Being Content with Being Bad

I think a very important intellectual hurdle that is absolutely necessary for clear thinking and happy living is being satisfied, content, or indifferent with being evil, or bad in a specific kind of way.

I own a pest control company. If someone wishes to make the argument that all life is precious I am forced into a dilemma if I care about being good. Either, I can’t take the argument seriously because it violates my self-interest, or I risk agreeing with them and having to act against my self-interest in order to be good. Luckily, I am in no such dilemma since I am indifferent to being “bad.”

This is why I tell someone that if murdering people makes you happy, it is just kind of logical that you do it. I murder everyone I want to murder. I also rape everyone I want to rape … Hey ladies, 😉🔪.

Too often people distort their thinking or happiness by trying to externally justify their choices.

Of course, I have some friends who might misunderstand my post. I am not happy or okay with murder, rape or anything else. I just respect my own choices and disposition more than I hope for external validation of those choices. I don’t want to rape and murder, not because it is wrong, but because I have empathy for others and it would destroy my life for many reasons. I think societies should stop people from raping and murdering because it is in people’s self-interest to do so.

Taking this opinion makes me never feel very conflicted about considering any idea or point of view.
