Obviously Jesus was sent to die as a man on earth so that he might meet with the gatekeepers of the afterlife directly so that they could form an agreement on how to further deal with human souls from that point on. It took him three days of dealing before he returned.
Yes, you do have to account for yourself, but the exception is honest naivety.
It is everyone's responsibility, including the victim's, to ensure their own safety in this dangerous world, because ultimately we're all alone here. If you haven't yet realized this very real truth then now would be a great time. If you have a power in this world you also have a responsibility to use it rightly. If you have the power to predict a bad scenario then it is your responsibility to do your best to ensure it never comes about.
This is not a social law. This has nothing to do with society. This is selective pressure coming from the deformed animal within humanity that does indeed make a strong appearance in today's sick society. There is a great separation of those who have too much and those who have too little. Look into Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs if you want some sort of psychological understanding. We act out when we lack!
We are independent individuals: depending on others is a weakness as it places you at their mercy.Not actively protecting yourself when you are aware of being in a dangerous environment is called neglect, and in the end it doesn't matter who's fault it is - you were exposed, attacked and defeated because you live in a fairy tale idealistic illusion that left you a target.
If you were never taught this you can blame your parents for your naievity for they are without a doubt ultimately responsible for your future.
There is so much discussion about who's to blame and none about solving the problem!
Today's world is supported by the 80's generation. What happened to you, 80's generation?
Where is your wisdom and correctness? You justness with righteous reality?
Are you so socialized and drugged that you've forgotten the truth?
I think there's little point in addressing the Slashdot crowd with this question - they seem to be a better, more finely informed group than the greater populace.
The law is not == what is morally right. If you want a truly creative type working for you, find someone who does not consider boundaries so black and white. Test them with moral scenarios and see if you like their answers instead of asking them questions about your own life decisions and casting them aside when they've come to a different, more open minded conclusion.
Just do a random function call in the computer.
Heads, you lose, tails I win.
Actually, none of us are technically 'adults' until the age of 25. The brain has been proven to develop well past the age of our legal adulthood.
What parts of the brain are still "under development"?
"Their prefrontal cortex is not yet fully developed. That's the part of the brain that helps you to inhibit impulses and to plan and organize your behavior to reach a goal."
Here is the link to the talk that quote was taken from:
I personally feel society should reflect the reality of our biological maturity set the legal age of adulthood to end no sooner than 25 and that public education should also extend to this age.
We are approaching a point in history where "the establishment" is playing a serious, dishonest game of "king of the hill", using legal gymnastics and politics to create a social climate that favors maintaining their current power structure and removing anything that threatens them and their outdated technologies that they push like a drug.
Fact of the matter is communism and capitalism work hand in hand really, really well.
Communism is for the services to maintain humanity - medical, legal, housing, food, clothing, education. These things are all the same: staples of life. I for one feel that every man woman and child, that all of the people I encounter daily, should have these. They are the support beams of our society! I do not want me neighbor to have to choose between feeding himself, getting dental work, and wearing clothes without holes.
On the other hand, capitalism is perfect for adventuring into new fields, pushing boundaries. This is for supporting luxurious products. I don't care if my neighbor has a hot tub or not. If he wants that, he should purchase that for himself.
1.7 Trillion. If you have a better source, I welcome it. Much of our military budget is hidden in other budget categories via legalese. I assure you, the corruption runs deep.
That's exactly how I feel here. How dare you expect me to pay this insurance for you? I haven't been to the hospital in years!
If I need something done to me I'm driving to Mexico anyway! Their healthcare is less expensive and higher quality!
THIS. The Supreme Court does nothing but maintain the status quo, only changing its mind later when the status quo fears the alternative: actual rebellion.
Recognize that you are supporting slavery in a minor form by forcing someone to do something preemptively.
I mean it. I don't want you to pay for my hospital bills unless you want to. Hospitals should not be required to provide healthcare.
I will die if I must, but the abolishment of all forms of slavery will indeed be complete.
Give me liberty or give me death. Really, I welcome it.
Our government spends trillions a year killing and maiming men, women and children around the world and doling out funds to their buddies. If they want to get me insured, give me insurance, don't force me to pay for something I can already not afford.
I shouldn't have to sign up for shit.
This shit is so unconstitutional. How dare you fine me for not buying your services.
Money is speech according to the Supreme Court, and so I say no to Obama care.
I'm making use of my first amendment by not giving my money to this system.
We cannot fix the mistakes of the past be reversing them in the present, but by making the playing field level and allowing the balance to solve itself in the coming generations.
Don't fight racism and sexism with reversed racism and sexism, fight it with egalitarianism! Do not try to repair the past, for that in itself is impossible. Just solve the root of the problem and let the effects sort themselves. Do not try to solve each and every improper effect or risk further significant damage to the playing field.
Why would you be doing that? Libertarians are known for wanting to revert to the gold standard. You know, the one originally enshrined in the US Constitution that has long since been disbanded.
President Franklin D. Roosevelt outlawed private gold ownership (except for the purposes of jewelery) in 1933. Think about that. Also, realize the Federal Reserve is a private entity not within nor controlled by the United States Government.
The US Constitution: Article 1, Section 10
"No state shall enter into any treaty, alliance, or confederation; grant letters of marque and reprisal; coin money; emit bills of credit; make anything but gold and silver coin a tender in payment of debts; pass any bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law impairing the obligation of contracts, or grant any title of nobility."
According to the United States Constitution, the Federal Reserve Note is entirely illegal, unconstitutional and void.
