The violence we see all around us is a failure of development, both individually and globally. period. Planted in barren soil, deprived of water, segregated, shoved into a dark closet, yelled at, compared, humiliated, ignored, beaten, not because of seeds. It should not be blamed for being lit by a screen instead of natural sunlight. And when these stunted plants sprout sharp, entwined thorns, we blame them for moral failure, punish them, chastise them, imprison them, and smugly kill them.
Blame guns, TV, video games, twinkies, next-door bullies, bad genes, and everything else for widespread violence, self-harm, self-medication, suicide, and similar unbelievable acts towards others The defense is simply misplaced and empowers you to justify continuing to fail at your most basic challenges and responsibilities. As a whole, it models what it means to be a connected, available, awake, sensitive, empathically entwined human being. After all, that’s what every child needs and desperately screams for…
We hold ourselves accountable to a co-creating society not through guns or other tools, but through willing acceptance and participation. . . All the barbed wire around our schools, police and metal detectors doesn’t solve things. Despair and inner anger will only intensify.
In my previous post, Bonds as Transcendental Attunements, I explained its roots. How Joseph Chilton Pierce, in 1992’s Magical Child, predicted the inevitable collapse of society as a result of what he called the “nursery time bomb”.

If they hurt, they become images of pain, and pain is a violent response. evoke the But there is something else that evokes violent reactions, and that is lack of pleasure. It is quite different from the sensory experience of pain. Most people don’t understand the difference.
and actually, more damage is caused by sensory deprivation of pleasure than by actually experiencing physical painful trauma. This can be handled very well in individuals who have grown up with large amounts of physical affectionate bonds and joy accompanied by emotional trust and security.. We need to look at the trauma of sensory deprivation of bodily pleasures, which leads to the experience of separation, the infant’s isolation from the mother. [Basic trust.] That’s the beginning.
What evolved into Touch the Future started with the phone. His colleague Pat, a triathlete, was training in Los Angeles for the 1984 Olympics. Pat returns from training and goes to bed early, not realizing that a stranger has been stalking him and breaking into his apartment window. His Mission; Rape and Murder. Pat was well trained, healthy, survived unscathed, and two days later described her ordeal. “Why would a man do such a thing?” Finally, after interviewing experts in and out of California and reading five textbooks, I got the answer. Parenting failures, broken bonds, abuse, betrayal of juvenile intimacy. . . These are predator men who grow attracted to positions of power. Top corporate, financial, military, police and politicians. what goes around comes around.
