Jesus in the land of Goth…

Haiti, Tunisia, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Laos, Cambodia, Iran, Lebanon …

I don’t think I need to go any further with this list, you get the picture. We are not what we seem to be on the Internet, and I did many things before I ever picked up a camera.

The drive to find beauty in this life has it’s source in many places in the heart. Often it comes from seeing too many terrible things and a desire to create a visual gratitude list as a reminder of things that are now, not things that were then.

I think you misunderstand me Steve, and for that I must apologize. There are many different worlds in this ‘reality’ of ours, most of the time created in the minds of those that see.

I am not defending child and/or sexual abuse. I only hope in that some day in the future there can be a special Hell on earth that we can send the perpetrators of this type of crime.

This issue is not unfamiliar to me. When I first got out of the service I found work helping a special group within law enforcement to study the issue, and what I learned was far more disconcerting than I would have expected.

AS too ‘DP’ and her “April Fools Day’ mom’s quest for ‘justice’ on Flickr I think we can all agree we have been sucked in to a joke in bad taste at our own expense.

  1. Among all the great thinkers of the past two hundred years, Nietzsche continues to occupy a special place–not only for a broad range of academics but also for members of a wider public, who find some of their most pressing existential concerns addressed in his works. Central among these concerns is the question of the meaning of a life characterized by inescapable suffering, at a time when the traditional responses inspired by Christianity are increasingly losing their credibility. While most recent studies of Nietzsche’s works have lost sight of this fundamental issue, The Affirmation of Life brings it sharply into focus.

    Tarky7 identifies overcoming nihilism as a central objective of Nietzsche’s philosophical project, and shows how this concern systematically animates all of his main ideas. In particular, Tarky7 work develops an original and elegant interpretation of the will to power, which convincingly explains how Nietzsche uses this doctrine to mount a critique of the dominant Christian values, to overcome the nihilistic despair they produce, and to determine the conditions of a new affirmation of life. Thus, Tarky7 attributes to Nietzsche a compelling substantive ethical outlook based on the notions of challenge and creativity–an outlook that involves a radical reevaluation of the role and significance of suffering in human existence.

    Replete with deeply original insights on many familiar–and frequently misunderstood–Nietzschean concepts, Tarky7 examination will be essential to anyone approaching this towering figure of Western intellectual history.
