DM, lyrics from 'Heaven'

I dissolve in trust
I will sing with joy
I will end up dust
I'm in heaven......

.......making millions from stuff like this

Whilst 10s of 1000s of children die from poverty and hunger and disease daily,
Whilst Charities beg from the masses for funds to cure cancer to getting rid of poverty,
Whilst People are deprived of the means required to make more of themselves,
Whilst the poorer toil under the benevolent and transfigured self-absorption of the stars,

But yet, thanks to us, they can live their significance vicariously through us, and be lulled into complacency in the face of all of the above.

epilogue

They are certainly in a Heaven of their own creation, that thrives on the Hell of the reality that is left in their wake.

  1. I absolutely agree with you. How many people do realise that the pop stars, celebrities, artistes whatever names you want to call them are simply overpaid individuals who do nothing but contribute to the escapade of the people from the harsh realities of the world and thus do nothing to make the world a better place to live in...

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.

Well, V (singaporean chinese girl working in the UK....and now back for the holidays) kept bugging the crap out of me to write about this experience....so here goes.

I arrived in singapore on the 15th of Jan in the evening via SQ with V.  I got to the baggage retrieval belt first and quite immediately got the attention of the customs police standing at the checkpoint near the entrance to the arrival hall.  Well, never mind.
