Following some of J.A.BRO's Autobiographical comments:

“School time seemed primarily an endless trauma of compulsion and demands. The wish for freedom and independence was pronounced at an early age.

This practiced form of integration of unsuspecting, vulnerable children and dependent youth, which lasts for decades, seems all the more questionable if it is taken into account that the single child, because of the wholesale demand of permanent proof of achievement in all teaching units, must necessarily suffer with regard to his or her respective talents and inclinations.

Also, it must be considered in spite of the constant, sick-making stress within connected, the questionable, always newly developed and partly in the praxis impracticable efforts of “reform” of the school system are, in concern for the children’s health, in the given way just not acceptable.

At the same time, the young students are faced with enforced compromises and concessions of “integration” into a questionable society-system of mass-formation, often controversial to their respective natural assessments and so in disregard of their very own individuality.

In addition to the forced subordinations and the fears resulting from, the juveniles are constantly exposed with for years, seems all the more regrettable when only the intellectual development is primarily and exclusively considered.

Those unfortunate but avoidable circumstances often resultt in irreparable neglect of the young personalities’ undisturbed mental and spiritual development.

Our sense of responsibility would ask for an answer to the question:

What value do these practices have? It is a sad but provable matter of fact that Western World’s social and societal (family) system is now described as relatively neurotic by internationally most renown psychologists, independently seen (even within connected) of the respective socio-political science and labor market with all its known and still only to be assumed negative results for the future generations and their environmental circumstances.

In other words, it was found from credible statistics that a frightfully high percentage of Western World’s population – no matter of age, education and social standing - is in ever increasing measure to psychosomatic disturbances and other pathological manifestations.
