Hey everyone who found their way here…
I took a bit of a break from blogging, but I’ve been itching to write about a few things lately. So I’m bringing back the blog and sort of starting fresh. I considered changing the name and making it actually topical, but I’m not using this domain for anything else, so I guess I might as well just continue to use it.
I think the vast majority of what I post will probably be on political or spiritual topics. I will also likely post things related to my own personal life, etc, but I don’t intend for that to be the main focus.
Now for a bit of a warning. I will almost certainly post things here that are controversial in some way. It is likely to offend someone, because people seem to like to get offended. I may have offended someone by saying that. If I offend you, know that it isn’t my intent. I’m not sure if I’m sorry or not, if it’s something that I actually think and not a matter of me being unclear, then I wouldn’t want to take back whatever it is, but, I guess I do feel bad that it offended you. Do with that what you will. Yes, this is a sort of apology in advance. All that said, I genuinely think that if you are a person who finds yourself frequently offended, that you spend some time evaluating why that is, what the purpose of being offended is, and what you think it accomplishes. I view a person who constantly says they are offended as being intellectually dishonest, and copping out, as though their being offended somehow invalidates an argument or an idea. To repeat a quote that I cannot properly attribute, but that I certainly agree with, “Being offended is fucking bullshit!”
Now that all that is out of the way, while I perceive this blog to primarily be just an outlet for myself, I would definitely be happy to have some back and forth with anyone who feels inclined to read it. And with that, I end this introductory post, and declare this blog begun!
(First post hopefully coming tonight, but maybe tomorrow. For now I’m out of time!)
