Is madness our new basis for morals?
Forgive me if I don’t understand, and it may be just me, but, are peoples psychological profiles becoming a little more skewed than I would think to be acceptable?
I am absolutely resolute in my believe that individuals have a right to there opinions, but I must question, how far should someones opinion be allowed to effect the lives of those that they interact with?
Let me explain.
While in my “opinion” the act of drinking alcohol is NOT offensive. The ABUSE of drinking alcohol is repugnant.
And from a morals perspective I am disgusted and revolted by the fact that AFTER an escapade of insatiable alcohol abuse, it has become a standard of accomplishment and pride, that it was performed.
Not so long ago when you were found drunk, disorderly, and bereft of any and all intelligence, due to alcoholic consumption you were ridiculed, shunned, and rebuked.
Now individuals take pride and admiration in their stupidity, ignorance, and irresponsibility.
If they are lucky, they amazingly find their way through the evening unharmed. Then to my amazement, will discuss the event with satisfaction, contentment, and flagrant fascination.
How has intentionally inducing stupidity, idiocy, and disrespect become an “accomplishment” or “success”? Let alone a process that is DESIRED?
Why is it that we now glorify ignorant, irresponsible, and immature behavior as if its a GOAL we hope to ACCOMPLISH?
Alcohol is merely an example however. This trend of glamorizing ignorant, irresponsible, and immature behavior expands far beyond any specific activity.
It has actually become the social “standard” by which we operate.
And yet we wonder why are country has fallen into such disarray. We question why we can no longer triumph, succeed, or endure.
It is our apathy that has killed us. It is our acceptance that even mediocre is to high to achieve.
We have fallen. And we have no desire, nor motivation to climb once again.
Is this as far as we have come? Is this the best that we can accomplish?
I know there are those who have overcome this moral degradation. I am among them. Does that mean there is hope?
Are there enough of us left to light the way to an intelligent, mature, and responsible revolution?
A revolution of the body? A revolution of the mind? A revolution of our very spirits?
I pledge to hold the path. I pledge to light the way. For it is my hope, my fortitude, and my courage that will keep the flame burning.
And it is my faith that will guide me to those who can share in our endeavor.
Will we eventually achieve a world of honest, strong, enlightened, individuals? It is a dream we can hope for, but only time will tell.
