Re: Note to Americans

Thank you for providing a place to post it, Dennis. I actually came to the site in hopes of locating some old information I may have left here on psychiatry and have nothing to add to this thread, but your response is appreciated. The interviewer is Paula Flowe. Nobody works any harder or gets in pe...

Re: Note to Americans

I will quit posting Paula's messages here when she is done in Austin. Public discussion of this issue really has been quashed, however, I was unable to find a single mention of HR 5628 anywhere in the news. It seems no one else is talking about it, or doing anything at all. * If You Are Down With Ma...

Re: Note to Americans

We're not doing very well here. I'm unaware of no ongoing public debate about school corporal punishment or HR5628, especially on any nationwide level. Frustrating since according to the survey Bernard cites, there are only four states in which any sort of majority sanction the idea of school beatin...

Re: Note to Americans

What's great in that survey is that it shows more than three-fourths of us already want corporal punishment out of schools. Thanks , Bernard, that could really come in handy. It seems to me that if the US ever signs any UN treaty at all The Convention for the Rights of the Child ought to be it. The ...

Note to Americans

We have a "moment" happening, a huge one. HR5628, the Ending Corporal Punishment in Schools act was introduced in late June. This covers public as well as private schools. Facts regarding it copied from TheHittingStopsHere: • Every 20 seconds during US school hours an American school child is beaten...

Re: Failed "Phoenix Order"…

L2Eb6OigpVM&feature=related And as Christopher Hitchens points out, almost all danger to freedom of speech today comes from social pressure, not government. From 'groupthink', I suppose. From his perspective as a writer he says government itself hasn't much yet bothered suppressing speech, that in ...

Re: Failed "Phoenix Order"…

Cesar, I think it's gonna be okay. Not to say there's nothing to worry about. I just have a good feeling, overall. Long-term, even medium-term. The fight all along has been between freedom and bondage, truth and lies. It's a damned hard thing to trust human beings. It's damned easy to argue that we ...

Re: Failed "Phoenix Order"…

Cesar, I haven't much more than glanced at this thread but wanted to tell you in case you visit it again: I had reason the other day to look at the Wikipedia article on the trauma model of mental disorders http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trauma_model_of_mental_disorders and got the idea that you were i...

Re: Is the tide turning?

Freedom is very important and not just an empty phrase used by presidents. You have to take it, no one will give it to you. Not out here in the real world, they won't! Sons of bitches! If I could express one opinion quickly, less than half thought out: the only business any of us has trying to 'inf...

Re: Is the tide turning?

Dennis, It interests me that Carl Rogers, I think, is quoted in one of my encyclopedias saying something like "Early in my career I found myself running out of junk I'd been taught to tell my client. I discovered then that sitting there going 'mmm-hmm' and pretending as though I were interested did ...

Re: Is the tide turning?

Hold it. I thought medication worked as well as sugar pills... Oh wait: therapy don't rot your teeth. I get it. In the long run are therapists' bills less depressing than dentists' though? No, just kidding. I wouldn't want to take peoples' hope from them (there is no God there is no God) (going to A...

Re: Miscellaneous Video

I ran a search here on "Bulgaria" before deciding to write about this video. Apparently it's not been mentioned or discussed: "Bulgaria's Abandoned Children", Kate Blewett directed, aired by the BBC and posted to Googlevideo fourteen months ago. It deserves a strong trigger warning: "may not be suit...
