Engineering Madness

Are the seven deadly sins just a bunch of extreme mistakes? 

Could these 7 big mistakes be a bunch of smaller mistakes?

Where is control or self-control lurking during all this mistake making?

The idea that we create our own madness is no more real than the need to shame or blame people for being sick or ill.

Dante and Aristotle were experts on the topic.

Compassion and kindness are necessary when coping with mistakes.  And it is irrespective of the outcome.

In society today some forms of madness lead to crimes against humanity.

The lesser form of these crimes are considered self-harm.

It is necessary to find compromising ways to deal with bad behaviours or crime.

For the most part the ethics are clear:  do no harm.

It is better to condemn a criminal to prison or some form of confinement for their own safety and people in society.

In the future, we will find better ways to treat people and do less harm.

Today it is up to us as individuals to learn to treat ourselves and each other in less harmful ways.

I believe the ‘good life’ is a good choice regardless of the outcome. 

An alternative to sin or mistake.


Is there any place better?

Why is the nature of the beast like an attraction to danger?

Can we stop ourselves from doing self-harm?

Are you a chaos junkie?

Socrates said “I know I know nothing.”

Learn to control the urge to gamble or do self harm.

There is a limit to being ignorant in which getting help is the best alternative.

A lifestyle to promote life is the best direction any of us can learn.

We need not open the doors to extreme forms of being.

Why is self-harm attractive?
