Where do you go on from here? Do I like to sing the song of endless remorse, a remorse for the world, for the people who do evil things? It is due to such afore mentioned people the world is in such decay. It has nothing to do with sex on television; or so called "gangsta rap"; the pants that might ride too low or too tight; republican or democrat; it is due to the people who do evil things.

People believe I have a hatred for Republicans, and for a while I thought that I did, but I do and did not. I just don't agree with their politics (philosophies) and not all of them some of the republicans philosophies are really well thought out and agreeable. The people who I do have contempt for are the people who try to do harm to those who cannot defend themselves: the little man, the underdog, the forgotten. What these evil people do the less fortunate is a heresy in itself, and should never be defended. Those with power should help and protect the less fortunate [This is not some radical left wing socialist agenda Jesus helped the little man, preached and that the little man should be helped.] I feel that people who take the Holy Bible and use it to undermine the people's rights have also committed sin, for it is similar to using the Lord's name and word in vain. Now I know I'm not a practicing Christian, but I do occasionally read scripture and talk about it; I am just a guy jotting a few thoughts down. I honestly don't know all of Jesus disciples (but they don't know me either); and I don't know all of the 10 commandments.

I guess I should explain why I don't "practice"; I feel that religion should be a private matter, which at most should be shared with the family. I do not need someone to tell me what is good and what is bad. I am a human with able cognitive abilities, and I know shooting someone is not only morally irreprehensible but legally wrong. It is in fact one of the reasons I will not hit anyone, I feel it is wrong. I will react in self-defense, please don't believe I will not, but I don't go looking for fights either.

The only fights I tend to fight are ideological fights; because it tends to have an effect on everyone, and I feel that the good should go to the many not the few. This tends to put me against some people, if it is for the betterment of the people so be it. For this I have been accused of being a communist, I AM NOT A COMMUNIST I don't believe this communist, communism will not work, because it is forced upon the people this really goes against the idea of socialism anyway because it is not really for the people.

You cannot force people to be a socialist it is not inherent in people to be socialist, because most people look out for themselves first. This is not because they are inherently greedy, it is a long drawn out survival instinct. For some this instinct has been forged away deep down never to be tapped, unless something causes this survival instinct to expose itself.

On the note of survival I think I will end this. It has been interesting to re-read and write. It has been fun too; it has allowed me to see who I am as a person, and show people who I am as a person. I now realize I embrace 2 different yet similar religions, which might seem weird but it is true. I am a Buddhist, because I want to seek inner peace and tranquility (selfishly I guess [goes back to survival]). I am also a Christian (with no denomination), for a long time I was agnostic and then became a Buddhist and now I know most religions are all the same (in the basics) belief in a higher being, morality, having faith, having to trust in people, and finally realizing true tranquility must be sought with the help of others.

Well gentlemen and ladies; girls and boys on this note my essay is over it is finished.
