worth re-posting: the beauty of the mind

November 20th, 2011


I believe that what is right is totally relative to perspective. The human mind can, will and does justify anything that it wants! There is no absolute right or wrong, a real scary thought for those who have a need to believe in absolutes.

The beautiful part of this way of thinking is that you have complete control of what’s right for you.  Anytime that someone attempts to thrust their idea upon me, I always put it through the “how’s does this benefit me” filter.  And why shouldn’t I?  I know that at any given time, no man is ever beyond doing something that another man thinks is a total waste of time.

The dangerous component of this way of thinking is man himself. Sigmund Freud said, “Men are more moral than they think and far more immoral than they can imagine.”  The issue I take with this is why does it seem that the “moral” tend to always let the “immoral” control them?  Even in this day of having what seems to be infinite access to information, I wonder if it could be something that’s innate which causes this condition to continue?

The reason why I call our innate sensibilities into question is that the intellectuals who are in control will always play on emotions and never to intellect.  You know the tactic, tell them what that want to hear but never what they need to hear.  It’s so freaking obvious to me! And no matter how much information is revealed, the same patterns continue.  Maybe Aristotle was dead on when he said, “It is thus clear that, just as some are by nature free, and others are by nature slaves, and for these latter the condition of slavery is both beneficial and just.”

But hey like I said earlier, “The human mind can, will and does justify anything that it wants!”
