    Default To each their own (mature language)

    I am firm believer in allowing people to be any kind of fuck up they want to be.Once a person has received the endowment of basic communication and functioning skills why not let them explore their own world?
    • let people get an education
    • let people fall into their own creative outlets
    • or let people fall away from all of it and maybe give them the chance to go in a new direction before everything innovative dies
    That's my philosophy, yet I can't get anyone to leave me alone and I doubt I'm the only one. What's wrong with letting someone fail a little? Maybe we'll actually advance as a people if those who are going to fail anyways fail and those who are going to succeed (having more success than others pretty much being the underlying idea of evolution) succeed and gain a little damn influence! It's quite possible that we might actually become aware of people's actual limits and strengths. There's potential to expand and advance vertically and horizontally and it's wasted (imo) because no one is allowed to fail. Instead everyone is cattled into some homogenized form of success.

    I'm really not liking the word 'failure' because I see a mistake made and learned from as a success.

    Mistakes are an important aspect in growth and development, if it you learn from it. I think people will realize they are stronger than they thought were if they are allowed to make mistakes. So I agree with your point of letting others make their own lives.

    I'm sorry if the word failure offends but it's kind of meant to. I'm using such a strong word because I'm trying to say that everything that I've seen to be perceived as a complete "failure" isn't so bad at all. Plus the word mistake is an error as opposed to failure which is to just not achieve something. In that way the word mistake makes completely different implications, don't you think?

    Oh, I wasn't offended by any measure. Thanks for caring though.

    I suppose I was thinking of a big enough 'mistake' that it induced a failure, not just an error but something too big to repair. So now that we have our definitions down...

    I am a firm believer in what doesn't kill you makes you stronger, I also think that ones life is up to them, to make of it what they will. I agree with you that 'failure' is a matter of perspective. I think it is healthy to see opportunity and advancement in either failure or chaos.

    It was stupid enough to never be forgotten.

    I looked for a song by King Missile called Failure, if you can find it's funny. You may like it.

    If the consequences and costs where purely individual I'd agree with you.

    What if some people find their own success in giving others advice on how not to "fail"?

    Well it would involve abolishing most of the education, health and social services, possibly even the police or military.

    What do you do if someone fails at being a parent and their child suffers neglect or dies?

    I don't understand where your abolishment so many systems comes into play here, is that purely a response to niffer? If it's a response to me I think we've miscommunicated a bit because I'm not talking about something nearly so radical.

    You can let people fail at being parents and then simply take their children away, that's what we do today. Letting someone fail doesn't mean not upholding the system in which they're failing. I can proudly tell you this as a product of failure parents and the foster home system.
