JUSTICE, MORALITY, HUMANITY – MEEBAL EDITOR SPEAKS OUT – I’ve been called a monster, ignorant, a purveyor of anarchy and a few other names that I certainly won’t repeat.
That’s OK, for that is the whole point of meebal.com; it was designed and remains an open system of debate – we call it democracy and regardless of people’s views they should be given the opportunity to voice them.
Meebal.com is about to hit its 1st Birthday and over the year I’ve written a lot of articles; well over 1,500 to put a figure on it.
Considering meebal.com is about to turn one I thought it might be a good idea to talk about why I, and a few others, write articles to publish on meebal.com.
We all have an opinion on certain subjects and meebal.com certainly provides me with a route to express my feeling and in particular to the social issues we face in our modern and so-called enlightened society.
Most people read news articles and quickly dismiss them; regardless of how they feel. I can reveal however that those who write are damned to flash-backs of all the injustice, the lack of morality and most disturbingly how society appears to have become devoid of humanity.
There are issues that simply make me angry and I have been accused of ranting – I won’t deny it for I am not a journalist.
I’m not knocking journalists as it is their sole purpose to coldly report the news and deliver the facts without personal opinion.
It was for this very reason why I and a couple of others decided to create meebal.com, for we felt that news should be delivered with an opinion and in doing so create constructive debate from our readers.
The worst part of this job is going to sleep at night for often I lay there thinking about articles that have affected me deeply – I have no shame in admitting that there are times I cry for the lack of justice, morality and humanity in society.
As an example, yesterday meebal.com published an article on the death of Baby P and how the social system failed to protect him.
Baby P, Peter Connelly, was just 17 months old when he was murdered by his parents and one of their friends.
In his very short life he was sexually and physically abused to the point where his tiny body simply could no longer cope and therefore he slipped off his mortal coil in order to finally experience peace.
I am not a religious man, in fact I have no time for religion – it is often simply used as a tool for crimes against humanity.
However, if there is something else beyond flesh and bone I can only hope with all my heart that Baby P is finally experiencing the love he so desperately needed and rightfully deserved.
The death of Baby P is, for me at least, a devastating tribute to the lack of care we have in society but it also clearly points out that others, such as Sharon Shoesmith, will go to any lengths in order to profit from such a loss.
Yes, Sharon Shoesmith was the civil servant whose job it was as head of Children’s services, to protect Baby P.
As a result Sharon Shoesmith lost her job and you would think that she might bow her head in shame, but such is the lack of morality in society; she felt that the loss of her £130,000 a year job was unjustified and then took to dragging the Government through the courts in order to receive compensation for her incompetency.
Such is the level of justice, morality and humanity in Britain. Sharon Shoesmith was awarded over £700,000 in compensation; although Sharon Shoesmith originally sought £1.5 million.
It is clear that Sharon Shoesmith certainly has profited from the death of Baby P and society, and whilst some quarters are complaining, others appear to have just dismissed this as yet another part of daily life.
Today meebal.com published an article on the rising number of criminals reoffending and within the article we (I) suggested that maybe it was time to re-examine our indoctrination of rehabilitation over punishment.
I would, if it was entirely up to me, reinstate the death penalty. The likes of Baby P’s murderers would be given a lethal injection as I see no justice in allowing those responsible to live the remainder of their lives in pure luxury at the taxpayers’ expense.
I would also reintroduce public flogging, for this might just have the effect of reducing crime and especially crime committed by continuous reoffending.
Lastly, as I pointed out, I would make prisons an unbearable place to stay – our current notion that criminals can be rehabilitated whilst living in comfort simply is not working; we really do need to start punishing those who insist upon making our lives a misery.
One thing I have learned is that the public continues to moan about the lack of justice, morality and humanity in our society and this is despite the fact that our political indoctrination was supposed to have delivered us all from the evils of society.
The truth is there is no cure for crime or inhumane acts but we do have the ability to curb and control these – unfortunately political correctness is preventing us from eating the fruit of common sense.
How can we change? How can we bring back and instill morality into society? Again the truth lies within yourself – you have a voice and at meebal.com we openly welcome you to write articles on subjects that you are passionate about or simply comment on the articles we produce in order to openly debate social issues.
We are privileged in that we live in an era of communication and as such allows us to openly discuss all aspects of society and the social issues that deeply affect us with comparative ease.
I for one will continue to write articles in the hope that our society can change and in a way that we all find acceptable.
