My First Attempt at a Blog

Well, I have not really ever had a blog, but I suppose I will make my first attempt at one here on LQ. I'm not going to do too much writing myself, but rather post a few of my favourite quotes that for one reason or another really mean something to me.

"Voilą! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose vis-ą-vis an introduction, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V."

-- 'V' from the movie: V for Vendetta

I really like this quote. As a Libertarian, it basically defines my beliefs. America, WAKE UP. Don't let progressivism and socialism deteriorate our wonderful country into this dumbed down, secular and politically correct society. We are America, founded on Judeo-Christian principles, liberty and the pursuit of happiness (not the guarantee of it). USA!

"I will not make any deals with you... I will not be pushed, filed, stamped, indexed, briefed, debriefed or numbered. My life is my own."

-- 'Prisoner 6' from the movie: The Prisoner

As a Christian I believe the Devil is always working against me. In the end days, he will use the mark of the beast. This quote means to me: I won't make deals with you, I won't let you control me. I am me, and I believe in Jesus Christ son of God.

"Another one got caught today, it's all over the papers. "Teenager Arrested in Computer Crime Scandal", "Hacker Arrested after Bank Tampering"...

Damn kids. They're all alike.

But did you, in your three-piece psychology and 1950's technobrain, ever take a look behind the eyes of the hacker? Did you ever wonder what made him tick, what forces shaped him, what may have molded him?

I am a hacker, enter my world...

Mine is a world that begins with school... I'm smarter than most of the other kids, this crap they teach us bores me...

Damn underachiever. They're all alike.

I'm in junior high or high school. I've listened to teachers explain for the fifteenth time how to reduce a fraction. I understand it. "No, Ms. Smith, I didn't show my work. I did it in my head..."

Damn kid. Probably copied it. They're all alike.

I made a discovery today. I found a computer. Wait a second, this is cool. It does what I want it to. If it makes a mistake, it's because I screwed it up. Not because it doesn't like me... Or feels threatened by me.. Or thinks I'm a smart ass.. Or doesn't like teaching and shouldn't be here...

Damn kid. All he does is play games. They're all alike.

And then it happened... a door opened to a world... rushing through the phone line like heroin through an addict's veins, an electronic pulse is sent out, a refuge from the day-to-day incompetencies is sought... a board is found. "This is it... this is where I belong..." I know everyone here... even if I've never met them, never talked to them, may never hear from them again... I know you all...

Damn kid. Tying up the phone line again. They're all alike...

You bet your ass we're all alike... we've been spoon-fed baby food at school when we hungered for steak... the bits of meat that you did let slip through were pre-chewed and tasteless. We've been dominated by sadists, or ignored by the apathetic. The few that had something to teach found us willing pupils, but those few are like drops of water in the desert.

This is our world now... the world of the electron and the switch, the beauty of the baud. We make use of a service already existing without paying for what could be dirt-cheap if it wasn't run by profiteering gluttons, and you call us criminals. We explore... and you call us criminals. We seek after knowledge... and you call us criminals. We exist without skin color, without nationality, without religious bias... and you call us criminals. You build atomic bombs, you wage wars, you murder, cheat, and lie to us and try to make us believe it's for our own good, yet we're the criminals.

Yes, I am a criminal. My crime is that of curiosity. My crime is that of judging people by what they say and think, not what they look like. My crime is that of outsmarting you, something that you will never forgive me for.

I am a hacker, and this is my manifesto. You may stop this individual, but you can't stop us all... after all, we're all alike."

-- +++The Mentor+++

I can't explain this one. I feel just like that...

"33 Teach me, O LORD, to follow your decrees;
then I will keep them to the end.

34 Give me understanding, and I will keep your law
and obey it with all my heart.

35 Direct me in the path of your commands,
for there I find delight.

36 Turn my heart toward your statutes
and not toward selfish gain.

37 Turn my eyes away from worthless things;
preserve my life according to your word. [a]

38 Fulfill your promise to your servant,
so that you may be feared.

39 Take away the disgrace I dread,
for your laws are good.

40 How I long for your precepts!
Preserve my life in your righteousness."

-- Psalm 119: 33-40

A realization of natural human immorality and how to avoid it.

"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life."

-- John 3:16

The foundation of truth and my belief.

"1 The LORD is my shepherd, I shall not be in want.

2 He makes me lie down in green pastures,
he leads me beside quiet waters,

3 he restores my soul.
He guides me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.

4 Even though I walk
through the valley of the shadow of death, [a]
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.

5 You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies.
You anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.

6 Surely goodness and love will follow me
all the days of my life,
and I will dwell in the house of the LORD
forever."

-- Psalm 23

Hope & Change: The Effective Way

"It is better to take refuge in the LORD
than to trust in man."

-- Psalm 118:8

A good verse to remember when listening to hopeful politicians.

My favourite songs:

- Run Away by Donnie Bravo

This song means so much to me. That song, I feel, is a representation of who I am, and what I've gone through.

- Boulevard of Broken Dreams by Green Day

I get lonely sometimes.

- Breakfast by Newsboys

Hope


- God is Not a Secret by Newsboys

He is not, and I won't keep it!


- I Won't Back Down by Tom Petty

I'll fight for what I believe in.




No, I am not an Anarchist, I'm a Libertarian. Both Anarchy and Socialism/Communism cannot work because of the uncontrollable variable of human corruption. I'm a Christian, and that is what I believe. I respect your beliefs, please respect mine.

Anyways, I hope this wasn't too boring.
