What Shall We do with the Drunken, Lecherous Sailor?

It is impossible to trust a drunken, lecherous sailor, or even just a drunken one.

Unfortunately, drunken, lecherous sailors have been all too common in military and merchant shipping services.  And everyone pays the price for that.


Australians have long had a She'll be right attitude towards problems, but what does that really mean in terms of consequences.  Where does the phrase She'll be right originate?

Drunken, lecherous sailors are apt to say She'll be right and No worries after causing a great deal of distress to other persons.  They lack compassion.  They lack a sense of responsibility for their actions.  They lack respect.  They therefore have no right to be sailors at all.

Australians spend a great deal of public money on sailors and sailing vessels.  They rarely receive value for money.  The She'll be right and No worries attitudes of drunken, lecherous sailors spill over in many areas of public and private life.

Have Australian attitudes improved in any way over the past seventy years?

Where do Australians usually locate journalism for peace, and how do they support that journalism?

How are Australians preventing military pollution?

How are Australians creating world peace?

How are Australians upholding enlightened rights for all humans?

As you may be aware, dear guest, a festival full of meaningfulness is continuing here in Villa Twaklinilkawt, especially in the little, ethereal theatre.

If you are seeking to be a future employee in the festival state of South Australia, are you aware of the current situation in that regard?

If you were in Villa Twaklinilkawt last year for the International Twaklinesque Literary Festival of Twaklinian Poetry and Twaklinist Prose, please note that this year's festival will probably start in about two weeks from now, all being well.  Were you at the event last year?

On day four last year, there was much discussion about humour and controversy.  Soon after the festival was over, preparations were already well in hand for this year.

As well as the international festival, there was the local Twaklinesque festival.  It took place shortly afterwards.

This year, for both festivals, the themes are likely to include peace and peace.  This is due to the fact that the events will coincide with the continuation of the digital Twaklinesque Festival of Peace.

The question about the drunken, lecherous sailor was posed to my breakfast guest yesterday.  I had, of course, presumed that my guest would not be a drunken, lecherous sailor, particularly at that hour of the morning.

Travelling the world in search of enlightening experiences is a privilege often supplied to sailors.  They are more likely to benefit from those occasions whilst sober, as are the persons who encounter sailors at any time of the day or night.

Like drunkenness, lechery is a form of tyranny.  It causes a great deal of suffering in the world and many haphazard inclusions in family trees.

Regardless of whether sailors or soldiers or snake oil salesmen are involved in lecherous pursuits, and other acts of aggression, the inconvenience and distress they cause is intolerable.

There is nothing wrong with peaceful playfulness and affectionate regard, as long as the boundaries into abusiveness are never crossed.  Literature for peace provides suitable guidance on how to behave in a wide range of situations, whether one happens to be a sailor or not.
