SAPA & SA Media: Appeal of CRL Rights Comm: Mrs. Makgoba 07 February ruling. Request Confirmation CRL Rights Commission Chairperson: Mr. Mabuza endorses Mrs. K. Makgoba’s Ruling authorizing (a) the CRL Rights Commission’s and SA Legal establishment’s endorsement of the denial of cultural legal representation, and access to courts, to members of the Radical Honesty culture, and (b) the South African Media’s discrimination against Members of the Radical Honesty culture, by refusing to report the fact that a South African citizen member of the Radical Honesty culture, has been unable to find a lawyer to represent her, as a member of the Radical Honesty culture, for the past ten years, and in a current case before the Constitutional Court. FACTS NOT IN DISPUTE: [1] The South African Constitution is founded on the premise that South Africa is a multicultural country, hence neither common law, nor cultural customary law are prima facie applicable in any dispute before any court. The Constitution provides for all citizens rights to invoke1 cultural law2 in S. 15(3)3, 304, 315, and 186. When

Ex parte Minister of Native Affairs: In re Yako v Beyi 1948 (1) SA 388 (A) at 397: Appellate Division held that neither common nor customary law was prima facie applicable. Courts had to consider all 1


any party invokes cultural law, the court is required to proceed in terms of application of choice of law rules, to determine the applicability of one or other legal system, or combination thereof, on the basis of its inquiry into the relevant parties particular cultures, as determined from their lifestyles7. [2] For example: In Smit NO and Others v King Goodwill Zwelithini Kabhekuzulu and Others8 Judge Nic van Reyden of the Kwa-Zulu Natal High Court, ruled in favour of the revived Zulu cultural practice of barehanded killing of a bull at the Ukweshwama festival, satisfied with the evidence of cultural expert Professor Jabulani Mapalala9, who said that the animal‟s death was quick, unpainful and that no blood was shed. (Others disagreed10: Mapalala‟s expert witness testimony contradicts Chief Mlaba (not submitted to the court), as quoted in an ANC newsletter of December 1995, that: “We must use our bare hands, It‟s cruelty, we agree, but it‟s our culture. We cannot change our culture.”11).

the circumstances of a case, and, without any preconceived view about the applicability of one or other legal system, select the appropriate law on the basis of its inquiry. 2 SALC, Sept 1999: Report on Conflicts of law: P.22: „1.58. The Constitution now provides an entitlement for invoking customary law in legal suits. Because ss 30 and 31 specifically guarantee an individual and a group's right to pursue a culture of choice, it could be argued that application of customary law has become a constitutional right. Previously, the state had assumed complete discretion in deciding whether and to what extent customary law should be recognized, an attitude typical of colonial thinking, for Africans were subject to whatever policies the conquering state chose to impose on them. Now, however, the state has a duty to allow people to participate in the culture they choose, implicit in this duty is a responsibility to uphold the institutions on which that culture is based.‟ 3 Freedom of Religion, Belief and Opinion http://www.info.gov.za/documents/constitution/1996/96cons2.htm#15 4 Language and Culture http://www.info.gov.za/documents/constitution/1996/96cons2.htm#30 5 Culture, Religious & Linguistic Comm: http://www.info.gov.za/documents/constitution/1996/96cons2.htm#31 6 Freedom of Association http://www.info.gov.za/documents/constitution/1996/96cons2.htm#18 7 In Ex Parte Minister of Native Affairs in re: Yako v Beyi 1948 (1) SA 388 (A) Schreiner J.A. said lifestyle of is a choice of law factor. “Aside from an express choice of laws all connecting factors with conflict of personal laws are designed to determine, in an objective manner, the cultural orientation of the parties. Because the laws involved are conceived in terms of culture .... the connecting factors must be conceived in like terms. The most direct access to a person‟s cultural leanings would clearly be his or her lifestyle.” 8 Smit NO and Others v King Goodwill Zwelithini Kabhekuzulu and Others (10237/2009) [2009] ZAKZPHC 75 (4 Dec 2009) 9 Mkhize: Bull-killing ruling promotes cultural tolerance, M&G, 04 Dec 2009; Court Clears Ritual, Bare Handed Killing of a Bull – Does the Judgement Threaten Wider Environmental Problems?, Dave Harcourt, Eco-Localizer, 6 Dec 2009; S.A.

[4.7]

As stated in my complaint to the CRL Rights Commission (Annex B):

A.

I am unable to get access to a court, because I don‟t have a lawyer. I don‟t have a lawyer, because no lawyer in South Africa, that I am aware of, is willing to represent an individual from the Radical Honesty culture; yet the media deny me access to the publicity to find such a possible lawyer; or at least to unequivocally confirm that such a lawyer does not exist.

B.

Media editors hate the Radical Honesty culture, because we practice 100% transparency (so they are unable to threaten or frighten us with exposing any of our secrets, cause we ain't got no secrets) and because we don't practice “Public Relations”. The media don‟t believe it is their professional job to report on all cultures and all news with impartiality and fairness.

CHRONOLOGY OF EVENTS: Registrar in Afriforum v. Malema et al: Constitutional Court Review Application: Alien on Pale Blue Dot v. Afriforum et al, Refuses my Review Application, based upon the fact that I do not have Legal Representation. On 27 November 2012, I filed a Pro Se application17 for Review of the Supreme Court of Appeal „Kill Boere Hate Speech‟ Mediation Agreement entered into by and between: ANC, Mr. Malema, Afriforum and TAU-SA. The Respondents are: Afriforum, Transvaal Agricultural Union, Julius Malema, African National Congress, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Former Presidents Nelson Mandela and FW de Klerk, CRL Rights Commission, Norwegian Nobel Committee: Chair, Central Intelligence Agency: Director, and David Petraeus. 1: Agreement is Unconstitutional due to being culturally vague: My Review argument was that the Agreement is unconstitutionally vague and ambiguous, in that South Africa has many different cultures, with many perspectives on the „Kill Boere‟ issue, and the Mediation Agreement pretends South Africa is one happy monoculture family. The Mediation Agreement does not specify which cultures it is referring to. 2: Agreement ignores SA’s TRC Fraud Failure to Clearly Define ‘Reconciliation’ and address Ecocentric Scarcity as Cause of Violent Conflict Issues: Additionally, the Mediation Agreement had totally censored and ignored the evidence submitted to the Equality Court and the Supreme Court of Appeal, exposing South Africa‟s fraudulent Truth and Reconciliation Commission process and a country‟s legal establishment who refuse to clarify what their legal definition is for „Reconciliation‟18, and the TRC‟s “failure to investigate demographic http://sqswans.weebly.com/cct-alien-v-afriforum.html Declaring the Truth and Reconciliation Report‟s failure to provide clear and concise cultural/religious definition of „reconciliation‟ -- i.e. whether Lutheran Christian, African, Boer Afrikaner, Kairos Black Liberation Theology, Frantz Fanon Liberation, Radical Honesty, etc -- to be 17 18

youth bulge19 and „population production‟ breeding war20 acts of war as contributory factors to Apartheid violence, to be a failure of the requirements of the Promotion of National Unity and Reconciliation Act, 34 of 1995.” 3. Any ‘Peace’ Agreement that Ignores Scarcity as Cause of Violent Conflict is not a Credible Peace Agreement: Declaring that in our Post Peak NNR world, Sustainable Security requires seriously confronting Scarcity as a Cause of Violent Conflict, and to recommend that if the South African Government and its „Peace Leaders‟ are sincerely committed to implementing peaceful coexistent relations between races, cultures and religions; the SAG should include consideration of the role of overpopulation and overconsumption as root cause factors of resource scarcity pushing society to conflict and war. (a) a failure of the requirements of the Promotion of National Unity and Reconciliation Act, 34 of 1995, Section 2 (3)(1) “The objectives of the Commission shall be to promote national unity and reconciliation in a spirit of understanding which transcends the conflicts and divisions of the past.. “; and (b) an example of Archbishop Tutu‟s description of how vague definitions (in this case not even a vague definition) enable legal tyranny. For example: [1] War is Peace Whores consider „reconciliation‟ to be a tool of pretend problem solving manipulation, which can be used as a great PR publicity stunt to colonize ignorant minds into blind subservient belief in the „reconciliation‟ moral supremacy narrative. Reconciliation is achieved for as long as the subservient followers are in a state of moral supremacy cognitive dissonance, where objective or subjective enquiry is suspended, but if applied would reveal their belief in their state of moral supremacy reconciliation to be false, but lack the integrity and courage to admit they are addicted to being „morally superior‟, due to censoring all evidence exposing their two faced hypocrisy. [2] Lutheran Christians consider „reconciliation‟ to be a voluntary inner spiritual process, whereby reconciliation is achieved via sincere dialogue and a change of heart and perspective. [3] Kairos / Black Liberation Theology Christians consider „reconciliation‟ to be a socialist economic process, whereby reconciliation is only achieved once socialism is forcefully implemented. [4] Frantz Fanon Liberation Theologists consider „reconciliation‟ to be a physically violent process of „liberating‟ the „colonized mind‟ by violence „on the rotting corpse of the settler‟. Reconciliation occurs once all the settlers corpses are dead and rotting. [5] Radical Honesty is a non-violent Fanon process, where reconciliation is a psychological and sensate physical experience of releasing of anger and resentments. It is the liberation of both the settler and the colonized minds, by release of both of their suppressed violence, not physically, but verbally: face to face, through expressions of their resentments and appreciations, until all suppressed sensate anger is released. Radical Honesty forgiveness occurs when two former enemies sit across from each other, and have verbally liberated their pent up sensate anger and rage, the body is in a state of released sensate tension, similar to the emotions released in a sexual orgasm, irrespective of however long it takes. Reconciliation occurs when the fragile ego mind is no longer colonized by the suppressed anger in the body. 19 Demographics & Violence: Youth Bulges: Numerous reports provide details how population age structures have significant impacts on a countries stability, governance, economic development and social well-being. Put differently, countries with large populations of idle young men, known as youth bulges, account for 70 – 90 percent of all civil conflicts. Additionally a wealth of historical studies indicates that cycles of rebellion and military campaigns in the early modern and modern world tended to coincide with periods when young adults comprised an unusually large proportion of the population. Youth Bulge Reports: (1) The Shape of Things to Come: Why Age Structure Matters to a Safer More Equitable World, by Population Action International; (2) YouthQuake: Population, fertility and environment in the 21st Century, by Optimum Population Trust. 20 “We must all understand that the most potent weapons of war are the penis and the womb. Therefore, if you cannot convince a group to control its population by discussion, debate, intelligent analysis etc., you must consider their action in using the penis and the womb to increase population an act of war.” - Former Municipal Court Judge Jason G. Brent

4. Alternatively, to order all South African’s to prepare for SA’s Race War in the impending Peak NNR Crisis of Conflict: If South Africa‟s TRC Fraud Fragile Egos are more important than confronting the „Scarcity as Cause of Violent Conflict‟ factor; all South African‟s should prepare themselves for the impending Race and Class War Consequences of the Peak NNR Crisis of Conflict. On 29 November 2012, Concourt Registrar refused to issue my application a case number, or process it, unless I met certain „Rules of the Court‟ (PDF 21), which include filing 25 printed hard copies via land mail, and finding legal representation. On 06 December 2012, I filed “Appeal of Concourt Registrar’s Refusal to Process My Concourt Application: Alien on Pale Blue Dot v Afriforum et al” (PDF22), to the Concourt Justices, via the Registrar, requesting a Constitutional Court declaratory order confirming that: (A) I am unable to find a lawyer to represent me as member of the Radical Honesty culture.. Therein I request leniency from the Justices for these „Rules of Court‟, in that I am a Pro Se Radical Honesty PP4PP culture applicant, i.e: (A) I cannot find any lawyer to represent me, I have not been able to find any lawyer to represent me for the past ten years, because there are no lawyers or Advocates in South Africa who are willing to represent me, as a member of the Radical Honesty culture, and (B) all courts provide Pro Se applicants with more lenient rules, than those required of applicants who have legal representation; (C) my Ecocentric Pay the Price 4 Peace Peacenik (PP4PP) lifestyle means that I make sure that my consumption and procreation lifestyle does not exceed the carrying capacity of South Africa; (D) the Registrar appears to be discriminating against me, either because I am a Pro Se applicant, or because I am a member of the Radical Honesty culture, or both. I contacted the following Law Societies and Bar Associations to enquire whether they knew of any lawyer willing to represent a member of the Radical Honesty culture: Legal Aid: Chair Vidhu Vedalankar (PDF23) | Jhb Bar Ass: Pro Bono Chair: (PDF24) | Cape Law Society (PDF25) | Cape Bar Council (PDF26) | Free State Law Society (PDF27) | Free State Soc of Advocates (PDF28) | General Counsel of Bar of SA (PDF29) | KwaZulu Natal Law Society (PDF30) | Law Society of South Africa (PDF31) | Pretoria Society of Advocates (PDF32) | Soc of Adv KwaZulu Natal http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/12-11-29_concourtregistrar_letter_to_lara_johnstone.pdf 22 http://sqswans.weebly.com/06-dec-app-reg.html 23 http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/12-11-29_legal_aid-vidhu_vedalankar.pdf 24 http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/12-1206_concourt_justices_encl_g_jhb_bar_assoc_-_pf_louw.pdf 25 http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/12-11-30_cape_law_society.pdf 26 http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/_12-11-30_cape_bar_council.pdf 27 http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/12-11-30_free_state_law_society.pdf 28 http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/12-11-30_free_state_soc_of_advocates.pdf 29 http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/12-11-30_general_counsel_of_bar_of_sa__exec_sec.pdf 30 http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/12-1206_concourt_justices_encl_h_kzn_law_society.pdf 31 http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/12-11-30_law_society_of_south_africa.pdf 21

- Dbn (PDF33) | Soc of Adv KwaZulu Natal - Pmb (PDF34) | Northern Province Law Society: M van Niekerk (PDF35). I also submitted a Press Release to the SA Press Association (SAPA) Wire, to attempt to find a Radical Honesty lawyer (SAPA and SA Editors refused to publish it, saying it is „not news‟, that I am unable to find a lawyer to represent a member of the Radical Honesty culture). SAPA published the Press Release to their „news wire‟, but did not write a SAPA news story about it, which they generally do. Lawyers do not read the „news wire‟, they read the newspapers. I telephoned SAPA to find out why they did not write a story about it, whereupon the SAPA Journalist informed me that it was “not news”, that a member of the Radical Honesty culture cannot find a lawyer and is denied access to SA court‟s. When I asked why other SA media publications did not publish it, she said she thought, they also probably think it is “not news”. I then wrote an email to all of the Editors, asking them whether they “believe that the fact that a South African citizen member of the Radical Honesty culture, has been unable to find a lawyer to represent her, as a member of the Radical Honesty culture, for the past ten years, and in a current case before the Constitutional Court, is “not news”?” None of them responded and none of them published a story to inform SA lawyers that a South African citizen member of the Radical Honesty culture, has been unable to find a lawyer to represent her, as a member of the Radical Honesty culture, for the past ten years, and in a current case before the Constitutional Court. There has been no response from the Constitutional Court Registrar, or the Concourt Justices to my Radical Honesty culture appeal of the Registrar‟s decisions. On 11 December 2012, I filed two complaints with the CRL Rights Commission: 

On 04 February, I sent a reminder to the CRL Rights Commission authorities (including yourself) requesting a status report as to my aforementioned complaints, in terms of CRL Rights Commission's procedures for 'ensuring that the rights of a community are protected', as detailed under: 4.1. Screening of Complaint, and 4.2 Complaints handling. I also telephoned the CRL Rights Commission, and was informed by the receptionist to speak to a lady named Baqlolile (spelling?). I called at least 5 times, and every time the receptionist put me through to Baqlolile, I would ask to confirm whether I was speaking to the right person, and she would refuse to confirm her name, and put down the phone. On 06 February 2013, I received an acknowledgement of receipt for my SAPA and SA Media Editors, discrimination complaint, from Mrs. Makgoba. There has been no response from the CRL Rights Commission to my Discrimination and Denial of Access to Courts for member of Radical Honesty culture, by Constitutional Court Registrar (PDF38). Her letter requested that I “Kindly explain to the Commission on how you would like the commission to assist you in relation to the above matter.” I responded that: I imagine the best way to proceed in handling the complaint would be to contact the offending party editors, in writing (including providing a copy of my complaint to them), to ask them to provide their official editorial response and reasons for their opinions and decisions on the matter. The person to whom I spoke to on the telephone was a journalist, and did not want to give me her name. Since the editors refused to respond to me personally, on the matter, regarding the letters I wrote to them; perhaps they shall respond to the Commission. Once they have responded, or if they refuse to respond to the Commission, I/the Commission can be more fully informed on the Editor‟s thinking and reasons. Unless you have other suggestions for resolving the matter. If so, I am happy to hear them. Mrs. Makgoba responded “Would you please explain in detail what cultural, religious or linguistic right of yours, was violated by SAPA and other media editors.” Note: She did not indicate that she needed more information as to ‘how’ my cultural, religious or linguistic rights had been violated; so I concluded she had enough information on how my rights had been violated, she only required information on what specific rights had been violated. I responded: http://sqswans.weebly.com/uploads/1/3/8/7/13878165/12-1211_crlrightscomm_complaint_concourt_registrar.pdf 38

Article 9 Equality: Everyone is equal before the law and has the right to equal protection and benefit of the law. ‌ (3) The state may not unfairly discriminate directly or indirectly against anyone on one or more grounds, including race, gender, sex, pregnancy, marital status, ethnic or social origin, colour, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, conscience, belief, culture, language and birth. 30. Language and culture: Everyone has the right to use the language and to participate in the cultural life of their choice, but no one exercising these rights may do so in a manner inconsistent with any provision of the Bill of Rights. 34. Access to courts: Everyone has the right to have any dispute that can be resolved by the application of law decided in a fair public hearing before a court or, where appropriate, another independent and impartial tribunal or forum. On 07 February 2013, Ms Makgoba ruled that “the commission has taken strive to analyse your complaint with regard to the above subject matter. Based on the fact that you have been unable to state cultural or religious or linguistic right that has been violated, except for quoting the constitutional provisions, the commission has concluded therefore that your matter falls outside the commission's mandate. Accordingly the commision has dismissed your matter and proceed to close the file.â€? Respectfully,

Language and culture: Everyone has the right to use the language and to participate in the cultural life of their choice, but no one exercising these rights may do so in a manner inconsistent with any provision of the Bill of Rights. 34.

On 27 November 2012, I filed a Pro Se application with the Constitutional Court Registrar, for Radical Honesty culture Review of the „Kill Boer‟ Hate Speech Negotiated Agreement between Afriforum/TAU-SA and Julius Malema/ANC, 2

wherein I specifically requested an order from the court, for the “Permission to invoke cultural law in S. 15(3), 30, 31, and 18; to enable the Applicant to honour the duty and responsibility to uphold the principles upon which her Radical 4

Honesty culture is based; and Psychological Integrity in Section 12 ; the former which may require the application of choice of law rules.” On 29 November 2012, Concourt Registrar refused to issue my application a case number, or process it, unless I met certain „Rules of the Court‟, which included finding legal representation. On 06 December 2012, I filed “Appeal of Concourt Registrar‟s Refusal to Process My Concourt Application: Alien on Pale Blue Dot v Afriforum et al”, to the Concourt Justices, via the Registrar; wherein I informed the Registrar that I cannot find any lawyer to represent me, I have not been able to find any lawyer to represent me for the past ten years, because there are no lawyers or Advocates in South Africa who are willing to represent me, as a member of the Radical Honesty culture. The registrar did not appear to believe me, so I wrote a Press Release, which I submitted (for R275.00) to SAPA, wherein I attempt to find a lawyer who is willing to represent someone from the Radical Honesty culture. SAPA published the Press Release to their „wire‟, did not write a SAPA news story about it, which they generally do. I telephoned SAPA to find out why they did not write a story about it, whereupon the SAPA Journalist informed me that it was „not news‟. When I asked why other SA media publications did not publish it, she said she thought, they also probably think it is „not news‟. I then wrote an email to all of the Editors (Annex A), asking them whether they “believe that the fact that a South African citizen member of the Radical Honesty culture, has been unable to find a lawyer to represent her, as a member of the Radical Honesty culture, for the past ten years, and in a current case before the Constitutional Court, is “not news”?” None of them responded and none of them published a story to inform SA lawyers that a South African citizen member of the Radical Honesty culture, has been unable to find a lawyer to represent her, as a member of the Radical Honesty culture, for the past ten years, and in a current case before the Constitutional Court. In the United States Supreme Court Case: In re Oliver, 333 U.S. [at] 270-271, the Justices argue that “the knowledge that every criminal trial is subject to contemporaneous review in the forum of public opinion is an effective restraint on

Previously, the state had assumed complete discretion in deciding whether and to what extent customary law should be recognized, an attitude typical of colonial thinking, for Africans were subject to whatever policies the conquering state chose to impose on them. Now, however, the state has a duty to allow people to participate in the culture they choose, implicit in this duty is a responsibility to uphold the institutions on which that culture is based.‟ 4 12.

I don‟t have a lawyer, because no lawyer in South Africa, that I am aware of, is willing to represent an individual from the Radical Honesty culture; yet the media deny me access to the publicity to find such a possible lawyer; or at least to unequivocally confirm that such a lawyer does not exist. Media editors hate the Radical Honesty culture, because we practice 100% transparency (so they are unable to threaten or frighten us with exposing any of our secrets, cause we ain't got no secrets) and because we don't practice 'Public Relations'. The media don‟t believe it is their professional job to report on all cultures and all news with impartiality and fairness.

A friend of mine, who is not a member of the Radical Honesty culture, says having a Radical Honesty friend, is similar to having a friend with „Tourettes Syndrome‟.

CONCOURT CASE SEEKS RADICAL HONESTY LAWYER

Body:

A Constitutional Court Application for Review of the Supreme Court of Appeal "Kill Boer" Hate Speech Negotiated Agreement between Afriforum, TAU-SA, Julius Malema and the ANC, is seeking a 'Radical Honesty lawyer'. The Pro Se application was filed with the Constitutional Court Registrar on 27 November, by an EcoFeminist paralegal and South Africa's only member of the Radical Honesty culture. The respondents are: Afriforum, Transvaal Agricultural Union, Julius Malema, African National Congress, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Former Presidents Nelson Mandela and FW de Klerk, CRL Rights Commission, Norwegian Nobel Committee: Chair, Central Intelligence Agency: Director, and David Petraeus. The application requests the Court to issue orders: (1) allowing the applicant to invoke cultural law on behalf of her Radical Honesty culture; (2) to review the ambiguity and lack of clarity of the Afriforum-Malema SCA Negotiated Agreement, which censored the „TRC Fraud‟ evidence submitted to the Equality and Supreme Court of Appeal by the Applicant; (4) that a credible proactive peace plan requires confronting Peak Non-renewable Natural Resources (NNR) and Overpopulation & Consumption driven Scarcity as a Cause of Violent Conflict; (5) Alternatively; to warn all South African‟s to prepare for SA‟s Race and Class War in the impending Crisis of Conflict. The Concourt Registrar suggested the Applicant get legal representation. She unsuccessfully contacted Legal Aid, Law Societies and Bar Associations to find a lawyer to represent her, as a member of the Radical Honesty culture. The Radical Honesty culture was founded by Dr. Brad Blanton, CEO of the Center for Radical Honesty, dedicated to promoting honesty in the world; a former candidate for US Congress in 2004 and 2006, on the platform of “Honesty in Politics” and a bestselling author of the „Radical Honesty‟ series of books. Futilitarians commitment to transparency makes Wikileaks look like secrecy addicts. They believe trust and strong relationships are a result of vulnerable transparency and clear communication: “being specific about anger and forgiveness”, and all „diplomacy‟, „etiquette‟, „manners‟ and „public relations‟ are considered lying and manipulative deception.


A radical honesty lawyer would be required to place transparency, truth telling and truth seeking as a higher priority than „winning‟ the case. In radical honesty a „true win-win‟ in any dispute occurs when the dispute resolution process does not censor politically incorrect or controversial information, or emotions as „irrelevant‟. Finding the Truth is what matters, wherever that search leads. Futilitarians believe Enlightenment and Personal (or Social) Transformation can only occur in a being willing to be her DUH village idiot self: willing to give up her Bullshit the Public Relations image management; in exchange for total transparency, exposing her strengths and weaknesses: her naked psychological, emotional, intellectual DUUUUHHHHH self in the moment. As Blanton argues in Practicing Radical Honesty: “Your neuroses, your limiting beliefs, your defenses, your paranoia, and your hypersensitivity can all become useful tools once your perspective on them changes.” Interested 'Radical Honesty' lawyers may contact the applicant on (071) 170 1954.
