    Of course I do my best to avoid the most unethical choices I could make but it doesn't really change the fact that I'm still making a lot of unethical choices every day, just because I'm too lazy or other things are more important to me than that. I mean, I'd rather watch movies than go hunting every day, you know?

    But one thing I'm pretty sure of is that I'm not any better than anyone else here. Everybody is fucking selfish and I'm no exception.

    I do not know if primitivism is the answer? Maybe for some it it?

    As for living a ethical life and making the right choices. Nobody is perfect you know.
    Everyone makes mistakes and some people learn from there mistaked. Some don, t.
    It is not about absolutes.
    It is about finding the right balance.
    Thinking in absolutes is the dualistic way of thinking.

    As long as there are others, including other species, being exploited by this insane world which is escalating as I type--then you cannot really BE sane unless you allow awareness of what is going on, and do your bit--whatever you can--to speak out and stand up against what is going on. If you do not, and want to ignore to stay 'blissful' then it is apathy masquerading as a phony bliss

    A lot of the psychological pain--which this insane culture conveniently calls 'mental illness'--is because OF the insanity, and will be a combination of one's own personal problems in this world and also awareness of the problems OF the world who are affecting all of us as we are all interconnected. it is dis-connection which brings dis-ease

    Sane insane. Another dualism to devide the world into. See what is going on? You, re with us or with the terrorist. It, s the false dilema of the excluded middle.
    When you take a minute to think about it maybe you will understand how narrow minded this is. It, s a black and white world view. Very simplistic and childlike of you ask me.

    Hello my friend. Insanity is becoming more noticeable and it is a good thing actually.
    According to the Mayans, as we all know, consciousness is naturally being raised since the beginning of the year 2012.
    In older ages, if your behavior was slightly ''odd'' or misplaced, the use of violence was socially accepted and encouraged.
    For example the family members were allowed to beat you up. And if it didn't worked the Church was allowed to make an intervention.
    Immorality was not only totally unaccepted but punished with torture and ultimately, with death.
    A lot of people were killed during medieval times, for this very same cause we are discussing here.
    So we have to understand this change that is taking place in our world.
    This fight between Good and Evil, Order and Caos, is (hopefully) coming to an end, for humanity to finally find love, peace and balance.
    Sometimes is very hard to remain positive, I know how painful the world can be... But if we adopt a contemplative state of mind, our problems will gradually cease to exist.

    I found the world such a nice, relaxed and peaceful place in the 80's and 90's people seemed a lot more on happier. Life is becoming so much more stressful.

    “And how do you know that you're mad? "To begin with," said the Cat, "a dog's not mad. You grant that?" I suppose so, said Alice. "Well then," the Cat went on, "you see a dog growls when it's angry, and wags it's tail when it's pleased. Now I growl when I'm pleased, and wag my tail when I'm angry. Therefore I'm mad.”
