Whose responsibility : Government or Every one of Us

Two days ago (28th May, 2001), "Ming Pao Newspaper" reported a rape that happened in Hong Kong.

The victim was a 20 years old University Student. When she was walking along a road near her home, a man approached him with a knife, and took her to a tent, which the man had pitched earlier, and raped her. He videoed the whole process. After that, for THREE HOURS, he told the girls to pose various sex postures, and he took video continuously. The girl's mother happened to walk along that road too, and hearing the cry, she saw that her daughter was raped, she quickly rang the police, and the police caught the man.

Someone told the reporter that there is a black market for video of girls being raped, and to make a one hour video, usually, a three hours video tape has to be made.

Yesterday, the Police searched the man's house, and found 7 or 8 more tapes, all of girls being raped.

If you search the internet with keywords, "video, rape", you will find such rape video on sales on the Internet.

If you look at the newsgroup "alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.rape", you will see girls being raped, and their photos being put on the Internet.

Imagine yourself the one being raped, imagine the helplessness in your heart, imagine the boldness of your raper who would publish such on the Internet for everyone to see.

SHAME TO EVERY ONE OF US, THAT THE EVIL PEOPLE DARE TO PUT THE PHOTOS OF THEIR HEINOUS CRIME ON THE INTERNET, AND THE WHOLE WORLD DOES NOTHING !

Under the present day system, the Police is responsible for enforcing Law and Order. And the Police can really do little. Even if the raper is caught, and the girl willing to testify in court, and even if the raper is convicted, he will be free in a few years time.

Most often, Chinese girls would not testify in count. Imagine yourself being the victim. After reporting to the Police, you will be asked many questions by the police. Then you will be asked by the persecuting lawyers. Finally, you will be asked in court. If the defending lawyer is aggressive, and most probably he will, you will be asked a lot more questions. You will feel that you are the one who has committed crime, and not the raper. I have read about an article on rape trial, that questions like how far the "penis" had penetrated would be asked in order to convict.

Also, several days ago, I saw a TV program about cannibalism. A Japanese who lived in France shot dead her girl friend, then ate her for 5 days, putting her body in a refrigerator. A brain scan showed that the man's brain is abnormal, and the French Government sent him to a mental hospital. He was discharged soon afterwards, and repatriated to Japan. Japan Government let him go free, because there is nothing the legal system can do. The man is engaged in pornography business now, and is much praised by the black world of Japan for his boldness of eating woman's flesh.

The reporter showed the brain scan to another doctor, without telling him about the man, and tested the doctor if he can tell just from the brain scan. The doctor at once recognized it, and nodded when the reporter told him that the man cannibal-ed a girl. The doctor then asked "Are they still shutting him in ?" When told that the man is now free in Japan, he was shocked. The reporter re-assured him that she had interviewed the man in Japan, and the man told her that he is not to kill and eat girls any more. The doctor muttered twice, "I hope he will not."

I believe the doctor's judgment, and I think the man will kill and eat girls and will not stop. Imagine yourself falling into his hand, and he rape you and cut up your flesh and eat you, all the while the legislators and police are talking about "peace and security", and your neighbors are caring nothing but their own enjoyment.

Recorded in the Bible is a gang rape,

As they were making their hearts merry, behold, the men of the city, base fellows, beset the house round about, beating on the door; and they said to the old man, the master of the house, "Bring out the man who came into your house, that we may know him." And the man, the master of the house, went out to them and said to them, "No, my brethren, do not act so wickedly; seeing that this man has come into my house, do not do this vile thing. Behold, here are my virgin daughter and his concubine; let me bring them out now. Ravish them and do with them what seems good to you; but against this man do not do so vile a thing." But the men would not listen to him. So the man seized his concubine, and put her out to them, and they knew her, and abused her all night until the morning. ....

And her master rose up in the morning, and when he opened the doors of the house and went out to go on his way, behold there was his concubine lying at the door of the house, with her hands on the threshold. He said to her, "Get up, let us be going." But there was no answer. ...[Judges 19:22-30]


The man then did a right thing, he told all Israel about this,

Then he put her upon the ass; and the man rose up and went away to his home. And when he entered his house, he took a knife, and laying hold of his concubine he divided her, limb by limb, into twelve pieces, and sent her throughout all the territory of Israel.

The Israelites of old showed a high sense of social responsibility,

And all who saw it said, "Such a thing has never happened or been seen from the day that the people of Israel came out of the land of Egypt until this day; consider it, take counsel, and speak.

Then all the people of Israel came out, from Dan to Beer-sheba, including the land of Gilead, and the congregation assembled as one man to the LORD at Mizpah. And the chiefs of all the people, of all the tribes of Israel, presented themselves in the assembly of the people of GOD, four hundred thousand men on foot that drew the sword. (Now the Benjaminites heard that the people of Israel had gone up to Mizpah.) And the people of Israel said, "Tell us, how was this wickedness brought to pass?"

......

And the tribes of Israel sent men through all the tribe of Benjamin, saying, "What wickedness is this that has taken place among you? Now therefore give up the men, the base fellows in Gibeah, that we may put them to death, and put away evil from Israel." But the Benjaminites would not listen to the voice of their brethren, the people of Israel. And the Benjaminites came together out of the cities of Gibeah, to go out to battle against the people of Israel. ... [Judges 19, 20:1-15]


The Israelites were defeated by the Bengaminites twice. They inquired upon the LORD, and on the third time, LORD gave them victory and they defeated the Benjaminites.


And the men of Israel turned back against the Benjaminites, and smote them with the edge of the sword, men and beasts and all that they found. And all the towns which they found they set on fire. [Judges 20:48]

It was found that some Israelites had not responded to this heinous crime, and had not sent men to the Israelites to battle,


And they said, "What one is there of the tribes of Israel that did not come up to the LORD to Mizpah? And behold, no one had come to the camp from Jabesh-gilead, to the assembly. For when the people were mustered, behold, not one of the inhabitants of Jabesh-gilead was there. So the congregation sent thither twelve thousand of their bravest men, and commanded them, "Go and smite the inhabitants of Jabesh-gilead with the edge of the sword; also the women and the little ones. This is what you shall do; every male and every woman that has lain with a male you shall utterly destroy." [Judges 21:1-12]

The present day political system is inherited from the Roman's. The Roman system is evolved from the Greek System. The Greek System is evolved from the Media/Persia System under King Darius, the Media/Persia System is evolved from the Babylonian system under king Nebuchadnezzar.

LORD's system is described in the first 7 books of Old Testament (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, Judges), and China's ancient political system has certain resemblances to LORD's system.

Hence if one is to understand the present day political system better, he should pay attention to its evolution, and also LORD's system.

Under the present day system, responsibilities rest with the ministers, with the Government Departments, and the citizens seldom participate, except in some limited ways, e.g. cast a vote.

It is not so with the LORD's system : everyone is responsible for everything that happens within it. Hence a heinous rape is not the sole responsibility of the police, but of everyone. Every Israelites responded to the call to arm, and even if they were killed in large numbers in the first two battles, they did not become afraid and draw back. They inquired of LORD and battled the third time to rid the evil people.

LORD's system relies much on Moral Education, and the Law of God and Commandments of God is the sole foundation of this system. Hence education on a vast scale should be the first step towards change to LORD's system. If people are not willing to live according to the Law of GOD and His commandments (how would they live so if they do not know LORD's Laws and Commandments, how could they know if no one is willing to teach them), but choose a life style of no restraint and free veins of fleshy passions, there will not be LORD's system. Therefore, if you wish your child to live under LORD's system, you should take up the responsibility to obey LORD's Laws and Commandments first, and also to educate your neighbours.

The "teaching Levites and teaching Priests" are responsible for Moral Education, one tenth of the people should do nothing but educate the people in Moral.

The civil-servants of 10, of 100, of 1000, ... and the chief civil servant should be responsible for the material well-being of the people. They are to coordinate welfare and civil and infrastructure work. They are to give counsels mainly, the responsibility rests with the whole congregation. The chief civil servant and the chief priests are the two most important persons in LORD's system. LORD told Moses to choose Aaron, his brother, to be chief priest. King David chose his brothers/sons to be teaching priests. There must be peaceful understanding between the two persons for the system to work. (Note : my understanding is based on my reading the Bible, hence there must be short-comings, as a Political System is not a simple thing, please see the newsletters of "National Center for Constitutional Studies" in order to appreciate some.)

About everyday affairs, it is up to the congregation, and on occasions, on the leaders themselves,

Make two silver trumpets; of hammered work you shall make them; and you shall use them for summoning the congregation, and for breaking camp. And when both are blown, all the congregation shall gather themselves to you at the entrance of the tent of meeting. But if they blow only once, then the leaders, the heads of tribes of Israel, shall gather themselves to you. [Num 10:1-4]

LORD is King in LORD's system. And the chief civil servant, chief priests and people , when they hold discussions, should firmly remember LORD and pray to LORD for guidance.

The present day system where people are barred from caring is cursed by LORD,


Woe to those who lie upon beds of ivory, and stretch themselves upon their couches, and eat lambs from the flock, and calves from the midst of the stall; who sing idle songs to the sound of the harp, and like David invent for themselves instruments of music; who drink wine in bowls, and anoint themselves with the finest oils, but are not grieved over the ruin of Joseph! [Amos 6:1-8]


P.S.

I wrote this webpage sometimes ago. Today, I recheck the newsgroup "alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.rape" and find that much has disappeared. The first time I visited that, there were many many photos of girls being raped.

"alt.binaries.pictures.erotica.torture" is another newsgroup. Sometimes ago, I saw photos of many girls being tortured -- whom I thought to be girls captured by the girl-traffickers. Again, when I visit it this time, I found very few.

Secret Alliance is very good at concealing things ("Damage Control"). The diminishing of photos of girls being raped or tortured in talk-groups does not mean rapes and tortures have diminished. Much evil are hidden from our eyes.
