RESEARCH, YOUTH: Behavioural problems in youths are associated with differences in the brain

RESEARCH, YOUTH: Behavioural problems in youths are associated with differences in the brain

[…] The researchers from the University of Birmingham found that, compared to typically developing youths, those with behavioural problems show grey matter reductions specifically within the amygdala, the insula, and the prefrontal cortex.

These brain areas are important for decision-making, empathic responses, reading facial expressions and emotion regulation; key cognitive and affective processes that are shown to be deficient in youths with behavioural problems.

Oh, What a Tangled Web We Weave …

“Oh! What a tangled web we weave when first we practice to deceive” – Sir Walter Scott, Marmion.

Observe … the magnificent, elaborate, deceptive and very tangled Machiavellian backdrop of the new generation and special task order of business ventures — the Jessie Spectre Multinational Organization. The group of companies the members of the Organization all suddenly seem to own, companies they are compelled to maintain, and ones they are all to be legally and financially accountable for — since every one has been duped, drawn and wrapped in a web of lies and deceit.

And just why are we calling it Jessie’s company and Don Spectre? Simple. Jessie has always expressed after all, both verbally and in action, how converting the Organization into a global business enterprise would prove she could make money (for her and her kind) under her husband’s rule and approval.

And Don Spectre is just her man and that of St. OWE to furnish impeccable business acumen for the job, which he executes as an art form.

Thus the current existence of the numerous business enterprises the last three years under our enterprising and uncontested business directors.  And lo and behold, the princely sum of US$200+ million and “growing” in outrageous debt — which we are now all obligated to settle, irregardless of whether you’re a destitute farmer or fisherman, an OFW, or a business-saavy entrepreneur.

Everyone is burdened and accountable for the Debt.

What marvellous luck to have gullible members fund and grant all Jessie’s and Don Spectre’s personal earthly desire and wishes in total ignorance, albeit in shocked disbelief at the recent discovery and revelation of the hoax pulled over them expeditiously.

What can they all do now? It’s done. They’re all rendered helpless – presented with a fait accompli.  Tsk. Tsk. Tsk.  Just the way it was all planned out by Jessie, her kids and protégé, Lord Rascal, and her ruthless, ever so clever and cunning Don Spectre with his equally obnoxious family members.

Well, some members in the Organization are shocked, the others accept the debt like the idiots they are, telling themselves stupidly that it’s no big deal, defending and approving its existence … but give it say, a few more years, after all, pockets these days are never as full and deep as in the distant past when it comes to doling out payments to maintain the lavish lifestyle of Jessie and her gluttonous, guileful, homely looking children and their pet projects.

Now, how do we like being made to pay (under coercion), for a massive, crippling debt we all signed for as an ignorant, legal guarantor when we submitted biometrics of our fingerprints and waiver of rights, as per the last personal record or application form we were instructed and obliged to update and submit.

And, how many of us have gone into debt for a million dollars in the United States currency? A show of hands, please. How about 100 million dollars? What about over 200 million dollars?

Do you know what it is like to pay mortgage and face the risk of defaulting on a bank payment?

How many have gone into personal debt with your eyes wide open? Do you enjoy being put in a situation where you owe money to others? To the bank? To loan sharks? What about with your eyes closed, when deals, in the millions in the United States currency will commit you legally in a tight, inescapable bind, are negotiated and sealed behind your back — and you are made the official and total guarantor for that millions of dollar debt?

Hate, Love, and Indifference

Everyone’s tolerance level is different, but Tolerance or enduring continuous subjection to something unbearable can be considered a bad concept especially when one is inundated with continuous manipulated lies. And let me quote one professional liar to illustrate this: “Never admit a lie – simply keep repeating it.”— Joseph Goebbels, Adolf Hitler’s Minister of Propaganda.

Nice one, eh?  We’re seeing a lot of that happening these days.

There are two better concepts other than Tolerance which I would prefer to consider, especially when you’ve reached the end of your tolerance level, and people, in my opinion, will support either one of the two concepts easily — Acceptance or Confrontation.
