I've been noticing a lot of movement within the Oscar Pistorius Trial, meaning that MANY South Africans are following it and are participating within discussion about the whole Oscar point. So for those who are not living in South Africa, and are not aware of the history here (as it has made international news)… here then a quick update:
Oscar Pistorius is a leading South African sprint runner who won attention as an athlete with a disability competing at a high level, including multiple Paralympic Games and the 2012 Summer Olympics. To South Africans he is most commonly known as the Blade Runner because he runs on his prosthetic legs which look like blades. Oscar dated Reeva Steenkamp, who was a South African model and reality TV star. On 14 February 2013, she was shot dead by the Paralympic athlete Oscar Pistorius at his Pretoria home. So basically, Oscar acknowledges that he shot Reeva to death and says that he mistook her for an intruder.
The Pretoria High Court ruled that the entire trial may be broadcast live via audio and that parts of the trial may be broadcast live via television, namely the opening and closing arguments, the testimony of consenting state witnesses, the judgment, and the sentencing if applicable. Hence why so many South Africans are following the Oscar trial so closely.
My issue with all of this is the fact that Oscar's trial is getting so much attention from people mostly due to the fact that he is an SA sports star, and that Reeva is a beautiful model in SA. Not saying there is anything wrong with this at all, but rather pointing out the fact that humans are SO brainwashed to only show interest when certain 'points' are met. I watched a few minutes of one of the Oscar trials which had been broadcast on TV, and I noticed the scrupulous way he the whole murder was being investigated, and immediately the thought that popped up in me was "imagine if ALL murders and injustices to life were investigated like this… We would SURELY have a changed world by now".
What is the CEO's of the corporations who destroy and harm life all for the sake of profit were also investigated in this manner.
Question: "Did you know that the consequences of your decisions would cause 'x amount' of children to be forced into child slavery all for the sake of you being able to sell your product for a cheaper price?"
Question: "So to be clear - despite the fact that you KNEW you would be abusing life, you decided to execute your decision regardless?"
Response: "Would you agree that you placed the value of your own life above others, and that in doing so you made and implemented decisions which would serve your own behest all for the sake of greed and power and status recognition, thus confirming that your current accepted and allowed character is in fact lessor than life?"
Just imagine if all injustices to life would be met with the same amount of eyes eagerly following and discussing the points which open up and exist in our world. The abuse of animals, children, nature, people all because we have systems run by self-interested characters which exist to enslave us all. We are in fact our OWN slave masters. Just imagine if we would wake up and give attention to that which is of value - LIFE. We have de-valued life and it’s time to restore the value of life.
