So I had this essay...

So how is everyone today? Doing good I would hope. I myself am pretty good, I want to go on a fanart binge but not until I clean my room. I can't work in a messy space it just ..blaah grates on my nerves. So anyway, I have been trimming down my buddy list. I went from 113 buddies now down to 62. Goes to show just how many people I don't talk to, because they hardly ever sign on.



On to other things I wrote an essay yesterday concerning Deductive Human Reasoning. It was pretty good I thought, and I did a sub-essay on societies views of the law at large. You know how it goes, no one can ever agree on who was guilty, and if it is ethical or not. Honestly, I believe if you committed a crime of great magnitude than there, you should be sentenced harshly. Especially if you rape/molest kids or even adults. Like the question I ask people (and it gets them quite a bit you'd be surprised) is along the lines of this...

    A robber breaks and enters into a man's home. The man hearing the noise grabs his gun and heads downstairs. The robber himself doesn't have a weapon on his person.  But he could at any moment grab the kitchen knife and perhaps kill the man. The man feeling threatened by the robber tries to get him out at first by threatening to shoot. If the robber advances the man shoots and kills the robber. Is this manslaughter or self-defense?

You would be surprised at how many people in the legal system see it as manslaughter. If someone is coming into your home, to take your belongings and potentially hurt you, you have the right to protect yourself, and any family that may be present. It's human nature to act upon instincts of survival. So to condemn the man for acting upon rational reasoning of scenarios of what could happen, is condemning the very basic instincts we were given by a higher power.

reminds me of an arguement I once made for the abolishment of minor cases of Resisting Arrest. It's human nature to avoid incarseration or being restrained. Why punish someone for, in minor instances (like my friend getting tagged with that because she flinched away from a cop reflexively when he put cuffs on her, despite her being completely co-operative afterwards and beforehand), what is nothing less than natural human psychology?

*shrug* who knows...

And when am I gonna get my phone call? *headtilt*
