An Ode to the British Establishment

A Personal Crisis

The blog came into being  because a of a personal crisis –  brought on by news coverage about child sexual abuse in the UK.  I had to respond in some way. So I started blogging and tweeting about so-called false memory.

I am very thankful to everyone who has supported me – I am now feling a lot better.

The false memory movement in the UK

I found quite a bit on the net that is critical of the false memory people in the US. But I wanted to understand how they worked in the UK. It seems that the movement in the UK has put more emphasis on trying to influence public policy. They’ve made at least two submissions regarding historical child sexual abuse in the past – and will doubtless be making a submision to the present UK inquiry.

The so-called grassroots charity

I used to think that the false memory movement was who they said they were – groups of´parents´ who were suffering  from the misfortune of  ´brainwashed´ adult daughters. Now I don’t think the group was ´grassrooted´at all. I think parents’ agony was just exploted to provide fuel to make good stories to the press. And I think this is still the case today

Feeling alone

When I started this blog I felt very alone. I wanted to find someone with the same experience  –   of being hounded by the false people –  to share with. I haven’t found that. But I have found stop-stalking-6people who do want to listen – and people who have been hurt in other ways that make them feel very alone. Because feeling alone – and not being able to share one’s experience – is one of the hallmarks of child sexual abuse
