Amoral VS Immoral

Reading opens minds. Hopefully for the better.

Rant in response to an irresponsible commentator: Posts are not necessarily my viewpoints. Please read.

The Debate
Both can be said to be without morals. One meaning that one is the anti of morality. While the other implies the “without-ness” of morality & can include innocence. And what one told you that being amoral was actually not wrong? That we actually should be amoral? That we must make decisions with our heads & hearts without being constrained.

Constrained by what others think of us. Constrained by what we have been taught by our elders & teachers is correct. Constrained of being laughed at by others or being taken as a fool. Constrained by being misunderstood. Constrained to avoid appearing impolite or even rude – especially so in a public or business setting.

Yet if being amoral allows us to do what we should without caring what the world thinks. And if our intentions & objectives are good, doesn’t that also mean that being amoral is the best way to pierce through & accomplish things without being shackled by prejudice, culture or other human beings?

Offering the Other Cheek
Have we all grown up believing that those who offer the other cheek are either virtuous or completely stupid? Two ends of the extremes? One side believing that we are pious & just then when slapped we offer the other. And the other side believing that it’s all an eye for an eye & only idiots would do that?

What if that it’s rather the reason or result that matters most? That sometimes offering the other cheek is the right to do to make a statement that of compliance & love. While sometimes we should beat the crap out of the person violently to ensure the person never ever strikes another person again.

The End Result
Is it worth being consciously amoral to achieve the desired end results? How do you control between being detachedly amoral compared to knowing when you are being wickedly evil? Will amorality be the pitch black shining gleaming light that scythes at the shroud of foolish nonsense clearing the way for many great things? Or will amorality be but a tool of evil immorality that deceives & eats away at us?

Have you ever though how does your inner self really looks like?

  1. Interesting post Stev, as always.


    Off topic; the password is still the same for the protected posts. Just so you know in case you’ve forgotten about it … Heehee.

  2. Being right and wrong only looks easy on the paper, we can just say this guy should do this and that, as if we can foresee his problem, heh, wait till we are in his shoes.

    Heck, as (so called)nice as I am now, how I wish to be a prick one day, surprise buttsecks everyone near me.

    My inner self ? I want to see my inner mate as a dark figure, with left red eyes and can turn into a werewolf ala hulk….okie that’s too fantasy-ish cause the warhammer picture made me think so ! :O

  3. @kyels: thanks. yups had dropped by your blog to enjoy the stunning pix a number of days back =)

    @yungjie: true that things are always easier said then done, and it’s easy to judge others while forgetting our own flaws. (Nampak kutu di seberang sungai tapi tak perasan gajah di depan mata – or something along that lines of a malay proverb :P); Werewolf hulk eh? Maybe you’re right that that’s what’s inside you! 😉

  4. @mirror-me: so do share how does your wonderful inner self reflect compared to your outer devil? 😉 p/s: thanks

  5. @jem: true. we really do need to start inside out. and having peace with our ownselves inside us matters first & foremost of all =)

  6. I think morality is based on agreed values at the heart of which is a desire to live peacefully. Morality works when we see peace as a goal. When the goal is self-satisfaction or gratification, morality becomes the police dog of society. Then we need it to protect ourselves from the selfish among us who would undermine society for their own pleasure.

    I often wonder how and why some folks get far, far away from themselves and have no idea about that personal peace you describe from which all things should begin.

  7. It is my belief that morality is an illusion. At the end of the day, I think it boils down to what I like and what I don’t like – anything else is emotional window dressing.

    You know, a response to this or a discussion of morality could very well be a whole blog entry 🙂

  8. @sandy: very truthful in depth perception of morality there.
    i have a theory that we are so often caught up (falsely) by people & things around us that we end up getting a very warped view of things

    @whatever: *chuckles* you may be right as well that it’s all merely an illusion 😉

  9. Thought-provoking. I was tempted to say, “I just ask ‘what would Jesus do’?” I lead with my heart in matters of morality. I define it differently than most. I do not judge people by what they do, but by what they allow to happen on their watch, so to speak.

  10. Can someone help me with this question “Give an account of morality in your working place.Indicating the key moral component(good,Immoral and amoral)”
