Hi everyone,
I have been doing a lot of thinking recently about human behavior and morality and wanted to see what your thoughts are on this. I think we react to situations very differently due to emotions rather than being as objective as possible. Clearly we have our different interests and subjective opinions about certain things, but do we actually try to act as objectively moral as possible in every single action/decision that we make? It seems that we make quick decisions based on logic and reason and obviously we don't have the time to stop and think in every situation and think to ourselves "how can I react to this as objectively as possible?" So my question would be how can we trust in our own subjective moral opinions/reactions/emotions to be as objective as possible? And do you think we should evaluate every decision we make and calculate how we should act or react? An example would be how different people drive differently, some people are more aggressive and some are very passive, but which one is the moral way to drive? I know this probably sounds stupid but I am curious to hear your guys thoughts.
- Mike
