Everyone knows what is morally good or bad

Postby Ecmandu » Sat Sep 15, 2018 10:58 pm

I've heard the argument that you NEED the bad to discern the good, some even think through this line that bad is good.

Let me correct that.

What we all know to be morally good is 100 percent consent.

Let's say life is a roller coaster, and one part becomes to scary and you say "no!!!" And you teleport off of it and are safely on the ground.

Maybe 1000 years later you try to go further ...

But it's all on your own terms, and on your own terms, you develop a sense of right and wrong.

You don't need to be out of control of horrors and pains and torments and sufferings to experience right and wrong.

From this, we can conclude, that any opposing world system is evil, to be killed, arrested, imprisoned, it is beyond the pale ... crossing the line from consent to non-consent.

I want to add to this because it may not be clear.

Every being wants a 100% consensual reality; to the extent this doesn't occur, we can define the reality in question a pure evil.

Just accept what is and try to change what you dislike about it.

You can push the universe in a preferred direction but you can't recreate the universe.
