If there is one thing that can be trusted from this political class, it’s that whatever the reasons may appear to be for anything they do, the real reasons won’t be the ones we actually see.
Whilst the media carries on reporting everything from Westminster as if all is normal, the issues the country is facing are normal, and all of our MPs are in touch and dealing with anything that the media deems to be important as if that’s normal – the truth is that there is a hell of a lot more going on. And it is being obscured from view by the focus only ever being on the narrative that the establishment wants us all to see.
Horrifying as it may sound to anyone who has a basic moral compass and an understanding between the difference of right and wrong, we only have laws and punishments for breaking them because someone somewhere has already gone through a process of deciding whatever the ‘crime’ might be, needs a rule, and have then gone through whatever process necessary to put them there.
The cold hard reality is that even murder, that most serious of crimes, is only legislated for and punishments applied, because whoever was in charge at the time decided that it should be so. Not because there was a set of rules that existed for mankind to follow at the beginning of time.
It’s important to understand this, as everything we are experiencing now in terms of behaviours being outlawed, frowned upon or made politically incorrect – that in reality are just based on a different opinion and what is deemed incorrect for the times – could very soon become legislated against as a punishable crime.
When you can accept that one opinion or thought is no more wrong than any other, you can soon see the problem with outlawing or rather attempting to outlaw the way people think, just because it’s not the same way that someone else thinks, and that other person then decides that thinking contrary to their own should be a crime.
Outlawing thought is an attempt to exert full control over the person whose thoughts are being outlawed.
People are thinking all manner of things, all of the time. Some of those things IF enacted, would certainly constitute a crime. But thought is not action and action can only become a crime when the right of another to exist freely and without harm or restriction has itself been denied. The key to the whole equation is to always remain conscious that in a free world, this process is and always will be a two-way street.
Careers ruined, social rejection and ‘cancellation’ could soon be considered amongst the lightest punishments possible, if our politicians genuinely now believe that we should return to capital punishment and the death sentence. All when crime isn’t crime, and knee jerk responses that bend to publicised opinion are the only motive that weak, rudderless and morally deficient politicians actually have.
