Because life shouldn't be about needing to do evil
I believe in a spiritual reality and so if it gets that bad I'm fine starving while being honorable
This world is a middle ground or testing ground. A place to grow and gain, or to fail and lose at a spiritual level.
We get purpose here, identity, wishes and regrets.
Surviving as a monster is failure.
I used to be an atheist til only 2 years ago. I realized Socrates and Descartes' logic is more sound than anything.
I opposed belief through faith of books. I approve of faith through logic.
If there was once only nothingness, then there would still be only nothingness. Since we have things, things always have been. Matter, spirit, soul, and the inevitable godhood.
That's how we end up with free will in a world of chaos and impermanence. But this is merely a plane. The original world of thought and spirit is more true.
This is thus comparatively a nightmare, but there is a darker nightmare we would call hell.

In my Signature in some Forum I put:

I've got a soldier to share today
My Dad's Grandfather
```Staff Sergeant William H. Savier of the 53rd Armored Infantry Battalion, U.S. Army.
Enlisted on 03/17/43 and served until 10/26/45 and despite years of insisting he spent his military career on K.P. Duty, he also participated in battle campaigns in Northern France, Rhineland and Ardennes.
A POW he was awarded, amongst other commendations, multiple Purple Hearts, the Distinguished Unit Citation, the Good Conduct Medal, the European African Middle Eastern Service Ribbon, the Combat Infantry Badge and the Bronze Star. ```
We've kept those medals, and his ceremonial sword is something I keep close track of and sometime soon I'll try and get professionally cleaned up, it's a little worn
You know I was looking at a baby and for a long time I used to think that babies have near infinite potential but now I dont think that people are just products of their iq and environment.
If someone is born poor and high iq they can move up
If they are born rich and low iq they will most likely drop in social stature
If poor and stupid they will do nothing
If rich and intelligent they can rule the world
Is that a bad thing though?
Is it wrong that the choices if your ancestors come to fruition in you
America is one of if the only countries in the world that a poor person with a good idea can be more
Only if that poor person as a child gets adequate nutrition and basic schooling
Poor nutrition starves the brain. Kills potential before it can blossom..
I dont know if thats how potential works
From what ive heard you cant go up
Except through learning a new language and playing an instrument
The brain is part of the body. If children don't have proper nutrition, thier brains will be stunted. It's really sad. That's why we have SNAP and school lunches.
We stopped physical evolution
Do we want to stop mental evolution by keeping stupid people alive
Do we really want to handicap our species like that?
But you could have a genius who never manifests because you don't feed him well as a child
Or if he gets sick and dies before he can do wonders
My point is we need to invest in all kids so that they can match thier potential
If we don't, other countries will and we will be poorer for it
I will invest in my kids others can do the same if they want
