Freud and repression
Tuesday April 22, 2008
In your work, you suggest that Freud is responsible for decades of justifying blaming the child.
However, those that chose to adopt Freud’s Oedipus/Electra Complex instead of his Seduction Theory, are just as blameworthy. They hailed Oedipus as truth, and promoted it, they wanted it to be true, therefore they wanted to blame the child.
AM: They blame the child because they were blamed and learned to justify this behavior when they where children under 3 years old and their brain was structuring. Freud’s theories confirm what they believe by denying the cruelty of most childhoods. Read the profile of Alice Miller on the entry to this website.
