Presumed guilty until proved innocent?

As Sri Lankans, our society has the attitude that someone charged with a penal offence is presumed guilty until proven innocent. That is the mindset of Sri Lankans as a whole. In this frame, it is plainly offensive when an international organization initialize an investigation to find out weather or not there has been violation of international rules and regulations. But, in all the developed nations (except some countries like China) almost everyone has the attitude that “someone charged with a penal offence is presumed innocent until proven guilty.”

It is true that Sri Lanka is a sovereign nation and only the government has executive powers over its decisions and actions. And it is also true that Sri Lanka has agreed to certain agreements with international organizations that as a nation we have to keep our word to them. That is the nature of agreements. If a certain party comes to an agreement with another party or another organization it is usually in return of some kind of a benefit.

Anything good comes with terms of use. For an example, a marriage puts limitations on how one should behave afterwards. If either party would no longer wants to abide by the terms, either they have to rectify the actions or end the agreement. It is a package deal!

As a nation we don’t have the attitude to view the government and the individuals running the government exclusively. That is a big weakness we have and a reason behind lots of unnecessary conflicts. Living in a certain jurisdiction, we have to abide by the rules and regulations; or leave that country and find a jurisdiction where there are rules and regulations we could abide to. The trick is that, those who make the rules and those who execute the rules should also abide by those rules and regulations.

Let’s take an example of a policeman: If a policeman arrests a criminal suspect, the policeman is executing the law, and the orders he is given. It is not the policeman’s free will he is executing and he should not put any personal feeling or emotions on the process of executing his orders. Also the policeman is an individual doing his duty, and the human-being executing the role of the policeman is exclusive from the authority he holds behalf of the police department. When that policeman is off his duty, he is under the same jurisdiction he has been executing towards everyone else. And there is no point in protesting against the policemen yelling “I’m innocent”, where he too has no option other than executing his orders in the process of justice.

If a complain has been made to an authority about a violation of a law that is under the jurisdiction of that authority, it is necessary to hold a “fair trial” and bring justice, or else it becomes intellectual sloth. If such a complain is made, there has to be a fair process of justice. Someone who has not violated a law should have nothing to be afraid of a fair trial. If a suspect shows any resistance towards a process of fair trial, that is a very bad characteristic they are exhibiting. Someone who is not familiar with the typical Sri Lankan mindset of “presumed guilty until proven innocent” would come to an early conclusion that there should have been some violation of laws.

An old story – for those who can reason.

Once upon a time, there was an old man, and he had a son and a daughter. One day, this man brought a poisonous fruit for a good reason,

and told his son and daughter to not to even touch it. But they tasted it and both of them died. So the old man was very sad about this, so he

blamed the person who sold that fruit.

Later on, this old man had another son. Before his son was a grown up man, this old man sent out his son for a difficult task, alone, far and

away. When the son returned after more than a month, he has learnt so many things. So he shared his knowledge with the neighbors. The son

has also learnt about that person who has sold the poisonous fruit to his father.

Some neighbors believed him and some neighbors doubted what he said about the fruit vendor and the good things of far far away. So and

so, some one among the neighbors have told to this father some bad stuff his son have done, but the father knew the truth that his son

wouldn’t have done such things. But he was still grieving about his first son who died after eating the poisonous fruit.

One day, this father killed his son for the fault that his first son ate that poisonous fruit. Those neighbors who believed on what his son, and

their decedents and many other people who happened to met with them, still believes that, what his father has done is the most sensible and

right thing to do. What do you think..?

The word Witch does not necessorily mean woman. The word can be also used to call a male Witchcraft practitioner.
Blessed Be!

This is what i mean!Acts 2

Sin… I believe sin as doing harm to others. We do no harm. If it harms none, we do what we wish. How can loving thenature and receiving the Godesses gifts be wrong.


http://www.youtube.com/user/TheGodshandkiller


Your belief for what is sin is wrong. Your worship what is contrary to God. We are all sinnners. Some though are justforgiven. You worship the created and i worship the creator!

I respect your religious faith. Just thought to say few words about your attitude. I also respect your right to saywhatever you wish till it harms none. I just expect the tolerance.
As Christians you people are used to think that you have the one true religion and murdered many people, just for notagreeing with your views. In that way I feel safe over the Internet.
We Witchcraft practitioners do not worship a devil, do not eat babies and do not fly broomsticks. In other words we do notdo anything to harm anyone, that’s in our wiccan rede (like your Commandments). Most of all we do not go around throwing

our religious believes on other people like you people does.
I (we) do not expect any respect as other religions asks for, nothing special, but the tolerance. Just to be considered as

another religion. We don’t want to be saved by you. We don’t like to be discriminated.
By the way, your home pages text opacity is little too low. It is little hard to read.
Blessed Be!


http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=TheGodshandkiller


My attitude? your playing with demons if you didnt already know. there are no spirits of nature or spirits of whatever!
There is only the spirit of God and fallen angels.Men may have murdered claiming it was God’s will but it not scriptural. So claiming christian guilt is pointless. Yourpractices on the other hand, your “religion” is an abomination unto God.You dont worship a devil, you worship the devil.
And even if you worship nature or what ever your still worshipping the created and not the creator.My God is more awesome and more powerful then any spirit or force you believe.

Your playing with fire little girl, and your gonna get burned.


http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=vishva8kumara


Oops! That hurts a little. :)I personnaly do not worship on anything. For me, it is admiration. Saying it loud is not my way.I’m basically a Buddhist. I don’t take Wiccanism as a Religion. I only take their practices to improve in my life.Wiccans don’t believe that there is a devil, how can we worship something we don’t believe to exist.

By the way I’m not little and I’m not a girl.
I’m 22 and I’m a boy; an undergraduate.

My creators are my parents.

I’m not goint to get burnt untill your people find me.


http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=TheGodshandkiller


 LOL! nice play no words..funny.The problem is you dont know what you take part in. Wiccanism buddhism paganism. Your dealing with a false philosophy anda doctrine of demons.Answer this please how does wiccanism improve your life?


http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=vishva8kumara


I’m telling just because you ask.
I have learnt to connect with nature more closely and discover my inner powers and energies. Through meditation I couldrevive my thinking ability and mind potential (free thinking). A new path has opened before me. Afterall I have found ahappier path and I was facinated by their liturature.
It is our own inner powers and forces of nature we use to improve our day to day life. But we do not expect to defeat theother people. Anyway the nature’s law is the survival of the fittest.


http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=TheGodshandkiller


Since you fail to follow the true path, you fail to connect with the infinite God who had no begining and who created allmatter and designed the universe. The spirit of God is the only path to true wisdom and enlightenment.Your “inner powers and energies” are actually what the bible says is body soul and spirit. The body consistingof all flesh which is measurable but connected to the soul and spirit which gives you thought and life.

These eastern philosophys only mimic then twist what the scriptures of the prophets teach.

You may think you’ve achieved enlightenment but come war and conflict, peace and love you come up short.

God is a loving God but he is also perfect/holy/without blemish and sin/imperfection cannot exist in his presence.

You have sinned.


http://www.youtube.com/profile?user=vishva8kumara


Eastern Philosophies are much ancient than your scriptures. When you say “eastern philosophys only mimic then twist thescriptures” it is just a joke! We had the knowledge for tens of thousands of years, and your prophet just took it to thewesterns.
Excuse me, Am I the one who speak hate words and accusations. Just go back and see if you had love and peace.

Great mistakes of Great kingdoms

        As the geographical dimensions of a kingdom under one management are increased, the ability of that kingdom to concentrate power also increased approximately exponentially. But when the power is increased towards the center of kingdom, social contrast is also increased radially out from center towards the bottom of society.

        For this rule, there I declare a model of society in a kingdom, that it consists of radial layers one over the other where the top layers are nourished by the bottom layers radially. Sometimes the management attempts to concentrate power towards center for its long-term political strategies, like a war of defense or a war of conquer, may be a defense plan. Think the layers of society are floated in a liquid (outer entities the kingdom) when the center is heightened relative to the bottom layers the bottom layers has to descend more deep in the liquid.

        The society is not a continuous entity; it is discontinuous. Each individual has a potential to jump to the top layer if sufficient motivation is given. Therefore in such a case potent elements of society rises to challenge the system against the management. Such a phenomena is commonly called a rebel. Many of those could be found in the world history. The management of those kingdoms in such periods are remarkable throughout those legends, Hitler, Mao, Chin teoe Ist &c, &c. when such a situation is arisen there also has to be a leadership and a set of radial layers around that. Therefore the emperor has two options to choose. Either he has to gather them around his self or to exterminate them.

        Hitler is an example who has chosen the first method. He has even made use of the technology of his rival Jews as well. He let it drain their potential to raise the top of his realm without drowning his lower layers. As a result the lower layers of hiss rival has gone more deep down. Like a leach suck blood from its host Hitler raised his realm against my theory above mentioned. But finally the uproar of lower layers was liberated from being pressed under. That was the model of western emperors.

        Most of the eastern emperors have chosen the other option in the case of a rebel. They used to exterminate the potent quantities risen from lower levels without giving them a chance. They might think that it would be easier to control their realm when none out there can go over his tactics. Therefore they found another dimension to count on layer model of society. First they determined their level and cut off the top layers of intellectuals while sucking their blood.

        Anyone can see a sharp difference between the east and the west in nowadays. The most probable reason is that the west’s determined a higher level of intellectuals to cut off. Even they would be more useful, they were small in numbers. In the other hand the existence of such intellectual personalities would thought to be a threat to the empire.
One has said that ‘every leadership has bad qualities, and it is wiser to chose the leadership with minimum bad qualities’.

        Communism is a model of politics where the management sucks the blood of potent individuals with great motivation, and nourishes the majority of scarecrows. This is also against the theory ‘Survival of the fittest’ by Charles Darwin. According to that theory the entities those are not suitable to compete has to give up. One can say that the above-mentioned individuals of emperors are survivals who had great potentials. I’m telling him that alone they are not strong to compete. They came to that position by the help of a radial array of layers around them. Such emperors are the real mean red foxes been in world society.

        Sir Arthur C Clark has once put forward a political idea in his ‘Songs of Far away Earth’ to chose a leadership by the means of a raffle instead of polling among people. As a whole this would seem a freak idea. But you must read the next few sentences of that article where he declares that ‘it is the worst quality a leader could have is the greed to be the leader.’ Sir Arthur C Clark
