You’re on the right track…but a few steps off. We have choice in this world. It just so happens that the choices we make are determined by our genetics and (to a lesser degree) our environment. The idea of choice isn’t changed; it still exists. It’s just more complete. And with the genetic desire to make certain choices, we have the desire to A) Help, B) Cause harm (it’s actually a bit deeper than that, but for the sake of this debate, I’ll stick to those as the basic areas…unless you demand that I go in depth). The fact that someone genetically chooses to cause harm to others doesn’t change the fact that said person is making the choice to harm others.
The only mental diseases that interfere with this (to my knowledge) choice are those that completely distort a persons view of reality (such as, said person believes he’s swimming, while in fact he’s killing someone.) It’s, in a way, psychological retardation. With Mr. Blonde, we have a sociopath, someone who purposely distances himself from mankind. He knows the difference between right and wrong, and he simply doesn’t care. He’s pure evil.
You're on the right track...but a few steps off. Ã‚Â :D
Everybody has his own reality in which he looks at the world, if a person thinks he is swimming but is actually killing someone, then that means for him that he IS just swimming!
And how does one determine what is really real? Only the individual mind can determine that within its limited human form.
Free choice doesnt excist, its just logical behaviour for someone...everything that person is in one moment in time determens which choices he 's making...he cant choose anything that doesnt seem logical to him. So making that choice isnt an option but a logical step and in a way determend! imo...like animals behave....for instance a cat...he doesnt have free choice, he acts on what he IS, and does and doesnt make real choices...just everytime the logical next step...I see humans in the same way, just with an expanded package of impulses in the brain.
Have you read Schopenhauer? He talks about this....really mindblowing stuff!
