Good thinking for a better life

One of the things we often do when we commit acts of wrongness is discover our errors. If we've never made such an error before, then we may not know any better. So how does our brain work to deal with these hidden error? I would say that what often happens is that we make a thorough analysis of our situation and then draw our conclusions. After our investigation, we then decide to take action.

"Everyone's a genius, but not everyone's a philosopher."

In other words, we simply don't have the capacity for conformance with the more rigorous and philosophical truths of reason and the Absolute. A lot of the great philosophers are heretics or heretics-in-training, they're being critical thinkers, but we're too lazy to apply our critical thinking to their mistakes.

When we make our decisions, we should always consider the consequences that our actions will have. If something is very important to you, you will probably worry a lot about how the consequences will affect you, not so much what your action might do to another person. You'll probably ask yourself all kinds of questions, including: Are we hurting someone? Is someone hurt by what we did? What is the impact of this on my future?

Most people have a tendency to have a short memory, so they may remember an argument, but never remember the conclusions of the argument. They remember a sentiment, not the argument. They remember action, not outcome. They remember a brief lapse in attention, not what they were doing while they forgot. These kinds of tics are an enormous distraction to those on the receiving end.

I believe it's better to confess our errors first and offer an explanation when appropriate. So, perhaps we should first admit that this is not a valid evolutionary model for how the human mind works. Why is this claim useful? It helps us to understand our shortcomings. Without admitting our error we run the risk of being self-sabotaging. By being aware of our error and offering an adequate reason we can practice humility.

Take an opportunity to learn from one another. Learning from each other prevents us from repeating our errors. Try to remain honest. This is because of the human tendency to tell lies (by lying about what we know to be true) and the human tendency to cover up those lies (by not being honest enough about them). Both tendencies can lead to perversions of justice. Learn to distinguish between our needs and our partner's needs. Usually our partner wants the things that we need. In these instances.

That's why the Duty to Act ethic is vitally important. Sure, if we do nothing we can pick the laws we like and shirk responsibility for the consequences. But to do this is to enable the behavior and those who support it. In practice, inaction by individuals invites those who do harm to continue and encourages those who do nothing to continue to justify or excuse their immoral actions. In almost every Western culture, there is a moral/ethically important moral duty to act and a similar moral duty to speak.
