Allowing Conscientious Objections is the Hallmark of a
Even in the darkest days of World War 2 Conscientious Objectors were exempt from military service. However, today people are not allowed to have a conscience especially where issues of abortion homosexuality and loyalty to their faith are concerned.
A hallmark of a civilised society is to protect at all times objections by individuals to carrying out actions on the grounds of conscience. One example of this was during the darkest days of World War 2. Conscientious Objectors were exempted from military service. We also have the Nuremburg war trial that confirmed this. Yet this freedom has now gone, this important element of a free and democratic nation has been removed in a twinkling of eye.
Midwife and nurses who through their religious believes get the sack for not wanting to participate in abortions. Other Christians lose their jobs again through their religious beliefs for not agreeing to officiate over same sex partnerships. Others are not allowed to wear symbols of their Christian believes at work. Teachers are reprimanded with the possibility of losing their job because they don’t want to teach what is fundamentally against their Christian faith. Moslems and Christian parents are threatened when they object to school curriculum that attacks their religion. The list is endless and the numbers who are also rendered afraid of exercising their conscience becomes greater everyday. The great lie is we live in a free society. We don’t, we live in a society that permits freedom to only those who agree with the current stand made by the politicians and media.
This is where the so-called Orwellian ‘Nu –Speak comes in. We have for instance a Court of European Rights. It is of course totally the opposite for anyone exercising his or her conscience, what that court does is quickly to stamp on anyone who does not conform to the current social agenda dictated by the politicians. The same also goes from the British judiciary. We once prided ourselves on an independent judiciary protecting those of us who acting on our ethical or religious conscience, from observing recent court cases that has been swept away. The other great illusion fostered by the media is how we live in a “tolerant society”. Tolerant for those who doggedly follow the line of the media giants or the political classes , but ruthlessly intolerant for those whose opinions differ from them.
The future at least in Europe is bleak for those wishing to exercise their conscience. Soon children will report to the schools the views of their parents and grand parents and whether they conform to present social legislation. Foster parents will not be allowed to have a religion. Schoolteachers will be very carefully monitored to ensure they show not even the slightest element of religious belief. In places of work human resource teams will weed out those who express any religious conviction for either therapy or dismissal. Nurses and doctors will certainly not be allowed any form of conscientious objections to procedures demanded of them.

To ensure that the system is enforced against conscientious objectors there will be an enormous pyramid of power. At the top will be the Court of Human Rights then the local judiciary, the lower echelons will consist of the Police and social workers. Local authorities and a myriad of government and non-government officials will provide an efficient administration and co-ordination service. This will be the main priority in terms of their workload. These will be re-enforced by the powerful media of TV, computers and newspapers. Most of this scenario is already in place. It will shortly be completed.
