Existential crisis or stupidity?

I'm a bit lost for words today. Been shouting "WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON" and stuff like the over on twitter for a while, and of course, there's a lot to be said for that. Especially since I don't dare to swear in real life, in case people think I'm rude or in case I upset anyone.

Saville investigation. What a great report title "giving victims a voice" or something like that. Except it hasn't. There are still victims who have not been interviewed properly, whose stories are too dangerous. Here's a voice that resonates all the louder, because it doesn't shout. I wonder how many victims didn't come forward because they were in too much pain inside, or dead.

How are we going to get our heads round the idea that really weird, gruesome, twisted stuff actually goes on. Stuff like mass manipulation of the great unwashed, secret societies, ritual abuse, satanism, mind control, child pornography, pedophile rings, children being sexually abused day in day out in every village in the land. How do we accept that these things exist, and continue to go about our daily business? Go shopping. Pick up the kids from school. Talk about the weather. How do we accept that most of what we've been told is only a short, skimpy, full of holes version of the full length truth? Can we do that, and continue to vote, pay taxes and trust the police? Would we bother to watch the news anymore, if we knew for sure that these are the news that have been handpicked for us to watch, because the real news would blow our establishment, our society, our faith in mankind, apart?

The trouble is that once we start digging around, we can't go back to being stupid.
