    When I was sixteen my dad was the stupidest person on the planet.
    When I was thirty-five I was surprised at how much he had learned.
    Now that I’m seventy I realize he was a genius all along.

    I don’t think it always works that way for everyone. I always thought my father was an idiot and as I experienced more of life and learned and grew, the stupider he seemed to me. He never grew an iota and died still a bigoted, narrow-minded, ill-informed, negative, life and joy-sucker. Sad. I wonder what other people have to say about this.

    I understand what you say. But did he feel the same way towards his parents?

    I think the biggest part of his problem was that he repressed his feelings about his parents totally. He used to tell me that the more his father beat him up, the more it showed how much he loved him. Of course this confusion of love and violence was part of a terrific confusion and very conflicted feelings in him towards everyone and he was a very unhappy individual, very negative, but he could never seek help because he knew everything and was never wrong. Like I said, he was a sad man. I believe that these sort of dynamics are pretty common in families across the world and thus we have loads of dysfunctional people running around and a violent dysfunctional world. Nowhere is the distribution of power more one-sided than in the parent-child relationship and there is no job in this world that requires less training than the job of parent. These are my opinions and I know that many people cannot allow themselves to even think negatively about their parents and probably see no connection between some of the dynamics I’ve mentioned and the insanity of the world.
