RESPONSE TO RICH'S 50'S BLOG

This was my response to Rich's 59s blog.....In particular his comments about pregnancy and shame.......Apparently he found it too threatening, so he deleted it......

In those days, all the responsibility for pregnancy was put on the girl.......the men got off scott free and were even admired for getting her pregnant.....You can see that attitude in Rich's comments.....He doesn't mention that the men should be ashamed.......

There were lots of abortions in the 50's too, difference is that they were performed in very sketchy circumstances and many women died in agony from abortions and many more were scarred for life.....many became sterile or had pregnancy complications in subsequent pregnancies or became very ill from infections that they were afraid to get medical help for. Sexual abuse of children was also rampant in those days....there was a silent acquiescence that ran deep in society in those days. Date-r*pe was not even a thing, nor was spousal r*pe......the Catholic Church, the JWs and many other institutions protected child abuse within the organization........Those "Happy Families" of the 50's were often a front for the world, behind which many horrors were perpetrated.

THE MYSTERIOUS SOUND...........

A man is driving down the road and his car breaks down near a monastery. He goes to the monastery, knocks on the door, and says, "My car broke down. Do you think I could stay the night?" The monks graciously accept him, feed him dinner, even fix his car. As the man tries to fall asleep, he hears a strange sound. A sound unlike anything he's ever heard before. The Sirens that nearly seduced Odysseus into crashing his ship comes to his mind. He doesn't sleep that night. He tosses and turns trying to figure out what could possibly be making such a seductive sound. The next morning, he asks the monks what the sound was, but they say, "We can't tell you. You're not a monk."

Distraught, the man is forced to leave. Years later, after never being able to forget that sound, the man goes back to the monastery and pleads for the answer again. The monks reply, "We can't tell you. You're not a monk." The man says, "If the only way I can find out what is making that beautiful sound is to become a monk, then please, make me a monk." The monks reply, "You must travel the earth and tell us how many blades of grass there are and the exact number of grains of sand. When you find these answers, you will have become a monk."

The man sets about his task. After years of searching he returns as a gray- haired old man and knocks on the door of the monastery. A monk answers. He is taken before a gathering of all the monks. "In my quest to find what makes that beautiful sound, I traveled the earth and have found what you asked for: By design, the world is in a state of perpetual change. Only God knows what you ask. All a man can know is himself, and only then if he is honest and reflective and willing to strip away self deception." The monks reply, "Congratulations. You have become a monk. We shall now show you the way to the mystery of the sacred sound." The monks lead the man to a wooden door, where the head monk says, "The sound is beyond that door."

The monks give him the key, and he opens the door. Behind the wooden door is another door made of stone. The man is given the key to the stone door and he opens it, only to find a door made of ruby. And so it went that he needed keys to doors of emerald, pearl and diamond. Finally, they come to a door made of solid gold. The sound has become very clear and definite. The monks say, "This is the last key to the last door." The man is apprehensive to no end. His life's wish is behind that door! With trembling hands, he unlocks the door, turns the knob, and slowly pushes the door open. Falling to his knees, he is utterly amazed to discover the source of that haunting and seductive sound...... ... ... ... ... ... ... ... But, of course, I can't tell you what it is because you're not a monk.

BELIEF.....

I was at a party last weekend ..So this woman comes up to me.....a mother in her late 30s.....I know her, but not well.....we have connections.....I was making small-talk about the kids going back to school...her youngest, a daughter, is starting grade 2. Somehow she turned it into a story about her birth and the Astrology of the birth and then went to the Astrology of her other children's births and then, of course, the astrology of her own birth and that of her husband, who was born the same day as my daughter and then she turned to me and asked an Astrology question, to compare their characters Astrologically.........Whew!......I told her that I don't actually believe in Astrology. She said...Oh, you don't have to believe in it to see how it affects us. I said, well, yes I do....I don't think there is any truth to the concept of Astrology...I don't any attention to it......

Then she says "Oh, I don't really believe in it either, I just think it's fun, you know, like a game."

So I need a little help here.......This woman obviously knows a lot about Astrology......she just talked about it for 20 minutes straight and made many references to how it affected herself and family members........How is it a "game"? What could possibly be interesting or entertaining in paying this much attention to something that you think is nonsense?

Maybe she was embarrassed that she had gone on and on assuming I was a fellow traveller. and then pretended she doesn't believe, but that's pretty fickle......no, I think there is something else going on. Anyone got any ideas?
