...The problem with 'canons' is that people want to shoot at other people with them. After awhile doctrine restrains and stifles the growth that first gave the original idea nourishment...
Life is in great need of some comic relief!
... and am happy to be hello and welcoming to my response
Incidentally, I'm not sure why people seem to think anyone's pushing for "organisation" and "rules" and "hierarchy". I'm a staunch opponent of such things and have put a lot of that into my articles.This is merely a discussion on what sort of ways we might take things further on down the road. There's no fixing anything in stone around here, we all move forwards and flow down the stream (hopefully lounging on lilos as we go).I find the assumption that someone (myself in particular) is trying to bring some sort of bureaucracy into this somewhat confusing. I don't know what people are threatened by talking about ourselves and what we do... isn't that what we've always done?I tried not to feel too insulted near the beginning when I was accused of being a "christian" and trying to impose a more "christian" way into Dudeism, and I'm trying not to feel the same for being painted as some would-be fascist Sure, I'm a little verbose in my breakdown of thoughts and points for discussion, but what I was afraid of is saying simply: "Dudeism, discuss:" and getting nothing of any value back. This is a more complicated case that a deluge of movie quotes being thrown back at me Although I hate to agree with those A-holes at BT.... "it's good to keep talking". Sometimes we just need a jumping-off point to get all these thoughts and feelings out. Just, y'know, don't stick my head down the toilet for bringing up what a lot seem to consider valid points. The messenger will not be shot, man
I like the fact that people find it a joke. Doesn't mean that it doesn't have merit.Look at "The Fuck it Way" and their retreat at "the hill that breaths".They make us look like puritans. They have positively embraced the frivolity.
