Re: The Century of the Self

@AT I wasn't questioning your authority, or asserting mine; I was questioning what you said, because I think it's confused and mistaken. What do you want? A degree certificate? Academic references? I'm not claiming authority. I'm someone who thinks you're wrong about something. I'm sorry if it comes...

Re: The Century of the Self

AT, I loved this series when I saw it in 2002 and it has been a major inspiration in my life. Firstly because Adam Curtis is brilliant and shows how serious ideas can be made into thrilling and educational art. Secondly because it made me think more about the word 'self', which as you point out is i...

Re: The SES and Regional Schools in England

Its not part of human nature to accept responsibility because it does not make evolutionary sense. Any group or person will try and avoid responsibility and use power to get the best for themselves. Who has taken responsibility for the wars of the past millennia, the damage caused by invasions of n...

Re: Another Guru in Deep Trouble

JAMR, These extended lectures are not appropriate for a discussion forum. You don't seem to want to communicate, but only to hold forth and enjoy the sound of your own sonorous voice. All I was trying to do was disprove your statement that morals are entirely relative - which wasn't hard, as it's a ...

Re: The SES and Regional Schools in England

to refer to David Boddy and Shantananda Saravati in the same sentence is classic SES Do tell, Woodgreen. Is it some kind of SES habit that you've noticed to include two different names in one sentence? Oh look, I really don't want to get your goat. I've made my point, you don't agree. OK fine.

Re: Another Guru in Deep Trouble

Sometimes, as we say here in the UK, the Rupert Murdochs of the world do get their comeuppance. This is a joke. Yes, just a joke! You miss the point. Cults are just human institutions and reflect the way people are. Some are more extreme than others, but vary in degree rather than kind. Morals are ...

Re: Another Guru in Deep Trouble

JAMR, If we are talking about netiquette, then personally I do find your posts extremely long-winded, if you don't mind me saying so. This has improved a little of late through your suffering attacks, unpleasant as I'm sure that is, that you had to respond to. If you are going to write so much, it w...

Re: The SES and Regional Schools in England

Woodgreen, Calling me 'false', 'one of them' etc. is a personal attack. I questioned some of the things you said because I thought they were unjust (like tarring David Boddy with the Andy Coulson brush), but I didn't attack you . If you can't bear anything you say to be questioned, don't publish it.

Re: The SES and Regional Schools in England

Woodgreen, You're quite right that I don't campaign against the SES. Why should I do that? As my comments on here make plentifully clear, I have ambiguous feelings and views about the organization. I appreciate this forum because I can express those views sometimes. I know many of the people involve...

Re: The SES and Regional Schools in England

Woodgreen You're missing the point which is that your recent posts refer to David Boddy and to Shantananda Sarasvati in ways that are defamatory - ie, you're slandering their good names without any evidence. If you stuck to the facts I would have no problems - I would back up anyone who made true as...

Re: The SES and Regional Schools in England

I totally agree with what you say, Bonsai. Threats of law suits are a overreaction and thus a sign of its inability to communicate with people. I'm not sure how real the threats are - I mean, it didn't happen to Hounam or Hogg when they published SECRET CULT. It didn't happen to anyone who has poste...

Re: The SES and Regional Schools in England

In the light of Bluemoon's capitulation I'm wondering if I might get a phone call to threaten me against posting on the Forum ( specifically against the NW School?). Cannot wait to see what their false legalise could be. On the bigger picture, doesn't David Boddy have some similar history to the Ne...

If my daughter was spending time with people I was concerned about, I would go and meet them for mysel...

Re: Just for fun...really?

Bluemoon, I missed your post on the previous page. Sorry about that. I've identified myself previously on this forum, and DL and others know perfectly well who I am. Having been involved in the London School for 20 years, much of that with DL as level head, I feel I know quite a bit about the organi...
