Did Crown Prince Rudolph really die at Mayerling?

Emperor Franz Joseph and his son Rudolf

Austria's Crown Prince Rudolf, born in 1858, was the only son of Emperor Franz Joseph and Empress Elisabeth.

Rudolf was married to Princess Stephanie of Belgium in 1881.

Reportedly, it was a loveless marriage.

Reportedly, on 30 January 1889, at the hunting lodge called Mayerling, Rudolf, and his 17 year old mistress Baroness Mary Vetsera, were found dead.

Rudolph and Stephanie

The official report on the deaths claimed that Rudolph shot Vetsera in the head before shooting himself with his own gun.

In 1992 the 'remains of Baroness Vetsera' were examined.

The skull contained no evidence of a bullet hole.

(Article about "Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria".)

A report on 'Rudolph's body', made at the time of his death, showed evidence of a violent struggle.

The report noted that the gun, said to be involved in the death of Rudolph, did not belong to Rudolph.


There have been claims that Rudolph was murdered, possibly on orders from his father, the Emperor.

Some suspect that Rudolph was assassinated by the Austrian secret police because he was seen as being too liberal.

Reportedly, Crown Prince Rudolph was associated with 'political Jews'. (Cached )

Empress Zita, the widow of the last Austrian Emperor Karl (1916-1918) claimed that Rudolph had been murdered after he had refused to take part in a French plot to depose his pro-German conservative father.

Marie Larisch

Rudolph had been inroduced to his mistress Mary Vetsera by Countess Marie Louise Larisch von Moennich, niece of the Empress Elisabeth.

Marie Louise Larisch was the illegitimate daughter of Ludwig Wilhelm, Duke of Bavaria (1831-1920) and actress Henriette Mendel (1833-1891). Countess Marie Larisch von Moennich - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Marie is said to have been given a great deal of "hush money" not to publish her memoirs.

Reportedly, she exiled herself to the United StatesUnited States in exchange for an annual pension.

But she did published her memoirs.

She claimed Rudolph had been shot by one of the Emperor's servants.

Eventually Archduke Franz-Ferdinand, who was assassinated in 1914, became the Emperor's heir.

Justo Armas

Justo Armas appeared in El Salvador in the late 19th century.

(Justo Armas)

He mixed with the top people.

He had upper-class European manners, spoke educated German and had a detailed knowledge of upper class European society and court affairs, including those of Austria.

There is a theory that Crown Prince Rudolf was not murdered but was allowed to go into exile.

And that Vetsera entered a convent.

Reportedly, Rudolf sailed from Hamburg to Argentina in a ship owned by his cousin, Archduke Johann Salvator.

Reportedly, Rudolf lived in Argentina for nearly ten years.

Reportedly, he moved to El Salvador in 1898 and died there in 1936.

Reportedly, Rudolph was Justo Armas.

Who really killed Franz Ferdinand?

And which Crown Prince is this?

There appears to be more than one Mohammad Ajmal Amir Qasab

On 20 July 2009, we are told that the Mumbai suspect has admitted his guilt

According to the BBC, 20 July 2009, little is known of the background of the alleged Mumbai 'terrorist' Mohammed Ajmal Amir Qasab.

Profile: Mohammad Ajmal Amir Qasab

According to the BBC, "Indian officials originally portrayed him as a middle-class boy who spoke good English.

"But subsequent reports suggested he came from a remote village called Faridkot, where his father sold food.

"He had received little education, the reports said, and had spent his youth alternating between labouring and petty crime."

Qasab reminds us of Lee Harvey Oswald who reportedly was sometimes in two places at once and had two different personalities. Apparently the CIA used two different Oswalds in its work.

Two Oswalds Theories in the JFK Assassination

Qasab reminds us of Mohammad Atta who reportedly had a double.


The Qasab case reminds us of the case involving the attack on the Indian Parliament in 2001.

In 2008, in The Guardian, we read:

"It was after the 2001 parliament attack that the first serious questions began to be raised. A campaign by a group of lawyers and activists exposed how innocent people had been framed by the police and the press, how evidence was fabricated, how witnesses lied, how due process had been criminally violated at every stage of the investigation."

Arundhati Roy: Mumbai .

A Pakistani lawyer C M Farooque has claimed that Ajmal Kasab was arrested in Nepal by the Indian security services before 2006.

Ajmal Kasab Was Kidnapped Before 2006 From Nepal By Indian ...

What was the purpose of the Mumbai attacks?

Here is a clue.

On 20 July 2009, India and the United States agreed a defence deal.

This is expected to boost US arms sales.

India also approved sites for two US nuclear reactors.

India, US agree on defence deal, nuclear reactor sites

Who is this?

The Indian authorities claim that they have in custody one of the Mumbai gunmen responsible for the November 2008 attacks.

This 21 year old 'gunman' is Mohammad Ajmal Amir Iman, also known as Kasav, Qasab, Kamal, Kasab, Qasab, Qasam, Kasab, Kasar, and Kamaal (

Ajmal Amir seems to be being used to disguise the false-flag nature of the Mumbai Attacks.

The reports about Ajmal Amir are contradictory and confusing.

1. One moment we are told he stayed for several days at the Taj Hotel; the next moment we are told he got straight off a boat and started a killing spree.

( Terrorists stayed in room 630, had many visitors)

2. There are reports that he had bullet wounds and reports that he did not have bullet wounds.
(No bullet hit Kasab, no active treatment on, says hospital's dean)

3. There are reports that one of his fellow gunmen was arrested at Cana Hospital and reports suggesting that nobody was arrested there.

(According to the BBC: "2120-2200: Gunmen raid the Cama and Albless Hospital ... One attacker is captured here." - (BBC NEWS South Asia Timeline: Mumbai under attack)

4. There are reports that Ajmal Amir speaks fluent English and reports that he is a rather illiterate and poorly educated criminal.

5. We are told that 8 gunmen were arrested and then we are told that only Ajmal Amir was arrested.

(“The Maharashtra Chief Minister Vilasrao Deshmukh told Associated Press that two British-born Pakistanis were among the eight gunmen arrested by Indian authorities.” - Four Mumbai terrorists ‘had links with Britain’)

6. We are told that the gunmen at the railway station and elsewhere were white men and yet Ajmal Amir is reportedly from Pakistan.

(BBC NEWS Mumbai attackers create 'killing zone' / Mumbai Attackers were 'Hindus' and 'White Men' )

7. We are told that the gunmen who shot Karkare spoke Marathi and then we are told that it was Ajmal Amir and his Pakistani friend who shot Karkare.

(The Marathi daily 'Maharashtra Times' said the terrorists who targeted Anti Terrorism Squad chief Hemant Karkare were speaking Marathi fluently. (i.e. they were not from Pakistan) Reportedly, traditional Jews from Mumbai, who have migrated to Israel, speak fluent Marathi and are known to have been recruited by Mossad.)

There is doubt, therefore, that Ajmal Amir did the shooting that he is supposed to have done.

At what point may Ajmal Amir have been recruited by people from some group, such as Lashkar-e Taiba, who work for the CIA or Mossad or RAW or ISI or MI6?

Lashkar-e Taiba (LeT) took part in the Bosnian War against Serbia. (

LeT is the Moslem group, operating in Jammu and Kashmir, that has been blamed for the Mumbai Attacks.

LeT reportedly has links to the Pakistan and UK intelligence services. (US and UK links to the terrorists in India and Pakistan)


Ajmal Amir is from a poor family in a poor village called Faridkot in Pakistan.

He went to school until age 13.

He left home after a fight with his father in 2005.

He then became involved in petty crime with his friend Muzaffar Lal Khan, soon moving on to armed robbery.

Reportedly, the security services like to employ criminals to do their dirty work.

In 2007, in Rawalpindi, Ajmal Amir and his friend decided to sign up for training with Lashkar-e-Taiba, ending up at their base camp, Markaz Taiba.

Initial reports suggested Ajmal Amir was fluent in English, and from a middle class background. (Father of gunman, Amir, 'paid by terrorists to hand him over')

Some sources said his father asked him to join Lashkar-e-Taiba so that he could use the money they gave him to run the family (Kasab says his father sent him to LeT )

Ajmal Amir is alleged to be among a group of 24 men who received training in marine warfare at a remote camp in mountainous Muzaffarabad in Pakistani-controlled Azad Kashmir. Part of the training is reported to have taken place on the Mangla Dam reservoir. (Rumours abound as inquiry begins its search for truth")

Zaki-ur-Rehman Lakhvi, a senior commander of the Lashkar-e-Taiba, reportedly offered to pay his family Rs.150,000 for his participation in the attacks. (Pakistan now holds the key to probe: investigators)

Another report said the 21-year old man was recruited from his Punjab, Pakistan home in part based on a pledge by recruiters to pay USD $1,250 US (Rs. 62,412.50) to his family when he became a martyr. Other sources put the reward to USD $4,000. (Bombs found in Mumbai train station a week later, National Public Radio, Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to 'Kill and Die' and Become Famous )

According to a media report citing an unnamed former Defence Department Official of the US, the intelligence agencies of the US had determined that the former officers from Pakistan’s Army and its powerful Inter-Services Intelligence agency assisted actively and continuously in training.

Reportedly Ajmal Amir said to his Indian captors: "We were told that our big brother India is so rich and we are dying of poverty and hunger. My father sells dahi wada on a stall in Lahore and we did not even get enough food to eat from his earnings. I was promised that once they knew that I was successful in my operation, they would give Rs 150,000 [almost USD 4,000] to my family)," said Qasab. (Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to Kill and Die and Become Famous, ABC News, 03-Dec-2008)

Reportedly Ajmal continued: "If you give me regular meals and money I will do the same for you that I did for them."

"When we asked whether he knew any verses from the Quran that described jihad, Ajmal Amir said he did not," police said. "In fact he did not know much about Islam or its tenets," according to a police source. (Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to Kill and Die and Become Famous, ABC News, 03-Dec-2008 )

"Please do not tell anyone that I am caught alive otherwise they will kill me. They had told us that they would shoot us if we ever returned to Pakistan", he said, according to the Asian Age, as quoted by ABC (USA). (Mumbai Terrorist Wanted to Kill and Die and Become Famous, ABC News, 03-Dec-2008 )

Reportedly, Ajmal Amir was captured on CCTV during his attacks at Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus along with another terrorist, Ismail Khan.

Ajmal Amir reportedly told the police that they wanted to replicate the attack on Islamabad's Marriott hotel attack, and reduce the Taj Hotel to rubble, replicating the 9/11 attacks in India. (PLANNED 9/11 AT TAJ: CAUGHT TERRORIST)


Ajmal Amir and his accomplice Abu Dera Ismail Khan, age 25, attacked the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus (Victoria Terminus) railway station.

They then moved on to attack a police vehicle at Cama Hospital, in which Maharashtra Anti Terrorism Squad Chief Hemant Karkare, was traveling.

Azam and Ismail Khan then drove towards Metro cinema and then towards Vidhan Bhavan.

Their vehicle had a tire puncture, so they stole a silver Škoda Laura and drove towards Girgaum Chowpatty. They met a police barricade on Marine Drive. Abu Ismail was killed and Ajmal Amir was captured.

Some reports said that Ajmal Amir was shot and had bullet wounds in his hand or both hands. (Sole Captured Suspect Offers Grim Insights Into Massacre )

There are other reports by doctors who treated him that he had no bullet wounds. (No bullet hit Kasab, no active treatment on, says hospital's dean)


Ajmal Amir disclosed the location of a fishing trawler, MV Kuber, that the gunmen reportedly used to enter Mumbai's coastal waters. He also told investigators where they would find the ship captain's body, a satellite phone and a global-positioning device. (Sole captured suspect offers grim insights into massacre, 2008)

It is reported that Ajmal Amir told the police that he and his associate, Ismail Khan, were the ones who shot Anti-Terror Squad chief Hemant Karkare, encounter specialist Vijay Salaskar and Additional Commissioner Ashok Kamte.

Reportedly, Ajmal Amir told the police he entered the Taj Hotel posing as a student from Mauritius and stored explosives in a room. (Arrested terrorist reveals all to police)

Ajmal Amir reportedly revealed that he and his associate stayed in Room 630 in the Taj Mahal Palace hotel and had many visitors. They had booked the room for four days using fake Mauritian identities. ( Terrorists stayed in room 630, had many visitors)

On November 29, Ajmal Amir named his colleagues as Abu Ali, Fahad, Omar, Shoaib, Umer, Abu Akasha, Abu Ismail Dera Ismail Khan, Abdul Rahman (Bara), and Abdul Rahman.

Reportedly Ajmal Amir has told his interrogators that their plan was to get off the dinghy near the fishing village at Badhwar Park, Cuffe Parade, at dusk and strike all targets except Nariman House between 19:00 and 20:00. However, the landing was delayed and they arrived at 20.45. (We wanted to hit CST at peak hour, says arrested terrorist)

On 24 July 2009, we learn from TEMPO Interactive about Ahmadi, 39, alias Ahmad Jenggot.

Ahmadi comes from Cilacap.

He is a chicken farmer and does not have a family certificate or ID card. This could suggest that he may be a poor, and poorly educated, villager.

Reportedly, Ahmadi has given himself up to the authorities and admitted that he had been prepared by Noordin Top for 'a suicide bombing.'

Ahmadi's friend Saefudin Zuhri was arrested before the recent hotel bombings; and he is also from Cilacap.

Zuhri reportedly fought in Afghanistan in the CIA's jihad operation. (Regular trips to Jakarta point to bomb suspect)

Bahrudin Latif is also from Cilacap.

He is the 'father-in-law' of Noordin Top.

Some weeks before the Jakarta hotel bombings, the police claimed they found two bombs wrapped in a blue plastic bag in the back yard of Bahrudin's house.

Many of the security staff in Jakarta are off-duty members of the military.

Reportedly, a Mr Aziz took a suitcase into the Marriott hotel.

(Inside information from flower seller who had run of five-star hotels)

The suitcase was not checked through an X-ray machine or subjected to any scrutiny.

All the Marriott's four vapour detectors, which are used to look for explosives, 'were out of order'.

The reception staff could not make a copy of his Indonesian identification card 'because the two photocopying machines at the front desk were unavailable.'

Could this be an inside-job?

Jemaah Islamiyah (JI) was blamed.

However, in February 2001, the respected Indonesian newsweekly Tempo published a cover story suggesting links between the bombings and the Indonesian military, the TNI.

The article pointed out that Edi Sugiarto, who was quickly arrested and confessed to assembling 15 of the bombs used in the town of Medan, has long run a car repair shop in the province of Aceh, where a separatist group named GAM has been fighting for many years.

Members of TNI and Indonesia’s special forces, Kopassus, regularly went to his shop for repairs and just to hang out.

As a result, GAM claimed he was a TNI lackey and burned down his shop and house in 1997.

Phone records also indicated that Sugiarto called Fauzi Hasbi seven times before the bombings.

Hasbi is a leader of JI, but Tempo outed him as an Indonesian government mole.

In 2005, two years after Hasbi’s death, the Australian television program SBS Dateline provided additional evidence of Hasbi’s long-time links to the TNI.

Fasbi also called Jacob Tanwijaya, a businessman well connected with the TNI, 35 times.

That businessman in turn talked on the phone to Lt. Col. Iwan Prilianto, a Kopassus special forces intelligence officer, over 70 times. (Source: Kopassus)

My nearest Moslem neighbour does not attend a mosque and his daughters wear mini skirts.

Are the USA and its allies in Afghanistan because certain Moslems are dangerous?

Are Moslems taking over Europe?

Newsweek, 11 July 2009, gives us some facts about Moslems.

Dispelling the Myth of Eurabia

1. Muslims, reportedly, make up about 5% of the population of Europe.

2. New controls will likely slow Muslim immigration.

3. The birthrate for Muslim immigrants is likely to continue to decline.

Reportedly, fertility rates among Turkish-born women in the Netherlands fell from 3.2 in 1990 to 1.9 in 2005.

Reportedly, fertility rates among Moroccan-born women in the Netherlands fell from 4.9 in 1990 to 2.9 in 2005.

4. Reportedly, there are no powerful Muslim political movements in Europe.

Divisions separate Sunnis and Shiites.

(Moroccans may disagree with Algerians. Bangladeshis may not be very fond of Pakistanis.)

5. According to a recent Gallup poll, more than 30% of French Muslims accept homosexuality.

Almost 50% of French Muslims believe sex between unmarried people is morally acceptable.

6. Polls show that Muslims overwhelmingly disapprove of terrorism.

7. A government survey shows that 40% of Iranians living in Germany say they have no religion.

In the Netherlands, only 27% of Muslims are regular attenders of mosques.

BUT, are Moslems involved in criminal activity?

1. Reportedly, the Syrian 'arms and drugs dealer' Monzer al- Kassar was a business associate of Lt Colonel Oliver North.

Al-Kassar was also 'closely aligned with Rifat Assad, brother of Syrian dictator Hafez Assad'.

Reportedly, in 1988, drugs from the Lebanon were being smuggled through Cyprus and Frankfurt into the United States, using Pan Am flights.

Reportedly, the CIA and Monzer al-Kassar were involved in this drugs smuggling.


An internal investigation by Pan Am is believed to have found that the bomb planted on Pan Am Flight 103 was put on the plane during a stop-over in Frankfurt, and not in Malta by the Libyan suspects, as alleged by the prosecution in the Lockerbie trial.

The Pan Am report is believed to have concluded that the bomb was not aimed at the killing of Americans in general, but was targeted specifically to kill a small band of DIA operatives that had uncovered a drugs ring run by a "rogue" CIA unit in Lebanon.

2. Former UK cabinet minister Michael Meacher wrote on 22 July 2004:

Omar Sheikh is... the man who, on the instructions of General Mahmoud Ahmed, the then head of Pakistan's Inter-Services Intelligence (ISI), wired $100,000 before the 9/11 attacks to Mohammed Atta, the lead hijacker.

It is extraordinary that neither Ahmed nor Sheikh have been charged and brought to trial on this count. Why not?

Ahmed, the paymaster for the hijackers, was actually in Washington on 9/11, and had a series of pre-9/11 top-level meetings in the White House, the Pentagon, the national security council, and with George Tenet, then head of the CIA, and Marc Grossman, the under-secretary of state for political affairs.

When Ahmed was exposed by the Wall Street Journal as having sent the money to the hijackers, he was forced to "retire" by President Pervez Musharraf. Why hasn't the US demanded that he be questioned and tried in court?,,1266317,00.html

3. Paul Joseph Watson wrote:

George W. Bush's father was meeting with Osama bin Laden's brother, Shafig bin Laden, in the Ritz-Carlton Hotel, Washington, on the morning of 9/11.

They were on Carlyle Group business just a few miles from where hijackers supposedly acting on behalf of Osama bin Laden would fly a plane into the Pentagon.

Recall that the chief financier of the so-called hijackers, Pakistan's Chief Spy General Mahmoud Ahmad, was meeting with Bush administration officials the week before 9/11. He also met with Bob Graham and Porter Goss on the morning of the attacks, who would later go on to head the first 9/11 investigative committee.,11913,738196,00.html

According to Professor John Metzger of Michigan State University:

"We should revisit the history of BCCI, a bank used by the legendary Palestinian terrorist known as Abu Nidal. BCCI was closely tied to American and Pakistan intelligence.

"Its clients included the Afghan rebels, and the brother of Osama bin Laden, Salem.

"Salem bin Laden named Houston investment broker James R. Bath as his business representative in Texas, right after George W. Bush's father became CIA director in 1976.

"By 1977, Bath invested $50,000 into junior's first business, Arbusto Energy, while Osama bin Laden would soon become a CIA asset.

"George W. Bush's FBI director Robert Mueller was part of the Justice Department's questionable investigation of BCCI. (On BCCI, the bin Ladens, and the Bushes, see the books, The Outlaw Bank, A Full Service Bank, and Fortunate Son)."

4. The July 29 edition of FOX News Channel's Day Side programme revealed that the so called mastermind of the 7/7 London Bombings, Haroon Rashid Aswat, is a British Intelligence Asset. Former Justice Dept. prosecutor and Terror expert John Loftus revealed that the so called Al-Muhajiroun group, based in London had formed during the Kosovo crisis, during which Fundamentalist Muslim Leaders (Or what is now referred to as Al Qaeda) were recruited by MI6 to fight in Kosovo.

Loftus stated that "...back in the late 1990s, the leaders all worked for British intelligence in Kosovo. Believe it or not, British intelligence actually hired some Al-Qaeda guys to help defend the Muslim rights in Albania and in Kosovo. That's when Al-Muhajiroun got started."

We have previously revealed how former MI5 officer David Shayler has alleged, and French intel sources have corroborated, that the MI6 paid a Libyan al-Qa'ida cell £100,000 in 1995 to assassinate colonel Qaddafi.

The military likes kids who have been abused.

Was George W Bush deprived of sufficient loving hugs and kisses as a child?

Would Hitler have been a more peaceful citizen if he had been given lots of affection by his dad?

Reportedly, the Pentagon likes children to have an abusive childhood.

Children who have had a tough upbringing are more likely to make tough soldiers.

The military-industrial complex does not like soldiers who are civilised human beings.

In the 1940s, Brigadier Gen. S.L.A. Marshall claimed that only 15-20% of America's World War II soldiers would use their weapons in battle.

Not enough soldiers were psychopaths. (On Killing, by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, p. 4 - The Canadian National Newspaper: Twilight of the Psychopaths )

It has been suggested that the media has long been used by the Pentagon in connection with the brainwashing of the public.

The Dark Knight appears to be a piece of brainwashing, perhaps designed to toughen up our youth in preparation for future wars.

The CIA reportedly tries to manufacture violent kids.

Lloyd deMause in The Journal of Psychohistory, Winter 1998, refers to The History of Child Abuse.

The History of Child Abuse Lloyd deMause - The Journal of Psychohistory

Lloyd deMause

Among the points made:

1. In past history we find child abuse was common.

In most countries children were sacrificed and mutilated to relieve the guilt of adults.

Today, we continue to arrange the daily killing, maiming, molestation and starvation of children.

2. Child abuse has been 'humanity’s most powerful and most successful ritual'.

Child abuse creates disturbed people.

It has been the cause of war and social violence.

3. A good mother will calm a crying of a baby.

An immature mother, one who feels unloved, will hit a crying baby.

4. What do we know of child care in other cultures?

Among the Bimin-Kuskusmin of New Guinea, mothers "sleep naked against their children until they are about four years old, have orgasms while nursing them and regularly masturbate them."

Pederasty by men is "quite common in pre-literate groups" and was "common in earlier historical times".

Incest "has been universal for most children in most cultures in most times".

"A childhood more or less free from adult sexual use is in fact a very late historical achievement."

USA during the Depression

5. In America, scientific studies report that 30 % of men and 40 % of women remember having been 'sexually molested' during childhood.

"About half of these are directly incestuous, with the family members, the other half usually being with others, but with the complicity of caretakers in at least 80 percent of the cases."

81 % of these 'seductions' occur before puberty and 42 % under age 7.

"Latin American family sexual activity - particularly widespread pederasty as part of macho sexuality - is considered even more widespread."

In Germany, "the Institut fur Kindheit has recently concluded a survey asking West Berlin schoolchildren about their sexual experiences, and 80 percent reported having been molested."

Hermit monk performing auparashtika on a princely visitor. Temple of Chhapri, Central India, 12th century CE.

"Childhood in India begins, according to observers, with the child being regularly masturbated by the mother, the girl 'to make her sleep well,' the boy 'to make him manly.'"

"The child is often 'borrowed' to sleep with other members of the extended household, leading to the Indian proverb that 'For a girl to be a virgin at ten years old, she must have neither brothers nor cousin nor father.'

Child marriage is a long-standing Indian practice.

"The Indian subcontinent, in fact, still has many groups, such as the Baiga, where actual incestuous marriage is practiced, between fathers and daughters, between mothers and sons, between siblings and even between grandparents and their grandchildren."

In China, historically, we find the pederasty of boys, child concubinage, the castration of boys to be used sexually as eunuchs, marriage of young girls to a number of brothers, widespread boy and girl prostitution and the regular sexual use of child servants and slaves.

In contemporary Japan, we find masturbation by mothers 'to put them to sleep.'

'Parents often have intercourse with their children'.

Sleeping with parents 'often continues until the child is ten or fifteen'.

One Japanese study 'found daughters sleeping with their fathers over 20 percent of the time after age 16'.

Lehnert and Landrock

In the Near East, we find 'child marriage, child concubinage, temple prostitution of both boys and girls, parent-child marriage (among the Zoroastrians), sibling marriage (quite common among Egyptians), sex slavery, ritualized pederasty and child prostitution'.

'Mutual masturbation, fellatio and anal intercourse are also said to be common among children, particularly with the older boys using younger children as sex objects'.

'One report found 80 % of Near Eastern women surveyed recalled having been forced into fellatio between the ages of 3 and 6 by older brothers, cousins, uncles and teachers.'

'Arab women know that their spouses are pedophiles and prefer having sex with children to having sex with them.'

'A recent survey of Egyptian girls and women showed 97 percent of uneducated families and 66 percent of educated families still practiced clitoridectomy.'

Lehnert and Landrock

6. "Most early states practiced child sacrifice."

"Typical was Carthage ... The sacrifice was accompanied by a music, wild dancing and riotous orgy..."

"Sacrifice, rape and genital mutilation of young girls continues to take place today in the Andean mountains..."

"These ceremonies, from antiquity to today, resemble closely ... satanic rituals..."

Children’s bodies were particularly useful in curing disease.

"As late as the end of the nineteenth century, men who were brought into Old Bailey for having raped young girls were let go because 'they believed that they were curing themselves of venereal disease.'

7. "The evolution of childhood from incest to love and from abuse to empathy has been a slow, uneven path, but one whose progressive direction is, I think, unmistakable."

"If the parent - the mother, for most of history - is given even the most minimal support by society, the evolution of childhood progresses...

"If little girls are treated particularly badly, they grow up to be mothers who cannot rework their traumas, and history is frozen...

"It is only when changes in childhood occur that ... changes in the brain can occur and societies can begin to progress and move in unpredictable new directions that are more adaptive..."

World War II

8. There are six childrearing modes that I have suggested are common to all groups...

1. The earliest childrearing mode I have called infanticidal.

"I have estimated that perhaps half of all children born in antiquity were killed by their caretakers, declining to about a third in medieval times and dropping to under one percent only by the eighteenth century."

"In most simple societies today in such areas as New Guinea, boys and girls are used sexually by both their mothers and by the men, who gang rape girls and often are also pederasts who use the boys sexually, have boy-wives, or force all the boys to fellate them daily from age seven to fourteen..."

"The Greek and Roman child lived his or her earliest years in an atmosphere of sexual abuse...

"Boys ... were regularly handed over by their parents to neighboring men to be raped...

"Child brothels, rent-a-boy services and sex slavery flourished in every city in antiquity...

"Christianity constructed its central myth of the Father sending his son down to be penetrated by a soldier’s lance in order to restage the common experience of fathers giving their boys to a neighbor to be sexually penetrated.

"Those who accepted the myth, accepted the penetration, and were promised the Father’s love and Mary’s tears in return."

2. "I labeled the second stage the abandoning mode..."

"Through the nineteenth century over half of the children born in Florence, for instance, were dumped into foundling homes at birth, to be picked up by their families - if they lived that long (the majority died) - when they were around five years old, thus avoiding having homes where crying babies disturbed the peace.

"The same abandonment was common in France, where, in 1900, over 90 % of the babies born in Paris were carted out to the countryside to wetnurses at birth. As one author put it, 'mother love' was a late historical achievement, not an instinctual trait...

"The erotic beating of children continued in Christian times...

"Century after century of battered children grew up to batter their own children in turn.

3. By the thirteenth century in the West ... some advanced parents began to practice what I have termed the ambivalent mode of childrearing, where the child was not born completely evil... The mother might herself nurse her infant.

The fifteenth and sixteenth centuries in Western Europe saw vastly improved childrearing.

This "allowed at least some of the schizoid and borderline personalities of antiquity and medieval times - who regularly heard voices and hallucinated visions - to move on to the more integrated, less splitting modern neurotic personality more familiar to recent times...

"The sixteenth-century watershed in childrearing allowed people to reduce splitting and feel real depression for the first time, as can be seen in ... the ability of Protestants to end the good mother/bad mother splitting of Mary/Eve, and the ability to internalize the projective panoply of split Catholic saints/devils into Protestant depressive guilt.

"With this vast improvement in childrearing - in some families at least - the modern world could begin, with the development of science, technology and democratization now being possible in parts of the West."

4. "By the seventeenth century, the intrusive mode of childrearing began, particularly in England, America and France, whereby the child was seen as less full of dangerous projections...

"Intrusive parenting, in essence, began to substitute psychological pressure for physical abuse, so that rather than whipping the child to prevent it from sin, it was, for instance, shut up in the dark closets for hours or left without food, sometimes for days.

"One mother shut her three-year-old boy up in a drawer.

"The intrusive mode required ... a steady pressure on the child to “break its will”...

"John Wesley’s mother said of her babies, “When turned a year old (and some before), they were taught to fear the rod, and to cry softly.”

"A mother wrote of her first battle with her four-month-old infant, “I whipped him til he was actually black and blue, and until I could not whip him any more, and he never gave up one single inch.”

"Religion was a further source of terrorizing. God was said to “hold you over the pit of hell, much as one holds a spider, or some loathsome insect, over the fire”..."

5. "By the nineteenth century’s ... more gentle psychological means began to be used to “socialize” the child.

"The socializing mode is still the main model of upbringing in Western nations, featuring the mother as trainer and the father as provider and protector, and the child is seen as slowly being made to conform to the parents’ model of goodness.

"By the nineteenth century parents ... still sent their children to schools where they were erotically whipped on the bare buttocks and usually buggered by the older boys and masters.

As John Addington Symonds reported his experience as a boy at public school:

"Every boy of good looks had a female name, and was recognized either as a public prostitute or as some bigger fellow’s ‘bitch.’ ... Here and there one could not avoid seeing acts of onanism, mutual masturbation, or the sports of naked boys in bed together...

"Those who tried to pass child labor legislation to reduce horrendous working conditions and hours were labeled Communists...

"Even so, the decrease in parental seduction and beating during the intrusive mode produced an explosion of social innovation, allowing nations to produce the democratic and industrial revolutions of the modern period."

6. "What kind of society might be envisioned by children brought up under the latest childrearing mode - what I have termed the helping mode - whereby a minority of parents are now trying to help their children reach their own goals at each stage of life, rather than socializing them into adult goals - is yet to be seen...

"That helping mode children grow up to be incapable of creating wars is also becoming evident from watching the anti-war activities of my children and those of their friends who have been brought up by other helping mode parents.

"For war is only understandable as a sacrificial ritual in which young men are sent by their parents to be hurt and killed as representatives of the independence-seeking parts of themselves.

"Psychohistorians have regularly found that images on the magazine covers and in political cartoons in the months prior to wars reveal fears of the nation becoming “too soft” and vulnerable, with images of dangerous women threatening to engulf and hurt people...

9. "That all social violence - whether by war, revolution or economic exploitation - is ultimately a consequence of child abuse should not surprise us.

"The propensity to reinflict childhood traumas upon others in socially-approved violence is actually far more able to explain and predict the actual outbreak of wars than the usual economic motivations, and we are likely to continue to undergo our periodic sacrificial rituals of war if the infliction of childhood trauma continues.

"Clear evidence has been published in The Journal of Psychohistory that the more traumatic one’s childhood, the more one is likely to be in favor of military solutions to social problems..."

10. "We cannot be content to only continue to do endless repair work on damaged adults, with more jails and police and therapists and political movements.

"Our task now must be to create an entirely new profession of “child helpers” who can reach out to every new child born on earth and help its parents give it love and independence...

" The success of parenting centers such as the one pioneered in Boulder, Colorado, for instance, has been astonishing.

"Through parenting classes and home visiting by paraprofessionals, they have measurably reduced child abuse, as shown by careful followup studies and by reduced police reports and hospital entrance rates.

"All this has been accomplished with very small monetary outlays, since these parent outreach centers operate mainly with volunteer labor, while it has the potential to save trillions of dollars annually in the costs of social violence, police enforcement, jails and other consequences of the widespread child abuse of today.

"Such a parent support movement would resemble the universal education movement of over a century ago...

"Do we really want to have massive armies and jails and emotionally crippled adults forever?

"Must each generation continue to torture and neglect its children so they repeat the violence and economic exploitation of previous generations?

"Why not achieve meaningful political and social revolution by first achieving a parenting revolution?

"If war, social violence, class domination and economic destruction of wealth are really revenge rituals for childhood trauma, how else can we remove the source of these rituals? How else end child abuse and neglect? How else increase the real wealth of nations, our next generation? How else achieve a world of love and laughter of which we are truly capable?"
