John Bradshaw and Eric Berne (the inner child) pioneers influencing ACoA, Coda. I was born during WWll, my parents were descendants of the Irish and American Indians. I grew-up in Boston, Mass, specifically South Boston (Southie) which is just 1 mile away from down town Boston, but a different world than downtown Boston the center of academia. Southie is the original hood, due to the Irish being brutalized by the English (WASP) for 100’s of years, even after the Irish immigration to NYC, Philly and Boston, etc. they were still brutalized, because of their religion and they couldn’t find employment (Irish not need apply), thus poverty creates crime. Family of origin (Bradshaw and Berne) why many like the Irish as well as other groups e.g. Italians, African slaves, don’t know why they’re anger is due to brutalization of their descendants which is past down through the generations. The Irish are the toughest people (mentally and physically) I’ve known and I know tough, for I was a world class athlete. I’ve known affluent Irish that you don’t want to mess with, especially when they’re drinking. Here’s virtually a forgotten family of origin. Compared to other racial / ethnic groups in the USA, American Indians, Alaska Natives and Native Hawaiians, have the highest rates of alcoholism and other drug addiction, and I believe it’s due to their culture, their spirit / religion has been taken from them by so-called European Christians. As Jesus Christ said to the apostles, “what they do to the least of them, they do to me”, this is Christianity, not for the most part the European or many other brands!!
