Is Our Moral Compass Broken?
Within the mind of man, the control panel, that makes our living movements possible, is a top-secret room that is formidably hidden within the evolved structure of our biology and existential reality.
History has shown that there are, several, operating tools that can be used to move the mass mind of our species. And by the use, of these tools, it has brought us remarkably close to entering that most sacred and ancient room by sound reason and through retarded stumbling.
The nature of ethics is to be the compass through which humans find morality. The issue is that many of the systems that provide this compass are old. Not old and valuable, but rather old and outdated.
It is no wonder that there is so much pain in this world. We let our unhealthy bodies, our young abused minds, and scared imprisoned emotions govern the world. We speak to each other from this place and we treat each other from the experience that we live in.
We create powerful tools to communicate but still don’t get any better at transmitting our love. We are experts at transferring our insecurities and feelings of insignificance and projecting them onto others and making it their fault. We take no accountability for our actions and then find other humans to take the blame.
Is there a solution? Do we want one?
