About me

I was born in Malaysia and have lived in Australia since 1987 with some periods away travelling. I work in a not terribly interesting government type job as it pays reasonably well. I have an inner life that I value much more even if it pays nothing at all.

Originally left liberal, my politics become somewhat libertarian but have now returned to the left once more.

  1. nice travelogue. (i found it searching for trance raver.) curious to know how you saved money to travel like that? keep on your interesting journey, just be nice and patient with local natives, ok? cheers, tt

  2. I discovered your discussion on the secular buddhist page debating with Glenn Wallis. Quite interesting. I started out as a libertarian in college, and now (mid-life) find myself libertarian socialist, anti-capitalist. But I ‘get’ you right-wing so-called libertarian types. 😉 I’m also an atheist Buddhist. I quite liked your ‘spear sutra’ (I originally thought, “does he mean the Rhinoceros Sutra? …oh, right!”) with ‘“.. Last scene of all/
That ends this strange eventful history,
/Is second childishness and mere oblivion,
/Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything” and “gate gate pāragate pārasaṃgate bodhi svāhā. om mani padme hum.”

    Sehr Groovy

    Maybe you don’t remember, it was a few years ago.

    Anyway, nice work.
