The Conservation of Evil

"Islamophobia is being ratcheted up, with Muslims viewed as outcasts and pressure put at every opportunity on the Islamic world both generally and at a local level.  "Everything is their fault," because the more we give them a hard time, the more they will return the favor.  This is the long familiar Law of the Conservation of Evil."

- Anna Politkovskaya from article: "The Madness of Tribalism, Or the Law of the Conservation of Evil"  March 18, 2004

Politkovskaya is a true hero, who lost her life in intrepidly uncovering the truth, knowing full well the danger and likely outcome of doing so.  Her term "The Conservation of Evil" is one of the finest I've heard to define the modern Orwellian world-wide situation, where politicians around the world use fear and terror to consolidate their own positions of power by having the populace rally around them using the tribal mentality where in return the populace are offered a false protection racket which only endangers them and costs the lives of thousands.

It wasn't long after 9/11, September 11, 2001, that I began this website. I felt compelled to connect with other people around the globe. I had recently heard about "weblogs" or "blogs" and I dove right into I searched for others to connect with online and I found Ageless. It led to meeting many great friends to discuss events of the day. From then on it snowballed. Most importantly we offered one another support and friendship across the globe; finding that we were just a few keystrokes away.
