People lament about a lack of common sense. Look around you – we are the fruit of “common sense”. Think about it! Common is broadly understood. Sense is the use of your faculties to reason out real life. Are we doing a good job of that? No, it’s like the concept of democracy (two wolves and a lamb voting on what’s for lunch).
On the other hand, good sense is rooted in eternal principles and laws. Common sense is that a woman has a right to her body, at the expense of her child whom she wants to abort. The baby is victim of the common sense and the propaganda that got us to that position because there were no eternal principles involved in the process or the event.
For those who are blinded by the “My body my choice” mantra, this will never be understood. This piece is not about abortion per se, but about the concept of subjective thought (common sense), and objective thought (good sense). If it feels good, do it is a philosophy which has taken root in America and throughout the world over the last 50 years.
Can we take that philosophy to its ultimate conclusion? Certainly the Jihadist have done that. The promise of 70 virgins in Heaven for having killed some infidels has encouraged thousands to go for the material pleasures (feels good), and so they do it (murder whomever they believe will be a vehicle for them to get to the feel good status).
How can this moronic, mindless, mendacious, amorality meme be overcome? There is but one way, and it is a long established way that at one point in America was well known, but now is lost in the haze of materialism and lying propaganda. The answer is Jesus Christ – repent and believe.
Pensamiento Peligroso writes the truth as he sees it, and if it upsets you, then it makes you think!
