Why Problems such as Abortion, Global Warming, Wealth Distribution, and Many Others are far from Being Solved
Well, there are indeed a wealth of problems:
Women being unequal to men
Existence of God
And anything else you can think of
In any case, it’s blatantly obvious why I’m composing this article. Because a writer possesses a duty to write on subjects of great controversy in our society as to attract the public’s eye, thus people will agree or disagree but either way the writer achieves what he so cleverly desired: to obtain publicity for his piece and stir things up a bit more, causing a ripple effect. This, my friends, is a very diminutive explanation as to what a writer attempts to gain from writing; that and the pleasure of writing, of course.
So you’re asking by now, “What’re you getting at?” Well here’s the gist, these issues (as some consider them) are light years away from being solved because it’s all about moral OPINION. And as much as I believe that individuals have the right to express their opinions, they belong nowhere in the “real world.” One may say, “Abortion is wrong because only God is allowed to take a life,” and another may counter-argue with, “It really comes down to each individual who decides to do it or not do it.” Well, it’s a long line of opinions, and no one can get anything done with mere beliefs. There has to be evidence, persuasion.
Everything goes hand-in-hand, and so if one were to argue that abortion is the work of the Devil, because God would never permit such a malevolent act, then one has to prove the existence of God. And even that, to this day, is debatable. What your religious inclinations are I have no interest in; what I’m simply attempting to state is that there isn’t concise evidence as to whether or not God(s) exist(s). And then scientists come in and say it was the Big Bang, and then various religious folk come in and say it was God and attempt to give reasons, and both sides war over who is the victor, the correct one. The truth of the matter is that there is no victor, because there is a lack of evidence. Now, if Jesus came from the clouds and walked on water and transformed it into wine afterward, then you’d bet your sweet ass I would bow down and worship him.
That hasn’t happened up until now, so I remain skeptical. It’s the same with everything else; it all boils down to morals. Some say global warming is caused by us, the inhabitants not taking proper care of our Mother, but some scientists have theorized that due to global warming we’ve prevented a mini-ice age from dooming us all! (By mini I mean a couple thousand years) Others are also attempting to relate the peak of the periods in which the Sun ejects sun spots and relate that to global warming: the highest period of sun spots results in much higher temperatures, basically. They have evidence, but is it enough to prove it? The answer is no, and whatever you believe in, make sure to stick with it because no one is really right (so far).
One thing I must mention though, is that people should mind their own business. Whether or not someone gets an abortion or recycles, or is richer than you, or has a different religious denomination than yours, just leave that person alone. You have your beliefs and they have theirs; you believe yours are right and vice versa. Don’t mistake your duties as a member of society with a false duty to “save” individuals from whatever you believe in, that a person is living a misconstrued path and he should follow yours because yours is “right.” No one likes an over-exaggerative, bible thumping bigot, so piss off and let others be. Of course this is just my moral opinion, so you shouldn’t really listen to me, either. He he.
In any case, comment and share your mind (there’s me doing my job as a writer).
These past few weeks have been rough and I’ll shortly describe why. As they say, you are your own worst enemy and in this case I believe it is true. These last few weeks when I am not here posting an article, I am away at my computer conjuring new things in mind, and a lot of it recently has been involvement with Tunngle tutorials.
To those who don’t know what Tunngle is it is essentially another VPN solution. Think of it as a mix between Steam, Garena, and Hamachi all rolled into one and its great for playing LAN games over the Internet easily without trouble. This article is not to talk about Tunngle, but merely to express where most of my time has been lately.
Anyway, if anyone is familiar with Youtube, you can upload your own videos and if your videos are something that is important to people, you will bound to get questions. No tutorial or video I have seen is question free. There is always and I mean always that one guy in the crowd who needs clarification on something, even if it is obvious to the creator or to other people.
Every week I post your questions with my answers. If no one submits a question, then I will make up my own question so that people can learn.
To submit your question to V1, please go here: Underground Form
Question 1: This question is from Peter:
What is a good way to increase underground knowledge?
What do you mean by underground knowledge? Hacking, cracking, console modding, torrents, warez, piracy, getting things done, etc? I don’t know what to tell you. If you are into the P2P scene, you can’t go wrong learning from torrentfreak.com, zeropaid.com, and slyck.com as a start. If you want to learn more about technology, visit afterdawn.com or get your daily dose of cool news at digg.com.
Question 2: This question is from Mark:
I like to download movies all the time from the Internet, and I don’t feel bad at all about it. Is this normal?
It depends. Are you an ethical person or not? Obviously, you wouldn’t go into a store and shoplift a DVD movie, but yet you torrent movies from the comfort of your own home and it doesn’t bother you. Is it because it is convenient? Don’t think you can get caught? Thousands of people of downloading the same movie, so what are the odds of you getting nailed? Thinking like this helps people justify their downloads, even if it is wrong.
So in short, yes for some people downloading movies and whatever else bears no fear upon their conscience. I am going to say yes this is normal, but if you really like the movie, I suggest you buy it.
Question 3: This is from Bigmitch1998:
IM NEW??? WONT TO KNOW HOW TO RESPOND BACK IS THIER A CHAT ROOM I CAN MYBE?????LEARN HOW TO DO A FEWW THING
There is no chat room for the underground. Even if there was one, the odds of me being online at the same time that you are is very slim. If you need to contact me, there is my email on the right hand side of this blog.
This is enough questions for this week. Next week I will answer another round of questions. I hope that guys have something more interesting, as this is weak sauce. ;0
