Well, I lie to myself, perfect is overrated. I’ve never liked my flaws. I don’t think anyone really does, but that’s besides the point. Unfortunately, one of my key flaws is one that makes me hate my imperfections. A vice that hates vices, can you imagine?
That fit into a group is not a priority in life. You can be part of the “cool” ones but that is nothing if aren’t happy. You will just spend your life following the society instructions or labels. Maybe we should brake some rules and try to find what really makes you happy, as Jerry did. I think that what Emile do was a very idiot reaction.
Self-Sacrifice and happiness are two topic that Ayn Rand argues about in a very objective and intellectual style, but because of the way she misinterpreted selfishness was wrong, the explanation of self-sacrifice was misleading. Rand fails to see the point of how society views happiness and fails to convey it. Rand argues that the society defines selfishness as it’s the “synonym of evil” or “brutes who tramples over piles of corpses to achieve their own ends.”(7). Even though this is not the case at all this is subjective and the interpretation is biased, one cannot disregard the part where she said “brutes who tramples over”.

This would directly contradict Pyrrho’s account of why the skeptic suspends judgement, since the skeptic should not trust his senses, inclinations, or societal conventions. Since Scharfstein is aware of Pyrrho’s account on why the skeptic suspends judgement, it is very odd that he would state that the skeptic loves humankind as a reasoning for giving equipollent
The problem with utilitarianism is that people view happiness differently, and it is impossible to accurately quantify the happiness people are experiencing. Therefore, for utilitarianism there is no accurate criterion to make judgement on, and there will be a problem if we simply use the idea of utilitarianism to make any decisions in real
Walters 2 Worldly people will never understand what it is like to be otherworldly. Things that people do not understand are automatically counted as weird or strange. This means that all otherworldly people will be somewhat ostracized from worldly people because you are different. Being otherworldly if worth being made fun of.

Just like Juliet, people don’t notice the freedom they have until something righteous or miserable has occurred. One choice can be detrimental to one’s life. Nevertheless, it is hard to conceptualize the whole concept of free will, due to different perspectives and opinions. Despite the fact that free will may be inconclusive and controversial to readers, every effect has its cause and it can guide you into a position you never contemplated being
It is EQ, not IQ, that is most important. Some critics have attacked the concept of EQ, saying that "it doesn’t exist or that it is not relevant in our society."
