I'm just going to just get out to explain central themes of Lothlorien from my POV in case some of the folks form other forums migrate here :

a) Sophistry

Lothorien still sees itself as elite, except that in this case, it has become so ingrained in our character that it no longer matters and it is no longer pursued actively ( unlike the way the PAP pusues elitism ). There will always be people who are too cool to care and denizens develop a high level of style.

b) Worldliness

While most members are Singaporean, this place is as unSingaporean as it can ever be. Many Lothlorienites spend many years out of the country. While it easy to presume that this can be a point of discomfort for many denizens, I suspect that most have outgrown that phase. We'll see how this goes. I suspect that Lothlorienites will never be integrated into Singapore, that may not be the ideal thing anyway. Whether it is an unwillingness or an inability is something I'm here to explore over the next few months.

c) Aesthetics

You will notice that Lothlorienites have an above average sense of aesthetics compared to other Singaporeans, as such, this is some sort of refuge for people to indulge in arts and literature. As such, Lothlorienites can be vocal and acerbic critics of the mainstream. Of course, there is nothing wrong in engaging that and hurting some sensiblities along the way. I personally, like to be entertained and will enjoy Da Vinci Code or the Xmen regardless of what the critics say.

The Tenth Pit manifesto will forever be a dark mirror that will be held against Lothlorien. My role and manifesto is to remind Lothlorienites that it only takes a small step for :

Sophistry to turn into Snobbishness.
Worldliness into Alienation
Aesthetics into Tackiness.

There will always be a painful need for adversary to grow. The Tenth Pit shall be the staging ground for a new clash of ideals.

Regards

I am the Dragon lord,
My Power is unsurpassed,
I created you, toserve me, to please me,
Oppose me, I will destroy you utterly,
Obey me, I shall feed you,
I am your Liege,
Noblesse Oblige.

A new Entity has come into my World,
Age of Gods,
I gather the Dragon Horde to challenge them,
Chaos War.
Where lesser beings seek to escape,
from One World to Another,
Through Fabric of Time ripped and distorted.

And so is Singapore, so is Singapore,
Who is Dragon Lord?
WHo is God?
