Anyone who doesn't think this shit happens needs to get their head out of their arse.
Agreed and and those that justify this shit need to stick there heads back up there and stay home - Warrior Culture as an excuse nonsense - it is not the way of the warrio - these pope were not warriors.
My thinking was more along the lines of the teaching of Basic Psychology including Communcaition Styles, Cognitive Behavioural Therapy and Rational Thinking adn linking this to practical aspects such goal setting, problem solving etc.
Not Philosophy as such or the Philsophy of the Mind - the mind body question.
On the "Oh Grow up" side of things - goings on in the house yesterday were telling:
Bleah - John Key - infantile - David Carter - dense.
Behavioural Therapy should be taught in high school"
I have often wondered why Communication Styles, Behavioural Therapy or Rational Thinking is not taught - that to experience any emotion starts with thought.
This learning should start with the pre teens.
I was glad that Campbell made the effort and ran the story – I want to know what the going rate or outcome was likely to be as a result of the operation of the Japanese “Criminal Justice Processes” and whether Jerry Collins has any representation.
The physical symptoms at the time of the arrest, excessive sweating etc, are reminiscent of a panic attack - or that he had actually ran away from something.
At the suggestion that the balance of his mind was disturbed he behaved pretty politely at being taken into custody and during his subsequent interment, thus far at least.
I hope for Jerry Collins he is supported and is on a plane to NZ shortly.
A wall with reproduced works say Phillip Claremont's "I Hear My Tain A Comin - Room Full of Mirrors" - would be great.

Sorry I feel it is a musical crime that is unparalleled in its mediocrity and blandness - it is up there with the Rolf Harris version of Stairway to Heaven - Just brilliant as a form of torture - I bet they use the same wiggly wobbly board thing too - I wonder if they had the wiggly wobbly board thing autogrpahed by Rolf especially for them.
and while I'm off the subject::
There is a benefit to getting the "news" from radio..
The Time cover makes me "uncomfortable" - an illustration of how tabloid and low print media has sunk.
