Know thine enemy

July 2, 2004

i have no desire to see Michael Moore`s new film and this Bush administration does not fill me with confidence either. to me they are different sides to the same coin; excess.

they both prey upon the fears of people and use these fears to justify what they are doing. and they`re both profiting greatly as well. i posted The Boondocks comic earlier this week because i believe that we should never become so blinded by what we believe is right that we`re willing to do the wrong thing to support it. two wrongs have never and will never make a right.

do i agree with any neo-[insert evil of choice here]? not necessarily but that doesn`t mean they don`t have the right to speak. they do and more often than not it will do you good to listen, it will help you learn something; if not about them, about yourself. Sun Tsu said “Know thine enemy as thyself.”

there are things i believe strongly in, politics is not one of them there are too many grey areas and the basic principle of politics; trying to please everyone;  is flawed. i believe in the right on consenting adults to do what their hearts desire in the privacy of their home. i believe in the freedom of the press to investigate and present the absolute truth. i believe religion should have no part of governance. i believe we have a personal responsibility to ourselves and our children to do what is right.

and what is right you ask? i think it boils down to one simple rule; Don`t take what isn`t yours.

enjoy your weekend whatever you do and for the US residents and citizens, it might be a good time to reflect that the freedoms that being fought for all over the globe on a daily basis are willingly being sacrificed right here at home.
