Reason – Blog No. 28

reasonHow are people taught to reason?  Does it come naturally, or is it learned?  Is reason a by-product of philosophy’s tendency to bounce around the word ‘therefore’ when coming to its conclusions?  Reason can complicate matters.  It is an important skill, but employ it wisely.  Do not discount those things you cannot rationally – reasonably – explain.  Not knowing the how or why of something is no reason to disregard it.  In good time everything comes clear – if something does not make sense immediately, trust that it will.  Being capable of understanding is more valuable than being able to reason.  Reason can divert one’s attention from the truth and diverted attention is called not concentrating.  It is vital to concentrate when searching for the truth.

You react because another acts towards you in a certain way.  For instance, the reason a person shoots dead an intruder is because the intruder is trespassing.  That is not reason enough.  The reason a person assassinates another’s character is because they have low self-esteem.  That is not reason enough.  You cannot always excuse an action because there is a reason behind it.  The reason for a genocide is a hatred.  A fear.  Those reasons are never reason enough.

Giving valid reasons for your actions makes sense if you feel the need to explain yourself to other people.  Some people feel that need.  Some people feel the need to make others explain themselves.  Who is anyone to make another person explain themselves?  That need that people have, makes me smile.  Like policemen they stand, demanding disclosure.  You cannot force disclosure if you want the truth.  Ask nicely and you might get an explanation, which is better than being given a reason.  However.  Give reasons if you feel you need to.  Be sure they explain themselves.  It is not to say that the reasons you give will be met with approval, but give them anyway.  They open dialogue.

  1. Warped power of reasoning leads political righteous orders to believe, it is us or them so we need to destroy them any and every way we can and make them our slaves. Warped power of reasoning dismiss the mass of gray matter in between when they slander and attack liberal media for freedom of speech in stead of questioning the facts. Raise the Flag: Lean Thy Arms is a book with six stories about a perilous journey reaching for education and overcoming duress and adversity because this author proves he is not guilty so he pays to publish this book when he wins a judgement against corrupt cops, who beat him like a slave and they do not have cause for arrest so they make up false charges, false reports, and false testimonies against him and try to bury him in prison for living hell. Read book, Raise the Flag: Lean Thy Arms and see for yourself how education prevails.
