Glass

Glass, a material that could last a thousand years.
What to do we do with it?
Fill it with food or drink,
eat or drink the contents,
then throw it away.
Seriously.
Glass.
Irony.
Speechless.
Humanity.
Uh.
Planet Earth is calling, is anyone listening?

Forbidden

It is forbidden to kill.

To kill by accident, or without intent, or in the passion of the moment, this is bad. To calculate, deliberate, decide, plan, and kill without compassion, this is absolutely forbidden. Is it?

We go to war. We train people in multiple ways to kill; deliberately, decisively, dispassionately; we pay them money to do so. We call them; soldiers, warriors, infantry, marines, guards, guerilla, mercenary, assasin, butcher, terrorist, or a thousand other euphemisms. The name depends only on whether we perceive advantage or disadvantage from the killing.

 

Americans believe they stand for freedom. They mistake liberarianism for universal freedom.The pinnacle of liberarianism is enshrined in American gun laws, the right to bear arms. Yet freedom cannotexist without resposibility. I am free to drive my car down any part of any road, any time I choose, but what if I use that freedom to drive on the wrong side of the road, what then? If we all chose to drive all over the road, we would all lose the freedom to drive. Individual freedom can exist only when every individual agrees to limit that freedom. Only forbiddence allows freedom.

Gun laws. Does an individual right to own and use a gun infringe other individual’s right to safety? You need only compare homicide rates with gun ownership in two or three countries to see that there is a direct causal link, but by all means, compare every country in the world. America has one of the highest rates of homicide on planet earth.

Another kind of killing is the death penalty. It is hard to believe that there exists, even in first world countries, the belief that the killing of killers will teach other killers not to kill, or, even more unbelievable, that the killing of a killer will make amends for the killing.

Play, is the gift evolution gives to all animals, in order to practice and hone skills that will ensure the animal’s survival. The human animal currently spends the greatest effort, in time, money and other resources, to create games that practice the one skill that will ensure there non survival – killing. It calls these ‘games’.

it is forbidden to kill isn’t it?

 

Mad dogs and Englishmen

Now you’ve done it Britain. You’ve left the European Union. Boris Johnson, one of the leaders of the Leave campaign said today that

“This does not mean that the United Kingdom will be in any way less united; nor, indeed, does it mean that it will be any less European,”

Well I’m sorry to tell you Mr Johnson, but that is exactly what it means. You can’t leave Europe and still be a part of Europe. When the going got tough, the Brits got going.

Noice

It seems to have escaped the notice of the English speaking world, that the most intractable problems in the world today, have been caused by the English speaking world.

Well, you wanted to go it alone, so now that’s what you will have to do.

go it alone, all by yourselves, no help from Europe

No more lovely Spanish holidays, no more Mediterranean retreats, no skiing in Zurich.

You got what you wanted. I hope you enjoy it.
