HOLLYWOOD MOVIES- THE PORTRAYAL OF X-RAYS- WRONG FOR SO LONG! TIME TO GET CORRECTED IF YOUR INTENT IS TO ENTERTAIN AS WELL AS TO EDUCATE. HERE’S WHY? TAKE A LOOK AT AN EXAMPLE OF A CHEST X-RAY PLACEMENT ABOVE SEEN IN SO MANY OF YOUR FILMS. NOTE: THE ISSUE HERE IS PLACEMENT PORTRAYAL, NOT DIAGNOSIS. I WILL EXPLAIN!

EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK(c) DIAGNOSTIC DISCUSSIONS- RAS CARDO

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE –   AND WITH THE INTENT AND KNOWLEDGE TO EDUCATE THE PUBLIC IN THE ART AND SCIENCE OF THE RADIOLOGY/DIAGNOSTIC IMAGING PROFESSION OF RADIOLOGISTS AND RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGISTS EVERYWHERE.

I SPEAK AS AN INDEPENDENT CONCERNED PROFESSIONAL VOICE.

THOSE CONCERNED CAN SEE SOME OF MY WORK AT WWW.ALLEXPERTS.COM

CAVEAT: THOSE WHO WORK WITH PRIDE AND DIGNITY IN THEIR PROFESSION OF RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGY OFTEN WONDER WHY HOLLYWOOD SHOWS SUCH CARELESS, NEGLIGENT, AND WANTON( unrestrained) DISREGARD IN THE PORTRAYAL OF THEIR WORKS.

THIS IS A TIME WHEN MOST PEOPLE HAVE THEIR EYES AND EARS WIDE OPEN TO SEE, QUESTION, AND TO LEARN WHAT IS RIGHT FROM THAT WHICH IS WRONG. THEY NEED TO KNOW AND WILL SEEK TRUTH.

HOLLYWOOD AND THE MOVIES HAS HAD A PROFOUND EFFECT ON THE WAYS PEOPLE THINK AND FEEL IN OUR SOCIETY.

SHOWS SUCH AS- ER, HOUSE, UNTOLD STORIES OF THE ER, BONES, SCRUBS, ETC HAVE DONE THEIR BEST TO ENTERTAIN AS WELL AS IN SOME ASPECTS – TO EDUCATE THE PEOPLE.

MY PURPOSE HERE IS NOT TO CRITICIZE NOR SPEAK NEGATIVELY OF ANY MOVIE, INDIVIDUAL, PRODUCER OR NETWORK. IT IS SIMPLY TO SHOW AN ASPECT OF RADIOLOGY TECHNOLOGY WORK AND IMAGE PLACEMENT IN MOVIES THAT HAVE BEEN DONE WRONG FOR SO LONG, AND TO HOPE THAT IT WILL BE CORRECTED BY THOSE WHO ARE CHARGED WITH NOT ONLY THE DUTY TO ENTERTAIN, BUT TO EDUCATE.

TAKE A LOOK AT THE IMAGE OF A CHEST X-RAY SHOWN ABOVE. THIS IS NOT TAKEN FROM ANY OF THEIR MOVIES, BUT REPRESENTS AN EXAMPLE OF THOSE SHOWN IN THEM.

SURELY, THIS MAY REPRESENT THE WAY THE PATIENT WAS POSITIONED FOR THE EXAM, BUT IT IS NOT THE WAY THE FINISHED PRODUCT IS PLACED FOR READING, TAKING OTHER FACTORS INTO CONSIDERATION.

RADIOLOGIC TECHNOLOGISTS/ RADIOLOGISTS HAVE A DUTY AND A RESPONSIBILITY TO MAKE SURE THAT X-RAYS ARE DONE CORRECTLY ON THE RIGHT PATIENT, THAT THE PART X-RAYED IS CORRECTLY MARKED AND INDENTIFIED, THAT THE PERSON WHO DOES THE X-RAYS HAVE PLACED THEIR IDENTIFICATION MARKERS ON IT,AND THAT THE TECHNICAL FACTORS OF RADIATION AND THE PROTECTION OF THE PATIENT ARE SECURELY CARRIED OUT.

THESE STRINGENT FACTORS AND MORE MUST, AT ALL TIMES BE MAINTAINED, AND EXECUTED IN THE PERFORMANCE OF THEIR RADIOLOGIC DUTIES. THERE SHOULD BE NO ROOM FOR ERROR.

LET ME NOW GO TO THE OBJECT OF THIS ISSUE:

THE CHEST X-RAY IS ONE OF THE MOST REQUESTED FORMS OF X-RAYS IN MEDICINE. MOST X-RAYS ARE USUALLY DONE WITH THE PATIENT IN THE-PA POSITION- MEANING THAT THE X-RAY SOURCE IS BEHIND THE PATIENT AND THE RAYS TRAVERSE A PATH FROM THE BACK ( POSTERIOR) ASPECT OF THE PATIENT TO THE ANTERIOR(FRONT).  THIS IS USUALLY DONE AT A DISTANCE OF 6 FEET.

IT MUST BE NOTED THAT AT TIMES IT WILL BE NECESSARY TO DO THE X-RAY IN THE – STANDARD ANATOMICAL POSITION- WITH THE PATIENT FACING THE OPERATOR(X-RAY TECH), AND THE X-RAY TUBE.

WHEN THE X-RAY IS LATER PLACED FOR VIEWING AND FOR RADIOLOGIC INTERPRETATION BY THE RADIOLOGIST, CERTAIN FACTORS MUST BE SEEN TO HAVE BEEN MET IN THE WAY THE IMAGE WAS DONE AS TO DEPARTMENT PROTOCOLS. THE RADIOLOGIST HAS A DUTY TO INFORM THE TECHNOLOGIST AS TO ANY DEFICIENCIES AND TO DEMAND A REPEAT IF NECESSARY BEFORE THE PATIENT LEAVES THE FACILITY. IT MUST BE CAREFULLY NOTED THAT:

IN CONVENTIONAL READING, THIS X-RAY WOULD BE FLIPPED FROM THE READERS LEFT TO RIGHT( WERE IT MARKED CORRECTLY WITH LEFT AND RIGHT MARKERS) SHOWN ON IT. THIS WOULD BRING IT IN LINE WITH THE ANATOMICAL POSITION OF THE PATIENT STANDING FACING THE READING RADIOLOGIST, PALMS OF HANDS FORWARD AND OPEN. IT IS A KNOWN MEDICAL FACT THAT THE LEFT VENTRICULAR VIEW OF THE HEART POINTS LEFT IN MOST PEOPLE, AND THERE ARE A FEW VARIATIONS ON THIS NORMAL.

RADIOLOGY HAS MOVED FROM -” THE OLD SCHOOL INTO THE -NEW SCHOOL AGE”. WE NOW HAVE TECHNOLOGY WHICH IN SOME WAYS WILL MAKE CARELESSNESS A FACTOR FOR ALL THOSE WHO LACK THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL SO NECESSARY IN THIS REGARD. DIGITAL IMAGING IN MEDICINE IS NOW THE DESIRED CHOICE WHICH HAS MADE CERTAIN PROCEDURES OBSOLETE. I WILL NOT HAVE THE TIME TO GO INTO THE DETAILS OF ALL THIS.

I WILL SAY THIS BASIC AND CUSTOMARY TRUTH IN RADIOLOGY:

IMAGES ARE READ AS IF THE PATIENT IS STANDING BEFORE YOU, FACING YOU, WITH PALMS OF HAND TOWARDS YOU, IN THE -ANATOMICAL POSITION. THIS HAS FOLLOWED A LONG STANDING CUSTOMARY CONVENTION IN THE READING OF RADIOGRAPHS. BODY LANDMARKS AS TO WHAT IS- POSTERIOR, ANTERIOR, SUPERIOR, INFERIOR, LATERAL, SUPEROINFERIOR, SAGITTAL, CORONAL, AXILLARY, LEFT OR RIGHT OF MIDLINE, ABDUCT, OPEN OR CLOSED, UPRIGHT, PRONE ,OR SUPINE, ETC. MUST BE SHOWN.

WITHOUT A CAREFULLY MARKED IMAGE WHICH MEETS ALL THE TECHNICAL REQUIREMENTS OF A COMPLETED RADIOGRAPH, THE RISK OF MISINTERPRETATION AND MISDIAGNOSIS LAYS IMMINENT. THIS IS NEVER ACCEPTABLE.

THE X-RAY ABOVE HAS NO MARKERS AS TO WHICH SIDE OF PATIENT IS LEFT OR RIGHT. IT IS DISPLAYED FOR VIEWING IN SUCH A WAY WHICH SHOWS THE LEFT SIDE OF THE HEART POINTING TO THE READERS  LEFT WITHOUT ANY MARKERS TO THE CONTRARY. THE READING RADIOLOGIST IS LEFT TO QUESTION -DOES THIS PATIENT HAVE A DEXTROCARDIA WITH SITUS INVERSUS OR A CARDIAC HETEROTAXIA? SO MANY UNANSWERED QUESTIONS WILL ARISE BEFORE A COMPLETE IMPRESSION AND MEDICAL INTERPRETATION  REPORT CAN BE MADE.

A SICK PATIENT WILL BE FILLED WITH THE ANXIETY TO KNOW WHAT THE RESULTS OF THEIR TESTS ARE AND RIGHTLY SO. THIS JUSTIFIED ANXIETY AND THE DELAY IN THE REPORTING OF TIMELY X-RAY RESULTS TO PATIENTS ARE STILL A MUCH CAUSE FOR GRAVE CONCERN IN RADIOLOGICAL MEDICINE AND HOLLYWOOD IN SOME WAY FANS THE FLAMES OF THAT.

WHAT ONE SEES WILL HAVE A PROFOUND EFFECT ON WHAT THEY WILL BELIEVE AND TRUST OR MISTRUST.

IT IS MY WISH THAT IF HOLLYWOOD PORTRAYS IT CORRECTLY, THEN THE ANXIOUS PUBLIC WILL BE RIGHTLY INFORMED, IF NOT ENTERTAINED. THIS IS OUR DUTY AND OBLIGATION.

KNOW BEFORE YOU GO TO X-RAY OR THE MOVIES AND WHAT TO DO AFTER.

I AM HERE TO HELP FOR THE SAFETY OF THE PEOPLE. LET’S DO IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME, EVERYTIME.

I AM RAS CARDO REGGAE EDUCATION FOR A HEALING OF THE NATION. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY. SHARING AND CARING!

REGGAE’S INFLUENCE AND IMPACT ON AMERICA. WHO CAN DENY? I SPEAK WITHOUT PREJUDICE. THIS IS TRUTH.NO APOLOGIES. WHY WOULD THE GRAMMY’S SEEK TO GIVE AN AWARD TO SOME REGGAE ARTISTS? WHY WOULD THEY STILL STRUGGLE WITH THE TRUTH THAT REGGAE CAME FROM TRENCH TOWN, AND WAS THE CREATION OF MYSELF AND JUNIOR BRAITHWAITE, WITH THE TRENCH TOWN COMMUNITY OF PEOPLES? WHY ARE THEY RELUCTANT AND AFRAID TO SEEK AND CONTEST THE TRUTH CHALLENGES THAT I HAVE SENT THEM? REGGAE AND RASTAFARI HAS INFLUENCED AMERICA AND ITS MUSIC IN WAYS WHICH SPEAKS VOLUMES AND I, RAS CARDO HAS THE FACTS TO PROVE AND SHOW IT. FOR THE MANY YOUTHS WHO NOW WEAR THEIR LOCKS WITH PRIDE IN THE REGGAE MESSAGES OF RASTAFARI, WHOSE INFLUENCE IS IT? THOSE IN THE INDUSTRY OF MUSIC WOULD LIKE TO SELECT ONLY BOB MARLEY AND PETER TOSH WEARING THEIR LOCKS AND SINGING REGGAE MUSIC, WHILE IGNORING THE TRUTH TO ALL THOSE REGGAE MESSENGERS WHO KEEPS THE MESSAGE ALIVE FOR ALL THE WORLD TO SEE. BOB MARLEY, PETER TOSH, JOE HIGGS, AND OTHERS WERE MY STUDENTS IN RESIDENCE IN TRENCH TOWN. NOTHING WILL EVER CHANGE THAT! REGARDLESS OF WHAT AMERICA SAYS, MY REGGAE MUSIC HAS NOW SHOWN THE WORLD THE MESSAGES AND INFLUENCE OF WHAT IT IS ALL ABOUT- ONE LOVE FOR ALL THE PEOPLE. JAH PEOPLE! NO OTHER MUSIC FORCE HAS EVER SHOWN THAT, AND CHANGED A CULTURE BY CHANGING A WORD( Streggae to reggae), AND A BEAT WHICH CHANGED THE WORLD. THIS IS NOT AN ISSUE UP FOR ANY DEBATE. THE FACTS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES. WERE I NOT HERE TO SHOW THIS TRUTH TO THE WORLD, THEY WOULD HAVE BEEN DECEIVED AND MISLED AS TO WHAT OUR PURPOSE AND TRUE MESSAGE FOR PEACE AND LOVE IS. MY WORKS AND CREDITS GO FOR THE PEOPLE. IT IS FOR JAH PEOPLE I LOVE. IT IS FOR JAH PEOPLE I WORK! IT IS FOR JAH PEOPLE I SERVE!. IT IS FOR JAH PEOPLE I LIVE! JAH LIVES! RASTAFARI LIVES! RASTAFARI IS! THE TRUTH. (c) RAS CARDO REGGAE EDUCATION. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED GLOBALLY.

THERE ARE SOME GOOD NURSES OUT THERE- HERE IS ONE THAT THE WORLD SHOULD KNOW ABOUT- MS. DONNA SMITH, R.N.- JANET SCOTT WELCOMES AND PROFILES AN EXEMPLARY HEALTH PROFESSIONAL. ALL TOO OFTEN WE FORGET THOSE WHO WORK TIRELESSLY TO CARE FOR THE SICK. NURSES WHO TRULY CARE ABOUT OTHERS IS JANET’S MISSION TO SHOWCASE TO THE WORLD THESE PROFESSIONALS WHO GO BEYOND THE CALL OF DUTY TO HELP OTHERS. DONNA IS SEEN HERE ON THE RIGHT WITH JANET FOR A MOMENT IN CARE WHICH SENDS A MESSAGE OF HOPE AND RESPECT. DONNA GREETS WITH A SMILE, RESPECT AND A VERY COMPASSIONATE DEMEANOR MAKING THOSE WHO ARE ILL KNOW THAT THEY ARE IN THE BEST OF HANDS. JOIN ME IN HONORING THIS SPECIAL NURSE.

LISTEN! THE HEALTH INSURANCE SYSTEM IN THIS COUNTRY- STINKS! I SAY THIS WITHOUT PREJUDICE AND WITH DEEP REGRETS AND SADNESS FOR THE MANY SICK PEOPLE WHO ARE CAUGHT IN A CESSPOOL SYSTEM OF INSURERS USING AND MANIPULATING- THE FEDERAL PARITY LAW- TO DENY PATIENTS GETTING PROPER MEDICAL CARE ESPECIALLY FROM SPECIALISTS. THE SPECIALISTS THEMSELVES HAVE OVERBOOKED THEIR SCHEDULES TO SUCH A DEGREE THAT SERIOUSLY URGENT CASES HAVE TO WAIT WEEKS, IF NOT MONTHS TO GET A CHANCE TO SEE THEM. THE REALLY GOOD SPECIALISTS HAVE REMOVED THEMSELVES FROM THE ACCESS OF THE ORDINARY/AVERAGE PATIENT. PEOPLE ARE SUFFERING, AND HURTING AT ALL LEVELS, AND THE MENTAL HEALTH PARITY AND ADDICTION EQUITY ACT OF 2008(MHPAEA) DOES NOT STOP GROUP HEALTH PLANS AND HEALTH INSURERS FROM IMPOSING-LESS FAVORABLE BENEFIT LIMITATIONS ON SURGICAL/MEDICAL BENEFITS. INSURANCE COMPANIES ARE REFUSING TO GIVE PATIENTS THE MEDICAL PROCEDURES NECESSARY TO EFFECTIVELY DIAGNOSE AND TREAT THEIR CONDITIONS. I CAN ONLY SEE IT GETTING WORSE IN A CLIMATE OF THIS OPIOD EPIDEMIC, AND A TIME FOR THE INSURANCE COMPANIES TRYING TO GET YOUR BUSINESS. IT HAS BECOME HARDER FOR SICK PEOPLE TO GET EVEN A SEMBLANCE OF GOOD CARE. SOME PROVIDERS HAVE INSTRUCTED THEIR OFFICE STAFF TO SCREEN OUT THOSE WHOSE INSURANCE DOES NOT SUIT THEIR REIMBURSEMENT PURPOSE. THE PROSPECTIVE PATIENT WOULD NEVER KNOW THAT THEY ARE DENIED ACCESS TO CARE IN THIS REGARD. THIS TYPE OF DISCRIMINATION IS HARD TO PROVE. POOR PEOPLE AND THOSE IN RURAL AREAS SUFFER THE MOST. MY PREDICTION IS THIS: SO MUCH MAD PEOPLE GETTING READY TO EXPLODE. IT MUST BE NOTED THAT- THE MHPAEA DOES NOT REQUIRE LARGE GROUP INSURERS TO COVER-MH/SUD BENEFITS. HOWEVER, MEDICAL NECESSITY DETERMINATIONS AND REASONS FOR DENIALS ARE NOT ALWAYS DISCLOSED TO THE SICK PATIENTS , AND SOME INSURERS ARE EXEMPT FROM SUCH A RULE. THE SICK INDIVIDUAL IS THUS PLACED IN A MOST ONEROUS SITUATION WHILE THEIR LIFE IS ON THE LINE. COMPLIANCE TO THE LAW IS NOT WHAT SOME INSURERS AND PROVIDERS PLAN TO DO.

# STREGGAE TO REGGAE. HERE IS WHAT MUST BE DONE TO HELP YOUNG GIRLS AND WOMEN IN SOCIETY. I WILL SHARE MY INITIATIVES MOVING FORWARD WITH A SOLUTION. MY -(C)”CHANGE A WORD, CHANGE A CULTURE”- CAN HELP. HERE IS HOW. SWEEPING CHANGES MUST BE MADE NOW! THERE IS NO TIME TO WAIT! A WOMAN’S MANIFESTO!

EXCERPT (c) STREGGAE TO REGGAE- CHANGE A WORD, CHANGE A CULTURE- RAS CARDO REGGAE.

WRITTEN WITHOUT PREJUDICE, MALICE OR HATE.

CAVEAT :  WE MUST KEEP IN MIND THE IMPORTANCE OF SPEAKING THE TRUTH.

WHAT I WILL TELL YOU HERE YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN NOR HEARD BEFORE.

THIS IS ORIGINAL AND PRECEDENT SETTING. IT IS A WOMAN’S MANIFESTO.

IN JAMAICA WE HAVE SOME WOMEN WHO MEN WOULD DARE TO DISRESPECT.

THESE WOMEN WE HAVE DESCRIBED WITH THE COLLOQUIALISM-“WOE TO MEN”!

WHEN WE SPEAK OF SEXUAL HARASSMENT IN THE WORKPLACE IT IS IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER THE DIFFERENT DYNAMICS INVOLVED. I HAVE KNOWN BY MY OWN RESEARCH THAT WOMEN IN THE WORKPLACE ARE USUALLY MORE ADVERSARIAL AGAINST OTHER WOMEN THAN THEY WOULD BE AGAINST MEN. WOMEN, BY THEIR VERY NATURE WILL PROTECT AND DEFEND THEIR- “LOVE INTEREST” SOMETIMES BLINDLY WITHOUT EXAMINING THE CONSEQUENCES. THIS RUSH TO JUDGMENT BEHAVIOR WILL ALWAYS COMPOUND A PROBLEM EMOTIONALLY CHARGED WITHOUT REGARDS TO TRUTH. MEN WILL OFTEN USE THIS AS A SIGN OF WEAKNESS AS THEY PURSUE THEIR OWN -LOVE INTEREST- IN AN ALREADY HOSTILE ENVIRONMENT, AND IF THEY ARE THE BOSS- GUESS WHO WINS?

THESE ARE SOME OF MY ORIGINAL METHODS AND SOURCES USED TO CHANGE A CULTURE WHICH ANATHEMATIZED WOMEN AS SEEN DURING MY YOUTH IN JAMAICA, AND FROM WHICH DROVE ME TO CHANGE A NEGATIVELY STIGMATIZED WORD TO  A CHANGING OF THE CULTURE NOT ONLY IN JAMAICA BUT THE ENTIRE WORLD.

I CHANGED” STREGGAE INTO REGGAE.”

HERE ARE THE MANDATES AND PRECEPTS WHICH MUST BE INTRODUCED AND STRICTLY ADHERED TO:

1. ALL WOMEN, YOUNG AND OLD MUST HAVE REASON AND FULL ASSURANCE TO KNOW THAT THERE ARE MEN IN SOCIETY TO WHOM THEY CAN RUN TO, FEEL SAFE,  AND TO SHARE THEIR TRUE FEELINGS AND SUSPICIONS IN CASES WHERE ATTEMPTS HAVE BEEN MADE BY MEN TO SEXUALLY VIOLATE THEM. THEY SHOULD NOT HAVE TO FEEL THAT SPEAKING OUT WILL COST THEM THEIR JOB OR CAREER.

2. THE EXISTING SYSTEM, CONTROLLED BY MEN, IN A REVOLVING DOOR, POSITION OF POWER AND INFLUENCE WHICH MAKES IT IMPOSSIBLE FOR WOMEN TO TRUST, AND FEAR TO EXPRESS THEIR CONCERNS OF OFTEN CLOSED DOOR ENCOUNTERS BY MEN- MUST BE ABOLISHED!

3. THIS IS VERY SAD FOR ME TO SAY- BUT YOUNG GIRLS AND WOMEN HAVE BEEN A SORT OF -“ENDANGERED SPECIES’- IN OUR SOCIETIES FOR A VERY , VERY LONG TIME, AND NOTHING HAS BEEN DONE TO CHANGE THAT. THIS CANNOT CONTINUE.

4. MEN MUST COME TO KNOW, OR BE COMPELLED TO KNOW THAT WHEN A WOMAN SAY NO TO AN ADVANCEMENT – SHE SERIOUSLY MEANS NO! WHICH WILL BE FOLLOWED BY SERIOUS CONSEQUENCES IF NOT RESPECTED. FOR TOO LONG MEN HAVE TAKEN A WOMAN’S- NO- TO MEAN-“YES”. THEY FAIL TO TAKE HER SERIOUSLY. IT IS MOST UNFORTUNATE FOR WOMEN AS THIS PLAYS INTO THE MEDICAL AFFAIRS OF WOMEN WHO ARE SICK AND COMPLAIN OF -“CHEST PAINS” WHICH ARE TAKEN AS” EMOTIONALLY CHARGED” BY MOST MALE MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS. MANY WOMEN HAVE DIED FROM A FAILURE TO DIAGNOSE AND TREAT BASED ON A BEHAVIORAL MENTALITY OF MEDICAL PROFESSIONALS. THIS MUST CHANGE!

5. FOR LONG WE HAVE HAD – A MALE DOMINATED SOCIETY- WHERE THE AFFAIRS AND CONCERNS OF WOMEN WERE RELEGATED TO THE KITCHEN AND HOME CARE OF THE FAMILY. IN MOST CASTE SOCIETIES WOMEN STILL DO NOT HAVE A VOICE. THIS MUST CHANGE.

6. WHEN WE SPEAK OF FAIRNESS, THERE IS NOTHING FAIR ABOUT MEN WANTING TO VIOLATE OTHER WOMEN, WHILE VICIOUSLY PROTECTING AND DEFENDING THEIR OWN MOTHERS, DAUGHTERS, NIECES FROM VIOLATION BY OTHER MEN.

7.SOCIETY HAS A WAY OF DEVELOPING AND ENCOURAGING CERTAIN CULTURAL BEHAVIORS IN MEN AND WOMEN FUELED BY INFOMERCIALS AND OTHER- IN YOUR FACE COMMERCIALS- TO THE POINT OF SUBLIMINALLY INFLICTING HARM TO ONE’S PSYCHE, THEN, WHEN HARM HAS BEEN DONE TRYING TO RELY ON -EXPERTS TO TELL THEM WHERE THEY HAVE GONE WRONG.

8. LISTEN! THE CULTURE OF MEN HAS BEEN SUCH THAT WE HAD ACCEPTED THIS LEWD , SLACK, AND SICK BEHAVIOR OF MEN FOR SO LONG THAT WE THINK IT WAS NORMAL. WE THINK IT IS  OK. WE OFTEN INTRODUCE CERTAIN CATCH PHRASES TO JUSTIFY OUR OWN WRONGS, ARROGANCE AND IGNORANCE.

9. FOR THOSE OF US AS MEN WHO LOVE, TRUST AND RESPECT OUR MOTHERS, IT IS NOT DIFFICULT FOR US TO SEE THE TRUTH IN OUR MALEVOLENCE. WHETHER WE ADMIT TO IT OR NOT IS ANOTHER ISSUE.

10. FOR THOSE OF US WHO HAVE A MORAL CONSCIENCE- NOW IS THE TIME TO COME FORWARD, SPEAK UP AND SPEAK OUT. IF WE FAIL TO DO THIS, THEN THE DOORS TO DESTRUCTION WILL ONLY SWING WIDE OPEN TO INTRODUCING THE ILLS OF SEX TRAFFICKING OF FEMALES, DOMESTIC VIOLENCE AGAINST WOMEN, SEXUAL HARASSMENT AT WORK AND OTHER PLACES, INEQUALITY AND INJUSTICE AGAINST WOMEN AND OTHER RACE, CLASS, SPECIES OF PEOPLE IN OUR SOCIETY.

11. WE HAVE LOST OUR MORAL COMPASS, AND HAVE REPLACED IT WITH A SELF OTHER BIAS- WHICH SEEKS TO PROTECT ONLY THOSE WHO HAVE WEALTH, INFLUENCE AND PRIVILEGE IN OUR SOCIETY. WE ARE QUICK TO SAY- IN GOD WE TRUST. I OFTEN WONDER WHICH GOD ARE WE TALKING ABOUT.
