Bouts of Human InsanitySubmitted by Molusk on Sat, 06/14/2014 - 16:00
Ideology is insanity.
Try to follow me.
All of us have ideas. But ideas are a small part of the human soul.
Greater than ideas are people.
Those who recognize this will never do evil for ideas.
When ideas, alone, get the upper hand, you get Ideology.
The willingness to do evil, for ideas.
You may say, this is an idea. True, but it is an idea about ideas, and that idea is that people are greater than ideas.
When humanity at large gets swept up in a fervor of ideas, to the point of willingness to do evil, kill and harm innocents, then it is a bout of human insanity.
This is just a phrase, true. Insanity is a subjective word.
Perhaps humans really are just the tools of destiny, claiming their quarry for the true Master, Ideas.
Then it would be okay to do evil for ideas, if ideas alone were master.
But if ideas are not master, if we owe something to each other as humans, above and beyond the dictates of ideas, then it is high insanity when humans kill other humans merely for ideas.
