I'm attempting to organize a contest over at the literature group :iconlove-original-lit:

If any of my watchers, who are not yet members of that group, would be interested in participating, please head on over and take a look at the most recent blog post. I'm currently taking suggestions for themes, amongst other things, and would really appreciate the feedback. (I highly recommend, as an exercise, writing for contests and competitions. It's fun, it's good practice, it gets you thinking, and honing and applying your skills, and, in the case of our group, it's casual. You don't have to be particularly competitive to take part.)
  • Mood: Neutral
  • Listening to: Muse
  • Reading: This journal entry.
  • Watching: Hannibal
  • Playing: With mys... nothing.
  • Eating: nothing
  • Drinking: Vodka.

Thanks, but I prefer to debunk conspiracy theories. I'm not interested in signing up to support them.

Although it may not seem it, I truly appreciate your contributions to my journal. I must force myself to emotionally be far removed, if I am to respond with any cognitive ability. lol

Ha. Not to worry. I very much enjoy debates and arguments, and tend to seek and pursue them whether my interlocutor likes it or not.

I was going to quote the relevant section only, but as I like it in it's entirety, here is my guiding light (from Hitchens' Letters to a Young Contrarian, which is well worth a read):


“Beware the irrational, however seductive. Shun the 'transcendent' and all who invite you to subordinate or annihilate yourself. Distrust compassion; prefer dignity for yourself and others. Don't be afraid to be thought arrogant or selfish. Picture all experts as if they were mammals. Never be a spectator of unfairness or stupidity. Seek out argument and disputation for their own sake; the grave will supply plenty of time for silence. Suspect your own motives, and all excuses. Do not live for others any more than you would expect others to live for you."

I appreciate you taking the time to respond. I've just spotted your reply, but unfortunately I won't be able to read it thoroughly until tomorrow.

Rest assured, I'm not shying away from the challenge. ;-)
