Your Morality is Blasphemous to Rationality.

Through-out mankind’s history you have attempted to oppress us with your vision of morality. Every-time the world fell into chaos you cried “No, my code has been broken, that is what has caused this”. You pleaded that your code is a just one but mankind’s nature is not just enough to follow it, that it would be utopia if we would relinquish ourselves for the sake of others; to be selfless. The world has, since the rising of modern society, been in a battle between those who tell us our rights are bestowed of us by God, a matter to be taken on faith, and those who tell us our rights are a gift society, to be changed at their arbitrary whim. Those who told you your right to life, to think and be a moral, rational being, is a matter to be dictated by your master; the all powerful sky-fairy. And those who replace this intellectual slave-holder with another; the collective, who say your purpose of living is to support it. But no one came to defend YOU and your right to YOURSELF, by the means of REASON, to your own ends of the preservation and advancement of your own happiness in a just way that does not conflict with rights of others to what is needed to secure what reason entitles them.

Your morality is the code of non-productivity, if it were not for greed, the very incentive for constructing the systems I am using to communicate with you now, we would still be in the dark-ages, which indeed was a time completely dominated by your so called code of morality. If it were not for lust, the very incentive for the creation of my existence and the capacity to think so to communicate with you now, intelligent life would have never arisen. If it were not for pride, the acknowledgment of ones own self-value and incontrovertible right to happiness, the very incentive that gets you up in the morning, puts nourishment in your belly, has you make plans of the future for your success and progression of your personal well-being, we would be reduced to savagery, unidentifiable from the animals. Only an irrational being would pursue a coarse which is knowingly to them the one of unhappiness. Even those who believe in heaven do what they do on Earth what they think gets them to heaven instead of hell, I do not hear of anyone who thinks doing good will put them in hell and then willingly chooses it. The pursuit of happiness, by the grace of REASON, is THE most basic purpose for a creature capable of feeling it.

I call myself a Neo-Objectivist and distinguish myself apart from conventional Objectivism for a variety of reasons, one of them being what differentiates man from beast. Ayn Rand, the founder of Objectivism, was wrong to say that we are what we are because humans have the ability to choose to end their life and animals do not. I tell you, animals actually will choose death, if they think it will bring them happiness, just as humans will, but what makes humans human is the ability to reason whether it truly will or not. Happiness and suffering, the two fundamental emotions, pleasure and pain, the two fundamental sensations, are evolutionary products to increase the outcome of life over death, but it is not perfect. If you teach an ape that the administration of a certain drug to it’s other ape counter parts will certainly kill them by means of injection and then administer a small amount to the ape, a drug which actually causes extreme satisfaction, then give it a choice to have more, it indeed will choose death, able to reason that the drug will bring happiness but not that once it is dead it will be unable to experience any further happiness. The human-being can, the human has the ability to reason that more happiness can actually be obtained by not taking the drug, which makes much more evolutionary sense than what Ayn Rand described.

You say without God there is no purpose? I say that since we can feel happiness, by REASON, we have a purpose to feel it. Not only will a rational man declare his undeniable right to that pursuit but also the way of which it must be obtained. It must work as a social system, one that allows the most possible FREEDOM, the means of obtaining happiness, to each person as long as they aren’t interfering with the freedom of others so far as that person can use it with the same principle. This means no murder, no theft, no slavery, no rape, no fraud concerning the exchange of property, no reckless endangerment, etc. It is only through the critical and objective deduction of reason that any truth can be found, that purpose or justice can exist, not by the act of God. If it is not to be decided by reason, that would make it unreasonable, which makes it invalid of exercising. You say your God creates reason? Since circular reasoning is impossible that would mean reason could not cause the nature of your God, which would make the God unreasonable and thus invalid of existing and unworthy of any reasonable worship.

The most selfish thing is the independent mind which recognizes no authority higher than it’s own. Selfishness, being defined as the pursuit of the preservation and advancement of ones own happiness, can have no negative outcome if it is pursued in only ways that do not conflict with the same pursuit of another. The two oppositions of this policy are self-denial, willingly causing ones own unhappiness, and social injustice, the despicable imposing of your will upon the that of another. Each of those having no rationally justifiable consequences.

And what it happiness? It is a state of non-contradictory joy, one that does not clash with negative sensation, emotion, or any of your personal values, having been obtained by reason. Not the joy a drunkard but of a producer, not that of escaping reality, but of using your minds fullest power.

  1. good one bro. they like to say that without God there is no purpose to life – but life is what you make of it… it’s sad when people say that. I think it’s a lot better to dedicate your life to real friends rather than an imaginary one who lives up in the sky.

  2. Thank you. Yes, I agree, but I’m curious if there’s anything you disagree with in this blog-post?
