Power that counts

Yesterday we saw how DCI Banks was able to save his daughter from the clutches of a criminal.

He was in a position to take direct action because as a police officer he actually could pursue and arrest the criminal, who abducted, drugged and imprisoned his daughter, so that an associate criminal could put pressure on the DCI to let vital evidence disappear so that his daughter could be set free.

It was a clever script of emotional bond and professional conduct.

For the vast majority of people, we are completely powerless when it comes to saving kids from the clutches of criminals. Because kids can make their own decisions and it is against the law to stop a young person from making their own choices, normal parents have no power to interrupt the relationship between people.

A parent can’t save a child from involvement with criminals without getting involved themselves. But getting involved without lawful purpose puts a person on the wrong side of the law. The average person just can watch and hope for the best.

All parents can do these days is actually give advice and offer support but how far that support can go is also quite restricted. It all depends how far a child is involved in crime.

The old saying it takes one to know one still holds water.

Emotional conundrum

whilst I do a few blogs, I explain another time, why I can’t write about everything on the same blog, I get the most followers on this blog. On this blog I write mainly about personal things.

I spend a lot of time watchng detective stories and listening to the radio at the moment.

There is one for the trick box. Whilst radio channels mainly tell us how much we need to be close to others to be happy, the Covid-19 brigade tell us that we need to be apart. Hence we get a new lot of demonstrations around town.

Whilst now even the police describe themselves as a family, when one of them sadly has been killed in the line of duty, I watch detective stories from around the world. Anywhere from Sweden to Australia, the motive for crime is almost always the same, it’s emotional.

Even material greed is based on emotional need, the need to control others through wealth and property.

So I decided to listen to chat radio channels instead of lstening to music that asks me to get a partner or be unhappy forever.

Now on LBC this guy, sorry I’m bad with names, he goes on about right-wing bloggers who spew out conspiracy theories to keep Trump in. Trump, the King of Fake news.

I just ask you all to be more analytical to prevent emotional mechanisms to take over our lifes and encourage us to make bad decisions.

Of course we all have to live within the given rules, the rules made by those who rule but that is the same everywhere.

We all have to put up with a load of nonsense just to get roofs over our heads and food into our mouths.

Probably that’s why I watch so many detective stories because most detectives actually want to find out the truth. Unfortunately detectives only come into play once someone’s gotten murdered. What we really need are life detectives who try to find out about things truthfully without anybody being killed first.

But governments who are in charge of us do not have the knowledge or the power to turn things around. They can only administer.
