The “Feel-Good” Pleasure-Trap Focus

Everyone wants to enjoy life, to engage in pleasure fulfillment of various kinds. All people are distracted by the pleasure trap. But many people focus mostly on enjoyment and put other things second, like morality. There is a pleasure-trap of “feel-good” comfort that is desired as an inner state to be attained and sought after, as “well-being” is highly desired. […]

The Infatuation with “Positivity” and Doing “Good”

Much of my work focuses on the negative. Why? Because people are already focused and infatuated on the positives (positivity) at the expense of ignoring the negative (as if looking and learning about the negatives is negativity).

Understanding What is Right, Good, and Moral is Our Responsibility

Many people think they are “good” no matter what they do. Slavers thousands of years ago, centuries ago, and to this day, thought and think of themselves as “good”. sourceHitler and Stalin thought of themselves as “good” and doing what was “right”. Simply thinking something is so, doesn’t make it so. We all have a responsibility to objectively understand how […]
