    #innate morality    #dostoyevsky    #the brothers karamazov   
    Thirdly it's an attack on I think what's also important to us our innate morality...they say where would your morals come from if there was no god... The wicked one says it, if god is dead isn't everything permitted? isn't everything permissible. Where would our ethics be if wasn't a super intending deity. dostoyevsky the brothers karamazov

    #north korea    #fear of freedom   
    But I don't understand why do you say that these people really want to be enslaved...I mean, north korea is a hermetic place unfortunately in that it has ocean on either side of it&59; the Demilitarized Zone which is several miles wide on the south and Russia and China on the north. fear of freedom

    #innate morality    #motivated by faith   
    It's difficult to choose the life where you actually deciding and making choices for yourself and taking responsibility ... how could we possibly imagine a world where people buys into that idea... where would that structure that some people feel they can't do without. Where would religion be replaced by to fill this natural need. innate morality motivated by faith
