And So, I Give Thanks

I’d just like to take a time away from the anger, the ranting, and the fighting, and just take a minute to thank you all. If you’re reading this, this message is for you. I write for the love of writing and the passion of my arguments; there is not a point I have made that is not my own, but having readers makes it so much more worthwhile.

Someone Wicked; Watching Society Fall has been in existence for just over a year now, and began as a not-quite-humble place where I could vent my anger and rant about the perceived idiocy in the world these days. Come December 19, and I joined the Great Internet War‘s most particularly in the effort of  fighting against the Internet Filter.

I have, on many occasions, discovered that people in my community and social circles, including, but not limited to, my own mother read Watching Society Fall. And even so, given that I have met fans and readers, I salute and thank you all, the nameless, faceless people around the world who have paid my site visit over this past year.

Yes, the site has gone a recent re-design, with new features and that dead-sexy donate button on the page for your convenience, even a shiny RSS feed for those of you who use RSS. I do have a partner-in-crime; a brilliant site administrator from the United States who is sympathetic to the cause.

As of late, I have become a part of Stop the Filter and have attended an organisation meeting; the first of many. Someone Wicked is also part of the Australian Net Freedom Coalition, and I am always looking for more people or groups to come together to fight this gross injustice against Australia. The groups fighting the filter have been nothing short of amazing in their efforts.

For those of you on Facebook, there is a Watching Society Fall Facebook Group. Feel free to post on the wall, or feel free to even comment here, on the site itself. I encourage it, as well as feedback and discussion of any kind.

And so, I continue to ask all that I have ever asked; do whatever you can, even if it is just spreading the word. The filter affects all of us; so why should we accept anything less than all of us standing against it?

To the recurring readers, to the people who glance at the site every now and then, to my friends who’re willing to talk to me about being readers, and even to those who are just now seeing it for one of the first times… I cannot thank any of you enough. I’m thanking you now just as I will always thank you as Watching Society Fall continues into the future.

    Just to let you know that I really enjoy your writings. Your mother will know that her hard earned dollars were well spent in educating you. You put your point of view across so that there is NO DOUBT what side you are arguing. It is a wonderful talent that you have. Take care. XXXCoralxxx

    Hi Coral
    Just letting you know that I am very proud of the work The Wicked One is doing and I enjoy reading his writings too. It’s a shame that more people don’t follow his lead in standing up for what they believe to be right for themselves and right for our society. He certainly has opened my eyes especially in regards to the net filter. I hope that he continues his work and I hope that more people will get on board to help stop society falling. Because unfortunately Watching Society Falling is what really is happening.

    I can see where The Wicked One has received his writing ability from. It is sad to see how society is falling apart. I am glad I am in the older rather than younger age bracket and do not have to deal with the fall out as much as perhaps my grandchildren will. I am also glad that I had the freedom I had as a child to play, ride my bike, go to the local pool, stay out till dinner time and still feel safe without the need of a mobile phone or any of the trappings a modern young thing must have. One of the things that drives me crazy is that parents are not teaching children respect. Respect for the elderly, respect for other peoples property, respect for family and also respect for themselves. But then again there are many things that drive me crazy. LOL no doubt you will get to read about them eventually. I just wish I had your ability to write as fluently as you both do. Take care. xxxcoralxxx

    Hi Coral. I think that the Wicked One is the one who taught me to write. He picked up his first book at 2 and I was teaching him to read at that early an age. He has been writing since primary school. Even now, if he isn’t on the computer, he has a pen in his hand writing, sometimes he’ll be doing both, but I have always encouraged him to read and write. As a child I had freedom similar to you. Unfortunately, so many things have changed and respect is a massive issue. I have 2 younger boys who are being taught right from wrong, manners etc, and respect is a huge part of it. If you don’t respect yourself, your parents, your family, your belongings, how can you respect anyone elses? A young man opened his car door onto my friends car door and left a small dent and a scratch. My friend and I saw it happen and we saw the young man go to drive away. We went over and my friend asked him why he didn’t check for damage. The young man was embarrassed and offered to pay for the damage. My friend didn’t want any money. He just wanted to know why the young man didn’t respect his car enough to not open the door onto someone elses. It isn’t hard to use manners and show respect to others. There are alot of things that drive me crazy as well and no doubt you will see some of them on here. Take care Coral, hope to see more of your comments soon.

    Darn for some reason my posts to you have not worked. Sorry I am such a blonde at times. I wish that parents could see just ten years into the future to see how teaching OR NOT teaching children the basics affects others. I am so glad that my job is done. Now if I could just keep going with the grandkids and their friends and their family….well imagine our world then…lol Am gonna try and figure out why my other posts didn`t make it to here. Take care. xxxcoralxxx
