FireMadeFlesh’s story

Resident Aussie, Medical Radiation Scientist specialised in paediatrics, and eternally restless traveller. I’m an adrenaline junkie who can’t commit to any one extreme sport. I’ve dabbled in skydiving, white water rafting, mountain biking, and rock climbing, but I always return to my real passion – fighting.

I’ll take on any discussion involving politics, history, mythology, science, people, psychology, and performance cars.

Those who know me from when I first joined here will remember my strong views on religion and the supernatural. That’s the old me though, and you won’t often find me on those threads any more.

Most of all, I try to maintain a critical approach to my own ideas. If you can show me I’m wrong, I’ll appreciate it very much. But that can be a challenge, since I’m getting more hard-headed with time.

I still attribute the rise of developed countries in part to the increased moral standards over the last 300 or so years.

No argument there, it’s absolutely true. Economics however, not so much. If you think about yourself, your gain, you’ll fuck someone over for it sooner or later.

What I wanted to convey is that it is still better from a completely selfish point of view for an individual to be ethical.

I seriously don’t see how. Ethical people are not necessarily more affluent on average, there’s ethical poor people, and there’s unethical poor people. Ethical rich people are much much fewer. Ethical politicians are almost an oxymoron, expecially considering the concept of electoral promises.

What you’ve proven, truthfully, is that ethical people have a less marked gap between rich and poor people, while with unethical people you range from the skaters you mentioned to Dick Cheney. Which is true but still doesn’t mean that being ethical brings youmore money, it just brings you more stability.
