Random Thought


Just a passing yet serious thought came to my mind one night with a mug of beer in one hand as to what i have achieved till now (I am 26 now). This wild thought gave me goose bumps and i gulped the remaining beer in one shot to give adrenaline push. I began by questioning back to my soul in search of satiating answers. After a while i was able to think this - I have a good network of friends...am a graduate from one of India's premier college...am now self-sustaining individual.To be frank i don't find any value additions in me instead i have turned into hardcore addict. Few days back i started reading Ayn Rand's book 'The Virtue of Selfishness which she talked about Ethics and values. Values in one's life determine the purpose of his/her life which has been granted to him by almighty and Ethics are a set of rules that defines what is 'GOOD' or 'BAD'. What is good for me may be bad for you!!! So there is a ambiguity i feel. Why can't great philosophers like Ayn rand create standard Ehics for each one to follow? Say for example Mr X is working in IT company and he is not so good at technical skills but still he managed to grow faster just because he's a boot-licker. Other's more skillful are left behind since they consider licking against their ethics.Leaving it upon individual to decide upon Ethics is to create challenges or something else - need an answer. What does John Galt say- "It's the age of moral crisis." What is moral-code?
                                All i can imply is that i am going through moral-crisis. Need to bring a change. It's time to say,"BRING IT ON:CHEERS".

What may be right for you may not be right for others. It is a matter of perception. Believe in yourself and everything will be alright.

@Purba I can understand this point that it's all a matter of perception but what about a person stealing or committing a crime...tht's bad 4 me but is it good for him...can v call it as moral value of him to steal...I am confused :(
Can't v set a standard 4 moral values?
