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,

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.


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

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…
