Existentialism Philosophy

For Apolonio Latar

To answer your question why you probably would not rape the woman, it is not in your best interest. Morality has nothing to do with it. People do what they want to do, irrespective of morality. The "risk" of facing bad consequences from raping the woman may be worth it to you, maybe not. That is your choice. No one can make that choice for you; no government, no policeman, and no preacher. In closing my posting I urged people to view the effects of their actions. For me personally, having sex with a woman who did not enjoy it also would not be satisfying, so I have no desires or fantasies in that regard.

We need not be burdened by morality, but having intelligence would be good. My admonishment therefore is not to be a good person, as if moral, but be a rational person. If that leads to morality as some argue, then so be it, and may it lead to morality for them. I believe it is moral to be rational, and not rational to be moral. In other words it is good, right, and appropriate to use the brain. We are better served by more people using their brains than we are by establishing what people should be thinking about.
