Macbeth Act 5, scene 1, 26–40

Lady Macbeth, as has become her wont, sleepwalks through the royal castle. As her waiting-woman and her doctor listen in, she mutters fragments of an imaginary conversation that recalls the night she and her husband conspired to murder King Duncan The hour is two o’clock; she upbraids her husband for his bad conscience; she insists that there will be nothing to fear once they’ve grabbed the crown; she marvels at how much blood Duncan had to shed. As Lady Macbeth replays this scene for the eavesdroppers, she not only incriminates herself, but also reveals the pangs of conscience she had ridiculed in her husband.

 Lady Macbeth, who scorned him then, now finds the blood dyed into her conscience. The king and queen persist in imagining that physical actions can root out psychological demons, but the play is an exposition of how wrong they are.

 

Justice is conscience, not a personal conscience but the conscience of the whole of humanity. Those who clearly recognize the voice of their own conscience usually recognize also the voice of justice.

Alexander  Solzhenitsyn.

 

I am bedeviled to comprehend why the World,  continuously refuses to listen to it’s conscience.

The little voice inside it that says, " hey  something is out of tune"

Listen to your conscience it is telling you which way to go.

 

************************************

 

The following is a passage taken from one of  The £airds  recent posts.

 

 

The Texas Supreme Court has upheld a lower court decision which says 460 children removed from a  ranch run by a religious sect should be returned to their parents.

 "On the record before us, removal of the children was not warranted."

The ruling shatters one of the largest child-custody cases in US history. State officials said the removals were necessary to end a cycle of sexual abuse at the ranch in which teenage girls were forced to marry and have sex with older men.

 The ranch is run by the Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. The church teaches that polygamy brings glorification in heaven.

 

How can the idiots that comprise the Texan Supreme Court of "justice" sleep at night.

Have they no conscience.

When these muppets are laid to rest

they should be face down.

 

On a lighter note it’s Summer.

                                                 The  £aird is not " inferring " that "you" or the Mormons
                                                   condone or sanction this immoral and disgusting blight.
                                                   He simply  draws your attention to the fact that,
                                                           the Mormons themselves are a cult/sect, and that itself
                                                     once practised polygamy.
          
                                                      This is not misinformation, you have misinterpreted
                                                         the £aird’s comment.  I.M.O.

    In what part of my post did you construe I was condoning this extremist group? I certainly don’t! But I also don’t condone the spread of misinformation. If you want to knock the Mormon religion there is enough true ammunition with which to do so. But trying to infer they condone or sanction the actions of this extremist group in Texas is wrong–because they don’t. The Official Church banned polygamy and that is fact. Anyone found practicing polygamy is excommunicated; and that’s a fact. This group in Texas is an evil one, but it’s not Mormon as it is practiced today. No more than the Wesboro Baptist hate group is Baptist… or even Christian for that fact. And FYI I’m not Mormon or Baptist. In fact I’m pretty much anti any type of organised religion. They are all cults IMO. Some being more harmful than others, but all cause harm.

  4. "not recognised by the true Church of LDS" – So that makes it ok?
    The mormons are themselves a cult – passing off one man’s "vision" of religious indoctrination. And just in case we forget why they adopted polygomy – The ‘surplus ‘ women were shared around the ‘menfolk’ when the wagon trains pulled into Utah!

  10. Good Morning Kenny,
    Well just awoke to a beautiful sunshiney morning and thought i would come by and catch up with you,
    I enjoyed this blog, it is true, humans have a terrific way of justifying their own actions regardless of that "wee Voice" we so often hear. I always believe though that there are people who choose not to have a concience, in the end it all comes down to a "Choice", what we choose to do and which path we chose to take. If in those choices that are made are an injustice then the choice is wrong and we haven’t chosen to listen to our concience. does that make sense?    …lol  Maybe not as i am only awake, but it makes sense to me.
     
    Anyhoo Kenny, i hope you are well my friend, Xena sends you a huge Slobbery lick to brighten your day. Take care….Diane…..xx

    Good morning Kenny,
    Am about to have a quick lunch and then head outdoors while the weather is sunny and warm.  Most of our week will be overcast so need to take advantage when the "Gods" let the "Sun God " play!
     
    I was looking at Cherno and didn’t realize what an imposing animal he/she is. Very handsome.  And yes, so is that lovely "peace rose."   When the bloom comes fully into its own……she will be Queen of World.  Such lovely and such perfection.
     
    I too shall face the world but not with such splendor!   I trust you are well my friend.  All is well on this side of the pond.  Peace……..Bittersweet

  14. Actually that ranch is not recognised by the true Church of LDS nor is polygamy sactioned by the Church. It hasn’t been for years and those who practice polygamy are excommunicated. This group is an off-shoot faction–a cult if you will. Kind of like the Westboro faction that claims to be "Baptist"–they too are just a cult trying to pass itself off as something it isn’t.  Nonetheless, it is a damned shame that those children had to be given back. We try so hard to ensure certain freedoms that sometimes in protecting one we are harming another.

  16. good entry–and I like also what Isa said, about how we humans are so good at justifying our own actions……it takes a good bit of growing up and spiritually evolving to truly see true justice, rather than our own rationalle….I have seen both sides of that coin, and love now being able to try things on and see more acurately if I had a hand in what the trouble is……

  17. Conscience to my side of view is strongly related to how high your moral barrier is. And the two are rather intricate. So what is justice for someone how gave a blow may not be justice for someone who faulted.
     
    It is amazing the fine like between justice/injustice. We always seem to find a good reason to JUSTIFY  our actions…..
     
    Ok I should go to bed…..my headache is starting to mess with my logic.
     
    Take care,
    Isa
