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 Personal Depravity to the World
There are Multitudes using the “power” of the Internet,
who have no business being … On … the Internet.
Many – had they the ‘mirror’ of a conscience,
would writhe in shame at the example
that they present of themselves to the world.
One hopes that, had they but the wit (or conscience),
most would remove every trace of themselves
from public display.
Humility – Modesty; the capacity to feel ashamed –
is a characteristic that seems all but extinct.
And with it, those qualities – discernment, discretion,
self control – which once distinguished a human being
from a vicious savage.
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 child, who had autism.
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.
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’.
The comments featured throughout YouTube
are more than sufficient to give the moral temperature
of modern humanity,
but for some vicious, evil, malignant creature
to tell the loving mother of a disabled child
that she should have “put your retard down”
… is perversion that I am just not able to bear.
I do not know from where that level of sadistic,
depraved malice comes – 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 now have
for ANYTHING that represents or requires
self control, or
21st Century “Humanity”
Society does not find it shocking
for a 15-year old to copulate like a rodent;
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,
lady-like; and consistently seen to be
wearing a dress … she is … “in a religious cult”.
So perverse 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.
A society that is characterised by
absence of self discipline,
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.
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!”
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.
And discern the nature of the “tree”
by the “fruit” that it bears.
Where an animal is involved … Look.
Open your eyes.
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.
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”.
Will you? 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?
But it is most unlikely.
Discerning Danger: The Psychopath
Television – for the past 30 years –
has portrayed the psychopath to perfection:
the only problem is, that in illustrating The Psychopath,
television has presented them as being ‘normal’ or
No objective morality.
No efforts to dress, speak, or behave out of respect
to those around them.
Neither discretion or discernment.
No higher purpose in life than to be entertained.
Existing to ‘get’ (and take) whatever they can –
with the least amount of work possible.
Their whole existence is about … ME”.
The Internet is saturated with the conceit of multitudes
who exalt themselves as an ‘expert’ on the basis of
having read a book; gleaned some minimal experience;
or (heaven help us) watched a video.
Many do “good works” or give to some charity
in order to further their own public image;
manipulate those who are trusting or gullible;
or beg charity, plead poverty;
copy and take credit for what others have done.
Always, there is Contempt
for those who are quiet, timid,
or seek to live a moral life.
And an excuse for every form of outright Evil:
‘I’m on medication’ … ‘Mummy didn’t hug me’ …
raised on a poor neighbourhood …
bullying, or abuse as a child:
men and women have survived
brutality, and (genuine) poverty,
yet NEVER commit anything approaching
the conscienceless acts of these vicious,
The modern hordes will never say “I am Sorry” …
because it is always the other person’s fault.
For the narcissist, it is always about “Me”.
They can end a personal relationship in an instant;
but immediately desire revenge
if … they … are withstood or exposed.
They are without conscience: no remorse,
no regret, and certainly, no offered reparation
for the misery they have caused:
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.”
They have no conscience whatsoever
about defaming or destroying anyone
who excels themselves.
As five minutes’ on the Internet
will clearly reveal.
“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.
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.
