It will probably come as no surprise to you to discover that Dr Sigmund Freud did make a signal mistake.

Some of his patients did complain to him of child sexual abuse. At first he believed them, but when he tried to talk about it publicly, he met such virulent opposition, he made the very great and signal mistake of changing his mind.

So rather than revealing child sexual abuse to the world and ending his career, he said that child sexual abuse was childhood fantasy.

Freud did make a terrible mistake but just consider, Australia had to wait until we elected an atheist as Prime Minister before we could get a National Royal Commission into Institutional Child Abuse. And also consider that the United States of America will never elect an atheist as President and so America will never have a National Judicial Enquiry into Institututional Child Abuse.

Dr Sigmund Freud did make a terrible mistake and betrayed the trust of children, and the United States of America is continuing to make the same mistake to betray the trust of children.
