One's Utopia is Someone Else's Dystopia! ©


I know I am a Champion Defalcator and a Top Plagiarist but I believe these two expressions are mine.

So I won't respect your copyrights but don't you trample on mine! LOL

Anyway digressing already and I haven't even started yet so here it is. 

This article here makes me shake my head at this whole world again.  Apparently I am not bipolar I am just antipodal. Which ever antipodes the world stands on, I am at the opposite one.

This world is definitely spinning at a much faster speed than I can muster and I am losing track on many things, for instance I am grateful everyday that I do not have to raise children in this day and age ( my time is done) and I wouldn't have a clue on how to fight an entropic world creeping in deeper everyday but there are a few things I know how NOT to do. As a matter of fact I am much better at the NOT than anything else.  

Maybe this is why Truth is NOT a WORD but a NON-WORD instead: 

alētheia ἀληθεια   - the absence of concealment

I always prefer the negative Golden Rule to the original one.
My negative Golden Rule says: Do NOT do unto others what you DON'T want them to do unto you. 
i.e. don't lie , don't steal, don't cheat, don't betray, don't kill, don't hurt etc
Not easy to live but much easier and simpler to me in its complexity than the original Golden Rule: Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. What the Hell is this supposed to mean now? And where does it start and where does it end?

I must be boring as hell to read since I never seem to concentrate or get on (and moreover STAY) to the subject but I would like to think there is a method to my madness. :)

So back to pollies and journos Utopia now.

Be afraid! Be very afraid! Once a government start controlling "morality" we are on a highway to hell.

I do not know why some parents are marked to succeed and others are marked to fail but it is absolutely OBVIOUS when you work in a public primary school: a few kids will do "no wrong"  and live a nice "normal" protected life and you can tell and many others will never amount to anything and there is nothing at all that can be done about it, no free will on earth will come to your salvation, you are doomed for life, live with it.  
Not sure what it is either but IT IS THERE, call it Karma, Destiny or bad luck in the socioeconomic ladder. 

Now how does one train a child in the way he should be I don't know but one is losing this power more and more today with social, political influences tying your hands and leaving you out of control.

But if I don't know how to do it I sure know a few ways how NOT to do it and that tight band of control and rigid laws is nothing but an appeal to what is called the rubber band effect or resistance or Al Capone in the prohibition.  The best publicity and sales booster to a book you can have is to ban it.

Every time man tries social political engineering/eugenics it spells disaster, it never fails.

I just simply wonder if one can CHANGE anything I mean really CHANGE?  

Paul Simon must have been enlightened when he wrote:

Now the years are rolling by me
They are rockin' evenly
I am older than I once was
And younger than I'll be and that's not unusual.
No it isn't strange
After changes upon changes
We are more or less the same
After changes we are more or less the same"

Maybe it is because 

a man hears what he wants to hear
And disregards the rest  

42% ...FORTY TWO PERCENT of the people support further age restrictions on Facebook.

Restrictions here, Prohibition there, let's legislate everything that moves and breathe and could be harmful so we don't have to THINK and be RESPONSIBLE for anything.

On one hand we condemn China and countries that have human rights and free speech issues and  on the other hypocritical hand we worship them secretly and want to emulate them without appearing as "bad" as "they" are.

Gulag and political prisoners: BAD
Guantanamo and Rendition: GOOD

1984, Brave New World, V for Vendetta among many other utopias/dystopias all try to teach us a lesson we are never learning.  History, the (not so) Holy Inquisition, the Prohibition: everything is trying to teach us something we totally refuse to get or comprehend.

Entropic Chaos is the law of Nature, Unstoppable, uncontrollable as impossible to halt as Death Itself.  Live with it, learn to live with Death as it is the ultimate goal of life.

Be Good YES by all means, Be Good but to yourself and to your family and that is where it stops.

Pro 22:6  Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.

Train YOUR child, do not let anyone train him/her for YOU.

Don't let nobody go there for you
Don't be satisfied with a second-hand life
Don't let nobody stifle or bore you
Handle your troubles or take on your strife
Don't let nobody live your life for you
Not your friends, not your kids, no not even your wife
If you want to know where the rainbow ends
It's you who´ve got to go there and find it my friend
