This might make you cry – and then take a stand.
And he comes from Australia.
From last year:
Treating addicts with care rather than punishment works yet again. Are we ready to consider compassionate alternatives yet?
“It’s not a war on drugs; It’s a war on personal freedoms. Let’s keep that in mind at all times.” – Bill Hicks
“America is always last. Always first to compliment ourselves. Always last with the freedom and the bravery.”
I’ve come to the conclusion that there’s really not enough entertaining content (to me, anyway) in the realm of “politics” alone for me to keep up a strong pace here, and as the name of this blog indicates, what I’m concerned about is America, not beaurocracy.
I’m realizing that one of the main problems with politics is that it is entrenched in religion. Despite the claim of full separation, your church affects your chances of being elected head of state.
It didn’t always used to be that way. Abraham Lincoln didn’t go to church.
I think I must bring in what I believe to be the essential hidden truths of human spirituality. I understand the ideas I am going to post may seem ridiculous or scary at first, but they are not my ideas. They belong to many intelligent scholars. I just think, like Christians, that if you open your heart to the truth, you will be set free. Only, the truths I present will be very realistic and open to rational debate (read: very scary to some).
Some of these truths have been reported and confirmed for decades, but have remained hidden due to being condemned by the church (read: crushed by a powerful institution), or baselessly rejected (read: cowardly slandered by career-minded academics and public figures).
It’s weird to me that there are still such important truths out there that remain oppressed and hidden due to taboo, even with the internet! So I will take it upon myself to join those who have been bravely trying to shake off the shroud of fear, and bring about a new day of honest reflection.
I hope you like it.
