Raison d’être 3

15.   To create political theory to amuse some and offend others (this again does not mean that these theories are void of insight or sincerity, it's just that we like to be a little less emotional about what we espouse. Emotions are something we dont generally encourage during debate).
16.   To declare that man is unknowingly a self-contradictory being and to celebrate these contradictions.
17.   To celebrate skepticism (including skepticism about skepticism itself) and belief at the same time.
18.   To celebrate aestheticism: art for the sake of art.
19.   To celebrate the uselessness and meaningless of everything, including this statement.

Raison d’être of this blog 2

7.       To shock some, bemuse others, and entertain a few.
8.       To proselytize people into the following belief: “all proselytizing is wrong.”
9.       To celebrate the impossibility of morality, and yet to pass open judgments.
10.   To be openly hypocritical.
11.   To plead a case for house husbands.
12.   To fight against drugs, oppression of women, capitalism, environmental threats, and all the to-be-fought-against things (no, all of us are die-hard meat lovers, but organic only).
13.   To make copyrighted books and lectures available for free (for non-commercial use only).  By email only.
14.   To celebrate pop culture and cultural elitism at the same time.

Raison d’être of this blog

1.       Just like everyone sitting in the cafés-we-frequent can hear us when we talk and laugh, we want the world to witness our electronic shenanigans.  (Of course we know that you are not interested.)
2.       It is a good way for us to ‘preserve’ our rare instances of revelations. 
3.       To procrastinate.
4.       To increase internet traffic so that more people are frustrated with technology and can gradually move towards giving it up (yes, we know it is circular, but it is easier to destroy something from within it, than from the outside—we learnt that from God.)   
5.       To philosophize—on those rare instances that we like to, just for fun. Though, that does not mean it is not serious.
6.       To celebrate* poetry.
*A previous version of this post said share instead of celebrate.
