I fully understand what you're saying Simon. I also understand the concerns of others as well. However, there is one important aspect of what Simon
here I think is grasping that is being missed. Stop and ask yourself, "What is the Goal of Terrorism?" Possibly to create a state of Terror, Fear,
Panic, etc., ya think?
I'm not trying to play down an obvious Security Loss in the fact that people beaming the Prime Minister with an unknown object, possibly poisoning an
entire group of Parliament should not be happening. However, it's not exactly a new event either. Whether it's some stupid kid mailing himself
home undetected through security or whatever, getting all worked up and giving into EXACTLY what potential Terrorist are trying to achieve may not be
the best reaction either.
Throwing rotten fruit, eggs, or whatever at officials who are repeatedly failing to deliver on their claims and causing Nation after Nation to live in
a confused and stressful world might be just what they deserve. Apparently all this attention to Security and all these resources that are being
thrown into the fire seem to result in Nothing. Grabbing the hunting rifle and running off to play commando out of Fear or Anger is only going to
cause more problems. I don't think Simon is apathetic about what is happening, I just think he has realized the importance of Living Ones Life in
the way One should do as a Free Individual.
These Officials are the ones who've set up all these New Security Measures ans so forth which have failed continuously. They may just be getting a
glimpse of what happens when you try to B.S. your way through your job, with lies and cover-ups. Personally, I'm not going to give any Terrorist or
anyone else the satisfaction of even playing their games or changing my Life of Freedom and Pursuit of Happiness, giving in to their tactics. F*ck
them and their MonkeyMan Methods of Terror, War, Genocide, and so forth. I'd rather live by my own rules for one day, Free and Happy, than live by
someone else's rules and control just so I could continue another day, month, year, etc. I simply will not admit that a repressive regime of
whoever, is significantly important as it only adds to their satisfaction. Until the rest of humanity can mature and wise up, getting past this
stupid failure of a fantasy that War and Killing is Fun and/or necessary, I will continue to treat them as the pathetic annoyance that they are and
If the Warmongers have a problem with that, let them shoot their phalic shaped Missiles and Toys at me in frustration over there lack of any real
Intelligence and Manhood. I'll be enjoying myself, on my terms, having a pint with Simon awaiting either for them to Wake Up or for my surrounding
to Blow Up. Either way, when that time comes, I will be smiling' because of the fact that, to quote Sinatra, "I did it my Way."
