Celebrating personal discordia and spiritual anarchy.

"Anarchy is not intended to be sustainable. It is not a system of government, a codified list of rules and beliefs, or a mind set geared toward cultural constructivism. It is a spark, a flash, a small flame that ignites a paradigm-obliterating explosion. It is destructive by nature. It lies dormant and, like diesel fuel, can only be ignited by tremendous pressure. It deconstructs. It strips flesh from bone and grinds bone to dust. It is doomed to consumption in the conflagration instigated by its own primal spark. It is a catalyst. It is tinder. It is powder and fuse."

Conservative Moderation

As a fellow prick kicker, I have my beef with Mormon conceptual moderation and balance. How can you be balanced and moderate and practice any form of abstinence??? Isn’t that imbalanced and biased by very nature? Doesn’t “moderation in all things” presuppose a measured, controlled “indulgence in all things”? Otherwise, wouldn’t it say “moderation in all things within certain prescribed parameters that don’t include all things”…?
