Picture of Matthew Price of BBC Radio Jersey t...

The Jersey Way is an “out side look at the goings on around the Island. From an average Joe view point.”

Here it publishes a sequence of radio interviews by BBC Radio Jersey about CoverUps. The interviewer Matthew Price talks about our time of ‘deep distrust about our political system and the way it is reported in the media’. Yes, we found that child snatching is one of Seven Deadly Syndromes and Seven Media Cover-Ups.

The radio interviews are about the history of child abuse and paedophilia: children’s homes and foster care.

I found most interesting the interviewer’s underlying assumption that ‘people’ are not trustworthy, whereas the investigative journalist and blogger, Rico Sorda believes in truth, honesty and integrity. And evidence.

Strangely, I had just heard the same analysis being voiced by a German military historian who had researched the question about Germany’s “sovereignty”.

It’s an attitude problem, methinks: of public school boys in the UK and Anglo-Saxon capitalists in Germany… But who cares what I think? Well, I was re-inspired by Tagore on this Sunday morning:

 I am not bound to succeed, but I am bound to live up to the light I have.

May you follow your inner light, too!

And here are a few more of Tagore‘s fireflies which the Poem Hunter kindly put together:

God seeks comrades and claims love,
the Devil seeks slaves and claims obedience.

The tyrant claims freedom to kill freedom
and yet to keep it for himself.

We gain freedom
when we have paid the full price
for our right to live.

I leave no trace of wings in the air,
but I am glad I have had my flight.

Man discovers his own wealth
when God comes to ask gifts of him.

God loves to see in me not his servant,
but himself, who serves all.

I am able to love my God
because He gives me freedom to deny Him.

The fireflies, twinkling among leaves,
make the stars wonder.
