And I'm Thinking,

    Principles.

    Howdy, readers. How've you guys been? Haven't blogged in awhile now. I'm just barely finding time to blog nowadays. Remember as a kid, or even now, receiving a lecture for something you did wrong? Okay, lemme rephrase that. Ever gotten a lecture or a scolding for mistakes that you thought were minuscule? And the end of the conversation would be "It's a matter of principle! It doesn't matter if it's 15 minutes or 50 minutes. You are still late!"


    So, yeah. Like, whatever right? Hold your horses. Back to the conversation, I'm just saying that hypothetically lah, being 15minutes late is quite bad. So you march off swearing and cursing reasoning with yourself and wondering what you did wrong for stealing an eraser - which was even unintentional.

    It's the matter of principle!! So, whatever. If all these lessons in life teach you about not doing anything bad due to principle, what do you do once you've committed to something bad? Do you keep on going committing that "sin"(exaggerating btw) since you've already broken that principle? OR are there another set of principles to follow? Since you've already stolen a pen, why not go for 2 pens? WHY not a whole stationary set? What's a stationary set to a whole bookshop with a 5-digit income? It wouldn't hurt, yes?no?


    Another aspect of it, is the magnitude of the crime. Magnitude? Principle? If you stole a car, you'd of course be involving yourself in a bigger heist than if you were to steal a pencil case. Does the concept of principle fall? Does it not? Or is the principle of committing a crime on a larger scale a new set of principles altogether? Everything starts to contradict now and again.

    Of course, in the court of law, both apply, breaking of principles, even the very basic to the core. And, the magnitude as well. Is there a case where only principle is involved? or only the sole influence of magnitude? Mmm, I'd suggest no. It's your call, actually. Logic, taken into account, you have to figure out what you had done wrong and apply if it was the magnitude and principle. And it is very common that it involves both. Even if they say it's the principle, it's the magnitude as well.


    And logical thinking needs a lot of brainpower, I might add, omfg. Haha. At the end of the day, I guess life tends to be like that, blurring lines of facts from textbooks forming a fat,gray,bland line of all lessons of life. Hope you've enjoyed the post. Somehow I'm losing my ideas and my blogging content, what do you guys think? Maybe i'm just tired, lol.
