A psychohistorical and psycho-spiritual approach is needed to wade through the current anti-antisemitism hysteria

The common sense view points to racism as being more a feature of the Right than Left. If, like me, you remember the terrifying skinhead marches around the East End’s Brick Lane on a Sunday morning while you were enjoying a kosher hot-salt beef sandwich and the amazing market we had then, you’ll have had…

Cambridge Analytica only the tip of an iceberg of British entitlement and duplicity?

We are right to be shocked at the scale of dirty dealings revealed by the only investigative reporting programme of mainstream media left, Channel 4 News.

Same old, same old … how to understand the Rees-Mogg problem.

Do you sometimes wonder, if, when you have fallen asleep after watching the UK news, that you may have woken up in 1898 instead of 2018? Why is British politics and many of its chief actors so weird? The answer lies in how we educate our elite – not much differently to how we did…

‘Surviving the Syndrome’ – a report on the sell-out conference at the University of Brighton

Saturday’s sell-out conference at the University of Brighton, Boarding School – Surviving the Syndrome, was described by many as the “best conference I have ever attended.” Partly this must be due to the great venue and excellent organisation by Laura and her team – to say nothing of the terrific catering! Do today’s students really…

Healing the trauma of yesteryear with the technology of tomorrow?

Wouldn’t it be great if we could heal the past, free ourselves from survival habits and go back to traumatic environments and make them safe? Well, a new research project at UCL (University College London) is looking for volunteers to try out Virtual Reality equipment and scenarios for the first time with an  accompanying psychotherapist….

On Pulling Down Statues

Last weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia shows once again how divided the world has become. It is much easier to contribute to this than to mend it, so I am unlikely to win too many friends with what follows. I’ll start by admitting that I don’t think it is helpful to pull down statues of…
