Since the dreadful misadventure of George Floyd in the USA, much has been written since that fateful day. In the USA and around the world, wilful damage to property, larceny, vandalism, thievery, assaults, protests and the rampant spread of the Corona Virus.
Through the use of modern communication technologies we have seen the BLM movement develop and take matters into their own hands, flouting the law of the land and causing untold damage to their cause.
The BLM movement have used force and violent methodologies to denigrate people based solely on emotion generated by the desire to strike back at a society that has grown. A society through hard work has created a gap between the low socio economic classes, the middle class and the upper class. A copy of the article maybe downloaded by clicking on: AUSSIE BLACK LIVES MATTER
The BLM movement and their alleged association with the ANTIFA groups, left leaning socialists and front groups attempt to bring about change using violence as a weapon to achieve their goals.
The media have contributed much to the disintegration of society. A society many of us have grown up, taking for granted the freedoms we cherished. The media continue to feed society with emotional, negative headlines designed to shock and awe the average citizen.
The symbolism of ‘Taking the knee’ is not to create an awareness of injustices done to those dark skinned people but rather to bring attention to themselves. ‘Look, look at me’ I am black and I deserve recognition. Everyone else in their eyes are somewhat trash.
As such the BLM movement wants to denigrate others for the errors of a bygone era even if their ancestors had nothing to do with the past. Forcing people to kiss feet, home invasions, looting homes and businesses (Black, Asians and Indian sub continent as well), stopping traffic, mass street protests, murders and creating havoc by their mob mentality.
Recently we have had numerous incidents where people and children have had their lives taken merely because of their skin colour being less grey than the colours of the rainbow. The media have been quiet, citing that it was not newsworthy, did not fit in with their shock and awe headlines or deadly enough to attract an audience.
Tell that to the parents of the little lad that was shot in the head by a male whose colour of his skin was a shade darker than most. Tell that to the people who were attacked in the streets, in their beds, the stupid forcing product’s to change their name because it was offensive to their skin colour.
Tell that to the numerous law enforcement agencies around the world who took a solemn oath to safeguard citizens and property. They too have hearts and minds, souls, families and loved ones to go home to each night if they are injured in the job.
Tell that to the essential workers, medical staff agricultural, work from Mums and Dads, the paramedics, fire department, state emergency organizations and charities that work tirelessly to keep a stressed economy going during the current Corona virus pandemic.
Black Lives Matter to those willing to listen by dialogue and not by the use of violence. No one will take any organisation seriously if it embarks upon a journey of destruction. Our democracy is far too strong to yield to the likes of BLM, ANTIFA & associated organisations.
Sooner or later society will really behind its law enforcement and military organisations to bring an end to such violent methodologies. Our political representatives fearing for their jobs, pensions and status have failed miserably to grasp what is occurring and are learning on the job because it’s a scenario no one expected or was prepared for it. Politicians are using flawed models of behaviour and concepts to contain their citizens.
We are beginning to see society changing slowly, courts not allowing alleged peaceful protests to occur during the pandemic, the law enforcement agencies have been given extended powers to deal with an unruly mob.
The BLM/ANTIFA and their associates using the Pandemic as a shield to cover their negative activities and may have inadvertently changed the way society behaves. They have challenged the positive paradigms of society, bringing into question the validity of governments, laws and institutions.
What about the murders of whites in South Africa, the rapes, the looting and total denigration of a once vibrant society now in ruins. The denigration of the Papuans to our North who are suffering. The Chinese passive and aggressive threats on sovereign nations and why has climate change taken a back seat.
The only bright spot that I have seen do far is Sweden, Greece, Singapore, Taiwan to name a few nations to have handled and managed the BLM/ANTIFA and Pandemic issues effectively. In Australia, I must add that Scott Morrison has done extraordinary well given the environment. His leadership has been superb and if he continues along the same road, he and his government will be re-elected.
Daniel Andrew’s in Victoria, despite his mistakes, errors of judgement regarding BLM protests and the implementation of draconian lockdown procedures will still win the next election. I say this because of the absence of united coherent and alternative points of view by the opposition. Jeff Kennet in his recent passive criticism of the opposition leaders is well founded.
Therefore taking it all into account, I see no reason shy our law enforcement agencies cannot slap an electronic bracelet on a recalcitrant who deliberately flouts the law, is a danger to society based on their behaviour and continues miseries against society. Let the courts become the judges and not the out our Police force and military in such predicaments.
Today ‘FEAR’ has become a companion to many causing uncertainty, anxiety, me talking health issues and a huge rise in suicides. Politicians in my opinion sided and abetted by a ravenous news media have contributed greatly to this fear that has a permanent place amongst society.
Don’t take my word for it, read the titles of news media and press releases that are churned out every day. I for one have been monitoring the news media around the world since December 2019 for signs of positive change. When I do, the news item disappears quickly from the front page.
Social media has also generated much to FEAR and has a lot to answer for. The algorithms and artificial intelligence monitoring people’s online comments is nothing short of censoring and deliberate changing of behaviour.
Very very soon, the cliché, ‘Beware of what you read, hear and see’ will be no longer true. We have technology as we speak where profiles are stolen, personal data matched against the profile, voice and facial recognition manipulated to create documents, videos and other media related concepts.
In other words fake information using personal data being distributed. Politicians, psychological groups, behaviourists and academics will seek to introduce personalised digit (hack proof) individual chips to be embedded into every human being to safeguard them against personal data and theft.
We as baby boomers may see it happen during our life and I for one hope that it never happens. If it does come about, then we create another level of society that lives on credit, DNA health analysis and the freedom of choice.
Those responsible will use the pandemic as an excuse to embed chips into the elderly under the misconception to monitor their health and movements. Yes, I guess the BLM/ANTIFA and associates may have underestimated their mission in Australia at least.
Stay strong, vigilant and be of good cheer. The world is sti a beautiful place despite mankind’s imperfections.
