I’ve been waiting to roll this one out again.
Esteem without erudition is a bad thing.
Technically, esteem is old. However, it relates to respect in society, in the family model, it’s fully social and honour, personal honour based on virtue and the elimination of vice (so no visiting brothels or carousing). If you were a gentle-person, you were HELD “in esteem”. You don’t get to choose it for yourself. It’s like letting lottery players pick the winner. They can try to change the definition but in adults, that’s what esteem still means.
It is not popularity or friendliness. It is moral authority and intellectual adeptness. A genius is esteemed for their brilliance, a priest is esteemed for their sage purity.
Kids are meant to have esteem in their development. Sure, you might be growing new hair in strange places but this is normal.
Matured adults? You’re meant to have a stable identity, yet we still see teenage habits, patterns and thought processes. It’s disgusting.
They’re backwards, hardly immature exactly but regressing.
As in, they’ll become more emotionally unstable with time, as the duties of adulthood overwhelm them and they falsely view these as a burden, while suffering for the childhood potential they refuse to admit is over.
e.g. those intolerable Baby Boomers weren’t as insufferable 20 years ago, and 20 years before that would probably have seemed okay.
It’s called spoiled rotten for a reason, entitlement is a cancer that sinks in early.
Peter Pan was a warning, a child snatcher would take you and kill you, sure, but becoming a Lost Boy would ruin your life and deaden any potential you might’ve had.
It’s no coincidence in the original, Peter murders them, rather than “letting” them grow up.
Your feelings lie. Your feelings can be totally and utterly false, wrong, bad. In fact, if there’s a major problem in your life, your emotions probably reflect this. They test nothing, Byron was a wreck.
If only we had been warned about this.
Feelings are largely reactions to physical and circumstantial states.
Especially if you claim not to believe in “biological determinism” (nature).
Therapy wouldn’t ever be needed if feelings were always logical, right and pure.
Our society wants people to glow with virtue, while demonstrating none. Kinda like staring at a glass of Vitamin C rich OJ and hoping it’ll displace your cold.
We listen to our “feelings” (usually a cover for the baser instincts and impulses) to smother the conscience.
Beneath that, spirit. I won’t hold my breath on that one.
You will pay eventually.
Stolen esteem (we used to call that hubris) + Shitty economy forcing adults to behave like children + Vice after Vice after Vice =
If you are a shitty person and you feel it, that’s a sign all is right and just with the world. Your perceptions are completely right, you just don’t like them because you’re a brat.
God forbid Lord Fauntleroy be expected to change or do something mildly unpleasant.
Feeling bad isn’t a bad thing – if it was just deserts. That’s called guilt, remorse, shame and all sorts of other words we need to bring back. Feeling bad can’t be a punishment from God, can it, atheists? It’s funny how the Nurture people are also first to reach for the pills, although we’re all completely the same, which doesn’t stop at the neck. (Fact: depressed people aren’t actually serotonin deficient, that was a lie debunked to sell pills and the theory hasn’t died).
Atheists don’t believe they are soul-less. They must be. Psychopaths, if you look it up, like other “low empathy” defined conditions e.g. Aspergers, don’t believe they have no feelings for others. Why? Faulty perception.
If humans aren’t sacred, our life is worth nothing. We are like ants, our suffering (rape, theft, murder) is nothing to balk at. It’s natural. Nature is violent and cruel, it’s good for the environment. There is no secular morality possible, it’s an oxymoron. Only holy things have rights per se, bequeathed as part of their spiritual power e.g. holy water has the right to baptize, no other water will do. Only humans go to heaven, not dogs (they don’t need to). Morality is an objective structure (it doesn’t differ by individual; their sex, race, whatever else) and it is based on an absolute premise: there can be no good without the real existence of evil. We shun and punish evil and pursue and reward good, all societies of longevity do this or devolve into savagery. The modern amorality considers popularity and the groupthink of “consensus reality” to determine an ever-changing and propaganda-useful right (elite) and wrong (everyone under them). The Pleasure Principle belonging to Freud defined the rapist, not a good man. You were expected to grow out of the Id-only stage as a toddler.*
They need to brainwash you because mind control only works if the entire group falls for it.
A bad person feeling bad is a good thing.
A good person feeling bad is complicated. For example, more depressed countries tend to be multicultural areas, nobody dare study this.
If you want a secular example of the rights point – only a native citizen has a (God-given) right to live in a country. Rights to do are based on facts of nature, what you are. Those do not change.
*Hedonism is the sure sign of a weakened mind, always has been the #1 indicator of psychiatric dysfunction as long as pathologies have been recorded. They have no authority to lecture from.
The retardation of the brain regions involved in impulse control is the physical, undeniable reason for this.
“When presented with tempting stimuli, individuals with low self-control showed brain patterns that differed from those with high self-control. The researchers found that the prefrontal cortex (a region that controls executive functions, such as making choices) was more active in subjects with higher self-control. [DS: normal] And the ventral striatum (a region thought to process desires and rewards) showed boosted activity in those with lower self-control.” [DS: retarded, compensatory over-excitation]
Literally retarded growth.
