The exposures continue

It appears the British Parliament may contain almost as many pedophiles and pedophile defenders as SFWA:
More than 10 current and former politicians are on a list of alleged child abusers held by police investigating claims of a Westminster paedophile ring. MPs or peers from all three main political parties are on the list, which includes former ministers and household names. Several, including Cyril Smith and Sir Peter Morrison, are no longer alive, but others are still active in Parliament.

The existence of the list was disclosed by Peter McKelvie, the whistleblower whose claims prompted Operation Fernbridge, the Scotland Yard investigation into allegations of a paedophile network with links to Downing Street. Mr McKelvie, a retired child protection team manager who has spent more than 20 years compiling evidence of alleged abuse by authority figures, said he believed there was enough evidence to arrest at least one senior politician....

Mr McKelvie, who helped bring the notorious paedophile Peter Righton to justice in 1992 when he worked in Hereford and Worcester child protection team, said: “I believe there are sufficient grounds to carry out a formal investigation into allegations of up to 20 MPs and Lords over the last three to four decades, some still alive and some dead. The list is there.”

In a letter to his local MP Sir Tony Baldry last month, Mr McKelvie suggested that a further 20 MPs and Lords were implicated in the “cover-up” of abuse of children.
The Guardian has already done one story on Marion Zimmer Bradley. One hopes the newspaper will continue investigating her defenders and enablers, and then look into Ed Kramer, Samuel Delany, and the connections between Walter Breen, L. Ron Hubbard and a science-related gifted kids program.
The strange link between physics and ESP came to the forefront in the character of Jack Sarfatti, whom we already introduced. Sarfatti was, in 1952, part of an after-school group of gifted children, being tutored by Walter Breen of the Sandia Corporation, an organisation famous for atomic weapons research and development. Breen was helped by others from Sandia to lecture to these children. In 1952, Sarfatti received a phone-call from outer space – quite literally, he felt. It seemed to predestine him to become a leading physicist, interested in time and space, other dimensions, etc.

Sarfatti reiterated that the enigmatic phone calls he received occurred in the summer of 1953. “I met Walter Breen soon after that via Robert Bashlow who recruited me and Johnny Glogower. Also Robert Solovay (briefly). Breen was working for Professor William Sheldon at Columbia Psychiatry Department funded by Eugene McDermott, a World War II Intelligence leader, co-founder of Texas Instruments and University of Texas at Dallas – and part of the Charles Lindburgh, Arthur Young ‘Round Table’ group. Saul-Paul Sirag says that L. Ron Hubbard was part of that scene along with Puharich. 
What this suggests is that the science fiction freakshow of sexual deviants may not necessarily be just three or four bad actors, each operating more or less on their own. It is well known that pedophiles tend to run in loosely affiliated packs, and the fact that there have been at least three confirmed pedophiles, Breen, Bradley, and Kramer, and one serious red flag, Delany, active in the relatively small science fiction community, indicates that there could be as many as ten times that number involved, as is apparently the case in Westminster.

And keep this description in mind when you read plaudits about the wonderfully warm "Chip" Delany, who has provided considerably more cause for suspicion than the recently convicted Rolf Harris ever did.
To people throughout the world, myself included, he was the beloved uncle: warm, colourful, comforting. Lovely touchy-feely Rolf had this ability to make you feel as though you were the most important person in the world.... Experts in pathological sex offenders say the really clever ones spend only one per cent of their time grooming their actual victims — but 99 per cent of their time grooming the people around them. Often working as teachers or priests or entertainers, they are expert at persuading people they are trustworthy — tirelessly giving to charities, visiting the sick, cheering up the masses — to the extent that no one would believe a bad word against them.
Everyone knows that I am not a fan of SFWA. I think it is an outdated organization that has outlived its purpose and thereby enmeshed itself in left-wing ideology in a misguided attempt to remain relevant to writers. But my feelings and motivations have absolutely nothing to do with what other people have done over the last 50 years. Pattern recognition has always been a strength of mine (see: Financial crisis of 2008), and SFWA's increasingly bizarre non-reaction to revelations of FIVE DECADES of child abuse and the public defense of child abusers by its members is tripping my radar. It may be simple incompetence, or it may suggests that there is more to the situation than the isolated acts of a few bad apples.

This is what Scientologists actually believe

"You see, Stan, there is a reason for people feeling sad and depressed. An alien reason. It all began 75 million years ago. Back then there was a Galactic Federation of planets which was ruled over by the evil Lord Xenu."

"The frozen alien bodies were loaded onto Xenu's galactic cruisers, which looked like DC-8s, except with rocket engines."

"Xenu didn't want their souls to return! And so he built giant soul-catchers in the sky!"

"Xenu then released the alien souls, which roamed the earth aimlessly in a fog of confusion. At the dawn of man, the souls finally found bodies which they can grab onto. They attached themselves to all mankind, which still to this day causes all our fears, our confusions, and our problems."

It's fascinating to see groups of people being groomed. I've not knowingly seen it done by a pedophile but have seen numerous prissy church girls fool entire congregations into believing they are haloed, virtuous angels. Well, entire congregations except for those few of us guys that knew better. No one would have ever believed us.

Because of that experience I'm always willing to consider accusations against even the most respected individual.

Which ties into Satanism via L. Ron Hubbard's association with Aleister Crowley and Jack Parsons of NASA's JPL.

From Wikipedia...Parsons and Hubbard collaborated on the "Babalon Working", a sex magic ritual intended to summon an incarnation of Babalon, the supreme Thelemite Goddess. It was undertaken over several nights in February and March 1946 in order to summon an "elemental" who would participate in further sex magic.[118] As Richard Metzger describes it,

Parsons used his "magical wand" to whip up a vortex of energy so the elemental would be summoned. Translated into plain English, Parsons jerked off in the name of spiritual advancement whilst Hubbard (referred to as "The Scribe" in the diary of the event) scanned the astral plane for signs and visions.[119]

Re: Parliament; there is a reason foreign intelligence agencies focused much attention on (then) closeted homosexuals in government service; the predisposition of the queeners for little boys made (makes) setting them up for blackmail a trivial exercise.

The gay community has consistently pushed to lower the age of consent, which is 16 in over half the US, 17 or 18 in the remaining states. Part of their effort to have perverse behavior not only accepted, but embraced by society.

Aphelion, I happen to think the modern western model is wrong. > 13 y.o, are young adults.
Mary, was arguably about 15 y.o. when Jesus was born to her.

The word teenager is a recent invention, pulled from rarefied air; there isn't a single tribal group, ancient people anywhere, to my humble knowledge, who would concur with it.

An attack on humanity has included keeping people in perpetual childhood - a state or permanently arrested emotional development.

I've sat and rapped with a psychologist who does recovery from serious satanic ritual abuse. Rolf Harris by comparison would seem to be a fall guy if anything. Things done elsewhere are orders of magnitude worse. Not to be repeated in open forums.

ps. the very best of snipers/ the highest order predators hide in plain site. Camouflage is everything.

And the greatest betrayal of mankind, wasn't betrayal in any normal sense, but people working for fallen angels. Humanity has no lower estate.

Worth reading:
How The Youth Minister Became A Sexual Predator.
The overwhelming majority of child sex abusers are either family members or friends of the family. No doubt the girl’s family’s trust of their daughter’s youth minister helped him get away with rape. This is not to blame the family, but it is important for families to be vigilant. In the Catholic cases, many times the clerical sex predators sought out victims from families that were happy to see the special interest a man of God took in their child.
This is the article that was taken down from Christianity Today.

England expects every man willl do his duty are unutterably sublime words in relief against this back ground of thoroughly modern lasciviousness.

I was intrigued (pun fully intended) by the link between the founding of Texas Instruments and the early post-war intelligence community. Oracle / Larry Ellison got their start building intelligence analysis tools for the CIA.

More recently, all the major US technology houses have been publicly compromised by the monstrous over-reach of the NSA.

What does this have to do with the topic?

Perhaps nothing at all. But, otoh, there have long been rumours of connections between the 'security / intelligence' services and politically connected (motivated?) pedo rings. Whether as trusted procurers, as deliberate honey-trapping for later corralling or blackmail to keep politicians in line once they achieve office, or maybe all of that and more, the rumours have been persistent and some of them persuasive.

In particular, regular stories of such groups, and then successful cover-ups which include obvious lies which could easily be exposed by the mainstream media merely by asking a few simple questions, but somehow never are, strongly suggest very powerful connections.

My own point is not to make a case one way or the other for any particular story on this growing list, but to make another point entirely; there's a common superstition abroad today, that we are somehow different from those who went before us. That we are better, smarter, more moral, upright creatures. This is a natural conclusion if one is an atheist convinced by the upward progress narrative of the evolutionary camp.

But if they are wrong, and we're actually devolving, then ... well, then the sort of people who organised such things may have been driven underground during the recent peak of our civilisation, but (1) they never went away, and (2) they're likely to be coming back out in the open as our civilisation further declines.

Blogger LP 999/Eliza July 05, 2014 12:25 PM  

Sure, as the society declines the more perversity. I also question the satanic nature of the atheism or God believing deviants.

Expose them all, the guardian piece was utterly damning as was the internet time spent on the sfwa. I wonder who will step down from their respective offices soon.

L. Ron Hubbard reminds me of the catcher in the rye, totally unimpressive and worthless - I rejected its popularity along with the obsession for reminiscing about writers/books like that. I think I was in my teens or around there, I decided the L. Ron Hubbard worship had to be a baby boomer thing. And I could be wrong today but the creepy factor arose, like gay, pedo, has a couple bodies underneath the patio or something chained up in the basement.

Speaking of Southpark, I will never know why or how I found comedy central as funny...Over the years I used to question the fanatics about who wasn't normal or didn't appear normal in their celebrity or eccentric styles. Which flavor of the month on the best sellers list or most important star getting all the movies a total freak; see...shorty unattractive (seemingly) nutcase exhusband of katy holmes.

It may be simple incompetence, or it may suggests that there is more to the situation than the isolated acts of a few bad apples.

Pedos are adept at identifying kids with emotional issues. Kids who don't think anyone loves them or who don't fit into society are their favorite prey because they use the insecurity as part of their grooming. They supply the validation the kids are missing. Of course, at the same time they do that, they also try to further isolate the kid from society, or even better get the kid to isolate himself by strange behavior.

The most clever pedos only spend 1% of their time grooming their intended victims. They spend 99% of their time grooming everyone else so that they will be allowed to operate.

I suspect pedos have been "grooming" Sci-Fi fandom for 50 years, using insecurities to isolate the entire genre from the mainstream. The people who today are prominent in it certainly strike me as people who had (and still have) significant emotional problems and just never fit in very well with society. There's perhaps more than just Pournelle's Iron Law to blame for the fact the Scalzis and Toads of the world and not the Pournelles are running SFWA.

Really, it would be surprising if they had not, given that sci-fi provides escapist fantasy for many a socially-marginalized child. As Vox notes, the suspicious part about this is how loath the leaders are to do anything about it.

Note, that originally I think sci-fi provided some societal good. Smart, frustrated, daydreaming children need an intellectual outlet, and sci-fi provided that. It also provided alternate means of validation other from the conventional physical or social dominance children had to deal with in school. This was originally fairly innocent, but... it seems obvious that sci-fi went through a shift from the 50s to the 70s as some of the more depraved realized they could manipulate young minds through this.

Indeed, in hindsight I find it too obvious. I think it's part of the refutation that you get closed minded as you get older. No, as I get older, I find I am more open-minded to just how evil people can be.

I don't think Sci-Fi had to be a genre for misfits. It could have been (and occasionally still is) a genre for adventurers. I go backpacking in the wilderness not to get away from society but rather to experience the grandeur of nature. I'm not escaping anything, I'm going to something. For a time, Sci-Fi was that too, an exploration of the future, not an escape from the present.

That's why I contrasted Scalzi with Pournelle. One is a social misfit who's contribution to society beyond writing was as an "AOL Relationship Consultant" and the other is a well within the social mainstream and contributed to actual engineering accomplishments.

Even if it is 50 years of a few bad apples, because the SFWA has-at the minimum-not discarded them, the rot spreads. There is no doubt that the apples are there, that the SFWA has establish a mechanism by which to dispense with them...and choose not to employ it.

They are in league with convicted child molesters, now the only question is how much compromise will they be able to hide before collapse? It would be better to drain the swamp at this late hour and get going on clean-up. But since the Puppeteer, McRapey, McCreepy, McCaffrey, Shetterly, Delany, Gould and other powerful leader/members are already damned, they probably see no sense whatsover in coming clean now as long as they think they'll somehow evade full exposure.

As far as Jemisin goes - she's probably pissed the SFWA isn't celebrating their legacy of child rape. She's madder at the closet than what's hidden in it.

just a footnote on 'relativity'.
there are purportedly 170,000 women/ girls in Great Britain with clitorectomies; many of which will be culturally abused all of their lives/ denied a standard education/ beaten/ forced marriage/ and or honour killed if they try to get out
A rich dirty old man is paraded through the justice system at the behest of women who stand to make substantial gains now through a retributive justice compensation schedule. Yes, it's "justice" but are we seeing something entirely balanced in the equation.

Another thing that people just don't get. Many victims of sexual abuse only become 'victims' when they are 'spat out'/ abandoned. Think seriously about this. In other times and places a victim might have been a relatively content life long mistress/ concubine/ generously provided for 'other woman' or 'other women'.

Few people will 'get this' but for many victims the crime actually began at the abandonment. The abandonment was the betrayal - the place where the wound wouldn't heal.

It explains much; but just doesn't get discussed when a lynch mob has already formed.

As a kid I never thought of sci-fi as something for misfits or the physically timid. I was raised to get out there and do things. I climbed mountains, rode motorcycles, waterskiied in the summers, ran on the track team, played guitar in a couple bands...

But I was still an introvert and a thinker, and a voracious reader. Sci-fi, westerns, spy thrillers, historical tales, books about science, you name it, I loved it. It wasn't until High school in the 80s that I had any inkling that being a reader and a thinker meant you were supposed to be a nerd. It's unfortunate that Hollywood and TV chose to reinforce that stereotype. I see that as the beginning of America's intellectual decline.
