Dr. Jim Burns, doctorate in education. Interesting interview. See if you can still find his number. He changed it at least twice after getting a few calls.

Springfield '82-'84 was Mel Riddle and Mrs. Byrd.

I heard later that Leslie Murden went from 1st phase up to Exec.

She's out spending all that money she made off of your parents.

Sorry, I meant Hugh Burns, not Jim. Dunno why I always make that mistake.

1978-1981

I also recall a Jim.....Memory says yeah Jim Burns....He would ocasionally during the open meeting do a dog & pony show for the adults with Hellen Peterman playing "20 Questions". "Jim would of course excuse himself shortly after and the show began.

George Ross...alleged Doctor......Pft.... His claim to fame was "Rational" something. I also recall some cartoons including "Rational Ralph".... I will never forget him atop of a girl, dry humping her...explaining that she had been raped....he was way way out of bounds...fucking sick...wether the rape happened or it was some sick fantasy (of his). In the old green room of the Morgan Yacht Building. George Ross, 14-15 year old female and 8-10, eleven-seventeen year old males. It's one of those images seered into my conciousness.

There were lots of people behind the scene. There was a guy named Bi*ll G*ates whose son and daughter either went thru Straight or the Seed...that was never clear. Laura Morgan. Yeah, quiet, poised and gracious. Her ex was Charlie Morgan. The founder/owner and CEO of Morgan Yacht. Hence....the Morgan Yacht Building. If you ever have seen the movie Coccoon...it's odd to note it was filmed in the Morgan home on Park Street....just.....errie.

There is one notable person, he certainly wasnt executive material ( a volunteer) ...Mr Ed., the old old old guy who answered the phones in the Morgan Yacht Building....Every one who ever had "responsibilities" and was a "runner" knows damn well who Mr. Ed was...And if he wasnt uncle pervy...I would truly be amazed...even if I ever believed he wasn't.

The following is a link to an image...an abstract image, from my site. Been a member for a long time and just noticed that was an option. Seems better than clogging band width and forcing an image...

http://www.woof-a-doof.com/images/abstracts/handz.jpg

I digress....

In previous posts I have said that Miller Newton found himself being presented with a completely out of control situation. Hate, distrust, fear, physical abuse, verbal abuse, and of course psychological abuse brought us as a whole into a seething entity. Miller Newton made no effort to reduce the tensions. Miller Newton ratched up the abuse daily. I have three other cousins that followed after me

Miller Newton had assumed control for the last few months it seems of my time incarcerated in Straight Inc. It was a whole new era for us. He brought about an insainity that makes coffee nervious.

With Miller Newton began the 5th phase start over....(just typing the words has me feeling befuddel'd) one could really sense that he was stretchng his wings...looking for the boundaries....finding none. He was an evil bastard with the talent of a two night evangelist at a southern baptist revival. Yet for us, especially myself, graduation (and also with Miller Newton came the prase "7 stepper"...gawd) couldn't come soon enough. I had three cousins go thru Straight Inc following me...one refuses to discuss it...one is all fucked up with jesus and one fortunately that is as close to the heart.

Apologies for the after work babbling....

Namaste

please excuse the off topicness, but, does anyone reading this consider the MI's as abusive? The remark about Ross rang a bell, sorry... In the trenches of front-line activism activities, I have maintained that MI's are a form of psychological abuse that may not get the attention it deserves. It was and still is one of those pain in the ass kind of chores that is required even today by clients of spinoff programs. I've heard some folks say that they don't consider it abuse, it's just a PIA chore based on AA philosophies, and others who agree with me about it being a brainwashing tool. Thank you for an opinion.

Yes, I view the Moral inventory as abusive, b/c for one, "the program" took basica AA principals and twisted them into some kind of entangled neuroses crisis on a daily basis. So therefore, having to then write out " private confessions" over and over again against ones will is inherintly abusive. It wasn't so much the above that made me feel it was completely abusive. It was more that the above combined with having to "go over" those M.I.'s with complete strangers, who then were free to criticize them and basically hold a "mini rap" at the foster home, like they were a staff member. Then if the oldcomer didnt act that way towards you, they then ran the risk of being stood up in group and being "confronted" with being "soft" with newcomers....funny how we never saw anyone get stood up for being "hard" with newcomers isn't now?
That says a great deal right there.
anyway, it is all relative, the whole place, idealogy, the rules, the dogma, the M.I.'s the rational therapy shit, the raps, no privacy, ....etc.... it is and was all a part of "the game".

-warm regards,

"MORAL INVENTORIES" ARE MIND RAPE
« Reply #14 on: April 07, 2007, 06:06:16 PM »
Yes the M.I.s were abusive. I don't think it's "all relative" at all. Straight had an agenda to brainwash us. Forced confessions of moral failings are definitely a tactic of brainwashing. Brainwashing is torture. It's all part of the basket of pain Straight gave us. It all works together.

It wasn't exactly "moral failings" like stealing something, it was about continually examining our inner state to make sure we had the proper cult attitude, thoughts, and feelings. M.I.s were a training ground for oldcomers to examine and work on correcting newcomers with respect to these things and to teach them cultspeak and cultthink.

We could not write anything that we could keep private, at all. This has a huge impact on the psyche. In addition, we were led to believe that if we even allowed our thoughts to be private and unexamined, we were in danger. The real danger was the emotional abuse of possible confrontation we might face to make us "get honest" and the certain loss of freedom if we were found to be "f.o.s." But of course we were trained to think that the danger was ourselves, we wanted to be fully honest and share all our thoughts, especially "bad thoughts", because we wanted to be "closer to the Group" and we didn't trust our own minds and thought that our thoughts would make us do something bad like cop out and do drugs. Violation of the right to privacy of the mind might seem like a hidden or lesser abuse to some. It doesn't seem "violent", but it is. It's a rape of privacy, a rape of self-conception, and a rape of self-expression. It is MIND RAPE.

The ritual practice of writing M.I.s also serves to train the mind to focus on "shortcomings", "things to fix", and so on as part of the cult tactic of domination of the mind and thinking time. If we are busy worried about these things that are totally inappropriate for teenagers to be worried about -- like whether we were "really open and honest with the group," or whether we were "sitting in our shit" --we stop thinking, literally, our minds are focused on a ritual practice of self-denigration and self-disrespect.

Over the years I have certainly heard from more than one person how much the forced writing and reading of M.I.s damaged their mental and artistic abilities. It abused yet another aspect of self-expression. Staff would get people's diaries from before Straight and read them out loud in Group. How dare they.

It all sucked, and there's a reason it sucked. Straight was an institution dedicated to DOMINATING every aspect of our days, thoughts, body, self-concepts: every aspect of our existence.

There's actually a lot of information on the web if you do some internet searching on "confession", "brainwashing", and "cult".
