    great piece. and I like the humour too. ” …I know because when I
    look around in this messy bin, I see
    you and just about all our friends.”
    u couldn’t have said it any better.

    Very well said, Ben. The new ‘normal’of our generation is becoming appalling. And as lights of the world, if we don’t stand up and shine out the darkness, we’ll all be consumed by it.

      I’d hate to be consumed by any kind of darkness J, we should do all we can to redefine the ‘new normal’, in our own small ways.

    Chinua Achebe was certainly right, things have indeed fallen apart but there’s more hope. We’ve got to stand out.

    The question here is Can you & I give it a shot? Can we try? We must not miss that. When you do your little in your corner & I do likewise, this post will indeed be great.

    Hmmm. You are so right. But the thing is when you point it out you’ll be called uptight and told to get off your moral highhorse. That we’ve gleefully accepted these things when me know it’s wrong. No one likes to be spoken to about immorality anymore. Pleasing our sensual desires has become are driving force. Some even use evolutionary psychology to justify it, meanwhile we’re supposedly sanctified. Hmmm. What can we do? It’s easy to fall for such things when it’s seen as “normal”. The new normal someone said. Till we put doing right before our selfish pleasure nothing will change
