Letter to the President #3

Fight the Power – A Confession

The life of a rebellious person is made more difficult by the accumulation of knowledge.  As I grow I see there is a constant temptation to use knowledge as a defense against, what is innate in some people, the tendency to advocate for justice, in the form of the complacency that can come with comfort.  […]

Akbar’s Maxim #2 – Survival of the fastest

There are 3 approximations of cultural relativity that are appropriate to define in a time like ours, one of logarithmic increase of change.  First, there is the awareness of culture as a response to individualized environments, which brings about a more nuanced understanding of morality.  Then there is living with this knowledge that changes the […]

You might be a slave if…#1

You might be a slave if your labor benefits the owner way more than it benefits you. You might be a slave if every job seems to contain the same numerical trap. You might be a slave if when your company is sold, you get sold with it, and you lose your benefits, while the […]

Akbar’s Provocations #1 – Dumb and Dumber

99 percent of human beings are intellectually shallow, dumb. Most people are creatures of habit, dependant upon a system that promises to satisfy their basic desires and because they are attached to these promises they are very resistant to the critical thinking required to accept radical changes in the system or the ideologies that are […]

Posted by on Nov 5, 2009 in Choken Word, Universals

Moments in time like quick footsteps. Flying by throughout your mind and sometimes One must look back and think of the path they have taken and what was learned. I have lived recklessly and taken chances. I have not treated my body like a temple. I have been close to the edge and found my […]
