Why should you live in a society where you are afraid to speak your mind?
My religion and spiritual question has been the cause of my life. The source is a certain thing, I cannot open here but it’s okay. I wonder, because I question, and yet, in contradiction, I believe, so vehemently in my path, for many reasons, pure and impure. But I am me, and my Lord is One, and my freedom is nigh, and my question will die, soon, before long, I’ll see with my eye.
Political Taboos are the cause of ignorance. Free the truth and hurt the idiots’ feelings, it will save many lives and establish justice.
I never understood the hypocrisy of people who act like they do not have desires, physical and nonphysical. Even religious figures have desires. It’d be disturbing to think of those who deny that fact. Wonder if priests touching children is a consequence of that denial. Asceticism and discipline have negative consequences that we are blind to as human beings, such as judging others for not “achieving similar standards”, but such perfectionists attitudes are inhuman, unrealistic, and, as a result, hypocritical.
Take a look for instance at Israel, where Palestinians suffer everyday because Israelis believe they are more entitled to land then others for whatever reason they can conjure or assert, be it biblical prophecy, the Holocaust, or anti-Semitism. I always feel like these Israeli prime ministers and presidents, like most politicians, love portraying themselves as above-human individuals with higher standards of behavior, ideology, and culture. This is comparable to the superficial culture of Republicanism and Conservatism in the U.S., and the U.K. come to think of it, which I see as another product of attempts by people to abuse their privileges in order to reap more benefits and to live better while tormenting others with outrageous ideas about the “proper” standards of living that they themselves cannot meet.
Ah, ignorance. There is nothing like it.
I was working on the proof of one of my poems all the morning, and took out a comma. In the afternoon I put it back again. – Oscar Wilde
In this world we live in, people are sensitive to the truth, so they flock to masses, where they seek to be approved.
