Education, too long a tool for over-zealous politicians to impose their worldview, has become nothing more than the means to getting a job (which probably doesn’t exist). Education needs to aim at fulfilling individual potential in a much wider fashion, and particularly to help individuals realise their ability to think critically about this complex world we live in.
The BBC have been complicit in the child abuse perpetuated by Jimmy Saville and associates in many ways. This is not to say it was official corporate policy, however, unofficially, powerful people at the top covered things up to protect their powerful friends.
Saville was a regular visitor to Haut de la Garenne – the children’s home in Jersey where it was alleged many high level people from the UK mainland including politicos and etc. used to engage in their distasteful habits of abusing kids. This was and is subject to cover up.
Hollie Greig’s case has been and is subject to cover up as soon as high level politico’s were implicated.
There is cover up and there is carelessness everywhere you look in this field.
Will you allow yourself to join the dots or do you want to be careless, remain ignorant of the true situation and thus, through your own carelessness, be a part of the problem?
Don’t bullshit yourself that these incidents are isolated – they are not.
“He who knows doesn’t say, he who says doesn’t know”. – Lao Tzu
After six years of regular blogging I have taken a long break. I didn’t have much to say. It’s not because I know it all, as the Lao Tzu quote above may imply … but because I have been somewhere in the middle … not knowing and staying quiet.
Time to get back to the mill. Probably going to post one or two posts a week .. we’ll see what happens. But I’m back blogging.
Put a garden bench in the communal garden today – the second to go in. Will post a picture soon. Sorry I haven’t posted in the last six months. I’ve been rather busy. Will tell all soon …
Assange Heads Time Magazine’s “Person Of The Year” Award – And a Call To Nobel Peace Prize Nominators.
Go there to vote for Julian Assange – in court today he was denied his freedom despite such luminaries as Ken Loach, John Pilger and Jemima Khan standing bail of £20,000 each.
Justice must be done here.
Those who are in a position to nominate candidates for the Nobel Peace Prize need to ask themselves if they want to live in a world where, as Congressman Dr Ron Paul so eloquently said, “If telling you the truth makes you a traitor we’re in big trouble”?
Assange deserves Time Magazine Award and the Nobel Peace Prize this year – the whistle blower systems he has in place will make Government around the world, corporations and others accountable to the press. Behind all the rhetoric this is the real reason Assange sits in gaol tonight.
