pedophils out :-S
I’m going to sound like a snob now… but for the love of FSM can someone please tell lynch mobs how to spell!!!
On BBC news earlier I saw “Paedophils Out” and “Parents against Pedofiles” on banners… clearly made by intelligent individuals aware of all the facts and not just stirred up by the media… PLEASE, if you’re going to campaign about something, at least learn how its spelt: Paedophile (or american Pedophile)
Do you think any of them realise that just 10% of these incidents are by strangers?
Why don’t the media or presure groups talk more about the other 90%? Simple, its not a good story, its not as emotive… I forget which US president said this (JFK?) “the only thing we have to fear, is fear itself” I’m sick of us turning the world upside down over irrational fears.
Words of wisdom from Boris Johnson MP (who I don’t often agree with) who I think hit the nail on the head the other day:
“To all those who worry about the paedophile plague ….they fail to understand the terrible damage that is done by this system of presuming guilt in the entire male population just because of the tendencies of a tiny minority
… the problem is the general collapse of trust. Almost every human relationship that was sensibly regulated by trust is now governed by law, with cripplingly expensive consequences”
Fear has taken over, logic has lost… how do we ever get back from here when todays children are being protected more than ever, against a smaller risk? It’s a paranoia circle of hype and irrational reaction thats just going to get worse 🙁
