Book Extract

A Second Manifesto for the 21st Century

A full three decades ago, I learned something in my class on infant psychology at a major university.

The professor was great-ardent and intelligent, trained at the University of Minnesota Child Development Center, one of the most prestigious university spots in the academic world of child development. He was actively involved in researching infant life and experience. I learned that newborns could not focus their eyes for a while after birth, a couple of days more or less. I accepted this along with all kinds of other valuable information in my quest to understand life, my life in particular.

That was 1974. Twelve years later, on August 31, 1986, I learned that my newborn son was intensely focused immediately upon entry from his mother's womb into the world of air-eyes wide open, intense, and appearing angry after a very difficult struggle to get his big head through mother's cervix. I, too, was wide open after one of the most awesome peak experiences of my life.

Eighteen years later, in 2004, I met one of my teachers for the first time, and heard a sentence that gave me a clear way to think about this business of focusing infants and other "things I learned at school."

Thomas Szasz is the finest master of language and logic that I have met, particularly excelling in the art of creating aphorisms-short, pithy statements of truth. This day I listened to him speak on his chosen vocation, articulating the truth about psychiatry and our so-called mental health system. Dr. Szasz quoted American humorist Josh Billings' quip that, "The problem is not that people don't know anything, it's that they know so many things that ain't so!" (I have later learned from Leonard Roy Frank, editor of Random House Webster's Quotationary, that this aphorism more likely came from Artemus Ward, who said that, "It's not so much what folks don't know that causes problems, it's what they do know that ain't so.")

This essay is an effort to answer the question of how people know so much that ain't so, and live in denial about what is. It is also a sequel to my first manifesto, written three years ago as a chapter in my book, True Nature and Great Misunderstandings, titled "A 21 st Century Manifesto for Parenting."
