WHAT SHALL WE TELL THE CHILDREN?

Used to be that the world had a standard definition for most actions, philosophies and concepts based more             or less on the truth. But today, confusion reigns and “truth has fallen in the streets”.

Perhaps it is because of the advent of digitally inspired virtual reality, laced with generous doses of Hollywood-inspired “reality TV” (which is totally unreal), that politicians have dared to come up with definitions “on-the-fly” which at best are self-serving and at worst – immoral lies.

When the British Empire and its European and American cohorts colonized many parts of the world, it was “for the greater good of the heathens and their progress”. When others in the 20th century colonized their neighbors, eg China and Tibet, the Chinese are vilified as hegemonists. Why doesn’t anyone talk about the Indian absorption of Sikkim, and the many displaced people of Nepali origin in places like Sikkim today?

Enthusiastic “saviors of freedom” are quick to decry the ‘detention without trial’ law of countries like Singapore and others who don’t qualify as their flavor of the month nations. But “Big Brothers” like USA can cavalierly carry out the same concept under a worse practice called “rendition”. Strictly translated, the word “rendition” means A performance or interpretation, especially of a dramatic role or piece of music. Or A visual representation or reproduction”. So what was the US interpreting by whisking detainees off to foreign destinations without trial, some for many years? Is this illegal or illegally legal?

When rioters crowd the streets of USA or Europe against unpopular policies or legislation, like human rights and Vietnam War clashes in the past, the police were busily clubbing and driving rioters back.

But in other “unfavored nations” when rioters take to the streets with demonstrations bordering on violence and these nations’ army or police come out to restore order, then it becomes pogrom – like activities, to be stopped. The “saviors” then authorized themselves the right to interfere, ‘to protect the man in the street in these nations”. Who’s protecting the governments?

Used to be that when a nation sends bombs into another country, it was called a “declaration of war”. But the invasion of Iraq was nobly cloaked as a “pre-emptive strike”. And now, in the second decade of the 21st century, we have invented an even more ingenious definition called “the no-fly zone” ala Libya. Whilst the Libyan government is unable to fly, the Allies are busily bombing their installations and compounds, at the same time declaring hypocritically that they mustn’t kill the Gadaffis in case they then become martyrs.

When we, as employees, miss our budgets or lose money for the company, we got fired and are branded as “losers”. But the very bankers who caused a major global financial collapse and the wreck and ruin of thousands all over the world, are now heroes who get handsomely rewarded by self-declared bonuses. Losers become winners, so the winners must now be losers!

A marriage used to be between a man and a woman. Now, in certain countries, it has been re-defined as “between 2 consenting adults above 16 years”. A mother need not be a woman nor a father a man! In case you didn’t get the drift, schools in some European countries are not allowed to teach the kids that a family is made up of father, mother and kids. You are free to have 2 daddies or 2 mommies. Hollywood jumps in to portray homosexual couplings in graphic detail in Oscar nominated movies like ” The kids are alright”.

Rent-a-home has given way to rent-a-womb. If I felt like it, I don’t need to go through nine ghastly months of pregnancy, I simply rent-a-womb. Or I can get designer genes and have a baby without the inconvenience of having a spouse or partner.

Welcome to Utopia!

When many of us tend to be to be able to be successful, it’s intending to be able to require a sustained effort associated with mothers and fathers, daughters plus sons, law enforcement as well as responsible gun owners, Obama said, organizing, speaking right up, calling upon the members involving Congress while lots of instances the way it takes, standing up and also saying, ‘Enough’ for behalf regarding just about all the kids.The White House official said LaPierre’s remarks were not confidence-inspiring with conditions of what exactly constructive role they’ll participate in. Your official, who requested anonymity to be able to speak frankly, was unaware of almost any White House contact using the gun rights group through the actual past week.

  3. My mother, at age ninety, didn’t look a day over 70 — no, really, she had beautiful facial skin and aged very slowly. Her secret, I believe, was avoiding the sun as much as possible, and she moisturized religiously — with Ponds and Vaseline!
