Ya, that is where I think I'm going with this. A "moral do-gooder" dislike. Isn't that crazy! Aren't ENFP's the epitome of moral do-goodism!? Please don't get me wrong here.. I still feel passionately about human rights, injustices. But It's almost like wherever there is a need, a genuine NEED.. people organize. And when they do someone almost ALWAYS finds a way to CAPITALIZE on it by appealing to your altruism. "Feed the Children" and you donate because ya, you want the kids to get fed.. but you didn't know that evey dollar you donate goes mostly towards ogranizational expense, and that .10 cents actually FEEDS THE CHILDREN!
I used to donate to United Way, until a story hit about something like 2 billion dollars being "unallocateable." Honestly I could go on and on with examples of corruption, but It'd take all day.
Another change. A mistrust of psychology in general. I LOVE psychology! Understanding behaviors and the mind fascinates me, always has. BUt you've got doctors taking kickbacks from pharmaceutical companies for prescribing X amount of Xanix, Prozac, Zoloft. I heard an advertisement on the radio the other day and it went something like this (in serious deep voice) "Do you pride yourself on a peaceful relationships? Are you lucky enough to say that you and your partner RARELY argue? Your relationship may be much worse than you realize. Studies show that partners that never fight have poor communication skills leading to opression, resentment, and apathy." And I thought to myself.. seriously? Like psychology doesn't have enough on its plate tagging future serial killers by age 6, and developing new behavioral techniques for virtually anyone that doesn't fit perfectly in the societal cube? You've now found a market creating doubt in peaceful relations?
It just seems like there is a bigger than ever agenda to tell people how to live their lives, and I don't want to be apart of it. I think that freedom is of the highest value. Free to be wrong, free to fail, free to smoke 3 packs a day, free to be a heroin junkie, free to be a racist (even if it makes you an ignorant turd) free to own a gun, free to not own a gun, free to not wear your seatbelt if your an adult, free to end yourself if you choose. I believe moral justification to be very dangerous, in that you can rationalize almost any heinous action in pursuit of the greater good. And I don't think it only rears its head with suicide bombers. I think it starts small in the form of any kind of intolerance.
