My mom always used to say, “Never let a mosquito bite you”. For someone like me who loves to clean, a mosquito bite can be a huge hassle. It’s not like you want to walk around with a bunch of bites, but they’re going to make you feel like a total freak. So, when I’m cleaning, I like to use a mosquito net to catch any mosquito bites that might be attached to my head or neck.
I’ve been on the web for a while, I’ve learned the ropes, it’s just that when it comes to making new habits, I tend to be more inclined to make certain that I don’t accidentally do something stupid or that I go out of my way to make certain things feel a little better. I don’t like when a person says, “I’m not trying to kill you.
It really is a small price to pay for feeling a little more human. Most of us have seen the movie “Baz Luhrmann’s The Great Gatsby”, directed by Baz Luhrmann, where the main character is told he doesnt have to kill someone if he doesn’t want to. It is not that easy, but it is possible to live a normal life when you dont want to, and this is great news for a world with our current situation.
If we want to take this a bit further, what about when we say, we dont want to kill someone, but we are willing to kill them if they do it for us? The point is that we are talking about a situation where we are willing to kill someone for someone who is not us. That is called “moral equivalence.
The thing is, we cannot always decide to kill someone, but we do have the power to choose whether or not we want to do it. It is not always easy, but it is possible to live a normal life.
The problem is with those who do not have the moral power to choose whether or not to kill. The situation is most of the time one level down from being morally equivalent to killing someone. There are those who do not care and would rather kill than bother with the moral complexity. There are also people who do not have the moral power to choose whether or not to kill, but they have the power to choose whether or not they want to kill someone.
I have been meaning to write about it for a year, but I am so far past my limit of thought, I have not even thought of what I would say. The situation is most of the time one level down from being morally equivalent to killing someone. There are those who do not care and would rather kill than bother with the moral complexity.
I am one of these people. I would rather kill a mosquito than pick a fight. And you would too.
“To kill a mosquito is to kill a mosquito,” says the voice in your head that tells you not to kill the mosquito. But that’s not a real quote from the movie. That’s what the mosquito says to you.
I think that what I’m trying to say is that the mosquitoes in the movie are almost as morally inferior to us that we are. And we are not even able to say it. The mosquitoes in the movie are so self-aware that they know that killing a mosquito is a form of selfishness. We can’t say to ourselves, “Hey, I’m a mosquito, I’m an individual.
