Repeated calls for essential, identified & known long term social benefit through the provision of additional Mental Health Counselling have constantly & deliberately being ignored by the State & Federal governments of all persuasions.
Seems governments are happy with hospitals, prisons, & juvenile detention centers fully occupied to over full, so the point where dangerous detainees are bailed.
Maybe this is a way they can justify their existence, Ministries & of course salaries & over generous Superannuation perks & continuing retirement business connections.
This situation has been deteriorating for years generally as sugar, alcohol & gambling Mafia have provide more alluring & persuasive benefits where we build casinos on public land whilst the poor live on sugared up drinks & cheap processed take away to advance national obesity as we try in general ignorance to distract ourselves from residual, unaddressed childhood trauma.
Now fermenting from beneath the outpouring of worldly accolades we see & identify justifiable criticism to the tragic Sydney siege with suggestions that the situation may possibly have been “blown” because Prime Minister Abbott refused or was ‘supposedly advised” not to speak with the deranged, cornered, desperate gunman.
I do understand & would like to respect his office of Prime Minister however
when the entire matter was captured & continues to be run for all its worth by the very same man & his media entourage as they cynically attempt to prop up an equally deranged ideological mob of fundamentally set minds, who supposedly are keeping us safe from such politically motivated terrorism by “stopping the boats” whilst simultaneously overlooking & apparently condoning torturous investigations in detention and incarcerating children against official United Nations sanction for refugees, we need to ask for & are entitled to better results.
“Be assured people, Yes people need to be reassured” so we are repeatedly informed, that whilst ever there is political advantage to be gleaned there will be an in depth inquiry to get to the bottom of this matter to ensure it never occurs again.
So we are repeatedly advised. “That we need to know & learn how to protect ourselves from these wicked people.”
Considering, now in hindsight, that the nations emotions for many people had already been accessed, aroused & elevated immediately following the tragic & unquestionable shock & media reinforced empowerment of Philip Hughes’ death. A shock which rightfully ensured postponement of a test match for Philip’s funeral, team building, holding, support & statements galore held many in a suspended, heightened & disturbed state of their being.
From the depth of our national pride our spirit had been awakened by such a shock. An accident virtually beyond belief.
Then with our emotional magazines filled with national pride & burdened grief the team went on to win the Adelaide test against horrendous odds.
Regular honour & individual tributes were paid by the players (& the media) reconnection to the incredible spiritual aroused presence of their departed 408 team mate.
We all cried together releasing amazing joy, delight. Shared laughter with tears of sorrow giving relief from that withheld contained pain filled place of denied sadness.
Reinforced by confirmation the world over showed us all that we had been deeply influenced by the “Hat on a Bat” outside our front door in absolute respect & acknowledgment for the fallen one Philip Hughes.
The media persisted in highlighting access to the freely offered, available & touching emotional penetration & in this situation it all seemed so acceptable.
Acceptable until the Martin Place siege erupted & the Prime Minister jumped on the band wagon & continues to drive it whilst ever his horses can gallop rough shod across our land where “shit happens too”.
Evidence to support this situation is seen before our very eyes with the ever expanding non political wreath of spiritual connected remorse & expressed solace to be found by laying flowers & messages to acknowledge the loss of innocence Australia once knew & shared at the city’s heart in Martin Place, on internet sites, social media & distant spontaneous shrines across the land.
Regrettably there was no accident to the Martin Place tragedy.
We all knew it was brewing, it was simply a matter of when & where. Stirred & generated into reality by political preparation, hence the cynical “go getting” media presence mentioned.
Please do not think for one minute that I do not respect all those involved in rescuing the hostages, they are brave & heroic as are all the military personnel who are sent to risk their lives overseas. I sincerely do respect & I thank them & their accepted call to duty for our country.
I admit & own my own upset, my pain & my egotistical anger.
Here I am making this call to high light the need for additional awareness of the desperate need & untold social benefit available for support about all forms of stress, worry & unresolved troubles available through professional Counselling.
Our gradual eroded loss of innocence has been percolating from deep within us all as our wonderful land & our people have been ravaged by an increasing, progressive lack of respect for earth and all creatures including their fellow men as we have been psychologically dragged by advertising & corporate sponsorship principally by alcohol & gambling. Those that know me understand that like most Aussies I enjoy a beer or even two so I don’t come here as a wowser.
Those known to be peddling fundamental ideology of materialistic ignorance, for excessive individual greed, power and unconscionable material gluttony in Murdoch styled media manipulated minds need to be exposed as to what they do to our naive innocent children & people generally with & through the powerful influence of media.
These perpetrators are immature, under developed, deranged, narcissistic psychopaths who pay homage to the lifeless spirit of their corporate $$.
These recent tragedies have shown that the peoples spirit cannot be purchased, or tricked & is not for sale to “snake oil selling politicians” or media barons of any persuasion.
Deep within the heart of heats people feel know, recognise and appreciate love.
