Re: Photos - lanik - ml teen terror
Hi, good to see you again. I knew your dad and mom, briefly...I think I met you when you were in Japan , were you at HCS?
I joined in LA in 1970. For sure I know Caleb and Lydia's kids and them too, pretty well. I was there the day Deborah was born in King City, if I remember correctly. Yeah, I'm old and out of TF thank God. 35 years in made me a nervous wreck, but a lot of wonderful healing has taken place in my heart and my family. The pioneering and witnessing was fun, as I am a musician and always witnessed with a guitar. Still do. I never could quite out it down to just distribute MO Letters, but I was driven to do it.
Yeah, so you were a Teen Terror?Ha! I read all about it. You weren't half the terror I was when I was a teen.But in The Family under Berg, whoever did not listen to him was a terror. He didn't like me so much, as I questioned his letters too much.
What you did when you were young was not your fault. It was the fault of Berg and Maria and the leaders who set things up and created the conditions and the situation that made it possible for you to do that stuff. The Combos were an experiment that failed miserably. That's why things always changed. They could never find anything that worked right, because they didn't really know how to do things, so everything was an experiment, then when that failed they tried something else, and claimed it was "progress".
They didn't want to admit their failure. The so called "Revolution" was just an excuse, just a cover up, to change tactics when it finally dawned on them....Duhhh, that things where not working and things were going all wrong.
The Family still works like that today. Poor kids. They are still experimenting with tactics and methods, and are forced to change them when they don't work.
And they never really work, they only say they do...so they call it a "Revolution"
Berg said that a revolution never stops changing....ha ha...what a joke! He was so stupid! But we were hippies and he appealed to the hippie mind set, so we didn't know the difference, that he wasn't really a friend of the broken hearted hippies, but an enemy who just wanted to experiment on us like a mad scientist.
The insanity goes on.....
Take care, nice family you have there.
