Suffering under orthodoxy

From North Korea to Iran, from China to Russia etc. it is possible to suffer under a certain kind of orthodoxy. Maybe in every nation, maybe in every job or neighborhood, even family. The hope of the new tools, the world wide web 2.0, internet access with high speed connection, digital photography, blogging of freethinkers etc. is: to have the wonderful chance to change many kinds of orthodoxy. To open narrow minded hierarchies. To build up communities with more fairness and empathy, more freedom and liberty. The chance to compare global conditions of living is the chance to work against orthodoxy.

(Charles Churchill, 1732-1764)] recently I was also amused by another quotation: Bishop William Warburton (1697-1779): “Orthodoxy is my doxy; heterodoxy is another man’s doxy.”

  1. Powerful words and photos Frizz.


  2. These countries are serious issues.


  3. The internet allows the people of the individual Nations to interact with each other on a more personal level, which is no doubt why our Government’s want to regulate the internet. If that ever happens, we’ll be right back to square one.


  4. To me, an example of the powerful use of photography showed up as a Time magazine cover:


    • yes, many of us remember the “Time Magazine’s recent cover photo of Aisha, an 18-year-old Afghan woman whose nose and ears were sliced off in 2009, under orders from a local Taliban commander…” fits the topic …

  6. Oh, bless you, bless you, dear Brother Frizz, for taking this very strong stand against the kinds of orthodoxies around the world that enslave and destroy and cripple and hold us all away from each other. So very wonderful is the worldwideweb in facilitating the breaking down of barriers! Great work you are doing here, Frizz!

  9. And still on these days, still there are people suffering…Still there are people who make their lives just stepping on the others, specially women, …And then, they say “my words have been taken out of context”


Hearing from you makes my day!
