Andrei Grieving for Eden

PM has blogged on the latest death of an innocent child, the very same child I posted on yesterday.

He starts off well enough noting, as I did the commonality between all these cases - and then notes how mealy mouthed political correctness stifles discussion when it comes to finding the solutions.

From here he goes off the rails.
See, it's not "widespread," is it Kim? And it's not "the country's" child abuse record, is it John? The more you try and pretend that beating children to death isn't a crime that can be profiled in any way, that it is in fact randomly distributed in the population, the more you make yourselves look stupid and conservatives look like people with a grip on the problem. Many of us have no enthusiasm for conservative solutions to this, but if you're constantly out there making non-conservatives look like imbeciles who are incapable of recognising facts that are staring them in the face, sooner or later conservative solutions are going to be adopted. Give yourselves a big pat on the back when that happens, you'll have helped enormously in achieving it.
Alas poor Milt conservative solutions are the only solutions.

If you read the Bible, a book of great wisdom God's plan for humanity is spelled out. Men and women are supposed to bond with one another, a lifetime bond.
18 And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.

19 And out of the ground the LORD God formed every beast of the field, and every fowl of the air; and brought them unto Adam to see what he would call them: and whatsoever Adam called every living creature, that was the name thereof.20 And Adam gave names to all cattle, and to the fowl of the air, and to every beast of the field; but for Adam there was not found an help meet for him.

21 And the LORD God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof;

22 And the rib, which the LORD God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man.

23 And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man.

24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.
It mattes not a whit whether this is a metaphor or is something that actual historical event it describes the idyll of human existence.

Alas we fell from grace and the idyll God intended for us is not always achieved and secular Government policy in the past forty years has been hell bent minimizing the marital arrangement.

No fault divorce was the initial weapon, Domestic Purposes Benefits and Gay Marriage are all part of this assault.

But without question those who manage an approximation of living a marriage as given to us by God are more content, more successful in life and their children do better in the world than those who don't. And those who have undertaken a sacramental marriage are more likely, in my experience to achieve this than those who are married before a state sanctioned celebrant in a Public park or who don't bother with any ceremony at all.

There are many examples in the scriptures of the Israelites turning their faces from God and in each case disaster for the Nation ultimately follows.

We live in a Nation that has turned our face from the God of our Fathers - for what is secularism if not that.

And the results are painfully evident.

Too true.

Well, sure - if everyone would just do the right thing there wouldn't be much in the way of crime. That doesn't really tell us much about what social policies a govt should apply though.

When I say "conservative solutions," I'm not talking about everybody doing the right thing, I'm talking about conservative kinds of things govts could implement. Things like trying to make people get married and stay married if they want to have sex with each other, through measures like ditching no-fault divorce, canning the DPB, making extra-marital sex a crime and so on. Sterilising the indigent's also come up on the comments thread for my post. My problem with Angus and Workman is that their studied refusal to face reality makes these kinds of "solutions" look realistic by comparison.

Not thinking that banning smacking would end child abuse would be a good start. Here's an interesting story suggesting the liberals got this one wrong:

To fix the minority of cases, we break the majority of cases

PM undoing the damage the Liberals have done to maintenance of healthy human relationships is a big task.

No fault divorce was a particularly destructive concept that goes to minimizing the seriousness of the marriage relationship.

Read Gramsci, marriage has always been in the cross hairs of the left
and they have just about rendered it meaningless.

Falling birthrates and human misery and unfulfilment follow.

Our society is far more violent than it was fifty years ago - this too is a consequence of the destruction of the family.
