There is no such thing as a safe culture. You enjoy the illusion of safe within your own culture, because of in group beliefs, but essentially PEOPLE are dangerous. That's why I like to read murder mysteries. Homicide detectives see the potential for evil in everyone. Even dear sweet Agatha Christie understood this, which was why each of her characters were flawed, even if they had a perfectionistic Fi moral disgust towards the murderer animal.
Racism stems from this concept - that only the in group is safe, or only the out group is dangerous.
There is logic to this - that trusting the in groups are safe, or that the PRINCIPLES of some cultures are less preferable to our own. I'm mostly on the side of the latter - the former can be an erroneous conclusion, but the latter is completely open to debate based upon real results of equality, progress and general safety. Which is why I love African Americans but don't trust Muslims.

What is really evil? Is it just murder? Is it stealing just to only deprive the individual? Is it pride? Is it putting yourself over to others where it becomes harmful?
Some say evil is simply the lack of good. Is it possible to be neither good or evil? Is there such thing as true neutrality?
Why do Christians find premarital sex, masturbation, homosexuality (not all but some) find evil? Is it a mock or jest against God and the sacred power to procreate?
Is simply offending God evil?
Is swearing evil?
Is me questioning everything evil? Is taking my mind to every possibility and thinking things entirely through that I trust that over faith to be evil?
Is to abandon a group evil?
Is the lack of love for one another evil?
Is lying an absolute evil?
Is hiding yourself behind a mask or using online evil because of misdirection or hiding of true interpersonal interaction evil?
Is not believing in someone evil?
Evil evil evil.
Does evil even exist?
Anyway, I think humans that simply harming someone must be evil? Is it really that simple? If so if means to an end has harm in it, should it never be done even if there is no possible thought out solution available?
Gosh, how funny we just simply don't question our social constructs.obviously you're going to get nothing from reading this

It has gotten to the point finally of, 'whatever'. Or at least has moved pretty close to it.

Any typological reason why ENFJ 3s and 2s wouldn't like me? (I know I'm seriously getting into "folk typology" territory here, so I'll take any answer with a grain of salt -- but I'm still curious.)Originally Posted by Nørrsken impersonating EJCC
