We have been taught that ‘we are all sinners’. Whosoever
believes this shares an inherited guilt. This makes us accepting of other
people’s transgressions. The most people require from the wrong doer is to say “what
I did was wrong”, “I’m not happy of what I did”. Then they’re forgiven. This is
good and it’s bad. We forgive the wrong doer for ourselves. But they do need to be taken to account for the society. The physical world is entirely our own making. How do we want to make it?
Let me tell you a story: There once was a drunkard in New York. One of his sons grew
up good. Other son turned out bad. A guy asked the good guy: “Why are you
The good son said: “I saw my dad drunk.”
Then the guy went to the bad son and asked: “Why are you bad?”
Bad son answered: “because my dad was a drunkard.”
What we see from this is, while an externality affects us, our thoughts and action depends on how we understand it, our perspective.
There is an old lady who works as a crossing guard at a
school near where I live. Couple days after the elections she said out
to a man who was walking his kids to school: “Trump, he’s a good guy”.
In the election of Nov 8 2016, there were 61 million votes cast for D.J Trump.
Donald Trump is a man who definitely believes in winning at any
cost. His track record shows this to be true. So we have to wonder:
As a society where do we stand?
Since we live in this society we should understand why people think and act as they do. After the survival needs are met the next thing that a person wants to be high. This is called the feel good effect. Once we have food, clothes and a place to live in,next we all want to feel good which gives us a dopamine doze.
Once a person has tasted the feeling of high (the feel good effect), he becomes hooked to it. He is constantly looking for more of the doze.
