Internationals campaign WOMEN
campaign looks at ARMS CONTROL, in recognition of the fact that
most of those affected by gun violence are women and children.
In war, it is the women and children who are predominantly the
victims. As the Amnesty International slogan says it is "THE
HUMAN RIGHT THING TO DO". Amnesty have some fantastic promotional
material which you can access via their website. You can get
posters and other stuff to distribute at work, at school and
elsewhere. It doesn't have to be that way! Be the change. Start
Fundamentals of Our Political Culture or the Roots of
Violence as The Control Mechanism.
is a word to describe being what one is not in order to get
what doesn't exist!
love existed, the child would be what she or he is, for that
is love; letting someone be what they are.
Thus, nothing wildly traumatic need happen in order to produce
neurosis. It can stem from forcing a child to punctuate every
sentence with "please" and "thank you,"
to prove how refined the parents are. (Court protocol) It can
also come from not allowing the child to complain when he is
unhappy or to cry. (State Secrets Act) Parents may rush in to
quell sobs because of their own anxiety. They may not permit
anger "nice girls don't throw tantrums; nice boys
don't talk back" to prove how respected the parents
are; neurosis may also arise from making a child perform, such
as asking him to recite poems at a party or solve abstract problems.
Whatever form it takes, the child gets the idea of what is required
of him quite soon. Perform, or else. (Work or else.) Be what
they want, or else no love, or what passes for love:
approval, a smile, a wink (a job). Eventually the act comes
to dominate the child's life, which is passed in performing
rituals and mouthing incantations in the service of his parent/systems'
requirements. And in forgetting the experiences that create
the neurosis, we sentence ourselves to living in fear, to being
the controller and the controlled.
