The Troubled Teen Industry / Straight
« on: August 24, 2003, 12:24:00 PM »
There is a very simple reason why Straight, WWASP, and other such entities can get away with their abuses.  Nobody really cares about what happens to somebody else's kids.  We have a thousands-of-years old tradition that children are their parents' property and their parent's responsibility and their parent's problem.  The idea that children are people whose rights should and must be protected gets lip service, but it has not seeped down into our collective psyche as of yet.  

You know what's ironic?  If WWASP and Straight were in the business of mistreating dogs, cats or horses, thousands of animal lovers would storm their gates.  But human children?  Not their problem.  A blob of fetal tissue an inch long will goad people to murder, but after it's born they don't care any more.

The Troubled Teen Industry / Shutting Down Tranquility Bay - URGENT!
« on: August 12, 2003, 07:51:00 PM »
Well, this thread certainly has taken on a life of its own.  Too bad there's so much heat and so little light.  FYI people, WWASP did not add me to their complaint until some time AFTER they sued Sue Scheff.  Previously they claimed that Sue posted under my name, which is laughable considering that I was active in this cause before Sue ever heard of WWASP.  I'm fairly certain that I first posted this thread BEFORE I was served process, so I was not doing it to obtain witnesses for my own use.  My purpose was to obtain witness to help persuade government officials to do something about WWASP.    

I was going to respond to some of the anonymous postings I saw here, and then decided not to dignify them with an answer.  

One thing I will say:  I do not work for Sue Scheff, or anyone else in this movement.  The only compensation I have ever received was a magazine subscription in payment for an article I wrote for a trade publication.  Aside from that I have never received one copper penny of payment or compensation from anyone, not in cash, nor in kind, nor in favors returned, nor any good or valuable consideration of any kind, ever.  I am prepared to repeat this statement under the penalties of perjury in any court in the land.  Certainly, WWASP has yet to prove to the contrary.  I don't think they have a case, and I think the Judge is going to agree before much more time passes.

I don't believe it's happening.  Prymakov is still part of the Russian government.

In 1985 Putin and Petrushev were two young agents way down on the totem pole, exactly the kind of guys who would be detailed to seach hotel rooms and keep an eye on American student seminar groups.  That's how our association began, but while I was there some very wierd stuff happened, which is how I came to be interrogated under truth serum and have long phone conversations with Yevgeny Prymakov.

This article is an absurd crock.  Prymakov is still part of the Russian government.  Just last week or so he shuttled to Iraq to try to talk some sense into Sadaam.  (He's a middle east specialist.)  The idea that he's working for the US government is ridiculous.

By a weird coincidence I happen to know quite a bit about Prymakov.  I travelled extensively in the former USSR and interacted extensively with the KGB.  (One morning I woke up with a needle puncture in my arm and no memory of the events of the night before.  I think I was interrogated under truth serum.)  The whole story on that is too long and bizarre to go into, but in 1985 I caught Vladimir Putin and his current security chief Nikolai Petrushev searching my hotel room in Leningrad.  Another time I walked around the entire city of Leningrad twice in two days and they almost died trying to keep up.  I also talked on the phone with Prymakov several times.  He was a surprisingly thoughtful and idealistic man who believed in what he was doing.  The fact that intelligent, talented people CAN be made to believe in something like communism or naziism is a sad statement on the nature of the human psyche.  

Whatever his past crimes may have been, Prymakov was one of the people who saw that the Soviet system was breaking down.  The KGB as a whole intended to stick with the existing system until it collapsed around them, but Prymakov looked back on the millions who died in the 1917 revolution and civil war and said THE RUSSIAN PEOPLE HAVE SUFFERED ENOUGH.  He was a key player in foiling the coup of 1991 and stage-managing the transition of power from Gorbachev and the Soviet Union to Yeltsen and the Russian Republic.  In so doing he saved millions of lives at the very least.  The last Russian civil war cost millions of lives, and the next one could very well have been fought with nuclear weapons.  That could have drawn the whole world into global nuclear holocost.  The world owes Prymakov, Yeltsen and a handful of other key players a great deal.

How are you coming on this?  My group is actively seeking lawyers and we are in communication with several.  Do you have any lined up yet?  Whoever gets to that point first, either we should bring our witnesses to your lawyers, or you should bring yours to ours, as the case may be.
