I will go straight into it, because subtlety and pussy-footing does nothing.
Every week , in UK alone, a child dies from cruelty and abuse. I can bet my life on the fact that the figures are even more grim elsewhere in the so-called less-developed world.
The mankind is a nasty piece of work overall. We celebrate wildebeest crossing hundreds of miles to find a waterhole, but we keep our own 'waterholes' under walls, laws and armed border patrol, against the desperate people selling everything and risking everything just to get a shot at decent life away from famine, poverty, war. We go to court for the rights of chickens to be treated humanely, but we take all the rights away form another human being based solely on their skin colour, creed, sexual orientation and a passport. A police dog dies locked in a car on a hot day and the whole country is in uproar, and over 300 desperate people, many children and pregnant women, drown just a mile away from the coast of the 'Free World', or almost a hundred died of thirst in wretched agony in a broken convoy crossing Sahara, and the angry middle classes bleat how they shouldn't be coming here in the first place - more guns, more barbed wire and more armed border patrol.
There are kids and women trafficked to the West that are worked worse than cattle and moved from brothel to brothel, some younger than 10, with no voice, no rights, and no-one to call for help, because they're not even supposed to be here.
Every iPad we buy, every big screen telly, every car, every punnet of strawberries on our supermarket shelves coming out of season from the other side of the world gets returned back to the part of the world we bought or stole the raw ingredients cheap - the world we cocoon and sanitize ourselves from - it gets returned to them many-fold as a drought, miles of parched land nothing can grow on anymore, typhoon, flooding and utter devastation, death and human misery.
None of our business, right? It's not us, it's them, so who cares, right?
There are huge swathes of the world we all live in where a young girl has statistically more chance to get abused, molested, sexually assaulted, starved and killed, than to be taught to read and write. 'Yeah , but that's 'coz they are poor and uncivilized, ' I hear some people say, 'and they still believe in demons and silly stuff, and that's just the way their culture is. Not like us. We're way better.'
And in our 'developed', supposedly civilized, secular society?
Here's the journal by a very dear friend DarwinsMishap
I'm reposting here.
Please take a moment to read it, and think about it.
Do think about it. That's a start.
REPOSTED from DarwinsMishap
There was something I came across that I wanted to post about. I know people have their opinions, and each person has the right to them. However, the very fact that not only this book exists, but children are dying in direct result in what's in it frankly has me beyond Pissed Off.
I don't have the time, nor the calm of mind to write too much, but I AM posting the links.
Ban this book.
Make sure people are aware: hiding behind religion as the basis on teaching others to beat, assault, and ultimately abuse your children is not only cowardly but reasons to have the authors jailed for a very, very, long time. Or, at least, that is how I see it.
Here are the links before I end up chewing on someone's eyeball. Yes, I'm that enraged.www.examiner.com/article/anoth…www.change.org/petitions/amazo…musemama.blogspot.com/2010/02/…ticklemebrahms.blogspot.com/20…
How about some "instructions" right out of the b*stard's mouth-sort to speak??nogreaterjoy.org/articles/ques…
I would really enjoy rolling about in those two's vitae right about now, play "string the bean" with their intestines.
Yes. Enraged about covers it.
Do think about it.
All of it.
