    Can't Fight the Revolution

    I could write a lot on this topic, but I am supposed to be writing and essay (two actually, among other things as well) right now. Later, I hope, I will write about it more in-depth. When it comes down to it, whether people external to me perceive it or not (I suppose I have...

    Is It Worth The Effort?

    I suppose at my age I really have to ask whether I should expend effort on certain things or just let it go. Of course some things like traffic road rage incidents are pretty obvious. Let them win, who cares. They may even have a gun. You just never know anymore. The problem I...

    Complicate

    The problems of the world always seem an easy fix to me. Teach the hungry to grow food; teach the poor that only socioeconomics place that label, as long as the basic needs are met, and you have love, you are not poor; teach the war ridden that, at any cost, you can't force your...

    Craving What Is Not

    The world never seems to be enough - I have always longed for a better one, more harmonious, more enchanted. A utopia of culture and dignity, close group of sensitive and deep people around me. Accepting reality is hard sometimes. I ask myself: Why can't people be more...

    Idealist And Proud.

    I'm an idealist, and I hope age does not take that away from me. Many great men (and women) in this world achieved what they did because they did not give up on their goal and their ideals. I hope I do not either. Fraser
