Susan Maneck's "Get over it" > I.e., the injustice of the fundamentalist administration
Reflect, Gentle Reader, what is "it" that the many victims of the
fundamentalist uhj are supposed to get over? I submit "it" is defined by Professor Juan Cole
in "The Baha'i Technique":
purpose of having this system where it is so easy to turn insiders into
outsiders is to maintain very strict control over the community by its leaders.
The idea is that everyone still on the inside will fear being made a non-person
or being ostracized or being shunned, and so will keep quiet and let the
leadership do as it pleases with them. Silent suffering of tyranny and injustice
from one's leaders is the actual definition of a Baha'i in good standing. Of
course, this requirement is cult-like...."

Anger runs out eventually among the who
psychologically healthy. I think
that's one of the reasons the House never takes immediate action against people
who lash out against them. They usually wait until it is very clear they
aren't going to 'get over it.'

Shhh, Infinity. Let sleeping dogs lie. We just got rid of Freddie,
don't do anything to bring him back.
[ I invite the reader to reflect on the tactics and
technique of the above message. From another viewpoint, it is precisely the
intention of bahai apologists to provoke and draw its victims back into the
fray. My leaving talk.religion.bahai had nothing to do with the typical onslaught
of slander, insult, and derision meted out by Maneck and other apparatchiks of
the bahai administration, but was entirely due to personal reasons, partly
discussed in Farewell. ]
