    "Free" is a euphemism for what exactly?


    I was some of the mud that got to sit up and look around.

    How do you know you have not contributed to those conflicts?

    It's just fair that I keep my own opinions while conflicts appear. I just need to keep my head, no matter what kind of conflicts I'll have in the future. My self-harm is not nobodies fault but I need to stay true to myself.

    (concerning)

    Not quite sure what you are getting at with this thread. But I'll try to work it through. It seems pretty clear from science that we don't determine the vast majority of our own thoughts--they stem from our subconscious. It's also a given that our learning and experiences often cement our most heartfelt parts of morality to emotions that limit our ability to think rationally. To a large part one of the reasons why some aspects of our society, even though completely irrational and destructive to self or others--such as racism, homophobia etc. are so intractable and only shift through generations if at all. (their strongest supporters die off through natural causes or violence)
