force. The core of authoritarian power had to be child abuse, but not necessarily theviolent or criminally punished kind, as you will see.In 1991, I re-published the booklet,
Brainwashing: A Synthesis of the RussianTextbook of Psychopolitics.
In this devastating 1930s account, it is clear that Russia, justlike Germany, knew the evil art of subduing the mind. Shadow governments arepreceded by an epidemic of personal and public defamations of noble heroes,demoralization of the youth leading to irresponsible parenting, relationships andunwanted children. An atmosphere of fear, uncertainty and strategic shocks will keeppeople in line no matter how old they become. Maturity rarely outgrows suchconditioning. In fact, seeing and struggling with it can cause a hopeless depressionand/or an ultimate decision to side with the bully.* * * * *Because I never look at today through yesterday’s eyes, I perceive everything afresh,every day anew. It is as though I see everything and everyone for the very first time everyday, as they are now. As I perceive things and people in each moment, I also do sowithout resentment—so that I discern without judging. There is love in such discernment.When you add resentment, however, you turn healthy discernment into unhealthy judgment, and you remain entangled with what is happening now, long after it has fadedinto the past and even from your conscious memoryFrom here on, slowly but surely, imperceptibly, your life begins turning upsidedown and becomes the reason why this submissive or rebellious infantile conditioning istransferable from the villains of the past to the personal and political thugs of the present.It has taken over 68 years for me to uncover everything you’re about to discover in aflash of light. Whatever patient endurance is, if you will seek that gift, your mind willbecome clear, your body will be made well, and soon you will prosper in everything.Instead of being changed by the world around you, you will change the world around youfor the better.All too many families are dictatorships with the children compelled to take on theidentities of either parent, who in turn grow up to be parents doing to their children whatwas done unto them, albeit unconsciously. What power does any child have against suchsoul-robbing impatience? None!! Like it or
not, see it or not, misery and suffering comedown to us hypnotically through the generations and will continue to do so until the spellis broken by learning to give up resentment altogether. Do not wait too long to break thespell and make your stand. The longer you procrastinate in dealing perfectly withimperfect people, the more your personal world will close in. Then there will come apoint of no return where it is too late to stand up as it was in the Holocaust.From experience it should become clear that we can be redeemed only by somethingmysteriously beautiful within us all—something that has been repressed by a lifetime of injustice we never knew how to handle. Mistreatment of children in familiesexponentially begets child abuse, accounting for the inordinate number of subservientpeople in every nation, for whom cures are light years beyond the scope of insights and
