2.1 Folk tales of South America.
We need to confront the idea that the story telling cultures were intellectually inferior to literate cultures. The is especially true in the family farm cultures where they lived longer and maintained respect for elders as their source of wisdom.
By the folk tales of South America we know that the white men sailed there.
Heyerdahl claimed that in Incan legend there was a sun-god named Con-Tici Viracocha who was the supreme head of the mythical fair-skinned people in Peru. The original name for Viracocha was Kon-Tiki or Illa-Tiki, which means Sun-Tiki or Fire-Tiki. Kon-Tiki was high priest and sun-king of these legendary "white men" who left enormous ruins on the shores of Lake Titicaca. The legend continues with the mysterious bearded white men being attacked by a chief named Cari who came from the Coquimbo Valley. They had a battle on an island in Lake Titicaca, and the fair race was massacred. However, Kon-Tiki and his closest companions managed to escape and later arrived on the Pacific coast. The legend ends with Kon-Tiki and his companions disappearing westward out to sea.
When the Spaniards came to Peru, Heyerdahl asserted, the Incas told them that the colossal monuments that stood deserted about the landscape were erected by a race of white gods who had lived there before the Incas themselves became rulers. The Incas described these "white gods" as wise, peaceful instructors who had originally come from the north in the "morning of time" and taught the Incas' primitive forefathers architecture as well as manners and customs. They were unlike other Native Americans in that they had "white skins and long beards" and were taller than the Incas. The Incas said that the "white gods" had then left as suddenly as they had come and fled westward across the Pacific. After they had left, the Incas themselves took over power in the country.
Heyerdahl said that when the Europeans first came to the Pacific islands, they were astonished that they found some of the natives to have relatively light skins and beards. There were whole families that had pale skin, hair varying in color from reddish to blonde. In contrast, most of the Polynesians had golden-brown skin, raven-black hair, and rather flat noses. Heyerdahl claimed that when Jakob Roggeveen first discovered Easter Island in 1722, he supposedly noticed that many of the natives were white-skinned. Heyerdahl claimed that these people could count their ancestors who were "white-skinned" right back to the time of Tiki and Hotu Matua, when they first came sailing across the sea "from a mountainous land in the east which was scorched by the sun." The ethnographic evidence for these claims is outlined in Heyerdahl's book Aku Aku: The Secret of Easter Island.
Heyerdahl proposed that Tiki's neolithic people colonized the then-uninhabited Polynesian islands as far north as Hawaii, as far south as New Zealand, as far east as Easter Island, and as far west as Samoa and Tonga around 500 AD. They supposedly sailed from Peru to the Polynesian islands on pae-paes--large rafts built from balsa logs, complete with sails and each with a small cottage. They built enormous stone statues carved in the image of human beings on Pitcairn, the Marquesas, and Easter Island that resembled those in Peru. They also built huge pyramids on Tahiti and Samoa with steps like those in Peru. But all over Polynesia, Heyerdahl found indications that Tiki's peaceable race had not been able to hold the islands alone for long. He found evidence that suggested that seagoing war canoes as large as Viking ships and lashed together two and two had brought Stone Age Northwest American Indians to Polynesia around 1100 AD, and they mingled with Tiki's people. The oral history of the people of Easter Island, at least as it was documented by Heyerdahl, is completely consistent with this theory, as is the archaeological record he examined (Heyerdahl 1958). In particular, Heyerdahl obtained a radiocarbon date of 400 AD for a charcoal fire located in the pit that was held by the people of Easter Island to have been used as an "oven" by the "Long Ears," which Heyerdahl's Rapa Nui sources, reciting oral tradition, identified as a white race which had ruled the island in the past (Heyerdahl 1958).
2.2 The common folk tales from the illiterate story telling past.
Bruno Bettelheim Gave Insight Into Preliterate Story Telling
I met Bruno Bettelheim at a Colloquia at SUNYAB in the 1980s. He had written about Nazi Concentration Camp experiences and survivors. He had written about children raised in kibbutzim and had written on autism. Much of what he said agreed with my experience. After speaking I had a chance to speak with him. I asked him if he was religious. He said no but that (from his research for The Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales) he learned much respect for the stories of the Jewish Bible.
Bruno said that in the preliterate story telling cultures that you could find many of the same type stories (like the "jealous brother") because with generations of elders passing on the stories the foolish stories got dropped and the ones with wisdom for the next generation got passed on.
The main point here is that before writing there were at times and places healthy cultures that had relationships with and respect for their elders and learned the wisdom ot the past from that relationship and respect.

The Uses of EnchantmentFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
|The Uses of Enchantment|
|LC Classification||GR550 .B47|
The Uses of Enchantment: The Meaning and Importance of Fairy Tales is a 1976 work by Bruno Bettelheim in which the author analyses fairy tales in terms of Freudian psychology.
In the book, Bettelheim discusses the emotional and symbolic importance of fairy tales for children, including traditional tales at one time considered too dark, such as those collected and published by the Brothers Grimm. Bettelheim suggested that traditional fairy tales, with the darkness of abandonment, death, witches, and injuries, allowed children to grapple with their fears in remote, symbolic terms. If they could read and interpret these fairy tales in their own way, he believed, they would get a greater sense of meaning and purpose. Bettelheim thought that by engaging with these socially evolved stories, children would go through emotional growth that would better prepare them for their own futures.
Structure and contents
The book is divided into two main sections. The first, "A Pocketful of Magic," outlines Bettelheim's thoughts on the value of fairy tales for children. The second part, "In Fairy Land," presents psychoanalytical readings of several popular fairy tales, specifically:
The book won the U.S. National Book Critics Circle Award for criticism in 1976 and the National Book Award in the category of Contemporary Thought in 1977.
The Uses of Enchantment has been cited as an influence in many subsequent works that utilise fairy tales in adult terms, including the 1986 Stephen Sondheim musical Into the Woods and the 2011 Catherine Hardwicke film Red Riding Hood.
The Uses of Enchantment has also been used as the title of a novel by Heidi Julavits and an Aria comic by Brian Holguin and Jay Anacleto.
2.5 Bruno Had A Life Time Of Caring For Autistic Children!
Wikipedia on Answers.com:
When his father died, Bettelheim left his studies at the University of Vienna to look after his family's lumber businessl. Bettelheim and his first wife Gina took care of Patsy, an American child whom he later described as autistic. Patsy lived in the Bettelheim home in Vienna for seven years. Having discharged his obligations to his family's business, Bettelheim returned as a mature student in his 30s to the University of Vienna. He earned a degree in philosophy, producing a dissertation on Immanuel Kant and on the history of art.
In the Austrian academic culture of Bettelheim's time, one could not study the history of art without mastering aspects of psychology. Candidates for the doctoral dissertation in the History of Art in 1938 at Vienna University had to fulfill prerequisites in the formal study of the role of Jungian archetypes in art, and in art as an expression of the Freudian subconscious.
Though Jewish by birth, Bettelheim grew up in a secular family. After the merging of Austria into Greater Germany (April 1938), the authorities sent him with other Austrian Jews to Dachau and Buchenwald concentration camps for 11 months from 1938 to 1939. In Buchenwald he met and befriended the social psychologist Ernst Federn. As a result of an amnesty declared for Hitler's birthday (April 20, 1939), Bettelheim and hundreds of other prisoners regained their freedom. Bettelheim drew on the experience of the concentration camps for some of his later work.
2.5.2 Life and career in the United States
Bettelheim arrived by ship as a refugee in New York City in the fall of 1939 to join his wife Gina, who had already emigrated. They divorced because she had become involved with someone else during their separation. He soon moved to Chicago and became a naturalized U.S. citizen in 1944 and remarried to an American.
The University of Chicago appointed Bettelheim as a professor of psychology and he taught there from 1944 until his retirement in 1973. He had trained in philosophy, but stated also that the Viennese psychoanalyst Richard Sterba had analyzed him.
Bettelheim also served as Director of the University of Chicago's Sonia Shankman Orthogenic School, a home that treats emotionally disturbed children. He made changes and set up an environment for milieu therapy, in which children could form strong attachments with adults within a structured but caring environment. He claimed considerable success in treating some of the emotionally disturbed children. He wrote books on both normal and abnormal child psychology and became a major influence in the field, widely respected during his lifetime. He was elected a Fellow of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1971.
Among numerous other works, Bruno Bettelheim wrote The Uses of Enchantment, published in 1976. In this book he analyzed fairy tales in terms of Freudian psychology. The book won the U.S. Critic's Choice Prize for criticism in 1976 and the National Book Award in the category of Contemporary Thought in 1977. Bettelheim discussed the emotional and symbolic importance of fairy tales for children, including traditional tales at one time considered too dark, such as those collected and published by the Brothers Grimm. Bettelheim suggested that traditional fairy tales, with the darkness of abandonment, death, witches, and injuries, allowed children to grapple with their fears in remote, symbolic terms. If they could read and interpret these fairy tales in their own way, he believed, they would get a greater sense of meaning and purpose. Bettelheim thought that by engaging with these socially-evolved stories, children would go through emotional growth that would better prepare them for their own futures.
His writings covered a wide range of topics, beginning shortly after he arrived in the United States with an essay on concentration camps and their dynamics. He long had a reputation as an authority on these topics.
At the end of his life Bettelheim suffered from depression. He appeared to have had difficulties with depression for much of his life. In 1990, widowed, in failing physical health, and suffering from the effects of a stroke which impaired his mental abilities and paralyzed part of his body, he committed suicide as a result of self-induced asphyxiation by placing a plastic bag over his head.
Bettelheim became one of the most prominent defenders of Hannah Arendt's book Eichmann in Jerusalem. He wrote a positive review for The New Republic. This review prompted a letter from the writer Harry Golden, who alleged that both Bettelheim and Arendt suffered from "an essentially Jewish phenomenon…self-hatred".
126.96.36.199 Theoretical controversy
Bettelheim's theories on the causes of autism have been discredited, and his reporting rates of cure have been questioned, with critics stating that his patients were not actually suffering from autism . Initially Bettelheim believed that autism did not have an organic basis, but resulted when mothers withheld appropriate affection from their children and failed to make a good connection with them. The most extreme expression of this concept suggested that mothers literally did not want their children to exist. Bettelheim also blamed absent or weak fathers. One of his most famous books, The Empty Fortress (1967), contains a complex and detailed explanation of this dynamic in psychoanalytical and psychological terms. He derived his thinking from the qualitative investigation of clinical cases. He also related the world of autistic children to conditions in concentration camps. In A Good Enough Parent, published in 1987, he had come to the view that children had considerable resilience and that most parents could be "good enough" to help their children make a good start.
Bettelheim subscribed to and became a prominent proponent of the "refrigerator mother" theory of autism: the theory that autistic behaviors stem from the emotional frigidity of the children's mothers, a view that enjoyed considerable influence into the 1960s and 1970s in the United States. However, some indications suggest that he later changed his thinking. Bettelheim's 1967 book The Empty Fortress: Infantile Autism and the Birth of the Self, which promoted the "refrigerator mother" theory of autism, enjoyed wide success, especially in the popular press. The book played a key role in ensuring that the "refrigerator mother" theory soon became the accepted explanation for autism in popular culture and, to a considerable extent, in professional circles.
Subsequently, medical research has provided greater understanding of biological bases of autism and other illnesses. Scientists[who?], most notably Bernard Rimland, have largely discredited Bettelheim's views on autism, although as of 2009[update] the "refrigerator mother" theory still retains some prominent supporters.
188.8.131.52 Personal controversy
In addition to reassessment of Bettelheim's psychological theories, controversy has arisen related to his history and personality. He had a prominent reputation as a compassionate man who had made a career of healing others and as an expert on the dynamics of the concentration camps.
After Bettelheim's suicide in 1990, detractors claimed that Bettelheim had a dark side. They alleged that he exploded in screaming anger at students, and went beyond firm treatment to corporal punishment or child abuse. Three former patients questioned his work and characterized him as a cruel tyrant. Roberta Carly Redford, a student at the Orthogenic School from age 16 to 23, claims in her book Crazy: My Seven Years at Bruno Bettelheim's Orthogeneic School that she was "beaten regularly, emotionally abused, and subjected to a variety of humiliations. Bettelheim himself was a key part of this treatment." Other former patients wrote or spoke publicly to tell how much Bettelheim had helped them, so there seemed to be no consensus.
Two biographies published in the 1990s revealed evidence that Bettelheim had lied about or exaggerated many parts of his background. These included wartime experiences, family life, academic credentials and the use of corporal punishment at the Orthogenic School. While Richard Pollak's biography expressed a strongly negative view of Bettelheim, that by Nina Sutton offered a different interpretation of some of the material. Gaps emerged between the public reputation Bettelheim had established in the US and some of the facts revealed during this controversy, but some commentators made charges that related to Bettelheim's personality.
The resulting discussions and controversy called into question whether the University of Chicago had screened Bettelheim closely enough, although appointments to administrative positions such as director of the school do not require an academic appointment. Many parents[who?] who had children at the school claimed that his treatment had helped their children and continued to consider him a compassionate man.
2.5.4 Bettelheim on the impact of bodily experience
According to Bettelheim, children — when treated with loving care — will internalize the care and love experienced in childhood respecting their bodies and their own person. The loving attitude of the parents towards the body of their child and its actions will transform into the child's holding its own body in high esteem, wishing to care for and protect it.
2.5.5 Popular culture
In 1974 a four-part series featuring Bruno Bettelheim and directed by Daniel Carlin appeared on French television — Portrait de Bruno Bettelheim.
Woody Allen included Bettelheim as himself in a cameo in the film Zelig (1983).
A BBC Horizon documentary about Bettelheim was screened in 1986.
Two former patients wrote about their experiences at the Orthogenics School, one in a novel and one in a memoir. Tom Lyons' novel The Pelican and After appeared in 1983. Stephen Eliot's brought out his memoir, Not the Thing I Was: Thirteen Years at Bruno Bettelheim's Orthogenics School, in 2003.
Bruno Bettelheim, eminent scholar and educator, directed the University of Chicago’s
Orthogenic School for nearly thirty years. He published sixteen books and numerous scholarly
papers and essays. The main thrust of his writing was his application of psychoanalytic
principles to problems in education, society, and the family. He also devoted several works to
reinterpreting psychoanalysis in light of his formative years in Vienna, and under the impact of
his admired mentors and colleagues: educator and philosopher John Dewey; and
psychoanalysts August Aichhorn, Anna Freud, Erik Erikson, and Sigmund Freud himself.
Psychoanalytic applications: the orthogenic school
Many of Bettelheim’s publications dealt with his modifications of psychoanalysis to fit the milieu he created for severely disturbed youth at the Orthogenic School, one of the University of Chicago’s laboratory schools. An example of the university’s dedication to renovating primary and secondary education, Bettelheim’s treatment milieu was strongly influenced by the ideas of John Dewey. Bettelheim combined his interest in reshaping psychoanalysis with the inventive, inquiring spirit that permeated the university’s Department of Education and the University of Chicago as a whole.
Dewey’s works (1965) in combination with psychoanalytic works provided the theory. But August Aichhorn was probably Bettelheim’s greatest inspiration in fashioning the Orthogenic School. Aichhorn (1965) wrote that the problems of ‘dissocial’ youth could only be remedied by taking them out of the home environment, which had precipitated the antisocial behavior, and putting them in a training school. Similarly, Bettelheim (1950, 1955, 1967, 1974) wrote at length that severely disturbed youngsters must be removed from the environment which fostered their symptoms and housed in an especially designed treatment milieu based on psychoanalytic principles. Although psychoanalysis proper could not be applied to every waking moment, Bettelheim thoroughly described an orderly institutional structure that combined an observational approach with a psychoanalytic interpretation of events.
Foremost was Bettelheim’s idea that, because the child had suffered anguish in his inability to sustain himself in the family, he needed ‘central persons’ in his life at the school. These important persons were to be nurturing, observing and interpreting: the heart of the child’s existence. Speaking psychoanalytically, one might say that the mainstays of the child’s life (counselors and teachers) functioned as ego supports to these extraordinarily needy young people whose ego functioning had lapsed, often for years, before they were admitted to the Orthogenic School. ...

2.5.9 Bruno was attacked by Zionists and Women's LiberationNote [dj]: Bruno was attacked by two of the strongest socio-political groups - the Zionists and Women's Liberation. The Zionists because of his forward to "Auschwitz" where he said the Jews were to attached to there material good and refused to leave (though many sent their children away). The women's liberationists because he recognized (as Leo Kanner called attention to what appeared to him as a lack of warmth among the fathers and mothers of autistic children. ). The politics are so strong at the Universities today that you may lose your funding, promotion of position by saying these truths! How sad to be dehumanized for saying the truth!
The references to Bruno's children have disappeared but it may be that they did not support him and were part of his discouragement in the nursing home.
2.6 The Increase In Autism Is Due To A Poor Maternal Bond!

We are living in stupidity on the rise! Amish tend not to get vaccinated and they have 100 times lower autism rate so women's liberationist say it is proof that vaccine causes Autism! How evil to not see the need to respect every child's right to life and a maternal nursing bond as they tend to get in the Amish culture!
2.6.1 Autism Court cases - Further information: Vaccine court
2010 Millions of Dollars Pending - 2013 Given
From 1988 until August 2010, 5,632 claims relating to autism were made to Office of Special Masters of the U.S. Court of Federal Claims (commonly known as the "Vaccine Court") which oversees vaccine injury claims, of which one case has received compensation, 738 cases have been dismissed with no compensations made, and with the remaining cases pending. In the one case which received compensation, the U.S. government agreed to pay for injury to a child that had a pre-existing mitochondrial disorder who developed autism-like symptoms after multiple vaccinations, some of which included thiomersal. Citing the inability to rule out a role of these vaccinations in exacerbating her underlying mitochondrial disorder as the rationale for payment, CDC officials cautioned against generalizing this one case to all autism-related vaccine cases as most patients with autism do not have a mitochondrial disorder. In February 2009, this court also ruled on three autism-related cases, each exploring different mechanisms that plaintiffs proposed linked thiomersal-containing vaccines with autism. Three judges independently found no evidence that vaccines caused autism and denied the plaintiffs compensation. Since these same mechanisms formed the basis for the vast majority of remaining autism-related vaccine injury cases, the chance for compensation in any of these cases has significantly decreased. In March 2010, the court ruled in three other test cases that thiomersal-containing vaccines do not cause autism.
2013 Vaccine Court Awards Millions to Two Children With Autism
The federal Vaccine Injury Compensation Program, better known as "vaccine court," has just awarded millions of dollars to two children with autism for "pain and suffering" and lifelong care of their injuries, which together could cost tens of millions of dollars.
The government did not admit that vaccines caused autism, at least in one of the children. Both cases were "unpublished," meaning information is limited, and access to medical records and other exhibits is blocked. Much of the information presented here comes from documents found at the vaccine court website.
Some observers will say the vaccine-induced encephalopathy (brain disease) documented in both children is unrelated to their autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Others will say there is plenty of evidence to suggest otherwise.
What's more, these cases fit the pattern of other petitions, (i.e., Poling and Banks) in which the court ruled (or the government conceded) that vaccines had caused encephalopathy, which in turn produced permanent injury, including symptoms of autism and ultimately an ASD diagnosis.
And most of these children now have taxpayer dollars earmarked for applied behavioral analysis (ABA), an effective therapy specifically designed to treat ASD.
Meanwhile, parents, grandparents, friends and neighbors of both children testified they were developmentally normal, if not advanced for their age when they developed seizures, spiking fevers and other adverse reactions to their vaccines. According to these eyewitnesses, the children never fully recovered, and instead began losing vocabulary, eye contact and interest in others around them, all classic symptoms of regressive autism.
In the first case, involving a 10-year-old boy from Northern California named Ryan Mojabi, the parents allege that "all the vaccinations" received from 2003-2005, and "more specifically, measles-mumps-rubella (MMR) vaccinations," caused a "severe and debilitating injury to his brain, described as Autism Spectrum Disorder ('ASD')."
The parents, who did not want to be interviewed, specifically asserted that Ryan "suffered a Vaccine Table Injury, namely, an encephalopathy" as a result of his MMR vaccination on December 19, 2003." ("Table injuries" are known, compensable adverse reactions to immunizations.)
Alternatively, they claim that "as a cumulative result of his receipt of each and every vaccination between March 25, 2003 and February 22, 2005, Ryan has suffered . . . neuroimmunologically mediated dysfunctions in the form of asthma and ASD."
In vaccine court, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services acts as the defendant and Justice Department attorneys act as counsel.
In 2009, Ryan's case was transferred to vaccine court's Autism Omnibus Proceedings, according to the docket. A year-and-a-half later, the government conceded that MMR vaccine had indeed caused Ryan's encephalopathy.
HHS agreed that "Ryan suffered a Table injury under the Vaccine Act -- namely, an encephalitis within five to fifteen days following receipt," of MMR, records show. "This case is appropriate for compensation."
Whether HHS agreed with Ryan's parents that his vaccine-induced brain disease led to ASD is unknown. The concession document is under seal.
In December 2003, when Ryan was nearly two, he received his first MMR and hepatitis B vaccines before his family left for an extended trip overseas. That day, his mother testified, Ryan began shaking with uncontrollable tremors and "was really uncomfortable, he didn't feel well at all."
The nurse at Ryan's pediatrician said the symptoms were "pretty normal after the vaccination," and advised Tylenol. The next day, Ryan began crying, "but it's not a normal crying," his mother testified. "He didn't go to sleep, he was without energy."
The family considered postponing their holiday, but that wasn't feasible. The doctor's office said it was fine to travel. Prior to leaving, Ryan's mother said, the boy had difficulty breathing and "was without energy and sleepy." He could no longer hold his head up, something "he could do prior to the vaccinations." At the airport, Ryan began "screaming," she recalled. "He was just opening and closing his eyes so hard, he was pulling my hair."
After his shots, she added, Ryan "stopped saying those words that he had, even mommy and daddy, that he had repeated a hundred times before."
In early January, while still abroad, Ryan was rushed to the hospital with vomiting, high fever and red spots covering his body "from head to toe in a measles-like rash," the attending physician said. Ryan was diagnosed with "febrile convulsion, probably related to MMR."
The next day, another doctor diagnosed him with "high fever, skin rash, tremors, and lethargy," which were "most likely due to an adverse reaction to multiple vaccines he received earlier."
Two days later, Ryan returned to the hospital with a persistent fever of 104 or more.
Ryan's parents testified that, upon returning home, they expressed worry to their pediatrician about behavioral problems, non-responsiveness and language loss, which later produced an ASD diagnosis.
At trial, however, the government argued powerfully that written medical records, and the recollections of Ryan's doctor, were inconsistent with his parents' testimony. If Ryan had truly suffered an MMR encephalopathy, for example, his family would never have taken him overseas. And his parents' complaints of ASD symptoms were raised a full year after returning from abroad, they alleged. It looked like the family had a weak case.
But then something changed.
In October, 2010, Ryan's attorney filed four new exhibits (under seal) and proposed amending the court's "findings of fact." In January and May of 2011, several more exhibits were filed, along with a motion to further supplement the findings of fact.
A month later HHS conceded the case, which moved into the damages phase.
Award details were announced a few days ago: A lump sum of $969,474.91, to cover "lost future earnings ($648,132.74), pain and suffering ($202,040.17), and life care expenses for Year One ($119,302.00)," plus $20,000 for past expenses.
Another undisclosed sum, several millions more, will be invested in annuities to cover yearly costs for life, which could total $10 million or more, not accounting for inflation. Nearly $80,000 was earmarked for ABA in the first two years.
The second case involves a girl named Emily, whose mother, Jillian Moller, filed back in 2003 and has been fighting in vaccine court since. The docket, crammed with 188 items, documents Moller's extended but victorious struggle to win compensation for Emily, who has seizure disorder and PDD-NOS, a form of ASD.
Moller alleged that Emily was severely injured by a reaction to the DTaP vaccine at 15 months (when MMR, HiB and Prevnar were also given). "She had a vaccine reaction and she just spiraled out of control," Moller said in an interview.
Emily's fever spiked to 105.7 and she began screaming. She stared blankly and developed seizures. Before long she began "shaking episodes" at night and "repetitive behaviors, including arm flapping and spinning," court documents show. Like Ryan, she developed a measles-type rash.
Things went from bad to worse. Emily's medical record is filled with damage and suffering. One neurologist, for example, noted that Emily "had staring spells and an abnormal EEG." Another diagnosed "encephalopathy characterized by speech delay and probable global developmental delay that occurred in the setting of temporal association with immunizations as an acute encephalopathy."
Moller filed for an encephalopathy Table injury in 2003, unaware her daughter would be diagnosed with ASD.
Two hearings were held in 2005. "I was badgered and harassed for four hours on the stand," she said. "They said Emily couldn't have been that sick, or else I would've taken her to the ER. But I took her to my doctor and he said not to bring her to the hospital!"
Government lawyers insisted that Emily had suffered neither a vaccine injury nor encephalopathy. But every alternative cause they suggested "made no sense, because she showed no signs of those things before that vaccination," Moller said.
The case dragged on for years, with motions and counter-motions, status reports and expert medical reports. In 2007, Moller filed for summary judgment. That also took years, as more medical records were submitted to bolster Emily's case.
After the ASD diagnosis, the judge reportedly became convinced that Emily would prevail. "My attorney said she was angry, she felt forced into a corner with no choice but to find for us," Moller said. "She said, 'Emily has autism, and I don't want to give other families who filed autism claims any hope.'"
The government agreed to settle. Last spring the case went into mediation and, on December 3 HHS made its proffer, which was entered into the record on the 28th. Emily was awarded a lump sum of $1,030,314.22 "for lost future earnings ($739,989.57), pain and suffering ($170,499.77) and life care expenses for Year One ($119,874.88) plus $190,165.40 for past expenses." Some of that money will go to ABA therapy.
Based on the first year payout, another estimated $9 million will buy annuities for annual expenses through life, which after inflation has the potential to pay over $50 million dollars.
HHS did not admit that vaccination caused encephalopathy or autism, but merely decided not to dedicate more resources to defending the case.
"I don't understand why they fought so hard," Moller said. "We had the evidence: the EEG, the MRI, everything was consistent with encephalopathy, post-vaccination. How can government attorneys claim what our doctors said happened, didn't happen?"
Perhaps the feds were loath to concede yet another vaccine case involving autism. Four cases in the Autism Omnibus Proceedings were recently compensated. Three of those cases are marked with asterisks, indicating the government did not conclude that autism can be caused by vaccines. But the fourth autism case that was paid out in 2013 (Ryan's case? We don't know) has no such caveat.
As for Emily, she is "not too good," Moller said. "Her emotional state is fragile, at best. She has seizure problems and autoimmune issues... And it's a constant fight when you have a vaccine-injured child. It's not just the disability, it's the ignorance. The hatred from the medical community towards families like ours is intense."
Meanwhile, as HHS says it "has never concluded in any case that autism was caused by vaccination," it is still underwriting autism treatments such as ABA for children in its vaccine-injury program.

Autism has gone from about 1 in 15,000 in 1939 to more than 1 in 150 in 2010. The Amish have less than 1% the autism rate but people dismiss the nursing bong and mother in the home blaming it on vaccinations even thought the Doctor in England that published that false research has lost his license and his article withdrawn for the Lancet.
'Lancet' medical journal retracts study linking vaccine to autism Posted 2/2/2010
The retraction by The Lancet comes a day after a competing medical journal, BMJ, issued an embargoed commentary calling for The Lancet to formally retract the study. The commentary was to have been published on Wednesday.
The BMJ commentary said once the study by British surgeon and medical researcher Andrew Wakefield and his colleagues appeared in 1998 in The Lancet, "the arguments were considered by many to be proven and the ghastly social drama of the demon vaccine took on a life of its own."
Since the controversial paper was published, British parents abandoned the vaccine in droves, leading to a resurgence of measles. Subsequent studies have found no proof that the vaccine is connected to autism, though some parents are still wary of the shot.
In Britain, vaccination rates for measles have never recovered and there are outbreaks of the disease every year.
Ten of Wakefield's 13 co-authors renounced the study's conclusions several years ago and The Lancet has previously said it should never have published the research.
"We fully retract this paper from the published record," Lancet editors said in a statement Tuesday.
Last week, Britain's General Medical Council ruled that Wakefield had shown a "callous disregard" for the children used in his study and acted unethically. Wakefield and the two colleagues who have not renounced the study face being stripped of their right to practice medicine in Britain.
For the study, Wakefield took blood samples from children at his son's birthday party, paying them 5 pounds each ($8) for their contributions and later joking about the incident.
The problem is the lack of caring stimulation in a part of the brain when nerve growth factor is present. Just like the studies of covering an animals eyes during development, though uncovered later the visual cortex and vision never developed properly!
Now MRI studies are showing the children that have been deprived long before the bodily growth that reflects autism!
184.108.40.206 Early demonstration of the effect from lack of a healthy nursing bond.
Children who develop autism have pervasive abnormalities of brain white matter and altered neural developmental trajectories even before symptoms appear, researchers demonstrated on imaging studies.
At 6 months of age, at-risk infants who later showed typical symptoms of autism had higher fractional anisotropy on MRI, reflecting increased anxonal diameter, myelination, and fiber density in areas such as the left fornix (P=0.04) and the left inferior longitudinal fasciculus (P=0.01), according to Jason J. Wolff, PhD, of the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill, and colleagues.
But by 24 months, at-risk children who did not develop the disorder had higher anisotropic values in the left anterior limb of the internal capsule (P=0.04) and for left anterior thalamic radiation (P=0.003), the researchers reported online in the American Journal of Psychiatry.
"Autism is increasingly considered a disorder characterized in part by aberrant neural circuitry," they wrote.
An enlarging body of literature is demonstrating that the abnormalities involve several areas of white matter, but the extent and course of these developmental anomalies -- beginning as early as 6 months -- have not previously been explored.
Accordingly, Wolff and colleagues enrolled 92 children considered to be at risk for autism because they had a sibling with the disorder, and performed diffusion tensor imaging beginning at 6 months of age.
The MRI scans -- done while the children slept -- were repeated at 12 months and 24 months, along with cognitive testing on the Mullen Scales of Early Learning.
At age 2, the children were assessed for behavioral development using the Autism Diagnostic Observation Schedule; at that time 28 infants met the criteria for autism spectrum disorder.
The affected infants also had scores on the Mullen scales that were 12 points lower than the children who developed normally (P=0.04).
The researchers scanned a total of 15 white matter tracts in each child and identified significant differences in trajectories for 12 of the tracts, with rapid changes occurring in the normal infants between 6 and 24 months.
"Most fiber tracts for the [autism spectrum disorder]-positive infants were characterized by higher fractional anisotropy at 6 months followed by blunted developmental trajectories such that fractional anisotropy was lower by 24 months," observed Wolff and colleagues.
The widespread nature of the abnormalities suggests that multiple areas of the brain are affected in autism, and the fact that changes were detected in advance of symptoms argues in favor of a "neurobiological foundation" for autism.
Both structural and experiential processes contribute to the development of the brain, and the physical abnormalities seen on MRI in this study may interfere with fine neural signal transmission capabilities needed for successful social learning, resulting in the behavioral disturbances that begin to be seen around 2 years of age, the researchers explained.
They recommended further work to extend brain imaging even earlier than 6 months in at-risk children in the hope of identifying markers that signal incipient developmental dysregulation.
"Identifying infants at highest risk for [autism spectrum disorders] before the full syndrome is manifest offers the possibility of implementing interventions that could reduce or even prevent the manifestation of the full syndrome," they wrote.
Limitations of the study included the lack of a low-risk control group, and reliance on fractional anisotropy to assess white matter development.
The study was supported by the National Institute of Child Health and Development, Autism Speaks, the Simons Foundation, and the National Alliance for Medical Image Computing.

Journal of Psychiatry
220.127.116.11 I will explain why and how I know the evil here appears as an angel of light.
My Insightful Background:
As Chairperson of the Adult Education Committee at the Unitarian Universalist Church, I organized an public 8 week Sunday after church seminar titled The Needs Of Children.
The first speaker was my friend the Erie County Commissioner of Health - Dr. Don Thomas MD. He spoke on the pregnancy and early child health risks. The babies most at risk were those of teenage unwed mothers. Worst at that time was the Hispanic community because the pregnant teen was rejected as immoral.
The Psychiatrist Bruno Shutkeker spoke on the Four Levels of Love from studies at Columbia University (1 Narcissistic , 2 Homoerotic, 3 Hetroerotic and 4 Altruistic.) I later filled in the missing upper levels and discovered that they correlated with the levels of emotion!)
Dr. Donofrio from the Western NY Child and Adolescent Psychiatric Clinic spoke on teenagers. (the clinic is the main referral center for troubled youth from in the school in Erie County, New York. As the narrator after he spoke I was the first in the question and answer period. I said that I thought it was my fatherless "bad boys" on the street with leather jackets boots and chain that had psychiatric problems but that did not sound like the clients he was describing. He said the boys on the street were learning and developing social skill at the (during that brain growth stage), it was the children not given the freedom of social interaction that had permanent problems (in lacking social skills and insights).
The series was very popular and social service people including representatives of Catholic Social Services.
Well, then I received an invitation to be part of a committee to reestablish a "not for profit youth services organization". It had been founded by the Presbyterian Church and had stopped functioning, but it still existed legally.
In the process I discovered that the main players were out of work Social Services People and Administrators. They wanted to get started on fund raising (for child services) so they could get a salary.
From my work establishing an after school child care program (for "latch-key children") for children who went home before there mother got out of work, I had ended up as chairman of the board of the seventeen church charity (Concern Ecumenical Ministries of The Upper West Side) of Buffalo that had been organized by a pair from the Saul Alinsky Foundation of Chicago.
I saw there that the main function of the program was to raise money to pay the staff's salary. But the volunteers had done a great job in confronting corrupt city administration in not dealing with "slum land lords" and housing inspection and enforcement.
These people "caring" for autistic children are in reality serving the mothers that are in denial and raising money for their salary in the process! Instead of fighting for children's rights to life and a healthy maternal nursing bond for three to six years they are serving the violators and making money for doing it!.
2.8 To see reality with 20/20 vision.
Whether now or in the development of writing and mathematics there is a source of sociopathic development that comes with hireling child care, the broken maternal nursing bond and failure of the paternal authority figure bond. This has a genetic component that we will clarify after more background.
In the late 1960's I worked at Carborundum Research on nuclear reactor ceramic components. Affirmative action policies of the federal government on hiring women and minorities meant that to get a contract we had to hire women and minorities even though less qualified and had to give them equivalent salaries. Hence, we had single young women interested in money for fancy clothes, cars, apartments, furnishings, entertainment and vacations getting nearly the same salary as a highly qualified young man with a wife and five children!
Then I went to teaching High School Physics. The school was on the same plot of land as the new SUNY at Amherst campus. It was common to have children of the professors as student. It was clear that there was a lot of political/social and guidance councilor pressure on female students to take math and science. They were encouraged to become doctors, scientist and lawyers. The role of mother never came up accept for unwanted pregnancy. The topic of legalizing the murder of human life in the womb was common then as legalizing postpartum murder and murdering old people is today.
That reminds me that in the mid 1990's I told my doctor at the Buffalo Veterans Hospital how it was difficult caring for my mother as she was losing her memory. She said, "Don't you wish they would just die!" This women had been posted as the employee of the month!
I made a formal complaint and on my next check up she was not there and I was glad.
Regarding the rejection of motherhood with a stay at home nursing bond, I do not now much influence is genetic (we will talk more about that source later), how much is the lack of mammalian development due to day care during those brain growth stages and how much is the social and political pressure of guidance councilors and society, but women that who reject the role of mother with maternal nursing bond have much higher rates of breast and uterine cancer.
Suicide rates for women physicians are approximately four times that of women in the general population.[1,9]  Council on Scientific Affairs: Results and implications of the AMA-APA Physician Mortality Project, Stage II.

Professional women are 50 per cent more likely to die of breast cancer than unskilled workers, official figures have revealed.

We need to respect the human rights of children to have a maternal nursing bond with the mother who's voice it knows from the womb and father, family and home love, care and responsibility without being indoctrinated with memorization before the age of reason! Germany has thrived on its' ability to produce products for the world and health care for the world that has set a world standard. That will decline at a greater rate now because in 2011 Germany removed restrictions "out of the home" child care, which was a big incentive for "in the home" child care. Of course the misguided politicized liberationist academicians and legislators greet support for public child care and an advance (But for who? And what are the future long term implications? - After four life-times (with the generational magnification of the child-maternal nursing bond disabling) it is a dying society.
Maternity/parental leave is the most basic entitlement for working women, requiring employers to give workers their jobs back after taking necessary time off to give birth. The US introduced its first federal unpaid family and medical leave policy in 1993 for workers at medium- to large-sized firms. In France, the first paid maternity leave legislation was implemented eighty years earlier, in 1913 (Lewis 166). The length of leave varies between the countries discussed in this paper from up to three months unpaid in the US for some workers (partially paid in several states), to about three months at 60 percent pay in Japan (the rest of the first year at 40 percent pay), to three years paid in Germany and France. Italy offers an additional 5 years unpaid after the first three paid years. http://www.contemporaryfamilies.org/work-family/fampolicy.html
The extent to which a country makes child care services available and accessible, and how sufficient are funds provided for child care to meet the demand for them, reflect beliefs about the centrality of parental care. For example, much of the antipathy toward child care (public or private sector) among Americans stems from the belief that non-parents can never give as good care to a child as his or her 'real' parents. Despite its appearance as sweeping new legislation, Germany's recent measure entitling every child between three and six a place in a day care center also reflects Germany's typical preference for private at-home care by mothers, since the centers are part-time and relatively expensive, and thus incompatible with work hours (Bettio and Prechal 31). France, on the other hand, sees its public child care/nursery schools as a way to ensure high-quality early childhood education for all children and enhance community cohesion. Even many stay-at-home mothers in France send their children to the public nursery schools (Bergmann). http://www.contemporaryfamilies.org/work-family/fampolicy.html
It is clear from the academic literature on child care that the political agenda (like that of Hillary Clinton) is to deny a child's right to a full time maternal nursing bond with the voice recognition coming from the womb.

The truth is more like "Every bodies baby is nobody's baby!"
East Germany is not as socially degraded as Russia where communism broke down the respect for working fathers and mothers in the home a generation earlier. But read the next few paragraphs. East Germany is a sick society compared to West Germany but the women's liberation socialists just don't make the connection individual homes, respect for marriage and maternal responsibility for child rearing in the formative years.
From ehow: Daycare remains a work in progress in Germany. Some 20 years after reunification, differences between Eastern and Western Germany still exist, as evidenced by the availability of child care. In the east, daycare has stayed plentiful, owing to the former political and social structure. The west suffers from scare daycare, which often lacks quality, according to Barbara Holthus of the German Institute for Japanese Studies in Tokyo.
According to Holthus, Germany's income tax structure favors working fathers and stay-at-home mothers. If both husband and wife work outside of the home, they could face penalties to an extent that the second income actually results in a financial deficit.

2.9 One Woman's Perspective of Nazi Austria.
A very interesting read. 1938 Austria - by Kitty who is now 85 years old.
America truly is the Greatest Country in the World.
By: Kitty Werthmann
What I am about to tell you is something you've probably never heard or will ever read in history books.
I believe that I am an eyewitness to history. I cannot tell you that Hitler took Austria by tanks and guns; it would distort history. We elected him by a landslide - 98% of the vote. I've never read that in any American publications. Everyone thinks that Hitler just rolled in with his tanks and took Austria by force.
In 1938, Austria was in deep Depression. Nearly one-third of our workforce was unemployed. We had 25% inflation and 25% bank loan interest rates. Farmers and business people were declaring bankruptcy daily. Young people were going from house to house begging for food. Not that they didn't want to work; there simply weren't any jobs. My mother was a Christian woman and believed in helping people in need. Every day we cooked a big kettle of soup and baked bread to feed those poor, hungry people - about 30 daily.
The Communist Party and the National Socialist Party were fighting each other. Blocks and blocks of cities like Vienna , Linz , and Graz , were destroyed. The people became desperate and petitioned the government to let them decide what kind of government they wanted.
We looked to our neighbor on the north, Germany , where Hitler had been in power since 1933. We had been told that they didn't have unemployment or crime, and they had a high standard of living. Nothing was ever said about persecution of any group -- Jewish or otherwise. We were led to believe that everyone was happy. We wanted the same way of life in Austria . We were promised that a vote for Hitler would mean the end of unemployment and help for the family. Hitler also said that businesses would be assisted, and farmers would get their farms back. Ninety-eight percent of the population voted to annex Austria to Germany and have Hitler for our ruler.
We were overjoyed, and for three days we danced in the streets and had candlelight parades. The new government opened up big field kitchens and everyone was fed.
After the election, German officials were appointed, and like a miracle, we suddenly had law and order. Three or four weeks later, everyone was employed. The government made sure that a lot of work was created through the Public Work Service.
Hitler decided we should have equal rights for women. Before this, it was a custom that married Austrian women did not work outside the home. An able-bodied husband would be looked down on if he couldn't support his family. Many women in the teaching profession were elated that they could retain the jobs they previously had been required to give up for marriage.
2.9.2 Hitler Targets Education - Eliminates Religious Instruction for Children:
Our education was nationalized. I attended a very good public school. The population was predominantly Catholic, so we had religion in our schools. The day we elected Hitler (March 13, 1938), I walked into my schoolroom to find the crucifix replaced by Hitler's picture hanging next to a Nazi flag. Our teacher, a very devout woman, stood up and told the class we wouldn't pray or have religion anymore. Instead, we sang "Deutschland, Deutschland, Uber Alles," and had physical education.
Sunday became National Youth Day with compulsory attendance. Parents were not pleased about the sudden change in curriculum. They were told that if they did not send us, they would receive a stiff letter of warning the first time. The second time they would be fined the equivalent of $300, and the third time they would be subject to jail. The first two hours consisted of political indoctrination. The rest of the day we had sports. As time went along, we loved it. Oh, we had so much fun and got our sports equipment free. We would go home and gleefully tell our parents about the wonderful time we had.
My mother was very unhappy. When the next term started, she took me out of public school and put me in a convent. I told her she couldn't do that and she told me that someday when I grew up, I would be grateful. There was a very good curriculum, but hardly any fun - no sports, and no political indoctrination. I hated it at first but felt I could tolerate it. Every once in a while, on holidays, I went home. I would go back to my old friends and ask what was going on and what they were doing. Their loose lifestyle was very alarming to me. They lived without religion. By that time unwed mothers were glorified for having a baby for Hitler. It seemed strange to me that our society changed so suddenly. As time went along, I realized what a great deed my mother did so that I wasn't exposed to that kind of humanistic philosophy.
2.9.3 Equal Rights Hits Home:
In 1939, the war started and a food bank was established. All food was rationed and could only be purchased using food stamps. At the same time, a full-employment law was passed which meant if you didn't work, you didn't get a ration card, and if you didn't have a card, you starved to death. Women who stayed home to raise their families didn't have any marketable skills and often had to take jobs more suited for men.
Soon after this, the draft was implemented. It was compulsory for young people, male and female, to give one year to the labor corps. During the day, the girls worked on the farms, and at night they returned to their barracks for military training just like the boys. They were trained to be anti-aircraft gunners and participated in the signal corps. After the labor corps, they were not discharged but were used in the front lines. When I go back to Austria to visit my family and friends, most of these women are emotional cripples because they just were not equipped to handle the horrors of combat. Three months before I turned 18, I was severely injured in an air raid attack. I nearly had a leg amputated, so I was spared having to go into the labor corps and into military service.
2.9.4 Hitler Restructured the Family Through Daycare:
When the mothers had to go out into the work force, the government immediately established child care centers. You could take your children ages 4 weeks to school age and leave them there around-the-clock, 7 days a week, under the total care of the government. The state raised a whole generation of children.. There were no motherly women to take care of the children, just people highly trained in child psychology. By this time, no one talked about equal rights. We knew we had been had.
2.9.5 Health Care and Small Business Suffer Under Government Controls:
Before Hitler, we had very good medical care.
Many American doctors trained at the University of Vienna . After Hitler, health care was socialized, free for everyone. Doctors were salaried by the government. The problem was, since it was free, the people were going to the doctors for everything. When the good doctor arrived at his office at 8 a.m., 40 people were already waiting and, at the same time, the hospitals were full. If you needed elective surgery, you had to wait a year or two for your turn. There was no money for research as it was poured into socialized medicine. Research at the medical schools literally stopped, so the best doctors left Austria and emigrated to other countries.
As for healthcare, our tax rates went up to 80% of our income. Newlyweds immediately received a $1,000 loan from the government to establish a household. We had big programs for families. All day care and education were free. High schools were taken over by the government and college tuition was subsidized. Everyone was entitled to free handouts, such as food stamps, clothing, and housing.
We had another agency designed to monitor business. My brother-in-law owned a restaurant that had square tables. Government officials told him he had to replace them with round tables because people might bump themselves on the corners. Then they said he had to have additional bathroom facilities. It was just a small dairy business with a snack bar. He couldn't meet all the demands. Soon, he went out of business. If the government owned the large businesses and not many small ones existed, it could be in control.
We had consumer protection. We were told how to shop and what to buy. Free enterprise was essentially abolished. We had a planning agency specially designed for farmers. The agents would go to the farms, count the live-stock, then tell the farmers what to produce, and how to produce it.
2.9.6 "Mercy Killing" Redefined:
In 1944, I was a student teacher in a small village in the Alps . The villagers were surrounded by mountain passes which, in the winter, were closed off with snow, causing people to be isolated. So people intermarried and offspring were sometimes retarded. When I arrived, I was told there were 15 mentally retarded adults, but they were all useful and did good manual work. I knew one, named Vincent, very well. He was a janitor of the school. One day I looked out the window and saw Vincent and others getting into a van. I asked my superior where they were going. She said to an institution where the State Health Department would teach them a trade, and to read and write. The families were required to sign papers with a little clause that they could not visit for 6 months. They were told visits would interfere with the program and might cause homesickness.
As time passed, letters started to dribble back saying these people died a natural, merciful death. The villagers were not fooled. We suspected what was happening. Those people left in excellent physical health and all died within 6 months. We called this euthanasia.
2.9.7 The Final Steps - Gun Laws:
Next came gun registration. People were getting injured by guns. Hitler said that the real way to catch criminals (we still had a few) was by matching serial numbers on guns. Most citizens were law abiding and dutifully marched to the police station to register their firearms. Not long after-wards, the police said that it was best for everyone to turn in their guns. The authorities already knew who had them, so it was futile not to comply voluntarily.
No more freedom of speech. Anyone who said something against the government was taken away. We knew many people who were arrested, not only Jews, but also priests and ministers who spoke up.
Totalitarianism didn't come quickly, it took 5 years from 1938 until 1943, to realize full dictatorship in Austria . Had it happened overnight, my countrymen would have fought to the last breath. Instead, we had creeping gradualism. Now, our only weapons were broom handles. The whole idea sounds almost unbelievable that the state, little by little eroded our freedom.
After World War II, Russian troops occupied Austria. Women were raped, preteen to elderly. The press never wrote about this either. When the Soviets left in 1955, they took everything that they could, dismantling whole factories in the process. They sawed down whole orchards of fruit, and what they couldn't destroy, they burned. We called it The Burned Earth. Most of the population barricaded themselves in their houses. Women hid in their cellars for 6 weeks as the troops mobilized. Those who couldn't, paid the price. There is a monument in Vienna today, dedicated to those women who were massacred by the Russians. This is an eye witness account.
"It's true..those of us who sailed past the Statue of Liberty came to a country of unbelievable freedom and opportunity.

I am a Russian resident and have taught Spoken English in Lithuania 1997, Belarus 1999, Russia 2000 to present. They are sick societies with broken families, drugs, alcohol and more abortions than live births. One publication says the average Russian women has had seven abortions!
From Wikipedia: Despite a significant reduction in the abortion to birth ratio since the mid-1990s, the countries of the former Soviet Union maintain the highest rate of abortions in the world. In 2001, 1,320,000 children were born in Russia, while 1,800,000 abortions were performed. In 2005, 1,600,000 abortions were registered in Russia; 20% of these involved young women under the age of majority. Official statistics put the number at 1,300,000 in 2009, though Russian pro-life activists say that number is much higher. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Abortion_in_Russia
Note this would be more stark if the Islamists with there birthing policy were separated from the ethnic Russians.
Professors and doctors of the behavioral sciences often don't want children, but If you had to teach their children, of those who do, it would be clear that as a group they are unable to raise children in their potential for caring and having a healthy life, family and community.
Book learning even when it is good information, it is still just a description of a reality and not the reality. Write a description of corn on paper. Put the description in the ground. It will not grow! How can we over come this academic ignorance of a certification society that teaches and places the ignorance in authority?
"By their fruits you shall know them." We need to respect the rights of children, the rights that show the highest probability of them being able to use the gift of life in a responsible and constructive way and couples that had raised healthy families need to be a prerequisite for positions of legal and political, governmental and societal responsibility. These rights include learning by investigation and learning math out of a need to know! Not by indoctrination and abstract memorization.
