    The Impact Of Immorality​



    by Philip Atkinson


    All understanding is built upon morality, a set of values against which reason interprets events, and this morality is an essential and physical part of every adult human. It is formed by the experiences of upbringing during the first seven years of infancy, and the resulting personality created by this Understanding may be separated into two distinct types:


    Selfish those whose code of morality places them self ahead of all other considerations, so their behavior is controlled only by convenience (Immoral).
    Unselfish those who revere a code of morality ahead of themselves, which controls their behaviour (Moral).

    The Selfish, or Immoral
    The selfish, or immoral, person is someone who has been taught to prize themselves above everything, hence they: 1. Do not respect others—not their lives, property, rights, freedoms, nor opinions. They only respect themselves, their own feelings, opinions, rights and freedoms.
    2. Dissipate Wealth—by placing all their efforts into indulging their impulses while avoiding the demands of others, they can only exhaust, and not accumulate, wealth
    3. Are Tyrannical—being a slave to their own emotions means they demand everyone else becomes the same slave.
    4. Are irresolute— at the mercy of the vagaries of their feelings they have lost the military spirit and are whimsical, disloyal and cowardly.
    5. Are irrational—unrestrained by any morality except that of convenience, they are unable to resist the demands of their impulses, so their reason becomes a slave of their feelings, which corrupts their understanding.
    6 Win Misery despite indulging their urges they find only unhappiness.


    Unselfish, or Moral
    Adopting any set of values that prize something other than private indulgence, allows an individual to: 1. Respect Others—the adopted values dictate that self is subordinate to the community, so the general welfare of others is more important than private welfare.
    2. Create Wealth— the energy supplied by physical appetites is changed into lasting achievements rather than fleeting moments of pleasure. A moral man may build a fence instead of pursuing sexual gratification; a moral woman may repair her children's clothes instead of seeking the attentions of the opposite sex.
    3. Be Rational— by suppressing the whimsical demands of emotions the individual can form can form a stable sensible understanding, which allows the notions of justice and duty.
    4 Win Happiness—citizens can find fulfillment by upholding justice and performing their duty. Able to pursue worthwhile and rewarding tasks in the ordered community allowed by the adoption of an unselfish morality. Secure in the knowledge that their efforts are enriching the thing they cherish most, their community, which will survive beyond their own life-span.


    Summary
    A moral individual improves their world by creating riches perceived by a clear understanding and won through self-sacrifice, an immoral (selfish) individual achieves the opposite; they consume wealth by sacrificing all around them on the altar of their private desires while hiding this fact by lying.

    The moral make their community richer and cleverer, while the immoral generate poverty and delusion.

    I like posting articles like these. I'm always amazed at how deafly silent the liberals are when I do. They don't have anything to say all of a sudden. It's like they've just been hit between the eyes with a brick. A "TRUTH" brick.

    The liberals are laughing too hard to operate a keyboard. Where do you get this crap from anyways? Is it possibly http://www.moralsexplainedbyanidiot.com ? It sounds more like a communistic manifesto than anything else. Call someone immoral because they spend the money they earn rather than hoard it? Was this supposed to be posted in the humor section? It should be...it's a joke.

    You're pretty thick in the skull MM. I don't expect much of anything to penetrate that dense liberal fog you live in.

    Laugh on... I am... at you. :finger3:

    Wasn't it you who was in here bragging about buying a new Harley? Guess that makes you immoral because you spent some cash instead of socking it away. And, you bought it for selfish reasons, so that makes you even more immoral. :wank:

    As much as you like to engage in it, don't be shocked when someone points out that one of your posts is shit!

    So utterly pathetic. You can have a motorcycle if you don't mug someone to get it. This is what you libs do, you focus on what people have to determine their character. It's so simplistic and devoid of moral content. You recognize which camp your socialist outlook falls into, so you reject morality, or pervert it to simplistic envy-based dialectical materialism: property relations rule all, character doesn't matter, there is no free will.

    You extremists just hate it when someone uses your own words against you. I was using the criteria set forth in the very article that PR himself purports can be used to guage morality.

    What I recognized was the fallacy of at least a part of his article. It stated in very clear, simple language that :
    This purely idiotic allegation makes no mention of stealing

    The post is only shit to you! Because it points out very well what you stinking liberals think. The truth hurts. The truth of this post hurts you just like the queer in the other thread, the truth hurts him too.

    And true to liberal form MM, you just waltz in here and declare the article is shit without any contrary debate that's worth a hill of salt. Very nice.

    Get a life.
