Zoom in on the monsters
IN THE light of your many reports and articles about the rape and murder of little girls, it is understandable that no one seems to have a kind thought for the monsters who do such things.
But consider this: every one of them was once an innocent little boy. Yes, it is too late now. Today they are monsters. But what about the little boys of today? Is it not likely that some will number among the monsters of the future?
Are there not some experts or academics who can launch a study, the result of which could make a happy difference in this world? Perhaps they might be criminologists, social psychologists, sociologists, social scientists or anthropologists? Or all of those, teamed up.
Their starting point would be the monsters – who constitute a conveniently captive crowd.
Interview them, grill them, quiz them and counsel them; find out what made them tick as they did. What kind of homes did they come from?
What was it like growing up? What about siblings, peer groups? Were they loners? Who were their heroes? What habits did they fall into? How did they come to terms with their hormones?
I hope a way could be found to fund such a study – or if one has already been done, someone could let us know about it.
This material should be put in the hands of all schoolteachers, to help them see the early signs, and carefully, skilfully guide the lads towards excellent manhood – and save some little girls, as yet unborn, from being numbered among the terrible statistics. Is it worth a try, or am I just a dreamer?
