TRUE IN MY MIND: HOW THE MIND EVOLVED TO MAKE US THINK ALL FEELINGS MEAN SOMETHING

“It was put there, must mean something.”


INTRODUCTION

We all have feelings, that is not ground breaking to hear, but what about the meaning behind the feeling. Just because we as humans have evolved to have a feeling does not always mean it should have a purpose in society. There are so many feelings that we have as people that should not present themselves in life. And you would think I was talking about the crimes that some people commit. No, I’m referring to how we view the world around us. No one wants to think that how they feel means nothing, so we all have our individual ways.

PROCESS OF ELIMINATION

The way in which we sustain a civilization is being able to decipher what feelings in our society mean something. Because feelings are one thing, but there need to be a logical view on how the world should operate. Because feelings change on a daily, but there need to be something more resolute in the way we live. Meaning, if we create laws that will benefit the masses, it is intended to be a rational decision. If feelings come into play, then what you will have is an emotional society, which causes chaos. So you start with the most important aspects of life, then scale back from there.

WHY WE HAVE THEM?

A potential reason why we have feelings is to make us compassionate toward our own species for our survival. We have more respect and love when it’s toward something we see ourselves apart of in life. So we see another human hurt it brings about this humanity. And from that humanity we help because then again, we would like someone to do it for us. These feelings we have are real, not saying they aren’t, but were we given them to hold against each other in society, or was it something else. Because as much as I said before about them having meaning, we need them. We need compassion, but too much feeling ruin a civilization. Which is why I think America could be in trouble because everyone’s feelings must be taken into consideration. And if that’s the case, with 323 million people, you are bringing into the consideration a skewed view as well.

GOVERNING SENTIMENT: WHY LEGISLATING FEELINGS IS DANGEROUS FOR AMERICA

Image result for US CONGRESS

“I feel therefore it should mean something.”


In the United States today, we are constantly in these debates on what you can and cannot say. No matter if it’s in a public space or in private; we tend to disagree with the language. But are we just attacking the language, or is it something more? I have come to the conclusion that it’s not the language per se, it’s more so the sentiment. And then we get into the debate in how one should feel in regards to dealing with other people in society. But you can’t have a country where there is a governing of sentiment. Because whose to say how you feel is the right way when feelings can be so ambiguous.

I posted a recent article pertaining to the differences and similarities between former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick and political commentator/author Anne Coulter. How sentiment forced both of them to be locked out of career opportunities because of their stance. Only difference is that Colin was employed on a team and Anne is self-employed. But neither one of them broke any laws. And both were compliant with how they expressed themselves; staying in alliance with their first amendment rights. But the actions of people and how they felt is what effected Colin and Anne. Although people might argue against my point on why Anne said what she said, Colin did what he did, it doesn’t matter. The right to take an action that is within the law was infringed upon.

But what about people in our society. We are so dishonest on how we really feel, and we also are quite selective in what makes us upset. Someone on the left and the right will say their rights are under attack. Yet they are willing to stand in the way of each other’s rights because of how it makes the person/people feel. My real reasons why people are so willing to go against what they feel is wrong is because of how they look at their own lives. The less satisfied you are with your own life, the more willing you are to infringe upon someone else’s life. Anything so someone knows what it’s like to be you. Also, the changes in people’s lives creates a moment to moment sentiment. Which is a main reason why legislating feelings can cause so many problems. Laws are supposed to be resolute, and changed only under drastic measures. The following examples is why you can’t govern sentiment.

I am a Conservative Christian, who believes Gay marriage is wrong. Allowing Gays to marry goes against my Christian beliefs. So therefore we should legislate against Gays ability to get married. Gays state that this is wrong to legislate for this person/people because of the sentiment under a belief that is based around faith, not fact. But here is a flip side example. I am a Liberal Gay man, and the fact that you would say Gay marriage is wrong, you should lose your job. Now anti-gay sentiment is not illegal, but you should lose your job from the sentiment alone. Both examples at the top is why government can’t legislate feelings. Because in the end, whose to say how you feel is always right. As a matter of fact, it might be just as dangerous. Another main reason the government shouldn’t legislate feelings is because feelings shift so much. Law should be more resolute, and not constantly changing. So for now, as it pertains to discussion, everything is on the table.
