I spoke with a woman the other day about my book. She was very interested and as usual had never heard of project paperclip or MKULTRA and didn’t know that the Nazi SS was an occult fraternity that called themselves “warrior monks.” When she came to the realization on her own of the complexity of the issue given that generational entrapment is an intentional means of complicating the possibility of a rescue she asked, “What can be done to help them get out?” The best reaction we can hope for from anyone hearing about what is going on for the first time is that they express an interest in what can be done about it. Remember my response to the vet on the street? It was, “Yes, I believe you, but I don’t know what to do about it.” The problem is not really that people don’t care. The situation has been intentionally created to be this complex, and people don’t know. I told her that the first step is notifying people like herself. There are laws that need to change and resources need to be made available, but that can’t happen until the public is aware that there is a problem. We have rape crisis centers and domestic violence shelters, but the complexity of those trying to escape generational entrapment is much more complex. It is trying to run from the mob, who were, and are, family. My family knew my name, social security number, mother’s maiden name, blood type… and they were sure to remind me of this fact. Before rape crisis centers there had to be a public acknowledgement of the need for rape crisis centers. This woman’s response was much more heroic than my own. I did not even have to grab her by the wrist. She asked me what needed to be done, but there is a danger of putting even the concerned citizens back to sleep if they feel it is hopeless and nothing can be done. We have had ritual abuse Task Forces in Los Angeles and Utah, why are they no longer funded?
There is much to be done, but before we can even begin the public needs to be aware and have an accurate understanding of the complexities of the issue, and especially how it can and will affect all of us personally if we choose to ignore it. Therefore, I have decided to step outside my comfort zone and offer a free public lecture series and invite the public to join the Compassionate Warriors who will change this world for the better.
I personally have the characteristic of the typical writer type. I’m a bit of a recluse. I have been accused of writing to avoid talking to people. I responded to this accusation with, “That’s not completely true. I’m not that afraid of people.” I enjoy a stimulating intelligent conversation, as long as I know I covered all the important points and my presentation was spot on, or I’m just chatting with a friend. Here is what I hope for, if I fall short, let it be known that I am a work in progress:
Harold: You sure have a way with people.
Maude: Well, they’re my species!
