Bruce Deminger on Cultural Insanity

Once, not so long ago, you could call a woman who healed with herbs and helped neighbors give birth a witch, and she would get dragged from her house, tried by a brainwashed, terrified jury, and set on fire in front of a cheering mob. 
Also not long ago, you could accuse a black boy of looking at a white girl wrong and he would be ripped from his family and lynched.
In another recent embarrassing moment of our history, neighbors were encouraged to report each other for hiding Jewish families and when they did, the families were put on trains headed to poison gas showers. I lost half my family this way.
These episodes of cultural insanity were not aberrations, they are the toxic legacy of our civilization. There have been no reparations. Witch is still  a pejorative in all the books we  read to our children and everyone knows we still live within an obscenely racist system. 
Only our profound capacity for denial allows us to believe that we are better than our ancestors were, and  these times are different.
The good news is Gaia’s not putting up with this bullshit anymore. The beautiful truth is that this is our chance to make a quantum leap in our evolution.
But this will only happen if we step into the light of our best selves and stop letting ourselves be pitted against each other in polarized camps framed by our fears.
We’re not evolving until we quit calling each other names like sheeple and conspiracy theorist. Until we stop mistaking each other for enemies and buying the rhetoric that makes a virus into a terrorist. 
A virus is a integral part of nature, carrying a vital message.
Either we return to gratitude for all we have, or we give it all up. Either we surrender illusions of supremacy and stop trying to be the  boss of everything and quit pretending we’re gods in control of the forces of decay and creation, and recover our place in the web of life and death and rebirth, with respect for all our relations, or we lose the  world we live in, the greatest gift we have been given.
We are, after all, only small animals inside an immense and complex mystery. 
And it’s our humility, not our arrogance, that will save us.

I have joined with many parents affected with the surreal , yet accepted issue of child abuse via Pathogenic Parenting / Domestic abuse. As a survivor of Domestic Abuse, denial abounded that 3 sons were not affected. In my desire to be family to those who have found me lacking . As a survivor of psychiatric abuse, therapist who abused also and toxic prescribed medications took me to hell on earth with few moments of heaven. I will share my life, my experiences and my studies and research.. I will talk to small circles and I will council ; as targeted parents , grandparents , aunts , uncles etc. , are denied contact with a child for reasons that serve the abuser ...further abusing the child. I grasp the trauma and I have looked at the lost connection to a higher power.. I grasp when one is accustomed to privilege, equality can feel like discrimination.. Shame and affluence silences a lot of facts , truths that have been labeled "negative". It is about liberation of the soul from projections of a alienator , and abuser ..
