Anti-pedophile hysteria has always been rooted primarily in the underlying, unspoken, desire to keep young people in a controlled, confined atmosphere. A greenhouse environment. Only in such surroundings can they be suitably conditioned and indoctrinated into becoming the obedient, placid drones that the social order needs them to be.
Fortunately, this control becomes self-propelling and can […]
A UK think-tank today issued a report (’Licensed to Hug’) which states that “the dramatic escalation of child protection measures has succeeded in poisoning the relationship between the generations and creating an atmosphere of suspicion that actually increases the risks to children”.

Yesterday, the UK’s ‘Ministry of Justice’ (do they also have Ministries of Truth, Peace, Love and Plenty?) announced plans to implement new legislation, criminalizing possession of cartoons, drawings and sketches of child erotica.
This announcement follows a ‘public consultation’ last June. The full Report, published yesterday, is available in .pdf format from: http://www.justice.gov.uk/publications/non-photographic-depictions.htm).

Our ‘culture’ consists of the knowledge and values transmitted by our language. In the process of learning language, we learn the meanings that other people have ascribed to particular words and phrases.
“When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in a rather scornful tone, “it means just what I choose it to mean – neither […]
Anyone familiar with Jodorowsky’s ‘El Topo‘, will vividly recall the opening scene, in which El Topo leads his son, naked on horseback, into the desert. There, he instructs him to bury his first toy and a photo of his mother. “You are seven years old”, he tells him, “You are a man”.
This is inconceivable […]
The infamous slogan of the title is said to be the motto of the René Guyon Society. Here, I outline an argument (independent of Guyon’s doctrines) that demonstrates its – naturally theoretical – appropriateness in modern society.
The argument needs a background context. It is essentially this: the existing social order is based upon exploitation in […]
Stood in a store checkout queue yesterday, my attention was naturally caught by a cute boy – luxurious brown hair; soft, creamy skin; enormous blue eyes; maybe 5 or recently-turned 6. His mother, stood in front of me in the queue, was piling groceries (high-fat / high-salt ready meals, but that’s another comment) on the […]
A research project is being conducted at the University of Winchester, UK, on an ‘internet-based sample of individuals who are sexually attracted to children or adolescents’, and seeks to ‘gather reliable data from this population, and to publish the results and conclusions drawn from the data ethically and impartially’.
The lead researcher is Dr. Sarah Goode, […]
One of the great problems of modern society is that people lack the ability for independent thought. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the post-War generations. Raised on a diet of materialism, television advertising and the spoon-fed government-enforced propaganda of compulsory education, they grow into adults who have no thoughts that have not been […]
In our period of history, when work is considered a virtue, and earning money is the aim of life, the non-working, expense-incurring child can only be considered an inferior being. Edward Brongersma asserts that this ‘unhealthy situation is not a natural condition, but is peculiar only to the last two centuries’. It was only after […]
