I grew-up & lived in the time/years, where discrimination against Aboriginals was still done, enforced and believed to be legal — post ‘67 referendum — yes, I witnessed, experienced how my darker coloured relatives & friends in community were treated and disrespected by “good” Australians, business owners & “their” police, so I relate well and respect the courage & inner fortitude, spirit, of such as this young woman in a country across the sea … why should “we” so readily and easily “forget about it, get over it, move on…”? My relatives, friends and the 1000s of Aboriginals affected and abused, throughout Australia, were not the perpetrators of such wrongs & cruel, often callous injustices enforced by laws of the corrupted ones.
Not Just Physical Violence
Someone doesn’t have to hit you, choke you or slam your head into a wall in order for it to be violence. They can degrade you, humiliate you, blame you, scream at you, lie to you, cheat-on or betray you. Withhold or control your finances, or even just try to control your movements and who you see and socialise with.
For me, this could be describing many of “our” doolyas [police], politician, bureaucrats, current health services, and many other “people” who are in positions of self-importance, power and legally protected “privilege” or profession.
Being “violated” is often described as a feeling of disempowerment — feeling powerless or worthless — a form of “violence” against a person’s spiritual, energetic, and/or mental self-worth & psyche-o-logical safety and well-being.
These are some of the methods and ways known or experienced as domestic, family or relational violence.
In the English language, especially in psychology and sociological usage, more so these days such “people” who commit and/or display such acts of violence, abuse (of power/position) upon another’s “personal sovereignty” are known as narcissists, sociopaths, or psychopaths. They are always perpetrators (predators) amongst the living, needing to feed off another, needing to fulfil themselves by means of of the life-force and/or lives of their victims.
“The State” Maintains Right to Violence
Violence is built-in to the “civilised” system of government. Eradicating violence against people, be it family, friends, spouse, or strangers will never happen as long as the system of laws remains the same. Change the law-makers, change the laws, take-away the “systems” right to use violence. Simple as that.
The Mátchi Syndrome
The mátchi syndrome, derived from a term found in the Native Americans languages of the Powhatan, Delaware, Massachusett, Ojibwe, and Cree.
Mátchi means evil or bad, and is used in various forms to refer to evilness of the mind, evil speech, evil acts, and so on.
Mothers do not give birth to “devilish” [evil] babies, but rather it is the mátchi heritage and wétiko disease that snatch children from their innocence and too often turns them into fear-full humans, and/or inter-generational perpetrators, predators, victims.
This mátchi syndrome has had dramatic and traumatic consequences on the modern world. The desire of ‘white’ (non-indigenous or new) settlers to “subdue” nature (as well as the indigenous people) in the Americas, Africa, Australia, New Zealand, and so on, cannot be separated from their view of cities, buildings, and human-created things (machines, for example) as being part of “God’s world”, while the wilderness (nature in all of its beauty and splendour) is untamed and has to be overcome, managed, controlled or destroyed.
[Traumatising &/or abusing vulnerable/sensitive children, by constant/impressive exposure to violent/abusive environment/behaviours, and/or experiencing direct and impactful offence/attack is one of the most effective means for infecting and spreading this psycho-spiritual virus/infection.]
Wétiko aka wihtikow: Noun(uncountable) Origin; From Cree wihtikow (“greedy person; cannibal; giant man-eating monster”
“This disease, this wetiko (cannibal) psychosis, is the greatest epidemic sickness known to man.” We, as a species, are in the midst of a massive psychic epidemic, a virulent collective psychosis that has been brewing in the cauldron of humanity’s psyche from the beginning of time.
Like a fractal, wetiko operates on multiple dimensions simultaneously — intra-personally (within individuals), inter-personally (between ourselves), as well as collectively (as a species). “Cannibalism,” in Jack D. Forbes’s words, “is the consuming of another’s life for one’s own private purpose or profit.”
Those afflicted with wetiko, like a cannibal, consume the life-force of others — human and nonhuman — for private purpose or profit, and do so without giving back something from their own lives.”

Endemic and Insidious Deep Within
When it comes to human-sex-child trafficking… next level of deviancy and conspiracy? “Snuff” movies! Who can afford to pay for these!? Umm, only the very rich with the collusion of “key” people & their “enablers”. Seriously folks, just ask the right questions, & stop believing in your “leaders”, your “legal” system, it’s enforcers. The corruption is endemic and insidious deep within the “modern” culture itself.
