This first post stands as a reflection and definition. To start, the definitions, when I use the following words (and more) these are the definitions that will be meant. (As to prevent misunderstanding)
The Non-Aggression Principle or (NAP) is a moral stance which asserts that aggression is inherently illegitimate. Aggression, for the purposes of the NAP, is defined as the initiation or threatening of violence against a person or legitimately owned property of another.(Block, 2003)
Peace – a state of mutual harmony between people or groups,especially in personal relations (peace. (n.d.).
Druidism – a form of modern spirituality or religion that generally promotes harmony and worship of nature, and respect for all beings, including the environment.(Wikipedia, 2012)
This is the basis for my beliefs and philosophy generally guides me the rest of the way. I am individually spiritual (I do things on my own) and am very private with it, but I do believe that no matter the god(s) or goddess(es) one may believe or worship, there is always a push for peace. This peace is called upon most notably by loving thy neighbor.
While this paints me as a very peaceful and caring individual do not expect perfection. I am human, and unless I put myself to the task, very little of what I do is perfect. (Meaning without blemish or error). Now that there is some basic information on me, I will get to what I want to do with this blog.
The purpose of this blog is exposure, of ideas, philosophies, and as a sounding board for my ideas. I have always found it helpful to talk things out, until I understand them, then do more research and talk some more. This will be the main purpose, while also organizing and solidifying my beliefs, understandings, and general discontent for the hatred that flows rampantly from every orifice in the world.
Due to the discontentment, I engaged in political discourse, propaganda, and in rare circumstances, even vote.(Though more so of late).
This will serve as an introduction and the rest of my blogging will, hopefully be done, in a more organized manner.
On that note a quote:
I count him braver who overcomes his desires than him who conquers his enemies; for the hardest victory is over self.
