Basic Rights versus Earned Rights
This is a strait up extension of conclusions I came to on this thread http://www.highexistence.com/topic/what-is-your-way-of-restoring-your-faith-in-humanity/
The thing is, I have no authority to define those myself and enforce them, I can help in the process though.
I know we all hate the idea of forcing anything on people, and you are absolutely right, I don’t object to that. But every philosophy you currently enjoy as a free right is being taken away from other people who deserve it.
This thread is not about forcing anything but only about coming to reasonable conclusions to provide everyone with the same freedom you enjoy. It is bad to enforce but it is empathic to try to find a way to appropriately justify everything our civilization enforces and ignores.

“If you function out of innocence–not out of knowledgeability but out of childlike innocence–then you can never come to any harm, because it leaves no trace. You remain free of your actions. You live totally and yet no action burdens you.
Is it just me or this really sounds like total bullshit? How exactly do you remain free of your actions? It seems like playing dumb so you don’t have to take any responsibility for your actions which eventually leads to doing absolutely nothing.
@tigerturban, I can see that real men know how to copy and paste. Thanks for your irreplaceable wisdom.
@beyond, Yep, mankinds endless search for the great excuse that proves they are not responsible for their own behaviour :) That’s what I said about spirituality, sure it is nice to acheive, but absence of empathy is still apathy, a spiritual person is no exception.
