"What's done to children, they will do to society."   Karl Menninger


"Their consciousness,
however, has not registered
the realities of their situation.
By repressing not only the pain but also their anger
and desire for revenge,
they have managed
to banish consciousness,
even idealizing the custom.

as a result of their repression,
they can justify the procedure
as harmless and necessary.
They cannot recall
their repressed anger
and have never grieved about
what happened to them.

they inflict  the same ordeal
on their children
without wishing to acknowledge
what they're doing to them."

"As a rule, children who were once injured
will later injure their own children,
