11. Thoughts to a Young Woman

In this age where truth is despised,
and advocating common decency
is regarded as ‘hate speech’,
my heart breaks for little children today.

Most especially, I suppose, for girls who are
– very evidently – being taught
that it is somehow a shame, or weakness,
to want to behave or dress … like a Lady.

I remember a time when women
were not ashamed to be feminine;

nor felt the need to impersonate
crude, obnoxious, and vulgar men.

There is a reason why Irish writer Bram Stoker


gave Dracula the quality of having no reflection
in a mirror:

There are multitudes, in this world,
who are so evil – so narcissistic –
that they do not see anything wrong
when they are confronted with themselves
– their conduct and conversation –
in the Mirror of Conscience.

They see nothing.

Nothing at all.

They prey upon people …
in order to ‘feed’ their own ego.

They live in the darkness …
and fear the light of morality shining upon them.

They suck the life from people …
and move on to the next victim.

PROFANITY: Revealing Your Depravity to the World

Multitudes use the “power” of the Internet,
who have no business being On the Internet.

Had they the ‘mirror’ of a conscience,
they would writhe in shame
at the public example that they present of themselves.

And – if they had but the wit (or conscience),
would remove every trace of themselves
from public display.

Humility is gone.

And with it, those qualities – discernment, discretion,
self control – which once distinguished a human being
from a vicious savage.

The Vicious

The last time I had made an effort to give the Internet
“a fair chance”, I happened across a BBC documentary video
on YouTube – and invariably noticed the comment
that was visible immediately beneath.

In presenting this particular video on YouTube,
a mother had posted a medical comment
pertaining to her daughter who had Down’s Syndrome.

One reply ( the comment that I noticed )
was from an American viewer

who told this caring woman
that special needs children were a ‘drain’ on society

… and that she should … “have put your retard down”.

I could not take it in.

I remember actually beginning to shake.

Now ( given the lifestyle that I have led
for the past thirty years ) I wish that I
had never encountered the Internet at all.

You see, I had been quite content to be
ignorant about the state of humanity in the world today.

And – I have to confess, I wish that I had never
been made aware of its depravity –
by giving the Internet ‘a fair chance’.

For some vicious, evil, malignant creature
to tell a woman – the loving mother of a disabled little girl –
that she should have “put your retard down”

… is something that I am just not able to bear.

Should anyone genuinely want to know WHY
a very few people like me, want nothing to do
with the world and its ways — This is the reason.

The comments featured throughout YouTube
are more than sufficient to give the moral temperature
of modern humanity – but this … this …
was infinitely beneath disgusting.

I do not know from where that level of sadistic,
depraved malice comes ( if not from the pit of hell itself )

… but I have certainly noticed an abundance of it
on the Internet.

As I do not want things like this lodged in my memory,
I do not browse the Internet.

And each time I tell myself that it cannot really
be as bad as I remember, I try again –

And find out that … It is.

The Internet has left me bewildered
to realise the hatred that people have
for ANYTHING that represents or requires

… empathy, self control, or moral discernment.

21st Century “Humanity”

Society does not find it shocking
for a 16-year old to copulate like an animal:

But the 19 year old who remains a virgin is … weird.

For a teenage girl to expose breasts, thigh, and midriff,
is “fashionable” …

But the girl who dresses modestly is a “prude”.

And certainly, the whole modern world … KNOWS
( don’t they ?) … that, If a girl or woman is quiet,
ladylike; and consistently seen to be wearing a dress
… she is … “in a religious cult”.

So degraded has the modern mind-set become that,
if a teenager can NOT recite the filthy profanity
or sexually obscene lyrics of the latest “pop” song;

if they read a book, rather than
waste their brains on computer games;

or are raised with family values
and standards of moral restraint,

they are deemed to be “brainwashed” —
“victims” of ‘child abuse’ …
having been denied the “freedom”
to experience modern culture.

“Culture?”

CULTURE ?

A society that is characterised by

greed,
hedonism,
self-centred ambition,
obscene commercialism,
absence of self discipline,
filthy language,
the cinematic glorification of violence, vengeance,
torture and sexual promiscuity as ‘entertainment’ …

… THIS … is … “Culture” ?

This is Moral Degradation – and yet,
because it is the lifestyle of the Majority,
those who exercise self-discipline,
modesty in dress, and moral conduct

… are viewed as being “repressed” –
or even “abused”.

Parents allow their teens to roam the streets
at all hours; or go “clubbing” amidst the depravity
of deafening noise, promiscuous immorality;
and an inherent liquor- and drug-culture …

but think it AB-normal for a teen to attend
a church youth group and be home by ten,
out of respect for their parents’ home,
and efforts made to raise them
to be responsible adults.

As a teenager in the 1970’s,
I was never out past ten o’clock.

Never needed to be.
Never wanted to be.

In excusing the depravity of the 21st century, people exclaim:

“Oh, but, remember when YOU were a teen!”

I do.

Thoughts to a Young Woman

In my own life, I have spent over 50 years
proving the truth of the proverb that,

“A righteous man regardeth the life of his beast”

and have mentioned to more than a few young women
the fact that they would save themselves a lifetime
of misery and grievous disappointment,

if they would but take the time to look at the way
a ‘boyfriend’ treats the animals
that are dependent upon his care.

Before you commit yourself to any man, woman,
“friend”, or potential business partner,
give them plenty of opportunity … to talk.

And LISTEN to them.

Listen to how they talk about people who are moral,
quiet, and benevolent;
about their own parents;
about their pets, or the livestock on their family farm

… Listen.

And discern the nature of the “tree”

from the “fruit” that it bears.

Where an animal is involved … Look.
Open your eyes.
Observe.
Think about what you see.

Look at the family dog –
is it kept on a chain? a rope?
confined to a doghouse that is damp,
without clean bedding;
or just plain filthy?

Is it thrown into the back of a pickup truck to
– having no grip whatsoever – use balance, if possible,
in order to prevent itself from being thrown about,
or even thrown over the side?

Does the dog noticeably cringe, quiver,
or drop its head when the ‘owner’ approaches;
startle – ‘snap to attention’ – instantly,
whenever he comes near?

One is resigned to a potential beating.

The other agitates to avoid one.

One is timid, defeated.

The other has some will to live still remaining.

People lie.

A dog will not.

To every teenage girl, I would say simply that:

Any man who does not show compassion
for an animal in their care …

… will NEVER show genuine compassion FOR YOU
– no matter how self-deluded you may wish to be.

Many a young woman has said of a savage brute:

“I will change him”.

An illustration:

I will stand on the floor beside a table.
You climb up, and stand upon the table.

Now …

Lift me up to where you are.

Will you succeed?

Perhaps.

But it is most unlikely.

Discerning Danger: The Psychopath

Television – for the past 30 years –
has portrayed the psychopath perfectly:

the only problem is, that in illustrating The Psychopath,
television has presented them as being ‘normal’ or
‘everyday’ people.

No self-restraint.
No objective morality.
No effort to dress, speak, or behave out of respect
to those around them.

Neither discretion or discernment.
No higher purpose in life that to be entertained.
Existing to ‘get’ what they can, with the least amount of work possible.

Their whole existence is about … Me”.

They are so saturated in conceit
that they exalt themselves as an ‘expert’
on the basis of having read a book;
gleaned some minimal experience;
or (heaven help us) watched a video.

They do “good works” or give to some charity
in order to further their own public image;

manipulate those who are trusting or gullible.

They beg charity, plead poverty;
copy and take credit for what others have done,
and prosper off the work or contributions of others.

They have contempt for those who are moral or honest,
and despise the attempts of others
to help or correct themselves.

When ‘caught’ or exposed, the Psychopath always
has a ready excuse: ‘medication’ … ‘mummy didn’t hug me’
… poor neighbourhood … bullying or abuse as a child.

Men and women survive concentration camps,
brutality, and genuine poverty, yet NEVER
commit anything approaching the conscienceless acts
of these vicious, egomaniacal creatures.

They will never say “I am Sorry” …

because it is always the other person’s fault.

For the narcissist, it is always about “Me”.

They have the ability to end a personal relationship in an instant;
Immediately desire revenge if they are withstood or exposed.

They are without conscience:
no remorse, no regret, and certainly
– offer no reparation for the misery they have caused.

They are like the modern Police:

Never Apologise,
Never Explain.

The psychopath gratifies Self in all things.
He will use ANYONE he can find to further his own ends
and serve his own lusts.

And that includes you.

His god – his object of worship – is himself.

Challenge a psychopath in any way,
and they will be rid of you in an instant
– without a shred of guilt or remorse.

You will not make them see … ‘reason’.

They have none.

Everything is subservient to Them …
their Ambition … their Self image.

Evil men delight to degrade and pervert
anything that is Moral.

And that includes you – if you are.

It is a dreadful but true observation that

“… he that departeth from evil
maketh himself a prey.”

Modern multitudes of the 21st century
have no conscience whatsoever about defaming
or destroying anyone who excels them.

“Give me six words” said Richelieu,
“written by the most honourable of men,
and I will find excuse in them
to hang him.”

Beware of anyone who is constantly
prating on about themselves or their endeavours.

This world is full of them.

They are brutal, vicious; loud, and aggressive
… and call it “strength”.

A Self Test

If you cannot find it an easy thing to say

“I’m sorry” to those you have wronged;
“I love you” to parents and elders; or,
“I need your help” when a discernibly capable teacher
is before you,

then perhaps, these thoughts are especially for you ?

I would not like to be a moral, conscientious, young man
or woman starting out in life today,
because there IS No moral centre in the world today.

Young woman,

Be a Lady, rather than an object;
Be a Lady, rather than a pathetic imitation of a ‘macho’ savage.

IF you have a tender heart
and a discerning mind,
they will be the greatest possessions
that you will Ever own.

Never allow them to be taken away from you.
