When he talk about deFOOing, he seems to speak about it mostly from the perspective of the person that is making the decision to do the deFOOing, but rarely the deFOOie. I was the deFOOie; and while in some ways I am better off without them in my life, it was extremely traumatic to go though, and has left many long lasting scars and effects. For starters, I struggle with personal relationships with other people, such as trust issues, am now largely a loner/lone-wolf. I find it difficult to engage in society, form lasting friendships - not to mention romantic relationships, and find it all too easy to simply cut people off myself. Second, I have deep self-esteem issues. I struggle with loving myself, therefore I don&#39;t let others love me either. Third, for several years, I coped with self depreciating behavior such as drugs, alcohol, and self inflicted abuse. Does he not see how destructive deFooing can be? There are times it is appropriate to deFoo, especially sexual, physical, and extreme mental abuse; But often, isn&#39;t it better for families to to put differences aside, and agree to disagree, and rather focus on the things they do agree on and carry-on a relationship?Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7515274855900925482.post-253957312809264642014-08-02T12:16:00.703-04:002014-08-02T12:16:00.703-04:00of course you can reference the site.

I copied it but can hardly attribute its authorship to Edmund Burke so I will credit your website, is that okay?<br />Molyneux has a marvelous factoid-filing, mechanical mind quite in keeping with the authoritarian Prussian Schooling system that he went through that passes for public education in the western world. Showing off ones factoid-filing capabilities gets one &quot;A&quot;s on the report card and the admiration of authoritarian schoolers and parents everywhere. It is not wisdom or understanding. Understanding and wisdom and compassion for one&#39;s fellow man starts with humility (&quot;under&quot; &quot;standing&quot;) which is a much deeper and powerful attribute than factoid-filing. I accept his factoid expositions or expostulations but when he becomes more abstract and gets off onto what he considers psychology or religion or even philosophy, I must turn him off. He steps off the edge. I was not aware of the cult aspect. He did give a great talk on the dangers of psychiatric labeling and drugging, quite within the range of his factoid-filing strength. I recommend it. Thank you for the interesting site, but try to referee towards understanding, which precludes name-calling, labeling, pejoratives and epithets.

So, If my son is defooing from my husband and I and his whole extended family on both sides, what&#39;s the best piece of advice? I&#39;m thinking prayer is the best, and then wait on God?...We are all on the East coast and my son has moved to the west coast to make this process easier for him. I&#39;m afraid if we argue with him and try and be logical with him about all the inconsistencies and cultishness of Molyneux, he&#39;ll just decide we are even more corrupt and prove he did the right thing. Ask your son what made him realize that Molyneux is just a man with some new ideas, but he is preying on young people who are disillusioned with the government and with lack of jobs and with the meaning of life, and since he had a terrible childhood, which I&#39;m sorry for what he went through, he is pushing his bitterness and anger on all our sons and daughters!Anonymousnoreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-7515274855900925482.post-26401322157869725922013-03-23T14:19:40.583-04:002013-03-23T14:19:40.583-04:00Greetings to all. I have a success story I would ...Greetings to all. I have a success story I would like to share. <br /><br />3 1/2 years ago Stefan Molyneux and FDR broke up our family and stole our son. I don&#39;t have to tell those of you that experience the same thing how my husband and I were feeling and the thoughts we had - words can&#39;t describe it.<br /><br />About 3 weeks ago, we got an e-mail from our son, reaching out. He asked some questions and we wrote back anxiously awaiting a response back. 1 week later, he knocked at the front door!!!! Praise God - we have our son back. All our prayers and the prayers of others worked! It is sooo good to hear him say &quot;I love you&quot; again. Please, for those of you going through the same life changing experience -don&#39;t give up. We will keep praying for you too.<br /><br />Signed - Reborn and smiling again.Anonymousnoreply@blogger.com
