ed's on 'Sabbatical'

I'm on a sort of 'sabbatical' at present.  Leaving behind singaporean affairs and moving on to other matters.

I've always thought that focusing on the aforementioned affairs tends to dumb one down after a bit as it does not provide enough problems and perspectives which can enable the maximal development of one's perspectival potential.  Well, if you focus your intelligence and potentials on to fixing children’s rattles, you’re never going to explore greater realms of inquiry are you.

Well, from hereon, it’s on to that which strains the brain beyond the fetters of the familiar and relatively superficial.  This site will still continue to bang on about British affairs though, as it’s problems are of a more spectral variety,  whilst focusing on general socio-cultural-philosophical affairs that has dogged the interest of the greatest minds in human history....along with continuing my interest in art, photography, music composition, and most recently, building a homemade high-lumens bicycle light;)

It's a 'calling' i suppose.  If you feel inclined to go beyond the familiar and popular, it's your destiny to do so.

  1. Good for you, Ed! It's a brilliant move to focus your intelligence on exploring greater realms elsewhere than fixing children's rattle. Importantly, you have already provided great insights to the evolution of singapore from a Malay nation to a Chinese nation which was carefully orchestrated by pap with the promotion of chinese cultures, elevation of the chinese race over others, the removal of multiculturalism, et cetera, et cetera. Though you have provided the education, it doesn't mean the people are educated.

    Your latest pursuit sounds interesting. Looking forward to hearing your experience on building a homemade high-lumens bicycle light.

    Keep well!

  2.  Hi John,

    Well, at least i can remain blameless in the events that have unfolded in singapore.  S/he who keeps silent in the face of evil, is complicit in it.  Anyway, the X-files goes, 'The Truth is out There'.  To add, 'The Truth can only be Out There if someone puts it there.'  To her/him who knows, lies the responsibility in doing so.  Job's done.  Time to move on to other issues, lest our fixation on the aforementioned keeps our potentials from growing through other experiences and issues. 

    Yup.  I'll certainly put up my experiences on the 'home-made high lumens bike light'.  See how it goes.  It's going to be interesting considering i have bugger all experience in this kind of thing;)

    Keep well too:)

The Inquisitive venture is a collaborative one. Let's collaborate.

Ad hominem is fine so long as it is accompanied with an argument, as opposed to being confused for an argument. In the latter case, deletion will follow.

Is singapore a tyranny, or are people to dumbed down to feel it?

The following is a consideration of the perspective posted at the site, 'article14'. The site, in discussing the so-called 'Black Sunday movement' whose members wear black and congregate at Starbucks - perhaps they have an unstated desire to boost Starbucks sales of overpriced beverages, or perhaps Starbucks is paying for their black garments...silly people - to express their support for the freedom of expression - brought up certain points that seem to be commonly held by the 'singaporeans' of today.

Manifesto Against Same-Sex Marriages and Homo-Promotion

My stand against homosexuality is based on the following.  It is a logical, rather than a personal, decision.

Under the slogan, 'the freedom to love', it in principle justifies incestuous, group, etc, marriages.  All it requires is 'consenting adults', without an inquiry into what it means to be an 'adult' in intelligent, moral, and introspective terms.

This in turn encourages a ‘go with your feel’ tendency, which in itself gives rise a myriad of tendencies that go unquestioned.  Right and wrong ceases to matter, and even if something is illegal, one can still view it as society just having its own bias against it, just as it once had a ‘bias’ against homosexuality.

‘Nothing is natural.  Everything is just a matter of preference.’  That is the basic thrust of this unfortunate situation.  In fact, having a preference is in itself seen as evidence of one’s intelligence.  No attention needs to be paid to intellectuals, thinkers, philosophers, sages, religious te…
