The Evil That Men Doth Unto Men

Throughout history, despots, bigots, dictators, madmen and idiots have caused untold pain and suffering to their fellowmen all because of their insatiable greed and ego or in the name of their misguided faith.

The images coming out of Syria of painfully emaciated children and babies starving to death once again starkly remind us of the evil that men do unto their fellowmen.

The evil that men do unto their fellowmen returns to haunt us to only no avail.

Mankind continues to allow evil in their midst.

Our indifference, our belief that men are basically good mitigate against the battle against evil.

Men are not basically good - they are just basically base.

That might be taken as an insult to our collective ego - herein lies the problem.

If mankind cannot accept that they are basically base - not basically good - then we are not ever going to be able to confront evil squarely in its face.

Mankind only appear to be basically good - on the surface, a facade to deceive. Just scratch a little deeper and the shin is exposed.

And that 'a little deeper' often goes not much further than the sight and temptation of the lucre or the intoxicating prospect of unmitigated power in the hands.

Then all hell breaks lose and evil reigns.

And the divine be damned.

Kluang was a sleepy hollow, but is fast becoming a bustling town. You can't miss the bust-shaped gunung Lambak lording over the place and the town is well known for its tv brand coffee powder

Kluang RailCoffee
The Kluang railway station coffee shop, now re-branded Kluang RailCoffee, is well known for its cuppa of coffee and the charcaol grilled piping hot buns oozing with butter and kaya...It used to attract standing-room only crowds. It still does, but the last time I was there it wasn't a good experience for me. The famous coffee had somewhat lost its oomph and even the buns...The shop has a long and noted history being first opened for business in 1938 and the place is now run by the 3rd generation LIm family. I hope the next time I return, the coffee would regain its oomph. Click to read more...
