“The First Duty of Government is to Protect the Powerless Against the Powerful.”
- Code of King Hammurabi of Ancient Arabia
Predators, sexual and political, are deceptive. First, they soften up their targets with sweet talk and promises. Then, at the first opportunity, they pounce to satisfy hunger for arousal, thirst for revenge or greed for material things.
Governance cannot be good in a predator-prone set-up. Predator satisfaction is not “the good we can do”. Rather, it is all about goodies to be gotten, and people to be manipulated, marginalized or hurt in the process.
People who resist are at risk for intimidation, abuse (social media and press conference), summary leave, and ID revocation. Resistance is patriotic. “No sword nor spear can conquer” a people’s desire to be free of predators.
“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.”
- Nora Ephron
Have courage, sisters! Sexual predators offer one choice: become a sex slave or not. Choose not, and in so doing protect children and teenagers, at all costs.
Sexual predators are skilled at targeting young people, female and male. Indeed, sexual predation in the Federation has a long, sordid and ongoing history.
The current carnage is typified by the 30 or so girls in the maternity wards. Also, the scores of depressed and psychotic persons, mostly female, either in professional care or self-medicating with alcohol, valium and kindred mood controllers.
A heroine refuses to undress to get a job. Praise is due to family, friends and citizens who are rallying in support. Needed is a government of zero tolerance to the multitude of sexual predators.
“I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.
The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.”
- Nelson Mandela
Courage, my brother! You may not like what Curtis Crooke says or how he says it. However, freedom of expression must be defended mindful of the provisions against libel and slander
People marched and died for the conscience freedoms now enshrined and enjoyed. Some are celebrated as national heroes. Pending recognition are the participants of the Buckley’s Uprising and other rebellions against colonial predators. Worthy too are the white-skinned men and women persecuted for their active support of brighter days for black people. Beneficiaries pay homage in emulating their courage.
All government actions are subject to judicial review. The problem is that associated damages are paid by taxpayers, not the predators.
The IMF should not object to a predator alleviation program in the 2019 Budget.
