I get a fair amount of email from people who chastise me for berating people’s beliefs in silly pseudo-science and other related nonsense like talking to the dead. The most common question I get is: “If these people are happy, why do you feel the need to attack their beliefs?”
Well, here’s why:
SAN JOSE, Calif.—A Bay Area lawmaker wants to spread the ancient Chinese ritual of feng shui. San Francisco Assemblyman Leland Yee says feng shui would create a positive work environment in all state buildings.
NBC11’s Damian Trujillo reported that the DMV office at Alma Street in San Jose might have to abide by the new rules of feng shui, if the resolution passes.
But critics say feng shui should be the last thing on the minds of lawmakers, in the midst of the budget crisis that the state is in.
“What clutter can be, is stuck energy in places where energy isn’t moving into our lives,” said Joan Green, a feng shui expert.
Green says feng shui is allowing energy to flow freely in a room, creating a more positive work and home environment. A lot of it has to do with how people arrange their furniture. Chimes also sometimes help in the energy flow.
Now, Yee says this is what all state buildings need to create that positive work environment. So, he’s introduced a resolution to promote feng shui in state buildings.
California is in one of the worst budget crises it’s ever faced and some silly-assed lawmaker wants to waste time and taxpayer money on arranging the state’s buildings in accordance with “feng shui” concepts.
It’s not enough for people with silly beliefs to practice those beliefs themselves as they’re never happy with that. They want to share the joy of their silly beliefs with everyone around them and when they get elected to office and come up with stupid ideas like this it ends up costing everyone for no good reason.
