On An Alternative Ten Commandments


Christopher Hitchens’ Ten Commandments:

  1. Do not condemn people on the basis of their ethnicity or their colour.
  2. Do not ever even think of using people as private property.
  3. Despise those who use violence or the threat of it in sexual relations.
  4. Hide your face and weep if you dare to harm a child.
  5. Do not condemn people for their inborn nature.
  6. Be aware that you, too, are an animal, and dependent on the web of nature. Try to think and act accordingly.
  7. Do not imagine you can avoid judgement if you rob people (by lying to them) rather than with a knife.
  8. Turn off that fucking cell phone.
  9. Denounce all jihadists and crusaders for what they are: psychopathic criminals with ugly delusions and terrible sexual repressions.
  10. Reject any faith if their commandments contradict any of the above.

“Don’t swallow your moral code in tablet form.”
– Christopher Hitchens
