The New Routine

As it is now just past midnight on the first official day of my new, regular salon for world peace, I am pleased you have managed to arrive here as expected.

Preventing Presumptuousness

As you will probably have encountered yourself, dear guest, there is an impertinent amount of presumptuousness in the world, including well-meaning presumptuousness.  I have been wondering, therefore, whether you usually consider yourself, in relation to your social, intellectual and economic interactions, to be a trainee, a servant, a colleague, or by some other descriptive term.

Global Consequences

Oh dear.  It is so difficult to find good help nowadays.

Political servants enjoy blowing trumpets and plastering their names all over buildings and screens.  They generally make a considerable nuisance of themselves.

Sending Out Important Invitations

As you may have noticed, dear guest, I am often required to send out vast quantities of invitations.  It is one of my usual occupations, of course.

Peace, Quiet, Comfort and Privacy

To feel at peace often means to feel safe and relaxed, away from the prying eyes of voyeurs. 

Tuesday, October 25, 2016


My dear guest, I usually invite you here in your capacity as a citizen-philanthropist.

Media for Peace

How can the use of media, including social media, create a better, more peaceful world?

A Peaceful Afternoon

For thousands of years, the desire to create world peace has resulted in failure.  The main question of the defeatists is often: Why bother?

Living without Obsessions

In Australia, as elsewhere, the people who obsessively want to acquire an excessive amount of political power, whether they obtain political power or not, often appear primarily interested in large amounts of money.  They want to have control of large amounts of money even without really knowing what to do with that money except to spend it on a whim of their own choosing.  They usually confuse vanity with magnanimity.

Your Caring Duties

There is no more important caring duty than creating world peace.  For a person with a serious yet enlightened disposition, combining that duty with other caring duties is not at all difficult, as long as everyone else does a fair share of the caring.

What Shall We do with the Drunken, Lecherous Sailor?

It is impossible to trust a drunken, lecherous sailor, or even just a drunken one.

Unfortunately, drunken, lecherous sailors have been all too common in military and merchant shipping services.  And everyone pays the price for that.

To Be Truly Free

I have invited you here for breakfast this morning for a very special reason.  Please be seated.

The Beginning of the Digital Twaklinesque Festival of Peace

Whatever your views about religion or art or politics, you are invited to make a peaceful and possibly additionally useful contribution to the Digital Twaklinesque Festival of Peace.

In Memory

Have you ever thought about whether there is actually a connection between memories and intended memorials?

Successfully Peaceful Economic Leadership

There is very little difference between successfully peaceful economic leadership, successfully peaceful cultural leadership and successfully peaceful political leadership.

Mental Health and Peace

Health is meant to mean wholeness and wholesomeness.  It is meant to mean goodness and graciousness and gracefulness and gratitude.  It is meant to mean peace.

Census Processes, Birthdays and Peace

A census can reveal many things about people, and about the world, including why the world is in a mess.  This is particularly the case when a census process is developed and implemented in an atmosphere of secrecy and incompetence.  That process may sometime even simulate totalitarianism.

Political Legitimacy in Theory and Practice

When putting scientifically verifiable Twaklinological theories into practice, any reasonably competent Twaklinological practitioner will quite likely wish to be even fairer than before, and more efficient and more effective.  This is usually possible after receiving advanced training.

How to Develop and Maintain a Secure and Stable Financial System

The problem with unenlightened bankers is that they have a tendency to think alike.  That is not at all surprising considering the inadequate training they have received.

Strictly Confidential By Law

When something is strictly confidential, especially strictly confidential by law, it is difficult to map.

A Caring Salonnière

There is never any dishonesty, coarseness or scheming permitted here in my salon for world peace, or anywhere else in Villa Twaklinilkawt.  The language here is always without belligerence and pretensions.

Literature for Peace

Although the library of enlightenment, here in Villa Twaklinilkawt, is itself a place of peace, it is unlike this salon in that it is not a place for discussion.  The quietness of the library means that it is not a meeting place at all.

On My Way to the UK

Oh dear.  I was hoping to hold my serene salon for world peace here in Adelaide again today but I have received an urgent request to attend to political matters further afield.

Duties of Enlightened Leaders

Welcome to my salon for world peace, dear guest.  

Are you here to assist me?  I do not understand why I am not at all familiar with your leadership abilities.

Overcoming Egocentrism

Understanding the needs, values, motives and emotions of other people has rarely been easy for individuals of any age.  Empathy requires people to possess the ability to acknowledge and comprehend a wide range of points of view other than their own.

Easing Distress

When people feel under pressure they are more likely to feel threatened.  When people feel threatened, they are more likely to be aggressive.  To ease pressure is to ease distress and calm situations.  That is why I have invited you here, to my serene salon, dear guest, yet again.
