Re: Miscellaneous Video

Slacker Uprising looks interesting. I'm gonna check it out. TRAILER for Slacker Uprising: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TJEtX9m2J8k The last post there is from June 25 and comments are often just random irrelevant blurbs. The site owner says quite clearly at the top of the page: "I'd like to assure...

Re: Miscellaneous Video

No unverified claims for the effectiveness of primal therapy outside of the "Personal Stories" sub-forum. Of course, I shouldn't have restricted that to primal therapy. There are other therapy methods - apart from primal-regressive - which address childhood maltreatment and trauma. As far as I know...

Re: Miscellaneous Video

But what about the cults in the form of traditional schooling? The cults on the working place in many corporations? That's where real brainwashing takes place. Not to mention the role of the parents in child-rearing. If a child is not allowed to be critical, to question, and gets punished or threat...

Re: Miscellaneous Video

The recent post lambasting the Debunking site that I alluded to, made the bogus accusation that the site author advocates medication in place of primal therapy. No, he doesn't. The peer-review system isn't perfect. It tends to resist new findings which upset the apple cart of established explanatory...

Re: Miscellaneous Video

Did anyone ever make a video of this 1970's cult with a belief system based on dream interpretation & psychology? In the real world, almost everyone is blind to their own cranky beliefs.... especially trauma-rooted beliefs concerning salvation/healing. It's a million times easier to see what's crank...

Re: For D.R.B., Wherever You Are

Harigata, I wouldn't say you hijacked the thread because DRB didn't respond. He (or she?) didn't have a user account and hasn't returned since registration became compulsory. So anything goes. It has turned into an interesting discussion. I guess by Hubbard you mean Dianetics, which has a lot in com...

Re: For D.R.B., Wherever You Are

Harigata, thanks for your frank and honest reply. It seemed the topic was mainly about how advanced societies turn citizens into semi-robots and worker-ants. He has partial knowledge. Enough to make money on it. Don't forget the money. Never forget the money. He has a home on Malibu Beach.... a plac...

Re: For D.R.B., Wherever You Are

Harigata, you finished your post with an off-topic aside.... The whole world has conspired against Primal Therapy, including the ‘Prophet’ Janov himself. When all nice ideals and the preaching of great truths become tiresome, in through the door come Mephistopheles, with a think bundles of greenback...

Re: Stuck

Hi harigata. Is that OK to fucking say this here? 'Cauase in most places that'd be a fatal social fuckup. Tired of life, wish I was dead. To tell you the truth, I often wish there was an easy and painless way to say "Goodbye cruel world" once and for all. I'm a coward.... don't want to risk waking u...

Recruitment drive

Thanks for the invitation, but the idea of doing frustrating work for no pay doesn't appeal. You've linked to your "little wars" at least twice before.... they make Wikipedia look like a place where battles could go on from now until doomsday. Biological psychiatry.... no doubt the controversy could...

In the hard sciences, like physics, chemistry and physiology, there are areas of knowledge which can be reliably demonstrated by replicable experiments. Other fields of study labeled "science" aren't that solid. Psychological problems are a real phenomenon, but very few of them are legitimately the ...

Forgive me for not getting fired up about Bunge.... an Argentinian philosopher and physicist! To go to sleep at night some people count sheep. I count the names of philosophers. So I didn't take a look at your second link until today, assuming it was more of the same. It turns out your friend John M...

Cesar: Thanks for the positive remark. Regarding primal therapy.... Janov's explanation for the root cause of psychological problems sounds similar to Alice Miller's views.... but I don't buy the idea that Janov's techniques are a crucial element in healing.... techniques that no other empathic ther...

What type of therapy does Alice Miller really favor./ I guess it wouldn't be primal therapy, but what would it be? Sounds like you haven't read all the posts. The answer to your question is very, very simple. Alice Miller favours the support of an enlightened witness who doesn't deny that parental ...
