Let’s get into some philosophy, yah? I kinda feel like tackling arguably THE ultimate question of human existence. Here it is:
Is man good or bad?
This topic has been the subject of intense debate throughout the centuries (2 of the most notable dissenters beings Thomas Hobbes and Jean-Jacques Rousseau) and has been a driving question in how we form governments, make laws, motivate individuals, punish criminals, etc.
It may be tempting to paint humanity as a loving bunch, and it’s true that there have been some incredible individuals throughout history who have treated others with kindness and compassion. But it would be utterly naive to deny the wickedness that man is capable of as well. Mass murders and perpetrators of violence and gross injustice demonstrate “the evil that men do” (to quote Shakespeare’s “Julius Caesar”).
Maroon 5 have always been a bunch of dirtbags, but their newest song “Animals” hits a new low with its strong implications of sexual violence. A lot of the same stuff as “Blurred Lines” going on.
“Baby, I’m preying on you tonight
Hunt you down, eat you alive…
I cut you out entirely
We’re just like animals.”
(and some other obscene lyrics)
THIS is the war on women.
A bunch of libertine, misogynistic, sex-obsessed men who themselves admit they are animals.
PS: Adam Levine is soooooo disgusting. His tattoos are hideous, he sounds like a dying chipmunk when he sings, and he repeatedly puts out crap material.
When I want some maroon in my life, I go for something like this!
As long as you’re doing it for the right reason(s), never be afraid to be unpopular.
The truth will always be opposed, and you’re in fantastic company.
“If God be for us, who can be against us?”
PS: I’m not comparing myself to Christ! 🙂
“So many people today are waiting for their golden ticket—the ticket that they believe holds the key to the happiness they have always dreamed about. In their anxiousness, some begin to forget the simple joy they used to find in a candy bar. …The problem comes when we put our happiness on hold as we wait for some future event—our golden ticket—to appear….Don’t wait for your golden ticket. Forget not to be happy now.”
( Dieter Uchtdorf)
“Don’t wait for marriage to start your life. Please don’t wish away this season just because it doesn’t look the way you thought it would. You don’t have to wait for a partner to invest in your space, in yourself, in your life.”
Yes, yes, and YES!
“And this is not to say,
I won’t settle down one day.”
“The only thing worse than being blind is having sight, but no vision.”
“Vision without technique is blind.”
-Dewitt Jones (photographer for National Geographic)
“Where there is no vision, the people perish.”
“We are not obedient because we are blind; we are obedient because we can see.”
-Boyd Packer (of the Quorum of the 12 of TCOJCOLDS)
“You say you’ll give me eyes in a moon of blindness.”
I went from blindness to sight
From darkness to light!
