Just another Friday

Problem?
Parents are in a position of trust. Parents have influence over their children. Children may act as these people want. The children may not realise this is not desired behaviour.

Solution?
Register all parents. Subject them to forced annual checks by trained staff. Such staff will have the power to remove children from parents and interview them alone.

Next step?
We need to listen to children. We need to have a safe environment where children can talk, freely. We will simply invite children to tell a trained advocate about any activity in the home that they think falls outside of the normal conventions. Teachers will tell children what those conventions are; we will tell the teachers what to teach. Of course our new generation of children will not be recruited as informers. What an absurd idea.

Dealing with opposition
We need to engineer a mass movement to create our new culture. Then we can claim we have responded to popular need. We will soak the media with the word paedophile. We will suggest that everyone who has contact with children is a potential predator. The public will pick up this idea, and accuse each other. Those who are already beaten, coerced, downtrodden and mean spirited will do our work. You can hear them already: I have to register, why shouldn't you? We have to be checked, why shouldn't you? Because let's face it, if you have nothing to hide, you have nothing to fear.


'The introduction of a compulsory annual visit by a health visitor or trained advocate is suggested to ensure that the most at-risk children (about 68 per cent of cases involved children from birth to four) can express concerns to a professional.'

- have the right of access to the home;
- have the right to speak with each child alone if deemed appropriate'

The children's story.

If you haven't read it, do. It's very short.
