ABOUT “GOING BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD”
A drawing board (also drawing table, drafting table or architect’s table) is, in its antique form, a kind of multipurpose desk which can be used for any kind of drawing, writing or impromptu sketching on a large sheet of paper or for reading a large format book or other over-sized document or for drafting precise technical illustrations. The drawing table used to be a frequent companion to a pedestal desk in a gentleman’s study or private library, during the pre-industrial and early industrial era. During the Industrial Revolution draftsmanship gradually became a specialized trade and drawing tables slowly moved out of the libraries and offices of most gentlemen. They became more utilitarian and were built of steel and plastic instead of fine woods and brass.
Modern-day idiom :The expression “back to the drawing board” is used when a plan or course of action needs to be changed, often drastically; usually due a very unsuccessful result. (Source Wikipedia).
WHY GO BACK TO THE DRAWING BOARD?
On Yahoo News recently about 11 hours ago…..6 arrested in new rape of a bus passenger in India…
This is coming despite the court case and protests aroused by the rape of the physiotherapy student which attracted comments around the globe.
Mail online reported a case of a teenage girl raped at a school prom party by group of college football team players, case in court… And another just recent is a rape of a Mentally challenged girl, 15 “gang raped” under her desk during class as teacher did nothing at Martin De Porres Academy in Elmont, N.Y .
These are among the ones reported in the countless cases of rape victims around the world.
1 month remembrance of the shooting in Connecticut Elementary school which left about 20 children dead and six adult dead is around the corner. Major awareness is been created to make sure that most people sign a petition which will Demand a Plan to End Gun Violence as people die each day due to unwanted shooting.
These are among the ones reported by the media in the countless cases of unwanted shooting and killing of children and civilians
The internet activist, who just committed suicide, is another issue I must talk about. Aaron Swartz Reddit co-founder and internet activist committed suicide in New York on Friday, MIT’s The Tech reports. Swartz was charged in July 2011 with felony hacking, accused of stealing millions of documents from online research outlet JSTOR. Swartz pled not guilty in September 2012, but was still facing a possible prison sentence, ZDNet reports. Demand Progress’s executive director wrote in 2011, “It’s like trying to put someone in jail for allegedly checking too many books out of the library.”
According to his mum, ‘Aaron died due to emotional problems he has trying to cope with the fact that he might be reminded in prison and be abused, due to his internet activities and recent court charges’. He was just 26 years old.
These are events which are making the news and there are even more which are unspoken of and never where reported by the media, and the question now is, “WHO IS TO BLAME FOR ALL OF THESE”
Most people will definitely blame the rapists, and some might say Aaron crossed the line.
The issues with gun violence didn’t start today. Like some are still agitating, ‘give us right to own guns for to protect ourselves against attacks from bad people’.
Maybe if every woman, young girl had a gun, the issues with rape will be controlled or even completely halted…’some say’
Maybe if everyone had a gun armed robbery will be reduced..
its seems we also forgetting to ask how did all these began?
There is no moral justification to rape a woman, but have you asked why these youth find pleasure in these acts not minding the penalties involved….
There is so much NONSENSE on the internet which WE have by our laws allowed due to FREEDOM…
Aaron had a course he was fighting for and if that course had never existed probably he wouldn’t go into hacking…
I believe that we can go back to the drawing board and find out where the compass had failed us… the world could be a better place if we really go back to the board and turn around…
No more guns,
No more free shooting class for teenagers,
Reduce the NONSENSE on the internet that is where the focus should be….
FREEDOM HAS A LIMIT; EVEN GOD HIMSELF GAVE US A LIMIT TO OUR FREEDOM…
