ever been a more cruel misnomer than the word 'care' when applied
to the children who are the real victims of broken homes?
According to the latest study from the Prince's Trust - Prince
Charles's own charity - more than one in six teenage girls in
'care' are either pregnant or already mothers by the time they
leave the system.
Meanwhile, more than half the children in council 'homes' have
been expelled from school. Seventy per cent leave formal education
with no qualifications. And these disturbed, unloved, unhappy
young people are all too likely to find themselves in trouble
with the police. . . . .
we have the farce over adoption, with politically-correct social
workers refusing to believe that children are better off cherished
by adoptive families than they are in 'homes' or foster care.
Even though the Government is belatedly trying to overcome red
tape and obsessive ideology, [at least it says it is - my comment]
the social work establishment is still producing guidelines making
it more difficult to adopt.
Nothing, it seems, is really changing, while more and more children
are condemned to loveless 'care' and blighted lives.

Now will anyone
believe me that what the modern ideology and belief system is
really aiming at is a population of demoralised criminals? (With
no 'elitist' non-criminal population.)
are reacting with hostility to Jeffrey Archer's recent revelations
about prison life. Prisons, like schools and hospitals, are run
by agents of the collective, who are above criticism, and unpleasant
stories about what goes on inside them should be treated as lies.
people express the view that it is a good thing to draw attention
to the need for better (and more expensive) treatment for the
predominantly working class (and hence lovable) prison population.
But such concern
need not be taken at face value. What is actually the case is
that the prison environment is a microcosm of the ideal society,
at present only fully achieved within a limited and enclosed space.
Demoralised criminals in a state of anarchy, but deprived of freedom,
presided over by people of the same sort who have been 'trained'
to enact the roles of warders and psychiatrists. What politically
correct person does not look forward to the day when this ideal
state of affairs will pour forth and flood the world?
