FIXING AUSTRALIA: in three simple steps

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Common Sense, Family, Lifestyle, Women

What to do about older men falling for and/or exploiting young female associates?
Three obvious changes might be worth considering:
• Keep young females safe at home with family, learning how to be part of a family until they are ready to marry
• End consumption of alcohol by temptation-prone persons (i.e. everybody)
• Discontinue provocative dressing by young females
These suggested moves are only moderately trendy — but once we’re used to them everybody should be better off.

YOUNG HOPEFUL, YOUNG MUM, SURPRISED DAD: pray to God that all will turn out fairly happy.

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Celebrities, Common Sense, Family, Lifestyle, Politics

Australia’s most newsworthy unborn baby is having consequences in both private lives and in the political sphere.
Both good news and bad news.
The best news is that the child wasn’t aborted — a huge plus.
Dare we hope the mum will now decide to be a full-time mum?
Forget the job for a while.
Concentrate on feeding, cuddles etc.
Nobody is ever quite indispensable in the world of politics.
To this new citizen, his or her mum is absolutely indispensable.
Let’s wish this new mother all the best in the great responsibility and privilege that life has dropped in her lap.

HARM MINIMISATION, LIVE-IN REHABILITATION ETC. living with the drug/anti-drug mega-industry.

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, crime, Health, Lifestyle, Politics

One of Australia’s biggest industries is, unfortunately, the buying and selling of illegal drugs.
Another growth-industry is the harm-minimisation industry – which includes things like clean needle handouts, safe-injection rooms, methadone maintenance programs – and even live-in rehab centres.
These two industries need each other.
They flourish side by side.
When business is brisk, there will always be somebody willing to come up with a business model for live-in rehab — taxpayer-funded and profit-generating.
They’ll tell how their kind of rehab saves lives, prevents disease etc.
If you feel a bit skeptical about that, you may feel even more so after listening to the conclusions of British psychiatrist/drug researcher, Theodore Dalrymple:

He has written a book about it entitled “Romancing Opiates”.

DANIEL ANDREWS IS RIGHT ABOUT “PILL-TESTING”: the need to stay rational….

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Common Sense, crime, Ethics, Lifestyle

Last week several people at a Melbourne Festival Hall dance required treatment for breathing difficulties after taking a drug.
Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews is again under pressure to legalise pill-testing at such functions.
No, says the premier, he won’t, because “there is no safe level at which these drugs can be taken….”
Greens Party leader, Richard Di Natale, says Mr Andrews “has his head in the sand” — because young people will always experiment with drugs….
Being opposed by the Greens may be a good sign — many of their policies betray contempt for the rule of law and for human beings as potentially rational creatures.
It won’t be easy for Premier Andrews to stick to principle on this one.
Let’s hope he does.
We need to turn the tide away from irresponsible weak-minded “pragmatic” attitudes.

HOW TO MAKE YOUR CHILD PHYSICALLY AND/OR MENTALLY UNWELL: just keep up the not-so-good work!

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Celebrities, Death, Education, Family, Health, Lifestyle, Youth

Australian children are being increasingly exposed to indoctrination.
Learning how gender is something fluid — not necessarily one of two kinds.
And how having two “parents” of the same sex is normal.
And how the key to a person’s identity what sex-related practice turns him/her on.
And how whatever turns you on is your “right” — so long as we pretend nobody else is getting hurt.
So adultery, fornication, casual sex, lust etc. are all OK now.
Since Biblical times, and before that, they were considered bad and perverse.
Perhaps it’s time we took them seriously again.
Let’s teach children that other people aren’t there just to gratify them.
First, of course, we’d have to ourselves stop thinking and acting badly.
Perhaps we don’t feel like making that change.
So maybe forget all about it.
If we do, stand by and watch youth suicides, adult suicides, sexually-transmitted diseases and a few other things keep increasing.

AUSTRALIA DAY, JANUARY 26: Pat Cash wants it changed. Do you?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Celebrities, History, Justice, Lifestyle, Multiculturalism

Pat Cash doesn’t want to observe Australia Day on January 26.
He’s upset about on-going poverty in many Aboriginal communities.
Yes, white people have treated Aborigines badly at times.
Mostly we’re not actively hostile — just unsure how to do better in our inter-racial relationships.
Mostly we can’t see how changing the Australia Day date would help.
Since time began, every country has experienced population inter-minglings which modified and devastated the old ways.
A land like Australia was never going to stay hunter-gatherer land.
That being so, the best we can do now is to express mutual respect and — where appropriate — mutual forgiveness.
Mr. Cash’s involvement in a charity working with aboriginal communities sounds great.
Maybe more of us should do the same, finding ways to do good things together.
One very good thing being to let bygones be bygones — and celebrate Australia Day as one.
