Judges have set the fuse on a social nuclear time bomb. Daily, fathers
are being driven out of their families and properties - effectively
disenfranchised from Society - but no one knows.
In 1996 we told the late Donald Dewar MP; "If the family courts
were public, the number of allegations of sexual abuse would drop
The process of smearing is now second nature in the media and in
the secret family courts. It makes for fabulous headlines but when
the cases fall flat the public is never told.
Secrecy and Suppression go hand in hand with Perjury and Corruption,
disfiguring our society. The scandals of BSE, the Iraq 'supergun'
fiasco, and AIDS are examples of misinformation and deception.
The Birmingham Six and the Guildford Four amply illustrate that
British Justice is in crisis. The secret family courts, which have
become more or less illegal in their daily operation, are in the
vanguard of what is creeping into other areas.
There is now a tangible air of suppression as the result of censorship,
which extends throughout our secretive society.
The speakers at this year's Mankind National Conference will tell
us about the effects of censorship in their specialist fields, and
also the wider philosophical, ethical and social implications for
a society which tolerates censorship on the present scale.
