You Folks Just Don't Get It, Do You?
The Sons of God and the sons of man...
Cognitive Dissonance (conflict of ideologies) = Forced-Reconciliation of core-belief structure.
When ideologies and belief systems are reconciled, anger, violence, apathy or action, positive or negative may result.
When this filters down to social class and cultures, meanings can change and often do.
This gives-rise to subcultures which accommodate what's missing in society.
When you consider the Laws of God and the sometimes counter-intuitive statutory laws of man, you start to see the bigger-picture. Perhaps this is the
mark of the beast? Or alluding to one of many circumstances where cognitive dissonance plays a part in perpetuating a system which emphasizes
placing a fiat value on people as an object. Who can define the net-worth of a human being?
I can't. And I won't. There's no executive order which could even try to do this and it's not right to do it anyway, so why even try?
What's missing in today's equation is the moral, spiritual, and ethical reasoning which promotes critical thinking to the point where it is
automatically presumed that an individual is responsible for their own actions. And those actions should not need to be regulated by state or
government. This is a slippery slope toward socialism, where all individual freedoms are taken-away when people do not have a common-moral center as
a single populace. And when they have the common-moral center but do not exercise it. Apathetic. Apostasy. It's just not there. Too many social
Race plays a part in this as well. Let's not forget we are the Human race, not individual races within a label. Our birthright is there, it's stated
plainly in the oldest Prime Source around. All of the ancient laws seem to support this too. But those statutory laws of man always seem to push the
limits of common law which is based-on Canon Law.
Is it too much to ask for all mankind to have true individual freedom, being responsible, and respecting and appreciating the pursuit of life,
liberty, and happiness?
Here's one cognitive dissonance in-example quote:
Thou Shalt Not Kill
as opposed to:
Capital Punishment Death Sentences
Statutory Law in some states or countries
Abortion laws and how individual freedom conflicts with Canon Law...it's a slippery-slope without knowing logical formalities in using a valid
argument. This needs to be taught at all ages.
Using reason and compassion without conflict is possible...
