As my older brother lay dying of terminal cancer/COPD; he told his daughters: “I will not go gentle into that good night – I will fight,” and proceeded to live that statement day after day when doctors predicted he would be dead. If there can only be one end; then it matters all the more how you face it – so I’m returning to the battlefield of human worth with a renewed commitment. And . . . Oh, yes; I’ve been pulling my punches with the previous books – it’s time to go toe-to-toe with our evil times. This book is an in-your-face challenge to those people who refuse to show their face: And if they won’t come into the light – I’ll bring the light to them.
If someone were to ask you to do something; if there were even the smallest chance of it injuring your child – you would say; “No, I won’t gamble with the life of my child.” But when technologies inherently risk all life on earth – you are willing to take that small chance; for a small benefit.
If words like “Extinction,” and “Apocalypse” are written too big for anything but videogames and movies: you need to step back a bit.
We now have the power to do incalculable things — and we have authorities who are eager to use that power.
Government isn’t impersonal; it’s personal. It’s a matter of life and death. . . January 15, 2022.
Being biological productors is fine – but kids need parents.
Bringing up your kid until the “streets” got him – is like caring for your baby until you left him in the car with the windows rolled up on a summer day: an inexcusable act for any parent. “An ounce of prevention is better than a postmortem.”
Maybe you could own dogs trained in narcotics detection; so they could indicate who in the area, including your children, is involved. A well planned, publicly funded, community based camera system could leave predators with no place to hide – and document the comings and goings, and actions of those who do harm to your children – “Stay in school – jail the fool.”
Why do this? For the same reason parents use baby monitors — so they can intervene on behalf of their children; instead of grieving — because they’re parents.
Doing nothing and being blameless is not an option for parents. It’s your call; and it’s your calling.
