it's been so long snce my last post...

life has been well kept to its own pace. routine has been in power and dictated my hours.

though it sounds noring but i is pretty much well spent and i have been pretty happy.

rain keeps me happy and sharing my time with my music in my apartment is just great.

every once in a while...right there in my mailbox: apartment # 33...

there would be some flyers came from offices of some politicians...just to inform me of what they have been doing or even suggest their political stand points. most of the time their policies seem to get tied up tightly with religion beliefs.

here is my (silent) words (that is not quite silent, as i've sent them some of these words back to them).

1, politic and religion are not the same thing, althought it's been one since the pre-historic ages. so one could also argue that they are the same thing but for me they are NOT!

it is true that one who was/is the religion/creed/belief always has power to control. one of the reason is because people have tendency to 'believe' rather than to try to understand. believing, for them, is another way to overcome the unknown or unexplanable matters.

2. if you are a politician, you should be ashame of using religion to capture your votes. that's another way to lie to people who vote for you.

3. once yur are elected, you are then a representative of people who voted for you. you are not fully yourself anymore.

what you are sharing with them is the 'policies' that people have agreed with you. whatever decision you are going to make should be define and redefine by the mind of a person who thinks as s/he is those people, not yourself. the best is to stick with the policies you have agreed upon. put your feet into those people's shoes and walk over a hundred miles. don't just try to keep people's awareness about your existance by using religion beliefs as your damn ******* tools, aimingly to get elected again in the next seasons.

4. politic is not an occupation, it's a duty.

5, recall the old days when you once were just 'someone'...how good as a person you used to be?

....

i know it's impossible...

i also know that i am disgusted by those politicians..

ciao!

ps. i would love to send brown bags with two holes for eyes to most politicians. i think that's what they need to have to cover their faces.

With great power comes great responsibility - problem is most people cannot handle the responsibility, especially if it is unmonitored. The result is generally corrution which can only be compared to a virus in the society. This happens all over the world, not just thailand, USA cough....

Glad to see your posting again! :-) I am not here so often my self but nice to hear that you are fine prosperous flower back home!

Well - religion and politics has I believe always been useful tool for justified power over people. And politics and religion have always walked hand in hand like two unseparated ambiguous ways to rule people?s life and destinies.

Well Jane,

You raise some interesting and difficult points. On the one hand you're saying you don't want politicians mixing in religion with politics. And on the other hand, that politicians should act on the will of the people, not their own views.

But what if in a particular place the majority of the people are religious and want their politicians, their representatives, to incorporate religion into politics and government?

Some politicians aren't really religious at all, they are hypocrites, but pretend to care about religion because a lot of the voters are religious. We see that in the US a lot.

Then there is the issue of the politician voting or acting only on the will of the people. Most of the time that is what he should do. That's why he is an elected representative.

Nonetheless, there are times where the people are wrong. So what should the politician do if, say, most of the voters in his district believe Asian people shouldn't have the right to own land? Blindly follow what the people want? Or stand up for what's right? Did we elect this man or woman to simply obey our dictates? Or did we elect them because we believed they had the intelligence and good judgment to know what's right? Even when we are wrong.

John F. Kennedy wrote a Pulitzer Prize-winning book called "Profiles in Courage" that examined exactly this point. He profiled six senators who went against the will of the people who elected them and stood up for what they believed was right. Some lost their seats in the Senate. For others, the people eventually came around to realize they did the correct thing.

Kennedy believed that these men, for following their conscience instead of the will of the people, had courage and should be honored.
