Thought 381: The Good Suffer

Good people, that is to say, moral people often suffer, not only at the hands of human predators, but also at the hands of our disjointed collective reality, as they seek to understand and make right the Hell that we are in. 

It is a hard fact of life that evil scum who harm others in their quest for egoic fulfilment might be perfectly content and free from neurosis and suffering whilst moral people who do care about truth and morality will fall prey to such god-awful conditions as depression, anxiety, mania, psychosis, self-loathing and so on.

Not only that but people will often look down on you and turn on you if you happen to be vulnerable and in a bad emotional and mental state, even though you have done nothing wrong. 

It's like those psychopathically superficial American radio shows which pour scorn on an unemployed caller but talk to an ex-con murderer as a regular guy and one of the gang.

Moreover it is almost never the perpetrators of abuse and harm that suffer from the consequences of their actions as opposed to the victims of that harm who will internalise the abuse and become unwell and unhappy. 

These phenomena according to which the immoral thrive and the moral suffer, despite alleged Natural Law principles, is perhaps the biggest flaw in Mark Passio's thinking, in so far as he fails to take into account the fact that being moral, i.e. caring about the state of the world and one's fellow human beings, does in fact lead to suffering and neurosis whilst immoral, predatory behaviour arguably leads to contentment and success. 

ScruffyOwlet's Tree is a blog created with good people in mind who may have suffered at the hands of others and our culture (not to mention from themselves) so that they may be less confused in their apprehending the state of the world and consequently less confused in their own being and may become at peace realising that they are not at fault for what wicked wolves and silly sheep are doing to our collective manifested reality.
