How To Become a Better Human...maybe!?

How does one become a better human?
It's a rare circumstance when we can for see all the potential fallout of our actions. This ability to see the likelihood for harming oneself, or others, improves as one's intelligence and experience increases, but for the most part, all-knowing wisdom for every possible scenario is beyond most people's reach. In order to assist us with making decisions that can have negative outcomes, it is necessary to abide by 'rules' that are formulated upon historical lessons learned so that we can protect ourselves from repeating the same blind mistakes. Being a better human attempts to leverage the lessons of history and as such I've formulated a diverse list of 'tenets' that endeavor to accomplish the following goals:

*Devaluing of the ego/greed instincts in to liberate us from their shackles.
*Increasing the value of mutual respect and self-fulfillment.
*Oppression of tyranny and intentional misinformation, in all forms.
*The pursuit of truth and altruistic morality.

At first glance, it may seem that some of these tenets are unduly oppressive, as equally oppressing as when your parents wouldn't allow you a certain freedom when you were young, but like your parents, this oppression is with your best interests at heart. For example, as a child you may have wanted to go play by a river, but you were too inexperienced to recognize the risks associated with the river's strong currents and the chance that you might fall in. Despite your begging and pleading, your parents would not allow you to take such a risk. Such is a parent's thankless role.

It's very hard to sell people on the notion that even into adulthood, they still 'need' to be parented into acceptable behaviours and thought patterns, but the simple fact is that every society does exactly that, and necessarily so. Quite often most people truly don't know what's best for themselves or others which is why we have the universal concept of 'laws'.

The attempt to lawfully coerce people against their less-than-noble or blindly reckless pursuits will of course agitate some egos(the more selfish the person's mindset, the more pronounced this agitation will seem to them), but that is an unavoidable consequence of the 'necessity' of the governing body to sufficiently suppress our intrinsic anarchistic instincts such that we all can enjoy the benefits of a harmonious civilization, without allowing the possibility for the selfish few to ruin it for the rest of us. Laws are the 'adult' version of parenting. We continue to grow throughout life, but we'll always need guidance from a more experienced sage, that is the role of the governing body, to keep its children from harm.

These tenets attempt to 'mold' a well- adjusted, intelligent, happy and contributing member of society, instead of letting raw instincts guide their development. These tenets are 'principles' and are not meant to be laws, at least not until such time that we are capable as a whole of recognizing their value, and have the ability to altruistically enact these tenets as laws, which is most certainly very far off into the future. The tenets in their current incarnation are no more than suggestions for a mindset that could resurrect and protect us from our oblivious willful enslavement to the rigors of religions, indentured servitude, meme-virus propaganda, and the many obsolete pursuits that our primitive instincts can sometimes lead us into.

It may not be apparent, but the tentacles of eons-old religious and economic tyranny run very deep into all facets of our lives, and perhaps some of these tenets may appear obscure, subjective, or even random at first glance, but with deeper inspection, you'll discover that they reach down very far after those tentacles of tyranny to try to rout them out.

I believe these tenets address the entire scope of the cure to the mind virus of religion, and other forms of tyranny, and sets the stage for the right to happiness for 'all'. Your reaction to some tenets may be powerful, but before you consolidate an opinion on the merits of any given tenet. Please understand that I'm not attempting to oppress religious 'people', I'm trying to oppress 'religion' and there is a difference; that being I wish to free people from the shackles of religion , not condemn them for it.

Philosophy is a very nebulous subject matter, full of assumptions and opinions, so I've utilized a growing list of fundamental tenets:

1. EVERYONE HAS THE RIGHT TO PURSUE HAPPINESS AS THEY PERSONALLY DEFINE IT, BUT ONLY IF THIS PURSUIT DOES NOT NEGATIVELY AFFECT ANYONE, INCLUDING THEMSELVES.

2. THE NOBLEST PURPOSE IN LIFE IS TO MAKE YOURSELF HAPPY.

3. THE INTELLIGENT PLACATION OF THE VARIOUS INSTINCTUAL DEMANDS OF YOUR MIND WILL DETERMINE THE MOST ACCURATE PATH FOR YOU TO ACHIEVE PERSONAL HAPPINESS.

4. WE ARE ALL EQUALLY WORTHLESS IN THE BIG PICTURE OF THE UNIVERSE.

5. IN YOUR LIFE, YOU ARE THE SINGLE MOST IMPORTANT PERSON THERE IS.

6. THE INSTINCTS OF EGO AND GREED CAN BOTH PROVIDE POWERFUL REWARDS, BUT CAN ALSO CAUSE THE MOST DAMAGE TO YOURSELF AND OTHERS. CONTROL OF THESE INSTINCTS IS FOREMOST CHALLENGE.

7. CONTENTMENT IS NOT REACHED THROUGH ACCOMPLISHMENT OR ACQUISITION; IT IS A STATE OF MIND.

8. ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR WHO YOU ARE, WHAT YOU DO, AND WHO YOU BECOME.

9. ANGER IS A VERY DESTRUCTIVE AND INEFFICIENT INSTINCT. THE PHENOMENAL ENERGY IT PRODUCES MUST BE CHANNELED INTO HARMLESS OUTLETS, INSTEAD OF FULFILLING AN OBSOLETE AND SIMPLE-MINDED ACT OF EQUAL REVENGE. RETRIBUTION OR APOLOGY SHOULD ONLY BE ENACTED WITH THE GOALS OF RECUPERATION AND PREVENTION, NOT TO INFLICT RECIPROCAL DAMAGE.

10. LIFE SHOULD CONTAIN A PERPETUAL SERIES OF CHALLENGES THAT ENLIGHTEN OR STRENGTHEN.

11. A HEALTHY SLEEP, DIET AND EXERCISE SERVES AS THE FOUNDATION FOR A HEALTHY MENTAL DISPOSITION.

12. OUR SENSE OF MORALITY IS MOST FUNDAMENTALLY FOUNDED IN THE SOCIAL INSTINCTS, BUT NEEDS TO BE REFINED THROUGH EDUCATION IN ORDER TO BALANCE THOSE INSTINCTS IN A MANNER MOST CONDUCIVE TO LARGE-SCALE SOCIAL HARMONY. THE MORALITY OF ANY GIVEN THOUGHT OR ACTION SHOULD ONLY BE JUDGED BY ITS POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE IMPACT ON OTHERS.

13. HONESTY, EMPATHY, PATIENCE, TOLERANCE AND PERPETUAL RESPECT MUST BE THE FOUNDATION FOR ANY INTROSPECTION OR WHEN COMMUNICATING WITH OTHERS. SLANDER, JEALOUSY, HATE, EMOTION OR FEAR-BASED DENIAL OF SCIENTIFICALLY- ESTABLISHED INFORMATION, IGNORANCE-BORNE OPPRESSION, DENOUNCING WITHOUT UNDERSTANDING AND OSTRACISM FOUNDED IN CRUELTY, ARE ALL INTOLERABLE.

14. SEXUAL ACTIVITY IS ACCEPTABLE IN ALL FORMS THAT DO NOT DIRECTLY IMPINGE UPON THE RESPECT OR HAPPINESS OF OTHERS, AND ALWAYS REQUIRES ANOTHER'S MATURE CONSENT TO PARTICIPATE.

15. ABORTION IS A DECISION ONLY THE PARENTS CAN MAKE.

16. DEATH IS INEVITABLE AND FOREVER. NO EXCEPTIONS

17. WHEN ONE REACHES A POINT IN THEIR LIFE WHERE IT IS PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE FOR ANY FURTHER QUALITY OF LIFE, AS IN OLD AGE, OR DISEASE, IT IS WITHIN THE RIGHT OF THAT INDIVIDUAL TO REQUEST AND RECEIVE THE MEANS FOR DEATH (INCLUDING EUTHANASIA) TO OCCUR.

18. WE MUST TAKE RESPONSIBILITY FOR HOW WE PSYCHOLOGICALLY EVOLVE, MEANING THAT WE MUST CULTIVATE SOCIETY-BENEFITING BEHAVIOURS THAT WILL EVENTUALLY BECOME INSTINCTUAL OVER MANY GENERATIONS.

19. EDUCATION SHOULD BE GLOBALLY UBIQUITOUS AND HOMOGENOUS, NOT ONLY TEACHING THE SCIENCES, MATHS, AND ARTS, BUT ALSO REALITY PERSPECTIVE, INTROSPECTION, SELF-IMPROVEMENT, INTERPERSONAL, AND INCREDULITY SKILLS.

20. THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN ABSOLUTE FACT.

21. ALL FORMS OF ETHEREAL BELIEF ORGANIZATIONS MUST BE LEGALLY OPPRESSED SO AS TO AVOID HAVING THESE CONCEPTS ESCAPE THE CATEGORY OF MYTHOLOGY. MANDATORY REALITY EDUCATION WILL ALSO HELP TO PREVENT THE MANIFESTATION OF RELIGIONS.

22. FREEDOM OF SPEECH NEEDS TO BE UNDERSTOOD FOR WHAT IT REALLY, AND CURRENTLY IS: A PRIVILEGE INSTEAD OF A RIGHT. MODERN CENSORSHIP SHOULD BE EXTENDED TO THE DEGREE THAT PREVENTS SOMEONE BLIND WITH IGNORANCE FROM MISLEADING AN INNOCENT OR SUSCEPTIBLE AUDIENCE.

23. ALL FANTASY AND MYTHOLOGY SHOULD SOLELY BE PRESENTED AS FICTION, ESPECIALLY TO CHILDREN; AGAIN, TO AVOID THE POSSIBILITY OF RELIGION CREEPING INTO OUR SOCIETY'S REALITY PERSPECTIVE.

24. WE ARE NOT ALL BORN WITH EQUAL POTENTIAL, AS SUCH WE HAVE DIFFERING STRENGTHS AND WEAKNESSES AMONG US. THIS DOES NOT JUSTIFY OPPRESSION BUT MERELY CHALLENGES US TO DEFINE A ROLE FOR OURSELVES THAT PROVIDES CONTENTMENT.

25. IN ORDER TO ELECT LEADERSHIP, THE VOTING POWER OF ANY INDIVIDUAL SHOULD BE CALIBRATED AGAINST THEIR OVERALL CHARCTER( WHICH IS A COMBINATION OF THEIR LEVEL OF INTELLIGENCE, EDUCATION, AND EMPATHY), GRANTING MORE VOTING POWER TO THOSE INDIVIDUALS THAT HAVE PUSUED EXCELLENCE IN ALL OF THOSE CATEGORIES.

26. LEADERSHIP OF ANY SOCIETY SHOULD TAKE THE FORM OF A CONSORTIUM, FORMED OF MANY SPECIALIZED MEMBERS.

27.POVERTY DUE TO APATHY IS INEXCUSABLE AND PUNISHABLE. ALL OTHER FORMS OF UNFORTUNATE POVERTY WILL BE REMEDIED BY SOCIETAL POOLING OF APPROPRIATE RESOURCES.

28. EVERY PERSON HAS THE DUTY TO MAXIMALLY EXERT THE INFLUENCE OF MORAL LAW, EITHER BY THEIR DIRECT INTERVENTION (WHEN INTERPRETATION OF THE LAW IS NOT IN QUESTION), OR BY INCITEMENT OF LAW ENFORCEMENT SERVICES.

29. MASSIVE ACCUMULATION OF WEALTH IS ONLY PERMITTED IN THE LIGHT OF THE NOBILITY OF ITS EVENTUAL INTENDED PURPOSE, WHICH MUST IN SOME WAY BENEFIT HUMANITY AS A WHOLE, BETTER KNOWN AS PHILANTHROPY.

30. THE BARBARIC NOTION OF TYRANNY, IN ALL FORMS, FROM CHILDHOOD BULLIES, TO DICTATORS, TO THE ULTRA-WEALTHY, MUST BE PREVENTED FROM SURFACING IN OUR SOCIETIES, AND INSTEAD THE PLACATION OF THE POWER-HUNGRY INSTINCTS MUST BE LIMITED TO ARENAS WHERE COMPETITION IS SANCTIONED.
