The New 10 Christopher Hitchens

How might a Decalogue look if it was written for the 21st century? Christopher Hitchens wrote a version of the 10 commandments for the 21st century:

1. Do not condemn people of the basis of their ethnicity or color

2. Do not even think about using people as private property, or as owned or as slaves

3. Despise those who use violence or the threat of it in a sexual relationship

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 of the web of nature; try to think an act accordingly

7. Do not imagine that you can escape judgment if you can rob people with a false prospectus 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. Be willing to renounce any God or any faith if any holy commandments should contradict any of the above
