M.Ali says: March 1, 2011 at 12:38 pmI am not concerned about nnekdaess
since I believe and observe that Custom is a deterrent to that behavior.
Really, animals are naked and you are suggesting that someone might want to
walk around naked; like an animal. Someone, likewise, might want to
defecate, like an animal, in public. It is not useful for Law to deal with
such things.Now, if you are suggesting that there are very many in Iran
that desire to walk naked and it is only the existence of Moral Police that
is preventing them from doing so, then I suggest that the Iranian society
is suffering from a very deep pyscho-pathology in which so many wish to act
like animals.More seriously, there are natural rights that inhere in the
individual as bestowed on him by the Creator. The majority has no right,
as a collective, to take away those rights. The central authority here is
the Revelation and not the activities of the collective nor Laws of Nature
(which in turn are dependent on a priori metaphysical assumptions about the
nature of cosmos).It is the Revelation and the deductions and
amplifications of its content through human Reason that serves to be the
basis of the Law.

19. Dust of Snow

Coming to grips with mortality (the shock of the snow, the crow, and the
hemlock tree) allows one to appreciate life more. Frost was not just
writing about his own experience, but the human experience.

dust of snow

I think Frost was thinking about the dynamism between the natural world of
life/death, yin/yang, luck, chance/ determinism and the fallout from that.
(simply put, s**t happens!) CROW ON SNOW
HIs observation of life/death interaction, its randomness: SHOOK DOWN on
Left him with a new sense of possiblities; a new perspective.
How would you feel if you observed a crow on a branch, stepping around,
letting snow fall from its perch, landing on you? Maybe the snow fell on
your upturned face and you had to laugh!
