1 an opinion, piece of information, result etc that is skewed
is incorrect, especially because it has been affected by a particular thing
or because you do not know all the facts
The media’s coverage of the election has been skewed from the very beginning.
2 something that is skewed is not straight and is higher on one side than the other
The picture on the wall was slightly skewed.
The website is about things that cannot happen. Something that cannot be understood, cannot be explained, it is not normal. Something that has been put together. There is the existential impact it causes with the consequences, a mess and the burden on society.
The pattern that Liam Allan found himself in, something that couldn’t have happened, his best period of his university years turned into a nightmare for two years, he couldn’t concentrate and had moments when he thought about leaving life (as he says in his informal video: ‘Behind the breakthrough: pressure and trauma’ and in a talk to an audience of 150: ‘Liam Allan speech at Innovation of Justice Cardiff 2019’).
The same pattern is what happened in Saint Omer in northern France with 13 people who were imprisoned for four years in 2004 on the basis of one person’s fabricated story. One person’s business broke down, and so on (the Times articles of the time are on the website).
There is the endless list of people who end up in prison because, for a multitude of reasons, something was fabricated, for which, like Liam Allan, they have neither fault nor part.
In 2017, there were 100 000 ‘exonerations’ worldwide (the action of officially absolving someone from blame; vindication, the release of someone from a duty or obligation), plus 25 000 in America.
There is a gap, a danger zone, within the justice system and its entities, which derails and disrupts this pillar of society.
The website shows the context, where people are taken for a ride, so that something can fester and escalate and a wrong society arises, that cause phenomena where you are no longer human, that make it possible for these things to arise.
The mayor of Antwerp a few years ago was not too shy to say: “a black page for the city”.
For example, Diederik Stapel’s science fraud has nothing to do with science, a star academic who has done nothing but put together fictitious things for years.
And so on.
In a healthy society one should expect to notice what is wrong, that it cannot arise and the fabric of society ensures that life is good for everyone. A society is everyone.
Everywhere people talk to each other and there are positive healthy enjoyable contacts as a counterbalance to what derails and sours.
If this doesn’t work, people with a good character get a bad name and are portrayed wrongly, which gets them into all kinds of trouble and their environment with them.
If all kinds of wrong things happen, people notice this in all kinds of ways and know that it is wrong.
One can expect it to be handled correctly.
Someone who has nothing to do with something should not be blamed and have to bear the consequences.
If mistakes are made, one could say: ‘it is a misunderstanding’ – if this becomes clear – and make sure it is solved.
People have their own character and should be expected to fit into a healthy society.
People should be able to rely on honesty in the hierarchy so that they can trust each other.
