It’s profoundly dangerous to teach people things they’re not ready to learn. That’s why people who see pedophilia in high places keep their mouths shut. If they speak up, they’re likely to be chopped up by the friends of the pedophiles, and to the approval of an uncomfortable public. (I presume this is also why women shut their mouths after being abused. If you tell people what they don’t want to know, they’ll be glad when you’re swept away.)
The unspoken parts of such things are the implications they cast:
If uncle Henry is a rapist, how come I love him?
If President X is a life-long abuser of women, why did I vote for him twice and defend him a hundred times?
If Prince Jimmy molests teenagers, how come I adore the royal family?
It’s the self-contradiction that people don’t want to face in all of this. Calling some math teacher a monster isn’t a problem. The issue is everything attached to it.
Americans, for example, are taught that we are the good guys, that our system is constructed with such genius that it always rights itself, and that it produces the highest grades of freedom and righteousness. But if our Presidents, Senators and important men feed on the fear and gullibility of teenage girls… if the magic system (right down to the cops) reliably protects sexual abusers… then what we believed was wrong and we are ruled by monsters in makeup and suits.
And that is simply too much to take, at least for a large number of people. And so they avoid the subject and wait for a respectable reason to wash it away with a wave of denial.
What Of L’Affair Epstein?
It’s too early to know what will come of this, of course. There will be some kind of public investigation, but most likely it will result in a few prison guards going to jail, and possibly a supervisor or two. Ho hum, the people in robes have spoken, nothing more to see, go back home to your comfortable illusions… and be sure to shout “conspiracy theory” at anyone who brings it up again.
Still, the Epstein affair may have some effect. The acts of the pedophile class were so open that some percentage of the populace won’t want to forget. Consider:
The one and only job of (arguably) the most prominent correctional facility in the United States was to keep this man alive for trial. His death, by whatever method, made it clear that the deep state can and does overpower the public state.
His list of friends makes it very clear that power and pedophilia are partners.
This pimp to the powerful and twisted was protected, openly and over a long period of time.
Will this sink in to the general public? It’s hard to say, but more or less everyone agrees that it reeks.
And consider some of the people who were happy to befriend this man. Let’s forget their names and consider their positions:
At least one US President.
A big-time royal dude.
A US Senator.
A US Governor.
A large number of super-rich people.
A super-famous entertainment guy.
Other famous entertainment guys.
A super-famous lawyer.
More than that, a lot of these people remained his friends after he was convicted and jailed. At a minimum these people had to be hopelessly stupid, and I’m not sure many of them are. And if what stands behind this wasn’t a Forest Gump level of stupidity, what was it?
What, Then, Do We Do?
First of all, don’t jump to conclusions. Stay with facts and forget about crusading for justice. Going too far is what the pedophiles need you to do… it’s what empowers denial.
When talking to someone about this, make one point, then walk away. Let people absorb the one fact, which takes time. Pushing people to accept everything at once is something we do for our own satisfaction, not for their benefit.
This is a marathon, not a sprint. If you do your job, facts will accumulate in people, one by one. And then, at some point in the future, they’ll be able to see the full picture without existential terror.
