The extent to which relaxation is satisfying is directly proportional to the work one does preceding it; relaxation is best enjoyed when it is truly earned. Otherwise one has completely and utterly flatlined, and one's life pulse is but a weak quiver; a proposal that the splash most seek to make in life will only be accomplished if one undulates this pulse, and with it, necessarily, a call to action. Action that will inevitably demand relaxation.

Is it ironic, antithetical, and maybe even impious that I feel the need to say that my favorite word is entropy?

In reaction to today's NYTimes article entitled "American Exception: Unlike Others, U.S. Defends Freedom to Offend in Speech"...

Syndicated speech and published words are role models for the beliefs and behaviors we adopt as our own; their publication suggests an air of acceptability. We must be responsible with our words, therefore, so that we set a good example for ourselves, our neighbors, and our children to follow.

If we continue to proffer generalities of certain groups, for instance, we are giving credence to a notion that creates a reality that might otherwise have been different. In buttressing biases and preconceptions in our own minds, it is imminent that we will seek confirmation of them in our interactions with others. And by inducing behavioral confirmation of these perhaps erroneous charges, we have killed the potential for a member of that group to ever convey their true self. Do we really want to engineer fate through self-fulfilling prophecy? Is its only use to artificially elevate our own opinions of ourselves so that we can believe we would come out on top if natural selection were founded on a social hierarchy?

Most things are arbitrary until context channels them to relevance.

The fatal flaw of today's anti-utopia may very well be that we are used to getting what we want, instantly.

Obama-inspired thought :)

Those who feel injustice in their lives...cling to the virtues of propriety and moral rectitude as a social regulatory mechanism.


Accessibility to things material rests at one terminal extension of a fulcrum; at the other lies ability to hold these things sacred.
