    It's the opposite side of The Endarkening.

    The Cat is a fey, mercurial thing, given to fits of pique, moody silences, and eerie displays.

    Health, Knowledge and Justice should be out the Market (be all in public).

    Without Health you have SICK STATE.
    Without Knowledge you have UNEDUCATED STATE
    Without Justice YOU DON'T HAVE STATE AT ALL.

    Truly.

    16 the people dwelling in darkness have seen a great light, and for those dwelling in the region and shadow of death, on them a light has dawned." (Matthew‬ 4‬:16‬ ESV)
    To sit in darkness means to be overcome by spiritual ignorance. The great light is the gospel of Christ.

    This is very wrong in a discussion of enlightenment -a Buddhist concept.

    Unlike Christianity, Buddhism doesn’t believe in light=good dark=bad. I’m sure you know what a Yin Yang is ( though originally Taoist it was adopted by Buddhism) a balance of light and dark are essentially. Without one the other doesn’t exist. Just like the concept of goid and evil, there just ‘is’. Such is enlightment.

    Now, Rise up and riot 'til the bomb drops
    Now, Rise up the time is right to sound off, so
    Rise with me, rise with me, rise with me (RISE UP!)”

    I agree. Buddhism surely has aspects of Truth to it.
