Delightful Trip to the LaLa Land

Some time ago, I have learnt to embrace an elightenment spirite in the world of solidary.

My thinking was revolving around philosophical conception and endless introspections, that  were all thought to be so insightful to me at the time.

I remembered the time when we were watching “Batman- Dark Knight”. While everyone were indulging themselves in Heath ledger’s acting skill, I was way too preoccupied with peculiar thoughts such as: what was the underling message that of

“I believe… whatever doesn’t kill you simply makes you…stranger.”

I started questioning why serial killer anticipates in vicious killing games and why a conventional civilian would turn into an immoral psychopath? I developed awareness of my own mismatched thinking pattern and that was aggravating.

Many of his quote addresses morality:

‘Do I really look like a man with a plan, Harvey? I don’t have a plan. The mob has plans, the cops have plans. You know what I am, Harvey? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do if I caught one. I just *do* things.’

“Introduce a little anarchy, you upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I am an agent of chaos. And you know the thing about chaos, Harvey? It’s fair.”

Indeed, fairness does disturb the established order to a certain extend. Fairness is a principle, like Liberty or Freedom which does not neccessarily exsit. In a civilised society, according to On Liberty, the rule of conduct of cilvilians are governed by moral coercion of public opinions.

“People on the 2 boats had to kill each other or be killed. To sweeten the deal, one of the boats was full of inmates.”

“Don’t talk like one of them, you’re not! Even if you’d like to be. To them, you’re just a freak–like me. They need you right now. When they don’t…they’ll cast you out. Like a leper. See, their morals, their code: it’s a bad joke. They’re dropped at the first sign of trouble. They’re only as good as the world allows them to be. You’ll see, when the chips are down these civilized people will eat each other.”
