When the question was posed to the man of the cloth regarding how he thought the growing crime problem could be solved, he responded by calling it a million-dollar question.

Monsignor Anthony said that presently, no one has the answer to the question; otherwise, steps would have been taken towards getting the problem under control. On the other hand, he said if the nation as a whole comes together and uses collective wisdom, this will be a step in the right direction.

Talk with the young people, talk with the old people, talk with communities, talk with leaders and see what their thoughts are on what is causing the problem.

  1. It’s funny that all the talking heads only come out with the same old lines…”unity; conferences; consultation; research”…while actively working to divide the common man for the benefit of their masters – the princes of Mammon! Hypocrites and house slaves, all!

  2. To get deeper insight into Pabs’ handling of the “ticklish subject” in front of the Flow banner, one should visit the website,, and read a very provocative piece, titled, “Reviving the Spirit of Existential Rebellion in a World of Propaganda, Lies, and Self Deception”.

    I was taken by Edward Curtin citing Upton Sinclair’s “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on not understanding it.”

  3. Gather all the usual suspects, they all come with the same old boring message and sermon.
    No wonder the youth of today no longer listen and so, they don’t care.Not enough to stimulate
    There’s only one answer to today’s crime: Arse whipping with lolobeff – and for murder, the Noose.
    If you apply this formula, watch and see how fast the crime will diminish and soon back to normality
    Welcome back Nudge.

    Your “forward to the past” (reactionary) message makes you one of the usual suspects with the same old boring message and sermon!
