That's true. I've looked on the internet but it's all a bit general. I'll take a stroll into town on Monday and check it up in the library.

HI Tom I've been thinking about that theory of yours regarding childhood happiness and political leanings. There could be more to it than I initially thought. In a couple of weeks I'll be visiting the library i'll see what I can dig up.

That electric Universe will blow a fuse Tom.

Tom thanks for extending the invite. I've been an athiest since the 70's and have become more so since.

I see religion as the handmaiden of fascism and oligarchs.

I find it absurd and pathetic that so many still embrace the superstition and denial of real humanity that religion demands.

You and I will be long gone before the world will be free of the bonds of theocracy, but every movement has to start somewhere.

Thanks, Tom.  It isn't that well written, but I think I get my point across.

Thanks for the invite, Tom.  Hope to have some good discussions with you.  Since we are close to the same age, there probably won't be too many disagreements though..

Thanks for clarifying. The reason I used the collective 'we' instead of the singular 'I' was because I was aiming for something inside the comfort zone of the reader. Hoping to rattle cages enough that maybe I get some folks to reconsider their stance on self-ownership. Sorry about misunderstanding your comment.

The place where you left the comment is at this link:

If you could let me know who I plagiarize I'd appreciate it. I didn't mean to.

At 11:55am on January 21, 2015, Čenek Sekavec said…

You wrote as a comment on my blog titled 'personal responsibility':

"Consider the words you borrowed from someone you didn't acknowledge:

As long as we are living the only power over us is that which we allow."

Tom, The idea is hardly new but from whom did I plagiarize?? I take it seriously, and I looked online to double check and found no quote that I failed to attribute.

At 12:52pm on January 15, 2015, Čenek Sekavec said…

Hey Tom, you said I borrowed words without acknowledging their source. From where??

I'm asking here instead of bumping an old post. I only just read the comments.
