‘Any individual who is truly ahead of their own time is usually not appreciated and also is seen as a threat.’

 

Surely not all criticism from all sources can be dismissed in this way?  That kind of closes the door, don’t you think? Could it be that one of the reasons for the backlash against you is that you seem unwilling to consider the opinion of anyone who disagrees with you?  Also it appears to be the case that most of your long-term students have left you over the years. Does that not deeply trouble and concern you? Is it really, as you seem to think, all and always their fault? Is it not possible to become so enamoured with the cause, with saving ‘humanity’, to become blind and invulnerable to the real humans, and the real human relationships around us? Is it time for a re-think?
