A Wife

Fear now and learn to have courage...

I've been a husband for 20 years and finally my two daughters asked me this question: Who is a wife?

A wife gives birth. She takes care of the children. She makes sure the kids eat properly and are kept clean. She washes the children's clothes and keeps them mended. She arranges for their schooling, makes sure they have their adequate social life with their peers, takes them to the park, etc. She takes care of the children when they are sick. She is always around when the children need special care. On top of that, a wife teaches the children about values of what is right and what is wrong.

Probably a wife goes to work too and yet have to take care of the husband's physical needs. She keeps the house clean. She keeps the husband's clothes clean, iron, mended, replaced when need to be, and sees to it that the husband's personal things are kept in their proper place so that he can find what he needs the minute he needs it. She cooks the meal. She plans the menus. She does grocery shopping, prepares the meals, serves them pleasantly and then do the cleaning up. She takes care of the husband's when he is sick and sympathize his pain. In fact, she looses her own sleep just to make sure he sleeps soundly when he is sick. She goes along when the family take the family vacation so that someone will continue to care the husband and the children especially when he needs a rest and changes of scene.

When her husband goes to work, a wife prays for his safety. She prays for his good fortune be it from the sky, the sea, the ground or even from inner earth. Yet she seeks his forgiveness.

A working wife is rather more difficult as she never bother the husband with rambling complaints. She worries about being late from work. She listens to him when he feels the need to explain something difficult. A more intelligent wife (like their mother ... hehehehe) have to lower down her level of intelligence so that the husband's ego won't get hurt (errr .........). She asks permission nearly about everything. On top of that, a wife always know the time he needs to be left alone.

A wife defends her husband with her own life especially against her nasty relatives. She is not only obedient to her husband but also to her in-laws and her husband's relatives. She learns quickly everything about her husband's side - faith, principles, custom, language, their likes, their dislikes, their businesses, their problems etc.

A wife takes care the details of the husband's social life. When his friends come over, she keeps the house clean and tidy beforehand. She prepares special meal, serves it to him and his friends and never interrupt when he talks about things that interest him and his friends. She makes sure the children never bother him and his friends so that the guests feel comfortable. She makes sure they have their ashtrays. She serves them coffee at time they prefer it. On top of that, a wife knows that he needs a night out by himself.

A wife always smile. She is romantic. She prepares herself well in bed. She is sensitive to his sexual needs. She makes love passionately and eagerly when he feels like it. She never demand sexual attention when he is not in a mood for it. She remains sexually faithful to him so he doesn't have to live his life with jealousies. In fact, what worries a wife most as a wife is the possibility of not satisfying him in bed.

Later I heard them say ... Oh my God!
A good comment by nour

A wife would be "someone who is not perfect makes flaws once in a while and will do anything for her family, massive strength behind all those softness and patience". :)

Absolutism In Individualism

Reality does exist and is absolute providing man dictates between true and false with rationality. Surviving the reality, man must think and act on his thinking. The thoughts then determine the character, values, emotions, and actions. Act upon the choices made, man proposes his own destiny (though God may dispose).

A human society provides values namely knowledge and trade. The values provide choices. Choices demand absolutism in man as every man is an end in himself. Other men are not his nor he is theirs. Individualism then is not opposed to man living in society. Individualism is opposed to man living in society as a slave.

Rationality requires freedom of action. Freedom of actions are the rights. The rights support life. Life provides plenty - Liberty, Property, Happiness etc. The right to live then is an absolutism in individualism. As individualism is part of a social context, rights then are moral principles. Rights are not infringed upon. A man is in his right should he is robbed and the robber is morally wrong.

A man's right can be violated at the highest degree via political order. Politics can initiate force onto men. A man's right is violated at the highest degree once his mind is stopped from thinking. Once a man is forced from thinking, he himself is useless for his means to survive is taken.

A man is in his right should he be forced from thinking and the force initiated to violate his right is morally wrong. A force initiated onto men creates another right - the right to self-defense. To use force in retaliation in self-defense against those who initiate it is not a moral option, but a moral requirement. Thus the moral principle of self-defense is never be used to initiate force but only for retaliation of self-defense. The rights of men then have the right to be protected.

In order to protect rights, a government requires three things: An army -- to protect against foreign invaders, A police force -- to protect against domestic criminals, and A court system -- to settle honest disputes that arise, enforce contracts, and to punish criminals, according to objectively predefined laws.

To ensure that no despot whether that despot be a single dictator, a political pressure-group, or a befuddled "democratic" majority of the moment may usurp the powers of government, and turn its machinery upon any of its citizens, each and every aspect of government action is codified, and carried out, according to objectively defined laws. The rule of law has only one proper purpose: To protect the rights of the smallest minority that has ever existed: The Individual.

Through the protection on the smallest minority, the individual, a society may flourish.

A society may flourish where individuals are moralists and being important: A producer, An inventor, A thinker etc even A farmer as long as individuals do contribute and give values - Knowledge and Trades. A society may flourish where the evil is not rewarded, but punished, and the good is admired, and praised. A society where virtue is not a weakness, but a strength. A society may flourish where a life of imaginable riches and wealth, is a possibility -- for everyone who is willing to think. A society may flourish where education is not a state-induced brainwashing, but truly becomes a "mind-expanding" experience. A society may flourish where the cost of living decreases, as incomes continually rise.

Reality does exist and is absolute providing man dictates between true and false with rationality.

The Telemarketer

This entry is offensive so any names involved are changed.

Strange things do happen when my secretary is on leave.

Me: Hello
Gidi: Hello, this is Gidi...

Me: Is this Gidi?
Gidi: Yes, this is Gidi...

Me: This is Gidi?
Gidi: YES! This is Gidi, may I speak to Mr. Azer please?

Me: May I know who is calling please?
Gidi: This is Gidi.

Me: OK, hold on.

At this point I put the phone down for 5 minutes thinking that this person would have hung up the phone. Surprisingly, when I picked up the receiver, she was still waiting.

Me: Hello?
Gidi: Is this Mr. Azer?

Me: May I know who is calling please?
Gidi: Yes, this is Gidi...

Me: Is this Gidi?
Gidi: Yes this is Gidi...

Me: This is Gidi?
Gidi: Yes, is this Mr. Azer?

Me: The phone company?
Gidi: Yes sir.

Me: I thought you said this was Gidi.
Gidi: Yes sir, we are a phone company.

Me: Oh, I already have a phone.
Gidi: We aren't selling phones Mr. Azer.

Me: Well whatever it is, I'm really not interested but thanks for calling.

When you are not interested in something, I don't think you can express yourself any simpler than by saying "I'm really not interested", but this lady was persistent.

Gidi: Mr. Azer, we would like to offer you 10 sen a minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.

Now, I am sure she meant she was offering a "rate" of 10 sen a minute but she at no time used the word rate. I then hit the calculator for some calculations.

Me: Now, that's 10 sen a minute 24 hours a day?
Gidi: (getting a little excited at this point by my interest) Yes sir that's right! 24 hours a day!

Me: 7 days a week?
Gidi: That's right.

Me: 365 days a year?
Gidi: Yes sir.

Me: I am definitely interested in that! Wow!!! That's amazing!
Gidi: We think so!

Me: That's quite a sum of money!
Gidi: Yes sir, it's amazing how it adds up.

Me: OK, so will you send me cheques weekly, monthly or just one big one at the end of the year for the full RM52,560, and if you send an annual cheque, can I get a cash advance?
Gidi: Excuse me?

Me: You know, the 10 sen a minute.
Gidi: What are you talking about?

Me: You said you'd give me 10 sen a minute, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. That comes to RM144 per day, RM1,008 per week and RM52,560 per year. I'm just interested in knowing how you will be making payment.
Gidi: Oh no sir I didn't mean we'd be paying you. You pay us 10 sen a minute.

Me: I pay you? Didn't you say you'd give me 10 sen a minute. Are you sure this is Gidi?
Gidi: Well, yes this is Gidi sir but......

Me: But how do you figure that by saying that you'll give me 10 sen a minute that I'll give you 10 sen a minute? Is this some kind of telemarketing scheme? I've read about things like this in the newspapersand not to mention some blogs too.
Gidi: No sir we are offering 10 sen a minute for.....

Me: Can I speak to a supervisor please.
Gidi: Sir I don't think that is necessary.

Me: Sure! You say that now! What happens later?
Gidi: What?

Me: I insist on speaking to a supervisor!
Gidi: Yes, Mr. Azer. Please hold.

So now Gidi has me on hold. After a few minutes ...

Supervisor: Mr. Azer?
Me: Yes?

Supervisor: I understand you are not quite understanding our 10 sen a minute program.
Me: No, actually I was just waiting for someone to get back to me so that I could sign up for the plan.

Supervisor: OK, no problem, I'll transfer you back to the person who was helping you.
Me: Thank you.

I was on hold once again. I needed to end this conversation.

Gidi: Hello Mr. Azer, I understand that you are interested in signing up for our plan?
Me: You see, my colleague has resigned due to serious illness and I have to rent the apartmentdowntown. The problem is, my kids and my wife are not with me as they hate transferring schools. Now that my weeknights are getting lonely, is there any probability that you would drop by and keep me warm sometimes?

Gidi: *click* tuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuttttttttttt

Usury Part 2 of 2

This entry is brought to you by Azer Global Peace Individualism. Why bother to criminalize the physical war while the real war is here … own backyards!


Say the whole economy is worth RM 100.00. The economy borrowed RM 100.00 with interest charge at 5% per annum for 5 years payments:

Year 1: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 5.
Year 2: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 5.
Year 3: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 5.
Year 4: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 5.
Year 5: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 5.

Total payment = RM 100.00 + RM 25 = RM 125.00

Question is, how can an economy pay the extra RM 25.00 while the
economy itself worth only RM 100.00???!!!

Part 2 - The Extra RM 25

Question: How can an economy pay RM 125 with the extra RM 25 while the economy itself only worth RM 100?
Answer: It simply can't. An economy worth RM 100 can't pay the extra RM 25.

Question: What can an economy do in order to pay the extra RM 25?
Answer: It has to create a Bubble Economy.

Question: What is a Bubble Economy?
Answer: It's a multiplication of the economy itself.

Question: Again, what is a bubble economy?

An economy borrow RM 100 and in 5 years have to come up with an extra RM 25.
The economy then give loans to its sub-economies with interest charge of 6% per annum.

The payments:

Year 1: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 6.
Year 2: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 6.
Year 3: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 6.
Year 4: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 6.
Year 5: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 6.

The economy then acquire the extra RM 25 to pay the interest imposed for the loan. The economy then have another extra of RM 5.

The problem is getting worse though.

Question: The economy received an extra RM 5 so how can the problem be getting worse?
Answer: The economy is worth RM 100 and made a loan of RM 100 and total interest charged is RM 25. As the economy practices usury on its loan, it charges another RM 5. The total interest charge is RM 30.

The problem is getting even worse as the sub-economies too provide loans to the market. The sub-economies provide loan of RM 100 with interest charge of 7% per annum as the sub-economies too practice usury.

The payments:

Year 1: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 7.
Year 2: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 7.
Year 3: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 7.
Year 4: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 7.
Year 5: Pay loan RM 20.00 + interest RM 7.

The sub-economies then acquire the extra RM 30 to pay the interest imposed for the loan. The sub-economies then have another extra of RM 5.

Total interest charge on the economy is RM 25. Total interest charge on the sub-economies is RM 30. Total interest charge on the market is RM 35.

Total interest charge on the economy as a whole is then RM 35.

Question: How can an economy worth RM 100 pay the extra RM 35?
Answer: It simply can't. An economy worth RM 100 can't pay the extra RM 35.

Question: What can an economy do to pay the extra RM 35?
Answer: There are plenty alternatives:

1. Creates another bubble economy through other kind of loans - credit cards, personal loans, house loans, student loans etc.
2. Increase the consumer prices.
3. More tax.
4. Find another resources.
5. Invade another country.
6. Make people work harder.
7. Migration.
8. More foreign investments.
9. People can start selling asses or promote prostitutions or other immorality as Human Resources can be plenty too.
10. Be Mr. 'Yes' to the creditors.
11. More destruction on the environment to give way for 'economic development'.
12. The establishment of equity, bonds and other markets.
13. Promote people spending.
14. Produce weapons then create propaganda that create war that demand for weapons which is another source of economy.
15. Promote tourism.
16. Others.


1. Usury creates a collateral system where an economy worth RM 100 is eligible for a loan of
RM 1000 which makes things worse.
2. Usury promotes nepotism and cronism.
3. Usury creates the financial cost. Without usury, there can never be the financial cost.

There is no justice in usury. People are being oppressed. In general, corporations bear 45% of their operating cost through financial cost. Ever wonder why some items do keep on increasing in prices? It makes rich people richer and poor people poorer. It creates bubble economy which lead to an illusion standard of living. Usury is a form of colonization by the financiers towards other nations.

With this, Azer Global Peace Individualism criminalizes Usury.

O Nobly Born

I dedicate this entry to my nephew who started working as a software engineer and to the newbies of the ITC industry whoever you are and where ever you are.

O the Nobly Born, do know that the Way to Algorithm and System Programming is long, and winding, and Fraught with Hardship. Thou must Attune thyself with the Operating System then dive into the Kernel Shell, attaining the arcane Knowledge and Communication of the Network. Yea, and such an all-consuming Time and Energy Sink is this as to greatly Imperil (if one thou hast). But persevere, o young earthlings; rewards beyond the Dreams of Lusers await thee!

Thou shall Walk in a Pride of a Camel. The Virtue of Determination is the Path to be Wiser.

O the Nobly Born, know that Being Oneself by your own thinking styles are but the outermost Portal of the True Enlightenment. Worthy are they (and praise to the Name of Linus Torvold, who dared to be different and set free the Open Source), but being unique and dare to be different are only the Beginning of the Road. Swim and keep on swimming freely into the oceans and Speak with the Mantra of C-Language and thou shall find there is no wall too high nor there is no shield too strong then all ports are reachable. If thou desirest with True Desire to tread the Path of Development Wisdom, first learn the elementary, then, absorb the mantic professionalism.

Thou shall Swim in a Pride of a Dolphin. The Virtue of Curiosity is the Path to be Knowledgeable.

O the Nobly Born, indeed thou hast touched upon an Ineffable Truth about being unique --- that thou canst not Plumb its Mysteries by mere Study but must become One with it through Practice. The true Way to the Knowledge of the Industry is not the timid and footling way of the Student, but the Divine Foolery of the Developer. Strive against Mighty Problems, have joy in thy Striving, and let the Crashes fall where they may. Do your art, programming and calculate again; grow, by trial and by error. Give thy best and gain in Repute thereby. Also, O the Nobly Born, be thou grave and courteous in thy speech; be helpful to those less than thee, quick to succour and slow to flame.

Thou shall Work in a Pride of an Ant. The Virtue of Application is the Path to be Comprehensible.

By degrees imperceptible to thyself shalt thou gain Power and Wisdom, Striving and Doing all the while. Gradually shall thy Puissance unfold and deepen. Never forget the Elementary through the Wise of a Pencil and the Power of a Paper. View O the Nobly Born for the overall system into sub-systems then establish a strong foundation of the Database, the Logicbase, the Functionbase, and the Linkbase. Understand the Flow, thou shall avoid the Overflow.

Thou shall Fly in a Pride of an Eagle. The Virtue of Observation is the Path to be Logical.

O the Nobly Born, if thou dost all these things, thy Algorithmhood and Hackerhood shall surely come upon thee; but not of a sudden, and not until after thy arrogant Mind hath more than half Forgotten that such was its Aim. For know this --- you may not by thyself in Pride claim the Mantle of the Industry; that way lies only Bogosity without End. Rather must you Become, and Become, and Become, until you respect thy Power, and other System Developers hail thee as a Brother or Sister in Wisdom, and you wake up and realize that the Mantle hath lain unknown upon thy Shoulders since you knew not when.

Thou shall Grow in a Pride of a Child. The Virtue of Respect is the Path to have Wisdom.

Behold The Information Technology and Communication Warriors!

Azer Loves Mantessa

Distant Early Warning: Please do not absorb whatever these two idiots are arguing.

Azer: To love someone is a selfish act.
Mantessa: I don't think so. To love someone is selfless.

Azer: There is no self-sacrifice in love. It has always been self-interest.
Mantessa: It is self-sacrifice. In love, people do spend the time, effort and money on behalf of someone they love.

Azer: Exactly! Those are not sacrifices, but actions taken because his or her happiness is crucially important to your own.
Mantessa: No, what I mean is people do sacrifice their own happiness so that the ones they love remain happy.

Azer: To make other people happy is love? To sacrifice your own happiness is love? Then what is the value of love?
Mantessa: You do not value love. Love is too valuable. There is no measurement on love.

Azer: There is. You can quantify love. You can measure it. Look at why do marriages ended - "I get no more pleasure from you", "There is no benefit in our relationship" or "You give me no satisfaction in sex, emotion or even intellectual needs". All these are kind of measurement.
Mantessa: That is because people take love as self-interest requirement. They don't really sacrifice for love. Some people do defend the ones they love with their own life and that's certainly is not self-interest. It is sacrifice.

Azer: When you fall in love, isn't it the moment where you feel you can't live without her? Isn't it the moment she makes you happy? Isn't it the moment you can't think of anything else but her? Isn't it about you? Isn't it about your own self?
Mantessa: Still love is about sacrificing. Love is about accepting each other the way each other is. In the old days, even without knowing each other, people do get married and live happily ever after. You see, love is about sacrificing. Love is about accepting. Love is about knowing each other's responsibilities.

Azer: Hahahaha. That is funny. It sounds as love is not about anything positive you can offer to your lover but accepting what is lacking. You call this self-sacrificial? Actually it sounds the opposite. It proves love is selfish to the extreme! It is the most selfish experience possible, in the true sense of the term: it benefits your life in a way that involves no sacrifice of others to yourself or of yourself to others.
Mantessa: No, no no no no, you got it wrong. Should you value love, it is a form of spiritual value. The nature of love places certain demands on those who wish to enjoy it. People regard themselves as worthy of being loved. They also regard the ones they love as worthy to be loved. That's why they are worth defending for even with own life.

Azer: What about the time, effort and money spent for love? These are not spiritual values.
Mantessa: They are not. Those colorful cards, mouth-watering chocolates and silky lingerie are not spiritual values but they do give form to this spiritual value. Give your wife anything nice, do you receive anything in return? You don't but you do, you get it when the light is turn off if you know what I mean. In fact, some people really don't mind being poor as long as they being together in love. You ought to take another look at love.

Azer: I ought to take another look at love?
Mantessa: Look at love as love itself not on how people define it, not on how people pre-requisite it and certainly not on how people qualify it.

Azer: Pre-requisite requirement in love?
Mantessa: There is. Instead of valuing the spiritual value, people have the need at looking into the material and the physical values. It has been circling on what you do, how much money you earn, must call, how you look like, how tall are you, what race are you, what religion are you and so on. It has always been circling around that area. They prefer the outer side rather the inner side. This is the main reason why they fail in love. They fail to understand. They fail to value. This is the attitude. People are in a hurry. They always are and keep forgetting that love is also about getting to know each other for the rest of their lives. My physical outlook does not define who I am. It's always what is inside.

Azer: Women out there do admit that Azer Mantessa is good looking and attractive though ... hehehehe.
Mantessa: Hehehehehehe.

Some politicians and journalists who call themselves bloggers love branding those who prefer being anonymous as 'snipers' and 'cowards'. Don't they know? An unmasked Zorro is not a Zorro. Spiderman is not a coward - With Great Power Comes Great Responsibilities.

Anyway, I always thought a superman is funny and stupid. It's the underwear thing :-)

Please Do Have Fear ... It's the way to have COURAGE!
