A Moralist Or A Libertarian?

Who but a bluenose or a puritan would abscond with free will?

Certainly not a libertarian, or a Joseph Conrad, who sees the human spirit as real, explores the human psyche and speaks through story to the world.

Who but an Immanuel Kant, would restrict morality to a system or an Aristotelian, who approaches practical reasoning, based on the notion of reason.

What is good and bad today?

Is the ‘will’ real?

Are we accountable for our feelings?

Whereas, cultural norms almost universally prohibit incestuous relationships.

The degree of ‘appropriate feelings’ seem to becoming regulated by groups like sociological based think tanks and government justice departments.

The increase of population, technology and the decrease of available resources like land and precious metals are separating the ‘haves’ and the ‘have nots’.

I still believe in the ‘good life’ and that requires individuals to live better lives for themselves and those they care about in our society.

Let’s find a healthier balance, before we make too many rules.

What Is Worth The Argument?

To have faith or believing in arguments that conclude in virtue,

To question and inquire how to be noble in conduct and behaviour,

Not for the sake of behaviour, conduct, virtue, argument or faith,

But to learn not to act on needless desire, assertion, impulse, repulse or moral certitude,

And to practice doing this process in all our affairs,

As if logic itself is the product of such a process.

True sensitivity helps us respond to our reaction, impulsivity, repulsiveness and unwanted desire,

This hard work heals our souls with good decisions that lead us to the proper use of those behaviours, conductors,virtues arguments and faith.

Not the other way around…
