Morality basically teaches us what’s right and what’s wrong, what’s acceptable and what’s not. Morality is what’s keeping us from murdering an innocent child and morality helps us do charity. Morality comes from empathy as well. Without empathy, one could be void of morality. Legally speaking, most of the time psychopaths – a legal term for a psychological condition of a severity – are void of empathy therefore void of morality and would do, and kill, as they please for selfish satisfaction at the expense of others.
Morality is what’s keeping a lot of us in check not to murder and burn each other. Morality is a wonderful thing. It keeps us in harmony and it keeps me from stabbing the guy beside me on the bus who kept scratching his balls the entire trip. Yep, morality is quite the good thing because it holds us back from doing things that can severely harm others. It’s a great thing to keep yourself and others in check.
There are many rules in the world and I think some people should be spared the mercy of morality – rapists, serial killers and pedophiles are some of the people I can think of who shouldn’t walk the earth. What benefit are they to society? Keeping them behind bars for so long, giving them government funded assisted treatment and all these dues and processes that rake in the taxes we pay. I demand a fair trial, as much as everyone else deserves it. However, if they’re proven guilty on so many counts, why keep them alive? Pedophiles also share the top spot on my list along with sadistic serial killers. It’s frightening how there’s so many of them but what’s even more frightening is what they do to children especially babies. As if raping a toddler isn’t bad enough, other people get off on seeing and raping newborns. Some parents have children just so they have something to have sex with. Evil as it may but wouldn’t it be better that people like this end up dead? I surely wouldn’t lose any sleep to know that a notorious pedophile is dead. In fact, I’d even sleep better. Why do they deserve to live when all they do is ruin people’s lives for selfish reasons? Think of it as some sort of a parasite; all that parasites do is take in the nutrients from the host that eventually leads to deterioration and even death.
When I said I am not the beacon of morality, I meant it. It’s amazing how people can do the most heinous things to another person and it would take the very breath of God himself to forgive the man and well, there are times that even God himself didn’t forgive the very things he created. If the biblical God runs out of patience and he’s supposedly a being that created everything then why can’t we mere humans feel and do the same? I really think there is no god and that every once in a while there’s an anomaly in evolution like the 4000 genetic diseases known to man and pedophiles who rape babies and display so in front of people.
Then there are times where morality kicks in when you know someone didn’t do the right thing like the extremely impoverished and hungry stealing food to get by because they can’t get a decent job or a living to even earn a dollar to buy bread or knowing that your friend with an end stage terminal disease wants to take their life on their own terms. We all know stealing is something we aren’t supposed to do but what if that thief who stole your fresh baguette wanted to feed himself and his kid that he accidentally have went bankrupt so bad he and his child was forced to be homeless? What if your bestfriend had stage 4 bone cancer and couldn’t live a day more of constant and unending pain? Would you burden them the idea of morality? I personally would rather give the thief my baguette and try to be there for my bestfriend no matter what their choice is. I can’t further burden someone in severe strife just because what I think they do is wrong. They already know what they’re doing is not what most people would be against with but not a lot of people have an abundance of choices unlike my earlier examples.
As usual, I would like to know what you think since I haven’t been so much and I know I have a lot of catching up to do. But, as much as possible, we have to try to stay on topic and not get too carried away with fooling around. So, discuss away, Gorriors!
