I'm sorry, but I can't help myself. The mantra I have always followed is "As long as it doesn't actually threaten anyone's safety or welfare, how others choose to live and what they choose to believe in is nobody's business".

That goes for birth control and abortion, those who willingly take multiple partners (polyamory), terminally-ill people choosing to die, those of one gender who choose to live as the opposite gender, et cetera... but especially two people of the same gender who wish to marry.

It just amazes me how several states have written discrimination into their state constitutions and/or laws. Didn't we learn anything from the civil-rights movement of the 1960's, led by Martin Luther King? Sure, this is a different group of people I'm talking about, but it's the same kind of situation. There is absolutely NO reason why these discriminative laws should be made, just because a person or group of people don't agree with it. "Because God said so" isn't good enough. Do we see gays or lesbians attacking heterosexual people because they're straight? No.

As I always say, life is too short to worry about what other people are doing in their bedrooms, especially if it's consensual. Life is too short to worry about things that aren't MEANT to be worried about.

A lot of my friends moved to united states to gain more freedoms. Today they write me that they begin to feel the same old spirit of theocracy as in the late days of USSR.

Martin Luther King was a great thinker, but I beleive that it is important to defend your rights, because if you don't defend them - there are always people who wish to take them away. They can use different means to implement their order be it a religion or terrorism, but the target is clear.

The lessons of Love and Light of the 60's are easily forgotten.

I was meditating on the subject and it came into my mind that the problems we see in the world today are brought by the fact that we continue to live by the standards introduced many centuries ago.
Traditions were meant to be kept, but they also were evolving. What we have now - is a mix of traditions and people who follow them blindly and do not want to develop or open their mind to something new.

Math with chaos theory gives us a perfect example of what could come out of imaginary order. Even in biology every living system tunes up to environment to survive.

In my opinion what's needed is a serious shake that will make us rethink and rebuild our foundations and purposes to match a new exciting world.

I normally don't see random people commenting on my journal--but I've liked the comments you've been leaving, especially this one. It so perfectly illustrates how I feel, especially because I'm bad at putting my thoughts into words. :)

Albert Einstein once said that God does not play dice with the Universe.

I happen to find your journal popping up in almost all interest areas I was puting my eye into. And I haven't even really started it up.

Karl Jung called it synchronicity.

I almost forgot to say what I really wanted to!

Nice to meet you!
