What is unfair? I think the whole world is unfair!
Let's say I have a blacklist of people in my mind who've crossed me in one way or another that I'd like to off.
Then in the finale act, I'll just do myself in also as a kind of self-retribution for participating in it all.
Maybe you'd say, "No!" I should not do such. Beyond saying you disagree what then? Nothing.
Why shouldn't I do as I please, it's my life to do with as I please!
If you and I disagree on what is fair, the best I could do is to get society involved and perhaps make my case to them in an effort to get a law passed on the issue. Of course you have the same option as well; whoever makes the best case wins.
Whoever makes the best case wins, really?
Yes! In this particular case, whoever succeeds in getting society to enact a law around what they feels is right wins.
I'd say many have succeeded in doing what they please.
Take some mass shooting wherein the shooter didn't care about dying, or 9/11...
Do you seriously think you won
against these with your "best case" to some social system they clearly didn't care an ounce for?
Perhaps you both won.
Such a person on a suicide mission will probably kill lots of people, before he gets killed…..what’s your point?

In this context “winning” is getting society to agree with what you feel is right. Humans are natural social creatures, so when you can get the backing of the society they have chosen to become a part of; to support their version of right vs wrong, they get to live in a social environment where their version of right is enforced by the law of society
Kurieuo wrote:Yes, I can see how "society" agreeing means one is winning.
Sadly, in Southpark society you're the loser it seems in many episodes. But hey, at least our modern society wouldn't condone such violence against you, I don't think... maybe laugh, but not condone.
I don’t do South Park, I don’t have the patience to sit through 7 plus minutes of it, but if they want to consider me a loser; I’m okay with that considering the source.
Kurieuo wrote: Furthermore, I'm not sure I understand the reason why such "should not" have done as they pleased despite laws they evidently disagree with. After all, it's their life, not societies'.
If you choose to live by yourself; away from society, you can do whatever you want and suffer the consequences thereof.
Because the society of people will outnumber you, you must take their laws into consideration before doing as you please. My point only applies if you choose to live in a society of other people.
Kurieuo wrote:Yes, tell that to those who suicide kill themselves. Don't you know they go straight to paradise? They got what they wanted for sacrificing their life. A "higher" society agreed with them if you will, just as meaningful as any finite human society which'll die out right?
Yes those types do exist. As far as them going to paradise, that is a theistic position; remember who you are talking to? Is there a point to this?
Kurieuo wrote: The most I see you could say is such a person was a loser in the sense that they were a lost to society. But then, remove yourself from your shoes and place yourself in theirs -- as lost to society and vice-versa society being lost on them, should they not do as they please even if that involved killing lots of people and in their eyes making a lasting improvement upon the world?
As I said before, if you live by yourself and stay away from other people, you can do what you want and suffer the consequences that may result.
Kurieuo wrote:Bah, to someone who cares zero for the consequences that society might pay them, such matters little.
Yeah those types usually either wind up in prison or dead. Either way; problem solved.

Just because I don’t agree with all of Christianity doesn’t mean I can’t agree with any of it.

No one polluting the world, no wars and massive evils committed, no this species and that species becoming extinct, no natural environments being corrupted and laid to waste. Is such thinking something that should not be had?
This is a huge planet with lots of deserted areas where people do not exist. Perhaps he could go to one of those places and live by himself
Perhaps a terrorist could go to a deserted area and live alone, but if he wants to die killing you, and he succeeds, then he wins regardless of what you or any one "society" says. Right? Well, at least you won
because the law in society didn't agree with him killing you. You have that I suppose.
My reference to winning was about people who do care about living, who do care about doing right, and who do care about living peacefully with others; not whatever it is you are describing now.
It's alright Kenny, no one would seriously enjoy killing you.
Sorry, now I'm beginning to understand why you feel acceptance by society is so important.
Such a sick person who has no respect for others, or the rules of society will not have respect for your God says either, right?
