Below is an extract from the kind of emails I get, where people go to great lengths to:
- Let me know I am a nutcase
- Justify everything that Kenneth (Jed) does
To the first point my answer is… I do not care for any opinions that humans may have. Being called crazy is the best compliment one can get in this world of insane people.
To the second point… Insane people. They will find an excuse for ANYTHING to defend the status quo, and there IS a status quo in gurudom relationships. If anyone remembers I mentioned that I am Russian by origin. My mother once told me that when Stalin, the man on whose orders 30 or so million people perished, died in 1953 people CRIED. They cried despite knowing the facts, the nightly disappearance of someone in almost every household, the devastating effects of the war, the decimation of the talent pool, the famine.. They said ‘It wasn’t his fault.’ They looked for others to place the blame on for the extreme cruelty and total lack of Humanity of one man.
Jed is not Stalin. He is, in fact, quite the opposite by nature, and I will write about it in my next two articles. But he leaves humans in exactly the same state: inability for critical thinking. With a state of ‘do not care’, which ultimately protects HIM from any honest inquiry. None of his ‘students’ as I far as I can see are in any way clearer as to what the hell this life is all about. But they know spiritual language really well and play the newly found ‘spiritual’ roles. Well, let me tell you… I AM NOT ENLIGHTENED. To talk about this as something real – makes me chuckle inside.
I have never been Jed’s student. I was someone who interacted with him with a view of understanding the human behind the Mask, and I stated that on the forum many a time.
“I’m sure Jed likes sex as much as anyone. But the only accusation I see on your website so far is that Jed is paying women to not only have sex with him but to actually enjoy their time with him.
No doubt sex workers are exploited and in poor conditions, all the more so in Cambodia. Jed can’t rescue anyone or change their situation. But what he can do is give them money and show them a good time. I’m not so naive as to call it altruistic and I don’t think of him that way (and I don’t see altruism as altruism anyway), but it’s not half bad for a human. Unless you have a personal hangup about the Reality of sex or prostitution”.
‘He can give them money and show them a good time.” And it is not half bad. Right.. perhaps, it is only one-third bad.. or ten percent? Does a twenty year old get a kick out of an intimate deal with a seventy year old, a man the age of her grandfather, as is often the case here?
I have no hangups about sex. Sex is a FREE activity. Instead, it has been reduced to being a bargaining tool for girls and a point of anxiety for men. Here in South East Asia it has become the fucking industry of abuse. Children are drafted into it. Young women are drafted into it. Ladyboys are drafted into it.
Just because ‘everyone does it’- it don’t make it right.
