    Sometimes I reckon that I'm destined to see-saw between anger and despair any time I take the pulse of what constitutes moral or political discourse. Should it be opinions on a forum, collumns in a newspaper, pundits, pseudo-intellectuals or protestors. I see total moral decay celebrated as evidence of freedom and objection, let alone prohibitive law, roundly attacked from all quarters.

    I see people at their very worst or most base celebrated as the finest examples of honesty or humanity and wonder why no one else has any qualms about it, instead going so far as to attack those who do as capricious tyrants whose objections are only thin vials for some unsatisfied perverse need for control.

    Most of the time what is being discussed is actually silently or quietly recognised as reprehensible in some way so instead of discussing a particular behaviour or conduct its side stepped altogether and instead abstract concepts like freedom are argued instead.

    Whatever way this pans out, usually as some kind of pissing contest or competition to appear the cleverest or even the most militant and myopic exponent of an ideology, I cant help but think that the ideas have consequences being repeated by the impressionable, less clever and even the disturbed or maladapted with pride.

    Contemporary libertarianism has almost ruined the concept of liberty altogether, I'm either cynical or losing hope.

    This is my second try at it. I gave up last year. This year it'll probably be more like Project 300, but still, I've kept it up for an entire year (or, I will have on 12/31).

    Imagine there's no Heaven
    It's easy if you try
    No hell below us
    Above us only sky
    Imagine all the people
    Living for today

    Imagine there's no countries
    It isn't hard to do
    Nothing to kill or die for
    And no religion too
    Imagine all the people
    Living life in peace

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will be as one

    Imagine no possessions
    I wonder if you can
    No need for greed or hunger
    A brotherhood of man
    Imagine all the people
    Sharing all the world

    You may say that I'm a dreamer
    But I'm not the only one
    I hope someday you'll join us
    And the world will live as one

    Imagine what music John Lennon would have composed if he were still alive.
