The Injustice of Rape
In 2022, the conviction rate for rape in the UK is most likely less than 1%.
UK justice makes Lady Justice blind and Women Victims mute. Whilst the rapist causes immediate distress, failed justice extends and magnifies the suffering for every day of its failure.
The Fallacy of Oppression
We are a social species. We have developed evolutionary advantage from collaborating with each other. This is the basis of our astounding economic and technological advance. When we oppress parts of society, we compromise our advantage, undermining our security and quality of life..
Damaging Teachers ...
The UK government employs teachers. The face it shows to the general public is very different from its behaviours behind closed doors. The government is a monopoly employer. It abuses teachers. Teachers are stressed, disempowered and asked to do social work for which they are given inadequate time or training. If anything goes wrong, the teacher is blamed, the government refuses to accept any responsibilty. When we damage the mental health our teachers, it is impossible that is not reflected in the way students are taught. Damaging teachers damages students. And it has a socially destructive impact throughout the rest of the students lives.
Cut Down Poverty
There is a link between the level of shame we put on people and their level of poverty. There is an antidote to shame - community, making people feel welcome. We can help people out of shame by giving them a helping hand in their hour of need. If we want to address poverty, we have to address the shame we heap on others.
The Fabric of Love
There are three types of romantic love. Impassioned love is powerful and energetic. It births the social fabric from which long-term relationships develop. The wild radiation of energy can not last more than a handful of years. The second is Asymetric, where one person is more committed than the other. It is destined for misery and failure and helps to explain the high divorse rates. Social fabric can not be woven alone any more than one hand alone can clap. The goal of love is Mutual Bonding. The fabric factory allows the couple to weave an emotional wrapper that protects and cements their future together through mutual support and respect. How are the threads woven? It's quite natural if we remember how.
The Rising Time of MEvolution
The Rising Tide of MEvolution represents the impact of our excessive focus on Me and the disastrous effect is having on the outcomes of the evolution we have engineered that determine our future destiny. It is not too late for us to redirect our cultures to remove the excessively self-interested cancers that eat away at our metaphorical hearts and lungs.
Social Media's Selective Vision
When we put our best face forward to our social media feeds, we create an unattainable standard for us to maintain and for our friends to reach. It eats away at the trust and self-belief that underpins every good relationship. What we choose to post may not be quite so social after all.
What is missing in our lives that we idolise so readily this Unsocial Media?
Addressing the despair of someone who is homeless, in poverty or suffering helps to ease their suffering.
Discovering and addressing the cause of despair re-opens the door to life.
Reality in the Mirror
If you belive only what you see, you are painfully out of touch with reality.
Look outside the mirror if you want to see who 's shaping your life.
Barriers Create Dependency
The social barriers we create that limit people's contribution to society impoverish society by limiting the contribution to society that they are able to make.
And that creates the very dependency we use to justify the barriers we have created.
