So much is lost

So much is lost in translation via boards because there are so many questions about how a person means something they write. Sometimes what is written makes people wonder what IS the viewpoint of the person writing it, or it can signal that the person reads it one way and can only see it as that way.

When Jim is quoted as saying children are ready, willing and able to prosecute their parents I wonder if he is talking as in people of the FG parental generation that were the most egregious offenders and in particular Maria and Peter who take on the parental role in the group as "Mama" and "King Peter".

Or is he talking about firing up SGA's to prosecute their parents in general because they were ever a part of the cult? Maybe a lot is lost in clarification.

I didn't read it as the latter.
