I am a simple person who left school before I graduated because a group of my piers would not stop bullying me..attacking me. I went back and got my GED several years ago when I was told I was a shoe in..I never knew it. I always thought I was less than. It has taken me much of my adult life to understand there is no real absolute good or bad, right or wrong..That it is all only perception.
The banding together of men to prove they are right or to combat what they believe to be evil is simply a matter of perception and how many people you can gather of like mind to prove a point..The more people with bigger weapons usually win in the end. Does winning mean they are right?..No..It only means they won the fight because there were more of them...
I just got to thinking....If there were basic (I think there are) rules of nature for humans what do you ladies and gentlemen think they are? I'm not talking religious law...I'm talking about the way we would behave if....lets say...There were no God or devil. If you were to write your own rules what would they be?
My # 1 is "Don't take more than I need in life". Most animals kill only what they need for survival sake...Humans kill way more than they need, and they also kill for pure sport and recognition of power, some even kill just for fun.
My # 2 Treat other people like I would like to be treated.
My # 3 Remember that right or wrong, good and evil, is in the eye of the beholder. There is no absolute true right or wrong, but there are things I can do to live with others to better help society to grow...Respect the fact we are all different.
My # 4 Stay out of my face and I will stay out of yours...Respect the privacy of others
My # 5 Share with others in need, if I end up with more than I need.
