How do you picture a car-free street? What is your vision for it?
MY VISION FOR A CAR FREE STREET : - I am walking with a friend of mine and witnessing hundreds of Sign Boards sayings like; "Luxury is prohibited in this locality, a person found violating the law will be charged a fortune" .. - Police mobiles announcing time and again this statement : "Accept equality by your conscience or it will be forced" .. - And all the population of world has gotten flabby and this obesity is declared main contribution of moto-vehicles. :) ... Personally, I do like this Idea, which is very nice but equally unrealistic. Even I will prefer a car then kicking bicycle under the frying sun. :)

What makes a good judge?
I would say that a complete justice is unachievable, it is only a percentage one can reach. This is because of constraints which arise in the form of Culture and Norms, Stereotypes, case to case variation, and above all the lack of true and complete knowledge which mostly accompanies. Other than these are the limits of one's analytical thinking and the life one has lived can contribute indirectly.

Do you think you are free?
Hello Mr. Thomas, I agree with your points. Infact these examples were in my mind when I was raising this question. But Let me add some more. the examples you have given are of great people or great minds, who were having brilliant causes to live or even die for. Jesus Christ was a prophet, his cause was endowed on him , to preach. Nelson Mandela, a leader, to whome whole South Africa was looking in hope. and Franki a doctor who was practicing his Psychotherapuetic method in prison for survial, and thus survived. What about a common person? who doesn't know what he lives for. No cause, no objectives. Nothing to eascalate him. How can we expect from him the acts like great one did? they would be no more common if they do so. I am not blaming the system or governmnet here as we ourselves have made them. But why we have overtaken these systems so much on us that even our intellect is no more free.

This is what I am talking about Everyone is running after status and, of course. This is never ending race. if one wants to participate in this Marathon of Status s/he needs to have stamina of money. And I ask What is this status in the first place? You want to impress someone or everyone? If yes why? One might answer, people will not make us friends, will not make any relation with us, or at least won’t call us civilized. Why we are so greedy for these fallacies? I think of these relations as something one can easily buy in supermarket, if having enough money. So, they are not pure relations, but duplicity. If people don’t recognize me as what I am, by my true intellect, but with what I have. OR get impressed by any of my signboard which I gained from treachery or from whatever mean. Then truly its more loss then gain. Mr. Julius, you said that “We are slaves of our minds.” . It would be more than good if the case was so. I say Go for what your mind and heart says. we have accepted things as ours but in fact they are very imposed on us.

You are talking about media here. Yes no doubt it is true that media has power to bring a change or even a revolution, like in Egypt or in Libya from tweets. The thing is At one side it gives us a better way to communicate with each other while most times, it also imposes many things in our lives to which we find no escape. I mean look at our intellectual life, we are so much influenced by media. Our way of thinking, life style and even daily diets, all are "Made By Media". One other thing, they cover only public opinions not an intellect thought. Of course, sites like TED is exception here. And these are very few in number. Still another fact is, Telecommunication media works under the supervision of governmental regularities. Sometimes Sites and channels get blocked when find working against rules and regulations. So, again we are bounded.

Why is it so difficult to live a simple life in First World Countries?
Hello Mr. Varlan In response to your last writing I would like to say that; - To my surprise, everyone is more comfortable and happy while doing a steady job. Get your per month emolument, enjoy being without risks, and take zero headaches. I am not criticizing you, but on one side we usually talk about change and on other we feel no courage to bring that change. Not even in our own lives. - I was In the same position as you are now for the last two years. I was doing a ‘good’ job. Everything was fine to everyone, instead to me. I was extremely unhappy. People called me fortunate by having such a job. At last I decided to left, however it took two years for me to decide. Now I am good with myself. Ok fine I am out of money, but I am out of that deadly tension as well which was pinching my mind and soul every single day. I followed my heart. At least I can say that now. - But I am single. My decision affected me only. I don’t know how it feels when one has on his shoulder the responsibility of others, of families, of parents. If you were single like me, I would definitely suggest you to take a step immediately. But you are not. Still there is hope. You can sharing your feelings to your family. They may support you and you may reach to a very appropriate decision soon. 
