Yours, mine and Australia's children

Yours, mine and societies children 
 
As a parent wishing to ensure the safety of my child and being desirous of being prosperous in my and my childs life and due to the nature and the position you hold in society I am writing to clarify a few things which from my understanding of you through the media and other referrals remains unclear.

There is an opportunity in the upcoming election to ask that just this once politicians, business people, the religious and individuals put aside their fears and concerns and focus on the children in our society as a means of providing what for them is an urgent need. I ask that you put aside all else while our children are in need of protection and to look  towards our children as individuals and to also look to them in the collective. They are regularly beaten and bullied, intimidated and sexually abused in increasing numbers, they are silenced through constant talk of economics and business and a myriad other issues and needs through to arguments over who to blame and who to sue and who to lock up and to who is responsible.

We are left to fight and argue amongst ourselves on how to deal with this issue and find ourselves being added to the increasing list of destroyed and damaged whilst we each are forced into despair and depression, many of us become unbalanced and dis-illusioned, angry and destructive and turn to alcohol and drugs, violence or denial. We each understand we are helpless and ineffective on our own and subsequently many self destruct or re-enact their own abuse as a means of managing or reacting to this issue. We add to the law enforcement and health woes of society whilst arguments rage over AWA's and economics, other amongst us become angry or hide in our sports or business pursuits which does nothing to assist on this issue.

Our psychologists and doctors, our health care workers and child protection professionals, our charities and the mums and dads of Australia are over-run by the load whilst many struggle to cope with providing support services at their own costs because they know that and understand that the health of our society is as a result of the way we treat our children. So many are enraged at the circumstance they are put into and yet they too are drowned out and forced into silence whilst AWA's and economic arguments continue. They go home at the end of their day sapped to the core because our Governments have failed them and our children. They are personally and financially poorer as they say to their spouses, families and friends that society has simply lost sight of the children and they refuse to stop arguing over money and who is to blame, over whose religion or business is bigger or better or whatever - it makes no sense  to them and they, like those affected can do little but weep. They raise and protect the few children in our society who it seems can go through childhood empowered to survive intimidation and bullying, they do all that is within their ability and will fight to the death to protect their children from domestic violence and sexual abuse.

Politicians plan grand events and undertake immense projects to provide us with the best infrastructures, they strive to be transparent and progressive, they increase education, health and law enforcement spending, they create jobs and more and yet the numbers of children being sexually assaulted continues to rise to where almost 20% of children report being sexually molested by the time they reach the age of 12. We know that an abused child lies behind so many of those in our jails and health institutions whilst bishops and popes rail against driving habits or hypothetically speak against what the educated and affected understand can prevent a wide range of health and disease issues which can provide many with hope and potentially a healthy place in our society.

As a parent I ask you where can I go in this society where my child can be safe from the generational and self expanding issues of domestic violence and sexual abuse, from political bullying and postulating, from financial arguments, from the blame culture and the ineffectiveness of the system. Why do we support systems which destroy our lives and the lives of our children? Why is that those who attempt to act against these things find themselves the targets of financial, legal and medical bullying and why do they fail to gain the support that is needed whilst systems to support the wonderful achievements of individual ministers and political parties can obtain a continuous unending supply of funding. Our future funds have billions in reserve yet our children remain the targets of all the ills our society is able to produce. We argue over when life begins and legislate absurd time frames and rules and then enforce those on to people which effectively removes individual rights from both mother and child. It is not the role of Government or the role of any individual religion to remove the right to what is biologically and genetically inherent in us all, yet that is the absurdity we are faced with. It is the role of Government, business, religion, our legal and medical professionals in the same way that it is the obligation of each parent to ensure they provide a safe environment through following their parental instincts and to apply them to children as a collective.

Governments must remove statute of limitations and other laws and regulations which are a direct assault on the rights of children whilst the right to obtain natural justice is impeded at every possible step by self interested Cardinals and politicians, corporations and business. Whilst our Telstras simply count the suicides as a part of the cost of generating profits for their shareholders and argue their untenable position because they foolishly believe it may adversely affect their bottom line. Governments appear afraid to question religious authority whilst those in society follow their own convictions they are bullied by the whims and dictates from religions with a thousand year history of sexual, political and business deviations and is bent on retaining what they believe is their right to permit more than 10% of their clergy to be active sexual predators of our children whilst our newspapers and television, whilst individuals and professionals, whilst politicians and businessmen remain silent and afraid of offending those who by their actions such as The Towards Healing and The Independent Commission into Sexual Abuse through the use of apparent limitless wealth, limitless power and limitless business connections can maintain this abhorrent and heinous position.

What can you do about it when the very people who take up the challenge become embroiled in the financial defeatist attitude of those who use their positions in society to feather the nests of their mates or to silence the rights of children by putting the protection of failed religious, political and business leaders?

What can you do? Join together and tell the politicians that these inhuman actions of our religious bodies, our corporates, our Police services and our health systems that the right for a child to be raised with a belief in a God is safe in the hands of our neighbours from the sexual deviances of any individual, business, political or religious person. Tell them that the way their current systems work is an absolute failure and that if they do not tear down all that puts our children at risk then not only has their party, their religion or their charity, their legal  and law systems, health, corporate and business systems for children are failures and that they should be banished to the political, religious and business wilderness and that the scorn of every concerned mother and brother, father and sister, every concerned priest and police officer, every concerned psychologist and doctor, every concerned teacher and parent will be poured on them and history will show them to be men more interested in waging war or making money for themselves or their mates, to be men more interested in satisfying their own greed and  lusts than in ensuring a safe environment for their own children. Let them know why their own children despise them when they fail them at every level as their environment is sucked dry and their children and the children of others remain in constant peril.

It is time to say to Liberals, to say to Labour, Greens and Democrats that we do not want to hear a murmur from you regarding your deals and your mates, not a murmur about what you have done in the past, not even a whisper of what you plan until you can provide a clear pathway to a safe environment for a lost 8 year old in the mall or an 8 year old or their 30 year old parent in their religious, legal and business dealings. Not a sound until children and families and each individual is provided with functional and effective non-adversarial caring and supportive protection from sexual abuse and domestic violence no matter where it comes from.

What we have currently is simply not good enough, not good enough for my child, for my neighbours child or my friends child or for children as a collective and can never be whilst our religious preach justice and act with all at their disposal to avoid their responsibility to the thousands of children they permitted to be abused in their churches and charities - tell them it is just not good enough.

Ignore the junk mail, turn off the television, pick up the phone or email your priest, your politician and ask your CEO and your Union delegate, ask your community Police Officer what can you do to assist whilst your politicians and religious leaders act so irresponsibly - thats not good enough either. Ask your television presenters, your children's teachers and carers, your local Government officials, your acting, pop and sports idols, ask your partner what are we doing to put a stop to this.

When they act, when you act, when we all speak out for my child and for your child, for all our children, when we all put aside our petty arguments, our political, religious and business beliefs and desires, when we do act that is barely good enough. When children are safe in our religious, business and political environments then we have a chance to extend that into our families and our homes and a chance to provide for our individual and all children collectively what is their natural right and what is the obligation every parent feels towards their own children. Then it may be good enough to allow us all an opportunity to achieve a harmonious, healthy, happy and safe place to raise and educate our children and to fulfill our genetic obligation to ourselves to ensure the survival of us as a humanity.

Until it is good enough our society and those who lead it can only be described as dysfunctional and opposed to the real needs of children and families in our society.

When our political and religious systems fail, when our health and business systems fail then the population must follow and bear the blame and the guilt for the failures of their leaders in the areas of politics, business, religion, health, charities and justice. Until that changes they simply lead a powerful, noisy dysfunctional life which they enforce on to each individual parent, each individual family and each individual child in our society. Without your actions or assistance we are all doomed to experience and re-experience the horrible outcomes this enforces on us all.
 
Quite seriously this country looks like it is being run by a shipload of drunken fools. I don't know who is in charge, but whoever it is it is plain to see they do not know what they are doing. While these fools argue over their grubby deals and money the rest of of us are out here doing our utmost for our children. I really think it is time to tell them just where to go and tell them what they should do to set this place back on its feet because it is plainly clear to the mums and dads, the kids in our schools, their teachers in fact it is plain to the rest of our society and these fools want to hang on to the bottle and the money - time for them to let go - time for them to take their marbles and go home we have had enough of your bickering and stupidity. Its time to get someone who knows how to run a family which is not dictated by a miserly budget whilst they sit on billions scraped from the health of our elderly and from the safety and health of our children, from those effected by domestic violence because again these fools are busy buddying up and doing deals and madly running around slapping bandaids and money into all else except the problems of domestic violence and all that it encompasses, except the issue of clergy and sexual abuse.
 
Its my contention that they have lost the plot because they have consistently put their need for war and their global mates as well as their greed and stupidity in front of the needs of families and yours, mine and Australia's children.

"The molestation of minors certainly is more heinous than the abuse of adults. Both acts, however, stem from the same evil: misuse of power by trusted authority figures using religion and faith to cloak their actions. Sexual abuse by clergy is wrong on every level." (David Person).

The failure of Governments at all levels to act against the clergy and sexual abuse indicates that there may be an inability on the part of political leaders and politicians to act to protect my, Australia's and your own children and the non existence of good parenting practices from those politicians and the inability for them to hear the cries and pleas of mothers, fathers and children across this country. For me that is simply not good enough. Is it good enough for you?
