Discretion & Discernment

I really have ZERO respect for people who are not discreet. Discretion is the foundation of credibility and trust.

Discretion and discernment - i.e to use sense of judgement amount to the same.

Judgement is based on timing, place and events - i.e context. Anything out of context loses its value and hence its credibility.

There is a time and place for everything...there is a context for everything.

Blind power is force that transgresses limits, and Real power is always wise.

Claustrophobia...or Hell revisited.

The classical definition of claustrophobia is - fear of closed spaces.
This is a very limited, reductionist, simplistic, skewed definition of the term.

Claustrophobia has nothing to do with closed spaces, but it has everything to do with confinement.

When you find yourselves confined you become claustrophobic.

Confined is an interesting word - for me it means being limited, bound, restrained, held within certain parameters...

For some people claustrophobia can be an actual physical place, for others the parameters imposed by a relationship and for others it can be the familiar that is imprisoning.

Bearing the above definitions in mind, I guess am claustrophobic. I do not have fear of closed space, nor do I fear relationships, but the familiarity of human interaction makes me want to take a flight...

What do I mean by familiarity of human interaction ?

I mean patterns that repeat themselves. I mean the kind of people that are too predictable in their outcome, I mean the little detail that gives away a whole picture that you know by heart, I mean the revisited hell of something you have known, I mean when your radars go up and your alarms start ringing like church bells, I mean ---hell anyone who has an iota of sensitivity knows what I mean.

So really it's not claustrophobia after's just your inner operating system that tells you --- watch out, hell is very near - again.

Magic of Idiots...

I am daily, constantly confronted with Idiocy...I have come to believe that the village idiot is not the odd one out, but the whole mass is...

We are actually populated by the magic of Idiocy...This is the new ideology. Really am not kidding. Idiots are in vogue.

Sure you can't write - professional idiot - on your CV. You need to make it a little more flowery...beautify it with words...but really if you need to land anything these days - from job to lover -- be an idiot.

Idiocy pays in the new world order of things, in the new world order of Idiots. You know why ? Because that's the prevailing ideology, in whatever form or color it takes. So do join the bandwagon, you might make it, last minute...

The culture of Idiots is the culture of Mediocrity in the full sense of the word.

Of course if you're not mediocre, you will not understand it. It's like a foreign language to you...take my advice - learn it.

It's not that complicated once you get the hang of just need to fulfill the role of Dumb and that's about gets you there.

You see, Mediocrity is an intolerant motherfucker...It can't stand anything that is not like it.

It's like a parasite that feeds on its own for its own survival...

If you become Mediocre you will survive...I promise you that.

Darwin was an asshole...he did not understand the concept of Idiocy and its correlative Mediocrity. Had he done so...he would have called it the survival of the mediocre.

Our societies, our systems are designed to take a - or a + but nothing beyond or above...

Conformity is another word for mediocrity.

There are parameters laid before you - stating - there's so much we can take, we can accept or tolerate. Anything outside these parameters are an infringement.

Some of you react to this, without even knowing go neurotic, phobic, and ultimately insane...

Others are happy to work within the parameters..they find in them comfort, familiarity, security...

Security is for idiots.

Why ?

Because security provides the ultimate illusion that things remain as they are...the same.

And only an idiot can believe that.

Short of Words...

It feels as if I have not posted in ages...
Am too taken by some sectarian Shia shit who's harassing me - deliberate evil on his part for no reason...for no objective reason except maybe because I am a non Shiite Iraqi- well yeah I don't like shit nor the smell of it...that's a good enough reason I suppose.
Anyways...seen too much so far. Fucking Mercy where are you ?
Guess I've got to go through another episode of the Sunni Witch Hunt...keep the motions going until the awaited Mahdi lands...somewhere in Mesopotamia.
Do nudge me when he a chalice filled with fresh blood to offer him.

In the meantime...until...I am going to listen to songs.

I like this one, understand nothing of the words...but no matter. I understand it all.
