On February 24th, 2018, Stefan Molyneux appeared at ‘A Night For Freedom’ in Washington, DC to discuss the magnitude of the decisions we each make every single day and the far reaching impact those choices can have on a long enough timeline. For the purpose of illustration, Stefan Molyneux looks at Sigmund Freud’s cowardice when met with opposition and how he sold out sexually abused children with disastrous long term consequences.
A short summary of the narrative:
Throughout history, insanity was usually explained by demon possession, ghosts, sin, temptation and so on. In the 19th century, with a more secular view, Freud was seeing female patients suffering from hysteria (today: hysterical neurosis, conversion type). He found that ALL of them were victims of sexual abuse in childhood. Having been involved in autopsies of bodies of children that had bean raped to death, he was well aware that pedo-sexual crime was going on in society. Freud was excited because he was convinced he had found the cause of hysteria, perhaps mental illness per se. He had discovered one of the great riddles of the ages, a revelation about disfunction in society.
He quickly found that almost all of his colleagues in the Viennese society were opposed to or attacked him for his course of investigation. Virtually everyone turned on him and tried to ruin his career. There is strong biographical evidence that his best friend of 15 years who helped him developing this theory was himself a pedophile. Freud could not undo the awareness of the connection, many other doctors and philosophers had picked up on it. So, in (1899) he resorted to Greek mythology and created the theory of “The Oedipus complex”.
The theory suggests that children’s accounts of sexual abuse by their parents were only phantasies rooted in an unconscious desire for the opposite sex parent. Thus, he turned the victims into perpetrators, who falsely (although unconsciously) accused adults of sexual abuse. Freud had betrayed the innocent victims for many generations. This constituted a switch in morality in society with enormous implications.
Today, It is known that most – in some cities all -female drug addicts have experianced sexual abuse as a child. In the last 20 years or so, the problem of widespread pedophelia in society and institutions /governments has again come to surface; the UN and other aid organizations (Haiti), the catholic church, government schools, high ranking politicians, and so on.
The effects of child sexual abuse can be long-lasting and affect the victim’s mental health. Victims are more likely than non-victims to experience the following mental health challenges:
- About 4 times more likely to develop symptoms of drug abuse
- About 4 times more likely to experience PTSD as adults
- About 3 times more likely to experience a major depressive episode as adults
Had the issue of child abuse been properly addressed in the early 1900s, it might have changed the course of history radically, including the possible evasion of two world wars and totalitarian collectivist regimes that killed hundreds of millions. See the video for Molyneux’s complete derivation of this compelling argument.
“The Oedipus complex is a concept of psychoanalytic theory. Sigmund Freud introduced the concept in his Interpretation of Dreams (1899). It refers to a child’s unconscious desire for the opposite-sex parent, thought as a necessary stage of psychosexual development. Freud considered that the child’s identification with the same-sex parent is the successful resolution of the complex and that unsuccessful resolution of the complex might lead to neurosis, pedophilia, and homosexuality.”
“Hysteria, in the colloquial use of the term, means ungovernable emotional excess. Generally, modern medical professionals have abandoned using the term “hysteria” to denote a diagnostic category, replacing it with more precisely defined categories, such as somatization disorder. In 1980, the American Psychiatric Association officially changed the diagnosis of “hysterical neurosis, conversion type” (the most extreme and effective type) to “conversion disorder“.”
While the word “hysteria” originates from the Greek word for uterus, hystera, the word itself is not an ancient one, and the term “hysterical suffocation” – meaning a feeling of heat and inability to breathe – was instead used in ancient Greek medicine. This suggests an entirely physical cause for the symptoms but, by linking them to the uterus, suggests that the disorder can only be found in women. Historically, hysteria was thought to manifest itself in women with a variety of symptoms, including: anxiety, shortness of breath, fainting, insomnia, irritability, nervousness, as well as sexually forward behaviour.

I suggest that we stop using the word ‘debt’ as we have been using it, for by the subversion of words, we are subverted! We must be prepared for a new monetary system, an honest one, when our present debt-based banking cartel collapses. Kindly read and critique this proposed Constitutional Amendment. But first, a little background…
From “The Truth in Money Book” by Theodore R. Thorsen and Richard F Warner:
QUOTE Someone had to borrow at usury to bring that money [checkbook balances, bills and coins] into existence. The money goes out of existence as the usury and the debt principal are paid back to the bank. These amounts are huge: several billion dollars go out of existence each day. [Actually this money goes into the reserve accounts of the Federal Reserve Banks, out of the hands of the public! This book was first printed in November 1980. The amounts which are withdrawn presently are much larger.] If the money is not replaced with new loans, a shortage occurs. Soon individuals and businesses experience serious cash flow problems. These result in more and more loan applications to banks—the only place where money is being created to replenish the supply” UNQUOTE
Here is one possible solution—-To Hell with Fractional-Reserve Debt-Based Banking Constitutional Amendment
(1) Rescind the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and rename existing Federal Reserve notes and check book balances, in all U.S. banking and credit-creating institutions as well as foreign holdings of dollars, on a 1-to-1 basis, as U.S. Treasury Dollars and U.S.Treasury-Denominated bank balances. All currently existing financial contracts of the Federal Reserve Banking System, including United States Treasury Bills, Notes, Bonds, and Inflation-Protected Securities, remain in effect.
(2) Henceforward, ex nihilo credit creation by banking and financial institutions in the United States is prohibited. Loans are required to originate from previous savings of U.S. Treasury Dollars and U.S. Treasury-Denominated bank balances, which for each loan are held in and paid from specific sequestered loan accounts by the various financial institutions, with interest charges and term limits for each loan to be determined solely by the contracting parties. Non-cash reserves held in the regional Federal Reserve Banks in accounts of the member institutions of the Federal Reserve System no longer form the basis for credit creation and are extinguished via accounting erasure. Any further payments of principal and interest on currently-existing promissory notes owned by any bank are required to be distributed to holders of savings accounts and checking accounts in that bank in a manner to be determined by each bank, such procedures to be transparent to savings or checking account holders at that bank in terms of amount and frequency of payment. Regional Federal Reserve Banks continue to provide check-clearing operations for the member banks.
(3) Monetary transactions of the regional Federal Reserve banks or of its member banks with international banks, including the Bank of International Settlements and the International Monetary Fund, can not include ex nihilo credit creation.
(4) The U.S. Treasury supplies Treasury Dollars as needed to any member bank of the Federal Reserve system to satisfy demands for cash by deposit and savings account holders in excess of cash reserves held by banks at the time of enactment of this amendment.
(5) Fund the U.S. government and its agencies and projects directly via Treasury Dollars authorized by the Congress in its yearly federal budget. The borrowing of money from the Federal Reserve system of banks or from other institutions or individuals to pay for federal government expenditures is prohibited. All outstanding Treasury Securities are henceforward redeemed on demand via payment with U.S. Treasury Dollars.
(6) Abolish the Federal Income Tax on individuals, corporations, and business enterprises while maintaining a social security tax on individual incomes. Social security retirement revenues are strictly sequestered in Federal Government Retirement Accounts held by the U.S. Treasury and managed by the Social Security Administration. The Sixteenth Amendment to the U.S. Constitution is hereby rescinded and the Internal Revenue Service disbanded.
(7) Institute a federal sales tax with a varying yearly tax rate adjusted by the U.S. Congress in session, the sole aim of such adjustments being to maintain a stable or decreasing Consumer Price Index based on data collected by the Federal Government. Any such federal sales taxes taken in by the Federal Government are extinguished from the currency supply to keep the Consumer Price Index stable or decreasing and are not utilized for further funding.
(8) Clause 1, Article 1, Section 8 of the U.S. Constitution is amended to read as follows: The Congress shall have Power to collect customs duties on imports and exports, uniformly applied throughout the United States.
(9) Clause 2, Article 1, Section 8 of the U. S. Constitution is rescinded.
(10) The adoption of this amendment does not prohibit the use by the citizens of the United States of any alternative currencies they should choose to use in their private or commercial transactions.
