Why I write about tongkat ali
I do not sell tongkat ali. I do not issue recommendations where to buy tongkat ali. I do not answer questions on where I get my own supply, I only reply, that, as a matter, of principle, I do not answer the question.
I write about tongkat ali for the same reason as I write about feminism, or about not travelling on planes, or about not committing suicide even though there is no compelling reason to be alive.
I write about tongkat ali and many other topics for the same reason for which others, not me, have accounts on Facebook and Twitter, or write blogs. This is: I like to communicate, to say what I think.
I like to write just like others like to sing or play guitar, without pursuing the commercial interest to make others pay to listen.
Of course, communicating with an audience is more thrilling than just writing a diary. And as it has evolved over the past few years, I have a worldwide secure readership only on one niche topic: tongkat ali
And therefore (for the purpose of having my thoughts on topics other than tongkat ali survive the Internet information avalanche), even my political and philosophical ideas are presented as a sidekick to my explanations on tongkat ali.
