The dangers of blind-belief.

Was it said the way it is said to have been said, by the person who is said to have said in the first place?


Allegations are a dangerous addition to societal patterns of language and belief systems which are often a result of years of persuasive education. If it is written, recorded and repeated, it has to be true. George Washington and the cherry tree story is just that; a story. But what needs to be ascertained, is the veracity of the story itself. Did it really happen as we have been taught to believe for so many generations? And even if it did, was it a reason for us to admire the man he (Washington) became?


Is the story of young Washington an allegation, or is it nothing more than a lie constructed to bring us into line with the more sinisterly designed educational system which is meant to produce compliant and ill-informed working classes to do the heavy lifting that makes owners rich? Mentioning this, is it true that the educational system really a sinister institution which is meant to bring a selected section of society to heel, in order to produce a re-designed need for conformist and compliant workers who do not think critically? Or, in direct opposition to this assumption, is it no more than an accusation that has become so customary to the dialectic that it has become an accepted truth?


We, who are discovering ourselves through the haze of emotional illnesses are describing a world from our points of views that have no definitive historical reference to almost anyone else on the planet, considering that we all see things in our own unique ways. Should any of us expect to be believed and not be seen as disordered and fractionalized persons, who need to be watched over just in case we happen to be crazy and dangerous?


I would assume the position that we have to be steadfast in our stances on this subject. Terrors, nightmares, distractive visions that seem so real that we break into cold sweats, and even isolate ourselves from socialization are all parts of some of our reactions to the maladies that come with our illnesses, and explanations are difficult for us to come up with to our own selves, so it makes sense that we are having difficulties with doing so to anyone else.

Do we self-allege that we are disturbed by emotional issues? Are we telling lies to ourselves? Have we lost the ability to tell the difference between a lie and the truth, because we have been conditioned not to do so? And if this is the case, can we remove ourselves from the bottom position of this way of non-critical thinking?


As a member of the military, I was told that working as a team and thinking only inside of this aspect was the only way to be successful. We learned that individual thinking would get everyone killed in combat situations, and then we had to show ourselves as being these non-critically thinking beings, who were only effective as a part of a group of uniformed thinkers. Thus, I found the necessity for learning to respect our uniforms, and not regard the person wearing it so much as the insignia identifiers distinguishing grades and ranks.

The uniforms were not just unit identifiers in case of war; they were buttons to keep us tuned in to the designed thinking patterns that had been taught to us in training. A way of reinforcing the learned ways of thinking.


Right now, today, I am a person who is dealing with emotional illness, factored in by some emotional injuries from my past that had a deleterious effect upon the solid mind identity that was in place earlier than when the issues took place. Is an effective way for me to think that I am the only person who feels this way? Should I feel free to believe that if I can feel this way, there is a chance that others may as well?


I am intentionally leaving less information in this blog than usual because I don’t want to give the impression that anyone else should accept my conclusions (if I have any!) to be truthful and worth more than ones they may have already taken as their own. I don’t know if I have any of the answers for which I have been searching because if it did, I’d be using their information to help myself, and others, already!


Disregarding holistic remedies purposely for this particular blog, I want to know if I can believe any of the information which is historically accepted as being truthful, minus any productive and reproducible evidence that they are in fact, truthful? Did the draining of blood from a person’s head, really help a person to become free of depression. Did imprisoning someone in an inescapable and most uncomfortable box, remove the demons that were causing their emotional problems? Did cold water tortures remove demonic imposters from the minds of those who were emotionally “different” by medically legal definitions?


We are all left to demonstrate the individual ability to act in a socially acceptable manner. But what is the act of socializing causes us pain and distrust of other people? Is there any possible way to prove that a victim of child abuse is less likely to suffer ill after-effects than someone who is a more recent recipient of negative events?

What kind of abusive input is more damaging than any of the others that can be added t a list? All of us are bound to a certain level of individual thinking and opinion. We have to take away the need to be led through at least THIS part of the process, or we can never be successful in our own treatments.


Now, one question, which has to lead to multiple answers: what exactly will you decide is a successful result, in relation to PTSI(D) and any other emotional illness? Take as much time as you feel is necessary to answer this because it has always been the rush to answer that has produced the ridiculous and the outlandishly contrived lies and dangerous “treatments” that have produced countless victims in the process.


Allegations, misconceptions, lies, and confusing language can disrupt any situation and make it almost impossibly confusing to question its validity. Not long ago, only the “professional” opinion was counted in the conversation. Nowadays, we can have thousands of persons who have an answer using therapies and assumptions and many of these, are under the same name, that it can be even more confusing.


This is why we search, experiment, accept, reject, change, and even come back again to positions and conclusions that we have rejected in the past because we really want to find answers and solutions.


Emotional aberrations can be frightening, and disruptive to any of us leading a normal lifestyle, so, we continue to seek solutions.
