Hence the plan of the State to get a hold of the children while they are still little. If they force both parents to work and then operant condition that young child that the state is to be the name of God... That's why so many of these tyrants absolutely want to insert themselves into the God position. It is more difficult given our current society, so they try to do it in more roundabout ways.

The best way to control the opposition is to finance it. Birds of prey have two wings; the left wing & right wing.

There is a recent saying in Afghanistan, that says, "if you educate a boy, you have an educated son, but if you educate a daughter, you have an educated Family. " Mothers play such a pivotal role in our family's development.

"You reveal your character by what you do with what you have."

Gaia was the great mother of all, the primal Greek Mother Goddess; creator and giver of birth to the Earth and all the Universe; the heavenly gods, the Titans, and the Giants were born to her

From Vanity Fair (1847-1848), Vol. II, Ch. 2. This from James Joyce seems to agree: "Whatever else is unsure in this stinking dunghill of a world, a mother's love is not."

James Joyce in A Portrait of the Artist as a Young Man (1916). http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Mothers

And it is important to remember that.

I remember, therefore I am.

This is a lovely thought but I echo JC and J-Max.

If true, then for some children God must seem like a cruel tyrant.


"Now" is the eternal present.

Before the mother was the woman, and she said:
""I think I could be a good woman if I had five thousand a year.""Shame on you
Vol. II, ch. 6. Vanity Fair

It's not about Mothers, it's about Little Children.
