Passing scenes

Welcome to my page.I am Aniyan

I am an Indian proud of my nation’s its rich heritage and beauty. My viewpoint and opinions on various issues in this world are deeply rooted in the value systems of our culture. However I have a holistic approach towards these issues and believe in the harmony that I can see in the diversity of culture, language, climate, colours, and religions among nations of this world.

I welcome your observations opinions on areas of common interest and would like to constructively collaborate with you to contribute creatively for anything that is for the betterment of this world. I feel it is important to have such opinions. Errors of opinion may be tolerated where reason is left free to combat it.

My views may be weird and yours are worse.Accept it.

Beauty is eternity gazing at itself in a mirror
There are too many laws, and the wrong things are illegal. Drugs, sexual publications, hiring a housekeeper and not paying Social Security, jaywalking, loitering, nontraditional sex or marriage, paying someone less than a government-set wage, not wearing motorcycle helmets, owning or wearing guns, choosing your own medicines, designing or constructing your own house, owning software that can copy DVDs, exporting cryptography, driving at the same speed as the rest of the traffic; all these things should be legal. What laws have YOU broken this month?

Free Software means software that comes with freedom.Not software that has a price. In particular, it means software that gives everyone the source code (what programmers need to keep a program running and improve on it) and the right to use the program, modify it, and give or sell copies to anyone. The new buzzword for this is "Open Source", but it's been called "Free Software" for decades.

World Governance
The government says we are always at an "Elevated" threat level. They have no plans to ever reduce this reported threat level down to "Low", no matter how many years of untroubled life we go through. It's like the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists' "doomsday clock" which in over fifty years has never been shown with less than 17 minutes remaining before Armageddon. Well, 17 minutes have ticked past more than a million and a half times since 1947, and the bombs haven't blown us up. These are both scare tactics, not real reflections of reality

Any country that makes every citizen a felon is heading for real trouble. We need to reform the legislative system that keeps producing too many of the wrong laws.
