Last week, reports circled my tiny twin-island Federation of a chillingly double murder. Guns can allow for quite the distance between victim and perpetrator but not so with chop wounds as reported. Many people don't want to know "why" this happened because they argue that there's no justifying it. Many will express an interest in … Continue reading The Importance of Understanding the Reasons Behind Offender’s Motives
I quite like the concepts behind the "Law of Attraction". I wonder though if it's "attraction" or (natural) "selection".
😐 Sooo, you can do all things through God who strengthens you yet you're "powerless" to positively affect the lives of those he instructed you to love as thyself... 🙄 ☝️😌 Well, either you can't in fact do all things through God as the Good Book says or you can and do but God is … Continue reading Powerless or Wilful?
It's not figures with more commas than the average sentence that changes things. Dollar bills and coins bare the head of deceased individuals — no arms, no legs, no intentions. It's not them but us who make things happen; they are mere middlemen. They bare no power, not even potential. What they do however, is … Continue reading Dollars spent; where’s the change?

I don't like making comparisons because people often focus on the example not the message but observations like this are the reason I focus on refining the substance of my thoughts, … Continue reading Risking Obscurity

This "happiness" we define as an individual and independent, rather than an intertwined and interdependent quest. So we're simultaneously insignificant and the … Continue reading Inconsequential Us?
"I don't care who gets murdered, robbed or assaulted; once me and mine are good, all's well." And while this certainly isn't how I think, it's what I'm told I ought to think everything my selfless motives are discouraged and I'm encouraged to put self above all else. Question though, isn't this self-interest what informs … Continue reading Who cares?

There’s life as we know it personally; life as we know it second-handedly; and though virtually always ignored, life as it could be. We have the option of being unwitting consumers subject to the inertia of change or we can assume our intended roles as Architect, Engineer and Contractor. We are the engineers of our … Continue reading We are creators. The possibilities are endless.
"Actions speak louder than words" is one of those popular quotes we all know, but it's important we grasp its gravity. Actions don't speak... that is, unless the action itself is us speaking ha ha ha. "Speak" here means "communicate". But if actions aren't necessarily aural, "loudness" isn't necessarily a significant property of the mode … Continue reading Actions Speak Louder Than Words
There are a few young locals whose views, aims and efforts I respect. But while, en masse, youth grow more vocal in calling for their chance to steer the leader-ship — speaking of the vision youth would bring to it — most seem interested in the same two portfolios, the Ministry of Entertainment and the … Continue reading Youth On Leadership.
