The "uncomfortable and intrusive exams, interviews and interrogation" did not happen only in Argentina in 1993. They were incidents of the lifestyle The Family chose, proclaiming they would undergo, and preparing for, persecution as well as inviting it.

In one book about The Family, a Family woman complains that she had to get rid of some pictures of her children because of the tightening against child abuse. I can't bring myself to feel sorry for a woman who when faced with that dilemma chooses to destroy the pictures of her kids and stay in the abusive group that is paranoid because of their actual practices.
