We all need to Rehab our thinking


One place that Culturally issue that can be addressed fairly quickly



              The need to eliminate the Cycle of Welfare, by requiring all those able to work go directly into a program similar to, and modeled after the Salvation Army Adult Rehabilitation Centers, which I know a lot about,    as I spent two years in the Detroit, Mi center for my alcohol addiction,and nearly 5 years completely free of any desire of alcohol.

                    My idea of this Program "2 Chance"

                           1. The Government is already funding the folks on welfare,now it's to do it a bit differently.
                               a. Since a majority are women with children this has to be approached with more care then men's facility

                         Women with children Facility

                             a. Must live on site with children, no contact with father , (this general policy,subject to judgement of father,as a individual (drugs etc.) or if father enters a Men's Facility

A Cultural Model


        Even though the "Individual" is, Let us say "single cell" of a Kinship group,then Band group etc.The Individual is Formed by that Kinship group and Band group in the beginning. Here I believe is where the individual must remain 

The Salvation Army  Adult Rehabilitation Centers

Adult Rehabilitation Center

The Salvation Army Minneapolis Adult Rehabilitation Center is a long-term, residential rehabilitation program, providing services in the areas of alcohol and drug addiction recovery on a pay-as-you-can basis. Up to 130 men can be served at any given time, with graduation after six to 12 months.

The center is open to men throughout Minnesota and beyond and is one of 120 Salvation Army Rehabilitation Centers in the U.S. It has been operating in the Twin Cities for nearly 100 years.

Program Overview

Within a Christian atmosphere and philosophy, the center offers men the opportunity to regain their self-respect and acquire the life skills needed to take their rightful place in society.

The rehabilitation process is intensive and requires a strong commitment by the residents to the full six-month term or longer. The center is not a temporary shelter or a place to stay while seeking employment.

Our Cultural Model

"I think we often study,or view History as a "Fact, like oh,that is good to know,oh now I have another Fact in my "memory",,that will be use full, say if I wish to have something to simply tell some one as a "Fact",,like a teacher in school teachs us to remember this "Fact","it will be on the test Friday".Yet fails to teach ,how can we use that "Fact" applied to now!..We must always remember our "own individual History" not just as a Fact,but also,,as a stepping stone to "Now",,and only to be used in a Constructive guide, it is a fact of then,our own culture of sorts at a time,now it is like a Ancient ruin→"belonging to the very distant past and no longer in existence",,yet is our History to learn and Evolve(transend from)."-me

There are pessimists who hold that such a state of affairs is necessarily inherent in human nature; it is those who propound such views that are the enemies of true religion, for they imply thereby that religious teachings are utopian ideals and unsuited to afford guidance in human affairs. The study of the social patterns in certain so-called primitive cultures, however, seems to have made it sufficiently evident that such a defeatist view is wholly unwarranted. Whoever is concerned with this problem, a crucial one in the study of religion as such, is advised to read the description of the Pueblo Indians in Ruth Benedict’s book, Patterns of Culture. Under the hardest living conditions, this tribe has apparently accomplished the difficult task of delivering its people from the scourge of competitive spirit and of fostering in it a temperate, cooperative conduct of life, free of external pressure and without any curtailment of happiness.-Albert Einstein
