Haha! No that's not what I meant. I don't jest. All I'm saying is that people are what they are, no matter what you call them. No need to apply labels as they tend to simplify our observation.

We call Al Qaeda terrorists, but they call themselves freedom fighters. We all still know what they are (hopefully). The label changes nothing to the nature of the thing you are labeling.

Yes, putting a label on something doesn't change it and using a loaded term such as terrorist or freedom fighter over a neutral one such as combatant illustrates the perspective (a loaded term for which is 'bias') of the speaker.

Yeah, I too hope that people at least attempt to know what kind of people Al Qaeda are, and resist sinking to a similar level by in the name of vengeance. Unfortunately that horse has well and truly bolted.

Dude, wasn't Saddam Hussein officially a "president"? Is Ahmadinejad not a "president"?

We call them dictators, they call themselves democratic leaders of their people. Semantics.

You think you know they are terrorists.
But if you look from different perspectives maybe everything changed.

I am not justifying what they are doing, but I am also not justifying what we are doing.

You are right that the label does not change the nature of things, but you gave wrong example.
Maybe you went wrong when you said Al Qaeda are terrorists, you are saying every member of Al Qaeda are terrorist. If you said the guy that blew himself up in a car in name of Al Qaeda then it would have been good.

Lots of black people steal, let's call them all thieves.

Microsoft delivered some bad products, everybody who works there is unskilled.


What I was saying before actually meant that each army thinks they are fighting for the good cause.
And each army will label the enemy as dictators or whatever.

Well not a Nobel prize winner it seems, fill in the blanks.

You can be a super model gangster.
You can be bill gates twin brother and you killed your twin and took his place.
Etc...

Quote :
Lennon letter arrives 34 years on

Posted Tue Aug 17, 2010 10:23am AEST

A little-known folk singer who worried that financial success might ruin his songwriting skills has received a letter of advice from John Lennon 34 years after it was sent.

The late Beatle wrote to Steve Tilston after reading an interview with him in a music magazine in 1971.

In the note, which has been made public for the first time, Lennon said wealth would not change the important things in life.

Signed by Lennon and his wife Yoko Ono, the letter was sent just after The Beatles split in 1970 to the offices of the now-defunct ZigZag magazine.

It wasn't passed on to Tilston, however, until a collector contacted him five years ago.

Addressing the then 21-year-old singer, Lennon wrote: "Being rich doesn't change your experiences in the way you think.

"The only difference, basically, is that you don't have to worry about money, food, roof etc.

"But all other experiences - emotions, relationships - are the same as (anybody's).

"I know, I have been rich and poor and so has Yoko (rich - poor - rich). So, whatya think of that?

"Love John and Yoko."

Lennon also included his home phone number.

Ono says she remembers Lennon writing the letter.

Tilston, who is now 60, has gone on to record more than 20 albums during his career and will mark 40 years in the music business with a concert in Bristol next month.

He says he would have called Lennon if he had received the letter, which is estimated to be worth about 7,000 pounds ($12,200).

"I feel it was a rather brotherly letter really," he said.

"Not antagonistic, just offering words of advice.

"If I had received it all those years ago, my young self would definitely have rung him."

Tilston added he never had to worry about how extreme wealth would affect his creativity.

"Sadly, I was never really able to test this theory out."
