"london florence" Discussed on Cults

"Hi I'm I'm Greg Poulsen and this is cults today. We're going to take a deep dive into the life of an Hamilton Byrne and the most disturbing new age group and Australia's earliest history the great white Brotherhood of initiates and Masters Aka the family. I'm here with my co host Vanessa. Richardson I everyone today. Today in part one of our two part episode we will focus on Hamilton. Burn herself her life her psyche and how she turned from a troubled child into one of the most notorious female cult leaders in history. In part two will broaden our focus from Anne Hamilton Byrne to the cult. She founded known as the Great White Brotherhood would've initiates and masters or simply. The family will learn about the different members of this cult and the tactics. Hamilton Byrne used to transform ordinary people from law-abiding law-abiding professionals into abusive monsters. The Great White Brotherhood of initiates and Masters was started by Anne in Hamilton. Burn in one thousand nine hundred sixty three and operated from its basis in Lake Ailton and the Dandenong ranges outside of Melbourne Australia until the Early Nineteen Ninety S. The people who follow to Anne. Hamilton Byrne believed she was the reincarnation of Jesus Christ and female form returned to lead humanity back from the brink after a coming apocalypse. She is one of only a few female cut leaders but her influence was no less powerful than their male counterparts by the mid Nineteen Seventies. These she had amassed a following of over five hundred people and was a master manipulator beautiful and charismatic with hypnotic Blue Eyes. She's psychedelic drugs to control her followers. But who would join an apocalyptic cult whose members indulged regularly. LSD nope not the first people you'd think of for even people of apparent disrepute. No Vanessa's going to take over on the psychology here and throughout the episode. A police Vanessa is not a licensed psychologist or psychiatrist. But she's she's done a lot of research for the show thanks Greg. The members of Ann's called were professionals who held sway in the legal medical judicial and academic communities areas largely respected in mainstream society. It was this respect which gave an her power allowing her to use her followers to manipulate trusted societal title institutions to Amass Wealth Property and to persecute the true victims the Great White Brotherhood the twenty eight children who were forced into the cult through shady adoptions and various other underhanded tactics LSD doomsday prophecies and bizarre collection of children. Where should we begin a story since Anne Hamilton Byrne had a fascination with children later in life perhaps the best place to start would be her childhood? What can you tell me about it? Well on the whole it was an impoverished wretched background. Perhaps that's why Ann Hamilton ended up changing her name. She was born. Evelyn Grace Victoria Edwards in nineteen eighteen. Twenty one in sale a city in the gippsland region of the Australian state of Victoria sale was a small farming town with only one main street. Though the the town was small Evelyn's family was not. She was the eldest of seven children. -At's interesting that she herself was part of a large family giving that she'd go onto to a massive family of twenty eight children who were Evelyn's parents per father Ralph. Edwards was born in eighteen ninety two in inner city Melbourne Australia. He lost his first wife in childbirth when he was fighting in World War One upon his return from the front in nineteen eighteen. He married Evelyn's mother who had recently moved to Melbourne from south London. Florence Hoyle believed she was a medium. Who could commune with the dead? But to the townspeople she was just the lady who set that fire to her hair in the street and two psychiatrists. She was a paranoid schizophrenic. Vanessa can you impact. That term. Sure thing schizophrenia. Is a serious areas mental illness that can be crippling without proper care. It's a kind of psychosis which means that those suffering from it can find it difficult to distinguish fantasy from reality the afflicted have hallucinations. Delusions hear. Voices that aren't there and can even believe that someone else controls their thoughts. They may be paranoid of others others and shut themselves off from the rest of the world that fire episode sound serious. Did she get any treatment. Well Florence was I committed in nineteen forty one when Evelyn. When was twenty years old? She spent almost half her life. Twenty seven years in Mental Hospitals Royal Park Mont Park Erat and Sunbury. Unfortunately none of these places were able to help she would die. Committed so Florence didn't get treatment until Evelyn was already an adult. That could have been nightmarish marriage for her kids. Did Ralph Act as a buffer between his wife and their kids when they were younger no he would come in and out of his family's lives after Evelyn was born Orne. He abandoned the family in nineteen twenty four. When Evelyn was three he turned up in a fishing community? On Victoria's western coast on official documents demint. He's listed his religion as spiritualist and his number of children zero. This disappearing act became a regular occurrence within vanishing every few years. There's with their father gone. Our mother mentally unstable records show that Evelyn's younger years were spent in the old Melbourne orphanage. That's a shame. Being institutionalized at a young age can have lasting psychological effects on a child who would kind of effects will a study conducted in Nineteen ninety-seven by James Sando. Oh and Janet. NAMBI found that orphan children were acutely aware of the change in their quality of life from when they had parents to apparent got sick to when they were orphaned these orphans were also a higher risk for negative effects as a result of their abandonment. This means they're more likely to develop psychological disorders. The study found that foster. Your parents and orphanage staff are more often than not unequipped to offer emotional support as a result many orphans suffer from severe depression and feel angry even after their doctors. Are you saying. That foster care isn't beneficial. I know tons of foster parents. Who Don't view their children as adopted children but just as their children like they loved them like their own? That's a good point. I was only saying that unless the foster parents are adoptees themselves. It can be difficult for them to get inside their child's head and provide provide the type of emotional support. That child needs however there is science to support the benefits of foster care. Really what kind of science will when a child is neglected. The way that Evelyn was and that leads to her being orphaned. It can have physical effects on the brain in terms of electrical activity if you think of healthy brain as a one. Hundred Watt Bulb Orphans. Usually have a forty watt. That's because a child's brain needs a reliable source of attention affection and stimulation children trend born into neglect lack. These things and so are slow to develop the gray and white matter in their brains in other words their brains were physically smaller. So what's the difference between gray and white matter. Gray matter includes regions of the brain involved in muscle control sensory perception emotions decision vision making and self control now. White matter is the insulation between the gray matter it can transmit electrical signals far more quickly than gray matter allowing doing different sections of the brain to communicate. If you think of the brain as a city gray matter is like the big buildings were all the work gets done and white matters like the telephone lines lines allowing quick transmissions from one building to another. So how does foster care factor into this. This study found that for kids in an orphanage. These problems persisted however when a child was adopted by foster parents their brains development increased they made improvements in IQ socio emotional functioning and language though they still fell short of the control group who had never been institutionalized so it's possible for neglected kids to make a pretty good recovery if they're adopted by foster parents yeah the earlier earlier the better. The results improved. Drastically of the child is adopted before age. Two also. It's worth noting that while it was possible for the children to recover the missing white white matter. They're gray matter. Volume stayed low regardless of whether or not they were put into foster care so the areas of Evelyn's brain that regulated her emotions and Decision Asian making and self control were undeveloped. Do you think that had anything to do with their development into a sociopathic cult leader. It's possible even probable but given that most children of adoption go onto lead relatively normal lives. It can't be the whole picture. We have to continue with the story the last documentation we have. Evelyn childhood years comes in one thousand nine hundred thousand nine when she was enrolled in the sunshine. Primary School on Melbourne's west side at age. Eight the only one who knows anything about those sears is Evelyn herself and she's not exactly giving out any interviews. When does the paper trail catch up with her? In nineteen forty one she resurfaced with a new name and Hamilton..

Florence is the world really ready for Vagina Museum him. If it was ready it would be too late tonight one.

I can't believe you're doing that but that's kind of why we need it. Really what what do you think you can accomplish with a Vagina Museum. Well what I'm hoping is to really distinct. Matai this talk of the BOJ's so it's it's really you know Tabu topic and that has real world consequences like people being too embarrassed to go to get their set of ICAL. Smith and people pull not being able to talk to their doctors. It becomes very difficult to talk about it. which has these impact on your life and museum? You know they used by societies. I T's and communities to showcase what they think is important and so by having Johnny Museum. It's us as a community coming together and say this causes the body should it'd be valued and should be celebrated. We have interviewed the founding director of the Penis Museum which is in Iceland and you know that he collects collects fallacies of all animals including people do you do you actually have specimens of vaginas on display in your museum. We we weren't having any specimens. we might be the best museums quite small because this is just off premises and so our expectations are. GonNa Range from everything from signs and house to all to culture to you know social history. I'm so there'd be lots and lots of different types of things on display. You have a crowd funding campaign and video. Can you describe to people how you're dressed up yeah so we put on what is essentially of both sides so it was like address up costume where it turns your whole body into evolve in your head is the clitoris son three war now what you're saying something very important shortened because it's a Vova caused him and that there is always this discussion devote that people don't know that there is a vulva and of China and so your Vagina Museum Kim also includes Volvos. I presume yes exactly the name was quite difficult because the museum is going to be about everything from the ovaries and the uterus to the coach arrests and the Labor and everything in between so the most accurate sort of name would actually be the gun ecological museum bought obviously that sounds super grocer and like who would go to that except like medical students so we were trying to think what what can we use. It's actually accessible and we go down to vagina and Vulva wherever China is just like the chew bit when you put things up and then babies come out nine months later all you can put all sorts of things up there and then the vulva is the outside bits so it's what you see on the External Genitalia. I'm what we found. Is that very few people neither words over so if if we were to call it the Volvo Museum lots of people were just kind of ignore it they would say oh. I don't know what that is. It must not be relevant to me and him by and the people who would know what it is like already now. what do you think that women as well don't know the difference between evolving vagina loads and ready to stop this one in five women in the UK don't know that they pay and much weight from different homes There's a huge lack knowledge but okay so you decided to call it the vagina the museum be. That's the to be bit. You call and your first exhibit is called muff busters. So what can we expect from that show so it's going to be exploring. There's music that we hear about so much. You know like if you have loads of sex in China will get rid of loose and you can tell by like how how are you know all these kind of miss that pervade this talk to me and then the exhibition will exclude the truth behind them why they persist and and how we can try and fight them but if you're saying that people are so shy about their anatomy. Why do you think so go to your museum. Something that I've really found is people are DESCR to these kinds of things because they feel like they talk about it with a friend. They'll be ridiculed if they go to their doctors over humiliated and so when they see the giants museum then suddenly like mud gays. I'm pearn using. You've the conversations that people have been desperate to happen so I think that's why people visit well. Flori- best of luck with your Vagina Museum. It's great to talk to you. Thank thank you thank you bye. I Florence Schefter is the founder of the Vagina Museum which opens next month in London you you can find out more about it on our website that CBC dot ca slash Ai H. as we mentioned Miss Schefter is following in the footsteps of another anatomically inclined to curator subverter Hartson. He's the founder of the Icelandic fallow logical museum which has dozens of fallacies of all types of creatures but back in August of two thousand seven. He was looking to get his hands on one specimen in particular a human Phallus from our archives drives. Here's Carol's conversation with Mr Henderson. I have been collecting for thirty three years now and I'm still waiting for for a human one but I've worked for leftist or donation so where are these letters have donation coming fan and then I have rocked three the ones running and he's one German and one America and so what is it about their penises feels to be in their museum. Wow I won the ICELANDER. He was a famous Thomas Woman is surrounded by the Indians mine is TV personality Germany's photographer but the American is he. He's he's talking about.

Now streaming on Netflix and from tirerack with more than five hundred tire models from twenty two manufacturers and an online tool for finding tires based on vehicle needs budget and brand tirerack dot com. Helping drivers find deliver install this is fresh air. And if you're just joining us, my guest is Jeff Guinn, the author of the new book the road to Jonestown Jim Jones and peoples temple. And it's about the cult leader Jim Jones who claim to be God and claim to be, you know, Lennon reincarnated developed this large cult following lead about a thousand followers to the jungle of Galliano or they built their own settlement. And it ended. With him, basically, forcing them to drink cyanide. Laced fruit punch and commit suicide because he knew his number was up, and he was taken everyone down with him. You said that you spoke to people who actually were on the site of this mass suicide after it happened. What did they find? The guy in east troops that came in the next morning thought they were going to be facing arms revolutionaries. They guess there might be a hundred or more Jonestown men armed with rifles waiting for them. So they're coming through the jungle cautiously it's the hot season in Guyana. There's been a torrential downpour the day before and steam is coming up from the floor of the jungles almost like fog. And so they're coming into Jonestown in the perimeter expect to be attacked any minute. They've got their guns up and ready, the fog the steam is in front of making hardly see and all of a sudden they start to stumble. And they think that maybe these revolutionaries place logs on the ground trip them up. And now they're gonna start shooting from ambush, and then a couple of the soldiers looked down and they can see through the fog and they start screaming because their bodies everywhere almost more than thinking count. And there. Are so horrified. The bugs have already been at these bodies, the the animals night creatures as the sun comes up deterioration starts setting in. The stench is awful. They originally think maybe four hundred people died where the other six hundred or so they don't realize for another day that there are three layers of bodies children on the bottom then old people than the younger ones. It takes several days for the entirety of this horrible thing to be fully understood just how many people died and how horribly they did. But that first morning with the fog in the soldiers coming in and tripping over bodies and screaming, that's a a mental image that I I have trouble forgetting, I keep thinking that Jim Jones asked parents to take their lives of their children. Give Jim cyanide. The way Jones explained it. If you don't take your children with you to what he called the other side stepping over. What will happen is the soldiers will come in and capture them, and then they will take them back to America where these children will be subjected to terrible things, and they'll be brought up to be racists. Or if they're black. They'll be brought up basically to be slaves and subhuman that the kindest thing to do. And he says this on the take the kindest thing we can do for our children, and our old people his to take them with us and spare them from what's coming. And so he even wants the children to go first. And that we need to let the parents who want to go with their children do that. Because that would be a compassionate thing to do. And the parents who do this who cooperate they truly believe because of essentially been brainwashed by Jim Jones for so many years that this is the only way to save their children. Remember that this is something that happens by degrees. It wasn't something. That was just dropped on them. If that terrible moment Jones had been preaching for years that the time may come when we have to spare all our defenseless members and be brave enough to do this for them. It's just horrible. It seems beyond belief. But again, we have to remember the times, and we have to remember that Jones gain this power incrementally. It wasn't just overnight. So you've been kind of living in the mind of Jim Jones for years as you researched this, and so when you look around you now living in the present, do you see any echoes of Jim Jones, the things I've learned writing this book scare the hell out of me in terms of today's America. And as social media continues to expand more and more people are getting unfiltered information that they can believe or not to believe and we're entering time in in our history. I think we're a lot of people think the truth doesn't matter because the truth is always going to be just what's convenient for them to believe the facts don't matter anymore. Leadership is is less based on some sort of comprehensive plan to bring everyone together. But instead people want to gain control on a gain power in office by splitting up the country and having just enough margin on their side to get sufficient votes to win and once people are in power instead of using it, positively it's used instead to try to emphasize their ties with their followers and to show disdain. And even in some cases outright tried to destroy anybody who disagrees with them. Jim Jones the pit is the worst that can happen when we let one person dictate what we hear what we believe that anybody opposed to him must be opposed to us. This is what we're becoming. We can only change that. If we learn from the past and try to apply today. So yes, the things I've learned writing this book scare the hell out of me. Thank you so much for coming back to fresh air. It's always a pleasure. Thank you. Jeff Guinn speaking with Terry gross recorded last year, his book the road to Jonestown is out in paperback Sunday marks forty years since the Jonestown massacre. Coming up, David being Cooley reviews. The new AMC series the little drummer girl. This is fresh air. This is fresh air beginning Monday AMC presents a new mini series called the little drummer girl based on the spy novel by John Le Carre it's being shown on consecutive nights into our blocks. Our TV critic David in Cooley heartily approves of the miniseries and it scheduling AMC's decision to show its new six hour miniseries. The little drummer girl over three consecutive nights is a smart strategy. This spy story based on the bestselling novel by John Loughrey begins at such a deliberate pace that it takes almost two hours before the central storyline. The actual spy mission is set in motion had the miniseries been televised in one hour, installments viewers might have gotten restless and given up. But by the end of the first two hour block anyone who stays with it. And I highly recommend you do we'll be rewarded with one of the year's most tense. And well acted TV thrillers. The year is nineteen Seventy-nine. The setting initially is London Florence pew from the recent drama Lady Macbeth plays Charlie an actress in one of the city's small struggling theatrical. Troupes a charismatic mystery man played by Alexander Skarsgard of big little lies and true. Blood attends a couple of performances of one production, then offers to fly the troop degrees to perform in some sort of special benefit. He's really interested in only one person, the actress, Charlie and it's because his boss. A man named Kurtz has a special role for her to play Kurtz, played by Michael Shannon of the shape of water and boardwalk empire. Thanks, Charlie has the perfect acting skills and real life background to successfully infiltrate a Palestinian terrorist cell. That's been conducting a series of bombings without here attack your politics. Charlie fact, we love your. Crazy politics every paradox. Acted spurt of anger or compassion. We believe a bigger you. That you have to waste you believe that is being wasted. And if you decide to collaborate with us on this performance, I swear to God. Wasted. Again, Kurtz, who's running this operation for the Israelis offers her the literal role of a lifetime playing a version of herself who because of her background appearance and talent is the perfect bait to be noticed and recruited by the terrorists. In question, though. There will be no cut. Low cut constant improvisation. I've.

Helping drivers find deliver install this is fresh air. And if you're just joining us, my guest is Jeff Guinn, the author of the new book the road to Jonestown Jim Jones and peoples temple. And it's about the cult leader Jim Jones who claim to be God and claim to be, you know, the Lenin reincarnated develop this large cult following lead about a thousand followers to the jungle of Jonah where they built their own settlement and had ended. With him, basically, forcing them to drink cyanide. Laced fruit punch and commit suicide because he knew his number was up, and he was taken everyone down with him. You said that you spoke to people who actually were on the site this mass suicide after it happened. What did they find? The guy in east troops that came in the next morning thought they were going to be facing armed revolutionaries. They guessed there might be a hundred or more Jonestown men armed with rifles waiting for them. So they're coming through the jungle cautiously it's the hot season in Guyana. There's been a torrential downpour the day before in steams coming up from the floor of the jungles almost like fog. And so they're coming into Jonestown in the perimeter expect to be attacked any minute. They've got their guns up and ready, the fog the steam is in front of making hardly see and all of a sudden they start to stumble. And they think that maybe these revolutionaries place logs on the ground trip them up. And now they're gonna start shooting from ambush, and then a couple of the soldiers look down, and they can see through the fog and they start screaming because their bodies everywhere almost more than thinking count. And they're. Are so horrified. The bugs have already been at these bodies, the the animals the night creatures as the sun comes up deterioration starts setting in the the stench is awful. They originally think maybe four hundred people died where the other six hundred or so they don't realize for another day that there are three layers of bodies children on the bottom then old people than the younger ones. It takes several days for the entirety of this horrible thing to be fully understood just how many people died and how horribly they did. But that first morning with the fog in the soldiers coming in and tripping over bodies and screening that's a mental image that I I have trouble forgetting, I keep thinking that Jim Jones asked parents to take their lives of their children. Give Jim cyanide. The way Jones explained it. If you don't take your children with you to what he called the other side stepping over. What will happen is the soldiers will come in and capture them, and then they will take them back to America where these children will be subjected to terrible things, and they'll be brought up to be racists, or if they're black. They'll be brought up basically to be slaves and subhuman that the kindest thing to do. And he says this on the tape the kindest thing we can do for our children and our old people. Is to take them with us and spare them from what's coming? And so he even wants the children to go. I in that we need to let the parents who want to go with their children do that. Because that would be the compassionate thing to do. And the parents who do this who cooperate they truly believe because of essentially been brainwashed by Jim Jones for so many years that this is the only way to save their children. Remember that this is something that happens by degrees. It wasn't something. That was just dropped on them. If that terrible moment Jones had been preaching for years that the time may come when we have to spare all our defenseless members and be brave enough to do this for them. It's just horrible. It seems beyond belief. But again, we have to remember the times, and we have to remember the Jones gain this power incrementally. It wasn't just overnight. So you've been kind of living in the mind of Jim Jones for years as you researched this, and so when you look around you now living in the present, do you see any echoes of Jim Jones, the things I've learned writing this book scare the hell out of me in terms of today's America. And as social media continues to expand more and more people are getting unfiltered information that they can believe or not to believe and we're entering a time in in our history. I think we're a lot of people think the truth doesn't matter because the truth is always going to be just what's convenient for them to believe the facts don't matter anymore. Leadership is is less based on some sort of comprehensive plan to bring everyone together. But instead people want to gain control on a gain power in office by splitting up the country and having just enough margin on their side to get sufficient votes to win and once people are in power instead of using it, positively it's used instead to try to emphasize their ties with their followers and to show disdain. And even in some cases outright tried to destroy anybody who disagrees with them. Jim Jones appeared demise is the worst that can happen. When we let one person dictate what we hear what we believe that anybody opposed to him must be opposed us. This is what we're becoming. We can only change that. If we learn from the past and try to apply to today. So yes, the things of learned reading this book scare the hell out of me. Thank you so much for coming back to fresh air. It's always a pleasure. Thank you. Jeff Guinn speaking with Terry gross recorded last year, his book the road to Jonestown is out in paperback Sunday marks forty years since the Jonestown massacre. Coming up, David being Cooley reviews. The new AMC series the little drummer girl. This is fresh air. This is fresh air beginning Monday AMC presents a new mini series called the little drummer girl based on the spy novel by John Lee, Carre it's being shown on consecutive nights into our blocks. Our TV critic, David and Cooley heartily approves of the mini series, and it scheduling AMC's decision to show its new six hour miniseries. The little drummer girl over three consecutive nights is a smart strategy. This spy story based on the bestselling novel by John Loughrey begins at such a deliberate pace that it takes almost two hours before the central storyline. The actual spy mission is set in motion had the mini series been televised in one hour, installments viewers might have gotten restless and given up. But by the end of the first two hour block anyone who stays with it. And I highly recommend you do we'll be rewarded with one of the year's most tents and well. Acted TV thrillers. The year is nineteen Seventy-nine. The setting initially is London Florence pew from the recent drama Lady Macbeth plays Charlie an actress in one of the city's small struggling theatrical. Troupes a charismatic mystery man play by Alexander Skarsgard of big little lies and true. Blood attends a couple of performances of one production, then offers to fly the troop degrees to perform in some sort of special benefit. He's really interested in only one person, the actress, Charlie and it's because his boss. A man named Kurtz has a special role for her to play Kurtz. Played by Michael, Shannon of the shape of water and boardwalk empire thinks Charlie has the perfect acting skills and real life background to successfully infiltrate a Palestinian terrorist cell. That's been conducting a series of bombings. We're not here attack your politics, Charlie. In fact, we love your crazy. Politics. Every paradox. Spurt of anger or compassion. We believe bigger you. You have to waste you believe that is being wasted. If you decide to collaborate with us on this performance. I swear to God. Wasted. Again, Kurtz, who's running this operation for the Israelis offers her the literal role of a lifetime playing version of herself who because of her background appearance and talent is the perfect bait to be noticed and recruited by the terrorists in question. There will be no cut. Could constant improvisation. I've.
