There seem to be several horrors in the papers every day, which we are not able to speak out against, except in ways that attract no publicity and do us no good.
A mother was apparently jailed for speaking to her child in the street, having been forbidden to see it because social workers and the judge think that what she is suspected of saying to her children (when considering their complaints against their father) may cause them great emotional harm. As if the judge, or anyone else, has any idea what constitutes 'emotional harm'.
A psychiatrist's report on the mother contains the judgment that her "willingness to listen and agree with the children's complaints has undermined any attempts made to provide better management of the children." But why should it be the state's job to "manage children", or to decide what constitutes doing it better?
The Daily Mail blames this kind of thing on the secrecy of family courts, but what difference would it make if they were not secret, but open to public comment by all and sundry who have themselves been brainwashed into a belief in society? The allegations against my father were not secret, except from me, but a very wide population enjoyed believing in them, and still does.
The only solution is not to have family courts at all, nor social workers, nor income tax which is what funds the whole nefarious business. No one expresses this point of view or puts the case in support of it, and my suppressed and strangled unrecognised independent (real) university continues to be prevented from doing so.
Modern academia is corrupted by the prevailing ideology. Corruption usually implies financial incentives or bribery although this is not in fact necessary. But actually it is true of modern ‘universities’, which are corrupted by the money which they receive from taxpayers and others, as a reward for subscribing to the ideology, and also for imposing it upon the individuals who fall into their power.
As Andrew Alexander pointed out semi-realistically a couple of weeks later in the Mail (20 May), it is not the motivation to acquire money on the part of agents of the collective which leads to the corruption of modern society, but the interest in power over other people’s lives which can be enjoyed by those who administer ‘public money’.
