The information which has been presented thus far is pretty damned harrowing in and of itself, but the thing that really gets between ones vertebrae
about this, in my opinion, is that when you consider the speech and communication issues that all the children have, it is probable that the terrible
things they have spoken of already, are not a complete recounting of the abuses they have all suffered. They will be the things that have lodged in
their minds, but there will likely be thousands of incidents, which though terrible, have been washed aside, or more accurately buried under the
weight of the sheer amount of suffering they have endured.
This ghastly state of affairs is made no easier by the state of the elders of this group, who, by the sounds of it, were abused themselves, and may
have grown up thinking of all of this as absolutely normal, making responding to their actions all the more difficult. Not only have the actions of
the elders of the group, in continuing to propagate this scenario, doomed the younger members of this family to lives made harder by the genetic
abnormalities they were bound to suffer, but the mental scarring, the skewed psycho-sexual development, the segregation away from regular society,
will make the chances of any of these kids ever living a joyful life, slim at best, and non-existent at worst.
And it is difficult to know how to respond to the adults, and I bring this up again because I think it is worth pointing out, that if the adults in
the family have indeed suffered similarly to the way the current young generation of the family are, then they are victims too, and their every action
since childhood has been dictated by their own fears and mental dysfunctions, bought on by a combination of the manifestation of the effects of
inbreeding in their own brain chemistry, and the psychological abuse they have also been through.
The system under which they have lived for generations, is just as much self replicating as it is self destructive, because even as they reinforce the
genetic coding malformities which would see the family line self eradicate over time, the psychological abuse keeps these people orbiting around each
other, rather than seeking aid outside the family circle, which would be hard enough without the speech impediments, lack of hygiene, and the
behavioral issues which the younger members of the family display.
These people have been a culture unto themselves for generations, and as such it is difficult to know precisely how to proceed with any potential
reintegration into society, for those young enough to be reprogrammed anyway. For the elders, I hold no hope that they will ever be able to enter
mainstream society. I would posit that the best they can hope for is a good psychiatric unit for the rest of their days, because to have not only
suffered themselves, but been the root of the suffering of their own offspring must be a burden of gargantuan proportions. It is likely that the head
of the family has been unwilling to accept the reality of what she has been responsible for, because to do so would see her entire psyche collapse
under the guilt.
This case, and even the little we know, that has been released, or revealed on the topic is tragic, horrific, and thoroughly awful, and is likely to
be merely the peak of an extremely ugly iceberg.
