A Golden Retriever is no more truer than a wolf but is much more pleasant to be around.

The Nature of Ethics

The game that life is playing is largely one of interwoven parasitism. A being that fools another into servicing its needs instead of its own; yet, and albeit, letting itself to be used by its host in the process.

For us living organisms this began Continue reading “The Nature of Ethics”

Morality

Human morality stemmed from the necessity to live with others and therefore the more tolerable you were the less likely you’d be to get ostracized; and more likely to pass your seed onto the future. Human morality is therefore here with us today by much the same mechanism that the genes of a wolf have rendered the domesticated dog that helps guide a blind man across the street.

Consequently “right” and “wrong “ have always been relative terms associated with survival, time, tribe and circumstance. At a time now when our tribe has become vast territories and nations (and some would argue even the entire planet) we might be on the verge of a moral breakthrough that will either secure our survival for the next few hundred years or lead us to our demise. If we all act together then we only get one chance. If each tribe tries something different, we diversify our risks and increase our chances of survival. But then what if tribalizing ourselves, in and of itself, leads to our demise? Perhaps a hybrid approach is needed!

Unearned

Be it unearned wisdom, unearned wealth, or even things like an unearned sense of self worth – these only serve to expand, in you, all that is satanic and you’d be wise to strive to acquire, achieve and earn only those things you’ve shown to deserve through your hard work, integrity, attitude, commitment and ingenuity.

This satanic rule applies to individuals as much as it does to organizations and political institutions. Be leery, then, of all things unearned.  As you unlock the ability to acquire things unearned, so do you unlock the gates to hell.

Errors

All that is that matters leads to what remains – because all that remains is there because of all that was that mattered! Therefore, do not be too hard on yourself for your past errors. Apologize for them, yes, and do all you can to offer proper restitution but after this, move forward and make the you of tomorrow better than the you of today.

After all, that is all of you that will remain and therefore all that really matters.

The Nature of Forgiveness and Restitution

If someone breaks something of yours, be it intentional or accidental, any ethically minded individual will immediately extend his or her apologies and offer to repair the damage or attempt to replace the item or its value at their own expense.

If however, the individual only says they are sorry and then Continue reading “The Nature of Forgiveness and Restitution”
