SORT BY Relevancy
This Thursday on Fieldstone Common we will speak author Juliet Haines Mofford about her book The Devil Made Me Do It! Crime and Punishment in Early New England.
Whether it was Sabbath-breaking, blasphemy, or public drunkenness, colonial laws were strict and frequently broken, and those who broke them could expect swift punishment. Laws were designed to reflect Puritan ideas of ensuring God’s blessings upon the community, as well as to tightly maintain order in ways that would benefit the entire colony. Each neighbor had a role in preserving family values and keeping the community safe from “railing scolds,” vagabonds, malefactors, and malefic witches.
Some of the ways that seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century New England communities dealt with murder and mayhem seem brutal to modern sensibilities. Today, Joan Andrews would not be forced to wear a T for theft upon her bodice for placing stones in the firkin of butter she sold a client. And Lydea Abbot would certainly not be made to suffer in the stocks for “uttering ten profain curses.”
Drawing from early court dockets, diaries, sermons, gaolers’ records, and other primary sources, the chapters in this book investigate crimes like these and illuminate the social and political causes behind legal cases from a time when accused felons often pleaded in their own defense: “The Devil made me do it!”
Juliet Haines Mofford is a historian and museum educator based in Maine. Two of her eleven books received national awards . Her feature articles have appeared in the Boston Globe and many other publications.

Tonight's special guest is Juliet Cameron from Northern California, a survivor of physical, sexual and emotional abuse that began in infancy, and author of new book “Falling Upward,” an intense look into Juliet's life journey. The survivor of physical, sexual and emotional abuse that began in infancy, her first sixteen years of life brought increased severity at the hands of an alcoholic and drug addicted stepfather and a mother with psychosis. At the age of eleven, Juliet left home and was placed in foster care. She was returned to her mother through an incompetent justice system only to be placed in foster care again several years later. Throughout her teen years and into her adulthood she dealt with severe PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder) and major depression. Both resulted in her own battle with alcohol and drug addiction. After fifteen years of therapy, medication and intermittent hospitalization without success, Juliet discovered total recovery not from therapy or western medicine but from ancient wisdom which she currently teaches at healing workshops. Her book "Falling Upward" tells the tale of Juliet's life and the journey she took to break free from the stress and trauma. She hopes is will be an inspiration to all who have suffered abuse in some form or another.

Michael Haines - I began a website called ACDirect.com back in 2001 that has become the oldest and most heavily visited e-commerce website in the air conditioning and heating industry. I've learned the in's and out's of the web on my own dime, not someone else's.

I've been featured in trade magazines and have been told I possess an insightful way of communicating with different personalities.

Bob Calvert, host of “Talking With Heroes” on Blogtalk Radio, will be my guest this week. Bob has made numerous trips to Iraq and Afghanistan where he talks with and brings hope to the troops serving in our military. Did you know TBI (traumatic brain injury) is the signature injury of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars? Estimates state that more than 11,000 troops are affected with brain injury because of explosions from IEDs (improvised explosive devices), and many more troops experience concussions from blasts. Often there are no obvious effects of brain injury until much later.
So what happens to troops in the field? How can a commanding officer identify a troop who has a concussion? What happens to troops when they come home with brain injuries? Bob and I will talk about how his show helps troops in the field and about the problems they face when they return home. Caregiver, Jeannette Davidson-Mayer and brain injury survivor, Juliet Madsen will join Bob and me.
Every TBI survivor and caregiver has encountered a fork in the road that has diverted his or her life-plan. A car accident, a fall from the roof, doing one more chin-up, an IED blast, or a door literally slamming one in the face are just some causes of traumatic brain injury. College, walking down the aisle in the perfect dress, or the coveted job quickly slips from reality as dreams turn to struggle. These unexpected life-happenings that divert one from his or her chosen path in life can be devastating.
But as Yogi Berra once said, “If you come to a fork in the road, take it.” Life is all about choices!

The Incompatibility of Happiness and Truth
Brave New World is full of characters who do everything they can to avoid facing the truth about their own situations. The almost universal use of the drug soma is probably the most pervasive example of such willful self-delusion. Soma clouds the realities of the present and replaces them with happy hallucinations, and is thus a tool for promoting social stability. But even Shakespeare can be used to avoid facing the truth, as John demonstrates by his insistence on viewing Lenina through the lens of Shakespeare’s world, first as a Juliet and later as an “impudent strumpet.” According to Mustapha Mond, the World State prioritizes happiness at the expense of truth by design: he believes that people are better off with happiness than with truth. / http://www.sparknotes.com/lit/bravenew/themes.html /
