    One fifth of a million UK citizens grass their “mates” and rellies to the tax office. This astounding number, seems to indicate a lot of seething resentment, which sort of makes sense to me because while living in London I came across more than my fair share of really nasty, nasty people but I thought I was just unlucky. I feel much better now, knowing it wasn't personal.


    What is wrong with you people?

    What other crimes do you suggest one should turn a blind eye to?

    Maybe you can help me answer this. Do you have *any* unlicensed software on your computer. Have you ever burned a CD for someone else? Ever fudged your tax return (assuming you're old enough to file one). Ever done anything illegal at all?

    The black market economy is a legitimate part of the white market economy. In India they call it Krsna money and Siva money. (Siva is black)

    Not that we need to delve into Hinduism to far, but isn't usually Siva blue?

    To answer your questions, yes, yes, yes, yes.

    No, Siva is black, although he has a blue neck (nila kantaya) because he swallowed the poison that was stirred up when the Raksas and the Asuras tried to get the amrtat by churning the ocean

    Those crimes.


    EDIT, actually when referring to the black market economy I made an error Ksna is used for black money and Siva is white money. However Siva is often depicted as black in other forms like Daksinamurti, who is usually carved from black granite.

    Alright...if we accept this point as true, under what guise can we condemn people for using the system to either 1) report people to the authorities to maintain their own reputation within the economic system or 2) use the governmental elements of the white market economic structure to get ahead?
