What I criticize and what I don’t? Reply

Previous title; Who I criticize and who I don’t?

Casual heroes and heroins and their ripened silence and immature hypocrisy.

Friends this is a general comment of the purported political nature of some of my criticism posts — on social media, which consists, mainly, G+, twitter, FB and occasionally my own website, and these type of criticism is only perhaps 10%.

I am not keeping a tab of the composition, but if I post a link of some discovery or some events, that I do not follow myself greatly, but just want to share, I do so, and that perhaps covers more significant numbers of my posts, on such social issues. Also more than 75% of my posts are perhaps simply neutral from a preposterous political view point. See what I mean, here, here and here.

So my own criticism may be significant, but I share a lot of views and opinions and analyses from others. This is also a modus operandi of how and what I am willing to believe, as opposed to what party line I would lick with impunity.

There are tons of events or news from here and there and only few involves important issues, that are being discussed elsewhere. If you are one of my regular post comment-er I would take your comments with as much sincerity as they are made with. In other words my alarm bells would not be ringing “caution”, I have already some kind of trust working between you, my reader, and me, the post maker.

But a one time comment that simply picks up on a particularly psychic paranoia of one self and projects as a generic nature of my existence, may not be seen with much impunity. More…

The problem of eating beef. Reply

Is eating beef an act which is so morally repugnant that it can take lives? We wouldn’t imagine such with an ideally and intellectually sensitive human society. But we don’t, we live in communities which does not care so much about what it can infer as “other’s” ways. Lets not get ourselves embroiled, to believe that, thats a superfluous statement.

One would argue, we do care about others values and culture and others ways of looking at things and at a grosser level others comfort in riding a public transport, others availability and unavailability in attending to us for what we need them for.

But, I am talking about “others” as a mark of identification and not an immediately concocted response, to deal with a social situation.

At a deeper level, we often transgress, into interfering with others ways, simply because, we identify them as ‘others’. We deliberately create a ruckus, about ‘issues’, simply because, the issues do not affect us the way we perceive it affects others.

Its dishonesty and its violence. Read a short article here why I think “dishonesty is violence”.

We gang up on others and create false notions of vulnerability and mark others as adverse, simply because we have deep prejudices of defining our roles and identifications, as being markedly different, from what we confer onto those, that would not fit into such roles.

One of the determinant, in delving into making a demarcation of what constitutes ‘others’, is the idea of proving superiority. And its an age old problem, but more than that it prevails in today’s communities, in a way it would not let us make progress as humans. More…
