|The Age of Light is upon us|
I write, because frankly, I love to write about everything.
How about you? Do you itch to write about this or that, something, anything? Are you compelled to write about relationships, experience, home life or families? Do you ever want to change things you perceive as wrong?
I practice writing for quantum change. I want to see change for the better in society, --even the smallest change, and in many cases, I want others to change for the better on their own initiative, by being honest with themselves. I want society's leaders to lead.
I have to be honest and admit I have a secret. I am
impatient. I want to change things for the better instantly if not sooner --but some things need to be changed instantly if not sooner.
One of the major problems with that theory is that one must correctly understand what the status quo really is at the moment of observation. Reality.
Perpetrators of wrongs must see themselves as doing wrong.
Abusive people need to be made to see themselves as they really are. Abusers. Abusers of women and children, abusers of seniors, the weak, and unfortunate pets. Abusers are those individuals that abuse anyone or anything that happens to be less powerful, less able to protect themselves and unable to escape.
Surprisingly, it is survival of cowards that comes to mind.
The fact is, abusers are insecure, weak-minded, incompetent cowards that viciously abuse and minimize others to aggrandize themselves, to show how "powerful and superior" they are.
In fact, little do they realize, they reveal themselves to be weak-minded, pathetic cowards --even psychotic and mentally ill individuals.
Any writer can default happily and make up fiction, but the realities of physical abuse of women, children and families can be black eyes, broken minds, broken hearts, broken homes, and broken bones--even death.
What society is doing now, or what is not being done, what is subtly approved, --right now, rightly or wrongly --and the bruises society's victims wear --is what has to be dealt with, and now. Denial by society is unacceptable. Denial by individuals is unacceptable.
How is the future framework of society established ?
By what we do today. What we formulate and accept as normal today. What is considered acceptable today.
Human beings are interesting subjects, interesting entities, and in the fantasy world, society is extremely fascinating --misguided or not, faulty or not, modified by aversion therapy a la Clockwork Orange or not.
In reality , however, society is defective.
Reality. Broken bones. Bruises. Being choked is what it is, not what one may fancifully pretend it to be. Denial does not erase bruises or repair broken bones.
The tendency to abuse can be modified and "fixed" but only with willful --and honest attention.
We may arbitrarily and solemnly declare there are underlying issues, events, and dissociated facts, social causes that precipitate attacks upon others in abusive relationships. We're supposed to generously allow for those. We convince ourselves it is unnecessary to intervene, pretend it unnecessary to force anyone to be truthful --after all, we can compensate with social feel-good understanding and give them a dandy "slap on the wrist".
Sure, we can. We're an advanced society, supposedly we can be politically correct and go out of our way to understand deviant behaviour.
Somehow that's supposed to make things better, it is supposed to prevent black eyes and bruises, broken bones and death, but it does not.
If we remain silent and say nothing we renege on our duty to society. We avoid facing perpetrators down.. We avoid pointing fingers. Never rock the boat, never pay inordinate attention to anything. Be 'politically correct'. Ignore the blatant regression of civility, society, ethics, and brutality within relationships -shall we also silently blame and admonish the victims?
After all, it's the status quo. It's approved by society's experts.
It's 'normal' according to society's 'experts' , so it's 'fine'. It's been happening for centuries, so it's 'fine'. Some cultures approve, even promote the abuse of women as property of spineless, vicious, abusive men, so it's acceptable. In some archaic patriarchal cultures, "honour killing" of daughters, sisters and siblings is "fine".
It's a typical strong man, weak woman relationship 'authorized' and , by neglect, seemingly approved by liberal feel-good social studies regardless how outrageous that may be.
Guess what? At Incoming Bytes, it is not "fine" .
I have no intention of accepting the status quo of the continuous abuse of women, children or pets.
I'm writing for quantum change, and you can too.
If you dare.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.
