The Long-Term Effects of Adult Sibling Bullying


"We want fewer and better children who can be reared up to their full possibilities in unencumbered homes, and we cannot make the social life and world-peace we are determined to make, with the ill-bred, ill-trained swarms of inferior citizens". - HG Wells

Back To The Family


Chinese charater for family

Your children are not your children.

They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself.

They come through you but not from you,

And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.

You may give them your Compassion but not your Thoughts.

For they have their own thoughts.

You may house their bodies but not their Souls,

For their Souls dwell in the house of tomorrow,

Which you cannot visit, not even in your Dreams.

You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.

For Life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.

Khalil Gibran




On heritage and inheritance


"Good times come and good times go; men and women are broken in mind and body by the waiting, the uncertainty, the sheer physical deprivation, and join the ranks of the down-and-outers, the unemployables. No longer the rains, the soils, the personal effort on one's environment are the arbiters of the community destiny, but the job." - Stuart Chase, 1931

"Scholars long have observed that although the family unit is the "nucleus of civilization," when family interests are held to be more important than those of the individual, it can have a dampening effect on market economies." - Gregory Rodriquez

Ode To My Family

"Some of us learn control more or less by accident.
The rest of us go all our lives not even understanding how it is
possible, and blaming our failure on being born the wrong way."
BF Skinner

Why parents should 'baby' a crying infant

Perfectionism can go too far if parents intrude

After child abuse, impulses are harder to control

Psychotic disorders more likely after sibling bullying



Parents fall into the transcendental temptation if they think of themselves as Creators of their offspring.

The Binding of Isaac, Aqedat Yitzhaq, in Hebrew also simply "The Binding", Ha-Aqedah, -Aqeidah is a story from the Torah found in Genesis 22.

In the narrative, God asks Abraham to sacrifice his son, Isaac.

Abraham begins to comply, when a messenger from God interrupts him.

Abraham then sees a ram and sacrifices it instead.

The main problem of parenthood is one of possession or ownership.

Does the parent own the child or does the child own him or herself?

Humor is entirely subjective.
For something to be funny, it must ring true.
Laughter signals to others that we have a bond with them.

tribalism

Open Societies and Closed Minds

Encyclopedia of Peaceful Societies

Tribal societies: Conflict is an alien concept


"The inability of the Western world to understand the tribal and religious underpirinings of Iraq and the rest of the Arab world is of long standing. The proof is in the media coverage: "How much longer are valuable lives to be sacrificed in the vain endeavor to impose upon the Arab population an elaborate and expensive administration they never asked for and do not want." - Times of London, August 7, 1920

"People will sometimes charge me with adoring tribalism.

They say to me in effect, "If you adore it so much, why don't you just go do it and leave the rest of us alone?"

Those who understand me in this way totally misunderstand what I'm saying.

The tribal lifestyle isn't precious because it's beautiful or lovable or because it's "close to nature."

It isn't even precious because it's "the natural way for people to live."

To me, this is gibberish.

The tribal life is precious because it is tested out.

For 3,000,000 years it worked for people.

It worked for people the way nests work for birds, the way webs work for spiders, the way burrows work for moles.

That doesn't make it lovable, it makes it viable." - David Sheen



From the deepest roots of tribal society religion sprung.

Each of the Abrahamic religions arose during tense tribal times.

Religion layered onto tribalism has always advocated reciprocal altruism toward fellow kin and retribution against members of alien tribes deemed quilty of insult or injury.

A tribes mythical narrative instructs tribal members of social parameters.

Tribal life can foster a vibrant sense of social solidarity while communal effort can fill a human with pride and self-respect while motivating all to care for each other.

Tribe kinship fosters trust, loyalty, a desire to uphold individual duties and obligations in a realm of virtue in which reciprocal altruism rules kin relations.

Beware ! Tribes and tribal members are sensitive to boundaries.

An insult or injury to any individual is an offense against all tribal members, and the only honorable recourse is full compensation or total revenge !

This is an essential ethic of tribes no matter their religion.

This web site is not a commercial web site and is presented for educational purposes only.




This website defines a new perspective with which to engage reality to which its author adheres. The author feels that the falsification of reality outside personal experience has forged a populace unable to discern propaganda from reality and that this has been done purposefully by an international corporate cartel through their agents who wish to foist a corrupt version of reality on the human race. Religious intolerance occurs when any group refuses to tolerate religious practices, religious beliefs or persons due to their religious ideology. This web site marks the founding of a system of philosophy named The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie - a rational gnostic mystery religion based on reason which requires no leap of faith, accepts no tithes, has no supreme leader, no church buildings and in which each and every individual is encouraged to develop a personal relation with the Creator and Sustainer through the pursuit of the knowledge of reality in the hope of curing the spiritual corruption that has enveloped the human spirit. The tenets of The Truth of the Way of the Lumière Infinie are spelled out in detail on this web site by the author. Violent acts against individuals due to their religious beliefs in America is considered a "hate crime."

This web site in no way condones violence. To the contrary the intent here is to reduce the violence that is already occurring due to the international corporate cartels desire to control the human race. The international corporate cartel already controls the world economic system, corporate media worldwide, the global industrial military entertainment complex and is responsible for the collapse of morals, the elevation of self-centered behavior and the destruction of global ecosystems. Civilization is based on coöperation. Coöperation does not occur at the point of a gun.

American social mores and values have declined precipitously over the last century as the corrupt international cartel has garnered more and more power. This power rests in the ability to deceive the populace in general through corporate media by pressing emotional buttons which have been preprogrammed into the population through prior mass media psychological operations. The results have been the destruction of the family and the destruction of social structures that do not adhere to the corrupt international elites vision of a perfect world. Through distraction and coercion the direction of thought of the bulk of the population has been directed toward solutions proposed by the corrupt international elite that further consolidates their power and which further their purposes.

All views and opinions presented on this web site are the views and opinions of individual human men and women that, through their writings, showed the capacity for intelligent, reasonable, rational, insightful and unpopular thought.
