THE ROOT OF ALL EVIL (REVISITED)


The root of all evil isn't MONEY, contrary to popular belief. It's JEALOUSY. How so? Consider the greatest of all possible evils - MONOTHEISM - as expressed in the utterly psychotic statement: "Thou shalt have no other gods before me, for I am a jealous god." You may substitute "goddess" for "god" and the results are equally abysmal.

Just ask yourself this: if you were indeed the One and Only Deity in Existence, would you be constantly looking over your shoulder in anticipation of rivals or threats to your Absolute Status? In Barbara Hand Clow's nebulous tome, The Pleiadian Agenda, I was struck by a powerful quote attributed to the Prophet Isaiah: "Monotheism breeds fanatical anthropocentrism, which eventually destroys Earth." How absolutely and tragically true.


Such a jealous, spiteful, insecure, and vengeful deity can only engender generations of jealous, spiteful, insecure, and vengeful humans. The Old Testament records the first instance of murder in the story of Cain and Abel. The archetypal case of sibling rivalry wherein a deity plays favorites with two brothers over their ritual offerings and arouses a jealousy so intense it leads to fratricide. Fast forward to Abraham and his sister-wife Sara, whose greed and jealousy result in the unjust expulsion of Hagar, the servant who bore Abe his first-born son, Ishmael. Behold, the remote descendants of Ishmael (generically known as Arabs) to this day continue to be cruelly treated by the remote descendants of Sara's freak-birth progeny, Isaac (generically known as Jews)!


My wife of almost 15 years, Anoora, is a real cutie... except when possessed by the demon, Jealousy. This demon she inherited from her mother, whose emotional insecurity was pathological to the degree that it drove two previous husbands to drink, distraction and, eventually, divorce.

Jealousy is in itself a self-fulfilling prophecy, in that the person you proclaim to love - and whose exclusive devotion and sexual attention you demand - invariably begins contemplating the pleasures of strange flesh as soon as nagging suspicion begins to rear its ugly, deformed head.

I can happily swear eternal allegiance, affection, and friendship to anybody who has won my heart... but to insist on exclusivity seems to me the epitome of insanity. Imagine vowing to eat at only one restaurant your entire life. That's an insult to FOOD!

The crux of the problem is that monotheistic religions have programmed their followers into believing there is only ONE way to be married, and only ONE interpretation of wedded bliss - and that's MONOGAMY! {Okay, so Islam and Mormonism allow polygamy - but only on strictly patriarchal terms wherein a well-to-do man can have several wives/concubines but a woman can't have several husbands/toyboys. Pathetically dickheaded, if you ask me.)

My own parents were married for more than 60 years... but Dad probably had that many lovers on the side (and Mum quite a few too, though far more discreetly)... and most folks do indulge in a fair amount of "illicit" (read "unlicenced") sex, only problem being they have to be hypocritical and sneaky about their behavior - instead of being good-humored, honest, and open-hearted about their own testosteronal or pheromonal propensities. Of all the women I've known, perhaps only two or three were virgins before they met me - but I've certainly loved and cherished the others no less, and enjoyed them all the more for their sexual experience and emotional maturity.


I'm convinced that if POLYAMORY was included as another way to explore LOVE and HARMONY, the world would blossom into a spiritually wholesome and truth-valuing place - where deceit, hypocrisy, guilt, and vindictiveness cannot flourish, and destructive jealousy will be seen for what it is: an emotional disease!

As I approach my 60th solar orbit I feel sufficiently seasoned to declare myself a pantheistic pansexual. That's right, folks: everything and everybody is actually quite edible if your perception is pristinely unclouded.

The recent case of the 80-year old who killed his 73-year old wife shows age makes no difference to jealousy, though the details did not suggest a third party. Fatal attraction? The woman at 73 must be really desirable to have caused such possessiveness in the man. May her soul rest in peace.

But in Malaysia, MACC, police, Umno and judiciary are one team – united against law, order, rule and justice - to intimidate the people, to jail the innocent, to oppress the opposition and to defend the criminal.

According to the Malaysian Employers Federation (MEF) quoted in the story, there are 785000 Malaysians who work overseas, and an estimated two out of every three among them are likely to be professionals.

Now we can quantify brain drain.

1000 experienced engineers equates to RM10 billion investment. 2 out of 3 of 785000 professionals working overseas is ~ RM5400 billion.

What was Najib budget for 2010? RM200 billion?

So, it is equal to 25 times of national budget.

The truth is that Umno has ruled supreme for the last 50 years. It always got its way because the dominant ethnic majority of the country always supported its policies.

The state of the nation is corrupt, discriminatory, inefficient, racist, unjust, and backward. If Malaysia stinks then it is because Umno stinks.

If the “morals of the country” stinks, then it is because the morals of Umno politicians stinks.

I won’t even discuss the morality of explosives and murder of foreign nationals as most people seem to be able to tell the difference between right and wrong in this instance.

Instead, I shall talk about Umno corruption and Umno racism as the former will occasion the disastrous downfall of this nation, and the latter will be the downfall of the malays.

Umno teaches that it is just to discriminate against all non-malays and non-Muslims: business, college universities, education opportunities, government contracts, jobs, schools, taxes, and even finding a cemetery to bury the dead.

Umno teaches that it is right to discriminate on the basis of a person culture, language, race or religious belief.

In front of malays, it speaks of the race and religious, cultural and language supremacy, glorification of ethnic and power subjugation, and in front of non-malays, it speaks of the tolerance and unity in diversity.

To the vernacular schools it gives a pittance for support, and to malay language schools, there is no need to be diplomatic and call them “national language” schools, it gives 100% support.

As for English medium schools, the type that made Malaysia education the best in South East Asia, and our school leavers the most sought after anywhere in the civilised world, they were made extinct, courtesy of Umno cultural fantasies and language supremacist.

So we are left with unemployable graduates with deplorable job skills and prospects.

Umno language supremacist policies caused the extinction of the best high quality education that Malaysia and the malays would ever know.

Umno perversion of the very idea of meritocracy in favour of racist discrimination has ensured the lack of meritocractic competition for all Malaysians.

Later or sooner, the malays will realise that denying meritocracy to non-malays guarantees that there can be no meritocracy for malays even within their own community.

Umno policies caused a brain drain to Australia, Canada, New Zealand, UK, and the US.

The fact that there is no entitlement complex nor inferiority complex or notable NEP dependence amongst the non-malays is no accident.

If the non-malays were the dominant ethnic majority, and they had an Umno-like racist party to lead them with promises of ethnic privileges, ethnic supremacy and racial discrimination, then I believe they would have lost their self-belief, self-confidence, and self-respect too.

Farish Noor once said “Umno ternak melayu untuk disembelih”.

I agree, and if the dominant ethnic majority fails to see past Umno false gods of ethnic aggrandizement and seductive promises of ethnic supremacy, then we are all finished.

By the way, your reading of the bible is a little flawed. Remember Isaiah? I wonder what was really going on. In those days, like today, the Kings had their secret service. How did they work? Is it possible that they do what they do today? Lets have a chat when we catch up and I will tell you a story...

The original saying by Alexander Pope was 'The LOVE of is money is
the root of all evil'. Money is in itself neutral.

But I find it amusing that Arabs, who have the same common ancestry as Jews through Abraham (a Jew) as their father, can only find time to see how to exterminate their brothers!

It is also thought that ABRAHAM is derived from BRAHMA and SARA from Saraswati!! See here

hey antares... just wanna say that your comment on the true slave curse was really an eye opener...

It is amusing how the "liberal" mindset contorts and wriggles to approve of free sex.

Let me therefore state the logic very simply:

- contraception is quite unreliable
- sex produces children
- children need protection and nurturing by man and woman
- a tradition of commitment, otherwise know as "marriage", between man and woman is necessary to provide protection.

Running around copulation as proposed in this article is completely selfish and corrupt.

Anonymous - Try thinking out of the box for a moment, will you? You appear to be rigidly fixated on the concept of the NUCLEAR family. Truth is, perhaps 60% or more families today have become MOLECULAR (people marry several times, generating extended families that sometimes live in harmony and sometimes not). There are many molcular families (mine for example) where former spouses remain on friendly terms and become integrated with new branches of the family, though not necessarily on a sexual basis - the stronger bond being total acceptance, love and friendship. In my opinion, this is far healthier and more wholesome than subjecting our children to the trauma of being trapped in a nuclear family where love has died and violence (active or passive) flourishes. That's how acute neurosis - and even psychosis- is spawned!
