Men from Mars could be forgiven for thinking we are the ultimate in compassion driven societies , If it's not refugees it hard done by aborigines and gays that appear daily in our news feeds as the most needy , the most fragile .Never has the strength or the focus been so strong on so few ( groups &numbers ) So why is it not all about every needy group ---- or is it ---in a way ? ,
So is it true about the deep needs of these small groups or is just a token focus trick - are the tears real ?, With a society that s clearly more dependent than ever on others generosity is this a crying out for care for all those who now share that dependency---on the purse of government .
They are, after all, campaigns not about "what WE need to do "but what "THE GOV needs to do" .These tears don't hit the ground because they differ from REAL care in not being REAL personal - a product of the new age of Telecare
I don't trust this outpouring of concern to be what it appears to be . Neither did the well qualified psychologists who wrote the consensus papers on maladaptive trends in media the 21 st century The Telecom 2000 report on Social Futures .
Take the tears being spilt by the leader of the Greens Dr Di Natalie over those young people who he claims will commit suicide as a result of an open public discussion about something that is quite removed from their general concerns . His tears and tearjerking don't hit the floor for me , sounding a lot like a big dose of fear - not like the political posturing of ISIS and their use of suicide risk . .
The Greens have a reputation for worry , which we wouldn't mind if it was linked with real risk not fear risk . The West has long since moved beyond their seeing Nature as god .Many Greens worries centre around an excessive fear of the unknown and natures danger filled daily cycles. Fair enough if thats all there is -if everything else is a construct. Let them get lost in their own forest i say .
Progressive parents would be wondering what is to be gained by gays seeking 160 million dollars worth of a very tired old bourgeois idea, they themselves threw out as unnecessary decades ago .Noone in their household is going to shed tears form not getting it so we don't know which families have suicidal children bereft of being denied the old white piece of paper . Even Christians have enough resilience over the subject to draw up their own contracts .
I don't know anyone who is going to kill themselves because the govt won't give them the piece of paper they want . I know plenty who will throw a tantrum if they don' t get what they want - Maybe thats the real worry? Maybe its not about marriage, but about bullying ?
Are the advocates for real ?-wanting us to prop up the delicate mental health of some unknown child ?
I know its a reality that just telling a child he cannot change his genetic base can encourage him to think suicide --but not getting a piece of paper you never wanted in the first place ---No
We don't talk about marriage as if its the B all end all - because it isn't
. Is the campaigning then about gaining something else ? Things like recognition , self esteem and power , A win in the game of words ,A nice letter of appreciation from your local member to hang up on your wall. A pice of paper to laughed at and then thrown in the bin - wasted politics .
There has to be more at stake here -than is obvious . But no one dares talk about in case they get called a bigot ; in case soem persons fragile mental health will be impacted . We accept assume that sticks and stones do break mens bones but men were once more resilient.
The lack of debate about the stakes suggest that most people are convinced its like changing the label for something -- that simple . It simply cannot be that simple >
If it just that why not go the progressive and mentally proactive way and give your new group a distinctive new name . That could be expected to boost self esteem far more than joining the dinosaur branch of relationship prescriptions
No what is happening here is subterfuge-- is far deeper than a mere offer to include . Its really about an offer to destroy . Its aim is not to build marriage but to destroy respect for what marriage means . Its an assault not on how we do things, but on how we perceive things and how our children will percieve things( the best reason of all right now to resist this silly simple request )
If the bureau takes this on ,as their baby our children can expected to not think of marriage as family focus but relationship focus ; not a structure to give structure to family but one likely but to undermine it as it did in the Russian revolution ( noted by Orwell) ,
By making all relationships equal there becomes less need for roles - mums dads and the genetic drivers that god like humans can NOW in their brilliance bring to love in its highest form ( man love)
The more men talk the more you realise they don't know what they are talking about .
If you want to know more about dealing with this problem from a lateral point of view you can't go past this mans perspective as its enabled people to wear abuse and ridicule for centurues . Sustainable and practical if you follow it as millions have !
