“Violence does, in truth, recoil upon the violent, and the schemer falls into the pit which he digs for another.”
Sherlock Holmes, from “The Adventure of the Speckled Band“, by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, 1892
It’s March, 2018, and domestic violence has been dropping all over the globe for over twenty years, now, and that drop has been increasing in speed and magnitude down through time. Rates of nonfatal domestic violence in the U.S. fell by 63 percent between 1994 and 2012.
That’s really bad news for the folks in charge, which is why a story from their controlled press says “In US, a decline in domestic violence.”
That implies that it’s falling in the US, but not elsewhere. Well, it’s falling all over the globe, also by huge percentages. Domestic violence in the U.K. has fallen around 40 percent since 1993.
As you’ll see below in the article I got that statistic from, the U.K.’s fox-in-the-henhouse, Illuminist-shill director of public prosecutions (DPP) “does not believe that the incidence of domestic violence are falling. He wants an inquiry to find out why the numbers are not right.”
The same desperate stonewalling is seen in this U.S. news story: “Are Domestic Violence Rates Dropping? Statistics show incidents of domestic violence are down, but advocates say they aren’t seeing it.”
And, once again, the same desperate stonewalling is seen in this Australian news story: “Are domestic violence figures actually on the decline?”
That’s because the people writing the stories are all members of a Conspiracy, run by the One-Percenter few to defraud the wholly-credulous many.
The words “mystery”, “baffled” and “puzzled” are memes, used, among numerous similar variants, whenever anyone in the wholly-controlled-and-coopted Political, Academic, Scientific and Media establishments wants to lie about, well, basically anything.
That’s why one of the articles below says “We do not know why the rate of domestic violence is falling.”
And why it goes on to say “There is yet another clue to the fall in rates of domestic violence.”
Even though they won’t allow the real driver of the stunning, wholesale societal transformation, they have to admit that the phenomenon is global in scope:
“all violence has been falling since the 1990s. This is not just a British phenomenon; it is reported in the US and Europe, too. It seems that contemporary society is just a lot more squeamish about violence.” You know, squeamish, as if beating your wife was something you should MAN UP TO, and would have done, in the old days.
As you can see, the government talking heads, the unnamed “advocates”, and the authors of the articles in the controlled press organs of every nation on Earth are all with the program, all bravely supporting the party line within the larger Conspiracy they inhabit.
But their use of such rigid, unthinking tactics on a rapidly-changing battlefield such as this one is going to quickly take them to their ruin, because it lets even an average guy like me with a little extra time on his hands take them apart like this, day after day, week after week, month after month, year after year.
You may have noticed that the theses presented in this thread are not broad, nor are they complex.
Perhaps soon someone in a non-Western nation will join me in this analysis, and see if things like the “mystery“, “baffled” and “puzzled” memes map to Languages that are not Latin-based. Cons are the same in every language, the themes used to implement them are the same. Put on fair appearance, gain the “confidence” of the rube, etc.
So I’m guessing that it will map to those other languages. But we’ll see.
You know, it occurred to me just earlier tonight that the first language must have been created by these people for the purpose of control and dominance. And that those same people then created all the other languages, and then implemented them, to divide and conquer humanity.
With the “Tower of Babel” children’s story written to cover up the event.
I’m guessing they gained the knowledge in the same sort of dark bargain they used to acquire the technology of metallurgy.
July 11, 2013 – U.K. – Domestic violence is falling. Why aren’t people celebrating?
The UK’s director of public prosecutions (DPP), Keir Starmer, ought to be pleased with himself. After years of special attention from the authorities, the rate of conviction in domestic-violence cases is up for the second year running, to around 70 per cent of all cases brought to court. That is a big success.
On top of that, the number of cases of domestic violence referred by the police to the DPP is way down. The pattern of a higher conviction rate from fewer cases is true not just of domestic violence cases, but also of rape, and also of child-sex abuse.
Any public servant with this sort of success ought to be celebrating. But not Keir Starmer.
On the contrary, the DPP says he does not believe that the incidence of domestic violence are falling. He wants an inquiry to find out why the numbers are not right. He thinks the police are losing cases of domestic violence.
Starmer does not believe that the incidence of domestic violence is falling. Of course, it is true that crime statistics are open to all kinds of distortion. Still, the British Crime Survey finds that domestic violence has been on the decline since 1993, falling by around 40 per cent. That is a long-term trend that seems unlikely to be changed by statistical juggling.
(They trumpeted about “increased convictions” up top, then go on to use the general phrase “way down” to describe the specific 40 percent decrease in domestic violence that they carefully “buried” much lower in the article. As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda. And they hedged again by saying “around 40%.” – ed)
We do not know why the rate of domestic violence is falling. One likely reason is that more women are earners in their own right. Since the 1990s, there have been as many women on the payroll as men (though men in aggregate work more hours). Women who earn are less likely to stay with men who beat them.
Another reason is that society’s attitudes towards domestic violence have changed. Wife beating was not acceptable in the 1970s, but there was a greater willingness to turn a blind eye to it. Nowadays, most people are horrified by it.
(Why? What’s driving that change, for the first time in history? – ed)
There is yet another clue to the fall in rates of domestic violence. And that is that all violence has been falling since the 1990s. This is not just a British phenomenon; it is reported in the US and Europe, too. It seems that contemporary society is just a lot more squeamish about violence.
August 26, 2014 – In US, a decline in domestic violence – CSMonitor.com
Annual rates of nonfatal domestic violence fell by 63 percent between 1994 and 2012

April 20, 2015 – Are Domestic Violence Rates Dropping? – Domestic Shelters
Statistics show incidents of domestic violence are down, but advocates say they aren’t seeing it.
February 2, 2016 – FactCheck Q&A: is domestic violence in Australia on the decline?
Are domestic violence figures actually on the decline?
Ronaldo Aquino (audience member): Just over a week ago, Mark Latham alleged that the domestic violence figures are actually on the decline and he was chastised for it in social media and I checked the Australian Institute of Criminology and he was actually right. The figures actually peaked around 2007. So is this a case of the squeaky wheel gets the grease?
Tony Jones: … It might be a job for our fact checking unit on the issue of the statistics. – Q&A audience member Ronald Aquino and host Tony Jones
According to the Australian Institute of Criminology’s National Homicide Monitoring Program, rates of intimate partner homicide have declined since reaching a peak in 2007-08.
For example, the most recently published figures report that in the two-year period between 2010 and 2012 there were 109 intimate partner homicides.
That is a small decrease from the 122 intimate partner homicides for the proceeding two-year period 2008 to 2010.
Despite small decreases in intimate partner homicides, Australian data from the last decade overall does not indicate that domestic violence is in decline.
(The author of the article carefully uses the general word “small”, and provides the numbers, but hedges by omitting the specific percentage decrease, as including it would have been much more impactful. So I had to do the math. It’s a 12% decrease. As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda. This article doesn’t provide any information from 2012 to 2016, when the real drops began in earnest – ed)
March 28, 2017 – Domestic Violence Conviction Rate Falling in New Mexico
(Clearly implies that it’s poor courtroom execution that’s causing the drop. – ed)
January 5, 2018 – Memphis, TN – Domestic violence homicides drop in 2017–but could still increase.
The number of domestic violence homicides fell in 2017. However, experts said that may not mean the problem is improving.
Memphis Police Department solved 129 of the 200 homicides in 2017. Ninety-five percent of those cases involved victims and suspects who knew each other.
Twenty-six of them are specifically labeled as domestic violence-related homicides. That’s down from 32 in 2015.
However, experts said the number of domestic violence homicides could increase as more of the homicides are solved.
(The author of the article carefully uses the general terms “fell” and “down”, and provides the numbers, but hedges by omitting the specific percentage decrease, as including it would have been much more impactful. So I had to do the math. It’s a 23% decrease. As you may recall, generality is a hallmark of propaganda. – ed)
