Before I answer Nick Stone's outrageous commentary on the Bin Laden Posts, I thought I would be a little more positive and be specific when speaking of the Genius Visionary of the Bless beauty. In the Kitab-I-Aqdas, The Most Holy of Holies writes what is contrary to my entire cultural and social paradigm and which is absolute in it Truth:
"123 Liberty must, in the end, lead to sedition, whose flames none can quench. Thus warneth you He Who is the Reckoner, the All-Knowing. Know ye that the embodiment of liberty and its symbol is the animal. That which beseemeth man is submission unto such restraints as will protect him from his own ignorance, and guard him against the harm of the mischief-maker. Liberty causeth man to overstep the bounds of propriety, and to infringe on the dignity of his station. It debaseth him to the level of extreme depravity and wickedness."
Now, where shall we look for Lands of Liberties?
Now, where shall we look for lands of Tyrannies?
Now, having discovered all the lands of Liberty and all the Lands of Tyranny ... what lands are left except those which are free of humankind? And I find it, or one of them if there are more than one, and I go there ... then the moment I set foot on its soil, it shall become corrupt, whether I am a tyrant or a man of liberty.
Therefore, I must only serve God, think of God, act for God, and hope that my service, my thoughts and my acts are agreeable in His Eyes. But I doubt that will ever be.
