s I said earlier, we should not hide things away. They exist, so let’s begin to deal with them. It’s our whole consciousness. Everything included, warts, shit and all. It doesn’t have to be visible to everyone, unless they wish to see it. Are you troubled by porn on a daily basis?
I am not troubled by porn on a daily basis, but neither am I daily troubled by pedophilia, sexual violence against women, gross injustice, violence against myself and so on - in terms of direct personal experience. As a person with a disability I am not daily troubled by discrimination and exclusion. Yet for the most part of the past 2 decades my professional role has been to support people with disability.
I think awareness of harm is sufficient. It is why we feed the hungry, house the homeless, and tend to the sick (well some of us do). The question might be where we draw the line - and that's a fair topic for debate. I note in the US that there is a passionate debate about whom should be helped and who is a 'freeloader'. Same thing here - and with the same result - polarisation and recriminations.
I don't think the whole of our consciousness should be manifest just because its there (in a metaphysical sense). We all manage our behaviour to conceal the 'warts, shit and all' to a greater or lesser degree. For me, part of the essential notion of humanity is a duty of aspiration to being a better self. In a complex pluralistic society geared to cater to then lowest common denominator (for that is where the profit is for many) I agree that the tendency is toward warts and all - the chaos of unmanaged emotions and instincts. But I don't think the solution is the creation morally gated communities that hide from that 'reality'.
