A challenge.
    #1919365 - 09/15/03 09:15 PM (13 years, 2 months ago)

Justify the complete disregard for the wellbeing of anyone but yourself.

Go!

My life is the only life I will ever experience. Why should I care about anyone else unless they do something for me?

I cant justify that thought. It is not fathomable to be how anyone could be that self centered.

I've definately seen people who behave this way. I'd have trouble justifying it to myself, but I think this is related more to my own psychology than to a logical conclusion I've come to.

I really just want to see how well you can defend a position you strongly disagree with.

Who's to say I'm not more important than everyone else?  I could be the most important person in the world, and here I am acting like everyone else is just as important.  What a waste. :tongue:

Oh, that's easy.  Live the life of a chaotic apathetic.  "Disregard the wellbeing of others" doesn't have to mean "hurt others", but if it does, so be it.  I mean c'mon, haven't you ever imagined detonating a nuclear bomb just to see what it looks like?  Or driving on the sidewalk to bypass traffic?  If everyone lived only for themselves, they should be smart enough or aware enough of their surroundings to ensure their survival.


Note:  Not necessarily what I believe.  The tone in this post is solely for the purpose of the argument at hand.  :grin:

I suppose I should've put that disclaimer on my posts too.  I hope no one seriously thinks I actually believe that I'm the most important person in the world.

Justify the complete disregard for the wellbeing of anyone but yourself.

the well being of myself is only kept healthy if i care about the well being of others, but this is ONLY because i care about the well being of myself.

How can I help? Really, if you are the person I think (know) you are, why do you feel this way?

"Justify the complete disregard for the wellbeing of anyone but yourself."

I could tell you, but then I'd get to hurt you


--------------------
Insert an "I think" mentally in front of eveything I say that seems sketchy, because I certainly don't KNOW much. Also; feel free to yell at me.

I am unable to justify this statement. I can not concieve the thought of disregarding the wellbeing of anyone but myself. My family comes to mind first. I would put them before myself in a heart beat. My dad just recently said something to me speaking of himself and my mother, "We are your family. We are your friends. No one likes you more than we do." And he is right. So simple but so true. My one and only true love as well. My companion, my other half. I think of these precious people as much apart of myself as I am. Whether I knew it or not they are embedded into my heart and into my soul. Therefore, their wellbeing means the world to me and always will.

There are no sound arguments, unless you truly believe you're the only real person on the planet and the rest is all figments of your omnipotent mind.

Because I'll die.

No matter what I do, eventually I will die. From dust to dust...

Therefore, any course of action I pursue, be it a selfish life or a life of self-sacrifice, will lead to the same end for me...death.

So, I will pursue a life which maximizes my pleasure while life is still in me. Let others worry about their own welfare.

If I do regard other's wellfare it is because it's more of an investment for my future wellbeing (ie..get the return favor).

Why do you have to believe you're the only real person? Why can't you just believe that you're the only person worth caring about?

Because there is no known knowledge or standard that can be declared
as being more correct than anything else. This absolves me from
allegiance to anything.
