My friend made a phone call
I do not know how or why, but my friend Alex made a phone call and left a message on my friends cell phone tonight.


The message did not say much, just that he is in West Virginia in the woods, and seemed to say halfheartedly that he was having a good time in the woods, but that does not sit well with me, because according to the program he should not really be in the woods after this long, he is supposed to be in one of these outdoor village setups. I think he was just blabbing cause he thinks that he is still out of town. My friend had just returned from Israel so his phone message still said he was out of town. Maybe he will try to call someone else later tonight. I hope he was not caught trying to call someone or escaping. I think I might call the sheriff where the school is again and ask if the school reported an escape last night.

Slavish discipline makes a slavish temper... If severity carry'd to the
highest pitch does prevail, and works a cure upon the present unruly
distemper, it often brings in the room of it a worse and more dangerous
disease, by breaking the mind; and then, in the place of a disorderly young
fellow, you have a low spirited moap'd creature, who, however with his
unnatural sobriety he may please silly people, who commend tame unactive
children, because they make no noise, nor give them any trouble; yet at
last, will probably prove as uncomfortable a thing to his friends, as he
will be all his life an useless thing to himself and others... Beating them,
and all other sorts of slavish and corporal punishments, are not the
discipline fit to be used in the education of those we would have wise,
good, and ingenuous men...

False Alarm
Well as it turns out, he was at a hotel with his parents, part of the 'transition' between the "village" and the "school" portion of the program. He called Aaron and left a message but, he spoke to his ex-girlfriend for a few hours last night.


Apparently he is ok and he has about a month left. It is good to know that he is ok, and making the best of a bad situation, I don't think he is in danger. My main thought now, is that while this program may not be practicing "BM" and not outright abusive, it is still a scam since without actual therapists or licensed staff, it is little more than an unsafe summer camp, that charges 20,000 dollars for a little less than 3 months.
