" in a society where politicians will happily see brown skinned children starved and blown to pieces in the pursuit of corporate profit, why would anyone be surprised that they view the children of the poor at home as being little more than disposable toys?"
The English will protest outside Parliament about the banning of porn showing fisting and golden showers, but not a raise a peep when it comes to the people ruling them from that Parliament abusing, raping, and in some cases, murdering, vulnerable, desperate and forgotten children.
They will seethe with rage at the tabloid stories of non-white men sexually exploiting white teenage girls (whilst booking their lads away trip to the brothels of Thailand), but elicit barely a tut at news of cabals of child abusers within the highest echelons of government.
Perversion and violence from politicians and policemen is hidden behind smoke screen misdirection of salacious tales of child abusing has-been pop-stars and tv personalities, the connections of privilege, property, power and perversion being swept under the carpet as the big by-gone names are sacrificed to protect those with big, and real, power.
Evidence, long known, but until now suppressed, of our lost children being imprisoned in brothels for the powerful, under the perverse euphemism of "care" leads to no more than the shaking of heads and the turning of the page, so we can gawp at tweenie celebs papped in bikinis and titter at advertising masquerading as news.
In a civilised society, revelations of Prime Minister after Prime Minister presiding over cabals of rapist paedophiles and the murderers of children within their governments should trigger a wave of anger and horror that would shake politics and the seats of power to their foundations. The politicians and the policemen that are, often literally, in bed with each other to hide and protect their depravity, should be being hounded and vilified and dragged out into the public.
But we are not a civilised society. We are a society run by barbarians in suits. Savages with good PR, who have presided over and nurtured a culture that fetishises the sexual objectification of girls and young women, that celebrates the hedonistic worship and pursuit of impossibly youthful flesh. Which elevates abuse and greed as principles of leadership and common sense, and preaches hypocritical empty "morality" whilst deriding the combination of education and empathy from which genuine morality grows. Where "respect" means fear, and compassion is written off as gullibility and weakness.
But in a society where politicians will happily see brown skinned children starved and blown to pieces in the pursuit of corporate profit, why would anyone be surprised that they view the children of the poor at home as being little more than disposable toys?
And in an environment where "lad" culture promotes intimidation, sexual assault and rape as no more than a short cut "pick-up" technique, and little girls are taught by MTV that sex is all you have to give to the world, that your body and your face is all that is of value about you, a society where 1 in 5 women and girls are raped or sexually abused in their lifetime, 90% of them by someone they know, should we be surprised that, actually, no one really gives a shit? Not enough to actually do anything about it anyway.
But lets have a demo to protect the right to watch face-sitting in pornography. We don't want anyone to think we are a nation of prudes now, do we?
