The one thing I never thought I'd be accused of having; ample cleavage!

Isn't there?

There's always some kind of relief with the ending of a relationship.

Apathy Kills

Knowing someone just like you is liberating but sad at the same time.

Are people really entitled to their views?

Part 1
I'm trying to open myself to the idea of being unethical.
While I don't think I'd ever actually be that way, I'm exploring redefining the definition.

1) Who decides what's right and wrong?
A) You, obviously. (or for the those that can't think for themselves, your priest or religious leader)

2) On what basis do you decide?
a) What's best for you? b) What's best for the greatest number? c) What's best for the underdog?

There's no such thing. You make it up as you go along. :)

 Part 2
Yesterday I watched 12 years a slave. A difficult movie to watch for me. The atrocities leave me outraged.
A few things from the movie stuck.

- A large enough people thought that slavery was alright.
- There were enough who believed otherwise.

 To more good people

Part 3
I was thinking about this.
- The Pharaohs had their slaves
- The Feudal lords had their serfs
- The large corporations have us

Am I a slave? Do I mind? Have the corporations got the balance right? What about the Pharaohs and the Feudal lords? 

Part 4
I watched a documentary on Karl Marx yesterday and while I didn't necessarily agree with his purported ideas, he left me inspired.
Part 5
In the Mahabharatha, as Draupadi was being stripped, blame was accorded 3 ways and with different weightage. 50% blame on the offender, 25% on the accomplice and 25% on the one who stands by and does nothing.

So far, there has only been one ideology I've come across that is so encompassing, succinct and ironic at the same time; it fits everything.

I'm going through a period of apathy. The only thing that can save me is my books.

If we have chosen the position in life in which we can most of all work for mankind, no burdens can bow us down, because they are sacrifices for the benefit of all; then we shall experience no petty, limited, selfish joy, but our happiness will belong to millions, our deeds will live on quietly but perpetually at work, and over our ashes will be shed the hot tears of noble people.

- Karl Marx
