"Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense." - Buddha
I am a big believer in nothing nowadays...or so it seems. If I told you what I really believed, you might think I finally went over the edge. Rest easy, it's not that bad. It's not that bad...for one thing, I'm not going to tell you what I really believe! I guess the fear of being ostracized is a sanity-check all its own, innit?
Perhaps in my self-imposed religious agnosticism and political atheism I will finally achieve the epitome of pessimism. Know this: I care not about this world or much of anything in it except my family and friends. I don't care about tomorrow and I don't care about yesterday. All I care about is today. Yesterday's face is one of sadness and Tomorrow's is one of fear and apprehension. You can take your "Global Warming" fears and the rest of your (true) paranoia and soft terror and shove it up your lower vent, I don't need it. Here is Wisdom, Let him who hath understanding reckon The Two Names of The Beast - capitalism and communism. It's all smoke and mirrors to get you and I in the same place - slavery.
Rest easy in your chains tonight.
