Obsession with freedom Anonymous 20/02/09(Sun)14:55 No. 14401 ID: 7d5109

>George Washington joined the Masonic Lodge in Fredericksburg, Virginia, at the age of twenty in 1752. During the War for Independence, General Washington attended Masonic celebrations and religious observances in several states. He also supported Masonic lodges that formed within army regiments.
>Such was Washington’s character, that from almost the day he took his Masonic obligations until his death, he became the same man in private that he was in public. In Masonic terms, he remained “a just and upright Mason.” Brother Washington was, in Masonic terms, a “living stone” who became the cornerstone of American civilization.

The American Constitution is the founding document that supposedly promotes freedom for individuals regardless of creed or religion but when you look at who wrote this document it becomes fairly obvious that all this is a mere reflection of slave owning anarchists that refused to obey others. It stipulates that people have a right to bare arms and own land but with what justification? The constitutional rights espoused in the U.S.A seem to be nothing more than the extension of self-righteous egotism that in the modern day society results in mass shootings and exploitation of other people. It's not about building a functional society, it's about protecting oneself from everything that goes against your own interests.

Have you ever read Lord of the Flies? That book is a good example as to why freedom that is granted to those that can't handle it always ends in tragedy. You don't even need to read that book, you could always take a look at the cruelty of children in general.


Children act on impulses without hesitation and you can call this unfettered behaviour a true free will. It doesn't abide to anything besides self-gratification and the preservation of its own interests.

Anonymous 22/08/07(Sun)03:16 No. 15080 ID: dc1af3

Actually, that book was about what happens when a great reset happens. People use Lord Of The Flies as a reason to disqualify children from having basic rights.
Adults more or less do the same exact things, yet they're given freedom.

Again, I find it interesting that adults project the dark side of human nature onto children when adults are far more unfettered in self interest.

Adults don't know either. They pretend like they do.

Children in their earliest years have no discernment of what is good or bad. They act out of will alone and in accordance with what catches their attention. When they progress from the infancy and toddler stage they still haven't matured enough to be considered as fully aware of what their actions mean or what they mean to others. That's why it is impossible to diagnose children with sociopathic behaviour since you are not able to distinguish deviant, evil actions from childlike ignorance. A child that, for example, play rough with a kitten and kill it in the process could have intentions of actually causing harm to it or simply be unaware how to handle fragile little animals.
Keep in mind that if you tell the child (when it has killed an animal) that harming other creatures is wrong, it might start to cry, not because it feels sorry or have any remorse, but because it didn't get to do as it pleases or that it find angry adults scary because they encroach on its preferred course of action.

Anonymous 22/08/08(Mon)04:14 No. 15086 ID: 44e8de

Your last sentence is wrong. Kids do get upset about animals dying.
I mean, how many kids cry about pets dying?
Children aren't primal unconscious.
I can understand immature, but you trying to deny them any bit of humanity is disgusting.

They say the same about dogs. They say dogs don't really reciprocate feelings they just only respond to stimuli.
They also say dogs and cats and other animals in infancy are primal unconscious.

>Last weekend my four-year-old daughter accidentally squeezed her pet rat to death. It was still a baby. I know that supervision is the answer for future contact with the rest of our pets, but I want to know how to deal with the fact that she actually killed something, even though it was (I hope) an accident. She knew something was wrong when she locked herself in the bathroom with it. My husband dealt with it by yelling at her and demanding he tell her what she had done. I, on the other hand, held her on my lap and told her I understood it was an accident and that she didn't mean to hurt her baby. Did I do the right thing? I don't believe that taking all her other pets away from her is the solution.

Notice how the girl locks herself in the bathroom with the deceased animal. She doesn't run to her mother crying but instead try to delay her punishment by hiding with the evidence. Children that age do not really grasp concepts like death in a way that make them feel remorse.

Anonymous 22/08/08(Mon)18:46 No. 15088 ID: 44e8de

She probably has regrets about killing the pet on accident and still fears punishment.

Kids have a strong fear of punishment, regardless of conscience or not.

Kids are not all the same where they must explosively show their feelings.
Adults assume external affect as mandatory trait for youth.

Anonymous 22/08/08(Mon)20:55 No. 15089 ID: 7d5109

The problem with your point of view is that children in general do not have any inhibitions when it comes to feelings and judging by the fact that the mother can't tell if it's an accident or not shows that the daughter displayed no real anxiety or qualms about killing a defenseless baby rat. I hate to break it to you but if you have ever been around children there is no doubt that they will cry over just about anything, like not wanting to put on clothes or if a toy is taken away from them. Unfortunately, the child you imagine in your head is probably a work of fiction.

Anonymous 22/08/09(Tue)03:38 No. 15090 ID: 44e8de

No, they're not fictional. Again, not all kids are external affect. Kids can be overcome with emotion to the point of paralyzed affect.

Also, there's neurodivergent ones. There's babies that don't cry at birth.

Ironic how you can't really tell if there is such a thing as real innocence in children. People can ascribe various traits to infants but in reality maturity is something that can't be universal at such a young age where ethical behaviour is absent. I've seen multiple children hit their siblings out of frustration which means that there is an immanent violence impulse that is beyond rationality.

Anonymous 22/08/25(Thu)05:48 No. 15099 ID: 57bad6

Innocence is a guilt trip made up by adults to strawman children with.
As for the rest of your post, its Captain Obvious.

But, what is interesting is the idea of maturity. What is maturity really?
We often use children as the antithesis of maturity yet, the same behaviors we ascribe to children are common in adulthood.
Do not paremts and teachers hit kids out of frustration?
Do not adults lie, cheat,steal, and argue?
When children make mistakes, we call it immaturity.
But when adults make mistakes, we call it "being human."

Anonymous 22/08/25(Thu)09:15 No. 15101 ID: 6a7e92

Leftists think that the environment shape people into becoming evil but the truth is that children to a large extent display quite a self-important worldview where no one but themselves matter. Egotistical individualism is at the root of being infantile and without remorse.

>Children are selfish. We’re all born pooping and crying and not being bothered if others have to run around doing things for us. That’s normal in the first stage of life.
>When we’re very young, we’re not intellectually capable of seeing the world from a different point of view.

As for "intellectually incapable" I doubt that. Its more that adults dont really engage children at all as individuals.

"Dont call kids selfish bcuz well they are selfish". Its kinda self defeating dontcha think?

Also, why do people call babies crying selfish?
They cannot communicate with words so they have to use whatever God gave them.
If its excessive wailing its one thing.
But if theyre reallt hungry, they need to feed or else they die.
Again, Im not saying that kids arent selfish but society seems to like using the flaws pf children as the definition of defection while ignoring the same flaws in adults.

People with inflated self-importance is what could be called manchildren. You see these maladjusted individuals scream about how harsh their lives are, how their needs are way more worthy of attention than others or how they should be granted more money, leisure or happiness. They never really grow up and they perpetuate this mentally deficient adolescence by telling their own children that the only thing that matters in this world is seeking your own fortune.
Children that disregard others as insignificant or beneath themselves are the kind of people that strive for high-paying jobs and always seem to assume that you need to be put on a pedestal in order to amount to anything in life.
