Some Thoughts on Forgiveness

I came across this quote by Alec Nove, who I had never heard of, “To understand is not to forgive. It is simply better than the alternative, which is not to understand.”

My first reaction was, “Yeah, that’s true!” and my second was, “I don’t get it.”

I know that when I understand a situation, my feelings about it shift. For example, when I realized that my parents were treated, as children, the same way they treated me, I stopped hating and blaming them and started viewing them with compassion. Then my feelings toward myself shifted. I relaxed inside and stopped looking for danger, stopped being on high alert all the time. It was a tremendous relief!

Figuring out that they had been abused as children didn’t occur until after they both were dead and I had remembered my own abuse. I was as if I saw them in a mirror, and the mirror was me, if that makes any sense.

I often wonder how our relationship would have changed if I could have stopped walking on eggshells around them and simply watched their behavior and approached them with curiosity. I know I would have been more interested in their lives and asked more questions. It probably would have been a spiral: the more I learned, the more I would have understood, and the more I would have relaxed around them.

Of course, I might have learned something that would have sent me running out of the room screaming. I will never know!

But where does forgiveness come in? I have never quite understood the concept of forgiveness. Do other people think understanding automatically includes forgiveness? What is forgiveness, anyway?

Does it mean admitting the other person is right after all?
Does it mean forgetting what happened?
Does it mean deciding the action was okay?
Or that you love the person just as much, even though they did something that hurt you?
Or that you “get” where they are coming from?

Often, when I am confused, I look a word up in the dictionary. This definition is from The Free Dictionary at https://www.thefreedictionary.com/forgive.

“to forgive: to cease to feel resentment against (an offender): to give up resentment of or claim to requital: to grant relief from payment or forgive a debt

  1. To give up resentment against or stop wanting to punish (someone) for an offense or fault; pardon.
  2. To relent in being angry or in wishing to exact punishment for (an offense or fault).
  3. To absolve from payment of (a debt, for example).”

This dictionary goes on to define synonyms for forgive:
Synonyms: forgive, pardon, excuse, condone
These verbs mean to refrain from imposing punishment on an offender or demanding satisfaction for an offense. The first three can be used as conventional ways of offering apology. More strictly, to forgive is to grant pardon without harboring resentment: “Children begin by loving their parents; as they grow older they judge them; sometimes they forgive them” (Oscar Wilde).
Pardon more strongly implies release from the liability for or penalty entailed by an offense: After the revolution all political prisoners were pardoned.
To excuse is to pass over a mistake or fault without demanding punishment or redress: “Valencia was incredibly generous to these deadbeats. She memorized their poetry and excused their bad behavior” (David Sedaris).
To condone is to overlook an offense, usually a serious one, and often suggests tacit forgiveness: Failure to protest the policy may imply a willingness to condone it.

I’m still not satisfied.

I’m happy to give up my anger or resentment, but I want offenders to be accountable for their actions. I don’t desire punishment, or retribution, but I do desire a sincere apology and reparations, when possible, plus a change in behavior. Without seeking accountability, I would be saying, “Oh, don’t worry, that’s okay by me.” Ritual abuse, academic/government mind control experimentation, and child pornography is not okay by me, and it never will be.

“Excuse” and “condone” mean, to me at least, that I’ll go along with the behavior. Or that, under the circumstances, the behavior is reasonable or moral. I can never, under any circumstances, excuse or condone the rape or torture of any living being.

Killing – well, that’s a little different. I don’t like to kill ants, but I will do it if they enter my house. Bedbugs and cockroaches, too. Other insects I carefully scoop up and take outside. And I have no qualms taking antibiotics to kill bacteria that are making me sick.

I also eat meat, poultry, and fish, even though I feel guilty for doing so. I therefore condone the killing of these living things. I can’t say I excuse my actions, for if I did, I wouldn’t feel guilty. And I don’t pardon myself, because I didn’t break a law or do anything wrong by my society’s standards.

I’m not sure if I ever forgive myself for anything, since I’m not sure what forgiveness really means. My gut feeling is that I reserve forgiveness for things stemming from distortions caused by the abuse. I tell myself, “I forgive myself for feeling dirty, or stupid, or not human. These are lies they told me. It was not my fault I believed them, because I was only a little kid. I have always been clean, smart, and fully human.”

I guess I do understand the meaning of forgiveness after all. I see that I define it by the heart’s actions, not by the logic the mind offers. I just know, deep down, what it is.

Great Good News – Pornhub

And Some Pretty Dismal News:

On December 21, the European Union’s ePrivacy Directive will make it illegal to use technology to detect online child sexual exploitation. The EU Parliament is currently debating a provision that would make an exception in this case. The ePrivacy Directive is a temporary measure that will expire in 2015. If this exception is not passed, children will be without any protection for five years. There is a strong chance that the provisions of the ePrivacy Directive will be incorporated into the final document.

You can help protect children by learning more and signing the petition to the European Union Parliament members. 

Background from The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children: https://www.missingkids.org/childsafetyfirst 

The petition itself: https://www.change.org/p/we-are-in-danger-of-losing-the-global-battle-for-child-safety?utm_source=share_petition&utm_medium=custom_url&recruited_by_id=22e1af90-2851-11eb-a791-515174202d1b

As you know, pornography on the web is a multi-billion dollar business. Some say 97 billion dollars. That’s probably a wild exaggeration, but in any case, it’s a lot of money.

You can easily find pornography with “adult content” with a quick search. I am reluctant to look for, let alone watch, pornography, but for this article, I used duckduckgo to search for male-female pornography. The top hit was https://www.pornhub.com/video/search?search=male/female

“Male/female Porn Videos | Pornhub.com
Watch Male/female porn videos for free, here on Pornhub.com. Discover the growing collection of high quality Most Relevant XXX movies and clips. No other sex tube is more popular and features more Male/female scenes than Pornhub! Browse through our impressive selection of porn videos in HD quality on any device you own.”

According to Pornhub’s “Year in Review,” (https://www.pornhub.com/insights/2019-year-in-review#2019), there were 42 billion visits in 2019 – 115 million a day – and 39 billion searches. Of those, “teen” was the twelfth most popular. Of course, all the teens are over eighteen, right? And all the viewers are over eighteen, too.

Pornhub claims that non-consensual and child pornography is strictly prohibited on the site, but I do not believe it explains how it enforces this policy. I have trouble believing enforcement is even possible.

Home-made, as well as commercial videos, are posted on Pornhub. I imagine that it is even harder to monitor those films for the rape of adults, let alone children. (By the way, non-consensual, coerced, or forced sex is rape.)

An advocate group called Traffickinghub is working to shut down Pornhub and hold its executives accountable for aiding sexual trafficking. Petitions, media campaigns, pressure on governments, all are ways in which they seek leverage. Learn how you can support them at https://traffickinghub.com/.

Their work has just paid off!

Read this: “Thailand Shuts Down Pornhub For Violating Computer Crimes Act.” https://exoduscry.com/blog/changinglaws/breaking-thailand-shuts-down-pornhub-for-violating-computer-crimes-act/?goal=0_c15bff8d91-3933a2516a-86660702&mc_cid=3933a2516a&mc_eid=a2265e2517

Thailand joins Russia, China, Saudi Arabia, and The Philippines in banning Pornhub. It has also banned 190 other pornography sites!

Thailand has long been known as a center for child sex tourism, and teens, aa well as younger boys and girls, are freely available for sex in Bangkok and other parts of the country. Bangkok is Pornhub’s 10th largest customer base, and Thai users spend more time at the site than any other nationality in the world. This, of course, is a major income stream for the company.

Another way Pornhub might be hurt financially is if the government follows up by cracking down on the production of videos with Thai minors. If they can no longer get these popular (and free) child “actors” and “actresses,” they will lose money from all over the world.

Grassroots protest movements can be effective! That, to me, is very heartening. It shows that power generated peacefully when people come together can stand up against the power of Big Money.

One last word about the connection between sex trafficking and ritual abuse –

Many, many children who were ritually abused have been sold into child prostitution or child pornography to bring money to the cult. Some have remembered, some have not. Needless to say, it affects the victim’s life profoundly in every area.

Another link, which I am just beginning to think about, is that the techniques that pimps use to keep their victims enslaved are sometimes derived from mind control programming developed under MKULTRA and other government/military programs. I am not sure of this, as I have not read any survivor stories or studies (that I remember), but it seems likely to me. If programmed children are flowing into the pornography business, pimps would meet their handlers and ask details of how the children had been trained.

Knowledge, like water, doesn’t like to be confined.

DeprogramWiki

Halloween is finally here. It is particularly intense this year because there is a full moon. Not only that, it’s a Blue Moon! (A Blue Moon is the second full moon to occur in a month.)

Please try to take super good care of yourself. Stay as safe as you possibly can; be aware of your surroundings, shield yourself from triggers, stay in touch with safe people, and remember your terrified parts and try to soothe them.

~~~~~~~~~~

I feel I have been spending a lot of time being angry at the lasting physical harm ritual abuse causes us: it’s not over when it is over. At least I have been spending a lot of time writing about it! I have also been spending a lot of time hand-washing the delicate rayon and gauzy cotton summer clothes I love so and digging out warmer clothes from the obscure places I put them last spring. And the cat has been barfing in odd places, a little here, a little there. I am quite aware that I cannot blame everything on the cult.

Something different caught my attention, something I had never heard of. Somebody told me about “DeprogramWiki: Identifying and Deprogramming Undetectable Mind Controls.” https://deprogramwiki.com. I don’t know enough about government/military mind control because my mind control experiences were very, very different. My mind was simply used as a blackboard to sketch out programming systems and see which ones looked promising.

This site is a fountain of information (and some misinformation.) I’ve been sampling different parts of the site, reading a little here, a little there. Except for svali’s latest book, “It’s Not Impossible,” which I have been reading start to finish – well, middle to start to middle, back to reading something I had already read, to middle, and finally to finish.

About the books – I do know that svali gave permission to publish her latest book, but I don’t know if Fritz Springmeier or other authors of copyrighted material reproduced here did. This bothers me as a librarian wannabe.

All of Springmeier’s books are available for download – “The Illuminati Formula Used to Create an Undetectable Total Mind Control Slave,” “Deeper Insights into the Illuminati Formula,” and “Bloodlines of the Illuminati.” If you choose to read these books, be prepared for anti-gay and anti-Semitic material. Use your own experiences and your best judgment in deciding what to believe. Having said that, there is much of value in his work.

In addition to svali’s book, links to all of her blog posts (as far as I can tell) are on DeprogramWiki. They were taken down for several years, and there was no trace of her on the Internet. When she resurfaced, I wrote a blog post about her so others could benefit from her work. Here it is: https://ritualabuse.wordpress.com/2017/06/10/svali-speaks-again/ 

Now, this is very funny. I reread my post, and guess what! I knew about DeprogramWiki back in 2017! I was so happy to find svali that I skipped right over the rest of the material in DeprogramWiki. I’m not embarrassed about forgetting things anymore, so I am not going to rewrite anything to hide my un-remembering. 

I come by my leaky memory honorably. It is a battle scar.

Take your time exploring DeprogramWiki. Mind control programming and deprogramming are heavy-duty reading, and it’s easy to freak yourself out. Me, I am protected from freaking out when I read about mind control. 

How do I do it? It helps that I did not live through these things, for the most part. It is horrendous, but it doesn’t cause flashbacks. When something is too heavy, I simply forget what I read, sentence by sentence. It doesn’t make for productive studying, but it sure is an effective defense.
