Quote – “Why Society is not at Fault” – 6/30/2021

“If to society we claim there is oppression, then we fail to recognize that not just to society, though to personal choice, are such issues apparent. From the claim of societal oppression, those voices become the oppressors. In controlling choice, there is who and what is deemed to be inherently correct or incorrect. However, since it is society for which we have developed, then to its people they must only be personally, not equally, responsible. If a man weeps, then it was only right to do. If a man does not weep, then it was his choice to not do so. To blame society for a man to never weep, is to become the oppressor to a freedom for choice that otherwise creates and recreates the apparent flaws for humanity’s understanding. If we are understanding to how humanity is flawed, then it is never society that is the issue, though ourselves.”

Quote – “Why Respect is Objectively Earned” – 9/21/2020

“Were a person to believe respect as automatic, then they confuse it for love. It is always that a person wishes to be noticed, making them inevitably in yearning for love. Respect, however, is always earned, because were it not, we could respect anyone. We could loosely ‘respect’ the psychopath, and their ways. We could loosely ‘respect’ the pedophile, and their ways. To love any sadist, merely means to utilize criticism that would indeed back the imperfect person from their faults, to a time when they weren’t faulted. In this sense, love turns the imperfection to a perfection.”

A Quote of Wisdom – “Our Failures do not Define Us” – 2/29/2020

“Our success defines us, when we can comprehend that we’ve made it through perseverance, not through neglect. What insane person has injected the notion into a world, that our degradation or our shame, defines us? That, through each blunder or through each fault, we are who we are, because of that? It is wrong to state that, because through such continual comparisons to failure, we become failure. So to speak, we become the walking corpse who refuses criticism, because we’ve epitomized failure. If we were to reverse such a notion, and soon compare ourselves to achievers and successors, we’d embrace the past way of the ‘pupil becoming the master’.”
