Victims Of Bad Government #1 Lorna Hodgkinson

Harry Houdini was born on March 24, 1874.

Lorna Hodgkinson died on the 24th March, 1951. She was a teacher of intellectually disabled girls and the first woman to earn a doctor of education degree from Harvard University. (She was given paid leave in 1920 to study at Harvard and completed a Masters degree in 1921 and a PhD in 1922.)

Later on, back in Australia, she spoke up critically to a Royal Commission on Lunacy Law and Administration about mismanagement in care for the intellectually disabled children. The government minister, Albert Bruntnell, set up an enquiry which trashed her reputation with false allegations. She was then demoted.

She refused to accept the new position and was dismissed.

In the private sector, Hodgkinson then founded the Sunshine Institute, a live-in school for intellectually disabled kids, in the suburb of Gore Hill in Sydney.

She became a successful radio lecturer and newspaper columnist.

Harry Houdini once said of his work:

“My chief task has been to conquer fear. The public sees only the thrill of the accomplished trick; they have no conception of the tortuous preliminary self-training that was necessary to conquer fear.”

The words added to these photos are my interpretation of what these three persecuted doctors bring to the desperately needed but horribly marginalised fight for freedom.

Aussie Freedom Freedom Fighters #7 Pauline

The sophistication and complexity of our intellectual communication separates us from most other species, as far as I know.

All we mortal human beings usually seem to need to speak our truths as best we can.

That’s why freedom of speech is so important to us.

That freedom includes both speaking and being heard.

But absolute certainties reside with God.

Godless tyrants now frequently destroy what’s best in themselves and too many innocent victims.

Women For Freedom # 10 Mel

Registered Nurse Mel is one of Melbourne’s many beautiful dinki-di Australian freedom fighters.

On the 112th anniversary of the death of Florence Nightingale, Mel speaks up loud and clear for truth and freedom in health care.

Against bureaucratic political tyranny which trashes the relationships of trust which Florence Nightingale insisted are crucial to health care.

God bless freedom, truth and Mel.
