Diversity and its threads is not a walk in a pastoral park. Diversity and its Literacy requires leaning into the discomfort of addressing insidious and painful social pathologies. Truth Serum provides lenses by which to identify specimens of socially engendered -isms, phobias and the social agencies that teach such constructs.
Truth Serum examines the ideology of oppression and its trauma.
Oppression is man-made, constructed, marketed and brought to fruition with cataclysmic results. The numbers of human beings suffering needless trauma, cultural ruptures, obliterated identities and the loss of innocent lives is overwhelming.
As painful as it may be at times, our humanity requires for each of us to affirm our dedication that oppression will not be left unexamined on behalf of every born child and those yet to be.
Truth Serum makes available critical lenses exposing past and present oppression, countering falsehoods, providing antidotes by which to resist the contamination of -isms and phobias.
The Truth is the Truth ~ All Else Is an Option ~ History Tells Us So
Why has it been so hard for human beings historically to admit the TRUTH?
Is it our social-cultural-political-religious ego, our propensity to believe that “right is right and we are always right?”
Is it that the TRUTH reflects and reveals our constructed flawed identities?
Seriously, what is it about us that draws us to deviate from veracity with options, even when the TRUTH is staring back?
“How do I love or hate you? ~ Let me count the ways” Why the Reluctance to Condemn Extremism and Gun Violence? ~ Gen Zers no longer waiting for Stuck on Stuck Generations
“How do I love thee . . . let me count the ways . . . ”
Elizabeth Barrett Browning 1806-1861
“How do I hate thee . . . let us count the ways . . . ”

One letters with pen in hand – the other with a gun.
Each is a choice – both taught and learned.
Gen Zers unapologetically answering the call.
The Children of Victimizers ~ The Invisible Legacy of Multigenerational Trauma
The trauma produced by inhuman victimization does not stop with the victims. The multigenerational trauma lingers on many levels and layers.
The threads remain connected between the victims, the victimizers and their children.
Dr. Yael Danieli (clinical psychologist, traumatologist and victimologist) does not exclude the psychological trauma inherited by the children of victimizers.
That is, the needless trauma that Domestic Terrorists, White Supremacists, Insurrectionists and Hate Groups inflict on their children.
The trauma sowed unto others is reaped by the innocent.
