I know this is cowardly way to end this, public anonymous forum in front of faceless strangers, but as the song goes; I am in fact tempted by the fruit of another. It has been a great relationship; don’t get me wrong we worked so well together over 3 or 4 years, but we are drifting a part. With any long term relationship after a while you crave something exciting and something new. Something which suits the new you… And that’s why I must say good bye, I am sorry determinism I have started a relationship with existentialism…
"come on now don’t look at me like that, I know we will always be friends, remember the time I used to you to explain that criminals are merely a victim of circumstances, and everyone laughed at us?' " fun time fun times." Or when I tried to explain that playing mouse trap actually made you a god? Those times are gone, but we will always have the memories."
Why the change of heart I hear you ask? I guess it’s the little things, I see too many people hiding behind their circumstances; the world is against me, I cant win in an all male world, anyone that says you're paranoid is in on the plot. You were a comfort zone, somewhere I could hide, I was not responsible for my choices when I was with you, sure it may be a factors and influences, but you have to accept I can make my own choices now, more importantly I can be held accountable. Nature and Nurture sure there is a level of that, sure poverty increases crime but there is still the choice between "Right" and "Wrong".
Moral evil and determinism
Yes I know it ties in well with a remote and uncaring god via the causa prima arguments, but what of causa Sui, what about self respect, what about self discipline and control. I have lived by these why do you expect me not to expect the same of others.
What is Causa Prima
I know it hurts, but I am seeing people are responsible for their problems, debt especially, laziness and compliance drives these people, the path of least resistance, they can make an effort but only in an emergency. Why don’t they take control of there own lives?
Yes determinism its over, I promise I'll call you, hey we can even have coffee like we used to when I was at university. Ill think of you always..
