Well he is not so far off but matters like these are never openly debated because society just doesn't allow it...expected.
It’s not so much that I disagree with him, just that I think most of it was derivative of the good points, especially this one:
'To be self-serving'? Everything is Self-serving
And you're right, society is so full of **** for not allowing such debate. In this case, I guess it is accepted in polite society that 'self serving' is 'bad/evil'. Why do we have such a hard time accepting our own egocentricity?
What if I say to you that "Evil" is a necessary condition to keep the world going, to keep the "Bios" busy and alert, to keep consciousness engaged eh? How would you answer with some degree of intellectual honesty?
Oh I think it is necessary all right, but not for 'busy work'. Without choices, life would be meaningless. And I haven’t exhausted the possibilities of my preferred choice yet. What do you choose? Is that honest enough?
Am I endorsing evil? NO! But I think that I do understand the Moral landscape dance better now that I am older...somethings are necessary even if we abhorred them! Just like death.
I’m glad to see you add death to the things that are allowed to be discussed. I’m not in a hurry to get there, but I find the subject intriguing.
