Living in a Chaotic Good Society

Living in a Chaotic Good Society

I don’t think there is any doubt we are currently living in a chaotic society where the wrong people have the power to execute at will those who offend them either politically or socially. Just exactly what that means is reflected by high random homicides of innocents, our police force and many others who happen to be in the wrong place at the wrong time these days. This could be a movie theater, a school or a shopping mall as there are no out-of-bounds targets these days. It is fair to say that today, human lives don’t matter as much as they did before this trend of killing sprees.

We have elected, appointed and chosen magistrates who have the power to execute at will those who offend society. The death penalty is mass production in many states and no end is in sight of its use in many states. Since the lethal cocktail is becoming rarer as time passes, legislation has returned to allow death by hanging or firing squad to execute those on death row.

Society is inundated with thoughts of the living, the dead and the undead zombies. The apocalypse is told in all manner of media that range from television series to movie theaters to video games on the Xbox or other media ingredients. We have evolved into a mindless, murder and mayhem society where random killings are daily events and attached with a twisted sense of vigilante enforcement by militants of all races and religious beliefs.

My point is, we are eager to invoke the death penalty to address fire with fire and an eye for an eye but we are missing the consequences of such harsh and cruel punishment as a general rule without regard to any case by case factors of every criminal case on the docket.

The truth is this kind of cyberpunk ideology is morally offensive in nature and drowning our society into immoral behaviors rather than finding the cure to all these criminal acts randomly committed around our country. Everything these days are overloaded with extremely violent, sexually explicit, and profanity videos or movies. There appears to be no moral prohibition these days and it’s becoming a growing threat for our children to cope with such forms of entertainment and influences.

One has to question what sort of human expectation is to turn out from these offensive methods of displaying improper and lewd behaviors all the time. The saturation of this kind of media has caused confusion between right and wrong as well as good and evil. It leaves one to choose a frame of mind that creates objections to their root moral values and offers them an unrealistic release of emotions via an uncontrolled media causing much perversion of their judgment capabilities and problem solving abilities.

These morally offensive chaotic causing media instruments are affected by love, hate, and many other emotions. It mixes the mind between the fundamental need of the law versus the erred misguided handcrafted need of the law.

In other words, this confusion creates inconsistent choices and determination between the rational judgment and irrational results based on how this media affects their minds and way of thinking.

For a lack of understanding, the best way to create or restore order is to recraft the fundamental laws and carry out the law itself in a reasonable and humanely method that shows human regard to respect, dignity, compassion and kindness, while at the same time take into consideration the suffering of the victims in every case. The problem is not with the laws, the problem is how the law was meant to be carried out.

In today’s society, people have taken the role of judge, jury and executioner randomly and arbitrarily based on various dynamics in their own personal lives. Some are mentally ill while others are sane and copiously evil in mindset. Yet under most circumstances, they are all treated the same. Instead of the natural law to repress all vices, the law itself has become a vice and created corrupted systems that harm the individuals more so than the law was intended to do. People want to enforce a strict moral code but it is the code that is up for grabs and interpretation making it hard to see the justice in the process.

This kind of discourse is confusing and chaotic for many. The intention of the lawgiver is to make the citizens moral.  The purpose of human law is to lead men to virtue, not suddenly, but gradually. There is now a conflict of interest between law enforcers and judges and prison contractors who maintain mass incarceration terms to be a reasonable means to enforce the law giving capitalism a boost in profits and judges supporting imprisoning people for longer periods of time. 

Those unable to adjust will remain a prisoner forever under this kind of intention by the criminal justice system and is focused on long prison terms. Thus we choose between those who can regain their virtue and those imperfect and carry the burdens of never seeing freedom again. these imperfect ones, being unable to bear such precepts, would break out into yet greater evils  causing more harm either repetitively or more severe in nature as they reoffend multiple times and never reach their opportunity for their freedom.

This confusion has led to a lack of misunderstanding of human law, at least from my own perspective and puts men and women and more common now than ever before, our children,  in conditions of despair and hopeless opportunities for moral reform or development. This view of the law is dangerous and shows that in the end, lead to more violence and criminal behavior.

Police, prosecutors and judges may be zealous in the prosecution of an extreme form of Law, but zeal cannot change the morally offensive character of that Law. Nothing will change unless we change the way the law is enforced and how the sentencing is imposed.
