My Primary Area of Specialisation in my writing Career is as follows:
Journalism & Objectivity seem to be an important part of the emphasis in this course. However, whenever I read or listen to the daily news, especially related to International issues, I cannot find any ‘Objectivity’ in them. Perhaps, this is due to the fact that Australia Media simply cut and paste their report from BBC & CNN etc?
Thanks for bearing with me over the last few months. I know that to be a professional journalist, I should not put my emotion in my writing, but as I regarded those assignments I have written as simply an assignment for the course, I let my rage against the Western Media and Government behaviour against countries not towing their line of interest flow in my wording.
Like Mr. Kim Beasley observation during his interview by the Phoenix TV in Hong Kong few month ago, it was also obvious to me that, during the March’s Tibetan riot in Lhasa, it was the Human Rights of the Han and Muslim Chinese been violated and not the other way round.
However, the way the Western Media and government distorted the incident boiled my blood and for the first time, I decided to use my spare time to voice up for China and other developing countries. In order for me to make accurate statement, I have read more then 15 books over the last few months in preparation for my part-time writing career in 2009, including reading the book “XXX” (Note: name of book is removed as it is not my target of complaint in this website) written by a British writer who made so many subjective, partial and inaccurate statement in her writing.
The following 2 YouTube Videos can best describe my rage against the Western Media:
Tibet: The Truth (A Political History) by a Hollywood producer
Free Iraq, Free Tibet, Very good cause!!
The British and some European countries through their colonial past, created most of the world problem today. Whether it is the conflict between Pakistan and India, Israel and Palestine, the ethnic conflict in Africa or the Tibet issue, etc.
The British Government through its Foreign Secretary David Miliband has for the first time recently officially acknowledged that what the British Government did in Tibet a century ago was a historical mistake, using his word, it is an "anachronism" (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/tibet/3385803/UK-recognises-Chinas-direct-rule-over-Tibet.html).
It puzzle me that, the “Objective” Western Media in Australia hardly reported this kind of News and I am not sure how many Australian Politicians or Journalists knew anything about the actual history of Tibet and China?
The West has massed with Africa for centuries, not only the border of each country in Africa was created by a ruler with a straight line by the European colonial powers in the past, over the last 60 years after the 2nd World War, Africa is almost under the exclusive manipulation of the West. But, African despite rich in resources still remain the poorest on earth. Why?
In fact, if my prediction is not wrong, the welfare system in Australia, Europe and USA will be partially collapse within the next 10 to 15 years. All kind of social problem will intensify and the society will no longer be in harmony. A small incident will spark riot like the incident in Greece. The current election system will become a problem like many 3rd World Nations had experienced.
The rule of law and institutionalisation of certain universal human value like Human Rights, Free Speech and anti-corruption are the keys toward a stable and harmonise society, not direct election. The ability of a political system to place the most competent people at the top job are the key toward solving all kind of social problem including poverty, not the current form of Western Style Direct Election System. The world in the 21st century is too complex for any Tom, Dick and Harry on the street to decide what is good and what is workable.
I will delicate my time to research and produce articles as an independent writer. All the above named issues are my primary research objective.
My secondary area of specialisation is as follows:
Issue of social concern or suffering such as homeless, loneliness, unemployment, people living purely on social welfare, kids wandering on the streets during school hours, shop lifting epidemic, the breaking down of family value and its effect on the society and individuals, and the implication of our “lazy and unreliable” young generation to the society, etc.
All the above issues has been part of a social problem for ages, and it will become an issue of social proportion in the 21st Century due to our:
· Declining family value (people have nowhere to fall back and seek support the day when government no longer able to provide social benefit);
· Substandard economy with an aging population growing faster then the ‘lazy and unreliable’ young generation.
· A political system that fail to produce visionary and responsible first class leadership.
All the above issues can be easily found around us. As a retailer in a shopping center for more then 3 years, I have witness all the above problem on a daily basic. Therefore, I believe that it is of social interest to speak about the problem and solution.
