"Mistrust those in whom the urge to punish is strong." Friedrich Nietzche

"Any and all non-violent, non-coercive, non-larcenous, consensual adult behavior that does not physically harm other people or their property or directly and immediately endangers same, that does not disturb the peace or create a public nuisance, and that is done in private, especially on private property, is the inalienable right of all adults. In a truly free and liberty-loving society, ruled by a secular government, no laws should be passed to prohibit such behavior. Any laws now existing that are contrary to the above definition of inalienable rights are violations of the rights of adults and should be made null and void." D. M. Mitchell (from The Myth of Inalienable Rights, at: http://dowehaverights.blogspot.com/)

Looking For It: a poem

He looked into the barrel once again.
What was it he was looking for?
And was it there?
He forgot what he was looking for.
So, deeply did he drink once more.
But only for a moment did he forget.
Then, what it was he was looking for,
He did go looking for it once again.
He looked into that narrow pipe once more.
Deep down inside it and, there…
Yes, there he found it. He was sure.
Yes, he saw it waiting there.
So, deeply did he drink once more.
Then slowly releasing his breath,
He reached forth carefully with his finger.
Squeezed carefully his finger seeking it…
And found it.
