HELP & ADVICE needed please. A problem involving: safeguarding, grooming, drugs, taxis, reluctance of police, ignorance of local authorities; possibly protection of perpetrator by local councillors. Thread begins
1 Scene is a road in a suburban community. A man constantly parks up a vehicle covered in taxi firm decals, outside the home of a young woman (who appears to have some issues but she is not the focus of this) Keeps his lights on, motor running through the night.
2 Residents observe reasonable signs of potential drug dealing and possible pimping. They request the man stops running his engine all the time and ask him what he’s doing there. He is generally dismissive and states he is NOT a licensed taxi driver, but does jobs for his uncle

I love the book 1984. It's a great work of art which will outlive everyone who reads these words. However, it can become a millstone for those who read it, the inevitability of it all is bad for morale.

Hence I advocate "Orwell's Oversight".
I've pitched the concept in the broadest possible sense:

Any instance where the official line is publicly contradicted. Orwell suggested a society of citizens, constantly watched and controlled. Instead we live in a world where everyone is watched by everyone else.
1984 is a victim of its own success. A vision so compelling it has enchanted many, including those in positions of power, but to mistake it for reality is to live in an oppressive fiction.

Liberation is in the fact the internet's all-seeing-eye works both ways; we can see them.

¿Qué es el escándalo de #telfordgrooming ?

Una red de #ExplotaciónSexualInfantil manejada mayoritariamente por musulmanes, que se mantuvo activa a lo largo de 40 años, al amparo de las autoridades británicas.

A lo largo de ese tiempo, más de 1,000 menores de edad fueron explotadas, violadas, drogadas y violentadas. Los perpetradores han quedado impunes.

Al parecer, este horror, es apenas la parte visible del iceberg de la tradiconal apetencia británica por el #AbusoSexualInfantil
¿Qué opina el alcalde de Londres, #SadiqKhan -musulmán- sobre todo esto?

¿Cuál es la postura de #TheresaMay ?

¿Qué han dicho las #feministas inglesas?

¿Qué opinan las #feministas en general?

ÂżNo que #NiUnaMenos?

ÂżNo que #TodasSomosUna?

1) You can't understand . . .


until you understand that this is a part of Pakistani culture. Pakistan is one giant Rotherham, except boys are the victims since females are kept from the public square.
2) Of course not everyone in an ethnic group shares the same personality, but if enough people share a personality type or trait beyond a certain threshold, it tilts the culture in that direction.
3) There are court documents from ancient Greece suggesting they had this same nonchalant attitude.

That changed.

You couldn't re-institute this cultural practice among Euros - likely because European psychology has changed over past few thousand years.
