I am not sure if the Maria question is a question of she saying NO to Berg or Peter or them saying no to her. I think the woman is just power drunk and I do not see her as a 'victim' in any way shape or form. Using that word for her trivialized the disempowerment of so many who REALLY did not have any kind of power (of decision, financial, etc etc. all of which she has had for a long time)

If you read Ricky's account of LWG and the Mene story you will have enough details to throw up. It moved me to tears, once again, having to look at that 'abomination of desolation' -- it is the expression that seems to fit it best.
It is not just that things are JUST as they seemed to lurk beneath the surface and throught what they passed on to us when we were in, they are even worse than the worst we could imagine.

I had to think long and hard this morning after reading that, and I may write a reaction on this site, since I am not sure I can do it overthere. I say I may because some of this stuff is so harsh and when you're still dealing with the damage of some of that madness it may be too difficult to write about it.
