Police state? I'm still thinking!

The latest bunch of moronic menaces to trample on our wellbeing as a nation are those snoopers from Cambridgeshire County Council. These jobsworths give the Stasi the look of incompetence! They seem to revel in snooping, being underhand and generally causing the rest of us to think the worst.

Shame on Cambridgeshire County Council. The lot of them!

Nobody has apologised. They think this behaviour is normal. Well it is not. They used anti-terror legislation to prey on a shopkeeper who has employed paper boys without a valid permit.

Instead of using common sense, they act like they are control freaks. Common sense would have suggested that the council sends an officer round to see the shopkeeper to warn them of an infringement and then, polititely, say that any future infringements may result in prosecution. That would be the common sense way.

However, we live under the New Priggery Party's rule, which encourages jobsworths like those at Cambridgeshire County Council not to employ common sense. Instead, they gladly use anti-terrorism laws to crack down on hapless shopkeepers, to spy on them from cars and to shove them through the courts willy-nilly. So another criminal record, another person done down by the new order.

Get a life Cambridgeshire County Council. We do not like your ways! Andrew Lansley, the Conservative MP for South Cambridgeshire, is quite right to say, "These powers should only be used for the scope they were intended, which is to tackle serious crime and terrorism." The trouble is we have a hopeless Home Secretary and a government that wallows in these kinds of attacks on people.

From the website, "Cambridgeshire County Council's community and living pages focus on citizen's interests". Question is - Do they really?


The missing element in every human 'solution' is
an accurate definition of the creature.

In an effort to diminish the multiple and persistent
dangers and abuses which have characterized the
affairs of man in his every Age, and to assist in the
requisite search for human identity, it is essential to
perceive and specify that distinction which naturally
and most uniquely defines the human being.

Because definitions rule in the minds, behaviors, and
institutions of men, we can be confident that delineating
and communicating that quality will assist the process
of resolution and the courageous ascension to which
man is called. As Americans of the 21st Century, we are
obliged and privileged to join our forebears and participate
in this continuing paradigm proclamation.

"WHAT IS MAN...?" God asks - and answers:

The way we define 'human' determines our view of self,
others, relationships, institutions, life, and future. Many
problems in human experience are the result of false
and inaccurate definitions of humankind premised
in man-made religions and humanistic philosophies.

Human knowledge is a fraction of the whole universe.
The balance is a vast void of human ignorance. Human
reason cannot fully function in such a void; thus, the
intellect can rise no higher than the criteria by which it
perceives and measures values.

Humanism makes man his own standard of measure.
However, as with all measuring systems, a standard
must be greater than the value measured. Based on
preponderant ignorance and an egocentric carnal
nature, humanism demotes reason to the simpleton
task of excuse-making in behalf of the rule of appe-
tites, desires, feelings, emotions, - and glands.

Because man, hobbled in an ego-centric predicament,
cannot invent criteria greater than himself, the humanist
lacks a predictive capability. Thus, his man-made criteria
rises no higher than eyebrows - and too often, no higher
than pubic hair! Without instinct or transcendent criteria,
humanism cannot evaluate options with foresight and
vision for progression and survival. Lacking foresight,
man is blind to potential consequence and is unwittingly
committed to mediocrity, collectivism, averages, and re-
gression - and worse. Humanism is an unworthy worship.

The void of human ignorance can easily be filled with
a functional faith while not-so-patiently awaiting the
foot-dragging growth of human knowledge and behav-
ior. Faith, initiated by the Creator and revealed and
validated in His Word, the Bible, brings a transcend-
ent standard to man the choice-maker. Other philo-
sophies and religions are man-made, humanism, and
thereby lack what only the Bible has:

1.Transcendent Criteria and
2.Fulfilled Prophetic Validation.

The vision of faith in God and His Word is survival
equipment for today and the future. Only the Creator,
who made us in His own image, is qualified to define
us accurately.

Human is earth's Choicemaker. Psalm 25:12 He is by
nature and nature's God a creature of Choice - and of
Criteria. Psalm 119:30,173 His unique and definitive
characteristic is, and of Right ought to be, the natural
foundation of his environments, institutions, and re-
spectful relations to his fellow-man. Thus, he is orien-
ted to a Freedom whose roots are in the Order of the
universe. selah
