Hi Keir,

Of course my putting it into practice when it seems reasonable and struggling with it when it doesn't is not what the SES would consider application. Hence my remark about not yet trying this unequivocally, and so not being in a position to say whether it's a load of bollocks.

See my response to NYC. I wouldn't have been at the school this long if it didn't work for me, on the whole. The vast majority of stuff that's been suggested to try, I've tried and found to be useful. I'm prepared to try this too. On a more personal and immediate level, when I do genuinely defer to ...

See, I don't necessarily view it as not being equal, and of course I'm aware of the problems that can arise when men treat women like property. (sidetrack - pick up "Reading Lolita in Tehran" if you haven't already; it's a great read) I guess I also don't see "common practice" as being necessarily "...

Does it have to stay next to Elizabeth's post forever? We might wanna look at setting up a roster, then.

Because until I manage to actually do it unequivocally, I'm not in a position to say whether it's a "bunch of bullcrappy". :)

I dunno, ADG. Hopefully your partner is someone whose opinion you respect, and who has a brain in their head. I'd also expect both parents to be having regular discussions about what's going on with the child/ren, since the guys working full-time are not going to be eyewitness to quite a bit of it. ...

Yeah, the discipline thing has a lot of subsets: day-to-day rule enforcement, guidance and helping with self-discipline, overarching tenets of discipline for the household, etc. It's suggested that the mother deals with the day-to-day stuff, and refers to the father for direction on the longer term,...

Frith's story is one that has stayed with me long after many others have faded. I agree that it would be great to renew a connection with her.

NYC - Apologies for assuming too much in my previous replies. By "traditional gender roles", I'm referring more to ancient traditional rather than recent modern traditional (if that isn't too much of a neon-flashing oxymoron). Much of the school's material on this (from the Shankaracharya, as well a...

Good grief. If Justice can do more than wave a red flag around and then run away, I'd be as interested as the next person in what s/he has to say, especially on the topic of SES members brushing up on hypnosis to indoctrinate people. At the moment, however, I don't have a problem with parodying the ...

Justice! regularly wears a lampshade as a hat while saucily dancing the Macarena with octogenarian war criminals.

THIS IS FACT and is not to be questioned. I have my sources, as well as reams of videotape, but I don't plan on making any of it public.

"I'd love to know what other disinformation the SES is putting out about the people they abused." Keep in mind you're dealing with individuals here, and they are dealing with individuals' misinformed and often ignorant perspectives on this stuff. There's continual reference to something that should...
