I was just sitting around reading some works of Galileo. I took a break, and after reading a play review my sister wrote, decided to look up the Wikipedia article on morality. Then I started to think about that, and decided to sketch a few of my moral ideas down… for something I’m planning to write later. I will not address the why behind these thoughts just yet. So, here goes:
- Morality does not stick. You may be moral some times and not moral other times. You are immoral only while you are breaking some moral stipulation below.
- Enforcing any contract is immoral. A man cannot be bound to what another man said he would do. This includes marriage. A man may be constantly changing.
- It is immoral for any man to involve himself in the free decisions/actions of others without invitation. An invitation can come from any directly involved person.
- It is immoral to not preserve one’s own mind, body, and moral way of life by any means required.
- It may not be immoral to kill another immoral human being. It is immoral to kill a moral human being.
- It is immoral to tell a lie that would not preserve the mind, body, and/or moral lifestyle of another individual. This is the only case when honesty enters into morality.
- It is immoral to distribute any information as true or false without understanding why it is true or false. One should not claim to know/believe what one does not truly think they understand.
- Any action involving only non-cognizant entities is amoral, so long as it does not interfere with the preservation of the mind, body, and/or moral lifestyle of another individual.
There, my preliminary work on morals. A fairly accurate portrait of my own moral system, though I may be neglecting a few ideas. More work to come on these statements and their implications at a later date.
