I am in love with this answer:

The Devil Card
You are the Devil card. The Devil is based on the
figure Pan, Lord of the Dance. The earthy
physicality of the devil breeds lust. The
devil's call to return to primal instincts
often creates conflict in a society in which
many of these instincts must be kept under
control. Challenges posed by our physical
bodies can be overcome by strength in the
mental, emotional, and spiritual realms. Pan is
also a symbol of enjoyment and rules our
material creativity. The devil knows physical
pleasure and how to manipulate the physical
world. Material creativity finds its output in
such things as dance, pottery, gardening, and
sex. The self-actualized person is able to
accept the sensuality and usefulness of the
devil's gifts while remaining in control of any
darker urges. Image from The Stone Tarot deck.

"The devil's call to return to primal instincts often creates conflict in a society in which many of these instincts must be kept under control. Challenges posed by our physical bodies can be overcome by strength in the mental, emotional, and spiritual realms."

But, I beleive that we should return to nature. And our bodies are telling us to, but people fight it off. We should stop fighting off our urges that nature gives us. We let things control us, which is wrong. We should be free of everything. Freedom isn't the right idea for america. We aren't free. We still are harassed by our religious, political, social, all beliefs. We are harmed by other countries and causing a huge uproar, where it isn't needed. And all the complications with computerized items and more work, we are the total opposite of freedom. We are tied down to our work. We are not free.

If "freedom's just another word for nothing left to lose"- Janis Joplin, then we aren't free. We have everything to lose, in this day and age. What she is saying is, is that to be free we would have nothing left in our lives to be taken away physically. When we have things that can be taken away physically that cause us pain, we aren't free. I believe in that.

What do you guys think?

Hello all. I am new to here. I've been posting in my personal journal my theories and such. I have so many theories and opinions. But, it's hard to find an ear to listen, because I am only 15. And most teens aren't looking to discuss world issues and such. They're usually worrying about school or a love interest. Which I have both of, but I also feel that I love to discuss the world and everything.

So, I'll be writing in here. Give me your ear, comment if you'd like. Ok, I just wanted to introduce myself. So, thank you for reading, and I hope you post an interesting entry soon.

Ladies and Gentlemen!
Once more, landvaettir brings you news of the inimitable rex_monday. I am crossposting this to several communities. If the moderators have a problem with this, they may delete it or, alternatively, bite me.

His Erraticness will be residing at HM Prison, Welford Road, Leicester, LE2 7AJ for at least a month. If you wish to write to him, do, and write on the envelope the name 'Edwards' and the number 'JH9179'. All letters must have the sender's name and address on it, or it will not be delivered.

He states that no doubt he will be extremely bored, and actively encourages letter writing. He will reply to as many letters as paper and stamp supplies allow. Anyone wishing to dream-visit or send him sigils is also encouraged.

I am visiting him tomorrow, and may or may not let you know how it goes. Check his personal journal for further details and/or queries.

Cross Posted like crazy

So I created a diary for me to rant about politics, as well as other people. Join, I'd like this to work. I don't care if you're Liberal, Conservative, Independent, Commie or what, I just like it.

Hi all!

I got a question and am hoping for many answers. :) I'm preparing a short article on frienship and free time activities, and I decided to make a survey. I would appreciate if you could all finish the sentences:

About my friend, I appreciate...

With my friends I like to...

The funniest thing we do is...

I don't expect the obvious answers, like "in my friend I appreciate their honesty" or "with my friends I like to go to the movies." I believe those are some things we all expect in a friend and things we all do. Be original! Think of something unusual that you and your friend share.

I'll give you an example of an answer to the last question: 'the funiest thing we do'. My friend and I always prepare ourselves for travels. We go over maps, we decide where we need to go and how much time we will have. The thing is, we never travel together. :)

OK, now you can write why your friendship is so special. :)

Someone had to [May. 30th, 2004|11:47 pm]

[Current Mood |deviousdevious]
[Current Music |Norah Jones - The Long Way Home]

I'm tired of watching this community die. It seems the pitfall of every community based around those who deem themselves intelligent; members post introductions, a few intelligent posts are made, then the mandatory idiot with the grammatical sense of a cat with a speech impediment, makes an attempt at a post, thus killing any seed of unity or exclusivity. The community is then reduced to a few offhand remarks, and it becomes just another dead link on an info page.

But not this community. I'm not going to allow that. I'd rather abduct it, take it to Miami and hide in a closet till an SS trooper...I mean FBI agent... comes storming in with an loaded MP5 to rape it out of my arms and leave me crying in Spanish. ¡No esta comunidad!

So I propose a weekly forum on issues that not only affect us, but also are interesting.

Of course, this typically means highly controversial issues that will bring out the hardliners of both sides, but I'm willing to forgo the stagnant behavior of some to stimulate the community and possibly bring about a revival.

So, with out any more pomp and prompt, lets pick an issue worth discussing.

It seems that the majority of this community, if not all of lj itself, is composed of white people. I would suspect the majority of you are middle to upper class. So what I say next might jade a few of you(I'm hoping so, at least).

Caucasian Americans owe a monetary restitution to African Americans for the use of slave labor in America from 1775 to 1865, and then the unlawful acts committed by the government from 1865 to 1965. These 200 years of American indecency towards African Americans is the major reason for the minority status of African Americans.

a discussion question about the U.S. mandatory auto insurance system... [May. 23rd, 2004|05:48 pm]
Intelligent Ones

I'm really curious about how people feel about something. The mandatory private auto insurance system. In the U.S., that is. People outside the U.S., feel free to ignore this unless you want to learn more about this insane country that is probably planning a war against you or one of your friends right now.

I'm particularly curious about how the conservatives and libertarians feel about it. It seems like there are numerous problems with the system as currently constituted from every imaginable political spectrum.

Read more...Collapse )
So what do we do about it?
We have got to have SOME way of compensating the victims of car accidents, and nobody, except the wealthy, can afford to do so out of their pockets. So some kind of insurance is mandatory. The current system is badly broken, because it is pricing a huge number of people out of the market for insurance, despite the fact that, in order to have a functioning economy and functioning society, those people must be allowed to drive. Something must be done. I think the left and the right can agree on that. What? Cut the ambulance-chasing plaintiff's lawyers down to size? That runs the serious risk of depriving real victims of their rights, and, realistically, with the staggering cost of simple things like auto parts, probably won't make too much difference.

Personally, I'd like to see single-payer, just fund insurance through the tax system. Then have tax penalties for bad drivers. Done nationwide, there would be no need for the ludicrous kinds of discrimination (age, sex, marital status, profession, you name it, they do it) we put up with now. We could simply charge the people with tickets and accidents proportionally more, because the system would be able to survive a few initial errors, because of sheer scale. However, we can't even get single payer health insurance, like the other civilized industrialized nations, so I don't see single payer auto insurance coming any time soon.

So what's the solution? Anyone?

I'd especially like to hear from the conservatives and the libertarians here. Are you happy with the way this works? What would you do to fix it?

I think I'm going to cross-post this widely to political/debate/discussion groups...
