I wrote an article back in February entitled: Fictional: Moral Dilemma Question. You can read it here. Not a real important article, just a question on whether or not killing someone is okay.
This article is about a comment. "I am facing some difficulties about that hypothetical question, i think only experts and highly experienced professional person can give a perfect answer about that particular question."
Sure this comment was left by an advertiser. I mean, I am not stupid. Your name: Rush Essay Review. Are you seriously fooling anyone? But...the big but...The comment struck a nerve in me. First: a perfect answer is subjective, regardless of whom gives it. Second: I loath stupidity, but what I loath more are people thinking they are stupid and that they are not capable of any original thought. It's one thing to be born stupid, it is quite another to believe you are stupid when you are not. (They, whoever they are, have programmed some to believe this. How sad. )
My response to this comment: Why would you think that? Are you as a person not allowed to have your own thoughts or are we to defer to people who went to school longer? What if I told you that you could come to a conclusion whether or not you had a degree, would you believe me?
My thoughts on this crazy trend of deferring to authority: If you can't trust yourself how can you trust someone else? Yes, I wouldn't perform surgery on myself, but I would at least, in the very least, research said surgery, research said surgeon and decide for myself if I needed it.
Trust, but verify.
This is an old Russian Proverb. Why should you trust, but verify? Sometimes people don't know they are lying. Sometimes an untruth has been said for so long that it seems to be the truth. Also, trust yourself, but also check yourself. Sometimes we remember wrong, no harm in a quick double check.
