ENSLAVED NEW WORLD: occasional new slogans but inwardly just more of the same?

by Arnold Jago in Abortion, Australia, Beauty, Ethics, Lifestyle, Media, Politics

Head of state: a deranged, amoral, self-absorbed, survival-obsessed psychopath?
Media: a lying, brain-rotting tool of corporate wealth?
Traditional culture: a hypocritical, enfeebled, decaying carcase?
Youth: promiscuous, social-media-group-think-addicted narcissists?
Name me one nation on earth where the above doesn’t apply.
Fair-go-mouthing Australia? Great-again America?
Hardly.
Do I, perhaps, exaggerate?
Anyway, if any renewal of goodness is to happen anywhere, it will have to start small.
In our own personal decision-making. In our families. In our church(?)
Now and then there are signs of hope.
But don’t wait for somebody else to do something.
Repeat these words regularly:
“Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thy Kingdom come. Thy will be done, on earth as in heaven….”

THE “SOCIAL” MEDIA: addictive, idolatrous, mind-numbing and handy for keeping billionaires affluent.

by Arnold Jago in Celebrities, Media, Money

Social media fans can, and do, watch murders, suicides and rapes live.
Facebook CEO, Mark Zuckerberg, concedes that his video-streaming service caters for “the most personal and emotional and raw and visceral” communication.
YouTube and Twitter appeal to similar instincts.
Top political science commentator, Dr Jennifer Oriel, when asked why she doesn’t use Twitter, said it’s because Twitter is in the main “a brutal medium”.
Isn’t she right?
She’s right not to use it.
So should we all not….
At least not until everybody starts loving their neighbour as it says in the Book.
Inadequate filtering technologies certainly aren’t the problem.
We are the problem.

“THE RED PILL”: looking at an old problem in a different way, and getting a mixed reception!

by Arnold Jago in Entertainment, Family, Media, Women

The film “The Red Pill” explores difficulties facing men regarding violence, custody issues etc.
People seeing it mostly say it’s unbiased.
Nevertheless, “feminist” activists are browbeating cinemas into not screening it.
The film-maker herself identifies as a feminist.
It’s vital not to trivialise this into a “women’s-rights-versus-men’s-rights” wrangle.
“Rights” are an invention of politicians and ruling class — suitable for composing pretty documents like the “UN Declaration of Human Rights”.
Concerning real issues, where you and I live, the language of “rights” doesn’t work.
For a better society, we must think in terms of “responsibilities”.
Like marriage – irrevocably taking responsibility for each other and for the children, if any.
No violence, not even verbal violence — the parties having vowed to live and act as one.
Children should learn this from their mother’s knee — and hopefully observe it in practice.

“GIRLS NEED TO BE FREE”: do they? is it even possible? what about the rest of us?

by Arnold Jago in Common Sense, Family, God, Happiness, Media, Women

Steve Biddulph’s latest book is “Ten Things Girls Need Most: To Grow Up Strong and Free”.
Was “free” really the word he was looking for?
Evolution theory – the kind usually pushed in media and classroom – leaves no room for freedom. Aren’t we just biochemical robots?
Common sense and true religion say that we aren’t.
If God exists, he has given us the freedom to sin – and the freedom not to sin. You can’t have one without the other.
So, try expressing an opinion in certain unfashionable no-go areas. Have a go.
You may lose your job — even your head.
Such things have been reported on TV. There would be lots more if the media didn’t self-censor.
And we’re also told that if we express certain un-trendy ideas, certain people will be offended and will (perhaps) kill themselves.
A kind of dictatorship-by-suicide-threat?

FEAR STALKS AUSTRALIAN SOCIETY WHILE WE DROWSE: too soon it will be too late.

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Family, Media, Multiculturalism, Persecution

Coopers Breweries are currently in panic mode – terrified of being boycotted by the homosexual lobby.
They’re busily disclaiming any support for a televised polite discussion between two politicians about same-sex-marriage (SSM) — which happened to advertise their product.
What might be the attitude of ordinary NON-homosexual beer-drinkers to SSM? It’s on them that Coopers depend most of all to make money.
Nobody knows for sure.
However, their attitude to spineless inhibiting of free speech by big-moneyed corporations — I think we can guess that.
The debate itself was wishy-washy and missed the main point.
Isn’t the worst thing about SSM that such couples will use their being “married” to reinforce their claimed “right” to adopt children – thus unnecessarily depriving children of a mother-father-based family unit to belong to?
That aspect didn’t get a mention.

LEFT WING “PROGRESSIVE” POLITICS: progressing towards what?

by Arnold Jago in Australia, Celebrities, Common Sense, Education, Faith, Family, Lifestyle, Media, Women

1. Australia’s “progressive” media are making a celebrity of a woman who calls Islam a “feminist” religion.
Don’t they know that in the countries where Islam is practiced most, women are stoned for alleged infidelity?
Didn’t an official Islamic spokesperson recently tell Australia’s Sky News that sometimes it’s OK to beat one’s wife?
Islam needs to “progressively” convert its own traditionalist adherents away from violence-prone fundamentalism.
2. Some Australians consider themselves “progressive” when Sydney streets are filled with persons promoting anal sex as normal.
Many Australians let their youngsters go to “progressive” schools which groom them to condone (if not to practise) that kind of thing, and to vilify anybody discouraging it?
Perhaps Australia needs to “progressively” eradicate those ideas.
Perhaps the Australians loudest in their claims to be progressive are progressing down the wrong track.
