Human child

Isn't the root of all evil hurting another person? You can do as you like with your life, but when you do as you like with another person's life, then all hell breaks loose. And this begins at parenthood. You decide where and how your child is being brought up and hence sow the seeds of all evil. What's to stop you from torturing or killing your child? Nothing. The human child is the most unprotected living creature. Animals will not kill their young unless they are compelled to do so by unavoidable circumstances. But humans can and will kill if they choose to, since they are not governed by instinct and can rise above it.

Animals breed in plenty - many die, some survive, depending on external conditions. The same is the case with humans. If we ensure that external conditions are just right before humans are born, then we can end the unnecessary deaths. And not die like animals.

Thoughts - III

Feel like life has passed me by. I am so different from what I used to be, or so I think. But my convictions about the world still stand. It always boils down to money.

The people I feel I should stay away from always prove it to me in time. That I should have stayed away from them. My sense of human dignity is wavering. I don't have the same strong sense of dignity of a human being that I used to have. It's all because of the place where I work, where people don't have any sense of dignity themselves nor do they treat others with any sense of dignity. Life is so much more than 1+1=2, and unless that dawns on them someday they cannot even begin to comprehend the value of a human being.

I've always had the courage to stand up for what I thought or believed in. I hope I will continue to have that courage.
