Do I care what happens after death?  Yes and no

Do I care what happens after death? No.

Would I care under certain conditions?  Yes.

For example, if I had total control over my death, like the timing and how to die, don’t you think that I would certainly care what would be my status after death?

For example, if you feel healthy and very happy, would you take out your life, even if you have total control over your life?  Most probably NO.

If you feel depressed and know the alternatives that after death offer in better opportunities then, wouldn’t you opt for death?

Isn’t the awareness and feeling of lack of valid opportunities that drive us to despair?

What I mean by opportunities includes the knowledge that we will satisfy our hunger for food, joy, and friendship.

If you had total control over your death, and are crippled and feeling totally useless then, would you care to know “what will happens to me after death?”  Yes, you would care very much.

If you know that you have a few alternatives after death: Getting reincarnated as another human being, an animal, a vegetable, or a non-physical entity, would you gamble and risk obtaining an alternative that is against your want?

Wouldn’t you wish to know exactly which gender, race, hemisphere, climatic conditions, political structure, kinds of animals, insects…?

I am asking you, especially people with particular cultures who prefer Hara Kiri (committing suicide) for baffled dignity such as the ancient Japanese tradition, or being a martyr for religious reasons, what pressure these people to take control of their lives?

There are factors of youth and ignorance in the equation.

But what of very educated and experienced people, still healthy and provided for, why would they commit suicide?

I cannot fathom how any healthy and sane individual would commit suicide if he had the liberty of venturing out to other countries, societies, traditions, opportunities…

There is no way to know for sure what there is after death, and whatever is your “belief system” it is certainly very rickety, cloudy, fishy, unsatisfying to an experienced individual to decide upon his  life.

I was not asked my opinion when I was born; I can understand that phase of my life:  I had not much brain to think.

I am not asked my opinion on the timing and wishes of how I should die.

I am furious:  I want fair representation.

And you have a large bunch of nut cases telling me that I should live my life in miseries, suffering, and pains and be thankful for this grace of letting go of my anger and go with the flow.

It is nice to have a positive and cheerful outlook for the after life:  What else can we do?

There is this life to live, enjoy, and be happy:  How could this happens if our outlook is not positive, not vigorous, and not happy?

Truths and facts will not solve how “we feel should be the after life”.

For example of facts, are we a handful of ash, dirt, dust…?  Eaten by worms, ants, crows, fishes, and disgusting crawling little creatures…?

Who can claim that the remains of his ancestors have not been displaced, trampled upon, pissed on…?

The human spirit has proven to go beyond facts and humiliating daily realization of his limitations and dependence on external forces:  the spirit keeps us actives and preserves our high hopes for a better future.

The “after life” must be great if we don’t act stupid; shouldn’t it be?

US youth, your government is totally supporting Qadhafi of Libya who reigned as a dictator for 42 years.  Advanced Egypt could not completely interfere with Satellite signals and scramble social platforms.  How come Qadhafi is successful in blackening out all kinds of intelligence on what’s happening in Libya?  Has Qadhafi bribed the Egyptian army junta with a couple billion dollars to scramble Nile Sat to extending his reign a while longer?

The US and Europe have vested interest in keeping Qadhafi in power:  Whatever they want he delivers; and he could deliver since Libya was his own fiefdom, and nobody was to talk about oil revenue and how it was spent.

The Libyan army, or whatever army still “loyal” to this brutal clown of Qadhafi, has surrounded major cities that have been vacated by the police forces.  Tanks and airforce are pounding the civilian demonstrators in Benghazi, Baeda, Darna, and most cities in the eastern provinces.  No foodstuff are arriving to these cities.

Why the US government and Pentagon are supporting Qadhafi?  Can’t a legitimate democratic constitutional system in Libya sell oil at fair market price?  Aren’t the 5 million Libyans deserving of liberty from tyrants, freedom of expression, fair representation, and equitable distribution of oil revenue?

Yesterday, the son of Moammar Qadhafi, Seif al Islam, delivered a recorded speech.  This duplicate of his clownish father, but with an engineering diploma, babbled for an hour and repeated stupid arguments that are worse than any WikiLeaks facts on how this oligarchic regime thinks of its people.

Seif al Islam said:  “Libya is no Tunisia or Egypt”.  And you listen intently on how Libya is different.  The surprise comes in the form that Libya is an amalgam of tribes and clans.  And you wonder: “If after 42 years of ruling, Libya is still tribal and clannish then, why the Libyan citizens should extend the life of this regime for another half a century?”

Seif al Islam said: “If the Libyans don’t come around and negotiate with him within 24 hours then, Libya will witness a civil war that will kill more than a million of the 5 million “citizens”; and Europe and the US will re-colonize Libya and divide it into three States: The eastern region with Benghazi as Capital, the western region with Tripoli as Capital and the middle region rich in oil.”

Seif al Islam went on: “Libya has two thousand kilometers of coastline and the Libyans will flood Europe with refugees.  The Libyan will be spending $100 for a loaf of bread within a week and all the 200 billion in oil revenues will disappear in thin air because western oil company will stop managing and producing the Libyan oil”.  What?! After 42 years of ruling the Libyans are still unable to control, manage, produce, and export oil without foreign experts?

Seif al Islam was lamenting that all the wonderful projects and programs of building hospitals and schools… will go down the drain.  And you wonder: “What?  After 42 years of ruling Libya, no hospital and schools and… have not been erected?”

Seif al Islam has promised that a new flag, a new national anthem, and a new “modern constitution” will be negotiated; that all these reforms were ready to be implemented many years ago and waiting for proper timing.

Youth of America and Europe, this is not the time to playing dumb and allowing your governments robbing youth around the world of their vital natural rights for opportunities, dignity, freedom of opinions, fair representation, equitable justice system, and a hope in a better future.

Qadhafi has wrapped himself with plenty of mysteries:  They say that he instituted an army of young amazon girls to protect his security; that he isolated himself in the desert designing a car from A to Z; that he built a water canal crossing the desert; that he had atomic plants; that…All kinds of gigantic wasteful spending flowing straight to the sea and nothing to show the Libyan people.

Qadhafi refuses any label: Don’t call him king, sultan, caliph, emir, president, secretary general…He is Mr. X.  You may think whatever you want of him but “please, do not say that I am an asshole”

Youth of America and Europe, march, demonstrate, and express your desires and wishes in support of the valiant peaceful people being murdered in front of your eyes by the hundreds.
