absolutely evil deeds

can rape be relativized? I often claim that what is at stake is not what one does, but how one does anything. imagine murder of an innocent in order to rob him and a killing of a terrorist. one thing doen differently, one probably immoral, evil, the other moral and good. do we know it for sure? with rape I dare say we know for sure that it is evil. institutionalized rape was used as a tool to subdue black women during the slavery in the us. such act is from its core evil because it stems from a predominantly male desire to use women as a tool, to humiliate them, to indulge ones ego. should we think that rape might be good, we would have to think a situation where someone would do a favour by raping someone else and this is irrational, there cannot be such thing. logically then, there are probably deeds that are totally evil as opposed to deeds that might be done in a good or evil way.

sexist ads

I saw an ad the other day which was about selling a bathroom. in the bath tub there was a very sensual sexy woman making erotic gest toward the viewer. I think that for men this must be very enticing and for women may disgusting. When one thinks about it one must see that this is really a stupid ad. I do not want to sound too prudent but if one uses base instincts to entice usually men to certan good, then such a behaviour is despicable. it is important to educate men to not give in into their feelings but it is equally important to fight this sexist ads.

how to work with evil

we all experience evil within ourselves. we may be believers or not, we may perceive evil differently, through different optics but it is always the one same thing. some work with it, some keep it for themselves. I think that it is important to work with it and not keep it flowing through one. On the other hand it is even more important to realize that evil never leaves me, not until I die. Let us use the evil to do good. let us discern what is evil, which is usually what makes me direct towards my needs, as opposed to good for everyone, bonum commune.

we missed you

we missed you, that is what I saw once i logged into my account after some time. what kind of a lie this is? why should someone who does not know me tell me that it missed me. it was an automatic message in the browser written to everyone logging in. it also said that internet is not the same since you logged out. it is unbeliveably ludicruous. Can someone think that the one was really missed when reading this? maybe only as a pretence to think that someone missed him, but once he thins deeply about this he must see the emptiness beind the selfish shell

what is a waste of time?

I sometimes have arguments with my adolescent sister because she goes so often out just to sit with friends and I see this, in such a frequence as a flappant waste of time. I must also admit that I spend much time in solitude and thus I am not able to objectively say what is a waste of time, because I do not have the need to socialize. Nevertheless I have the urge to call her behaviour stupid and yet know that it may not be stupid. As I always say, it depends on individual conscience. It is important to show her an alternative, but if I keep myself in a state of thinking about people socializing as stupid, then I hurt myself in the same way as she hurts herself by wasting her time.

Silver ring,why not without it?

I heard a bbc edition of witness which was about the catholic movement in the us that gives out silver rings that show that people not living in a marriage, not yet, would not have sex. As a practising catholic I do agree with this idea but I nevertheless think that the fact the one should not use the other one, one partner the other just for sexual pleasure should be a natural instinct as opposed to the menagerie of consumerism we live in today. Society today tells people that postponing sex after marriage, actually any pleasure, is a stupid thing. Young people are very likely to be influenced by such ideas but they also know what is right. I think that the silver ring thing may help but only to steer one onto the right path, one should know that waiting after marriage is a good thing even without the silver ring.

True heroism

A blind man came across when i was thinking about the arrangment of oil and vinegar in my kitchen. I suddenly thought to myself about what is important in this life. Both is important. To think about health and also to think about kitchen arrangement. Nevertheless it is important to not overestimate small things and also to underestimate things that are of Life importance. I also thought that such a man should be a hero for todays young people who give up their life once a small thing does not come in their way. young people today have no heroes. We think of action man with muscles and guns as heroes. This is not heroism in the sense we need today. Today we need to show solidarity and endurance, among other things. Someone who becomes blind and endures the life nevertheless, accomodates to the new conditions is heroism we need today, especially for young people.
