Re: “Oakland Counseling Guru Accused of Sexual Assault

In response to those who wrote after Grace, i found this on a website:

"False accusations run rampant in California sex crime cases. This is nowhere more obvious than by looking at the numerous innocent individuals whose false charges have been dismissed thanks to DNA evidence. Many of these individuals have been freed from prison after being wrongly convicted of rape based on false accusations and shoddy police work. It's my job to make sure that my client's unjust charges are dismissed from the start."

Beyound that, if someone gets invited to a sex party with drugs, they do not have to go. No one is holding them hostage and people can read up on LSD effects. No one can claim ignorance.

That we blame leaders for influencing us is part of the problem in this world, as is blaming the system and filing lawsuits that keep people afraid of taking risks to get close to others and mentor them or help them to recover from losses in their lives. More regulations against touching rob us all of the affection we need to thrive as human beings.

We do not need more regulations. We need more access to resources both externally and internally and more playfulness and openness to new experiences and empathy towards people who disagree with us.

What I also find interesting here is the article depicting Steve as a spiritual guru. Like many people he has his own way of making sense of the world and creating meaning, but Steve I know was not a person to spiritualize anything nor would he want anyone to follow blindly.

It is my own feeling that there something amiss with this whole thing. No doubt the hype of the #metoo campaign is interfering with objectivity and women want someone to pay for all their hurts even if it is the wrong guy.
