Moral superiority does not really exist

of course it exists.. its the basis of the entire right wing conservative platform.. marriage is only between man and woman, god says so, god created the universe so hes better than you, im on gods side so im better than you, etc.

its not "real" in the sense that its bullshit, but it still exists

yuastnav wrote on Dec 16, 2012, 11:36:
Also, your logic is partly confusing to me.
You claim that everyone is an egomaniac, i.e. that this is the default condition of a human being but you also call that a failing. So it's a failing by definition, i.e. society is actually not supposed to work by working?
And by whose moral standards is it a failing? Yours? The society's?

morals are conditioned responses, man made laws, etc. they vary from culture to culture, from region to region - they are relative to a certain time and place

and yes, society is designed to foster selfishness in a way that keeps the powerful people large and in charge, that is the design that has been passed down through the millienia - now, the details on that would take many pages of writing to explain, and i dont really care to do that right now - but the basic point is to keep people fat and happy, keep them believing in what is now known as "the american dream", which is a farce - but is essentially based on that same "king of the hill" scramble to the top where you step on everything and everyone in your way.. for a great modern example, see: steve jobs

the failure is in terms of viability - long term sustainability - that is where it fails.. 6000 years is really not a long time, in terms of the survival of the species.. and the city-state methodolody is roughly that old.. at the current rate of population increase, consumption, pollution, etc. - it wont last another few hundred years

now, you may disagree with that projection - but no one can prove it one way or the other so it will have to remain a theory

but actually i think the most pressing concern for humanity is the AI singularity - once we design an AI that can upgrade itself much better than we can... thats a big deal IMO, and it could change the whole game in a big way

Wow, that was totally logical and rational. "...something very real and binding should differentiate them from the complete no-name amateurs with zero funding and no prospects" is an opinion, not common sense. That has nothing to do with the basic difference between pro and amateur, and that is not the distinction you were making and you damn well know it.


Yeh thats like saying "purple is a color, and you know it!!"

Of course I know it. Its obvious and goes without saying.

Just saying "thats your opinion!!" is entirely and utterly meaningless. Of course its my opinion. What else would it be? My kingly decree? The law of the land?

Get over yourself.

We love to think we can fix everything but the only real way to do that is through stricter controls and better societal support mechanisms that most people in North America do not want except in these rare post-tragedy moments.

I think it has alot to do with people getting off on being morally superior and righteous. "Im more concerned about other people than you are!" and all that. "Im RIGHT! You're WRONG!" Its a subconscious thing, but its worth mentioning. People are all ego-maniacs, its how society works. Go ahead and deny it if you want, but that just means you cant see your own failings.

If you really want to do something about the "morally corrupt" society we live in, quit talking about how you want to do something and actually DO something. Talk is cheap. SO cheap. Get off the soapbox and put in the effort, instead of spending all your time puffing up like a peacock.

you think the news media is going to avoid sensationalism because "its the right thing to do"? are you fucking kidding? just like they "do the right thing" when it comes to war crimes, politics, imperialism and all the rest?

its about MONEY kids, ratings, hits, likes, attention... whatever gets people to watch gives the networks more potential ad revenue

how many times will this have to happen until people understand that? the answer is that it will keep happening forever, because humanity is unable to move beyond it and get their priorities in order.. it will happen until there is no one left to die anymore, because no one will still be alive

cynical, yes - but accurate according all the data at hand in the past century of broadcast journalism

there is a difference between pro and amateur - thats basic common sense, not an opinion

otherwise they wouldnt be two different words with completely different meanings

yeh i think there should be a limit as well, people who are proven designers with 10+ year careers, who live in million dollar homes, with access to 100 man teams of pro designers - they should have to kick in some matching funds or provide extra contracts, or something... something very real and binding should differentiate them from the complete no-name amateurs with zero funding and no prospects

thats just basic common sense

in fact, i wouldnt be surprised if kickstarter branches out into two different sites, "pro" and "amateur"

people who have years and years of industry experience shouldnt be able to reap the same benefits, they already have a distinct advantage

"We should go boldly where man has not gone before. Fly by the comets, visit asteroids, visit the moon of Mars. There’s a monolith there. A very unusual structure on this potato shaped object that goes around Mars once in seven hours. When people find out about that they’re going to say ‘who put that there? Who put that there?’ The universe put it there. If you choose, God put it there…”

- Buzz Aldrin
