It's about time that genuine Survivors find their own voice, for too long we have watched and listened to Fake-Survivors and their evil groupies who seem to dominate all discussions on genuine Survivors issues. Busybodies who trade in the sin of gossip and slanderers. A perverse Fake-Survivor stirs up dissension, using gossip to separate close friends. Fake-Survivors who engage in this behaviour do nothing but stir up trouble and cause anger, bitterness, and pain among genuine Survivors. We know that Fake-Survivors thrive on this and look for opportunities to destroy genuine Survivors. “A fool’s mouth (Fake-Survivor) is his or her undoing, and his or her lips are a snare to their soul.
It’s with great sadness that we as Survivors learn about the early deaths of fellow Survivors. Worse still when we learn about their helpless struggles, their ill health, their struggles with drink, drugs, depression and loneliness. Their failed marriages, their down beaten lives, their utter realisation that their childhoods were stolen, subject to daily beatings, and humiliating rapes. Many abandoned as in their cruel and distorted childhoods to the nearby gutters of most major cities and towns in Ireland. Their advantages in life were very limited, due to lack of basic education, and family structures. Their daily life struggles, their black and grey depression wallowing in an ocean of despair. Regrettably for many true Survivors happiness is found at the end of a demon bottle of liquid death or a needle of white despair, which lingers for a short time, as life withers on the vine of useless veins.
The facts speak for themselves, we true Survivors are losing 3, to 5,000 Survivors a year. Over 80% of Survivors today are over 65 years old and in bad health, physically and mentally. Their daily struggles to live, or pay rent, add to their struggles. Many sadly remain homeless, covered in a constant blanket of cold and hunger, a brutal daily discomfort, with few places to seek both medical help and personal safety.
One of the major problems that true Survivors speak about is, we have no voice that truly represents us, the genuine Survivor. It seems that Irish Government Officials are only interested in so-called Fake-Survivors, who never spend a wet day in a Mother and Baby Home, or any of the dozens of Religious Gulags that dot the landscape of Ireland.
We were marginalised as children by both the Clerics and the Irish Government, which allowed the most horrendous cruelty to be committed upon us as helpless children. Now again we genuine Survivors are again marginalised, by these Fake-Survivors and grovelling Politicians and insincere Clerics. They do not speak for any Survivor, they certainly do not speak for me, as a Survivor of 18 years in various Religious Gulags.
These fake Survivors with their grovelling Politicians and insincere Clerics, bring nothing but pain. They only speak to enrich themselves and flatter and fatten both their pockets while masturbating the vanity of many narcissist politicians, kissing the rings of insincere clerics, who lack true empathy.
These so-called Fake-Survivors go on TV and Radio and talk about Survivors in general. Using a distorted language of unfamiliar experience of real life, lived in any of the Religious Gulags in Ireland.
These same Fake-Survivors, use their time and energy degrading and further marginalising true Survivors. Fake-Survivors spread their malicious poison on many social platforms, injecting poisonous venom into genuine Survivors who challenge them.
True Survivors don’t need to speak their names, Fake-Survivors lack true empathy, in understanding the daily pain of genuine Survivors and their real issues. Fake-Survivors general ignorance speaks volumes to true Survivors, Fake-Survivors are insensitive and uncaring to true Survivors.
Genuine Survivors want action not words, the Irish Government needs to step up and honour their pledges, their promises made to all Survivors. We sadly are running out of time, a couple of hundred Survivors are unnecessarily dying every month. No Survivor should be struggling with the basics of life, like, warmth, housing, food, human kindness, medical and mental services. No Survivor should be living in the gutter. Survivors should be represented by True-Survivors, and not Fake-Survivors or their enablers. Owen Felix O’Neill
