Let’s get started…

May 25, 2010

I honestly believe I have the seemingly rare ability to look at anything objectively. Regardless of my affection or disdain for the subject, I can put personal feelings aside and evaluate based solely on neutral analysis. You can try to find something that my feelings for will blind my rationality but as to this point, it has not been found.

There are a few things I would like to establish before going forward. You may and probably will disagree with me, and that’s fine.

1.) Nothing is inherently “good” or “bad”. These are labels humans assign based on their relation to whether the subject helps or hurts us.

2.) Nothing is inherently “right” or “wrong”. Again, we label based on interaction to our own subjective existence.

3.) Morals are man made constructs used to establish order out of chaos and make societies in which living is easier.

I will not use the words “good”, “bad”, “right”, “wrong” unless I am talking about something in reference to the relationship it has to my own personal life or existence.  The words “correct” and “incorrect” will be used instead to address the validity or faultiness of rational and logical states.

If you cannot grasp these notions or see the distinction I am making, our conversation will be short and frustrating for both parties.

I believe the only inalienable right a being has is control over themselves.

Other rights or privileges are purely results of the society the person has chosen to live in.

And should a person find themselves in a situation they do not like and cannot find a way out of,

the person always has the right to take themselves out of existence.

I am in no way advocating this, I am simply addressing it as a reasonable option and descision that any

sentient creature can make for themselves, though I sincerely hope never has to.
