Critical reflection on practice is a requirement of the relationship between theory and practice. Otherwise, theory becomes simply “blah, blah, blah, ” and practice, pure activism. Paulo Freire. Physician Heal Thyself. Luke 4.23





“[T]he more radical the person is, the more fully he or she enters into reality so that, knowing it better, he or she can transform it. This individual is not afraid to confront, to listen, to see the world unveiled. This person is not afraid to meet the people or to enter into a dialogue with them. This person does not consider himself or herself the proprietor of history or of all people, or the liberator of the oppressed; but he or she does commit himself or herself, within history, to fight at their side.” ― Paulo Freire, Pedagogy of the Oppressed

Gatekeepers , Foundations and Democracy.Usefull Idiot School. Justin Walker 8 hours ago What a wasted opportunity! I actually talked to Simon on the phone last Friday and told him to ask Carney about the 1914 Bradbury Pound and why Sovereign National Credit should be restored – that is the proven ability of HM Treasury to create, issue and control all the money needed for Britain’s sovereignty, prosperity and happiness. Called M0 at 100%, this is debt-free and interest-free money that is created by the government that is based on our nation’s wealth and labour potential…and it doesn’t lead to inflation. It was a retired Director of the Bank of England who tipped me off back in 2012 about this proven fiscal measure and that it would solve all of Britain’s economic woes. Positive Money knows all about this but has done absolutely nothing. And why does Positive Money never discuss the machinations of the secretive Bank for International Settlements which controls sixty of the world’s central banks including the Bank of England? Sorry, but this meeting was a completely wasted opportunity…especially as the hidden Deep State created the appalling science of Man-made Global Warming. I know this because Aurelio Peccei, the co-founder of the Club of Rome, told me personally back in 1982 that his organisation WAS CREATING A GLOBAL PROBLEM TO FRIGHTEN THE WORLD INTO ACCEPTING GLOBAL GOVERNANCE! And if you don’t believe me, ask Jeremy Corbyn’s brother Piers, a highly respected climatologist. Or Professor David Bellamy who told me bluntly, “it’s all bad science!”. Come on people, please wake up to the scam that the central banking system is and what the hidden and corporate Deep State is doing to all of us to take away our prosperity and ancient freedoms as they head us towards a debt-slavery Orwellian future. Please go to

Physician, heal thyself

Physician, heal thyself (GreekἸατρέ, θεράπευσον σεαυτόνIatre, therapeuson seauton), sometimes quoted in the Latin form, Medice, cura te ipsum, is an ancient proverb appearing in Luke 4:23. There Jesus is quoted as saying, “Ye will surely say unto me this proverb, ‘”Physician, heal thyself”: whatsoever we have heard done in Capernaum, do also here in thy country.'”[1] At least one commentator has pointed out the echo of similar skepticism in the taunts that Jesus would ultimately hear while hanging on the cross: “He saved others; himself he cannot save”.[2] The shortened Latin form of the proverb, Medice, cura te ipsum, was made famous through the Latin translation of the Bible, the Vulgate, and so gained currency across Europe.

Similar proverbs with a medical theme appear in other Jewish literature.[3] “Physician, Physician, Heal thine own limp!”, for example, can be found in Genesis Rabbah 23:4.[4] Such proverbs also appear in literary Classical texts from at least the 6th century BCE. The Greek dramatist Aeschylus refers to one in his Prometheus Bound, where the chorus comments to the suffering Prometheus, “Like an unskilled doctor, fallen ill, you lose heart and cannot discover by which remedies to cure your own disease.”[5]

The moral of the proverb in general, containing within itself also a criticism of hypocrisy, is to attend to one’s own defects before those in others.[6] This meaning is underlined in the fable of The Frog and the Fox that was attributed to Aesop.
