Those who protect and those who will exploit grief in both God and Man.

Rabindra (Tagore) dance by Sulagna Ray. Jhoro Jhoro Borishae Bari Dhara, the rains have swept away the boundary between life and death. In Memoriam to grandmother’s passing at the age of 101.

May God bless her and keep her in His hands always.  Celebrating  Kamala Bhattacharya Debi beloved grandmother my mother’s side. Jhoro jhoro borishae bari dhara hai potho bashi, hai gothi hinu, The rainfall will only last until it reaches the shores. Hai gothi hinu hai griho hara. What are those who depend on the starry heaven to guide their journey to do? Phirae bayu, they cry, swiftly return black clouds that carry rain. Shorae phirae bayu, let thunder, lightning and rain sing with one voice again. Dakea karae, who are they calling for in unison? Jononino ashimo pranthorae, they plead for those whose shores are at the end of the world. Rojoni adhara and lightning lost, hai potho bashi hai gothi hinu hai griho hara adhira jomuna thorongo akula bokularae, the restless river Jamuna’s strong waters, thimiro dhokula shogonaei rae dhokularae, Unfortunately, only the timid, afraid to be forgotten, nibiro nirodho gogonae, look up at the empty skies, goro goro goro gorojae, to hear the thunder that carry no  rainfall. Choncholo chapula chamokae, the restless lightning nahi shoshi thara, do not have an answer, having lost their way, what are they who carry misfortune to do now? Hai griho hara, the ones for whom the starry heaven carries only empty clouds.

 

 

Gun laws and the case for direct democracy. In Memoriam to the lives of children sacrificed at the altar of pigs. 2018, 2017, 2016……..

 

Obedient Value is also to be understood as our Law of Value. The Rabbinate, Yerushalayim, Israel.   Direct democracy also called pure democracy, forms of direct participation of citizens in democratic decision making, in contrast to indirect or representative democracy, based on  the sovereignty of the people. This can happen in the form of an assembly democracy or by initiative and referendum with ballot voting, with direct voting on issues instead of for candidates or parties. Sometimes the term is also used for electing representatives in a direct vote as opposed to indirect elections (by voting for an electing body, electoral college, etc.) as well as for recalling elected officeholders. Direct democracy may be understood as a full-scale system of political institutions, but in modern times, it means most often specific decision-making institutions in the broader system  environment of representative democracy. Decision-making theories range from objective rational decision making, which assumes that individuals will make the same decisions given the same information and preferences, to the more subjective logic of appropriateness, which assumes that specific institutional and organizational contexts matter in the decisions that individuals make.

Mill writes, “In many cases, an individual, in pursuing a legitimate object, necessarily and therefore legitimately causes pain or loss to others, or intercepts a good which they had a reasonable hope of obtaining (1009).” Who is he to say that while pursuing an object pain or loss is necessary at all? The definition of necessary, according to Webster’s Dictionary, is absolutely essential or needed to achieve a certain result or affect. I do not think that in any way it would be necessary to cause harm while trying to achieve a goal. There are so many ways to go about to achieve a goal without causing harm to someone. However, if for example, you and a coworker are in position for a promotion, you are both fighting against each other for the position, you receive the promotion and unintentionally hurt the other worker, and this harm caused does not put you at fault. If you did something evil or something that would purposely cause the individual to not get the promotion this is intentional and you should be placed at fault. In summary Mill believes that consequential harm will not apply to the harm principle; however I believe that the circumstances of the situation are very important in be able to consider whether or…”
