“Enough!!!” shouted Inspector One. “Citizen 3124583, I’m recommending you for immediate re-education as an unsuitable parental entity. Do not approach your child unless supervised and do not attempt to escape. We will be waiting outside until your re-educator arrives!” With that, the two grey figures clicked their heels and left.
It is a wonderful comical story featured by permission of incongenerous mockery. Is it a veiled warning to us, could this actually happen. If someone could think it, could it become reality?
Here is an extract from my family court case.
I’m sitting in the witness box, and having just arrived there, I am surveying my new perspective of the room. Beneath the tables behind which the parties sit and at the feet of one femi-facist wannabe lawyer, there is an obvious array of every public statement recorded in the media, which I had ever made. As she began her tirade of questions regarding my suitability as a parent it became apparent that the publication that aggravated her most was a green covered glossy magazine. Rising to her feet she waved the publication furiously in one hand and wagged the index finger of other at me, (multi tasking). She tried to question everything from my political opinion to my personal involvement in politics. If she had been allowed out from behind her desk, I am sure I would have received a good slapping. My cheeks would have been tattooed with an insipid shade of green, and reverse image of the embossed type imprinted in my face: Corrected upon looking in the mirror it would have read “Court of Injustice.”
I was only there to be a father, and I had to play her silly game. But to her, it wasn’t a silly game. The bitch was serious. Her teeth were flashing, with a rabid growl rising from her throat. She was a menacing crossbred watchdog, there to protect the children of the state, and I was the enemy, and it is not a story from an overactive imagination, it actually happened right here in New Zealand.
