation would set them free — will never cease to amaze me. “To many people,” Alice Miller says, “it seems easier to take medication, to smoke, drink alcohol, preach, educate or treat others, and prepare wars than expose themselves to their own painful truth.”42 

…too many of us think that simply praising ourselves or visualizing ourselves in perfect circumstances is all we need to do to change. Even those who realize that real change is more difficult still take the easy way out and focus their energy on getting rid of symptoms, instead of searching out the root cause. 

“There are plenty of means to combat symptoms of distress: medications, sermons, numerous ‘treatments,’ ‘miracles,’ threats, cults, pedagogical indoctrination, and even blackmail,” Alice Miller says. “They can all work for a while, but only because they reinforce the repression and reinforce the fear of resolving it.

 … A lot of money and fame comes from this business of repression because it satisfies the longing of so many grown-up children: to be loved as a good child... In the long term, we have to pay a high price for this repression.”58 The typical methods people use to search for answers — which are really ways to run away from the truth — are futile because our real, repressed story continues to attempt to make itself heard no matter what we do. Alice Miller believed that our true plight, the root cause of all our repeated problems, will keep trying to gain our attention in more extreme ways until we finally take notice.”

Sylvie Imelda Shene I was not going to make any more comments on this post, but I thought you might like reading the book The Drama of the Gifted Child: The Search for the True Self. In this book, Alice Miller shows how gifted children master the art of repression to perfection by developing a false self to accommodate the adults around and get positive attention from them.

Troubled teenagers don’t drop out of the sky and are actually more authentic, they are unconsciously trying to bring attention to the facts and the true state of affairs; and if they are lucky to find an enlightening witness to help them deal with the pain that they were born to parents that could not really love - then they might grow up into mature conscious adults. But unfortunately, our world lacks true enlightened witnesses and these troubled youth might never get the help they need. And some sadly end up in jail for petty crimes.

The world is run by gifted and once well-behaved children because most people cannot see behind their gifts and talents -- that they are corrupted to the core.  The white color crimes committed by gifted and once well-behaved children cost more money to society at large than all other petty crimes combine, but rarely gets punished in our society.
