Ripping Off The Masks



I've mentioned before in this space of my belief that we are part of something sweeping the world. One of the outcomes of this new energy is that masks that shroud and camouflage are being ripped away at lightening speed. In the last week alone I've read of a high ranking CDC scientist being arrested for bestiality and child sexual abuse, the horrific Penn State scandal with a coach that put football above the protection of children, and of a documentary made in the mid 1990's that was squashed before it could be viewed on Discovery Channel. All known copies were purchased and destroyed by an unknown entity. The film exposed the organized abuse of children through Boys Town -  and was another case of people in the highest echelons of business and government hiding evil proclivities and abusing children that are most vulnerable.

Each day we read about wannabe-be politicians who have sexually harassed women and lie to cover it up, corporate executives that have the highest of incomes cheating their companies and their employees, Ponzi schemes, greedy bankers using the public trust like a casino, priests that abuse young boys being protected by those in power above them. The list goes on and on.

What is happening here?

It's time for humanity to clean up its act. And those that are practicing evil had better watch out, because they are no longer operating in the same system that has protected them for so long.

So each time you hear of a mask being ripped from the face of someone who deserves to be exposed - don't despair in humanity - let out a cheer instead. It's bringing us that much closer to a world that no longer tolerates these activities, or the people that perpetrate them.

I agree. I don't think there's more of this going on than in the past. I think they're being discovered and reported on instead. And that's a good thing.

A great way of looking at this which I hadn't considered!

Hilary said...

Yours is a sound position. Made me think. I was getting discouraged. But, oh the victims.

Brian Miller said...

i agree and shame on us if we just let it go by the way side...continue to vote them in office and let it happen...

YES!

I think many of today's media organizations are more willing to pursue stories of this type. Prosecutors can't duck out of charging the rich and powerful when the story is out there. So yes, there is hope!

ain't for city gals said...

totally agree...finally time for those who live in the fantasy of privacy to be disclosed...

So many times when I hear of things like those you have mentioned, I think of the Georgia Guidestones and the admonition, "Be not a cancer upon the earth."

I truly hope we are headed for a cleansing. Good post, Nancy.

Interesting you should post this as Berlusconi was finally stepping down from the Italian government... Now there's someone I hope to see ending up in jail some day for his abuse of power and corruption...

Wouldn't it be wonderful?

Let 'em rip! You said it all so clearly. They are NOT operating in the same system that allowed their evil acts. are they? The times are changing and it is time for each of us to shine a light on all evil acts, all corruption, all abuse that we encounter.
