Do you know an honest politician, businessman or woman, clergy, medical, support, community member, legal professional, policeman or woman whom you trust and can go to for support?
It only needs to be one. Great you found one and now you learn just how safe you are together
Where do survivors who came forward so that life would be better for many, so that no other child would ever experience the type of horror that we experienced at the hands of the Catholic and other Churches and failed politics, policing and on ito greater chaos wherever survivors make contact with the system.
If you were given the job as social manager for a survivor of child sexual abuse who has an important factual message for society that touches on all manner of areas of society from childhood trauma, childhood and teenage suicide and murder and personal crimes on through domestic violence to repeats of physical; abuse towards children and the ability to turn away from the reality of the psychological and sexual assault of who classes of children by clergy in one of the longest running human entrapment enterprises humanity has ever experienced.
Just like I found that gardening can be a healthy way of unloading some of the stress understanding the psychology that keeps you trapped is of greater value to you personally until it makes you into an enemy of the Church and State.
The opportunities that our children stood to gain from Social Media and connectivity has resulted in the ability to observe the growth of rejection, isolation, segmentation and fragmentation of and by younger generations in real time.
Rejection: Ask under 25s what they know of the recent Royal Commission let alone the findings and outcomes for those caught up in the "progress of justice" and the protection of children from the forms of exploitation and abuse identifies by the Commission. Ask and they will tell you that they do not watch the news as it is so traumatic and so distant from their real needs. They say that the news is a series of sounds bites leaping from traumatic moment to the next traumatic moment while corporations exploit their want for connection to build fantastic wealth for those who managed to climb to the top of the heap in data that can be analysed so that customized advertising can be forced on to them at every opportunity. The cost of the trade does not bring or return suitable or appropriate value to the youth of today.
Today's younger generations initially appeared to have an opportunity to experience humanity moving a little beyond the grooming and manipulation that their parents experienced; however this has simply moved online where grooming can be done digitally at the speed of light.
Isolation: Isolating oneself from what is blatantly exploitative and constantly traumatic is instinctive in us. We step in directions that we feel help to insulate or isolate us from the reality of a news cycle and governments obsessed with commerce at any cost as that has become the God of the "Free enterprise" system that is said to drive us and our economies.
Ask them of their opinions of politics and they look at you with an incredulous stare as though wondering what it is that you do no not understand about their life.
John Brown was born in Yea Victoria 3717 on 27 December, 1948. John grew up in Yea, he went to the Catholic school on The Parade and then a final year at Yea High. He undertook an apprenticeship as a Hand and Machine Compositor/Linotype Mechanic at the local newspaper The Yea Chronicle who recently declined to publish anything on John's story. He left Yea after realising that the proprietor and local policeman Bill Ellisson along with other local Catholics in Yea and surrounds at that time were aware of his abuse and of the rape and abuse of other children in Yea and were aware of the many unreported issues surrounding the murder of Herbert Henry Kemp of The Parade Yea in 1962 ...... read more
Investigation of an unsolved murder in 1962 can no longer be investigated according to police taskforce SANO because a pedophile Catholic clergyman who raped a child at age 8 is now dead. As a result of the dead rapist being unconnected with the murder Victorian police remain clueless.
Later in life John married in Toowoomba only to find that he was related to the then bishop of Toowoomba Bill Morris. Morris was the head of the bishops conference and was the go to person in the country for survivors of childhood sexual abuse by Catholic clergy and yet I was never able to get a time or a conversation with the bishop. I did get conversations or connection with a number of Catholic organisations with varying degrees of weirdness.
