What I find rather funny, is that this kid's piece was a relatively
gentle reflection on his childhood and youth.
And he seems to have come to terms with what he felt may have been a
dysfunctional upbringing, and has been able to put that
dysfunctionality into perspective.
But it appears to have driven Barry, absolutely "bat shit crazy" that
the guy is not full of anger and resentment and lashing out at his
parents and the TM organization.
Barry evidently feels that the kid needs to be reeducated, or
deprogrammed, or at the very least, get a good scolding.
Barry cannot comprehend that one might be able to put things behind
them and move on.
Why would this be?
Maybe because Barry apparently has never been to any cult-exit
counseling to get therapy for his cognitive dissonance? Obviously this
guy calling himself the "TurquoiseB" is nuts and insane and goes bat
shit crazy at the very mention one of his dead teachers. Maybe Barry is
bi-polar and remains in a more or less permanent trance-induction state,
kind of like a programmed mechanical robot. Go figure.

You took the words out of my mouth (oops, bad analogy at the moment),
Ann. I chanced upon a recent photo of b on-line, and I have it in me,
less and less, to respond to, or comment on, his repetitious
diatribes. Kinda like mugging an old man. Seriously. So, what was fun
when I considered him a peer, isn't any longer. There are plenty of
other things that catch my mind, so, on to them!!

Or............what you are saying, is that he isn't reacting the way,
"I" think he should be reacting.
For most people who aren't obsessed with finding "cult" tendencies,
his piece is just a reflection, a writing exercise of sorts, dealing
with a piece of his growing up.
Obviously, you miss this, because you are so invested in your own
particular mindset, that you miss any nuance of what his purpose in
writing this piece might be.
And, of course we've seen many of examples of this, (missing nuance)
on your part, especially over the past few month. perhaps coinciding
with end of you technical writing gig at BB.
Good luck with this Barry. Try to step back, and take in a bigger
picture. The worldreally is bigger than the TMO and members of this
Steve, I'm sure you have something much better to do, like de-fleaing
the cat, than responding to or even reading bawee's mind loops here.
He only participates to hear himself talk and to see others respond to
him because there are only two or three people who seem to like him
and his life seems to consist of lonely trips to his drinking venues
and back "home" again. I give you an "A" for effort and compassion
here but I think your cat needs some attention. Don't you hear it
meowing for you?
