In 1992, at an old chateau a few kilometres outside Paris, a small group gathered to form yet another organization trying to stop our destruction of the world.
There was only one difference: this group wanted to highlight the root cause of the problems.
That Association is still going strong, and its core purpose has never been more necessary.
Today on Thinking with Somebody Else's Head, I'd like to introduce you to the STOP the Destruction of the World Association - a non-profit agency closely linked to Norberto Keppe's science of Analytical Trilogy.
I haven't mentioned it for a couple of weeks, but I still have copies of Norberto Keppe's seminal book on the pathology of power - Liberation of the People - available for free. I've given away quite a few of these provocative books already, and it's wonderful to see Keppe's very important work getting out to more people.
Keppe publishes these books himself since no publisher will touch him with a barge-pole - more shame to them - which gives you an idea how important his work must be. When he lived in New York City in the '80s, a friend of mine who worked for one of the big networks at the time said a memo circulated around the radio and TV stations saying that no one was to give any air time to Keppe's books or activities - which were substantial - and that no effort should be expended in covering anything to do with his work.
You see, Keppe challenges the power structures at their roots. He doesn't just offer social critique, but unmasks the pathology behind all human actions - especially the pathology driving those in power. Just write me for your copy of this landmark book, firstname.lastname@example.org
Claudia Pacheco has worked closely with Keppe for over 25 years. She is the vice-president of his International Society of Analytical Trilogy, a much in demand psychoanalyst, and the president of the STOP the Destruction of the World Association. I sat down with her recently to talk about the problems in society and how her association could possibly help a world seemingly hell-bent on destruction.
